  • Manning on Target at First Bronco Practice

    New quarterback Peyton Manning ran the offensive practice during the Denver Broncos workout Monday. After missing last season with a neck injury, it was the first time the media witnessed Manning throwing the ball since last year's training camp.

  • I'll Have Another wins Preakness, Triple try next

    BALTIMORE (AP) — I'll Have Another did just that, winning another Triple Crown race with even more flash and dash than he did in the Kentucky Derby.

    By bolting past Bodemeister — again — this time in Saturday's Preakness, all that stands in the way of racing glory is the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

    Win that and the smooth-striding 3-year-old will find himself in the company of Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed, the last to win thoroughbred racing's most coveted prize in 1978.

  • Pacers take 2-1 edge over Heat

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — LeBron James grabbed a seat on Miami’s bench, lowered his head and stared down at the floor. Way down.
    Roy Hibbert had 19 points and 18 rebounds, George Hill scored 20 and Danny Granger 17 as the Pacers, showing more balance, toughness and togetherness than favored Miami, throttled the malfunctioning Heat 94-75 on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
    Overlooked during the regular season and given little chance to upset the reigning East champions, the Pacers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
    Game 4 is Sunday at raucous Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

  • Bodemeister still the favorite at Pimlico

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Just like in the Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister is the favorite in the Preakness.
    This time, Bob Baffert intends to justify the odds.
    Despite finishing second in the Derby, Bodemeister was installed as the 8-5 favorite for Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown. The colt, trained by Baffert, set the pace at Churchill Downs before being overtaken in the stretch by I’ll Have Another, who won by 1½ lengths.
    I’ll Have Another is the second-favorite in the Preakness at 5-2.
    Baffert, a five-time Preakness winner, was delighted to receive the No. 7 post in the 11-horse field.

  • Lakers struggling to right the ship

    Kobe Bryant hit his only shot that really mattered, then celebrated by slapping hands with Justin Timberlake. In the closing seconds of a Game 7 playoff win, the stars were aligning in Los Angeles once again, just like old times.
    Except this was a first-round playoff series against a seriously less talented opponent. And these aren’t anything like old times.
    The Lakers used to swagger through the playoffs with an attitude, mostly because Bryant would always seem to find a way to make them win. Now, after a rout at the hands of Oklahma City in Game 1 of the conference semifinals, even Bryant may not have anything left in his bag of tricks to use against the Thunder.

  • Cowboys meet Redskins on Thanksgiving Day

    IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys will get to spend a lot of time at home late in the season.
    While the Cowboys already knew they were playing in the NFL’s kickoff game Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the New York Giants, they now know where and when the rest of their games will be.
    The NFL released its full schedule Tuesday night, and Dallas will play five games at Cowboys Stadium in a span of six weeks before its regular-season finale at Washington. But that also means four road games in five weeks before that.
    The NFC East rival Redskins play at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day for the first time since 2002, potentially with Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III from Baylor as their quarterback.
