If the Ravens dont re-sign offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele, where will he wind up?
Kyle Larson switched to a backup car after being involved in a crash during Daytona 500 practice Wednesday. Larson was involved in a multi-car accident in the second practice session, a pileup that occurred after Ty Dillion cracked an oil cooler between Turns 1 and 2 at Daytona International Speedway. Dillon spewed oil on the track and on other drivers' windshields, and as cars behind him tried to slow, two-time Daytona 500 champion Michael Waltrip ran into the back of Ryan Newman.
Maybe that all-star game thing can help the Toronto Raptors. With Toronto hosting the first NBA all-star game outside the United States last weekend, television ratings went way beyond expectations. The Saturday night competitions almost broke the million mark on TSN and Sportsnet One, bringing in an audience 377 per cent higher than the one that witnessed last year's broadcast. The game itself was the second most-watched in Canadian history on Sunday, falling just short of what Michael Jordan drew in his return to the game in 1996. Friday's Rising Stars Challenge was 182 per cent above the 2015 version. Overall, 3.1 million viewers watched some or all of the game and 2.6 million the Saturday night competition. Canada even outperformed the U.S., where TNT saw its audience grow 6 per cent to 7.6 million. In fact, the NBA dominated the weekend ratings in the Great White North. And when was the last time that happened? Hint: never. It's amazing how much more popular an event becomes when your country or your city is hosting it. But a weekend full of big ratings isn't the only thing the NBA and its broadcasters got out of this. No doubt the two networks who own a chunk of the team are hoping the a ll-star euphoria rubs off on the Raptors, who needed a little euphoria spread their way.
Hey, if you're going to ding someone's windshield with a homer, the least you can do is help get it fixed, right?
By Mari Saito SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc is quietly inviting drivers for its new "on-demand" delivery service to handle its standard packages, as the online retailer known for low prices and razor-thin profit margins looks to speed up delivery times and tamp down its growing multi-billion dollar logistics bill. Amazon outlined details of its latest plan over the last few weeks in an email to contract drivers who deliver parcels for Amazon Flex, a program launched last year to handle speedy deliveries of common household goods to customers using Prime Now, a mobile app that comes with Amazon's popular $99-a-year Prime membership. If the gambit works, industry analysts said it could help Amazon contain its shipping costs, which grew more than 18 percent to $11.5 billion last year.
It’s got to be tough being Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby these days. The Big 12’s CEO oversaw a jump of $40 million from 2014 to 2015 — a boost of nearly 20 percent — and still his league languishes behind the SEC. One can assume Oklahoma president David Boren has made his colleagues aware of those figures. The […]
