LAS VEGAS (AP) — Patrick Marleau surpassed “Mr. Hockey” for the most games played in NHL history. Marleau skated in his 1,768th career game to break Gordie Howe’s record when the San Jose Sharks lost to the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in a shootout Monday night. Though it was on the road, an exuberant pro-Golden Knights crowd gave Marleau a rousing welcome during warmups. Marleau’s wife, Christina, and four sons were in attendance, which wouldn’t have been possible in San Jose, where fans still aren’t allowed during the pandemic. “My wife, I couldn’t have done it without her over all these years,” an emotional Marleau said prior to San Jose’s morning skate. “She’s by far my biggest supporter. I can’t thank her enough and I can’t thank the boys enough. “My biggest fear is that I don’t thank everybody, that I’m going to miss somebody. If I miss somebody, I’m so sorry, but I will eventually, you know, try and make it right and thank everybody that needs to be thanked.

Postponed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PSL is scheduled to resume on June 1. The franchises have asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to call a meeting of the PSL governing council after it became apparent that many of the overseas players, who appeared in the league in February-March, might not be available on resumption. The PCB had to postpone the PSL 6 abruptly on March 4 in Karachi with just 10 out of 34 matches completed due to a surge in COVID cases among the players and officials. The board has released the schedule of the remaining matches, but franchises are concerned about the availability of foreign players. Big names such as Chris Gayle, Rashid Khan, David Miller, Saf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Alex Hales, Chris Lynn, Dale Stein, Tom Banton, Chris Jordon, Muhammad Nabi, Mujeeb ur Rehman, Liam Liviingstone, Rilee Rossouw, James Vince, Ben Cutting, Joe Denly, Joe Clarke, Samit Patel, Ravi Bopara Sajid Mahmood, Adam Lyth, Reece Topley, Lewis Greogry, … [Read more...] about PSL 6: Remainder of tournament might be devoid of usual overseas recruits
Since giving birth in May 2020, U.S. women’s soccer star Alex Morgan has been able to bring her daughter Charlie on the road. “It’s important to allow mothers the option to have their kids with them while they compete. I’ve been lucky to be able to do that every single camp,” Morgan said in a U.S. soccer media call earlier this month. But Morgan is currently unclear on whether Charlie will be able to join her at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics. In March, it was announced that – due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – overseas spectators won’t be allowed to travel to Japan for the Games. “We share the disappointment of all enthusiastic Olympic fans from around the world, and of course the families and friends of the athletes, who were planning to come to the Games,” International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said in a press release . While Morgan says she understands the decision, she is uncertain about what it will mean for her family given their specific … [Read more...] about With overseas fans barred from Olympics, new moms ask: what about my baby?
When Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky , arguably the world’s two best female swimmers, were suddenly, indefinitely without a pool three months before the Olympic Trials, a 71-year-old hall of fame masters swimmer offered to help. In March 2020, at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., Manuel and Ledecky were shut out as their state-of-the-art training facilities at Stanford closed. All of the public pools in the area did the same. The Olympics, at that point, were still scheduled for July 2020. The Olympic Trials were slated for that June. Other swimmers, either Stanford student-athletes or post-graduates, traveled home. Ledecky and Manuel, NCAA champions for the Cardinal who turned professional in 2018, stayed. “We were scrambling to find any water because the reality was the trials were going to be in about 12, 13, weeks,” said Greg Meehan , who coaches Stanford’s women’s team as well as post-grads including Ledecky and Manuel. “If we get stuck without being … [Read more...] about Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky needed a pool.

Mac Jones rose up NFL Draft boards with a stellar 2020 campaign with Alabama and Florida’s Kyle Trask is now getting potential first round buzz. Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher saw them both this past season. Both quarterbacks diced up defenses throughout the year but they certainly had elite talent around them. At Alabama, Jones threw to DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle and handed off to Najee Harris. Trask had guys like Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney . On Tuesday, Fisher broke down both quarterback’s games as they head to the NFL. "Well, they both were because they both had great wide receivers around 'em, too," Fisher said on ESPN’s ‘Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin.’ "They were both really good. I mean, what Mac did was amazing to me. They threw the ball down the field so much, but I mean they had the skillset to do it. But Mac did — he was so accurate with the ball. He understood where to go with it. Kyle diced you more. Their passing game was — it … [Read more...] about Jimbo Fisher breaks down games of Mac Jones, Kyle Trask
