    Aaron Hernandez, the former star New England Patriot tight end who has been at the center of a police investigation since a body was found near his Massachusetts home, was charged Wednesday with the murder of a semi-professional football player. Hernandez, who reportedly pleaded not guilty to six charges that included murder and other weapons charges, did not react inside the Attleboro District courtroom, which was filled with journalists, victim family members and court officers.

    Your heartwarming story of the day: Anthony Nicodemo, the head coach for the Saunders High School basketball team in Yonkers, started to think about coming out of the closet after Jason Collins announced that he was gay in April. Last month, the 35-year-old went to an LGBT sports conference where he heard Collins speak firsthand. It was then that, despite his apprehensions about the reaction of his players and the risk of losing his position, Nicodemo resolved to finally come out. At a team meeting yesterday, he told a group of past and present players that he was gay. The...

And not just any strut, but the Fargo strut, shaking his hips, bent over forward, hands extended, all done slowly, suggestively -- and driving the crowd bananas. With Fargo's death today at the age of 82 -- he would have been 83 on June 26 -- there will be no more Fargo struts. And don't go saying that he stole the strut from "Nature...

And in just a few hours, the San Antonio Spurs have a shot at redemption after frittering away what should have been a slam dunk for a fifth NBA title and a deserved crowning of a dynasty. Game six is still fresh in my mind. Not only Tuesday's collapse when the Spurs were up by 5 with 20 seconds left. Yet another game six is still painful for this Texan. That of course was the 107th World Series when the Rangers were two...

    SALT LAKE CITY -- On the surface, it seems that Honduras is more than just depleted for its game against the USA Tuesday, it's decimated. It isn't just the number of players missing, it's the quality. Vital performers Boniek Garcia and Maynor Figueroa are injured, while hulking defender Victor Bernardez and defensive midfielder Luis Garrido are suspended. If the forced absences weren't enough, forward Jerry Bengtson has left the team after a spat with manager Luis Fernando Suárez, following the coach's decision to bench the New England Revolution forward in the team's last qualifier against Jamaica. While the U.S. may...

Riding shotgun, a 44-year-old writer with three-day-old stubble (that would be me). And in the back, buried beneath coloring books and blankets, a cherubic boy. We were all three in search of goats. “This truck is going to fall apart,” announced my 4-year-old son, Bodi, his mouth full of baby carrots. Abe, a longtime family friend, ignored the comment, pushing his rusty Toyota even faster. Sage and tumbleweed stretched across the flatlands; beyond, on the horizon, was our...

Kim and Temple got along great, and the boy wonder, who earned college player of the year honors, actually made the cut.

    ARDMORE, Pa. -- It didn't take long to figure out who was winning the U.S. Open on Friday: Merion. The historic course in suburban Philadelphia rose up and put down any thought it could be manhandled, with perhaps some help from the United States Golf Association. Despite a week's worth of rain and soft conditions that many figured would make the East Course vulnerable, scoring was in line with the typically high numbers often seen at the year's second major championship. When play was suspended due to darkness, Phil Mickelson was tied for the lead with Billy Horschel. Mickelson, the...

    Bring yourself to the game. Leave the cooler and backpack at home. The NFL is tightening stadium security starting this preseason, limiting the size and type of bags fans can bring to the game. The restrictions are designed to enhance security while speeding up entry into stadiums. With the exception of medically necessary items, only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches will be allowed. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags also will be OK, as will small clear plastic bags approximately the size of someone’s hand, with or without a...

    An international team of scientists has found 380-million-year-old fossilised fish with abdominal muscles, in the remote Kimberley region. The palaeontologists said it was rare for the soft tissue in the placoderm fossils to be so well preserved and it allowed them to map the muscular structure of the fish. Placoderms had a type of armour plating and were often compared with sharks. Flinders University palaeontologist John Long said researchers had not previously believed abdominal muscles would be found in fish. "We didn't expect these fish to have abdominal muscles, they're the abs that people have," he said. "Sharks don't have...

Yasiel Puig comes from another baseball culture, a freer, Cuban style, and he refuses to play by the blue-collar code of this country's game. In the minor leagues, he was famous for his bat flips, even in batting practice. Already, he has developed a dugout dance with Luis Cruz or Hanley Ramirez after he hits home runs.

    Now everyone can shoot like a trained marksman. For a price. A Texas-based applied technology firm has launched new smartgun technology that gives novice shooters the chance to participate in “extreme distance hunting.” TrackingPoint’s new precision guided firearm technology, XactSystem, allows the shooter to lock onto a target before allowing the gun to fire upon the intended target, much like a fighter jet’s “lock-and-launch” technology. And the firearm can consistently hit a target from over 1,000 yards away, the maker says. “Think of it like a smart rifle. You have a smart car; you got a smartphone; well, now we...

Just when you thought it was over, we found out Monday afternoon the Tim Tebow show is just getting started. ESPN's Ed Werder broke the news. Tebow will sign a deal with the New England Patriots, and by Tuesday he'll be right back where he belongs. In pads and cleats, working to get better. Running. Throwing. Leading.

    The strange part of the circus that surrounds Tim Tebow's every move – including reports Monday that he's going to sign with the New England Patriots – is that he does so little to keep it alive. He doesn't court the media. He doesn't say outlandish things. He doesn't complain about coaching decisions or teammates. He doesn't publicly beg for another chance. Even the quarterback's outward displays of faith (Tebowing, for instance) are nothing that dozens of other NFL players don't do each week after scoring a touchdown. Tebow is a good soldier, a young player who never said he...

    According to Rouillon, a sports science expert, the lesson to be learned from the preliminary results of his marathon experiment is that “bras are a false necessity”. Using a slide rule and caliper, Rouillon spent years carefully measuring changes in the orientation of breasts belonging to hundreds of women, at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (University Hospital) in Besançon. All the women involved in the study were aged between 18 and 35, although the professor was keen to stress that the group were not a representative of the global population of females.
