United States Women's National Team superstar Alex Morgan announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Servando Carrasco on Monday with a clever Instagram photo showing off her shiny new ring.
She shared another picture on Twitter and expressed her happiness:
Morgan's national team teammate and friend Sydney Leroux was among the first to congratulate the 24-year-old:
This isn't blasphemy, though. It's simply George stating a fact.
Durant went off for 36 points on 14-of-23 shooting against the Indiana Pacers on Dec. 8.
On this day in 2004, Tracy McGrady scored 13 points in 35 seconds to help lead the Houston Rockets to a 81-80 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was pulled over and ticketed on Saturday night after driving 110 mph in a 70-mph zone.
According to Brendan Clark of WCBD-TV News in Charleston, the junior was traveling on Interstate 77 in Lancaster County, S.C. Per the report, he could have been arrested for reckless driving, but he was cooperative with law enforcement and was only issued a ticket.
Clowney entered the 2013 season as the surefire No. 1 pick in next year's NFL draft, and he still very well may be, but it has been hard to live up to the hype.
His production—three sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss—has been underwhelming. There were talks about his work ethic after he sat out of an October game against Kentucky with an injury, of which some questioned the legitimacy.
INDIANAPOLIS — LeBron James is an original in plenty of ways, but he doesn't claim ownership of everything.
Last season, after he began regularly symbolically pressing down on the floor after making a shot to shut up a hostile crowd, he made sure to attribute the action to a predecessor. After all, a certain former Lakers, Nuggets, Mavericks, Warriors, Blazers and Spurs guard was well known for use of the reverse "raise the roof" to punctuate whatever he'd done.
"Yeah, I'm on my Nick Van Exel thing right now, anybody who knows the history of the game," James said last February in Chicago. "The fans are always on me on the road, they stay on me, they continue to say I can’t shoot the ball, I can’t shoot."
Van Exel, who retired in 2006, is now a Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach. His celebratory legacy now lives on not only through James but in the football world as well.
