Donald Trump ditched Super Bowl party with Patriots losing big

By releasing Romo in the offseason, Dallas would save the $5.1 million prior to free agency, which would make the 2017 cap a little easier to manage. If it waited to trade him, Dallas likely would carry the $24.7 million cap charge for at least a few days.

Alternatively, the Cowboys could wait until after free agency begins and designate Romo a post-June 1 release. That would give Dallas no immediate cap relief, but it would split the $19.6 million in dead charges across two years on June 2 and give the Cowboys a salary cap windfall for the regular season.

President Donald Trump made it no secret he was pulling for the Patriots to beat the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.

But Trump didn’t stick around his own party to watch as New England staged a historic comeback.

Dan Williams Kids Jersey With friends Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Co. trailing 28-3 in the third quarter, the White House press pool noted Trump departed Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he was hosting a Super Bowl 51 party. The Patriots then scored 25 unanswered points to force overtime, by far the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Those on Twitter had already begun blaming Trump for jinxing the Patriots with his pregame prediction of an eight-point victory. He was close, as it turned out, and made sure to celebrarte the comeback he presumably didn’t watch after the game was over.

What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!

It’s so in the past that it’s not even relevant anymore.

Post-fight interview: I don’t regret anything,Machado said that night. It’s part of the game. Reactions fly. When somebody’s throwing 99 at you, it’s going to hurt. You can ruin someone’s career. You don’t think in that situation. You just react to it.

Harper: I don’t want to go on a baseball field and try to fight somebody. … It’s so in the past that it’s not even relevant anymore. They won the World Series that year. I don’t even think he should be thinking about what happened in the first round. He should be thinking about wearing that ring home every single night.

Edge: Harper

Game Youth Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey Final score: Machado 2, Harper 2 (one draw). Looks like any free-agency decisions will have to come down to baseball merits.

While Conforto played well in a limited role early in the season, he has been even better since Cespedes was placed on the DL. The 24-year-old has 35 hits in 107 at-bats with nine home runs and 25 RBIs after replacing Cespedes in the lineup.

Even more impressive has been Conforto’s eye at the plate. He walked just seven times in April compared compared with 16 base on balls in May to raise his OBP over the .400 mark.

Conforto is looking more like the rookie slugger who emerged in 2015 rather than the struggling fifth outfielder who was shuttled back and forth between Queens and the minors in 2016. The Mets needed Conforto to step up. He did that and more.

With Cespedes nearing a return, it will be interesting to see how the Mets align their outfield to keep Conforto in the everyday lineup. It’s safe to say Curtis Granderson’s days as a starter are over and Juan Lagares is better suited as a platoon player, leaving a vacancy in center field. The Mets can choose to play Cespedes or Conforto in center field, but with Cespedes’ balky hamstring, the safe bet is that Conforto will play between Cespedes and Jay Bruce in the outfield.

It was an encouraging offseason for the Jaguars.

Marrone isn’t the most exciting hire, but the best thing about him for the Jaguars is that he’s not Gus Bradley. He’s also paired with new executive vice president Tom Coughlin. The three-time Super Bowl winner was the first coach in Jaguars history, and he has returned to help push the team back on track from an executive role.

An offense that redefines itself with a downhill rushing attack could complement an already strong defense that looks primed to be even better in 2017. And not having Bradley on the sideline can only be an encouraging thing at this point.

It was an encouraging offseason for the Jaguars.

But so was last year. And with so much hype derailed in 2016, there aren’t nearly as many ready to jump on the Jacksonville bandwagon again in 2017.

There are so many reasons to believe in the Jaguars now, but I can’t actually buy it. Bortles is still the quarterback and they’re going to have to prove things on the field first before I can trust that anything is different.

I have been rocking back and forth in my chair breathing into a paper bag ever since I saw this music video with Gronk in it, and this is absolutely not a goof. It’s the greatest thing ever.

There is way too much packed into this 3:08 video. We need to slither through this whole dang thing. Hold onto your butts, because this is happening.

The music video opens with a shot of the Vegas skyline before we are shown the interior of a bar. A woman is sitting alone, before Gronk walks in — or walks isn’t the right word. He saunters up.yankees_1179_40942faa042d5251-180x180

Seahawks’ window hasn’t closed … yet

By most objective measures, the Seattle Seahawks’ 2016 season was a success. They went 10-5-1, won the NFC West title, and advanced to the Divisional round of the playoffs. A lot of teams would love to have that kind of year.

However, the Seahawks were merely good, not great, which feels like a disappointment after a string of dominant performances. The core team that went to two straight Super Bowls (and won in 2014) is largely intact, but there are some cracks starting to form in the foundation.

What our job is, as American citizens, is to maintain the health of these young athletes for the entirety of their life. If there’s something we can do to limit this risk, it needs to be done immediately.”

With that, it was the NFL’s turn. Generally, the league, to that point, had denied McKee’s research and argued that science doesn’t point to a link between CTE and football. Except Schakowsky’s question to Jeff Miller, the NFL’s senior vice president for health and safety, melted the football empire’s stone wall.

The answer to that question is certainly yes …,Miller said.

While the Texans managed to win the AFC South and reach the Divisional round, it was obvious they were headed for a divorce from Osweiler. Sure enough, on the first day of free agency, the Texans banished Osweiler to Cleveland in an NBA-style salary dump trade.

Since O’Brien arrived in 2014, Houston has had eight different starting quarterbacks, a who’s-who of journeymen, has-beens, and never-weres. We’re talking guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Mallett, Case Keenum, Brian Hoyer, and T.J. Yates. Even Brandon Weeden showed up for one start, to give you an idea of how desperate Houston was getting.
