Steelers' Harrison willing to talk PEDs after NFL's deadline

Harrison, who agreed Thursday afternoon to meet with the league later this month, and after the set deadline of August 25, wouldn't mind his question and answer session with the NFL being filmed live by the media for all to see. Televise it. In other words, Harrison, one of four players facing suspension if they don't meet with the NFL over the league's investigation into an Al Jazeera report from a year ago, doesn't appear anxious about meeting with the NFL, because he wants to film the whole ...



Ashton Eaton Wins Back-to-Back Gold for U.S. in Decathlon

Do you think this is really what it's like to have two Olympians in the house? What more could the now two-time Olympic champion Eaton do Thursday night to get just a little sliver of the limelight that beams so brightly on Usain Bolt? The Japanese men's 4×100-meter sprint squad progressed to the final at the Rio Olympics with the second-fastest qualifying time Thursday, a feat remarkable in itself, but made even more wonderful by beating Jamaica in the process.

Rain postpones IndyCar race at Pocono until Monday

For me, it doesn't matter if it's going to be today, tomorrow, or next month. Hunter-Reay crashed early in the first practice.

Race team says Gordon won't be available to drive Michigan

Hendrick confirmed that, if Earnhardt is unable to compete next weekend at Michingan, Jeff Gordon will not be in the No. 88 Chevy because of a prior commitment.
