McGregor backers: Mayweather fight is no sideshow


That's what a fighter was, but now I have no idea what the kids of today would define a fighter as. Connor will have a hard time beating Mayweather because he's too far ahead experience-wise.

Penguins strike late to repeat as Stanley Cup champs


Two championships in succession have put Pittsburgh's tally during the Crosby-Malkin era at three - one more than the team earned in the Lemieux-Jagr era. This team was different, different from a year ago even, and not necessarily in a talent-laden way.
