Band O.A.R. can thank OAR for popularity spike

12:50 AM ET PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — From the day it was announced, the term was clunky and a mouthful. On the jerseys and jackets at the Winter Games, the label OLYMPIC ATHLETE FROM RUSSIA has looked more like a scarlet letter than a team name. So it makes sense, then, that the title for the 169 Russian athletes competing under the Olympic flag...

American Brita Sigourney earns bronze on final run of freestyle skiing halfpipe – Washington Post

BONGPYEONG, South Korea — Up and up she went, shooting up the halfpipe’s 25-foot wall, launching into the sky, spinning and twisting in a mid-air ballet that’s barely a blur to the naked eye.

DH or not, JD Martinez can be a fantasy star in Boston – ESPN

8:15 PM ET Every American League team hit more home runs than the Boston Red Sox last season, so adding a power bat was clearly an offseason priority. Long linked to free-agent outfielder J.D. Martinez, the Red Sox came to an agreement with the player Monday on a deal that makes a lot of sense for all. No player hit more than 24 home...

If Jets will pay Kirk Cousins ‘whatever it takes,’ where would that leave Vikings? – Minneapolis Star Tribune

If you believe the Vikings should at least be considering a run at free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins this offseason — and you will find me in that camp — some recent rumblings out of New York might make you rethink that position.

Martin Rogers  |  USA TODAY Sports GANGNEUNG, South Korea – How much is too much? Well, when you have a figure skater whose breast accidentally pops out of her costume during a routine, and you not only show it on television but zoom for a slow-motion replay of the mishap, that’d be too much.
