A fan who ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Monday night apparently had a crush on movie star Cameron Diaz and wished harm upon Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who has dated Diaz. According to a New York Post story, Grim LeRogue, who legally changed his name from Joe Rogan, was carrying five pictures, including one of A-Rod with an X on his face and a gun pointed at his head. Written on the photo was this threat: "You have to go bud, you've ruined too many of our white queens." LeRogue, who was quickly detained but struggled aggressively, also had a picture of Diaz with a message saying: "We will be together soon."
The 33-year-old, who has a record of prior arrests for assault and burglary, also had a photo of Osama bin Laden with a note saying: "I will serve you." Charged with assault and interfering witha sporting event, LeRogue was was held...
A controversial second-inning homer from Robinson Cano proved meaningless as the Rangers slugged their way to a 10-3 victory over the Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Championship series. They now hold a 3-1 series advantage.
A 20-year-old fan appeared to reach over and touch Cano's solo-shot in a scene reminiscent of the 1996 ALCS Jeffrey Maier incident. Cano's dinger put New York up, 1-0, and the Yankees held a 3-2 lead until a three-run homer from Bengie Molina off A.J. Burnett made it 5-3 in favor of the Rangers. Texas continued to add to what became eight unanswered runs, including two homers from Josh Hamilton.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left the game in the fifth inning due to a strained hamstring. After a preliminary test revealed it to be strained, the team scheduled an MRI for their slugger. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after the game that "barring some miracle,"...
Zdeno Chara logged a game-high 29:05 of ice time and Tim Thomas continued his impressive stretch as the Bruins picked up their third straight win on Tuesday night, defeating the Capitals, 3-1, in Washington, D.C.
David Krejci, Milan Lucic, and Matt Hunwick contributed the goals for the Bruins, the first two of which came in the first period, with Hunwick’s coming at 2:08 of the third. Both Krecji and Hunwick’s tallies were their first of the season, and Lucic picked up his third goal in the last three games.
Thomas was stellar once again, stopping 35 of 36 shots he faced and picking up his third straight win. He has now allowed just two goals in his three games. Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin was a minus-two on the night, while goaltender Michal Neuvirth left the game after the Bruins' first two goals due to the flu.
The Celtics and Miami Heat are getting ready to open the season next Tuesday night at TD Garden in one of the most anticipated regular season games in NBA history. And Ray Allen, for one, believes the general public is much more excited to see the new-look Miami team with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh than the defending Eastern Conference champion Celtics.
"I believe so," Allen said following the Celtics' Green-White scrimmage at TD Garden on Tuesday night. "I believe so because there's never been an opening game that has been more heavily anticipated. I do believe that people are definitely excited to see them more than they're excited about about seeing us. Truly they know, as a team, what we represented. The two teams are Eastern Conference powerhouses. It's going to be a game."
Allen played Tuesday for the Green squad, which captured a 38-31 victory in an enhanced practice before...
Celtics coach Doc Rivers underwent a biopsy Sunday morning after his doctor found a spot on his throat three weeks ago. The good news for the coach is that the results came back clean. "They found cancerous lesions," Rivers said after the team conducted an open practice for season ticket holders at TD Garden. "They had to make sure there was nothing there, and there was nothing, so I’m good. I’m going to be around for a while it looks like."
Rivers said that he has his throat checked every year after prompting from former Celtics coach Jim O'Brien. "I think most coaches should because we yell, use our throat a lot," Rivers said. "That makes you more susceptible to it. I’m glad I did it now."
