LEEInks List: Memorable returns to Boston

With Deion Branch back with the Patriots for his second go-round, we looked for other instances in the past decade in which sports figures returned to jobs with Boston-area sports teams after a stint elsewhere (including retirement). From Ellis Burks to Glen Murray to Doug Flutie to Antoine Walker to Bill Belichick and others, the list features some successful returns and others that did not go quite as well. Check it out at the LEEInks blog.

Liverpool owners drop restraining order

The American owners of the Liverpool soccer team on Friday morning withdrew their Texas court order blocking the sale to the company that owns the Red Sox, but the fight might not be finished. Co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jr. are rumored to be considering assistance from American hedge fund Mill Financial to pay off the debt owed to Royal Bank of Scotland, which could keep the team from New England Sports Ventures.

 

John Henry, who heads the Red Sox parent company, tweeted early Friday morning: "We have a binding contract. Will fight Mill Hicks Gillett attempt to keep club today. Their last desperate attempt to entrench their regime."

 

A British High Court judge had warned that the Texas case needed to be dropped by 10 a.m. Friday or Hicks and Gillett would be in contempt of court.

Mashup: Sainz speaks about Jets issue

Mexican TV reporter Ines Sainz, whose offensive treatment at the hands of the Jets created major controversy last month, said she will not go into NFL locker rooms and instead interview players on the field or sideline. Sainz, who is scheduled to visit the Patriots soon, spoke Thursday at a news conference in Los Angeles. "I'm not going into the locker rooms anymore," she said. "It's not a good place right now for me. I don't want to be in there."

 

Sainz toook a month off after the Jets incident, "because I don't want to be the focus," she said. "I'm not looking for that kind of publicity. It affects my career and development in the States." As for criticism that her clothing was inappropriate, she said: "If I dressed properly or not, I have nine years of my career making interviews with top players all around the world and I can't believe that someone says my outfit is not proper. It's unfair...

Mayo on D&C: Pats 'refocused on the goal'

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of Patriots Friday on WEEI as the Pats prepare to host the Ravens on Sunday.

 

Mayo talked about the playoff game last season in which the Ravens ran roughshod over the Patriots from beginning to end in a 33-14 rout. "I just remember going out there and just having a terrible game from the first play to the last play," he said. "Those guys came out and put a pretty good beating on us. This year, I think the guys are refocused on the goal and taking it one game at a time. Hopefully, we can go out there and get it done."

 

Added Mayo: "Last year we came out and we kind of put our toe in the water to see if it was too hot or too cold. Those guys dove in head-first. That's what we have to do this year. We have to dive in head-first, and from the first play to the last play, go out there and...
