Team USA has a lineup full of MVPs and All-Stars, and sent out the reigning NL Cy Young winner for its opening game of the World Baseball Classic.
Let’s just say some members of the Spanish Olympic basketball team took their 107-100 loss to the United States in the gold medal game at the London Olympics pretty hard.
Three athletes with ties to the Chicago-area qualified for the medal rounds of their respective sports on Saturday at the 2012 Olympics in London.
The U.S. Olympic athletes are made in America, but their uniforms are made in China. The revelation sparked controversy Thursday that brought angry reaction from the highest levels of government in the U.S.
Chris Bosh is still hurting, and his Olympic plans are being pushed aside so he can heal.
I never thought I would say this, but maybe Mr. Wade and Mr. Allen should listen to LeBron James to see what it means to be a member of Team USA.
The United States beat Italy for the first time in 11 games over 78 years, a 1-0 victory in an exhibition Wednesday night on Clint Dempsey’s goal in the 55th minute.
Derrick Rose’s 2010 season is going better than anyone realistically expected. Well maybe anyone but Rose himself who, on media day, wondered why he couldn’t win the MVP award this season.
As expected, the Chicago Blackhawks have recalled defenseman Nick Leddy from the Rockford IceHogs.
In last year’s Olympic games, the Chicago Blackhawks were on full display. While the next Olympics aren’t for some time, the team will remain well represented in International play.
The Eagles and the Bears aren’t the only big football game in town this weekend. The U.S. Women’s soccer team is taking on Italy Saturday at Toyota Park with a spot in next year’s World Cup at stake.
