Matt Drudge gave a speech before the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in 1998. He was already deemed an internet leader in both news and aggregated news distribution. His Drudge Report challenged the ethos of the newspaper society, which was just the beginning of dynamic revolutionary change in the news world order. The Drudge Report made friends, added enemies, created new futures and helped forced everyone in the industry to change many times over in order just to stay relevant.
An absolutely loaded field heads to Royal Portrush Golf Club in County Antrim this weekend to play for one of the oldest trophies in sports. Amazingly, the Open Championship’s visit to Northern Ireland will be its first in 68 years. So, it should come as little surprise that Ulsterman, and 2014 winner, Rory McIlroy, enters as the favorite (8-1) to lift the Claret Jug for the second time. A field including fifteen former champions, and world #1 Brooks Koepka, will have to battle the challenging links course, some typically Irish weather, and themselves.
Welcome to our very fast growing open platform of news and general articles called Communal News. We are not sure what part of our business is growing faster: our readership; the website referrals; or new contributors. Either way we’re seeing fast enterprise-wide growth of our free services.
You might ask why we take four more steps than your usual contribution services.
A month and a half of ODIs, centuries, and washouts have come down to this. Defending champions Australia (6-5) take on hosts England (4-6) in Thursday morning’s second semifinal for the right to play in Sunday’s 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Final. The winner will face New Zealand, who withstood India— and the weather— in the first, two-day semifinal. England have never won the World Cup, but are once again favorites (11-8) to do so this year.
Could the Women’s World Cup experience the same inflation as its male equivalent? Two days away from the US – Netherlands final in Lyon on Sunday (5 pm), Gianni Infantino, the FIFA president, said he was in favor of extending the format of the competition from 24 to 32 teams as soon as possible.
Fans of U.S. soccer couldn’t ask for a more exciting day than Sunday. The USWNT (-500) will attempt to become the first team since Germany in 2007 to repeat as FIFA Women’s World Cup champions, when they take on the Netherlands (+400). Later that day, the USMNT (11-8) take on arch-rival Mexico (4-7), for their eighth CONCACAF Gold Cup title. If successful, it would be the first time the men’s and women’s teams won their respective tournaments since 1991.

As soon as the groups were drawn, experts feared the two teams most favored to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, France and the United States, would face each other in the quarterfinals. Sure enough, the defending champions (+125) will square off Friday against the fourth-ranked hosts in Paris. The second round of the knockout stage begins the day before, with England (+100) against Norway in La Havre. Saturday features a pair of games, Italy against the Netherlands (+350) in Valenciennes, then Germany (9-2) against Sweden in Rennes. The winners face off in the semifinals, beginning July 2.

- The writing and publishing world is rapidly changing and it takes a lot of work for writers and journalists to get noticed and properly paid on the web. Traditional corporate journalism is slowly dying and skilled writing positions are being eliminated all over, even at premium national news companies. This is making it harder for readers to find high-quality, accurate news reporting. Meanwhile, the news, social media and internet website messaging business becomes even more competitive and interactive each and every year. We believe writers need a professional outlet and not the Uber model.

South America’s 2019 Copa America, and the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup, of North and Central America and the Caribbean, continue with their group stages. Then, Africa’s best square off with the beginning of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

- Father’s Day weekend in the United States means the 119th annual awarding of golf’s national championship. An expanded field of 156 will gather at Pebble Beach for the U.S. Open— which, for the first time in history, will serve as golf’s third major. Masters’ champion Tiger Woods and PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka will both be vying for their second major of the year.
Kevin Durant suffered a right lower leg injury in Game 5 of the playoffs and could not make the first four games in the finals between Golden State and Toronto. He appeared in game five and played spectacularly until the middle of the second quarter. He made his first three 3 point attempts, he blocked a shot, until he took a hard fall over Toronto Raptors big man Serge Ibaka injuring his Achilles tendon. The Raptor fans started cheering. The players on Toronto especially Kyle Lowry took offense to his supporters from Toronto and objected to them cheering the injury of Kevin. They knew that the Lord in heaven did not like this reaction to the injury of a vital player on their opponent Golden State. Even though without Kevin Durant they had already defeated Golden State in three of the four first games of the finals, it is not good sportsmanship to applaud his injury. Also God took offense to the reactions of the crowd to teach them a lesson and Golden State defeated Toronto even without Kevin.
- The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off Friday, as hosts France (7-2) take on the Taegeuk Ladies from the Republic of Korea. The weekend will feature three games each, with other fancied teams Germany (6-1) facing China on Saturday, and England (7-1) against Scotland on Sunday.

If you enjoy championship-level sporting events, this is the weekend for you. On Thursday, the Cricket World Cup, Women’s College World Series, and NBA Finals all get underway. Then, on Saturday, the Stanley Cup Finals move to St. Louis, while Liverpool and Tottenham meet to decide the championship of European soccer.
The World Cup is the biggest competition in cricket and the 2019 edition is just days away. England are the favourites to win the tournament, but they need to be wary of the fact that on the three occasions they have reached the World Cup final, they have fallen short. If you think they could finally end their bad luck in the competition, you can place a bet on England here.
- On Tuesday night, the St. Louis Blues finished off the San Jose Sharks, 4 games to 2, to win the NHL’s Western Conference championship. They’ll meet the Boston Bruins, champions of the Eastern Conference, for the most famous trophy in sports, the Stanley Cup. Game 1 from Boston is Memorial Day on NBC.
- The sport of kings’ wildest two weeks in recent memory have seen horses disqualified, jockeys suspended, and the top three Derby finishers all missing on Saturday. However, the 144th running of the Preakness Stakes must go on. As such, Improbable, trained by Bob Baffert, enters Thursday as a 5-2 favorite.
- Perhaps the most thrilling title race in English football history comes to its exciting conclusion Sunday. Liverpool and Manchester City have matched each other, blow for blow, the entire season, with neither dropping a point since March 3. With 95 and 94 points, the runner-up will set the Premier League record for most points by a team that didn’t win the title.
- The biggest horse race of the year was turned upside down Wednesday, as morning line favorite Omaha Beach was scratched from this weekend’s 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. Trainer Richard Mandella said the horse has an entrapped epiglottis, “an upper-airway abnormality that can cause poor performance.” Omaha Beach had won three straight races, including the Arkansas Derby on April 13, and was named the favorite at 4-1 odds.
Rio football club Flamengo became 2019’s Campeão Carioca crowned team, winning against Vasco da Gama 2-0 on Sunday, April 21st. Flamengo won earlier against them 2-0, so the team could have lost 0-1 to Vasco and still been crowned. Yet, the team never slowed, bringing their overall total to 4-0 and dominantly grabbing their record 35th Campeonato Championship.
It was a solid comeback after last year when Vasco won the professional soccer championship final against Flamengo.
- This weekend’s biggest sporting event isn’t much of an athletic competition at all. Nonetheless, some 100,000 people will pour in to Nashville starting Thursday for the 84th annual NFL Draft. Millions more will be watching on three networks, in what has curiously become one of the biggest events on the sporting calendar.
- The first rounds of the NBA and NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continue this weekend, with the NHL entering the “if necessary” portion of proceedings. Clear your schedule until mid-June, grab a seat in front of a screen, or four, and enjoy the games each night.
- Opening weekend of majors’ season begins on Thursday, as the biggest names in golf make their annual pilgrimage to Augusta National, for the pageantry and tradition of the Masters. The weather could play a factor, with a chance of thunderstorms throughout the week.
My name is Gerald Farnell, and I suffer from a rare degenerative form of Osteoarthritis. I want to tell a little bit about my story, and how I found a simple solution to a problem that has plagued me since childhood.
When I was seven years old, my mother noticed that my left kneecap was swollen and red, and I was walking with a bit of a limp. I don’t remember a lot about it, other than that I thought it was an injury from playing football with my older brother John. John was a few years older than I, and always a bit rough on me, so getting injured was not really a new headline, but my mother thought we should have it checked out anyway.
- The men’s and women’s college basketball seasons come to their exciting conclusions this weekend. The Women’s Final Four takes place Friday in Tampa Bay, with the championship game Sunday night. The men meet in Minneapolis Saturday, with the final on Monday.
Nobody is exempt from problems. Falling is part of the path of life, but success lies in knowing how to get up. For that, many times we need someone to reach out to us when we really have reached the bottom. Through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, people, who have immersed in social conflicts of various kinds, can find a way to defend themselves from the problems and make their lives better.
- For fans of the national past time, the wait is finally over. All 30 teams are in action Thursday, for the start of the 2019 Major League Baseball season. March 28 will be MLB’s earliest Opening Day in history.
- The rest of the league will be playing catchup to the Seattle Mariners, alone in first place, after a two-game trip to Tokyo with the Oakland A’s. A tumultuous crowd of 47,000 fans turned out at the Tokyo Dome to say goodbye to Mariners’ legend, and Toyoyama native, Ichiro Suzuki.
- Nike shares fell Friday morning after the sneaker maker reported weaker-than-expected sales in North America during its latest quarter and warned revenue growth could slow down during the fourth and current quarter.
- Attorney Michael Avenatti was charged Monday with trying to extort $20 million from Nike as well as bank and wire fraud charges for embezzling a client’s money to pay off debts and use for his own expenses, according to authorities.
- College basketball’s last weekend before the NCAA Tournament offers fans and players something unique to the sport: a second lease on life. Some 300 teams will be fighting for 20 remaining automatic spots in this weekend’s conference championship tournaments.
- Going in to the last weekend of college basketball’s regular season, the American, ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Big East, Mountain West and SEC are all still up for grabs. In fact, only Washington of the PAC-12 has yet claimed a major conference crown.
- Twenty of the league’s 24 teams, including newly-christened FC Cincinnati, take the pitch Saturday, as Major League Soccer kicks off its 24th season. Two more matches will be played on Sunday.
- Ever-modest international superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be back, leading the LA Galaxy toward another playoff run. Supposing you need other storylines, like new players from abroad and rising domestic stars, the league will have plenty of those too.
Football or soccer is an important sport around the world. It’s has a wide range of spectators and it’s one of the most loved sports in the world. The availability of stadiums in almost all cities in the world attests to this fact. It might surprise you to learn how much it costs to construct some of these stadiums. In the light of this Zenox Sports bring you the 10 most expensive football or soccer stadiums in the world:
- Manchester City will attempt to retain their Carabao Cup title on Sunday, as they face Premier League rivals Chelsea at Wembley. Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri has, remarkably, never won a trophy, and may not get another chance, given his turbulent tenure in West London.
- The Big Bash League, Australia’s professional Twenty20 cricket league, calls stumps on its 2018-19 season this weekend. On Thursday, the Hobart Hurricanes host the Melbourne Stars, then the Sydney Sixers visit the Melbourne Renegades on Friday.
As a kid growing up in the 90’s I was blessed to witness some of the greatest things pop culture had to offer us. In my opinion, the 90’s generation got to experience some of the best music, style, tv shows, and movies. If you clicked on this article you most likely feel the same way but in the current generation of movies filled with superheroes (which I love), remakes, or spinoffs.
- SOCCER: Fresh off a 1-1 draw in the Copa del Rey against arch-rival Barcelona, Real Madrid set their sights on their neighbors, Atletico. Second place in the table is at stake— not to mention bragging rights— in the 164th league playing of the Madrid Derby.
- Meanwhile, England’s biggest weekend fixture features fourth-place Chelsea traveling to Manchester City, who are back at the top of the table, after defeating Everton on Wednesday. Man City have a game in hand on Liverpool, and are now favored to retain the Premier League trophy.
- In what many are already calling the worst Super Bowl ever, the New England Patriots won a record-tying sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy Sunday night, outlasting the Los Angeles Rams 13-3. The sixteen combined points are the lowest in Super Bowl history.
- Julian Edelman was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, the first wide receiver to claim the award in ten years. Though kept out of the end zone, the 5’10” former quarterback finished with a game-high ten catches for 141 yards, and was always in the right place at the right time.
- The biggest day of the American sporting calendar has finally arrived (almost). The AFC champion New England Patriots take on the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams Sunday in Super Bowl LIII.
- If it seems like the Rams came out of nowhere, you’re not far off. Three years ago, they were in St. Louis. Since then, the Rams engaged in a free agent frenzy, caught some lucky breaks in the draft, and hired a 30-year old head coach to quickly transform from losers into champions.
United States of America Cricket Umpires Association (USACUA) umpire Mudassar Safdar has topped the recently concluded West Indies Cricket Umpires (WICUA) Final Practical and Oral examinations by obtaining the highest score of 94.66 percent. Before achieving this feat, New Jersey’s Cricketer turned umpire Mudassar Safdar, also stood first in previous year’s Final written examinations of West Indies Cricket Umpires Association.
- Tennis’ first major tournament, the Australian Open, concludes this weekend. For two weeks, tennis fans (and North American night owls) have been following the drama, and the heat, in Melbourne. Of the two singles events, the women’s final will be on Saturday, and the men’s on Sunday.
- The women’s final is set. Eighth-seeded Petra Kvitová and fourth-seeded US Open champion Naomi Osaka will each play for their first Australian Open championship on Saturday.
- A pair of name brands appear in Friday’s semifinals, and experts are predicting a Novak Djokovic-Rafael Nadal final on Sunday. Numbers 1 and 2 on the men’s side will face Lucas Pouille and Stefanos Tsitsipas, respectively.
- Perhaps the biggest name not appearing in the last four is Serena Williams, who was eliminated by Plíšková. Williams dropped six games in a row, and four match points, in Wednesday’s quarterfinal. Her attempt to tie Margaret Court’s 24 major titles will have to wait until May.
- Has the dominance of the Big Four— Djokovic, Nadal, defending champion Roger Federer, and Andy Murray— held back the men’s singles game? No one under the age of 30 can claim a major title, and with the ATP Tour promoting a new crop of stars under 21, many are left wondering if the game has skipped a generation.
- The NFL’s final four square off Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl. First, the Los Angeles Rams face the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game. Then, the New England Patriots meet the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
- The Rams earned a return trip to the Superdome thanks to their strengthening ground game. In week 9, the Saints shut down Todd Gurley, en route to a 45-35 win. Last week, however, both Gurley and running-mate CJ Anderson rushed for over 100 yards, in their win over the Cowboys.
- Professional athletes don’t tend to be lacking for motivation, especially come playoff time. Saints coach Sean Payton may have provided some additional incentives by wheeling in $225,000 in cash and the team’s 2010 Lombardi Trophy, as part of a pre-playoffs speech. In dethroning last year’s champions last week, it’s safe to say the demo worked.
- Quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t born the last time his Kansas City Chiefs either played for the AFC title or won a home playoff game. His 5,097 passing yards (2nd in the league) and 50 touchdown passes (first) are a big reason why the Chiefs are a game away from their first Super Bowl in 50 years.
- The New England Patriots come in to Kansas City as rare 3-point underdogs. They’ll be greeted by an arctic blast, and more than 76,000 frigid fans hoping to make their jobs more difficult. A certain quadragenarian quarterback with five rings doesn’t want to hear about it.
- The Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs begin Saturday, as the Indianapolis Colts visit the Kansas City Chiefs. Then, the Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Rams. Sunday, it’s the Los Angeles Chargers against the New England Patriots, and finally, the Philadelphia Eagles meet the New Orleans Saints.
- Two star quarterbacks are getting all the attention, but the key matchup Saturday afternoon might be between the Chiefs defense and Colts’ offensive line. The Chiefs tied for the most sacks in the league, while the Colts’ o-line surrendered the fewest this season.
- Two of the league’s top running backs will square off at the LA Coliseum Saturday night. To pull an upset, Dallas’ plan seems simple. On offense, feed Ezekiel Elliott. On defense, find a way to stop the Rams’ Todd Gurley.
- Weather could be the deciding factor Saturday afternoon in Foxborough. No snow, but frigid temperatures are in store when the Chargers meet the Patriots. The Pats are 10-2 in home playoff games under 30 degrees in the Brady era, and the game time temperature is forecast at 29.
- After the Saints walloped the defending champions 48-7, the Eagles fell to 4-6 and all but out of the playoff picture. Since then, Philadelphia has won six of its last seven, including an upset squeaker in Chicago last week. Last year’s Super Bowl MVP, quarterback Nick Foles, is one reason Philly’s gone streaking.
- The NFL Playoffs begin on Saturday, with the Indianapolis Colts taking on the Houston Texans, followed by the Seattle Seahawks visiting the Dallas Cowboys. On Sunday, it’s the Los Angeles Chargers against the Baltimore Ravens, then the Chicago Bears host the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.
- The most intriguing of the eight x-factors this weekend might be seen in Chicago. Philadelphia will need a stellar performance from the offensive line, to contain the Bears’ superstar linebacker, Khalil Mack, and mount a title defense.
- Staying with Philadelphia, the most pressing injury concern this weekend will be the condition of last year’s Super Bowl MVP, quarterback Nick Foles. Elsewhere, Chargers’ running back Melvin Gordon was a full participant in practice, after tweaking his ankle last week in Denver.
- Your regular season may be over, but that doesn’t mean fantasy football has to be. With an increasing number of players opting for the postseason challenges, here are some tips and tricks to win under any format.
- Those interested in gaming of a different sort might want to take the over in the Chargers-Ravens game. All four games are predicted to be close, which would be a welcome change compared to the college football semifinals.
- The best of the best in college football take the field Saturday for the semifinals of the College Football Playoff. #2 Clemson takes on #3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl, followed by top-ranked Alabama against #4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.
- As champions of the defensively-challenged Big 12, the Sooners are a two-touchdown underdog, and face the longest odds of the four. Yet, their offense ranked first in yards gained per play, challenging the old adage that defense wins championships.
- Coach Brian Kelly has led the Fighting Irish to his second undefeated regular season in South Bend since 2012. In contrast to Oklahoma, Notre Dame’s hopes for their first national championship in 30 years rest with their defense.
- The Tigers will be without star defensive lineman, and projected first-round NFL Draft pick, Dexter Lawrence, who failed an NCAA drug test. In the meantime, Clemson will appeal, and investigate how a substance not approved for human consumption wound up in one of their best players.
- The most heavily-scrutinized ankle in college football belongs to Crimson Tide quarterback, and Heisman Trophy finalist, Tua Tagovailoa. Following surgery to a sprain suffered in the SEC Championhsip Game, Tagovailoa says the ankle is 80-85 percent. His status remains closely monitored.
- The busiest two weeks of the Premier League calendar (40 matches in all) begin on Friday, as leaders Liverpool face Wolverhampton. Twice in the last ten seasons, the Reds have been top at Christmas, only to fail to win the League.
- The NBA’s traditional Christmas showcase features five games and the league’s top stars. LeBron James’ annual tilt against the defending-champion Golden State Warriors involves his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and airs in prime time.
- While it’s a normal week for the NFL, Monday Night’s clash between arch rivals, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders, takes on added significance. Christmas Eve could be the last Raiders game in Oakland, as the team faces an uncertain future a year ahead of their move to Las Vegas.
- Bowl season continues over the long Christmas weekend, with ten games between Thursday and Wednesday. Boxing Day has two games between Power Five conference teams, and a third between #25 Boise State and Boston College.
- Christmas is the start of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and that means cricket. This year’s traditional Boxing Day Test pits Australia against India. Aaron Finch should be ready to go for the Aussies, but the same can not be said of the field conditions in Melbourne.
