The National Football League usually has its annual draft in New York City.

But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

Detroit Red Wings chasing Blue Jackets for eighth spot in Western Conference; playoff run in jeopardy

Back in February when the Blue Jackets were 5-12-5, it looked like another season that was going to end in April.

The Detroit Red Wings at the time were in a playoff position (the top eight spots) and headed to the playoffs.

Well, this 48-game season has been one who has benefitted teams like the Blue Jackets and New York Islanders and has hurt Detroit and Nashville.

The Blue Jackets for the first time in their history won the season series from the Red Wings which is unbelievable.

As of today, April 22, The Blue Jackets have 51 points, tied for 7th place with Minnesota and the Red Wings are 9th with 48 points, tied with Dallas. The Blue Jackets have two games left while Detroit has four left.

The Red Wings lost in a shootout at Vancouver on Saturday and could not tie the Columbus.

Detroit has a streak of 21 straight seasons of making the NHL playoffs, which ties them for the fifth-longest such streak in league history.

The Red Wings try to play catch-up tonight as they host Phoenix.

Columbus Blue Jackets off-season moves paying off early

The Columbus Blue Jackets made some significant changes to the overall look of the club during the 2012 offseason.

John Davidson left the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues to become the new President of Hockey Operations. Todd Richards had the “interim” tag dropped and is now the head coach.

Richards has added two new members to his coaching staff, Associate Coach Craig Hartsburg and Assistant Coach Keith Acton.

The franchise has added 5 new players in forwards Artem Ansimov, Brandon Dubinsky and Nick Foligno; defenseman Adrian Aucoin and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.

The team is off to a 1-0-1 start with 3 points against Division rivals Nashville and Detroit using a fast-paced offense with in-your-face gritty defense.

 

Stallings, sore ribs and all, shoots 66 to lead Memorial’s first round action

Most PGA Tour fans may not know much about Scott Stallings, if anything at all.

The 27-year-old Stallings is a graduate of Tennessee Tech University of Cookeville, Tennessee, which is in the Nashville area. He turned pro in 2007 and has one win on the PGA Tour, the Greenbrier Classic in July of 2011. That is the extent of his pro golf career.

The golf world knows him now, because he the first round leader of the 2012 Memorial Tournament, shooting a 6-under-par 66.

Stallings showed his mettle with a birdie on the most-difficult hole on the course, the 18th, with a 2-foot putt. He leads by one-stroke over Spencer Levin and Erik Compton.

It’s a good human interest story that Stallings is able to lead any tournament or even play golf in his position due to the injury he has.

In late January of this year, he suffered torn cartilage in five ribs and it took the injury awhile to be diagnosed properly.

After taking off a month to rest his injury, Stallings came back and has had mixed results. His high point was finishing 27th in the Masters tournament and he hasn’t made a cut since then.

Ribs injuries has no real therapy or surgery. It has to heal on its own.

For golfers, the injury is very nagging and troublesome because of the torque put on the body when they have to drive the ball for distance.
