Everyone's hooked up on Super Bowl 50 last Sunday, so someone who wants to make a news headline should come up with something intriguing enough to steal some attention from America's biggest sporting event. That is what exactly Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did by announcing his retirement in pro football using nothing but an image of what appears to be hanging cleats.
While the couple of days that followed were marred in speculations and rumors, the team eventually confirmed the news that Lynch has in fact retired, prematurely ending his career in the NFL. Sounds surprising? Well, everyone seems to be feeling that way, too.
The image Lynch posted via Twitter was eventually followed by another cryptic message from his teammate, cornerback Richard Sherman, who tweeted, "Salute to my guy @MoneyLynch… It was an honor sharing the field with you." more >>

The Arizona Diamondbacks and 2015 Gold Glove winner A.J. Pollock agreed to a two-year contract to avoid arbitration. The said deal is reportedly worth $10.25 million, which was agreed upon last Monday by both parties.
The first round pick of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft hit 20 home runs last season and produced 76 RBIs, while accumulating a batting average of .315. He also led the Diamondbacks in hits with 192. In an interview with MLB.com, he said that he's excited to be in Arizona once again and that he wants to help the team win this upcoming season. Obviously, that's the kind of thing any player will say if given the kind of figures he got from the Diamondbacks.
The duo of Pollock and Pau Goldschmidt is a good reason for D'backs fans to be utterly excited about the new season. The two are a consensus top 10 when it comes to the best versatile players in the National League. more >>
One of the most charismatic WWE stars is abruptly ending his career in wrestling due to undisclosed medical reasons; but everyone knew that Daniel Bryan, who is known for his "Yes! Yes! Yes!" catchphrase, has been dealing with concussion issues since the last time he appeared in the ring in April of last year.
The 34-year-old is too young to end his WWE career, but the former champion is taking his health problem seriously, which obviously is the right thing to do. Aside from the concussion issues that surfaced last year, he also had to give up the heavyweight championship he won because he had to undergo surgery on his neck.
His popularity started when he began appearing on WWE's reality TV program titled "Total Divas." He then married another wrestling star Brie Bella two years ago and the real-life relationship between the two became a hit on the show. more >>

The Sacramento Kings are having a bad season and what really makes it look that way, even though they aren't as awful as the Philadelphia 76ers or the Los Angeles Lakers, is the fact that they entered the season full of hope and promise, that with a retooled lineup and a veteran coach who has one of the most wins in a season in league history, they finally can go deeper into the playoffs. But as things begin to unfold, there is pressure on making changes to the team before the trade deadline.
The front office is contemplating (pressured) at firing head coach George Karl because he couldn't come up with a defensive system that his players will succeed in playing for. At this very point of the season, the Kings are giving up way too many points to opposing teams, leading them to lose games down the stretch.
Now with all the rumors surrounding the team before the trade deadline, the one involving forward Rudy Gay is the most interesting. Should they let of go him, what are they planning to have in return? Here's a look at several scenarios for the Kings in the event of letting the 29-year-old go: more >>
