Manny Pacquiao has a deadline for rival boxer Floyd Mayweather to sign a contract to step into the ring with him.
Pacquiao, the 36-year-old Christian fighter and politician, took to Twitter to taunt Mayweather, the 37-year-old undefeated fighter, who many have been trying to get him to battle in the ring for years.
"If you really care about the fans, you will fight. If you care about yourself... you won't fight. #MannySmile. I can easily beat @FloydMayweather, I believe that," Pacquiao tweeted. "Everyone had me as a big underdog to @OscarDeLaHoya too. If @FloydMayweather fights me boxing will get an even bigger upset victory." more >>
Vince Wilfork of the New England Patriots lends a helping hand after being part of a historic victory that led his team to the Super Bowl. While driving home he noticed a Jeep Wrangler rolled onto the side of the road near the stadium.
After seeing this car flipped, Vince did what anyone else would have done. He pulled over and went over the car to help get a woman out.
"Through football and the course of life, I've learned to try to stay poised in certain situations and I'm pretty sure she was kind of scared," Wilfork said Monday in the team's locker room. This was a situation where this man was scared of the situation, but knew he had to help. The police credited him with saving 38-year-old Mary Ellen Brooks and bringing her to safety. more >>

Russell Wilson, the celebrated 26-year-old Seattle Seahawks quarterback, all but declared his team's stunning and historic 28-22 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, a miracle.
For all but two of the 60 minutes of regular play, the Seahawks looked like they were about to be sent packing by the Packers. Wilson was sacked four times and threw four interceptions. His team also trailed 16-0 in the third quarter until an incredible fake from punter Jon Ryan who converted what was supposed to be a field goal into a touchdown and made the score 16-7.
With just over two minutes left in regular play, the score line had jumped to 19-7 in favor of the Packers. Things did not look good for the Seahawks until Wilson in a stunning display of grit rushed to a 1-yard touchdown, doubling his team's score with still more than two minutes to spare in the game. more >>
