'Pacman' Jones involved in car accident, explodes in verbal tirade

  'Pacman' Jones involved in car accident, explodes in verbal tirade Those anger management classes are apparently working for Adam Jones, at least minimally. Jones says another car “ran straight into me,” damaging his very expensive ride. Thankfully, Jones did not lay his hands on the poor sap who ran into him. But he did lay into him verbally.

Curt Schilling on Thursday doubled-down on a Twitter rant from Wednesday night when he questioned whether Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones really had racial slurs directed at him during Monday’s game at Fenway Park. Derek Jeter pens heartfelt essay of gratitude to New York.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones continues to speak out about the incident earlier this month at Fenway Park.© Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Orioles center fielder Adam Jones continues to speak out about the incident earlier this month at Fenway Park. Adam Jones has penned a thoughtful and compelling essay entitled “Hate” for The Players’ Tribune in which he addresses the incident on May 1 at Fenway Park when he was subjected to racial slurs and had a bag of peanuts thrown at him.

Instead of focusing solely on the troubling incident from his perspective, the Baltimore Orioles outfielder instead addresses how disappointing it is to realize his three-year-old son is learning about issues like racism and hate at such a young age. Jones, writing of the incident, indicates his son “doesn’t understand why, but he knows what happened.”

Cowboys won't honor Tony Romo yet because he hasn't retired, Jerry Jones says

  Cowboys won't honor Tony Romo yet because he hasn't retired, Jerry Jones says Go ahead and count Jerry Jones among those who don't believe Tony Romo is finished playing football. Asked at a golf outing Wednesday about the Cowboys' plans to recognize Romo's career, as they did last month with DeMarcus Ware, the owner had a succinct response.

Adam Jones got a standing ovation at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. Orioles outfielder Adam Jones says he heard fans call him the N-word and had peanuts thrown in his direction in the dugout during Monday nights game at Fenway Park.

Adam Jones has reacted to Curt Schilling essentially saying he lied about an incident that occurred earlier this month during a game at Fenway Park.

Jones does address the Fenway incident from a personal standpoint, disputing and discarding the typical reactions and justifications to those who take a contrarian view of what occurred. Among those in the camp of detractors and naysayers is Curt Schilling, who on several occasions has embarrassingly accused Jones of lying about the incident (more on this here and here).

Here's part of Jones' essay:

Well, it’s 2017, and some people are still just stupid. I’ve heard plenty of stuff on a baseball field over the years. You expect trash talk from fans. Sometimes you even enjoy it.

But to be out there playing the game you love, and to hear somebody call you the n-word?

To have peanuts thrown at you, like you’re not even a human being?

It’s disgusting.

Forget about, “Well in hip-hop, they say….”

Forget about, “Well the guy was just drunk.”

Forget about, “Well I’ve never heard that stuff at Fenway before.”

This is not a sports debate show. This is my real life. It happened.

And it’s just point-blank disgusting.

How the Sens can exploit a depleted Pens roster in Game 3

  How the Sens can exploit a depleted Pens roster in Game 3 Even at one win apiece, the Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins are set to do battle in Game 3 on Wednesday night at Canadian Tire Centre. While the Penguins took Game 2 in dramatic fashion, they enter Canada's capital missing Justin Schultz and Bryan Rust from the starting lineup, while Patric Hornqvist will miss his second consecutive game. With that in mind, the Senators have a chance to capitalize on a thin Penguins roster, and here are a few ways they can do so:Get back on the forecheckThe loss of Schultz could be a major problem for a Penguins D corps that's already missing Kris Letang and likely Trevor Daley, who will be a game-time decisio

Jones closes out the essay by once again addressing how he’ll have to explain racial intolerance and bigotry to his son, who, as a teenager ”if he Googles his dad, this incident will probably come up. He’ll read a lot of confusing things.”

Jones, via his agent, previously made it clear he will never “let up” in his quest to confront the issues of racism in baseball. This essay again proves that commitment quite convincingly.

Why the Preds-Pens Stanley Cup Final will be stellar .
The NHL is a copycat league, and you can count on 28 front offices directing their attention to the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins over the course of the next few weeks, attempting to replicate the clubs' models of success. In that sense, it's ironic that despite the Preds and Pens - at this point, at least - having rosters built with completely different blueprints, the first team to four wins will define what it takes to build a winner in today's league.
