By Steve Douglas Published 4:05 pm PST, Tuesday, February 5, 2019 ARE, Sweden — As Mikaela Shiffrin hopped atop the podium to celebrate another gold medal, Lindsey Vonn was nearby on the sidelines of the finish area, stretching her ailing knees and explaining just how she wound up entangled in a safety net halfway down the course. Definitive proof, not that it was really needed, of a passing of the baton in American — and world — ski racing. With a daring and often wild run, Shiffrin won the super-G by 0.02 of a second at the skiing world championships Tuesday for her first medal in a speed event at a major championship. She has won a gold medal at four straight worlds. Coming in a season when she has been virtually unbeatable in the World Cup, she is unmistakably the queen of ski racing.

And true, when someone becomes the greatest NFL quarterback of all time — and if Brady leads the New England Patriots to a sixth Super Bowl win tonight, who can argue? — you figure you’d spot it by college, right? LeBron James, they spotted in high school. Tiger Woods, they spotted when he was 2. But Tom Brady? Don’t ask us. Because sportswriters in Michigan have, for years, combed their old files and reviewed their VHS tapes trying to figure how Wolverine Tom became Patriot Tom. Everyone wants to know the roots of his greatness. And we, the locals, are supposed to know where they are planted. Eleven years ago, during Super Bowl week in Scottsdale, Arizona, I stood up at a press conference to ask Brady a question. There had to be a few hundred people in … [Read more...] about Mitch Albom: Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T. we never saw coming
Michael Balsamo Associated Press Published 7:38 PM EST Jan 28, 2019 Washington – Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign is “close to being completed,” the acting attorney general said Monday. Speaking at an unrelated news conference in Washington, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said he had been “fully briefed” on the special counsel’s investigation. He began overseeing the probe after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at President Donald Trump’s request in November. “The investigation is, I think, close to being completed, and I hope that we can get the report from Director Mueller as soon as possible,” Whitaker said. He said he was looking forward to Mueller delivering his report. The investigation is looking at Russian interference in the 2016 election and ties to Trump’s campaign. Whitaker has drawn criticism over … [Read more...] about Acting A.G.: Mueller’s probe ‘close to being completed’
