Julian Edelman, the best Patriots receiver over the last decade, retired on Monday, April 12. He has three Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player trophy.

The first Formula One (F1) race in the 2021 season took place in Bahrain on March 28. Even though the grandstands were empty, the new F1 cars’ engines revving reverberated through the racecourse and could be heard for miles. The numerous 2021 F1 regulation changes did little to change the race’s result: The seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton finished first, followed by Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas.
Monday, April 12: the NHL trade deadline. The day where contending teams acquire “rentals” from non-playoff teams on expiring contracts and a few players with terms left on their contracts are traded. Draft picks and prospects are traded, contending teams prepare for the stretch run and through a few head-scratching trades, general managers occasionally unknowingly submit an implicit letter of resignation. Let’s take a look at the market and craft a preview of how likely players are to be moved, where they might end up and what future assets might be exchanged.
Over the course of a normal five-month season, NFL players are expected to travel the country, leave their friends and family and play 16 grueling games in all sorts of inclement weather with only one week to rest.

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, I want to celebrate the many sportswomen who fearlessly break down barriers for women and girls around the world.

The Dallas Cowboys have signed franchise quarterback Dak Prescott to a four-year $160 million extension worth an average of $40 million per year.
NBA All-Star Weekend is one of the most exciting times to watch basketball. Usually, the events are thrilling. The Skills Challenge and the Three-Point Contest are both extremely competitive and unpredictable in their results. Entertaining and unforced, the All-Star Celebrity Game features famous personalities who surprise fans with their athletic abilities. The Rising Stars Challenge displays the future superstars of the league, and the NBA All-Star Game is the main event for obvious reasons.
It is March, and for many sports fans that means one thing: college basketball. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, often referred to as March Madness, is one of the most anticipated sports events of the year, and it has finally arrived. Due to COVID-19, the entire tournament will be held in Indiana with most games taking place in Indianapolis. Games begin March 18, and the tournament will run until April 5, when the championship game will be held.
With Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Porto already qualified for the quarterfinals, only four matches remain in the Champions League round of 16.
It is the job of the media to stir up controversy, make assumptions or pressure athletes for answers about their future plans, but at least in the case of Tiger Woods — they should stop.
The NBA is the only major sport to have a notable player as its logo. Jerry West is currently the man on every stadium, every jersey, every T-shirt and every press release made by the NBA. It is an amazingly unique position to be in as a former player, and it is also a symbol of how the NBA is incredibly player-centered.
The first leg of the 2021 Champions League was historic for many reasons. For the first time in history, seven out of the eight matches resulted in losses for the home teams. The only team that managed to win at home was Porto, who scored once at the beginning of each half before allowing Juventus to squeeze in a late goal in the 82nd minute.
Like most European sporting events in the past year, the 2021 Union of European Football Associations Champions League (UCL) round of 16 is taking place behind closed doors. Despite the empty stadiums, fans will surely be glued to their screens to watch the top players in the world go at it.
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald won his third NFL Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) Award this season. But right after he won, J.J. Watt, also a three-time DPOY, and many others took to social media to advocate for his younger brother, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award is the most prestigious individual honor given to an active player. While many try to predict each year’s winner, most of the players projected to be the MVP this season have fallen out of the conversation completely.
Growing up with two brothers and all male neighbors, I used my freakish knowledge of baseball stats to fit in as “one of the boys.” When asked at age 12, “If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be?” I answered New York Yankees announcer Michael Kaye.
While the box score won’t show it, Super Bowl LV was historic for several different reasons. It was the first time one of the teams in the big game actually hosted the event in their home stadium. The game featured Sarah Thomas, the first female to officiate a Super Bowl in National Football League (NFL) history. It was the first time a Super Bowl included a team with all Black coordinators on the sideline.
After originally deciding to cancel the 2021 National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game back in November of last year, the league, in agreement with the Players Association, changed its mind and decided that the game will take place on March 7 in Atlanta.
