Kobe’s Basketball Greatness Made Him a Hero to So Many Kids. What Happens When a Child’s Hero Dies?

When I watched the coverage of Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s death, amidst the primary grief I felt for Kobe’s wife, his surviving children, and the people who knew him and loved him, there were a series of images that brought even more tears to my eyes. It was the kids lined up outside the Staples Center. Some of them were dressed head-to-toe in Lakers gear. Virtually all were wearing Kobe’s jersey. I looked at them and saw my own son. I was transported back to a magical night on November 11, 2...

Rahm believed birdie on 18 meant Farmers playoff

Farmers Insurance Open: Full-field Scores | Full coverage But speaking to reporters after the round, Rahm revealed that he didn't look at another scoreboard the rest of the way. That meant he was unaware of Leishman's 72nd-hole birdie ahead of him that pushed the Aussie to 15 under and meant Rahm needed to make eagle - not birdie - to force a playoff. Rahm reached the par-5 green in two and barely missed a lengthy eagle putt before turning to caddie Adam Hayes expecting to prepare for ...

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — With a fearsome front four capable of pressuring quarterbacks without blitzes, a lockdown cornerback in Richard Sherman and the speed at linebacker and safety to limit big plays, the San Francisco 49ers had the league’s stingiest pass defense in a decade. Shutting down Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs’ passing game in the Super Bowl will be a far tougher challenge than anything the Niners have faced this season. “His mobility is unique.
