A Brazilian surfer now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave ever surfed. Despite the risks of literally exploding, then drowning, then exploding again, there are still people who will risk life and limb to surf big-ass waves, and I have no choice but to respect it.

    The 49ers on Thursday selected Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey with the ninth overall pick, the first time in the last six years they have used their top pick on an offensive player. In addition to his role as Garoppolo's's primary blindside protector, he'll also provide the 49er offensive line with a boost in the running game. He combined with Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson to form one of the most dominant offensive lines in the country.

    Saina provided a determined challenge but could not get past World No. 2 and defending champion Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei, losing 25-27, 19-21 in an edge-of-the seat thriller. She had lost to her nemesis at the Indonesia Open final and All England Championship this year but unlike those defeats, it turned out to be a thrilling contest as Saina gave ample display of her new-found confidence and fitness.

    O'Sullivan's career has spanned over 25 years and with it has come various controversies and threats of retirement. But he failed to produce his best against both Carter and first-round opponent Stephen Maguire.

    Reed was a two-time First Team All-Big 12 pick as a defensive back. "The wide receivers that they're targeting, mainly I think DJ Moore is probably the guy that they're targeting from Maryland over any of the other wide receivers". 50 pick, and thus, becomes the first Longhorns offensive lineman drafted since Tony Hills in 2008. But Dallas goes for defense for the second-straight year.

    The Angels have yet to announce a starter for Wednesday or Thursday, so Ohtani could fill either of those slots if he's ready. "But ultimately the decision's not up to me; it's up to the medical staff, the front office, and the coaches". There's no timetable now set for the 23-year-old pitcher/slugger to return to the field, though he's expected to undergo further evaluation on Saturday.

    Sport

    A big negative for United was the sight of Romelu Lukaku limping off early in the second half with what appeared a foot injury after being challenged by Arsenal debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos . As the game approached its climax, Fellaini had the best chance of the second-half to put his side in front, but his tall frame was not enough to poach the header from a wonderful Ashley Young cross.
  • Surprise: Evgeni Malkin Out for Game 2

    Sport

    Malkin's absence will allow Carter Rowney to work as the fourth-line center, but it severely inhibits the Penguins' center depth. Whether you use deductive reasoning or you can see the white, whatever it may be, that's how we saw it. The Penguins' streak of road playoff victories ended at six. "We'll try to put him in a position where he can play to his strengths, be successful as an individual and help our team win".

    The pattern continued after the break, with Atletico bending but not breaking and even getting the occasional chance with deep balls behind the high-pressing Arsenal defenders. "We know we have to go there and win the game or at least score a goal to qualify, so on that front we know exactly what we have to do". Simeone watched much of the game from the directors' box after he fumed on the touchline in the early stages.

    De Gea, 27, headed out for lunch with his fiancée Edurne as well as his mentor Emilio Alvarez and another friend as they hit an Italian restaurant in Cheshire on Friday. The lads were great, they understand the game. "I am absolutely gutted". Because of United's full backs who are not unsafe in the final third of the pitch, United lack a different dimension to the game.

    Southampton move above Stoke City to 18th, one point below Swansea City and three points off Huddersfield Town who, on paper, have the most hard three games remaining of the campaign.
