Need to catch up with whats happening in the world of sports and pop culture? Dont worry, I got you.1. So much Olympic greatness to discuss, but only 20 questions. Where do I begin?2. Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian ever, seems like a gd place to start. After his final event, he announced his retirement. Are you buying that he wont return in 2020?3. Speaking of 2020, theres no doubt Katie Ledecky will compete again in four years -- she returned home this year with five medals (four gold and one silver). Does the 19-year-old have a chance to threaten Phelps Olympic medal count?(2, or is his legacy untouchable? As great as Phelps is, Ive never seen anyone dominate the pl like Ledecky. Shes her only competition!4. Nothing could overshadow Phelps Rio run, but how awesome is swimmer Joseph Schlings story?5.?The moment that brought me the most joy was when Simone Manuel won gold in the 100-meter freestyle. With her historic victory, she became?the first African-American woman swimmer to win an individual gold medal at the Olympics. But do you know how profoundly significant Manuels win is for American history, t??6. I love everything the Final Five represent. Before they arrived in Rio, they were dubbed?the greatest gymnastics team of all time?and finished the team competition with a nearly 10-point margin. Safe to say experts were correct in their assertion? I think so.7. And wow, Simone Biles. Three golds down, two more to go. Any doubt shell win the beam and flr? Nah.8. Call me old-fashioned, but I miss the Perfect 10 scoring in gymnastics. Dont you agree that 15.839 just doesnt have the same cl factor? Bring back the Perfect 10!9.?Usain Bolts Jamaican rts dont stop the world from rting for him like hes our own, and can you blame us? When you become the only person?to win a third consecutive Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter, I think youve earned the right to become a citizen of the world.10.?If Ledecky owns the water, and Bolt owns land, do you know who owns the sand? Kerri Walsh-Jennings. The 38-year-old beach volleyball player is 26-0 at the Olympic Games and two wins away from her fourth Olympic gold. #Legend11.?Is anyone more infallible on hardwd than Team USAs womens basketball? Answer: absolutely no one.12.?But what is happening with Team USA mens basketball? Theyve had some nail-biters recently, and theyre not lking so unbeatable. Its clear the world has closed the gap, but Team USA is still the runaway favorite. Hopefully they dont succumb to an upset.13.?Speaking of upsets, days later Im still trying to reconcile the U.S. womens soccer teams loss to Sweden. Have you come to grips with this stunning loss, yet?14.?And my gdness, Hope Solo. What were you thinking? Not cl.15.?But you know what I still cant get over? What South Africas Wayde van Niekerk accomplished yesterday, breaking Michael Johnsons 17-year-old record for the 400-meter. It was mind blowing, but I was more impressed by how it all happened. A Lane 8 runner breezed past the rest of the field in unprecedented fashion. Unbelievable.16.?Did you hear about the Olympian who left Rio with silver and a diamond? Its a pretty sweet love story.17.?Can I please ask: what satisfaction is gained by criticizing Gabby Douglas? I truly dont understand the incessant bullying at her expense. We should be lifting her up, not tearing her down.18.?In non-Olympic news, Alex Rodriguezs days in pinstripes are over. Its safe to say he didnt have the most graceful exit from the game. But is he to blame for how the Yankees treated him?19.?Which 2016 retiree had the best all-around career: Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Peyton Manning, Michael Phelps or Alex Rodriquez? Thats a debate for the ages.20. After re-signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James is now the highest-paid player in the NBA.

Adidas Stan Smith Clearance .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Buffalo tk advantage of sloppy, Tom Brady-less New England to hand the Patriots their first home shutout at Gillette Stadium, winning 16-0 Sunday.It was the first loss of the season for New England (3-1), which was playing its final game before Brady returns from his four-game Deflategate suspension. The Patriots, who moved into Gillette Stadium in 2002, were last blanked at home 6-0 by the New York Jets in 1993 at Foxboro Stadium.Tyrod Taylor connected with LeSean McCoy for a 7-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, Dan Carpenter added three field goals for Buffalo (2-2).It was Buffalos second win in its last 16 visits to Foxborough. Including his tenure with the New York Jets, it gave Bills coach Rex Ryan his first regular-season road victory over Bill Belichick in eight tries. The last Bills shutout win away From Orchard Park was 23-0 over Washington in a Buffalo home game at Toronto on Oct. 30, 2011.After struggling to maintain drives and finding a run-pass balance, Taylor was spot-on Sunday. He finished 27 for 39 for 246 yards, and directed a unit that was 7 for 15 on third downs. The Bills had been 10 of 36 combined in the first three games.Buffalos defense also carried over its dominant effort from its 33-18 win over Arizona, sacking rkie Jacoby Brissett three times.Brissett made his second consecutive start in place of Jimmy Garoppolo (sore right shoulder). But Brissett, playing a week after injuring his right thumb, struggled to find the command he had in leading the Patriots to a 27-0 win over the Texans. New England finished 1 for 12 on third downs and managed just 277 total yards. The Patriots drove into Buffalo territory only four times, with three of those drives ending in a lost fumble by Brissett, a missed field goal, and a turnover on downs.Nothing was gd enough, Belichick said. At any position, at any phase of the game. It just wasnt gd enough.After managing to reach the red zone with four drives in their first three games, the Bills did it on their first two series Sunday.Their first possession, a 12-play, 65-yard drive, ended in Taylors touchdown strike to McCoy. The second stretched 52 yards over 10 plays and was capped by the first of two first-half field goals by Dan Carpenter.QUOTABLE:Ryan on getting a regular-season win in Foxborough: God, it feels gd to finally win here. ...Its satisfying. But lets face it: They had a player out.Patriots WR Julian Edelman on that missing player: Anytime one of your best players isnt there, theres something missing.dddddddddddd. We handled a lot of it well. Today we just didnt. The Bills outplayed us, so thats that.PREGAME SCUFFLE: Several punches were thrown when a shoving match erupted near the sideline about an hour before kickoff. The altercation appeared to begin when Brissett was jogging along the field and was shoved by Bills safety Robert Blanton. Brissett didnt stop, and New England rkie receiver Malcolm Mitchell retaliated by shoving Blanton. Blanton responded by punching Mitchell in the chest and head-butting him, which led to several other players and assistant coaches getting involved. Later, Bills safety Aaron Williams shoved a Patriots assistant coach attempting to separate the players. As the scuffles began to dissipate, Buffalo cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman landed a punch on Blantons facemask.FIRST DOWN EFFICIENCY: The Bills matched a season high for first downs with 16 in the first half alone. Buffalo had 16 in each of its past two games after opening the season with 11 in a 13-7 loss at Baltimore. Taylor opened by hitting 14 of his first 17 attempts for 138 yards and a touchdown before closing the half 17 of 22 for 165 yards. That topped the 119 yards passing he had in last weeks 33-18 win over Arizona.SLOW GOING: The Patriots offense was anemic in the opening quarter, failing to get a first down while managing 20 total yards. It was the first time the Patriots went without a first-quarter first down since Week 8 of 2011 against Pittsburgh. Bills safety Aaron Williams said the win was still satisfying even with Brady out.Were probably going to hear the excuses that (Brissett) was a third-string quarterback. Garoppolo was out and Tom didnt (play) ... Its a game man. They get paid just like we do. They got to prepare just like we do.FIRST CATCH: TE Rob Gronkowski, who played sparingly in his season debut last week, caught his first pass of the season, an 11-yard reception in the fourth quarter.INJURIES: Patriots DT Vincent Valentine left in the third quarter with a back injury. Bills CB Corey White was escorted to the locker rm in the fourth quarter and placed in the concussion protocol after being shaken up while covering punt.---AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
