Nemesis no more: Yankees finally conquer Dallas Keuchel

11:55 PM ET NEW YORK — Of the opposing athletes who have inspired New Yorkers to feel an overwhelming sense of postseason doom, Michael Jordan remains the modern-day standard. Dallas Keuchel was never Michael Jordan, but this much was clear: When Keuchel threw the baseball, the New York Yankees often took swings that were reminiscent of Jordan’s minor league cuts with the 1994 Birmingham Barons. Let’s face it, if Keuchel shaved off his “Duck Dynasty” beard, he might’ve been confused with Hal Steinbrenner. The Houston Astros starter owned the Yankees, ...

Microsoft Admits Windows 10 Mobile Is Finally, Mercifully Dead

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Microsoft has finally acknowledged for good what the rest of us have known for some time. Windows 10 Mobile has bought the farm, kicked the bucket, left the building, and passed on. Said in that particular order, it makes it sound as if the OS is perhaps enjoying a well-deserved retirement after some years delivering rural mail to an ever-shrinking customer base.

6:07 PM ET FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — It looked like the same old Cam Newton who struggled during the first three games of the season when the Carolina Panthers quarterback threw deep to Damiere Byrd in the first quarter of Sunday’s 33-30 victory over New England. It was a bad decision: Newton threw a floater to Byrd, who was double-covered, and it was intercepted. And it came after the Panthers, who had only one touchdown in their last nine quarters coming into the game, settled for yet another field goal on ...

Has Lane Kiffin finally grown up?

12:00 AM ET THESE YEEZYS, MAN. You need, like, special dispensation from Kanye himself to get your hands on them, and a lot of people are mad at Lane Kiffin for snagging two pairs. The white sneakers conspicuously placed on the coffee table in the football offices at Florida Atlantic University are Yeezy Boost 350 v2s in “cream,” which can easily sell for close to $ 600, when you can find them at all. Kiffin’s shoe score has all the hallmarks of a Lane Kiffin yarn, but with a twist. ...

Why tax reform is so hard Steven Mnuchin is no longer a lone wolf at the Treasury Department. Senate lawmakers on Thursday finally approved five of President Trump’s nominees for key positions at the agency, overseeing tax policy, regulations and international finance.
