BOULDER, Colo. – The most powerful, hard-charging runner in Colorado Buffaloes history has never officially gained a yard. She’s a 1,200-pound beast who gallops around the field guided by five harness-wielding handlers and hits a speed of nearly 25 mph before disappearing into her trailer in the end zone. The live buffalo named Ralphie has long been a star attraction in leading the team out for a game and one of college football’s most distinguished mascots. The Buffaloes have followed the lead of five versions of Ralphie spanning more than 300 contests, including 24 bowl games, with Saturday marking the 50th anniversary of the iconic tradition.

ALAMEDA, Calif. – Players at ages once considered to be their prime playing years now struggle to find jobs as the NFL has undergone a dramatic youth movement in the past decade as teams grow more inclined to go with cheaper more inexperienced players ahead of seasoned veterans. The change is a reflection of the collective bargaining agreement signed before the 2011 season that capped rookie salaries and limited the chances for young players to renegotiate deals they had outperformed.

CAR–F1-DUEL IN MEXICO
MEXICO CITY – The fiercest rivalry in Formula One hasn’t been at the front of the grid this season, but in the cockpits of the pink Force India cars in the middle of the pack. Mexico’s Sergio Perez and France’s Esteban Ocan have waged a season-long battle each accusing the other of dangerous moves on the track and grinding it out in wheel-to-wheel racing. In front of his home fans, Perez may be the most popular driver at the Mexican Grand Prix with his teammate cast as its biggest villain. By Jim Vertuno.

Ric Flair was on his deathbed. One of wrestling’s greatest champions, a lifetime of heavy drinking caused multiple organ failures that sent him into a coma and gave The Nature Boy about a 20 percent survival rate. But even in real life, Flair refused to go down for the three count Justin Bethel Super Bowl LI Jersey , and somehow survived the health scare. Flair, whose ”Wooooooo!” call during promos and matches became one of the most imitated catchphrases in sports, thought he would die. Alive, and with a new lease on life, Flair tells The Associated Press he’s done drinking and vows to clean up his act with whatever time he has left. By Dan Gelston.

SPOKANE, Wash. – Both inside and outside ”The Kennel,” Gonzaga is undergoing an upgrade. New locker room. New practice facility. New fancy center-hung scoreboard in the arena. It’s all part of the infrastructure the Bulldogs believe they need to have in place to make sure their breakthrough trip to the title game a year ago isn’t a one-time event. Proving Gonzaga is truly a powerhouse means more than just one trip to the Final Four. By Tim Booth. UPCOMING: 800 words, photos, video by 3 a.m. Monday.
NEW YORK – Pastor Carl Lentz says he tells celebrities and star athletes truths they probably never hear from their entourage or agents. Whether it’s NBA stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant or pop star Justin Bieber Authentic Quenton Nelson Jersey , Lentz says his guidance is from an ”objective, loving viewpoint.” Some fans have blamed Lentz for encouraging players – like Irving – to seek new teams. Others have credited him for helping Bieber mature. Lentz, a former college basketball player, shies away from the ”pastor to the stars” label, saying he gives guidance to all, from the single mom fighting cancer who volunteers at his church to multi-millionaires.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – The idea, harkening back to the playgrounds of his youth Authentic Jordan Whitehead Jersey , came to Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph’s mind right before he caught a touchdown pass in a game earlier this month. Just as instructed in the huddle seconds earlier, Rudolph’s teammates sat down in a circle before he ran around and patted them on the helmet in a brief but humorous rendition of Duck, Duck, Goose. A few weeks later, a couple of Pittsburgh Steelers played Hide and Seek in the end zone. The trend is a product of the NFL’s relaxed rules on celebrations. So much for the No Fun League.
