 Enormous 1,300 lb haul of ancient Roman coins unearthed in Spain

 Hiker finds rare gold coin in Israel

"What is incredible is a discovery of this size -- there are 19 amphoras, all complete, and I can assure you that they can't be moved by one person alone, because they weigh so much due to the coins inside," said Ana Navarro, head of the Archaeology Museum in Seville.
"Ten of (the amphoras) were broken while they were digging up the trench, and the others, as you can see, we have here, whole and full of this set of coins," she continued.
 
 
The initial hypothesis is that the coins were to be used to pay taxes to the Roman empire, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais.

 

 

 

  Seahawks select Germain Ifedi No. 31

 NFL draft pick celebrates selection by randomly jumping around with his agent

 Players only get drafted into the NFL once. So while they spend years training physically for the moment, the celebrations often get overlooked. Do you go for high-fives? Maybe hugs? When Germain Ifedi got picked No. 31 by the Seahawks, he and his group were way too excited to coordinate any celebration. So instead they jumped around in a giant pile.

There was a brief awkward moment there where Infedi, his family, friends and agent, Spencer Cannold, seem a little unsure of what they are going to do. Are we jumping? We're jumping!

When you're a first-round pick -- or the agent of a first-round pick -- you get to celebrate in any way possible.

Or maybe it wasn't so random at all. We just couldn't hear the music.

So what did the other end of that conversation sound like? While Ifedi was busy jumping, Seattle general manager John Schneider sounded genuinely concerned on the other end. It all turned out OK!

First, a video of Laremy Tunsil smoking a substance out of a gas mask turned up on the NFL prospect’s Twitter account.

The NFL Draft once again opened with fans booing the hell out of Roger Goodell

In his first month in MLB, Dodgers sensation Kenta Maeda's pretty much done nothing but baffle opposing hitters. He entered Thursday night's matchup against the Marlins at 3-0, sporting a 0.66 ERA with 25 K's in 27 1/3 innings pitched. And if position players haven't been able to figure him out, it just seems cruel to let Maeda face Jose Fernandez -- a man who, despite being both an awesome pitcher and hair styler, has slashed just .211/.217/.322 so far in his career.

But, to his eternal credit, Fernandez made contact! He grounded out to shortstop, and then made it clear he had no interest in doing that ever again:

It's okay, Jose. Not every pitcher can drop dingers like ... Kenta Maeda

Capitals winger T.J. Oshie scored his third of the game and the game-winner on a play that started off fairly simple, with a wraparound attempt behind the net. But the final verdict (game winner or no goal?) hinged on one replay frame. 

The first instinct is to go to the overhead camera. But it was clearly inconclusive:

 Marijuana Dispensary Seeks Naming Rights For Mile High Stadium

 DENVER (CBS4) – The recent bankruptcy filing by Sports Authority has raised questions about possibly renaming the stadium the Broncos play in, and a marijuana company is one such interested buyer.

Native Roots is one of Colorado’s largest dispensaries. It expanded from one to 14 stores over the last year. The marijuana dispensary chain said they are fully ready to make a multi-million dollar commitment if the contract between Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Sports Authority ever ends.

They also acknowledged the poor timing of announcing the news on April Fools’ Day, but insisted that they are serious about the proposal.

“It’s not a joke, we’re very serious,” said founding partner Rhett Jordan.

The company released a rendering of possible new branding for the stadium, which they say is just preliminary. They’d be willing to forgo the marijuana leaf in favor of its more well-known symbol, a simple tree with roots.

Native roots says the affordability of the contract isn’t a problem, whatever it may cost. For Sports Authority, it’s at $6 million a year.

“We’ve always been huge fans of the Broncos, we felt like this was a great opportunity to bring two brilliant brands together,” said Jordan.

The company says it has begun the process of acquiring the naming rights. However, since the contract still belongs to Sports Authority, Native Roots says for now that process has consisted of internal meetings.

RELATED STORIES: Marijuana Legalization Story Archive

If everything were to go as planned and the naming rights approved, its founder says the stadium will be called Native Roots Field at Mile High.

“Native Roots was born and raised in Colorado and we are the natural candidate for this. I don’t see cannabis going anywhere but up right now so we are prepared for that,” said Jordan.

CBS4 reached out to the Broncos for comment and they shared the following statement: “Sports Authority has been a great partner for many years and we certainly hope to keep it that way.”

It’s likely they thought it was a prank.

Seattle Mariners SEA 4 - 4 LAA Los Angeles Angels

 

Enjoy the many subtle reactions from one of the strangest double plays you'll ever see

main image

Daniel Nava is having a very good spring. The former hero of Red Sox Nation is in his first Spring Training with the Angels and has started out hitting 11-for-18 with five RBIs. 

Unfortunately, he didn't have such a great day on Tuesday. Sure, he did great at the plate, picking up two hits and two RBIs, but he also managed to pull a "Benny Agbayani" when he forgot how many outs there were. With a runner at first with one out in the top of the fifth, Kyle Seager hit a fly ball to left field. But after making the grab, Nava threw the ball into the stands. 

Whoops. 

description

The throw allowed Stefan Romero to go from first to third, taking two bases for the ball going out of play. Only issue, he didn't go back to tag up at first base, meaning he was called out when the Angels appealed. 

Which, if you're scoring at home, means this was your standard 7-E7-1-3 double play. I think. Honestly, if I was scoring this one, I would have just put an asterisk next to it and gone to get a hot dog. 

At least Nava was able to joke about it after the game. The outfielder told MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez, "I skipped a lot of the beginning math classes in California. Obviously I didn't stay up on my accounting. But my daughter, she'll teach me tonight how to count to 10. Or to three."

But just what went through everyone's mind during this play? I tried to investigate and put my psychic powers to the test. 

After catching the ball, Nava turned toward the outfield. It appeared that there were at least two friendly fans who were doing their darndest to let Nava know "No! There are two outs! Stop! What are you doing! What are you doooooing!" 

description

Meanwhile, here were the Angels infielders -- arms up, calling out two outs. But as you can tell by Yunel Escobar's cocked head and the glance from Gregorio Petit, these are two men who have resigned themselves to the chaos of the universe.

 description

After pointing to the outfield, presumably discussing Nava's play, this fan apparently told his seat mate. "Look, a camera! We're in our very own 'The Truman Show'!" 

description

As for the cause of the gaffe? Nava is clearly aware of the problem. "It's this darned glove," he clearly told himself. "How can a person possibly focus on the number of outs there are when these high faluting leather straps are so danged loose." 

description

Fortunately, while the rest of the play was the height of Spring Training, Mike Scioscia was in midseason form as he was aware that even if a ball is thrown out of play, you still gotta tag up. Number one indeed, Mike.

Turns out, Mookie Betts isn't the only R.B.I. Baseball 16 cover athlete

main image

As the official release date of R.B.I. Baseball 16 approaches -- it'll be up for digital download on March 29 -- there have been two important developments:

1. Along with the download on the 29th, you can also buy a physical copy of the game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in stores on April 5. So, if you still appreciate being able to hold things, this is for you:

mookie.jpg

 

If you heard Mookie Betts was going to be on the cover of a video game, you'd probably assume it was the next installment in a "superheroes fighting" franchise. Yes, Betts has actual (occasionally nerdy) superpowers. 

But on the Saturday of Red Sox Winter Weekend, Betts revealed that he's on the cover of the new R.B.I Baseball 16:

He might actually be Superman zooming halfway around the world to save a double in the gap:

 

2. We already knew that Mookie Betts would be on the cover doing his best superhero impression, but there's a new surprise for Canadian fans -- they'll get their own release with none other than Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman.

View image on Twitter

Honored.

It's basically MLB's version of Batman Vs. Superman or Captain America: Civil War, but there's no wrong answer. 

In addition to Xbox One and PS4, you can also download R.B.I. Baseball 16 for Mac/PC and supported smartphones and tablets. Baseball fans in Europe will also be able to download the game for the first time this year.

 

 

 

 

Astros dump sunflower seeds on field reporter Julia Morales, who nails segment anyway

Once upon a time, dugout shenanigans were reserved for only players. They're used to it by now, after all, and besides -- they come prepared.

Pelfrey

Ah, but those were simpler times. Last season, the Astros announced that no one was safe from projectile foodstuffs -- not even field reporter Julia Morales. First, there were giant buckets of bubble gum:

Morales

Then came the sunflower seeds. So, so many sunflower seeds:

Morales

But the Astros weren't the only ones who spent the offseason preparing for 2016. Morales studied the tape, ran the drills, and when the time came for her to return to Houston's dugout, she was unfazed:

Keep fighting the good fight, Julia. And remember: You're right next to an endless supply of helmets.

Kobe is giving away tickets to final game

Kobe Bryant giving away tickets to last game

Want to be in the arena for Kobe Bryant's final game of his 20-year career?

Well, you might just have a chance. A small chance, but a chance all the same.

In a video released Tuesday, Bryant personally invites two fans to the Staples Center for his last hurrah. Regular tickets, of course, are being sold for a minimum of $700 on ticketing sites like StubHub and Ticketmaster.

Not only do you have the chance to be in attendance, but Bryant promises that you can "sit front row, center court, meet the team, and high five as [he] takes the floor for the last time." Do you live outside of Los Angeles? No problem, Kobe's got you covered. Non-local fans will be flown in and put in a four star hotel. 

The best part, as Kobe stresses, is that you'll be helping the youth. With a minimum donation of $10 to enter the ticket pool, the proceeds will go toward the Positive Coaching Alliance, After-School All-Stars, and the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation. The more you pay, the better your odds at earning a ticket. Meaning, a $10 donation equals 100 chances. A $25 donation equals 250 chances, and so on, all the way up to $7,500 for 75,000 chances to win (as well as a pair of autographed Kobe XI's).

You can sign up at omaze.com, and sit back and wait, as the Black Mamba is set to take the Staples Center court for the final time on Wednesday, April 13 against the Utah Jazz.

FINAL/10

 New York Yankees NYY 4 - 4 NYM New York Mets

The Yankees' bullpen helped get Aaron Hicks a double

Baseball is a team sport. Sure, you're up there at the plate alone, facing a pitcher standing solo on the mound, and it's a little mano a mano, but there are 25 of you on a roster during a regular season and even more during Spring Training. So, there's no reason why your teammates can't help you hit a double.

Aaron Hicks, who was facing the Mets and Jacob deGrom on Wednesday, knows this. During his at-bat in the third inning, he knocked a pitch down the right-field line and let the chaos of his scattering teammates in the bullpen do the rest:

bullpen.gif

With the ball trapped under the bullpen benches, Hicks was given a ground-rule double, and he came around to score the Yankees' first run one at-bat later. He might've made it there on his own, but in this case, it was a true team effort.

The Subway Series just got a lot warmer.

Colorado Rockies COL 8 - 6 SF San Francisco Giants

Rockies pitcher Jason Gurka strikes out four batters ... in one inning

MLB's official rules state that there are only three outs in one inning. So, if a pitcher wants to strike out the side, he would need to strike out three batters. But the Rockies' Jason Gurka, perhaps trying to impress his way onto the team's Opening Day roster, decided to take things a step further during Colorado's 8-6 win over the Giants on Wednesday -- striking out four hitters in one frame:

OK, yes -- this only happened because of the dropped third strike to Rando Moreno, but it's still rare and pretty impressive. Only 74 big leaguers have ever done it. Let's hope he goes for five (or just all 27) next time out.

But then he goes and does things like this. We know that as an offensive player it's important to distance yourself from your defender, but this one might be a little too much considering that he hit Kevin Durant in the groin. This hit to the groin doesn't work on so many levels, Chris Paul. D'Angelo Russell's, on the other hand, does.

Weapons seized by Australia may have come from Iran, intended for Houthis

Middle East weapons seizure Weapons seized by the HMAS Darwin off the coast of Oman

(CNN)An Australian naval ship has seized a large arms cache that may have come from Iran and headed to Yemen by way of Somalia.

The Australian Navy said that one of its ships patrolling the region, the HMAS Darwin, intercepted a small, stateless fishing vessel about 170 nautical miles off the coast of Oman when it made the discovery.

On board they found more than 2,000 pieces of weaponry -- including 1,989 AK-47 assault rifles and 100 rocket-propelled grenades.

According to a U.S. assessment, the weapons were initially sent from Iran and were likely intended for Houthi rebels in Yemen, Lt. Ian McConnaughey with the U.S. Navy told CNN.

U.S. Central Command is still gathering more information to determine the arms' final destination, McConnaughey said.

An Australian Defense Ministry spokesman told CNN there were 18 people of various nationalities on board the ship, but officials could not initially confirm that their identification documents were valid.

Authorities believe the weapons were headed for Somalia based on interviews with crew members, but that information is preliminary and may change as the investigation continues, the spokesman said.

The crew was allowed to depart after the weapons were seized, in accordance with international maritime law.

Combined Maritime Forces

Australia is part of a multinational naval partnership, the Combined Maritime Forces, that helps police more than three million square miles of international waters.

CMF routinely conducts boardings to determine the origin of unmarked vessels (so-called "flag verification boardings") on a "regular basis," according to McConaughey. A similar number of weapons was seized in September by coalition forces.

The Darwin was on its first patrol in the region when it conducted this seizure, Vice Admiral David Johnston of the Australian Navy said.

"Darwin's successful boarding and subsequent seizure of the weapons concealed under fishing nets highlights the need to remain vigilant in the region," he said.

Previous accusations

Iran has been accused before of attempting to arm the Shiite Houthis in a civil war that's largely a proxy fight between those two parties and Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi, who is backed by Saudi Arabia and other Sunni gulf states.

For years, the Houthis have held sway in northern Yemen but lacked influence in the country's Sunni-led government.

The Houthi rebels seized the presidential palace in January last year, temporarily forcing Hadi from Sanaa, the capital city.

He returned in large part with the help of airstrikes from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and others that joined to battle Houthis last March.

Just south of Yemen across the Gulf of Aden, Somalia has been mired in similar violence since civil war broke out there in the early 1990s, following the collapse of the Siad Barre regime. Its relatively ineffective institutions -- Somalia has consistently been ranked as one of the world's most fragile or failed states by international observers -- largely failed to stymie the rise of piracy and Islamic extremism.

The United Nations has placed arms embargoes on Somalia and rebels in Yemen.

Houston Rockets HOU 113 - 107 TOR Toronto Raptors

 

James Harden, Just What The Hell Are You Doing On This Play?

James Harden, Just What The Hell Are You Doing On This Play?
 
 There are two critical facts that need to be laid out in order to establish the context of the above play: 1) When this happened, the Rockets were up two with less than three minutes left in the game, and the game had just resumed after a timeout; and 2) The Rockets have yet to mention anything about Harden ingesting an exotic neurotoxin or something, so we can assume he was in fact not incapacitated by nefarious means during this play, despite the lil’ nap he took on this play.

Anyway, the Rockets won in Toronto tonight thanks to Harden’s 40 points (on 20 shots) and 14 assists. You could argue that the Rockets would never have been up two with less than three minutes left in the game in the first place without James Harden scoring all those points. You’d surely point out that Harden played 40 minutes last night and scored 36 points on the road. You could make the case that a man who scores all those dang points gets tired occasionally and deserves to take a rest now and then. These are all fair and valid points.

However, LOOK AT THAT DEFENSE LOOK AT THAT SHIT HE JUST STANDS THERE MAN.

 Pro Skier Angel Collinson Survived a 1,000-Foot Tumble on Alaska Mountain [VIDEO]

 Angel Collinson, a 25-year old professional skier and environmental law student at the University of Utah, survived what The Daily Mail says was a 1,000-foot tumble in one minute at the Neacola Range in Alaska. At the end of this video, you can see cameras zoom in on her as she emphatically yells that she’s okay.

“I was worried about my neck, head and face so tried to cover them with my arms,” she said afterward, via TDM. “I got really lucky. I jammed two fingers and that was it. I lost everything out of my pack, but other than that I was totally fine.”

MLB Tonight breaks down Jose Bautista's epic bat flip using Statcast technology

main image

By Mike Bertha |

The integration of Statcast™ technology into MLB broadcasts and highlights has revolutionized the way we look at monster home runs, insane diving catches and blazing speed on the basepaths. Now, it's being used to break down epic celebrations, too.

On Wednesday night, Jose Bautista hit the biggest home run of his long career -- a game-winner in Game 5 of the ALDS that he punctuated with a bat flip that surely made KBO players feel inadequate.

Well, the fine folks at MLB Tonight took that Statcast™ technology and applied it - finding that Joey Bats' bat reached a height of 10.6 feet off the ground and was suspended in the air for 1.74 seconds.

We're just a season or two away from Billy Beane assembling a full team of power hitters based on some new-fangled advanced bat flip metric like wFROB+ (Weighted Full Rotations On a Bat flip Plus).

Behind ace Jake Arrieta, the Chicago Cubs are advancing in the postseason. The Cubs beat the Pirates in the wild card game last night and world renowned Cubs fan Eddie Vedder was in Pittsburgh to help the Cubbies celebrate. Could this be the year?? Thanks to Hall of Very Good for the heads up.

Billy Crystal was not really feeling the strike zone during the AL Wild Card Game

It's got to be great to be famous and beloved, right? When you're a celebrity, people are probably extra nice to you. They probably bend over backwards to make you happy, just because they want to be your plus one the next time you host the Oscars (which you do in cycles, like an awards show Halley's Comet).

If you can't tell, I'm specifically referring to Billy Crystal, a celebrity who we can all agree seems to be having a lot of fun. But there are some forces of the world that just aren't all that impressed with fame. Here's a partial list: Gravity, electromagnetism and MLB umpires.

Korean Baseball Player Delivers Epic Bat Flip on Routine Fly Out to Left Field

Check out Kim Sa-yeon of KT Wiz admiring his fly ball to left field in Korean Baseball Organization action. Isn’t this fun? Isn’t it refreshing to see a baseball player not acting like a robot? Sure, it probably hurt the pitcher’s feelings when Sa-yeon flipped his bat up in the air, but if the pitcher doesn’t want his feelings hurt, he shouldn’t allow routine fly balls to left field.

Give credit to Sa-yeon for playing the game the way he wants to play it and not conforming to the old-school’s curmudgeonly ways.

I think we can all agree that Major League Baseball could use more of this, especially if it wants to attract young fans.

Fan perseveres while missing three foul balls at Yankee Stadium

This guy had a rough night on Tuesday. He had front row seats for a Yankees – Red Sox game in New York and the Red Sox won, 10-4. He had a pop foul go through his hands. Then a ground ball foul hit him in the chest. Then a ballboy tried to throw the poor guy a ball and it bounced up and hit him in the face. For his sake, I hope this wasn’t a first date. Usually you don’t have to pay so much for such public embarrassment.

CHICAGO -- Bulls guard Derrick Rose suffered a left orbital fracture during Tuesday's practice and will undergo surgery Wednesday, the team announced.

A timetable for his return will not be known until after the surgery, the Bulls said. They will provide an update at that time.

The fracture to his eye socket is the latest in a long line of health issues for the 2010-11 MVP. He tore the ACL in his left knee in April 2012 and missed the 2012-13 season. He then tore the medial meniscus in his right knee in November 2013 and missed the rest of the 2013-14 season.

Rose also had a meniscectomy on his right knee in February and missed 31 regular-season games during the 2014-15 season (including for illness and rest). In total, Rose has played in just 100 regular-season games since the beginning of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.
