If you’ve been following the news in the sports world, you know this year’s NBA free agency has been crazy. One of the most interesting parts of free agency is all the rumors and speculation where a player will land. Nobody really knows where a player is going to sign, but the media likes to act like they do.
Free agency new is often reported on Twitter from media with information from an unnamed source (probably their opinion). Blake Griffin of the LAs Angeles Clippers took notice of the media’s reporting.
the fact that nobody has legally changed their name to "sources" and taken credit for every breaking sports story is insane.

Ray Ratto of CSN had a fantastic reply to Griffin’s tweet.
@blakegriffin32 But then someone does that and then someone else has to change his name to "someone close to the situation." It never ends.

Iceland vs. France is Going to be One to Watch
One of the biggest upsets in international soccer could happen today. The cinderella story of Iceland making it to the quarterfinals of the Euro 2016 is one that country will never forget.
Iceland is the smallest country to ever qualify for a European championship. Iceland’s coach has a second job as a dentist and their goal-keeper is a part-time film producer. How can you not root for them?
After stunning England in the previous round, Iceland looks to continue their fairy tale today at 3 p.m. on ESPN.
If you see me during the game, I’ll probably be doing this.
