NBC still going for the gold in on-air blunders

Today 06:05 GMT

Most recently, sportscaster Dan Hicks doubled down on a gaffe Saturday night while covering the women’s super-G skiing event, and ski analyst Bode Miller and hockey analyst Mike Milbury faced backlash for some on-air comments.

Hicks covered an Alpine race in which little-known Ester Ledecka of the Czech Republic beat Austria's Anna Veith, and won the gold medal. Ledecka, who ranked No. 43 in the world, was considered to have so little chance to win that Hicks declared Veith the winner and NBC switched away.

New Zealand v England: Hosts reach T20 tri-series final despite defeat

Today 03:19 GMT

Captain Eoin Morgan hit 80 not out to help England post 194-7, ensuring they needed to restrict New Zealand to less than 175 to go through on net run rate.

Knowing they had to win by at least 20 runs, England ultimately squandered the chance to reach the final with a careless bowling display as New Zealand reached 77-0 after the opening six-over powerplay. David Willey and Curran continually strayed onto Munro's pads, allowing the opener to smash several sixes deep into the stands over square leg.

Today 06:05 GMT

GANGNEUNG, South Korea—The confrontation of the U.S. and Russian men’s hockey teams in the Winter Games tournament here on Saturday promised to test the Olympic goal of promoting peace through sport.

VAR: Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says system must be perfect

Today 06:05 GMT

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says the video assistant referee (VAR) system must be improved after his side had a goal ruled out in their 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round win at Huddersfield.

8 January - Brighton's win over Crystal Palace is the first English club game with VAR available, but it was not used to overturn a decision. 16 January - Leicester's Kelechi Iheanacho has a goal disallowed in the win over Fleetwood for offside - but it is then awarded after VAR consultation. 17 January - Chelsea's Willian is booked for diving against Norwich, when it appeared he was fouled in the box, but the VAR did not launch a review. 27 January - In Liverpool v West Brom, the referee and VAR consulted to rule out an Albion goal, give Liverpool a penalty and delay awarding the Baggies their winner. The video assistant referee (VAR) system - which is being used in some Fifa tournaments, as well as Serie A and the Bundesliga, has been trialled in certain FA Cup games this season involving Premier League clubs.

Maryland honors its recent past as it fights off Rutgers in the present

Today 04:15 GMT

Maryland’s 61-51 win over Rutgers on Saturday night at times felt like a quiet victory against an overmatched mid-major in the middle of December.

Then Maryland reverted to its usual late-game self, falling asleep on both ends of the floor as Rutgers (13-16, 3-13) cut into the deficit. The Scarlet Knights pieced together a quick 10-0 run to cut Maryland’s lead to nine points, and Turgeon could be heard screaming for a timeout as the home crowd groaned.

Opinion: The decision is irrelevant; VAR sucks the emotion out of football

Sunday 19:59 GMT

It's why Mainz supporters, ahead of a game against Cologne in which they were incorrectly awarded a penalty by the VAR, demanded: "Reclaim the game! Scrap VAR!". For fans watching on television, it's different.

When referee Markus Schmidt made the gesture that match-going football supporters are beginning to dread, Cologne's joy was cut short as the video assistant referee (VAR) ruled, correctly, that Marcel Risse had been offside.

Taking Playtime Seriously

Sunday 19:59 GMT

“Play is not a specific activity, it’s an approach to learning, an engaged, fun, curious way of discovering your world,” Dr. Tamis-LeMonda said.

Part of encouraging play is pulling back on how much programmed goal-directed learning we expect from very young children, to leave them time for the fun of exploration, curiosity and, well, fun. But another important part may be creating environments that foster children’s play and parents’ participation and attention.
