Revis fights boredom on the field

First to make his way in 2012 to Darrelle Revis' Island will be Bills wideout Stevie Johnson, who has enjoyed modest success -- to the tune of 79.5 yards in two Buffalo losses last season -- against Revis. [Revis] is at the height of his powers entering his sixth season. Like Jordan, he constantly invents ways to motivate himself. He laughs at the suggestion that Johnson "owns" him. ... He's also trying to stay sharp, with so few teams throwing his way. "You're fighting boredom," Revis said. "One of the things is really fighting boredom out there, because I don't really get the ball thrown to me that much. So I just got to be prepared at all times and should expect the ball to come at me at any given time ... I don't get bored, but you got to be aware of it." (New York Daily News) Comment

Howard professes love for Orlando

No hard feelings? Dwight Howard is professing his love for the city of Orlando and its fans. Howard purchased a full-page ad in [Sunday's] Orlando Sentinel to convey the message. In that ad, which appears on Page C7, Howard said, "To play the game of basketball in the NBA is a blessing and to have had the opportunity to play before the Orlando fans for eight years was truly a privilege and an honor. Words cannot express the love that I have for Orlando. With your support we have done great things in this city from hanging banners to impacting our youth. Although my career with the Magic has come to a close, my love for the city and the people that make it beautiful will never end." (Orlando Sentinel) Comment

Baseball's best team according to...

The Rangers certainly caught the attention of Cleveland over the weekend. [On Sunday,] Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy all hit solo home runs in the Texas fifth. Derek Holland (10-6) gave up two runs over seven innings as the AL West-leading Rangers took two of three in the series. Texas matched its best record through 133 games, having also gone 79-54 in 1999. "Texas is probably the best team in baseball, period," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "The guy hitting ninth today (Jurickson Profar) could be in the middle of the order for most teams. And how do you get the ball through the infield with the guys they have playing there? They should go very deep, if not back to the World Series, again this year." (The Dallas Morning News) Comment
