Anthony Davis injury revelation

Yesterday, news came out that Pelicans star Anthony Davis will miss the 2016 Rio Olympics recovering from shoulder and knee surgeries. More surprising, however was the revelation that he had been playing with a torn labrum for the last three years.

The New York Jets and Giants would like to host another Super Bowl after hosting Super Bowl XLVIII in February 2014, according to Newsday.

“We are as serious as you can get,” Jets owner Woody Johnson said.

“I think we did a good job. We put on a great stage,” Johnson added. “It wasn’t a great game, but it was a great stage and the weather was extremely good. We lucked out.”

The Seattle Seahawks dismantled Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43–8 in the championship game, when Russell Wilson was named Super Bowl MVP.
