The Jacksonville Jaguars led the Nike uniform revolution five years ago with a unique, somewhat controversial look, capped by a two-toned helmet.

What began as a hashtag is becoming just that: a movement. And that’s the phrasing Griffin prefers. A movement implies he’s far from finished. He knows he’s inspiring every kid with any type of birth defect. (I’ll set the path for them, and they’ll just walk it.) He knows he can change the world. (When people see me on the field, they’ll think, Wow, he’s really doing this.) Whereas a feel-good story is flowery and abstract, a movement never sleeps.
But a movement could also die off if Griffin doesn’t play on Sundays.
In an epic 10th frame, Golden strings together three straight strikes and yells, That’s how you end it! to hand Griffin the L, 152 to 138. Not that Griffin caught the heroics.

Sad case, he says, smiling, before walking off and perching a leg atop the back of another couch to relax.
Maybe the Giants like what they have in 2017 third-round pick Davis Webb, but they’re not sold he’s the guy of the future, it’d make sense for the team to search for that guy [checks watch] right about now.
Of course, it’s possible Gettleman is saying all this with the knowledge he isn’t interested in taking Saquon Barkley at No. 2 and that he’s in the market for a quarterback. It’s lying season, after all.
But if it’s an act, Gettleman played the role of Football Guy Who Wants To Win Super Bowl 23 Instead Of Super Bowl 53 convincingly.
Over his mild hip injury, left-hander CC Sabathia came off the 10-day to start and allowed two unearned runs in 4 1/3 innings. Pitching for the first time since April 6, Sabathia was pulled from a 2-2 game with a runner on first and one out in the Blue Jays due to his pitch count being at 71.
After batting third in the Yankees’ first 16 games, Giancarlo Stanton dropped to cleanup and was 1-for-3 with an infield single and walk.
