Fever give promote Kelly Krauskopf to president

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana Fever general manger Kelly Krauskopf has a new title - team president.

The team announced Tuesday that it had promoted the longtime front-office executive a little more than a week after the Fever won its first WNBA championship.

Krauskopf has been Indiana's chief operating officer since 1999 when the team was founded and became the GM in 2004, constructing teams that have made eight straight playoff appearances. Team owner Herb Simon praised Krauskopf for her basketball knowledge.

She also has helped select the women's Olympic team since 2000 and served as the league's first director of basketball operations before joining the Fever. The Texas A&M graduate also was assistant athletic director for sports at her alma mater and assistant commissioner of the now defunct Southwest Conference.

Derrius Guice saw 'Avengers' on Monday night — and brought a bunch of Redskins fans with him

Derrius Guice saw 'Avengers' on Monday night — and brought a bunch of Redskins fans with him

Those who are worried about Derrius Guice's character picked up some added evidence when, on Monday night, the Redskins rookie invited a bunch of fans to watch Avengers with him in Ashburn.

Man, what is this guy's deal?

First of all, not everyone likes superheroes. So how did he know that those who joined him actually wanted to see Avengers?  Did he even ask? What if they wanted to see that really successful, really funny, really well-regarded Amy Schumer comedy, instead?

Then, there's the issue of Guice buying tickets and concessions for those who showed up.

Some people enjoy buying movie tickets — which are absolutely reasonably priced these days — and, as far as the concessions, seriously? Candy? Popcorn? He could've at least offered to buy something healthier, like broccoli. All movie theaters have broccoli.  

Thankfully, those who took Guice up on his invitation weren't grateful for the experience at all, which hopefully means this will be the last time he orchestrates a dastardly deed like this one:

At this point, it's a surprise Guice didn't slide even farther down in the draft, like to the 15th round. Unbelievable.
