MACKIE COLD ON NY GAME

MACKIE COLD ON NY GAME

Add Anthony Mackie to the list of people cold on next year's Super Bowl at the home stadium of New York's teams.

Though the ``Gangster Squad'' actor now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., he's from New Orleans and thinks a city like his hometown should get the Super Bowl every year.

Mackie said Friday night at an ESPN Magazine party that he doesn't want to sit outside in 30 degree weather and watch the Super Bowl.

``I want to see the girls in their pretty dresses; I want to hang out with the players. I don't want to be outside in the cold in New Jersey,'' he continued, stressing that Met Life Stadium, where both the New York Giants and Jets play, is actually in East Rutherford, N.J. ``You're not in New York. I have to take a bus from Manhattan all the way to Jersey?''

Though Mackie's Saints didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year, Mackie is still passionate about who he wants to win - the Baltimore Ravens.

``I will do everything to not see San Francisco win another Super Bowl,'' he said, hoping for a bit of karma.

Video of Michal Kempny doing bleacher runs reminds us that there is no offseason for the Capitals

There apparently is no offseason for Michal Kempny this year, especially after tearing his left hamstring this past season. 

At the Caps MedStar IcePlex, Kempny was seen putting in work doing bleacher runs on Tuesday. 

His hamstring looks great.

Thank goodness he is inside because the temperature outside has not been conducive to doing bleacher runs. 

The Caps defenseman suffered a lower-body hamstring injury on March 20 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tearing the hamstring forced him to have surgery and miss the remainder of the season. 

His absence was clearly missed for the Caps in their playoff matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. Before the injury, he scored six goals and recorded 19 assists in 71 games for the Capitals. 

Now, just to see him return to the ice.

Trea Turner hits for cycle against Rockies for the second time in his career

For the second time in his career, Trea Turner has hit for the cycle against the Rockies. This time, he did it in Nats Park. 

Turner started his day in the first inning with a solo shot to left-center to open the scoring for the Nationals. A fortunate bounce yielded an infield single in the second inning, and he smashed a liner into the right-field corner in the fifth. A double for most players, Turner's trademark speed enabled him to stretch it into a triple.

With a comfortable 8-0 lead in the seventh, Turner sent a 98 mph fastball into the gap in right-center field, completing the cycle and capping off an incredible night for the Nats. 

Turner is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season, and the 27th since 1908 to do it multiple times in his career
