‘Home Teams vs. Hunger’ initiative aims to address Minnesota’s growing need

If you find those numbers sobering, you’re not alone. Minnesota Timberwolves guard Josh Okogie felt the same way.

“That’s a big number if you think about all those people that need help,” he said. “We have to get that number down by all means necessary.”

The local pro sports teams are doing their part this week, joining forces with Fox Sports North and other local media outlets to support Minnesotans in need through an initiative called “Home Teams vs. Hunger.” Launched Wednesday and running through Sept. 30, the effort is aimed at raising funds to tackle hunger.

Gavaskar creates controversy with comment on Kohli and Anushka

In the commentary box, Gavaskar came up with a comment involving Kohli’s wife Anushka.

The legendary Sunil Gavaskar on Friday found himself in the midst of a controversy for making an unsavoury comment against Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma after the Indian captain’s forgettable outing in the IPL.

After dropping two catches, Kohli, undoubtedly one of the best when it comes to chases, failed with the bat, managing just a run off five balls against Kings XI Punjab here on Thursday night.

In the commentary box, Gavaskar came up with a comment involving Kohli’s actor wife Anushka.

The remark was in bad taste and did not go down well with the RCB skipper’s fans, with some of them urging the BCCI to remove Gavaskar from the commentary panel.

Over the years, on quite a...

Gary Kubiak on Vikings’ offensive woes: ‘I’ve got to do a better job’

In their first two games, both lopsided losses, the Vikings have called 56 pass plays and run the ball 40 times, four by quarterback Kirk Cousins. They haven’t been able to run as much as they want because with the defense struggling they’ve fallen way behind in games.

“That’s what we are,’’ offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said Thursday about Minnesota’s style. “That’s what we want, and we came out of training camp with a good, solid training camp and obviously that hasn’t correlated to the first two weeks, but we’ve got to stay positive and stay committed to what we want to be as a group.’’

Kubiak said the Vikings’ rushing average per carry of 5.4 yards has “been pretty good” and they “haven’t run it enough.’’ Entering Sunday’s game against Tennessee at U.S...

Organisers of the French Open, which gets underway four months later than planned in Paris on Sunday, had hoped for a maximum of 5,000.

A maximum of only 1,000 people will be allowed each day at Roland Garros after the French government insisted Thursday on tougher restrictions to counter the resurgence of the coronavirus.

That figure had already been reduced from 20,000 and then 11,500.

The decision by the French government will be a huge blow to Roland Garros which last year attracted on average around 37,000 fans a day.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex, speaking on France 2 TV, insisted that the Grand Slam tournament must be subject to the same ...
