Cavaliers' Kevin Love not considering retirement after injuries, withdrawal from Team USA, per report

  Cavaliers' Kevin Love not considering retirement after injuries, withdrawal from Team USA, per report Love played only 25 games last seasonAccording to Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor, retirement is not an option Love is considering. Love will sit down with the Cavaliers at some point this offseason to discuss his future, but for the time being, Love wants to continue to play. He has an enormous financial incentive to do so. Love is owed over $60 million for the next two seasons, and he has little reason to sacrifice that money. He has acknowledged recently though that his role is probably going to change if he is going to contribute to a winning team again.

Vikings nose tackle Michael Pierce opted out of last season over COVID-19 concerns. Pierce currently is rehabbing off to the side, while waiting for medical clearance to practice.

He strained his left calf while working out in Alabama this summer.

Pierce said Thursday he expects to return “soon.”

“I actually injured it three weeks before you guys found out,” Pierce said, via Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune. “So it’s doing a lot better, is a lot further along than what coach and them expected. When I came back from ‘Bama and started getting treatments, they were pretty shocked, so that’s a good thing.”

Cyprus showcases ancient undersea harbor to draw tourists

  Cyprus showcases ancient undersea harbor to draw tourists AMATHUS, Cyprus (AP) — It’s said that Demetrius the Besieger, a mighty warrior king and one of Alexander the Great’s successors, built this harbor on Cyprus’ southern coast 2,400 years ago to thwart a potential naval invasion from the ruler of Egypt, Ptolemy I, another of Alexander’s heirs. French archaeologists who initially studied the ancient harbor of Amathus believe it to be an incomplete military fortification work, the three piers of which would have accommodated the best of the ancient world’s naval ships, ready to repel an attacking force.

The Vikings signed Pierce last year to replace nose tackle Linval Joseph, but Pierce sat out last season. That means he last put on shoulder pads 18 months ago.

“It will be a little bit of nervousness, a little butterflies, but I think that happens at any point in camp,” Pierce said. “Just anxiousness. I’ll probably have to like pull myself back a little bit. I’m itching. If you can’t tell, I’m fidgety, but once this calf gets to 100 percent, I’ll be able to roll.”
