Sport VOTE: Yellow? Red? Crazy incident in 6-goal Luton Town-Swans (video)
Red Sox place right-hander Nick Pivetta on COVID-19 IL as outbreak worsens
The Red Sox now have a combination of 12 players and coaches sidelined due to the coronavirus. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts; utility man Enrique Hernandez; second baseman Christian Arroyo; infielder Yairo Munoz; and pitchers Matt Barnes, Hirokazu Sawamura and Martin Perez tested positive for COVID-19, while left-hander Josh Taylor and first-base coach Tom Goodwin are in quarantine as close contacts. Quality control coach Ramon Vazquez has also tested positive for the virus.
It’s a potential legbreaker, but is it on purpose?
On first blush, it’s very difficult to make any excuses for Luton Town’s Henri Lansbury when he smashes into Swansea City’s Ryan Manning in Championship action on Saturday.
Probably on second look and a third review, too, if we’re honest.
But Hatters fans are in the comments section to let you know that Lansbury had no idea he’d connect with a mischievous Manning when he let fly with his long ball attempt in the Luton Town end.
It was 3-0 to the Hatters in the 28th minute when Manning walked toward a deadball to poke it away from Lansbury’s long run-up, and that didn’t stop Lansbury from making a full-blooded attempt at a 60-yard long ball and Manning was dropped to the turf.
UCLA is having a blast trolling Ed Orgeron after Saturday’s win

It came after Orgeron was spotted in a viral video humorously trading shots with a UCLA fan prior to the game.Naturally, the Bruins are having a blast taking advantage of that viral video after the win.

Both were sent off.
Both were shown yellow cards.
The thing is, if the referee is going to discipline this, how can it not be a red? He’s clearly seen it, viewed it as a foul, and issued a… yellow?
It’s difficult not to recall Lansbury’s reputation here. The 30-year-old has been shown the most yellow cards this year and been whistled for the fourth-most fouls. Lansbury also has 93 career yellow cards.
Alas, officiating is supposed to be done in a vacuum and even if it wasn’t, Manning’s been fouled 20 times — the third-most in the Championship.
The game was absolutely insane: The good, bad, and the ugly. The good? Six goals in a 3-3 draw as Swans came back. The bad (and maybe the ugly)? This foul.
And the ugly? Swansea released a statement alleging that.
‘I think she’s out,’ deputy says after violent arrest
A woman who pulled off a road to change drivers during a trip with her father and three young children was knocked unconscious and arrested by two Northern California sheriff's deputies, who then lied about the encounter to responding paramedics and on official reports, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday. Body cameras worn by the deputies with the Solano County Sheriff's Office recorded them pulling guns on Nakia Porter before slamming her to the pavement while handcuffing her along a rural road in the town of Dixon on the night of Aug. 6, 2020. Porter's father, Joe Powell, was also placed in handcuffs and briefly detained.
