There's Something Strange About Peyton Manning's 'Furious' HGH Denial
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning gave a confusing response Sunday when pressed to explain allegations that a clinic sent NFL-banned performance-enhancing drugs to his house under his wife's name, first calling the reports "complete trash" and then distancing himself from his wife's prescriptions. After an Al Jazeera documentary, "The Dark Side: Secrets of the Sports Dopers," aired earlier that day and included the claim that a clinic mailed human growth hormone and other drugs to Manning's wife, Manning went on ESPN to clear things up.  "It’s completely fabricated, complete trash, garbage," Manning told ESPN host Lisa Salters. He denied ever using HGH. He also said he attended the Guyer Institute in Indiana -- where the pharmacist worked who alleged sending HGH to Manning's wife -- to recover from a neck injury in 2011. The pharmacist, Charlie Sly, has since recanted the claims, telling ESPN that he "made up" the HGH delivery. Manning also denied eve ...

CINCINNATI – Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton wasn’t happy with comments defensive end J.J. Watt made to ESPN after the Texans’ 10-6 victory. Watt told Lisa Salters, “Our goal was to come out here and make the Red Rifle look like a Red Rider BB Gun, and I think we did that tonight.” Dalton’s nickname is the Red Rifle because of his red hair. // < ![CDATA[ addResponsivePlayer( "10ebcux0g1jyx1wr8r52fnxq84", "C6D065C213A84966E0440021281A8A86", "1hj4n8mx5x7lw12bq9w82m5aqr", "perf10ebcux0g1jyx1wr8r52fnxq84-1hj4n8mx5x7lw12bq9w82m5aqr", "eplayer40", {autoHide:true, age:1451368975000}); // ]]> Watt went on to praise Dalton – calling him a great quarterback and the Bengals a great team – but Dalton didn’t like the Red Rider comment. “I’m disappointed in him because of the integrity of this game,” Dalton said. “I have a lot of respect for him.

LeBron Has Fun With Another Fan
Huffington Post - about 4 years
LeBron James had some fun with a fan during the Heat's blowout win over the Clippers on Friday night. After Dwyane Wade deflected the ball into the stands in the final minute of the first half, LeBron called for the fan who came up with the ball to pass it to him. The pass was a little too slow for James, though. So he demanded a better one. LeBron delivered a chest pass right back to the fan, who was wearing a James jersey, and called for it again. The fans who noticed started to cheer as the brief game of catch seemed to make the man's night. "I wanted to keep the ball. I thought the ball was mine. When he threw it back to me, I thought he was giving it back to me," the fan named Adolpho told ESPN's Lisa Salters. "This is the most exciting thing I ever lived in my life." The interaction also seemed to please ESPN announcer Jeff Van Gundy. "See that's great. And I'm glad the referee didn't call delay of game and all of that," he said. "That's good officiatin ...

    More Details Hide Details Born in 1966 and a native of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, Salters graduated from Penn State University in 1988 with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism.

    More Details Hide Details In one of her sideline reports during the first half she mentioned Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel's frustration due to Missouri being stymied by the Oklahoma defense, saying Daniel was "upset" and "fuming." However, a technical blunder caused Salters' microphone to be broadcast over the stadium's PA system. The camera shifted to Chase Daniel, who was visibly perplexed and curious as to who was talking about him and why it was being heard throughout the entire stadium. ABC TV announcer Brent Musburger then mused, "Lisa was talking to a lot more folks than she anticipated." The likely explanation was that Salters' mic was to have been hooked up to the PA for the upcoming halftime contest, and her mic was inadvertently left on the PA after a pregame sound check. Prior to joining ESPN, Salters served as a Los Angeles-based correspondent for ABC News from 1995 to 2000 and provided news coverage for World News Tonight with Peter Jennings and other ABC News broadcasts.
