^Arash Markazi: Hulk Hogan hopes to return for one final WWE match at WrestleMania<

^WRE-MARKAZI-COLUMN-SPORTSPLUS:LA_

It's a daily challenge for the pro wrestling legend who admits that at 66 years old, he doesn't look as good as he might appear when the cameras are on.

"I got it figured out," he said as he straightens his famous blond horseshoe mustache with a small comb. "When I go home with my wife and my four Chihuahuas, the headband comes off and the fake hair comes out and I'm (a) beach bum. But whenever I leave the house, I know I have to be Hulk Hogan."

BKL-SUN-MYSTICS:HC _ The Connecticut Sun led at halftime and were in control with a nine-point third-quarter lead but weren't able to withstand a ferocious Washington Mystics comeback led by Emma Meesseman, ultimately losing the winner-take-all Game 5 of the WNBA Finals, 89-78.

With the loss, the Sun drop the franchise's third WNBA Finals, with the other two series coming under current Mystics coach Mike Thibault. The Mystics won a franchise-first title, and it was Thibault's first championship as well.

^Rays 1, Astros 6: Rays season ends due to dreadful start and a dazzling Gerrit Cole<

BBA-RAYS-ASTROS:PT _ The Rays spent much of the last two weeks celebrating.

They sprayed champagne in Toronto when they clinched their first playoff berth in six years, then again in Oakland when the won the AL wild-card game. After losing the first two games of the AL division series to Astros, they won Games 3 and 4 at home, reviving their hopes and potentially their fractured fanbase, by forcing a fifth and deciding game. They talked of how much they loved playing together and each other, and were determined to keep going.

But Thursday, it all came to a quiet end in a 6-1 loss to an Astros team that looked very much like the majors' best.

The Phillies fired their manager on Thursday, a source said, after they missed the playoffs following an offseason in which they invested nearly a half-billion dollars in their roster.

^Benjamin Hochman: Cardinals give Braves the foam finger in Game 5 win that's vicious and delicious<

BBN-HOCHMAN-COLUMN:SL _ Wednesday's battle wasn't on a diamond; it was inside the ring, and the Cardinals attacked with a brutal bunch of punches, which knocked out Atlanta before it even had a chance to be brave.

Over the generations, the Cardinals have won a lot of things a lot of ways, but they've never won anything like this: with a 10-run, first-inning haymaker, on the road, in a postseason elimination game, against a starting hurler who, in Game 2, pitched seven scoreless innings against them.

Nix and Thomas Cosgrove, a 12th-round pick by the Padres in 2017 who played for Single-A Lake Elsinore last season, were arrested a short while later.

^BBN-DODGERS-DECISIONS:LA_< After the carnage, after his decisions blew up in his face, after the Los Angeles Dodgers' season came to a stupefyingly abrupt conclusion in a season-ending loss to the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, Dave Roberts maintained he understood the cresting surge of criticism.

"If the blame falls on me, I've got no problem with it," the Dodgers manager said following the 7-3, 10-inning defeat in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

"I feel that my job is to put guys in the best position to have success, and if it doesn't work out, there's always going to be second-guessing, and I got no problem wearing the brunt of that. That's OK."

The Washington Redskins play the Dolphins on Sunday, and there is a very real danger that the Dolphins could win. That would be a disastrous blow to the Dolphins' goal of losing all their games this season so that next year they can draft a top-tier quarterback, ideally Tua Tagovailoa.

FBN-CHIEFS-KELCE-COACH:KC _ Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and tight end Travis Kelce expressed tones of respect toward each other in the days after a sideline quarrel was caught on camera during the team's Sunday Night Football loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Kelce appeared to push Bieniemy after a brief exchange in the first quarter though, moments later, he then hugged the coach.

On Thursday, Bieniemy was asked by a reporter if a line was crossed when Kelce put his hands on his coach.

^DeMarcus Lawrence: Cowboys defense has lost its swagger<

FBN-COWBOYS-DEFENSE:FT _ Dallas Cowboys defensive DeMarcus Lawrence is known for his blunt assessments and colorful quotes.

Usually, they are reserved for the opposing team or a fan in the wrong jersey seeking an autograph.

But Lawrence didn't shy away when commenting about the disappointing performance of his own defense through the first five games of the season, capped by the inability to stop the run in a 34-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

^Sam Darnold's safety on the field won't be an issue for Jets, Adam Gase says<

FBN-JETS-GASE-DARNOLD:ND _ Adam Gase isn't concerned about Sam Darnold's life being in danger when he plays his first game in more than a month on Sunday.

Darnold was medically cleared for contact Tuesday from his bout with mono. Darnold has felt well enough to play, but his spleen was enlarged and needed to be reduced before he could return to full football activities.

"We should be good," Gase said Thursday morning. "We should not have him dying on the field."

Darnold has been itching to play and thought he would be cleared last week, but he said he wanted to make sure he was safe. "I'm not going to die," Darnold said last week.

^Jarvis Landry says Browns offense must be more 'intentional,' put defense on its heels to end Odell Beckham quandary<

FBN-BROWNS-OFFENSE:AK _ The question was a joking throwaway, but the answer might have been a window into the budding frustration of Browns star receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.

Asked if he had any good third-and-19 plays, Landry said Thursday: "Yeah. Maybe. Throw it to 13, 80. One of those guys."

Beckham is coming off the worst two-game stretch of his six-year career, and the Browns' passing offense ranks 20th in the league. As the Browns (2-3) went 1-1 against the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, Beckham caught a total of four passes for 47 yards.

FBN-PATRIOTS-KRAFT-GRONKOWSKI:PJ _ Never say never.

An hour before Rob Gronkowski was set to make his analyst debut on FOX Sports, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the tight end might still return to the NFL. Speaking with the NFL Network, Kraft said there's still hope that Gronk might come out of his retirement due to the fact that he never filed his retirement paperwork.

"We all love Gronk and I think the bottom line is, he hasn't put his retirement papers in," Kraft. "We can pray and hope. I think that's a good academic argument that there is hope with Gronk."

^Bucs looking to revive passing game against Panthers<

FBN-BUCCANEERS-PASSING:PT _ Can the Bucs-Panthers game turn into Miller time?

Receiver Breshad Perriman missed the week five loss with a hamstring injury, forcing the Bucs to turn to other options in the passing game. Perriman, who did not participate Thursday, will not make the trip to London for the game against the Panthers.

Rookie Scotty Miller, an option to replace Perriman's production on the field, had two targets in the Bucs second drive against the Saints, but did not receive any targets for the rest of the game.

During a visit to Wall Street in New York on Thursday, Khan told "The Street," a financial website, that he had a heart-to-heart conversation with Ramsey and said he thinks they will be able to come to a solution that makes sense for all.

"I think he's going to be playing this week, so hopefully you will tune in to the Saints game," Khan said.

^BKN-WINDSOR-COLUMN:DE_

At issue is Morey's tweet last week supporting protesters in Hong Kong: "fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong."

Well, the Chinese government didn't like it. Which means Chinese companies who do business with the NBA didn't like it. Which means Chinese citizens didn't like it, or so we're told by the Chinese government.

It's certainly nothing for staged anger from politicians like former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

^Kings guard Buddy Hield could lose millions in firestorm between NBA and China<

BKN-KINGS-HIELD-CHINA:SA _ An international firestorm between China and the NBA could cost Kings guard Buddy Hield millions of dollars on his next contract if revenue is lost and the league's salary cap is reduced.

The geopolitical flap started last week when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey posted a since-deleted tweet in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. The NBA has built a booming business relationship with China, but the league stands to lose billions of dollars in lucrative television and merchandising contracts as a result of the controversy.

HKN-REDWINGS-CANADIENS:DE _ Their top guys were back to form, and secondary scoring provided a spark.

The Detroit Red Wings ventured Thursday into a road arena that has been particularly tough for them, determined to leave with a good memory. Their performance at Bell Centre was stellar, yielding a 4-2 victory.

The Wings last beat Montreal in overtime, March 21, 2017. Since then, the Wings had lost nine straight to the Canadiens. Blowouts (10-1 in 2017, 7-3 and 8-1 last season) contributed to a staggering 48-18 edge in scoring for the Canadiens during those nine games.

HKN-WILD-JETS:MS _ Recent stops in Winnipeg have yielded mixed results for the Wild.

While this was the site of its last playoff demise in 2018, the team also went undefeated here last season to help propel it to a five-game sweep of its Central Division rivals.

And that see-saw of momentum continued to swing Thursday, as the Wild was grounded 5-2 by the Jets at Bell MTS Place to cap its season-opening stretch of three consecutive road games 0-3.

^Vahe Gregorian: Tale of two injuries at Missouri reminds that now is always the time<

FBC-GREGORIAN-COLUMN:KC _ Some saw it as just football, others as an outrage. But whatever the intent of Troy defensive lineman Travis Sailo, his wince-inducing hit Saturday on Missouri quarterback Kelly Bryant was delivered late and low and from behind and had a nauseating season-ending sort of look as Bryant recoiled.

Bryant felt the pop in his knee and tried not to think about the worst, like a torn ACL or a broken fibula, but he found himself saying a "little, quick prayer," anyway.

^No. 7 Florida prepares for hostile visit to No. 5 LSU's Death Valley Saturday night<

FBC-FLORIDA-LSU-PREVIEW:OS _ Florida offensive line coach John Hevesy's ears were ringing Tuesday evening.

Piping in crowd noise at practice to prepare for a trip to LSU's Tiger Stadium can be hazardous to one's health.

It also could be the key for the No. 7 Gators (6-0, 3-0 SEC) to walk out of Death Valley Saturday night with an upset win over the No. 5 Tigers (5-0, 1-0).

Communicating on offense, shaking off mistakes and dealing with momentum swings become increasingly difficult when most everyone in the stadium is cheering against you.

FBC-BIANCHI-COLUMN:OS _ Now we get to see what the UCF football program is really made of.

Is it a concrete-block home built on a firm foundation or is it a house of cards that collapses the first time the wind blows in the wrong direction?

"Adversity is not what defines you; how you handle adversity is what defines you," UCF coach Josh Heupel told me earlier this week, just a couple of days after the devastating second loss of the season at Cincinnati on Friday. "That's true in football and it's true in life."

Heupel is so right.

Progress?

After a nearly 40-year ban on women attending sporting events following the country's Islamic Revolution, what we are seeing Thursday is not yet cause for celebration.

That's surely the view that FIFA _ soccer's global governing body _ will take. But when you look past the images of face-painted, cheering women coming out of Iran on Thursday you realize this is just the latest example of FIFA's painfully slow progress on women's rights.

Montgomery has shown flashes, but Chicago's offense is a mess. Mostert and Williams were weekly stopgaps who paid off, but were likely no longer useful.

I did what any owner with championship aspirations would do. I gathered what assets I could afford to part with and begin shopping them. A deal was struck.
