Re: Sports Scoreboard Madden NFL's Official Simulation Predicts Rams Win vs. Patriots in Super Bowl LIII

Super Bowl week is finally here and Madden NFL's official pick is in.
In its annual simulation prediction, EA Sports's Madden is predicting a Los Angeles Rams 27–24 upset win over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
Aaron Donald was key to Los Angeles's virtual victory and sacked Brady four times en route to Super Bowl MVP honors.
In this Super Bowl simulation, the Patriots jumped to an early 17–3 halftime lead before failing to stop the Rams' high-powered offense in the second half. A late touchdown from running back Todd Gurley helped give Los Angeles the win.
Last year, Madden's simulation predicted a Patriots win over Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles, which only to be proved wrong when the Eagles won 41–33 in Super Bowl LII.
Madden has correctly predicted the Patriots' Super Bowl outcomes in three of four trips since the simulations began nearly a decade ago. It has been correct five of nine times overall.
The Rams and Patriots will meet on Sunday, Feb. 3. Kickoff is slated at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Re: Sports Scoreboard ( Report) - Lindsey Vonn Announces Retirement from Professional Skiing
Putting an end to all of the speculation about her career, Lindsey Vonn announced Friday she will retire from professional skiing. In a post on her official Facebook page, Vonn said she will take part in the world championships next week in Sweden before hanging up her skis.
Questions about Vonn's future grew after she was unable to finish a run at the World Cup super-G on Jan. 20 with pain in her knee stemming from multiple surgeries throughout the course of her career. "I've had four surgeries on my right knee. I've got no LCL (lateral collateral ligament) on my left knee. I've got two braces on. There's only so much I can handle and I might have reached my maximum," Vonn told reporters. "I'm not sure. I've got to take a couple days' time and really think about things."
Vonn, 34, became the first American woman in history to win an Olympic gold medal in the downhill race in 2010. She also won two gold medals at the 2009 World Championships in the downhill and super-G. Her final Olympic appearance in 2018 resulted in a bronze medal in the downhill. She also placed sixth in the super-G. Vonn also won the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup overall title four times in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012.
What an amazing career she has had. And what a testament to her determination and hard work to come back again and again from injury! I suspect we'll see her announcing or otherwise still deeply involved in the sport.
Re: Sports Scoreboard Lis, the great knight who beats the Bud Knight is Ser Gregor Clegane, the insanely violent protector of Cersei Lannister. The dragon [sign in to see URL] dragon. There are three of them.
If you don't get HBO, read the books. There are 5 of them and they will get you through the first 4-5 seasons of the show, plot-wise. It appears as though the author, George R.R. Martin may never finish book 6 and 7, but the story will be completed in the HBO series. These are very long reads, each running 800-900 pages in length. They are very good though and a lot of fun.
