president trump hits majority disapproval in record time, gallup finds


president trump's actions during his first week in office have appeared to be aimed at the voters who already supported him, not at reaching out to the rest, and that's taken a id toll on his support, which was already historically low. gallup, which has measured job approval for presidents for decades, shows trump's approval so far at 45%, with 48% disapproving. that's an average of several days' polling. the daily trend lines are not kind to the new administration. as of urday, 51% of americans disapproved of trump's performance. that's a record for the speed of getting to majority disapproval. by comparison, president george w. bush hit majority disapproval six months into his second term, in june 2005, and remained in negative territory for the rest of his tenure. president obama

will clint dempsey ever play soccer again?


with mls teams scheduled to start training for the upcoming season later this month, much has been written about the health of clint dempsey. as many of you might recall, the sounders’ designated player and u.s. international star was briefly sidelined in august with an irregular heartbeat, then began training and was shut down altogether in september due to a reoccurrence of the same symptoms.  while the sounders went on to win the mls cup in december without their star forward, dempsey publicly remains an integral part of seattle’s plans in 2017.seattle’s president of soccer garth lagerwey said late last week “we are going to do our best to get him ready to play in a safe manner, and if it happens, great, and if it doesn’t, then we’ll be patient and wait as long as it takes.”  bruce aren

lack of sleep aside, ryan braun back and healthy for brewers


milwaukee — the biggest problem that ryan braun has had this winter has been a lack of sleep.life has changed for the milwaukee brewers slugger after his wife, larisa, gave birth to the couple's second child in september.otherwise, braun said he feels as fit as he has been in years after not having to worry about back surgery or treatment for a thumb injury in the offseason. he is anxious to get to spring training next month."that second kid is a game-changer. we're going on four or five hours of sleep most nights, but two hours at a time tops so that aspect of it has been fun but challenging," braun said sunday at the "brewers on deck" winter fan event.

twins, may both hope his relief days behind him


in retrospect, trevor may made a critical mistake a couple of years ago, one his career hasn’t recovered from yet:he pitched too well.“we were in a pennant race, and i was excited to do whatever we needed to try to win it,” may said of his midseason switch to the twins bullpen in 2015. “i still feel that way. but it might not have been the best thing for me in the big picture.”that’s because, as brilliant as the righthander pitched in relief that year — a 3.15 era in 34 mostly high-pressure innings, plus 39 strikeouts and only eight walks — may now suspects that changing roles might have been detrimental to his health. not to mention his career.may approaches spring training, his fifth big-league p, with roughly the same uncertainty as a year ago. healthy again after an injury-filled 2016,






national signing day: colorado's stock rises


with national signing day coming up wednesday, colorado’s stake in college athletics keeps getting higher and higher.the denver metro area in particular — where recruiters have long dogged the lack of elite division i players — has seen an increase in talent across the board, with powerhouse athletic schools valor christian, cherry creek and regis jesuit each having more than ten division i commits in the cl of 2017.behind that upward trend are a number of factors. for one, this place is a boomtown. colorado was the second-fastest growing state between 2014 and 2015, meaning more kids, a bigger pool of athletes and thus more talent. the explosion of the private training business in the last five years hasn’t hurt either, and plenty of athletes and their families are learning to leverage th
