BEREA — Behind his stylish sunglasses, Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine stayed cool and showed little outward emotion on a day he had been looking forward to for months.

On the inside, Pettine was glowing.

The Browns practiced in full pads. Real football — at last.

 
Judge OKs record-setting $2B sale of Clippers

LOS ANGELES — Embattled Los Angeles Clippers' owner Donald Sterling lost his attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

In allowing the deal to go forward, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided Monday with Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks.

Shelly Sterling sought the probate judge's approval to ink the deal after taking over the family trust that owns the team because doctors found Donald Sterling had signs of Alzheimer's disease and couldn't manage his affairs.

Strahan goes from DE to TV to HOF

Michael Strahan had one objective in mind when he came to the New York Giants as a second-round draft pick in 1993 out of Texas Southern.

“My goal when I first started was just to make a little money so I didn’t have to move back to my parents’ house,” he says. “I didn’t want to disappoint my parents. So that was my goal, to kind of just make my parents proud, make them happy, play as hard and just do the best I could do.”

The best he could do was pretty good: Strahan will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

Strahan was the leader of a defense that stunned the undefeated Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl. He holds the single-season mark for sacks with 22 1/2 in 2001 — yeah, we know all about Brett Favre’s “dive” for the record-setting sack. He retired with 141 1/2 sacks, seven Pro Bowl appearances and four All-Pro team selections.

And while he was a game-changer on the field, he was making his mark elsewhere with his gregarious personality, gap-toothed smile and willingness to step out of his comfort zone. He became a regular in commercials, most notably for Subway.

Strahan easily moved from the field to the television studio after retirement and now is co-host of the “Live! With Kelly and Michael” morning show.

But he’s going into the Canton shrine because of his on-field achievements in 15 seasons, all with the Giants.

 
Langer wins Senior British Open by record 13 shots

BRIDGEND, Wales — Bernhard Langer ran away with the Senior British Open on Sunday for his fourth senior major title, finishing a Champions Tour-record 13 strokes ahead of Scotland’s Colin Montgomerie.

The 56-year-old German closed with a 4-under 67 at sunny and breezy Royal Porthcawl to finish at 18-under 266. He opened with rounds of 65, 66 and 68.

“The golf course is unbelievably tough,” Langer said. “To have this weather for four days is unreal, it’s like playing in Florida with a bit of wind. The secret was I didn’t make too many mistakes and my driver was very good and my long putting was excellent, although not quite today as I was lacking a little. Perhaps my lead was too big.”

Montgomerie, the winner of the previous two senior majors, finished with a 69.

“This was a brute of a golf course with no wind, never mind with the wind,” Montgomerie said. “But what I would like to say is that Bernhard Langer’s performance here is one of the golfing performances of all time. And I’d like to say, Rory McIlroy and his group of friends, bring it on here. … Remarkable, remarkable play and all credit to him.”

Langer broke the Champions Tour record for margin of victory of 12 set by Hale Irwin in the 1997 Senior PGA, and almost doubled Bob Charles’ tournament record of seven strokes set at Turnberry in 1989. Langer also matched the tournament record for relation to par set by Tom Watson at Turnberry in 2003.
