Conor McGregor was in a mood

Conor McGregor was arrested Thursday after he threw a dolly into a bus that was carrying several UFC fighters and staffers. Dana White was livid with McGregor and thinks he could serve jail time. I predict McGregor will be part of WrestleMania at this time next year.

Masters Roundup

The first round of the Masters is in the books and Michael Rosenberg has a good column from Augusta. In other news: Tiger Woods shot a one-over 73 in his return to the Masters … A shuttle bus carrying fans to the course overturned and the driver was charged with DUI … Sergio Garcia put five straight shots in the water … Louis Oosthuizen had the putt of the day … As usual, John Daly set up shop at a nearby Hooters parking lot.

That’s it for me

In case you missed yesterday’s big announcement, this will be my final Hot Clicks. I’m handing the keys to Dan Gartland, starting Monday. I wanted to thank you again for all your support and the nice emails/tweets I received yesterday. It meant a lot. I’d like to say something more eloquent here but I am still feeling the effects of last night’s going-away party. In conclusion, thanks for reading and making me part of your daily routine.

Lovely Lady of the Day

I made Kate Bock my first LLOD back in October 2013, so it only makes sense to feature her on my final day. I texted Kate about this accomplishment and she said, “Honored to be the first and last Lovely Lady of the Day by Andy Gray. So sad to see you go and wishing you the best.” Kate is the best.

Hamilton unhappy with Mercedes’ ‘double bogey’ display

Lewis Hamilton has said a “double bogey” performance by his Mercedes team denied him the chance to wrap up his fifth world championship at the US Grand Prix.

His title coronation will now have to wait at least a week – in Mexico – after he finished only third, with Kimi Raikkonen claiming his first victory in more than five years following a dramatic race here in Austin, Texas.

The British driver was handed the championship initiative when Sebastian Vettel spun on the opening lap, his eighth mistake of the season, after he banged wheels with Daniel Ricciardo, and dropped down the order.

Hamilton was second, after losing the lead to Raikkonen at the start, but seemingly had the speed to beat the veteran Finn in a straight shoot-out.

Yet the Englishman lost track position when Mercedes moved him onto a different tyre strategy, bringing him in on lap 11, while his rivals remained on track.

His rubber would not last the course, and after emerging from the pits for a second time, 12 seconds behind Raikkonen, and 10 down on Max Verstappen, who finished second after starting a lowly 18th, his thrill-a-minute charge ran out of steam.

“We just made it so hard for ourselves today,” Hamilton said. “I am not sure about the reasoning for the early stop. It was a difficult day and not our best.

“I didn’t really have any problems but collectively as a team we didn’t perform that great which is not something we usually do.

0010df18-614

“The decision to come in was a bit of a surprise, but you can’t always get it right. We will go back to the drawing board and regroup. This was an over-par display for us. This was a double bogey.”

Despite Hamilton’s failure to win, he extended his lead over the faltering Vettel to 70 points with just 75 remaining. He needs only to finish seventh in Mexico to join Juan Manuel Fangio on a quintet of titles.

At first, Mercedes’ decision to bring him in for an early stop looked an inspired one, but it soon emerged that he would need to come in again.

When he left the pits for a second time, the message from his engineer, Pete Bonnington, was clear. “We just need everything now,” Hamilton was told.

The rampant Briton did precisely that as he delivered fastest lap after fastest lap to reel in both leader Raikkonen and Verstappen. With eight laps to go, the top three were covered by a little more than two seconds.

At that stage, with Vettel only in fifth, second would have been enough for Hamilton to take the championship and he went wheel-to-wheel with Verstappen in a gripping finale.

But the Dutchman held firm, and Hamilton also ran off the road. That was that. A recovering Vettel then fought his way past Valtteri Bottas, meaning only a win would have been enough for Hamilton to take the spoils in Austin.

0010df19-614

Vettel, starting in fifth after he was penalised for failing to slow under red flags in practice, was out of contention for the win after just 13 corners.

He roared past Ricciardo on the back straight, only then to go too deep on his brakes at Turn 12, and lose the position.

In a desperate attempt to get back past the Australian at the right-handed ensuing corner, they touched and Vettel spun round in a plume of tyre smoke, dropping to 15th.

“I have mixed emotions,” Vettel said. “I’m really happy for Kimi, but not happy with my race.”
Raikkonen, who turned 39 last Wednesday, becomes the sport’s oldest winner since Nigel Mansell in 1994.

“It’s been a great weekend,” the Finn, who is leaving Ferrari at the end of the year, said. “It’s been a long time but here we are.”

Kompany insists there was no malice in Lennon tackle

Vincent Kompany insists there was nothing malicious in his controversial challenge on Aaron Lennon in Manchester City’s defeat of Burnley on Saturday.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche felt the City captain should have been sent off for his high challenge on Lennon in the first minute at the Etihad Stadium.

Lennon was able to play on after treatment but Dyche also revealed that the Clarets winger needed two stitches in a wound on his thigh.

Kompany said: “It certainly wasn’t on purpose. It’s happening a bit blindside. I think I got my studs on his leg but it’s (going for) the ball. I think I got it and luckily he wasn’t injured. That’s the main thing.”

City took advantage of the reprieve to win 5-0 and maintain their pace at the top of the Premier League.
With just nine games played, City have already scored 23 goals and conceded just three.

Kompany feels the side have improved at both ends of the field since last season – even though last term saw the club win the title with a record-breaking 100 points and 106 goals.

The Belgium defender said: “We work hard, try to improve everything. You might look at the five goals and say, ‘How good is the attack’? That’s a mistake, it’s the team who build it up from the back.

0010df16-614Sergio Aguero along with Vincent Kompany

“And if you look at the fact we didn’t concede and say, ‘How good is the defence?’ that’s a mistake too. The strikers press from the front and make sure we recover the ball fast so we don’t concede too many chances.

“That’s what we’ve worked on, making sure the team can play both sides of the game.”

With Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane on target, Saturday proved a difficult afternoon for Burnley’s former City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

Hart, who won two titles with City, was making his first appearance at the ground since leaving the club in the summer.

Kompany said: “He was paramount to his team, he made some incredible saves on the line.
“I can only reiterate how much of a legend he is for this club. It can’t be underestimated what an impact he’s had on helping to build this place and make it what it’s become today.”

City are back in action on Tuesday as they face Shakhtar Donetsk in Kharkiv in the Champions League.
John Stones filled in at right-back against Burnley in the absence of Kyle Walker and Danilo, who both suffered injuries on international duty, and may have to do so again.

Manager Pep Guardiola is hopeful Walker will recover from a groin problem in time but he is currently a doubt.
Guardiola said: “I don’t have many options in that position but I congratulated John in the locker room because I know it’s (not) his position and he did really well.”

Icardi strikes late to give Inter derby bragging rights

Mauro Icardi’s last-gasp header kept Inter Milan in third place in Serie A after they beat rivals AC Milan 1-0 at San Siro.

The Nerazzurri had to wait until the second minute of stoppage time to break the deadlock but Icardi’s close-range finish from Matias Vecino’s cross extended Inter’s winning league run to five games.

AC Milan started brightly, with Suso drilling wide from 25 yards early on and Hakan Calhanoglu volleying off target shortly afterwards.

Inter sprang into life when Ivan Perisic’s header forced Gianluigi Donnarumma into a save, and they almost took the lead after 34 minutes when Stefan de Vrij hooked an effort onto the post.

Vecino also had a fine chance to break the deadlock as the first half drew to a close, but he fired over from 10 yards when well placed.

Opportunities were few and far between in the second half, with Matteo Politano firing a volley over for the Nerazzurri on the hour mark.

Suso wasted AC Milan’s best chance in the 80th minute when he tamely shot at Samir Handanovic before Inter captain Icardi struck in added time.

Lazio also left it late but picked up their seventh win in nine league games with a 2-0 victory at Parma.

Ciro Immobile broke the deadlock with an 81st-minute penalty after Valon Berisha went down in the box, and Joaquin Correa sealed the three points in added time.

Chievo remain rock bottom as Josip Ilicic inspired Atalanta to a 5-1 victory with a hat-trick at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.

The hosts had Federico Barba sent off after 40 minutes but by that time Atalanta were already 2-0 up thanks to goals from Marten de Roon and Ilicic.

Slovenia star Ilicic went on to complete his treble with two goals in two minutes at the start of the second period.

Robin Gosens added a fifth for the visitors before Valter Birsa grabbed a consolation for Chievo with an 84th-minute penalty.

Daniel Ciofani’s double failed to inspire Frosinone to a much-needed victory as they were held to a 3-3 draw at home to Empoli.

Matias Silvestre’s own goal put the Giallazzurri in front but the centre-back atoned for his error by putting Empoli in front in the 48th minute after Miha Zajc had equalised.

Ciofani scored his first goal six minutes later and added his second from the spot just after the hour mark to leave his side on the brink of their first win of the campaign.

However, Moreno Longo’s side, who are second from bottom on two points, were denied in the 79th minute as Salih Ucan popped up with Empoli’s leveller.

Bologna and Torino were also involved in a high-scoring draw, with Arturo Calabresi completing the Rossoblu’s comeback.

Torino had taken a two-goal lead inside 54 minutes thanks to efforts from Iago Falque and Daniele Baselli.

Federico Santander brought Bologna back into the contest just before the hour mark and Calabresi rescued a point by smashing home with 13 minutes remaining.

Fiorentina were also forced to settle for a point after Leonardo Pavoletti cancelled out Jordan Veretout’s penalty to earn Cagliari a 1-1 draw

Champagne on ice for Hamilton as Kimi rolls back years

Lewis Hamilton came up short in his mission to win the Formula One world championship for a fifth time after he finished third at a thrilling US Grand Prix.

Hamilton appeared to be handed the title after Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel spun on the opening lap when he banged wheels with Daniel Ricciardo and dropped down the order.

But Hamilton lost track position when Mercedes elected to move him on to a two-stop tyre strategy, to take the chequered flag in third.

Kimi Raikkonen won the grand prix, his first victory in 113 races, ahead of Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, who started 18th.

Hamilton is now 70 points ahead of Vettel, who passed Valtteri Bottas to finish fourth in the closing stages, with 75 remaining.

The only lead driver on a two-stop tyre strategy here at the Circuit of the Americas, Hamilton emerged from the pits for a second time 12 seconds behind Raikkonen, and 10 seconds down on Verstappen, with 19 laps remaining.

“We just need everything now,” was the message from Hamilton’s race engineer, Pete Bonnington.

The rampant Briton did precisely that as he delivered fastest lap after fastest lap to reel in both the Ferrari and Red Bull cars. With eight laps to go, the top three were covered by a little more than two seconds.

Hamilton could smell championship glory, and went wheel-to-wheel with Verstappen in a dramatic finale, but the Dutchman held firm to retain the position.

At that stage, second would have been enough for Hamilton to take the championship, but a recovering Vettel fought his way past Bottas, meaning Hamilton would have then required to get past race winner, Raikkonen, too.

The championship battle will now go on to Mexico next Sunday with Hamilton needing to finish only seventh to join Juan Manuel Fangio on a quintet of titles.

“I thought we would have been able to do better today but it was great that we got to do some racing,” Hamilton said.

“I am not sure how the strategy ended up like that. Ferrari picked up their game, and we need to push hard at the next race.”

0010df08-614Lewis Hamilton was third

Hamilton started from pole, but lost the lead to Raikkonen on the long uphill race to the left-handed first corner.

Vettel, starting fifth after he was penalised for failing to slow under red flags in practice, was out of contention for the win after just 13 corners.

He roared past Ricciardo on the back straight, only to go too deep on his brakes, and lose the position.

In a desperate attempt to get back past at the right-handed turn 13, he collided with the Australian and spun round in a plume of tyre smoke, dropping to 15th.

Vettel’s error, his ninth of the year, and second of the weekend, looked to gift-wrap Hamilton the title.

But, on lap 11 and during a Virtual Safety Car period, Mercedes called Hamilton in for tyres, the only front-running driver to do so.

At first, it looked as though it may have been an inspired decision, but it backfired when Hamilton’s rubber ran out of life and he had to stop again.

That dropped him to fourth, and while team-mate Bottas was ordered out of his way, there was nothing Hamilton could do about either Verstappen or Raikkonen.

Raikkonen, who turned 39 last Wednesday, becomes the sport’s eldest winner since Nigel Mansell in 1994.
Raikkonen’s last victory was way back in Melbourne, Australia for Lotus more than five years ago.

“It’s been a great weekend, the Finn said. “It’s been a long time but here we are. It was a good battle and that’s what we all want, the drivers, and the people here.”

Five-time All-Ireland winner Herity to manage Kildare

Five-time All-Ireland winner David Herity has been appointed the new manager of the Kildare hurlers.

The former Kilkenny goalkeeper steps into the role, having previously managed the Dublin senior camogie team since 2016.

Herity guided Dublin to a first All-Ireland semi-final appearance since 1990 in 2017, but was unable to build on that progress this year as they bowed out of the All-Ireland championship at the quarter-final stage at the hands of Galway.

Herity takes over from Joe Quaid in Kildare, and he will guide a team who won the Christy Ring Cup this year after defeating London in Croke Park.

They subsequently took on Antrim in a play-off for the chance to book their place in the Joe McDonagh Cup for 2019, but the Lilywhites lost out heavily to their Ulster opponents.
