The third time’s a charm, right? Not for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on having the third back surgery of his career. In 2009 and 2013 Gronkowski had surgeries to repair herniated disks in his back and he had another procedure on Dec. 2. This surgery leaves Gronkowski out for the remainder of the Patriots’ season—a huge setback as the team, the top seed in the AFC, he...

There is no doubting the talent of the University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball program.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s hard to think of anything more American.

Beat the 5-10 Miami Dolphins in the final game of the regular season and clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs. Pretty easy, right? Apparently not for the Patriots.
