Minnesota Lynx guard Maya Moore has announced that she intends to step away from the court, and the WNBA, for 2019.
“My focus in 2019 will not be on professional basketball, but will instead be on the people in my family, as well as on investing my time in some ministry dreams that have been stirring in my heart for many years.
“I will certainly miss the day-to-day relationships with my teammates and basketball family this season, but my no for the 2019 pro season allows me to say yes to my family and faith family like I never have before.
Moore, 29, has played her entire career in Minnesota.
I’m sure this year will be hard in ways that I don’t even know yet, but it will also be rewarding in ways I’ve yet to see, too.”
Breanna Stewart Likely Out Next Season
The Seattle Storm will have to embark on the next WNBA season without superstar, and franchise cornerstone Breanna Stewart.
According to the Seattle Times, Stewart could miss the next season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon while playing for Russian team Dynamo Kursk in the EuroLeague title game on Sunday.
“I don’t think it’s a career-ending type of injury,” her father, Brian Stewart said, according to Syracuse.com. “But it’s certainly going to put her in the barn for a while.”
Alouettes Release Johnny Manziel
The Montreal Alouettes have released former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Apparently, Manziel violated his contract with the Alouettes, according to the team.
With the AAF in play, and the XFL arriving next season, it is likely that Manziel is looking to latch on with either of those two leagues as opposed to continuing to play in the CFL.
However, if Manziel is looking to draw significant interest his play in the CFL left much to be desired.
Manziel appeared in 8 games for Montreal during his tenure, throwing 5 touchdowns verse 7 interceptions, certainly disappointing numbers that won’t elicit much excitement.
Argonauts Sign Cory ‘Poop’ Johnson
Get ready for an endless amount of toilet jokes and bathroom humor because the Toronto Argonauts have signed defensive tackle Cory ‘Poop’ Johnson, according to an official team announcement.
Johnson, 26, has played 25 games over two seasons for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after trying to latch on to NFL teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Falcons.
Toronto has been revamping their defensive line and Johnson is another addition that they hope will aid them in their efforts.
