Remember when Justin Bieber was that clean-cut mop-top who made the little girls scream with innocent first love? Fix that sweet image in your mind, 'cause we're about to go in the direction of "Bieber at a Brazilian bordello. " But first, we're hitting the bottle - or more accurately, the bottle was hitting the Biebs, causing him to exit the concert stage early Saturday night in Sao Paulo. Fans were left confused after a water bottle thrown at the stage connected with the singer's face, TMZ reported.

Anyone who has even a passing interest in mixed martial arts probably has an opinion on the Anderson Silva-Chris Weidman rematch set for Saturday night at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Can Weidman again knock out Silva, the 38-year-old former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight champion, who held the title for more than six years? Will Weidman decide this match on the canvas, after making Silva look so uncomfortable there in July? UFC President Dana White has kicked around the debate for quite a while, ever since watching Weidman's knockout punch and scheduling the rematch a week later.

One day after playing so poorly in the pro-am he didn't want to turn in his scorecard, Tom Weiskopf shot a six-under-par 66 Thursday for a one-stroke lead in the first round of the Senior Players Championship at Dearborn, Mich. Bob Charles, the first-round leader at last week's U.S. Senior Open, and Lee Trevino were at 67 in the last major of the year on the senior tour.

After losing six games in a row at home, including a late-inning blowout against Cincinnati the night before, the last thing the Padres needed was plane trouble on the way out of San Diego. Or extra innings Thursday night at Chicago. But that's the way things have been going lately for the Padres, whose flight was delayed for five hours because an inflatable slide on the plane malfunctioned.

The Angels dusted off the turntable Sunday and gave their broken record another spin, Zack Greinke serving as disc jockey for the latest in a string of shoddy starts by baseball's most underachieving rotation. Greinke, considered the piece that would elevate the Angels to World Series contenders when he was acquired from Milwaukee on July 27, was roughed up for six runs and seven hits in six innings of an 8-3 loss to Tampa Bay, the Rays completing a four-game sweep in Angel Stadium.

Jack Reilly, the former El Camino College coach who is now an offensive assistant with the San Diego Chargers, may have knocked starting linebacker Gary Plummer out of Sunday's season finale against the Denver Broncos. Plummer took an elbow to the ribs from Reilly Wednesday, missed Thursday's practice and is listed as questionable because of torn rib cartilage. "All year long when I rush the passer, I hit Jack Reilly instead of hitting the quarterback," said Plummer, the team's No. 2 tackler.

Pedro Martinez called it a bad day. "I wasn't consistent at all," he said after giving up three hits in seven innings Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays, 8-0, at Toronto. Martinez, who pitched a two-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles last week, improved to 6-1 with an American League-leading 1.01 earned-run average. He struck out six, walked two and hit two batters. "I was little bit erratic," he said. "I couldn't spot my fastball, and it would take off on me.

A day after he defended Geno Smith against criticism from the rookie quarterback's former West Virginia teammates, New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan had some criticism for Smith himself. Only it wasn't a personal attack like the ones from the Mountaineers who questioned their ex-quarterback's leadership abilities. Ryan was simply giving an honest assessment of Smith's performance at Jets practice Wednesday. “It was brutal," Ryan said . "It was Geno's worst day. " Ryan probably isn't going to get an argument from anyone, even Smith, who threw four interceptions, including three during 11-on-11 team drills.

NEW YORK - Barry Bonds was here. His is the name that evokes all that went right, and so very wrong, for baseball during the steroid era. His spirit was here Monday, the day before the All-Star game, when baseball's premier slugger declared Bonds' single-season-record 73 home runs null and void. "In my opinion, 61 is the record," Chris Davis said, "and I think most fans agree with me on that. " Roger Maris hit 61 in 1961. Bonds bettered that once, Mark McGwire twice, Sammy Sosa three times.

The Supreme Court struck a blow for consumers Monday in a closely watched patent case, ruling that manufacturers of brand-name drugs don't have the right to buy off generic-drug makers by giving them a share of their monopoly profits. The 5-3 ruling was messier than the elegantly simple results advocated by the Federal Trade Commission on the one side and the pharmaceutical industry on the other. But it should deter drug companies from holding off competitors by gouging consumers.

Midnight was fast approaching when Tom Wilhelmsen and his girlfriend stumbled into Venice. The backpackers were tired and hungry and, truth be told, a little smelly. This was another new city on a trip full of them. They found a cheap room in a seedy hotel, a couple of slices of pizza and a bottle of wine. Then they crashed. "And then we woke up on the canal," he said. "You put your head out the window and, sure enough, there are all the gondolas and the clothes drying, just like in all the pictures.

CHICAGO - If there was a bright note for the Kings on an otherwise rough Saturday at the United Center, it was the return of Jarret Stoll , who had missed more than two weeks with a concussion. Playing short shifts during a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, the veteran center contributed 15 minutes and won 53% of his draws in the faceoff circle, where his team had struggled. The game marked his first attempt at full contact since May 14, when he absorbed a high check that got San Jose Sharks left wing Raffi Torres suspended for the remainder of the second round.

The Dodgers started the day by placing Matt Kemp on the disabled list and shelving A.J. Ellis with a sore side amid growing concern over nerve problems in the pitching hand of Josh Beckett. Nowhere to go but up? Come on, these are your 2013 Dodgers. They went and lost to the Angels, 3-2, despite a nice start by Ted Lilly and because of a somewhat bizarre sixth inning that produced the winning run. BOX SCORE: Angels 3, Dodgers 2 The Dodgers actually jumped in front of the Angels with a run in the first inning after Carl Crawford led off the game with a triple into the right-field corner and scored on an Adrian Gonzalez sacrifice fly. The Angels tied the score in the second inning when Chris Iannetta had a run-scoring double and took the lead in the fourth when Howie Kendrick tripled and scored on Alberto Callaspo's single.

He spars in an almost eerie silence, no sound except for the shuffling of feet and the thud of gloves in the near-empty gym. There is no applause at the end of rounds, no bantering with the crowd, no mugging or winking. Ray Leonard is now content to save those for fight night. He is searching for something he has misplaced, and to do it properly Leonard knows he needs to concentrate. What Leonard is searching for, of course, is Sugar Ray.

The Titus Young story isn't funny anymore. Last week's news that the former Detroit Lions receiver was arrested twice in one day might have caused people to smirk or at least roll their eyes. On May 5, Young was booked on suspicion of DUI and then on suspicion of attempting to steal back his impounded car 15 hours later. Kind of amusing since neither alleged offense necessarily indicates a serious problem, but perhaps someone just having a really bad day (or a day of really bad decision making)

Brett Hundley was having a bad day during practice Thursday. His throws were off, some were short, some were high. No one was concerned. A big reason was Hundley's reaction to one bad play. He refused to yield the field to the next quarterback. “I love that about him,” Coach Jim Mora said. “As long as he is still doing what we're asking him to do, I love to see that fight in him.” There are areas where Hundley has changed. He is more savvy with one year as the Bruins' starter on his resume.
