  • Baseball Player Won't Move Without Dog

    Baseball players are known for switching loyalties as often as they switch teams, but despite getting traded from the Miami Marlins to the Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle will not be moving his family to Toronto.

    Buehrle may play there, but he won't call it home. Not without Slater, his American Staffordshire terrier, which is a breed of pit bull. Pitbulls are banned in the province of Ontario, which includes Toronto.

    Buehrle and his wife Jamie considered slipping the pooch - one of the four dogs - through a loophole by claiming Slater is a service dog, but that was abandoned.

  • Goal machine Messi leaves La Liga greats trailing

    By Iain Rogers MADRID (Reuters) - If anyone had suggested when a callow teenager called Lionel Messi netted his debut La Liga goal for Barcelona in May 2005 he would equal Telmo Zarra's Spanish top-flight scoring record within a decade they would have been dismissed. Yet that is what the pint-sized 27-year-old Argentine achieved when he scored from a free kick in the 21st minute of Saturday's game at home to Sevilla to match Zarra's haul of 251 goals over 15 seasons for Athletic Bilbao in the 1940s and 50s. ...
