Their contrasting physiques suggested that Joshua should’ve been the clear favorite, but Ruiz was the superior athlete in the ring.

This specter has already affected the Celtics’ other potential moves, namely by keeping them on the...

The Paris Metro might be *too* efficient if you’re there for the World Cup

If you’re visiting Paris, be prepared to be 15 minutes early to everything.

PARIS, France — I used to have a problem with punctuality. Everything was always a race to be on time, usually ending with me at the entrance of my destination covered in sweat from sprinting the last five minutes.
