Fire and Dynamo play to scoreless draw

HOUSTON -- The Houston Dynamo remained unbeaten at home with a 0-0 draw against the Chicago Fire on Tuesday night

The Dynamo (6-5-6) recorded two shots on goal and moved to 4-0-3 in their new downtown stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium. Houston played without star midfielder Geoff Cameron, who was a late scratch with a left hamstring injury.

Tally Hall stopped the Fire's lone shot on goal in the first half, and helped snap Chicago's season-high winning streak at three matches. Houston had more scoring chances in the game and missed an opportunity to pull within a single point of Chicago (8-5-4) in the Eastern Conference.

In the 76th minute, Brad Davis had a chance to win it for the Dynamo, but his shot from the left side of the box was blocked.

The Fire nearly opened the scoring in the 12th minute, but Hall stopped Marco Pappa's left-footed shot from just outside the box.

The Dynamo are 4-2-3 since losing back-to-back games on April 28 and May 9. That was Houston's only two-game losing streak of the season.

The Fire recorded their first draw since a scoreless tie against Real Salt Lake on May 9.

Blackhawks share condolences after passing of six-time All Star Bill White

Blackhawks share condolences after passing of six-time All Star Bill White

The Blackhawks shared their condolences after the passing of former defenseman Bill White on Monday.

"The Chicago Blackhawks organization extends its thoughts and heartfelt condolences to Bill White's family as we mourn his loss," the team's statement read. "He will be remembered as a leader, generous teammate and tough player to play against. His energetic style helped the Blackhawks see great success during his tenure with the team."

White spent seven seasons with the Blackhawks — part of a nine-year NHL career — scoring 30 goals and tallying 149 assists.

He appeared in six consecutive All-Star Games from 1969 to 1974 and helped the Blackhawks to the playoffs in all seven of his seasons in Chicago.

White also had a brief stint as the Blackhawks' head coach, manning the bench for the final 46 games of the 1976-77 season.

On the latest episode of 'Harbaugh Being Harbaugh,' Michigan football coach helps deliver a calf

Harbaugh gonna Harbaugh, guys. That's just how the Michigan football coach rolls.

You might remember that Jim Harbaugh has an endorsement deal with a milk brand — because of course he does — and stars in a commercial for fairlife milk in which he breaks down the tape of his wife, Sarah, pouring some fairlife milk for the couple's kids.

You can watch it right here. It's actually pretty funny.

Well, as part of Harbaugh's relationship with fairlife, he got to visit Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, a spot you know well if you've ever traveled down I-65 en route to Indianapolis.

While visiting the farm, Harbaugh got his hands dirty — or maybe not, he seems to be wearing gloves — while helping to deliver a calf.

Yeah, that's right. Jim Harbaugh helped deliver a calf.

This comes as little surprise to those who know Harbaugh's antics well. He's always up to something ridiculous, be it reciting lines from "Gladiator" in Rome, shouting for peanuts in the middle of a mall or starring in a Michigan-themed rap video.

While Harbaugh's known for asking his players, "Who's got it better than us?" he can definitely answer with confidence "Who has more fun than he does?"

Keep it coming, coach.
