Madison Bumgarner punctuated his World Series performance for the ages by pitching the San Francisco Giants to their third championship in five years with a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. I was just thinking about getting outs, getting outs, until I couldn't get them anymore and we needed someone else,'' Bumgarner said in a monotone that made it sound as though he was talking about batting practice. Bumgarner had retired 14 in a row when Alex Gordon sent a drive to center field. The pitcher pointed his glove in the air, thinking it could be the final out, but the ball fell in front of Gregor Blanco for a single.

Madison Bumgarner was limbering up at Kauffman Stadium this week, getting loose with his San Francisco teammates near the dugout, when Tim Hudson and Michael Morse sneaked up from behind and ruffled the pitcher's long, scraggly locks. They were about the only ones who could touch Bumgarner in this World Series. The 25-year-old Bumgarner capped off a most splendid October and earned MVP honors Wednesday night, pitching five scoreless innings of relief in Game 7 as the Giants held off the Kansas City Royals 3-2.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, seen here in Brussels on October 28, 2014, says the alliance "remains vigilant" over Russian military activity over EuropeNATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said Thursday that the transatlantic alliance remained vigilant after an increase in Russian military manoeuvres in European airspace. "NATO is strong, it remains vigilant," he said during a visit to Athens. Russian strategic bombers, fighters and tanker aircraft have been intercepted on Tuesday and Wednesday in what NATO said earlier was "unusual" activity. "This strength is our answer" to what NATO has termed large-scale Russian military manoeuvres over the Atlantic, Baltic, North and Black seas earlier this week, when they skirted NATO airspace.

Georgia was hoping to get Todd Gurley back on the field. Looks like the No. 9 Bulldogs will have to wait two more games. The NCAA announced Wednesday that Gurley, once a leading Heisman Trophy contender, must sit out until Nov. 15 for accepting more than $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items over a two-year period. Gurley already missed the Bulldogs' last two games, and the school had petitioned for him to be reinstated in time for Saturday's Cocktail Party rivalry against Florida.

If it's a question of tolerating pain, Tony Romo says he will play Sunday against Arizona - and history supports him on that point. He said Wednesday he doesn't know, which goes to owner Jerry Jones' point that it could be a game-time decision against the Cardinals. Romo said the injury that sidelined him for about a quarter before he returned late in regulation of Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to Washington was ''more than a contusion,'' referring to coach Jason Garrett's description. The latest injury isn't related to the herniated disk Romo played through without leaving the game in a come-from-behind win at Washington before surgery five days later last December.


On Politics: Obama, Christie and EbolaLakers' Randle has surgery, likely out for year (Yahoo Sports)
Somehow, Chris Christie has again managed to make himself the most talked-about Republican in the country on the eve of an election in which he isn't on the ballot.

Los Angeles Lakers rookie forward Julius Randle is expected to miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his broken right leg. The seventh overall pick out of Kentucky broke his leg in the fourth quarter of his NBA debut in Los Angeles' season-opening loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. Randle was strapped to a wheeled stretcher and taken off the Staples Center court after colliding with two Rockets and landing awkwardly with 6:46 to play. Before Wednesday's game at Phoenix, the Lakers announced that Randle's injury was just as serious as it appeared.

    Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

    Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

    Living Wages Are A Global Problem

    The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

    Ukraine: Not What It Seems

    After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

    In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

    In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

    Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

    The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
