The New York Giants were the only NFL team to open its weight room to players Tuesday, the day after Judge Susan Richard Nelson ordered the NFL Lockout lifted.

The Yankees dropped their second straight game to the Chicago White Sox Tuesday -- the same White Sox team that had lost 10 of 11 before the series with the Yankees started.

He made back-to-back spectacular catches in the ninth inning to end the game when the Yankees had the tying and winning runs on base.
