Woman, 3 Children Dead In Brooklyn House Fire
One witness told the media: "The fire was like five feet on top of the house, that big was the fire". The father, his teenage son and a cousin were critically injured, but survived.

"We are excited and optimistic about the future of soccer in Nashville".

Businessman Dan Gilbert, Pistons Vice Chairman Arn Tellem, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, top Gilbert aide Matt Cullen, Detroit Lions President Rod Wood, and Matt Rossetti, president of Detroit-based architects Rossetti Inc. spearheaded Detroit's pitch to bring an MLS team to Ford Field. Reports out of Cincinnati and from the Mercury News in California point to Cincinnati as the next to win an expansion team.

Billy Joe Saunders retains WBO belt after beating David Lemieux in Canada
On paper, Saunders faces a hard task against a man who is on a four-fight winning streak since losing to Gennady Golovkin in 2015. But Saunders was excellent on the back foot and timed his footwork to perfection to make Lemieux continually miss.

The other finalists are Nashville, Cincinnati and Sacramento.

A 27,500-seat stadium costing $275 million will be built by the team and city at the fairgrounds, which is a few miles from downtown, and the club may play at a temporary location like Vanderbilt University until it is completed, the Post reported.

It's anticipated to be a formal MLS expansion team announcement for Nashville. It shouldn't be. Both Sacramento and Cincinnati deserve to join Nashville in the MLS party. Now.
