JPP’s fingers are intact despite early reports to the contrary, according to ESPN. He underwent tests on one finger for nerve damage, “and doctors believe there will be no permanent damage or disfigurement of his hands,” the network reported.
Images circulated on Twitter over the weekend of a U-Haul truck loaded with fireworks reportedly belonging to the two-time Pro Bowler. On Instagram, Pierre-Paul sang about “fireworks on the ground” while holding his son, with a U-Haul behind them.

It’s unclear whether Pierre-Paul is in danger of missing all or part of the 2015 season. Several reporters tweeted on Sunday that the injury isn’t believed to be career-threatening.
There’s been no word from the Giants, who have been waiting for the 26-year-old to sign his $14.8-million tender. JPP, seeking a new long-term deal, would become an unrestricted free agent if the team revokes his franchise tag. He had 12.5 sacks last season.

As tens of thousands flock to Pamplona for the annual running of the bulls, Miguel Ángel Rolland explains why he made his documentary Santa Fiesta
“It hurts me to say it but the Spanish are a savage, insensitive and ignorant people,” says Miguel Ángel Rolland. In his new documentary, the Spanish film-maker has chronicled some of the 16,000 religious festivals across Spain that he says involve the torture of animals.
Every year about 60,000 animals are killed during these festivals, often held in honour of a local saint or the Virgin Mary. Spanish identity is a local, rather than a national, affair and people are fiercely loyal to their town or village and the customs associated with it.

China will gradually increase government spending over the course of this year as planned to support its slowing economy, Chinese media quoted a vice finance minister as saying on Monday. Zhu Guangyao was quoted by the China Economic Weekly magazine as saying that China would “appropriately increase the size of its fiscal deficit” this year to 2.3 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), as announced by the government in March. China ran a fiscal deficit of 2.1 percent of GDP last year.
Carli Lloyd’s hat-trick and a goal from Lauren Holiday put the USA up 4-0 inside 16 minutes, before YukiOgimi and a Julie Johnston own goal gave Japan some hope, but Tobin Heath’s strike sealed the win for the USA.
The win is the United States’ third victory in the competition, following triumphs in 1991 and 1999.
For those who missed the action, here’s how to catch up on an outstanding World Cup final.
The final began at a frantic pace as the USA hit Japan for six—well, four—with Holiday scoring amid a 13-minute hat-trick for Lloyd.
Lloyd opened the scoring after just three minutes, latching on to Megan Rapinoe’s expertly taken corner to slot home in style.
The U.S. women’s national soccer team continued to show a ruthless edge in front of goal, as Lloyd pounced on a defensive mix-up to double their lead just two minutes later.
Holiday proved just as clinical after Azusa Iwashimizu’s disastrous attempt to head the ball clear fell perfectly for her on the volley, putting the Americans firmly in control.
On the 16th minute, Lloyd completed her hat-trick with a strike of incredible quality, lobbing the Japanese goalkeeper from the halfway line:
FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi believes the 32-year-old’s performance transcended football in the United States:
Per Alistair Magowan of BBC Sport, Lloyd could hardly believe what she’d done. She said:
I did it once in training but very rarely do you wind up and hit it like that. You train and train and train and I dreamed of scoring a shot like that. …
I’m just really proud of everyone. It’s a surreal moment, we made history.
Her trio of strikes put her level with tournament top scorer Celia Sasic on six goals, meaning they tie for the Golden Boot.
As Sports Illustrated‘s Grant Wahl notes, Lloyd also enjoyed another prestigious honour:
The Japanese were finally able to recover after finding themselves 4-0 down, and they found a glimmer of hope when Ogimi curled a lovely finish past Hope Solo:
The goal was the first the U.S. had conceded in the tournament since their opening match with Australia.
The Nadeshiko halved the deficit shortly after the break when a free-kick deflected off Johnston, but Japan’s hopes of a comeback were quickly quashed.
Just two minutes later, Heath took advantage of yet more sloppy play from Japan’s defence to complete the rout.
With the result assured, Jill Ellis allowed veterans Abby Wambach and Christie Rampone to enjoy appearances in what will be their final World Cup.
At the final whistle, it was time to party like it was 1999, and the moment was captured by the USWNT‘s official Twitter feed:
U.S. President Barack Obama led the praise and celebration on Twitter:
After remaining defensively solid throughout the tournament but struggling at times for fluency up front, the U.S. saved the best for last as they clicked all over the pitch and deservedly emerged triumphant.
Come the next World Cup, many of the USA’s key players will be on the wrong side of 30, so the challenge for Ellis will be to continue the development of the likes of Johnston and Morgan Brian, as well as integrating other young players over time.
Based on her outstanding management of the U.S. so far though, the USWNT has little to worry about going forward.
