    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Try to get Paul Ryan to talk politics on Thursday, and youd get nowhere. Ask the speaker of the house about the Green Bay Packers, and he would gladly speak about his favorite football team.The U.S. representative from Wisconsin visited Packers training camp practice and afterward was invited by coach Mike McCarthy into the end-of-practice huddle, where he and his kids met quarterback Aaron Rodgers.Just sports questions, sports only, he said.?Hed rather talk about meeting Rodgers.That was something my kids will never forget for the rest of their lives, Ryan said during a short interview with reporters at practice. That was very cool. Hes my favorite player. Ive been watching this team all my life. To be a lifelong Packer fan to come out and actually watch the practice, see the Packers, this is a big moment.The Janesville, Wisconsin, native said he asked McCarthy for an injury report on receiver Jordy Nelson, who is on the physically unable to perform list after experiencing a hiccup with his left knee.I just want to make sure a hiccups a hiccup, Ryan said. I was asking about injuries, checking on the health of certain people. Just want to make sure of the status. I feel really good about this team. I mean this is a very deep team. The talent, the draft was good. I feel very excited about this team. We keep ourselves healthy, I feel like we can go all the way this year, and I dont just say that every year. I feel really good about our team this year.Ryan said even though hes used to giving speeches, he was nervous when McCarthy asked him to talk to the team.I just told them how much we love the Packers, how much we support them, he said. The community loves these guys, and its just great to be there, and I just closed with saying Go Pack.The only political talk came when the Republican was asked whether he would watch Hillary Clintons speech later that night at the Democratic National Convention .Of course I will, he said.

LAS VEGAS -- UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez had barely put on his new belt when he took a swing at Conor McGregor.Shortly after Alvarez won the 155-pound title with a dramatic first-round stoppage of?Rafael dos Anjos?on Thursday night, he?called out the popular Irish fighter and questioned his mixed martial arts abilities.Asked whether he would like to fight McGregor in the future, Alvarez praised his recent opponents, including Dos Anjos and former champion Anthony Pettis.I would ask [UFC president] Dana White, Please give me an easier fight, like Conor McGregor, Alvarez said. I deserve that. Ive been fighting the best guys, so I would like a gimme fight. So, Conor, Id more than welcome that.Alvarez later expounded on his opinions about McGregor, whose brash public persona and dramatic knockouts turned him into one of UFCs biggest stars in a remarkably short time. Alvarez shares many fighters belief that McGregors promotional skills far outstrip his fighting abilities, outside of his punching power against other 145-pounders.Look, theres a lot of guys in the UFC who are good at one thing, and tthey get matched up stylistically well, Alvarez said.dddddddddddd. They make their way to the top without ever going against the true best guys in the division. They sneak their way around them, and they live off perception, not what really is. [McGregor] is one of them. I think he can get found out. If he was ever to fight Rafael Dos Anjos or to fight myself, hed get found out very quickly.McGregor won the featherweight belt in December with an opening-minute knockout of longtime champion Jose Aldo, his fifth straight stoppage victory against increasingly impressive opposition. McGregor then lost a welterweight bout against Nate Diaz in March after Dos Anjos dropped out of their scheduled lightweight showdown with a foot injury.McGregors rematch with Diaz is the main event of UFC 202 in Las Vegas on Aug. 20.Alvarezs trash talk is infused with business savvy. McGregors recent opponents have received growing paychecks due largely to the Irish stars pay-per-view drawing power.
