FILE - In this May 16, 2012, file photo, the Facebook logo is displayed on an iPad in Philadelphia. Silicon Valley is a uniquely American creation, the product of an entrepreneurial spirit and no-holds-barred capitalism that now drives many aspects of modern life.

A social media campaign to persuade former star midfielder Aboutrika to come out of retirement - and exile - to join Egypt’s World Cup squad in Russia has stirred a storm in a country where politics and football often mix.

There is bad blood once again in the NBA. No, it’s not just the Pistons-Bulls or Celtics-Lakers type of feuds. Sure, there’s Warriors-Cavs, Thunder-Warriors and Cavs-Celtics. But these days, it’s more individually driven _ thanks in large part to social media. There’s Russ-KD, LeBron-Kyrie, and even a Whiteside-Embiid can get in on the action. The back-and-forth makes for matchups worth circling on the calendar _ beginning Tuesday night with Boston-Cleveland. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
