It's back!

The Premiership, England's top flight soccer league, returned this weekend with upsets, last-minute goals and fans running onto the field to take shots at goal.

Last year's champions, Manchester City, open their campaign today against Newcastle United.

So if you caught soccer fever during the World Cup, wake up with your coffee and the Premiership one weekend morning or - better yet - catch a Major League Soccer game as the U.S.'s top league winds down its season.

This week, fans of Robin Williams decided to honor the comedian with an unusual tribute. They’ve signed a petition asking the creators of a new "Legends of Zelda" game to name a character “Robin” in honor of the actor.

Williams reportedly loved the Legends of Zelda video game so much he named his only daughter after the title character and the duo starred in a recent ad for Nintendo where they played games side by side.

Australian Nick Schaedel posted the petition soon after Williams’ death was announced and it has already garnered nearly 100,000 signatures.

“He won't get to play it, but he'll live on forever in a universe he always loved,” wrote Schaedel.

The Toronto Raptors are being fined $25,000 by the NBA for a comment that rapper Drake made about Kevin Durant at a recent concert, ESPN reports. The NBA reportedly deemed Drake’s comment a public recruiting pitch, which ESPN said is a violation of the NBA’s anti-tampering rules.

“Before we leave, I just want to show one of my brothers something,” ESPN reported Drake told the crowd. “You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what could happen.” The crowd reportedly then broke into wild applause and a “KD” chant.
