Manchester United manager David Moyes pictured during the English Premier League match against Everton at Goodison Park in Liverpool on April 20, 2014Leading British bookmakers stopped taking bets on David Moyes being sacked as Manchester United manager Monday after several national newspapers said Moyes was about to be fired. Sky Bet cut their odds on Moyes leaving United before the end of May to 1/4 from 9/4 before suspending betting. Ladbrokes installed United great Ryan Giggs, currently a player/coach at Old Trafford, as the 5/1 favourite to replace Moyes before they too suspended betting on their "next manager to leave" market. Speculation about Moyes's future intensified following Sunday's 2-0 loss at Everton -- the Scot's former club -- which condemned reigning champions United to their 11th defeat of the season and meant they could not qualify for the Champions League.

Runners wait for the start gun at the beginning of the Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014 in Hopkington, MassachusettsTens of thousands of runners, cheered by a multitude of spectators, set off through the streets of Boston Monday to reclaim the world's oldest marathon from the fear left by last year's deadly twin bombing. More than 3,500 police, double the size of the force last year, and multiple government security agencies are keeping watch to prevent any replay of the ghastly carnage that devastated the race on April 15, 2013 when two explosive devices tore through the crowds at the finish line. This year we come back more and better than ever," said Amby Burfoot, the 1968 winner who is running again at age 67 after being kept from finishing the 2013 race because of the attack. "The people of Boston -- they will be there twice as many, twice as loud," he said.
