Mom, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be NFL Players

Yes, I am a major sports fan; yes, I bleed Cardinal and Gold and attended almost every home football game for the USC Trojans since the late 1960s; yes, I spend my weekends in the fall watching college football on Saturday and professional football on Sunday.  But, would I let my son play football?  No!  And, I urge all sensible parents to follow my lead.  Goodness knows, there’s plenty of information out there to support my position....more

The Olympics When Your National Team Sucks

Up until that point, I had never encountered pride and loyalty in such real, palpable form. Their team's victory transformed everyone in that bar, without displacing anything at all. I have never felt more envious than I did then, looking around me at all the people who had followed their team through the ups and downs to see them take down their rival. There was laughing and hugging and kissing like these fans were survivors of an impossible struggle who'd come out triumphant. I suppose that in a sense, they were. ...more

The 2012 NFL Draft: Notes for the Busy Fan

This is the NFL Draft Guide for those of us who don’t have the dubious luxury of watching decades of tape on college football players leading up to the NFL’s Annual Player Selection Meeting.We have lives that prevent us from indulging in the apparently endless hours of speculation on team needs, Wonderlic scores, shuttle times and the detailed physical measurements of 22-year-old men. Okay, maybe we speculate a little on that last one. You know, when passing by the local fire station....more

Saints They Ain't

Did you hear about the New Orleans Saints?  The NFL reports that defensive players for the New Orleans Saints have been receiving bounties for hurting players on the opposing team.  At first, I didn’t want to believe this story but when the Saints’ Defensive Coach Gregg Williams admitted it was true, I became incredulous.  What the hell was going on in that locker room?  Was a...more
That is horrible! I only read the opening but it just makes me sick!more

What Did Tim Ever Do To You?

What is it about Tim Tebow?  People seem to either love him or hate him.  Me? I can't call myself a Tebow fan. I'm certainly not a University of Florida fan. Or a Denver Broncos fan. I don't think he's all that impressive as a quarterback....more

Business vs. Loyalty - What Should the Colts Do?

Now that the NFL season has officially come to an end and the Playoff Season has begun, the airwaves are blowing up over the Indianapolis Colts.  The team, which has suffered through the season without its stalwart, award-winning, MVP QB1, Peyton Manning, has been awarded the Number 1 draft pick in this upcoming spring’s NFL draft.  They earned this distinction by winning only two of their 16 games.  It’s true, the team has suffered through a lifetime of embarrassments in this one season and it looks like more will come....more

“Suck For Luck”…Well, It Sucks

Have you heard of this?  Some NFL teams are supposedly losing games on purpose so they can have first crack at Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, the consensus Number 1 pick in next spring’s draft.  I hate everything about this – the expression, the theory and especially the idea that any professional team could actually set out to intentionally lose a game.  As the theory took root on sports broadcasts across the country, it had me wondering just how easy it would be to lose a game on purpose.  I’ve never been a competitive athlete but I raised one and watched him compet...more

But why not take a minute everydayto realize how thankful you really are, how many wonderful elements you have in your life?What am I thankful for?...more
