Are Mean Soccer Girls Unacceptable or are We All Just Overreacting?

As soon as I saw the Elizabeth Lambert video I knew that I would be writing about her this week. Elizabeth is the "mean girl" soccer player that was suspended for rough play this week. She is the girl who was caught on video punching another player in the back and pulling hair.If you watch this video it looks terrible....more

I love LSU...GEAUX TIGERS!

Alright. I don't know if you are a football fan, but basically, if you didn't watch the LSU v FLA game tonight, you must live under a rock. FYI, about 34% of Americans claim football as their favorite sport (http://pewresearch.org/pubs/315/americans-to-rest-of-world-soccer-not-re...). Anyways, I refuse to be a fair-weather fan so, even though the Gators beat my Tigers 13-3, I still love the LSU Tigers. LSU started the game really strong, pumped and positive; however, did not end quite as passionate. They put up a great fight but the game is not over....more

Bowl Games or Playoffs? Where do You Stand on the BCS?

Every sports fan knows that late December brings more that just the holidays. That's right. It is Bowl Game season. I get a little bit weird about the bowl games. I love watching sports anyway, but 34 games in 19 days is like a football bender every year. It is almost as awesome as March Madness. ...more

The Recession is Killing Sports - On All Levels

This recession is hurting sports on almost every level. We already know that community sports programs lose donations at an alarming rate when things get tight. As parents get desperate to keep their homes little league sports and other extra-curricular activities don't seem so important anymore. Even the public school systems are in big trouble financially. San Jose's East Side Union High School District has proposed a budget that cuts out all athletic programs to save money. ...more
