The NFL's history of protecting thugs and hiding brain injuries is inexcusable. But the real outrage is that taxpayers are funding the construction of coliseums so that bruisers can smash each other in the mouth and billionaires can get richer.
I've greatly enjoyed my time, but I no longer wish to put my body at risk for the sake of entertainment. I think about the rest of my life and I want to live it with much quality. And physically, I am grateful that I can walk away feeling as good as I did when I stepped into it.
A little more than two years ago, while sitting still on my couch in Pittsburgh, I saw something very clearly. Some people would call it a vision.
America's for-profit colleges are receiving as much as $33 billion in a single year from your tax money, and billions more from the pockets of students, a lot of whom are left deep in debt and jobless from their encounters with predatory schools.
Conclusion of the week: The 19-16 overtime win over Arizona was a very Buffalo-esque game and OTs still wreak havoc on my life.
As long as he keeps locking his prized stallion up in the stables, Andy Reid's offense is going to sputter, his quarterback is going to get hit, and his team is going to continue to suffer demoralizing laughingstock losses.
The Patriots were supposed to win this game. They beat every lowly opponent like a freshman from Dazed and Confused. So what happened against the Cardinals? It didn't make sense to me.

Sports fans are often hesitant to want to mix sports and politics. Problem is, sports team owners have no problem doing so. In fact, they have been doing so for decades, which is why sports leagues in America are legal monopolies.
I'll just come out and say it -- I think mostly 99 percent of those who actually care about the NFL thought the Steelers were going to win this one.
If you are single and you are not going out there and meeting people every single day, nobody is going to come and rescue you. No one is going to rescue you from your life.
It has always been tough to be an Arizona sports fan. We are a resilient bunch, coming back each season for more punishment as we watch the Cardinals...
Palin styled herself a Russian expert once she discovered she could see the country from her house. I can see a strip club from my house but that doesn't mean I can straddle a pole for money.
The Philadelphia Eagles are a hypocritical organization. For Andy Reid to publicly and emphatically state McNabb was his guy then to put him on the trading blocks shows no class whatsoever.
45 points, 2 defensive turnovers, and an explosive running game: I don't know about you Saints fans, but if that's what "rust" loo...
