To commemorate the occasion, Kevin Costner returned to the Iowa farm where the movie was filmed for the first time in eight years, bringing three of his children along.
The generous folks from the New York Racing Association were kind enough to invite me to the Belmont Stakes last Saturday. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink, and you can lead me to free champagne and wonder what the heck you're going to serve the other guests.
Despite being the site of major trolley and subway lines, Kenmore Square has never really been a destination. Unless you count the punk scene it attracted in the 1980s, or the methadone hub it became in the '90s.

Over the past three seasons, no shortstop has hit more home runs than J.J. Hardy. In fact, the Baltimore Orioles' star has even slugged more dingers t...
Don't settle with just visiting one ballpark this baseball season, instead live out every baseball fan's dream and visit all 30 major league baseball stadiums! We've looked at two routes to do this: the cheapest route and the shortest route.
For Manny, it was home runs, RBIs, or he didn't seem to be interested. While Ramirez most likely won't push anyone's buttons about running hard on the base paths or not jogging out to their positions, he can teach them about the art of hitting.
