For the past several weeks I have seen a multitude of stories from the wild world of sport that have struck me as something about which I wanted to write and set my brain whirring.
Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys are what is wrong with America. The Greg Hardy situation is unprecedented territory even for Jerry Jones. It is symptomatic of how we collectively as a country have placed a higher value on winning and profit than on decency and morals.
Imagine now if Jerry Jones had turned in the slip of paper for the 16th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft with Johnny Manziel instead of Zack Martin. The Cowboys have depth on their offensive line, something they obviously don't have at quarterback.
The Declaration of Sentiments is the document signed in 1984 after the first women's rights convention, the Seneca Falls Convention. The document, which can be found here, is worded much like the Constitution, but instead of outlining the rights of "man" it outlines the rights of women.
Even after getting sacked five times, Tom Brady is a determined quarterback whose only end goal is getting the win. That's the mantra this season for a player that is hell-bent on proving to the world that he is deserving of his four championship rings, and on his way to getting one more.
Charlotte Jones Anderson, Dallas Cowboys Chief Brand Officer, oversees all strategies and applications surrounding the team's brand as it is presented...
You've probably heard of United Way. In fact, most people in the U.S. are aware of United Way's work. And when you think of them, "cutting edge" may not be the first phrase that comes to mind.
This week the sun shines a little bit brighter, food tastes just a little bit better, and a stranger's scowl during the morning commute seems just a little bit less menacing. The world is a happier place this week, as the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated from the NFL playoffs.
The New England Patriots became the first team in playoff history to rally twice from two separate 14-point deficits to defeat the Baltimore Ravens Saturday evening.
We should not disparage what was a quality season for the Cowboys -- including just their second playoff win in six years -- but it's hard not to ask, "What if?"
I never thought I'd say it, but despite looking like a stuffed potato in a Cowboys aluminum foil jacket, Chris Christie is not only a man of principal, he's a man of our time.
While this breakup is going to be a difficult journey, and while I still care for and love my ex-boyfriend, the best part is that, now, I have all the time in the world to myself. I'm free of wanting. And I'm free of waiting.
The Carolina defense forced three turnovers and held Arizona to 78 total yards of offense, an NFL postseason record, in the franchise's first postseason victory in nine years.
Unlike every other professional sport in North America, pro football does not provide full-time employment to its officials. As a result, it does not hold referees to the same standard of excellence found in other sports. For example, even if an official has a pattern of making inaccurate calls in game after game, he still won't be demoted. In fact, he can actually be promoted to a postseason opportunity because there is no threat of unemployment. In other words: A player can make one poor play and get cut, but a referee can make the same mistake over and over and be rewarded.
Tony Romo is not going to win the NFL MVP this season, that much is clear. There are too many other great quarterbacks having monstrous seasons: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck, to name a few. And his teammate in the Dallas Cowboys backfield, running back DeMarco Murray, is firmly in the conversation as well. But at 34 years young, Romo, fresh off his second serious back surgery, is enjoying the best season of his illustrious (if highly criticized) career, and he has most definitely earned the right to be at least in the conversation about MVPs and elite quarterbacks.
The answer is unknown, but the question looms large, and it is currently multiple choice. Who will quarterback Chip Kelly's offense in 2015? Whether or not the answer turns out to be an elite one may very well dictate how long, and how far, the Chip Kelly Era goes.
