"I don't understand. All those football players are called Redskins, and people love to watch them play and buy T-shirts with their names on them."
When an NFL quarterbacks throws for over 500 yards, five touchdowns and nearly sets the league's all-time single-game record for passing, he deserves to win. For Tony Romo, however, Sunday's tilt against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos did not end that way.
It was not through a charity act on the part of the Giants that gave me the opportunity to play football again -- I regained my spot on the team through months of hard work.
It feels dumb saying I didn't realize how unbelievably offensive the name "Redskins" actually is until now, but it's true. Prior to the recent media attention that's arisen the thought had never once crossed my mind.
I recently sat down with Terrell Owens, eight years after our 2005 interview that resulted in his suspension from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Despite sports being an entertainment industry, being a fan is not about maximizing pleasure. In order to earn the right to celebrate victory, you must experience the agony of defeat.

Um, so wow. If the Steelers hadn't lost against the Cowboys 27-24 in OT in such a dramatic fashion, I'd say that was probably one of the best games I've seen so far in the regular season.
Juan Manuel Marquez knocked out Manny Pacquiao in the sixth round Saturday night in their fourth fight. Bob Arum's first word... rematch!
Cincinnati is the better team, is playing at home and, ultimately has more riding on this game. According to 50,000 games played (simulated) by the Predictalator, the Bengals win over the Cowboys 64.2 percent of the time and by an average score of 28-22.
Americans may best grasp ideas that emerge from something they really care about. Public policy, economic power and social compact morality? Meh, not so much. But pro football? Now there's something about which Americans care passionately.
