Andy Roddick heads into retirement after losing in four sets in the quarterfinals to Juan Martin del Potro.
The New York Giants have a paper-thin secondary, the Dallas Cowboys have no healthy ball-catchers, while the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins have shiny new quarterbacks.
If I'm Team Obama, I'd change up the traditional nightly convention schedule this year and have Obama's name placed into nomination by Clinton on Tuesday night, thus ensuring the biggest possible TV audience for Bill's speech.
Last month we gave a Nameberry shout-out to the moms of best-named babies in the past year, so how could we not do the same thing for the dads on Father's Day?
A day at Texas Stadium is more than enough time for 19-year-old, Silver Star-winning Billy Lynn to see all that's wonderful and troubling about America.
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk time-warps back to the excesses of the Bush administration in following the titular protagonist, and the seven surviving members of Bravo Squad, for one afternoon as they receive a heroes' welcome during the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day football game.
