I was propped up in the Emergency Room at Long Island College Hospital, my right leg swollen, a bull's eye forming underneath my calf from a tick bite when I decided to audition for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. As a 52-year-old mother of two, I figured my odds of making the team were good and that this mid-life crisis was going to be easier than my first.
Another fall weekend means more opportunities NOT to leave that couch of yours. With Thanksgiving getting closer and your fantasy football teams in mid-season form, let's dive into the NFL. But don't forget about the college kids! And I'm not just talking about the gridiron. Friday night ESPN3 will air the beginning of the Andrew Wiggins era at the University of Kansas.
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant's petulant, child-like antics during Sunday's 31-30 loss to Detroit showed that this is not a guy who gets it.
Although Romo has yet to deliver a world championship the idea that he isn't an "elite" quarterback is absurd!
"The girls rehearse five nights a week. Rehearsal starts at 7 and runs until 11, but many get to rehearsal at 5:30 because they are expected to learn 50 dances in eight weeks."
"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.
he Celebrity Bowling Classic has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help the NFL's charitable foundation contribute collectively (on behalf of its 32 member clubs) to charitable causes on a national level.
"Where did my Cowboy go?" What a great, great question. It's so layered, penetrating and surgically precise. It was asked by an old college friend o...
Once again the Dallas Cowboys will not be in the big dance. When will the Cowboys -- regarded every year as the most talented team in the NFL -- finally get it together and make a run deep into the playoffs?
This NFC East "Championship Game" on Sunday will decide the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs. As one of just two games in which both teams have playoff implications riding on the outcome (Green Bay at Minnesota is the other), this has all the makings of a classic shootout.
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.
