Imagine if 18 time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps' mother never took him to swimming practice, or if three time Oscar winner Meryl Streep was told not to audition for the school play.
Thanks to the generosity of the many attendees, the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation -- Coach Coughlin's charitable organization which helps families financially, emotionally and in practical ways when a child is diagnosed with cancer -- reached its goal of raising $1.5 million.
NFL quarterbacks have arguably the most difficult job in all of professional sports. They live under a microscope and face constant scrutiny, yet fans seem to have zero sympathy and unlimited criticism for them.
One of the many great things about living in New York City is the abundance of sports teams. In every major sport, New York has not one, but at least two professional teams -- a luxury not afforded to smaller cities like Cleveland or even more cosmopolitan ones like Boston.

This Sunday, Manning returns to Lucas Oil, the Death Star, for the first time since he put on a Broncos uniform. Manning will play the Colts and have something to prove.
New York has neither a proven, long-term running back nor the shutdown defense it thought it had two years ago.

When the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens take on Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos on Sept. 5th, it will mark 214 days since the last pro football game.
It's incredible what obstacles people overcome on a daily basis. Dick Pomo has been golfing with his wife Sharon for 20 years. He has also been blind...
