The Irish and the Italians were both large Catholic immigrant groups. And in my parents' case, they also had ten children of their own! Pete called Lucy "Red" which never made sense to us kids since our mother was a blonde. Ah, but Lucy had been a stunning redhead when Pete met her! Lucy called Pete "Barney." Something to do with Barney Google apparently.
Long before their athletic purists were wall to wall in our society, the interest around knowing the origins and the daily routines of our favorite sp...

Linda Cohn proved quite a while ago that some girls just wanna talk sports. She's the first ESPN anchor of any gender to reach the 5,000 mark -- and at 56, she says she hasn't thought about heading to the bench any time soon.
Mr. Malone, are you the mailman who wants to help deliver the news that some sanity needs to be injected into our gun culture? Or are you the gunman whose silence helps perpetuate the killing? The shot clock's running.
I heard about Timur while listening to Max & Marcellus on ESPN last night. They were talking about this goat and tiger at a wildlife park across the world. The tiger typically ate goats and rabbits, but in November, the park staff served up Timur for lunch and instead of the eating him, the tiger made friends.
One Friday afternoon in Princeton, I ran into a young man working to recruit high schoolers to Princeton Football. Brad Baker is the Assistant Director of Football Operations for the Tigers. After talking for a while, it was easy to see the connections between football and entrepreneurship.
Usually, TV changes slowly. Distribution contracts are long. Rapid change is rare. But in 2015 something unusual happened, and 2016 will be a much better year for TV viewers as a result.
I was puzzled by the Marmot Boca Raton Bowl until I learned that a Marmot is a large squirrel or rodent. It may seem odd that a rodent, other than the head guy at Disney, would be sponsoring a bowl game. However Boca Raton means Mouth of the Rat and so in the end it all makes sense.

I am not much of a couch potato, not only because my wife won't let me eat potatoes on the couch while watching TV, but because I prefer to drink beer in the lounge chair.
It was a quarter to six on a Monday morning when we met on 395 Hudson Street. For such a high profile radio personality, he was cool and collected. Thoughtful, witty and poised. Sporting a pair of Levi's, red and white Nikes and a matching Mitchell and Ness sweater, he wasn't dressed like how I'd imagined him to be.
At age 56, I get to be a rock star. In an athletic setting. Surrounded by some of the fittest and most motivated people I have ever met. All I have to do is keep showing up and let them watch me go at CrossFit with complete abandon. I have a new set of friends and admirers.
Two years ago, then-CNN reporter Peter Hamby lamented the negative effect he believed Twitter and other social media were having on presidential campaign coverage.
Forty-eight years ago, Bill MacPhail, then in charge of sports at CBS, signed a deal with the US Tennis Open to carry its tennis matches, men's and women's, on the CBS network. That deal died last year and in 2015 you'll have to watch them on ESPN.
