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.

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.

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.
Here are 10 reasons it's great to be a man. First, there's the penis. We love him, dearly. We can't imagine like without him -- ever. He is usually the first thing we think about when we wake up, and often the last thing we think about before we fall asleep at night.
Sports have always attempted to be a safe haven from politics. This could explain why so many diverse people gravitate to sports. Athletic competitions around the world have often been the one place where race, religion, gender and political affiliation did not matter.
As the ESPYs approach, we remember longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott whom lost his private battle with cancer. A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Scott got his start at a few stations in the south, making stops in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
Just as we celebrate the athletes who score amazing goals and bring us fantastic finishes, it is equally important to celebrate the humanitarians who utilize the platform of sport to champion social issues and social change.
The greatest human athlete of our time told the world that she is transgender. It took her her entire life to harness enough strength, enough bravery, to stand up and say this. In my opinion, she's more than just a little bit of progress, and she deserves to be seen and heard.
