For the gay football player or coach in Atlanta this Labor Day weekend, the words of Cathy, diminishing him to second-class citizenship, will be ringing in his ear. On that day, he will become a walking billboard for a symbol of his own oppression.
Whether you're a beginner or advanced player the summer tennis camps/programs at the Drysdale Tennis School at Stratton Mountain Ski Resort in Vermont can help you hone your game -- and there are fringe benefits.
HuffPost Live launches tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. EST -- and we couldn't be more excited. Every new launch is like a birth, full of hope and uncertainty. And a baby's first words are always remembered. The opening lines spoken on MTV were, "Ladies and gentlemen, rock 'n' roll!" When Ted Turner announced CNN, he promised the network wouldn't "be signing off until the world ends." And ESPN kicked off with, "If you're a fan, what you'll see... may convince you you've gone to sports heaven." Now we're trying to decide what our baby's first words should be. And since HuffPost Live is designed to put the HuffPost community front and center in everything we do, we thought we'd open up the discussion to you. So what do you think our opening words should be? Leave your suggestions in the comments, then tune in tomorrow morning to see if we picked yours.
Reilly's implication that we want prisoners to continue to mete out street justice while locked up sends a mixed message of the worst kind. Let's not set these men up for failure by implying that violence is acceptable, expected, and that they're good for nothing else.
Sports were my first love affair. It was through them that I learned to set goals, chart progress and witness the rewards of ambition and perseverance. Title IX made this possible.
The logical question here is: Why won't entertainment companies just break free of the cable systems and distribute their premium content directly to consumers via the web and mobile devices?
Wieden and Kennedy and ESPN have given us an insight into the life of an average person with a legendary name. This approach personally made me ask, 'What if my name was Michael Jordan?'
In a recent article in the Murfreesboro Pulse shock jock and local conservative talk radio personality Phil Valentine ignorantly discussed the issue of the racist headline that showed up on ESPN about Jeremy Lin, a basketball player for the New York Knicks.
Here, though, is my question: would it be better for me to give up paying attention to sports beyond this Lent? Would I be a more spiritual person? A more productive minister?
Kremer projects Midwestern values of focusing on the team instead of the individual. He beats a cupcake team by fifty points, but praises the opponent's "hustle" or "fighting spirit." I've tried to get him to trash talk, but Carl is not going to let that happen.
When ESPN created an especially stupid and racially charged headline, it only took 36 hours for the fallout to begin. Thanks, in part, to the loud thunderstorm on social media.
James' vanity candidacy is a reminder that not all publicity is good publicity. James isn't the pretty girl in the bar. He's the guy who walks into a bar where all the women are friends with his ex.
It was all happening for Ricky Rubio in this game, thereby dispelling Bill Simmons' contention that Rubio has no game and Kahn has no team. Sorry, Bill. It kills me to say this but Ricky Rubio's got game and maybe David Kahn has a clue.
Creating a marketing deal in Hollywood (or with any entertainment or sports entity) might seem arduous, but it can be as simple as you make it. The f...
I'm amazed by the flack New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is getting. I'm especially astounded by the comments from those who should know their baseball history better.
After an exciting game between Notre Dame and Michigan, ESPN Sportscaster Erin Andrews got on a plane and headed to New York City where she spent th...
