In the South, college football reigns. And with a program as storied as that of the University of Tennessee's in Knoxville, football is second to nothing. And in the eyes of the fan base, second not even to the respect and safety of women.
Being a mom of a family is very similar to being the coach of a team. There's the draft, practices, disciplinary actions, incentive programs, public appearances, uniform issues, healing of hurt egos, celebration of successes, and the bye week. So let's break this down.
As a proud North Carolina liberal with a degree from the University of North Carolina, last week wasn't pleasant. I watched our Democratic senator l...
The collective, will, wisdom and "ownership" of the Jets nation has now clearly spoken. It is yelling: "Fire John Idzik." Woody Johnson, hope you are listening.
The Hurricanes have flown under the radar for most of the season in the relatively unheralded ACC. All three of their losses have come on the road to teams that have combined for just six losses on the season.
Whether it be as aggressive as football or as passive as chess, playing in the game of life can be challenging. It takes wit, focus, determination and perseverance to win the ultimate challenges that life presents.
I'm very worried about being a New York Jets fan. I'm not talking about the usual nonsense of what it is to be a Jets fan but, the usual nonsense of being a complete pessimist the day after the draft.
It's hard to watch your beloved football team play a primetime game against a long-standing rival when you know deep down in your heart before the first snap that they are probably going to lose. It's beyond demoralizing to be trailing 42-0 at halftime.
The incessant airing of Viagra's nauseating British-blonde-on-a-bed commercial during both this October's football games and throughout the baseball playoffs illustrates how tone-deaf the National Football League and Major League Baseball remain when it comes to truly embracing family viewers.
We will have to see how Judge Jones resolves the factual dispute, if in fact the news reports are correct that there was conflicting testimony. After receiving briefs from the parties, she may issue an award which may be followed some time later by a full opinion explaining her reasoning.
Why is it that blacks continue to trail behind whites in politics, business, sports, and just about everything else in America? Could it have anything to do with racism? Ben Stein says no.
Many sports fans fess up to enjoying football food more than the game. Problem is, typical fan fare like chips and dip, burgers and brats, pizza, wings and beer can easily add up to more than a day's worth of calories and several days' worth of saturated fat -- all before kick-off! Here are some of my favorite lighter football snacks so you don't end up feeling like a 300-pound lineman by the end of the season.
I want my son to enjoy watching the game. But only watching it. Because I don't plan to let him play. As the evidence of football's health risks grows, is there any parent left that will?
I would have to give the football/election thesis a passing grade, based on these few cases, regardless of whether you use my statewide speculations or the more precise county analysis of my bold political science friends.
Ben's mother had attempted to put him on a diet, at age 9. It seemed like the reasonable thing to do. It seemed like it would be easier to change he...
