The NCAA preaches ethics to its athletes because they are sending the message that the sport you play is greater than any individual, and that we are expected to maintain integrity for the game.
The Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings opened the playoffs with a 2-1 overtime loss to St. Louis. Chicago and Anaheim came up winners on opening night.
In applying unjust enrichment a court considers the entire circumstances of a situation with an eye to fairness and the prevention of inappropriate conduct. Courts assume broad authority to do justice and applying the doctrine of "unjust enrichment" is one of many ways that this goal is accomplished.
A frequent question I get is, "How's everyone at the Foundation doing?" The truth is, it's been rough. None of us anticipated the rapid and radical changes that are now the new normal. But we're dusting ourselves off and keeping the focus where it should be: helping people with cancer today.
So now where do we athletic wannabes and weekend warriors turn to find inspiration? The answer just might be found next door or across the street.
Just when you think competitive cycling has no redeeming qualities other than for perfecting PED tests, a glimpse of humanity appears on the horizon.
If we can take a step back for a moment away from our negative emotions toward Lance Armstrong, then perhaps we can see that he was on to something, regardless of where you think his intentions resided.
I am tired to the bone of the baseless and uninformed criticisms people continue to hurl toward the Livestrong Foundation, based on crimes Lance committed as a cyclist.

I used to think that Aaron was a pretty smart person. After all, they don't make you the High Priest of the whole Jewish people unless you are a pretty capable person. But now I believe he was an amateur -- at least at the art of making excuses. You can't compare him to Lance Armstrong.
We have a tradition of treating players like children, even while we pay them millions of dollars for their skills, perhaps because they make their living competing in games we played as kids.
What's bigger than doping, performance enhancing, or any of the allegations against Lance is what his foundation has done for cancer research.
What do Lance Armstrong, Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps and Bartolo Colon have in common? They've all allegedly had their blood composition modified, in ways legal or not.
It seems like an open season on liars these days, with so many of them shot down and exposed by the media -- and often by postings on the social media...
As we get older, it becomes clear how cheaters do, in fact, sometimes win. Quite often, they win big and fall to a horrible disgrace when the truth is revealed about their compromised victories.
Power shift. Boston College now rules the hockey roost in Beantown, not Boston University. B.C. won the Beanpot Tournament for the fourth straight year.
