Growing your mo is the best way to do that, and it's even better when star athletes like the NFL players below get involved. But man, these guys really take it to the next level.
Needless violence on and off the field should undermine the popularity of professional football. Sadly, that isn't the case. In fact, violence is accepted, even encouraged, by the National Football League because it sells.
I grew up in Western Pennsylvania -- the cradle of quarterbacks, Steeler Country, the home of those folks accused of "clinging to their guns and rel...
Is it time for Catholic fans to rethink their love of the game?" In a poll of U.S. Catholic readers -- who are not representative of Catholicism at large -- 70% "agree" that "Supporting the NFL is an ethical conflict of interest for Catholics."
Geno Smith was not the sole or even the primary cause for the Jets' loss to the Raiders. But he is also not a franchise QB and certainly not the future for the Jets. There is now serious cause for concern about how the rest of the season will play out.
Football provides an unmistakable opportunity to teach a captive audience of young people about character. It's a rare opening and we feel very strongly that it shouldn't be wasted. So we use the game as a hook to teach kids that strength of character is an essential ethic for a successful life.
And as we left the dazzling lights of the post-victory stadium at night and joined the line of families headed back across the state, exiting the small highway at their various towns, I could only hope that a little of this is in me.

Imagine now if Jerry Jones had turned in the slip of paper for the 16th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft with Johnny Manziel instead of Zack Martin. The Cowboys have depth on their offensive line, something they obviously don't have at quarterback.
The New York Jets were once again defeated by the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. This defeat really stings. But it is precisely at this low point that we should count our blessings and realize that after four long years, a playoff berth is eminently achievable, even likely.

Typically, when a woman is abused, her abuser tells her it's her fault that this is happening to her. He might tell her that she has been disrespectful, or that the abuse is deserved. Male privilege gives him permission to shift responsibility to his female victim for the acts he has committed.
Green Bay and New England. Those are the only names we need to know right now for Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Califronia next January.
