In my second season of fielding a Fantasy Football (FF) team, I won the first place prize. And I won the high point total also. It was impossible to predict when the season began how much a person could learn about himself by truly committing to the process. Here is my list.
Ever since the iconic 1984 Macintosh commercial from Apple, the intrigue of who's going to do what for their Super Bowl ad has become a spectator sport. It should be even bigger this year, and NBC is counting on it.
In a rare, impromptu, behind-closed-doors meeting, NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, met with other league officials and unanimously voted to allow the Patriots to take the 2015 season off. The meeting apparently took 10 minutes.
Regardless of what the numbers might say, you cannot deny that he's supremely exciting, and sure, if you want to go down the route of meaningless sports maxims, he's also a winner who shows lots of heart in the clutch.
Football playoffs are arduous for those of us who have general anxiety disorder. I'm on meds and they help, but the lucky-shirt-wearing, crossing-left-leg-over-right-to-insure-a-score fissures in my brain run deep, like a Jordy Nelson post pattern.
Collectively, we love to make snap judgments about people based on what they say (see Sherman) or what they don't say (see Lynch). The media have made caricatures out of these two guys the last couple of years based solely on how much they talk or don't talk.
L'Damian knows that his worth and happiness come from more than money -- his recent tweet conveys these sentiments exactly.
The moment more fans reject that paradigm and hold the league accountable will be the moment things will finally change for the better. In a more diverse and tolerant America that increasingly rejects for-profit bigotry, that moment is coming sooner rather than later.
The Super Bowl is coming soon to big screens everywhere. I'll still watch the big game (being in advertising and marketing for three decades, I have to at least see the ads), but my mind is more and more on the minds of the players.
The struggles of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, in Sunday's loss to the Colts revives the classic question: Why don't professional athletes retire as their skills diminish? NFL players can't seem to quit when it is right, nor can athletes in any other sport.
St. Louis Ram owner Stan Kroenke's plan to build a state-of-the-art football stadium in Inglewood near Hollywood Park is the most promising opportunity for the return of the NFL to Los Angeles in many years.
Though a Pats fan dare not criticize beloved Bill, we hate to say that an end zone catch could have proven fatal for New England's prospects for the Super Bowl. Monday Morning quarterbacking is so much easier!
For millions of Americans, the mere mention of football season triggers sweaty palms and stomach churning. Sports betting is the most taboo yet pervasive activity among sports fans and grows in popularity exponentially.
While this breakup is going to be a difficult journey, and while I still care for and love my ex-boyfriend, the best part is that, now, I have all the time in the world to myself. I'm free of wanting. And I'm free of waiting.
The day will come where eight college teams will make the playoffs. I'm patient. I've waited my whole life for a college football playoff since I started watching the sport 45 years ago. I always joked there would be peace in the Middle East before a college playoff. I was wrong.
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
