The Russians are coming -- again! From the 1950s through the '80s, on screen, in print, the very badest of baddies were always the Russians.
As I mentioned previously it seems as if there are always some bizarre or hilarious developments in the world of sport while I am out of touch. A few days ago I reported on my experiences watching hockey in Russia. Now I want to revisit what many of you will consider old news.
Louisiana, Georgia, and Florida, we hear you want to host the Super Bowl--one of the most iconic and lucrative sports event in country. Congratulations, you've made it to the finals for states in the running for the 2019 and 2020 bidding process.
Dear God, if you are listening to Governor Jindal's prayers asking if he should run for president, please just say, "No." Louisiana cannot afford his ambitions anymore.
Never in the history of modern times have we been presented with such a golden opportunity to teach our children as with the sensational phenomenon known as 'Deflategate.'
There is a new road being paved from Park Avenue in New York to Foxboro, Massachusetts. It might be cheap asphalt or it might be everlasting cobblestone. Only one thing is for sure, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the foreman on the job.

The beautifully captured moments are definitely truthful moments, but I don't forget what's behind them. Nobody I know leads a life of only rainbows and butterflies, hot tubs and wine. Friends are for Facebook. But also, friends are for Life.
A six-quarter Super Bowl would have 50 percent more football and double the halftimes. It would take about five hours. New records would be set in just about every category. Who wouldn't want to watch a Super Bowl with a final score of 73 to 68?
I'm sure you've met him, or her. That person who says he'll finish the project tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes. Or the person who promises to call as soon as she gets home, but you never hear from her.

The "Like a Girl" advertisement that aired on Super Bowl Sunday was inspiring. And so are the many women and girls across the globe who overcome seemingly insurmountable odds on a daily basis. Let us not forget what it means to act "like a girl" - not just athletically, but in terms of human prosperity and a more just world.
