Tony Romo is not going to win the NFL MVP this season, that much is clear. There are too many other great quarterbacks having monstrous seasons: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck, to name a few. And his teammate in the Dallas Cowboys backfield, running back DeMarco Murray, is firmly in the conversation as well. But at 34 years young, Romo, fresh off his second serious back surgery, is enjoying the best season of his illustrious (if highly criticized) career, and he has most definitely earned the right to be at least in the conversation about MVPs and elite players.
hings just keep getting worse for the Forty-Niners. After blowing a huge lead the San Diego Chargers fought back and tied the game to force an overtime and came away with the 38-35 victory over San Francisco. Nick Novak's 40-yard field goal sealed their win in OT.
Vishy Anand could be the Phoenix of Chess. Many times down, but never out. Again and again he rises up to snatch another tournament triumph, another world championship.
Volunteers are the backbone of sport in the UK, without them sport just wouldn't be possible.... Volunteering helps boost communities, people who volunteer in sport feel closer to their communities, they feel they can trust their communities and that they have an impact on what that community is like. I've seen it first hand, people from different backgrounds, ages and areas coming together for a cause they feel strongly about.
We projected a down week for Rodgers last week, but he bounces back into the top three this week against a bottom ten pass defense that will be without its best pass rusher this week.
About 35 miles into a 60-mile brisk ride with friends, Daryl, who was 54 at the time, struggled to keep up with his companions as he cycled up a small hill. "I got winded and heard myself wheezing," he recalls.
We will not move forward as a society until we can bring ourselves to listen and respond to the cries of those whose spirits have been crushed by the chokehold of poverty and racism.
My work offers athletes easy-to-understand and practical tools, such as mental imagery, breathing, routines, and keywords, that can be incorporated readily into every part of your overall training program.
The "Johnny Manziel Show" debuted Sunday with more promotion and hoopla than successful veteran quarterbacks generally experience. The Cleveland-Cincinnati game went national -- and Manziel had a horrific afternoon.
I met Thierry Henry very early on, 20 years ago, when I was the manager for the under-17 French team. Back then, three things struck me about him: first, his extraordinary talent, his drive coupled with an incredible passion for football, and finally his personality. It was these three factors and all the hard work he put in that led him to the career we know.
DeMarcus Cousins returned to the lineup after missing ten games with viral meningitis. With seconds left on the clock Cousins made a three-point shot at the buzzer and missed. The Kings lost 108-107 to the Milwaukee Bucks who used small ball to outwit a team of bigs.
One of the things I look at when I observe officiating teams is how they handle transitions. This is every bit as important to good officiating work as puck support on the forecheck or backcheck is to playing winning hockey on the ice.
Each year more and more teams join the "select many" that are so honored because each year sees more and more bowl games blotting the landscape. It is nearly impossible for anyone to turn down an invitation to one of these events because the "prestige" (translate TV time) emanating from even the most obscure bowl, is too marvelous to reject.
Durant's unselfish is a rare trait for a player of his caliber. Think about Carmelo Anthony -- another prodigious scorer, but one who needs to be a volume shooter, at all costs. At 26 years old, Durant will have a chance to become the game's all-time leading scorer, but he shoots it at such a high rate, we are left wondering why he isn't more aggressive. Would a more selfish Durant benefit a team that has yet to fully maximize its potential with a world championship?
Speed skater Ireen Wüst was chosen female athlete of the year in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is the second time Wüst wins this award at the yearly organized sports gala, having won it before in 2006.
Spirits were high this weekend in Old Trafford ahead of the rivalry clash between Manchester United and Liverpool. Last week, United continued their unlikely, almost undeserved winning streak with a tense 2-1 victory over Southampton.
As if it wasn't bad enough that center DeMarcus Cousins has been out for almost three weeks with viral meningitis. The Kings fired head coach Michael Malone early this week that sent shock waves throughout the organization.
Chelsea and City are currently out in front by a large distance and are understandably favourites to take the crown, though contrary to popular belief, this year's Premier League is not yet just a duel between the two teams in blue.
