By game's end, Peyton Manning had morphed from classy Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Famer into his dreaded alter ego: a cheesy pitchman I call Peyton Branding.
I was able to get two tickets to the game, which left me choosing between my 15-year-old son, my dad, my brother and several close friends. After thinking about it, I decided to go with the person who needed it most.
Super Bowl L was a walk-off performance by everyone involved, except for the defense for each team. They should've stuck around and possibly tried to play offense as well. They couldn't do much worse.
This night couldn't have been scripted any better. A team that dominated during the regular season comes in with all the buzz and stats to complete their season with a win.
Whether it be getting that big promotion or signing a huge client, you want to shout it to the world, but this is where celebrating with grace comes in handy. While we are on cloud nine after coming out victorious, there's probably someone else on the losing side.
Let's realize that Blake Griffin's punching of Clippers assistant equipment staff manager, Matias Testi, was egregious but not evil. Griffin is not an evil person, just someone with poor impulse and anger control.
So best of luck in retirement to Peyton. No one deserves being in the Hall of Fame more than Peyton Manning does. He was a class act on the field. As for the classiness of "Manning Rules," we'll leave that to others to decide.
Because there is almost no research available to describe the social, economic, health and other consequences associated with fantasy sports, whether seasonal or accelerated, the first step is to construct research to investigate the pattern, practices and psychology associated with fantasy sports.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, world-renowned chiropractor Gerry Ramogida claimed that he was shocked by an Al Jazeera investigation into performance enhancing drugs. In the program, several of Ramogida's alleged business partners were exposed, appearing to offer banned drugs to a British athlete. That athlete, Liam Collins, was working undercover for Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit.
Sports and air transport are likely to serve as indicators of whether Iran has the flexibility to become a major node in an increasingly globalized world. At the core of Iranian efforts to become a global sports and airline hub will be its willingness to relax strict gender segregation, dress codes and its ban on alcohol.
I reject the notion that FIFA cannot be reformed from within. The crisis at FIFA is a crisis of leadership.
Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which is hosting the 50th Super Bowl (Super Bowl L), is regarded as one of the worst stadiums in the NFL, if not the worst. So why is it hosting the best game? It's all about rewarding teams with new stadiums, even if they aren't ready to host a Super Bowl.
Impressed by this marvelous vision, and surrounded as I am by devoted football fans, coaches, and players in my circle of family and friends, I scored (sorry) some championship advice for you to use and share.
It was saddening to learn of the latest NFL great to have suffered from the illness, but not shocking. Hall of Famers Frank Gifford and Junior Seau are just two of a growing list of former players who developed the disease, as confirmed the only way now possible -- through an autopsy.
