You Have to Spend Money to Make Money and the Leafs Have Money

Emily Cornelius | August 31, 2014 | Sports
Following the trend of "Moneypuck" - how can the Leafs spend more money, to see the highest ROI? The cap is the cap - you can't change that. So where else can they invest in?

A Marathon At The Edge of the World

Chris Taylor | August 30, 2014 | Canada British Columbia
This trip wasn't about ease. After spending almost 15 years abroad in the U.S., it was about reconnecting with the heart and soul of British Columbia: The vistas of Pacific beaches, the calls of the ravens at daybreak, the natural spirits that populate every curve in the coastline.

Team Focus: New Signings Provide Early Encouragement for West Ham

Martin Laurence | August 29, 2014 | UK Sport
With the relationship between Sam Allardyce, the West Ham board and fans forced to near breaking point at the start of the year the future at Upton Park didn't look too bright. The club stuck by the manager and Allardyce eventually steered the Hammers to a 13th placed finish, but rumours of unrest behind the scenes persisted going into the summer.

In the summer of 1983 I traveled from Manhattan to Buffalo, New York to work as a photographer on a movie starring Robert Redford called The Natural. It was a baseball movie, based on a novel by Bernard Malamud who was born in Brooklyn.

Dor colleges that live and breathe that sense of pride, tailgating isn't just a casual endeavor. It is an art form.

Why I'm Not Wasting Sundays on the NFL

Matt Sussman | August 29, 2014 | Sports
You probably disagree with me, and that's cool; enjoy your sport and find happiness in it. I didn't. So I'm not going to purposely watch any NFL games anymore.

Marvin Blugh | August 29, 2014 | Sports
The prospects for a reversal of fate and a return to glory are conflicted in light of recent transfer news as Van Gaal continues to add attacking players to the side, despite the evident lack of quantity of quality defenders to fill the backline.

In Fantasy Football, Kickers Make a Difference

Larry Schechter | August 29, 2014 | Sports
The conventional wisdom is that "kickers don't really matter"..."they are too unpredictable"...and "just get anyone from a pretty good offense, especially if they play in a dome or a warm weather city." I couldn't disagree more.

The Horrible Awkwardness and Angst of Being a Beginner: In Aikido or at Anything

Susan Harrow | August 28, 2014 | Impact
It's not easy being bad at something. But it's how we all start. And sometimes the awkwardness and ineptitude doesn't dissipate for quite a while. Beginnings can be awkward, uncomfortable, frustrating and fearful.

A Numbers Game: Making An NFL Roster

Wade Davis II | August 28, 2014 | Sports
Making an NFL team's 53-man roster starts in training camp. According to NFL rules, each team can only have 90 players when training camp starts. The process that all teams undergo to get from 90 to 53 can be difficult to understand. For players who are vying to make a team, it can be more stressful and challenging than playing the game itself.

The Seattle Seahawks met the Chicago Bears in the third week of preseason. I shot the game with the Lytro Illum, it's a new light-field camera which allows viewers to refocus the pictures after they were taken. So if a shot looks...

This Is What An Athlete Looks Like

Louise Green | August 29, 2014 | Women
I don't blame the young man for taking the visual cue of my body and neatly categorizing me with the 5k'ers (which is also a very respectable distance, by the way). Why would he believe that my plus-size body is capable of 21 long kilometres when there aren't any visual cues presented in society to tell us this is possible?

Basketball, Nostalgia and A Pseudo Self Portrait

Michael Starghill, Jr. | August 28, 2014 | Sports
Anyone that knows me well would be able to tell you that I'm a huge sports fan, but that I love basketball. Like, LOVE basketball. Playing, watching, coaching, fantasy...you name it. As much as I don't want this to sound like a "back in my day" kind of post...it might....

Big Five Have Changed College Sports Forever

Ken Reed | August 27, 2014 | Sports
The Big Five are now definitely in a league of their own - for better or worse. They got what they wanted: independence and the killing off of the bottom half of Division I. It was a classic power play.

Why Mario Balotelli Won't Make Up for the Loss of Luis Suarez

Andrew Easton | August 27, 2014 | UK Sport
Balotelli sounds like the perfect replacement for Suarez, but it's his on-the-pitch attitude that will lead to him coming up short in replacing the Uruguayan in Scouse hearts... For all his teething problems and penchant for diving, you never hear the word "lazy" and "Luis Suarez" in the same sentence.

Athletes Take a Stand for Mike Brown

Etan Thomas | August 29, 2014 | Sports
These critiques of athletes are not new. They have been articulated for years, in barbershops, bars, social media, various articles and blogs, by the everyday fan to the most celebrated scholars. But many still are misguided and inaccurate.

Make the Right Calls on Baseball Reform

John P. Donnelly | August 27, 2014 | Sports
MLB has an obligation to see that the right call is made and made quickly. New use of technology and the introduction of some new common-sense rules will result in faster play, fairer calls, happier fans and bigger gates.
