Selig Counted Money While Baseball Lost the Next Generation of Fans

Christopher Lamb | October 21, 2014 | Sports
Selig's legacy may be that he lost the next generation of baseball fans. This is Selig's last World Series. Perhaps nothing demonstrates how baseball has turned off young sports fans than how young sports fans have turned off the World Series.

The Development Factor: The challenge of sport in the 21st century

Richard Attias | October 21, 2014 | Sports
Sport occupies a peculiar place in world dynamics in that it surpasses the limitations of geographical boundaries and social classes. Still, a gap remains between developed and developing nations when it comes to sport. In the industrialized world, sport as an economic sector represents approximately 2% of GDP. For...

Game-Changing Plays from Week 7 in the NFL

John Ewing | October 20, 2014 | Sports
St. Louis used a fake punt to hold off Seattle 28-26. The Seahawks had rallied from a 21-6 deficit at the half to pull within one score of the Rams with 3:18 to play.

Tailored Football Fans

Rob Taub | October 20, 2014 | Sports
All of my football friends were out of town this weekend, and I can't stand to watch a game alone, so I decided to invite my tailors -- Wang, Patel and Rabinowitz -- over to watch some NFL action on Sunday.

How Would You Feel If You Were Clayton Kershaw?

Eric Trules | October 20, 2014 | Sports
It's bad enough having to drive by Dodger Stadium four times a week on my way to work. Down Academy Road, along Stadium Way, onto the 110 South. Past Chavez Ravine, where the Dodgers have played since 1956. Who needs to be...

Now some 34 months later, the pair are set to collide in a second installment, and all eyes will be watching to see if Mendes can unseat the UFC's longest reigning champion.

The Power of Opportunity

Masai Ujiri | October 20, 2014 | Impact
I had the good fortune to become the first African-born General Manager in American sports, a blessed example of someone given an opportunity. But as fortunate as I have been, I'd be a failure if I couldn't provide opportunities to the next generation.

Will Anyone Be Watching The World Series?

Jordan Schultz | October 20, 2014 | Sports
The Kansas City Royals are in the World Series for the first since in nearly three decades, but it still won't save one of the greatest events in sports. This is the harsh reality for Major League Baseball, who routinely used to draw 50-million plus to crown its champion -- like it did in 1985 when the Royals last made it this far -- but will very likely sink below the 20 million mark, where it has stood for a decade.

The Definitive Ranking of Ballpark Food Items

Thomas McKenna | October 18, 2014 | Sports
In the many years since Norworth & Von Tilzer first penned "Take Me Out To The Ballgame," stadiums have begun offering a lot more culinary options than just peanuts and cracker jack. So which is king of the ballpark kitchen? And which are just pretenders to the throne?

Why Dave Brandon Won't Be Michigan's Athletic Director Next Year

Justin Knapp | October 17, 2014 | Sports
The meltdown at Michigan following back-to-back home losses and the severe mishandling of concussed quarterback Shane Morris left the realm of my "passion" and entered the world of "profession." I may have a love for football, but my career is in communications.

Should There Be a Way Back for Ched Evans? Look to the NFL's Michael Vick for an Answer

Charlie Lindlar | October 17, 2014 | UK Sport
In many ways, Michael Vick represents the best of the justice system. He committed horrifying crimes, served his time, reclaimed his lost career, fortune and integrity, and changed himself after coming to terms with the wrongs of the life he was living.

We're Off!

Team SCA begins sailing around the world in the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race, a 39,750 nautical mile ocean race reaching 10 countries over the next nine months. On the boat we are sailing with 12 women, including one onboard reporter (that's me), but our sailing team is made up of 14 women - all incredibly strong and intelligent on the art of sailing offshore.

Are We Finally Over Jameis Winston?

Dan Karpuc | October 17, 2014 | Sports
If you were the general manager or coach of an NFL team in charge of personnel decisions, especially due to current events, why would you ever take the risk of drafting Winston? I certainly wouldn't. Who could possibly trust the guy?

The stories, players and characters behind this World Series are as compelling as in almost any year. If you're a baseball fan and don't realize that, you haven't been paying attention.

Why I'm Supporting Stand Up to Cancer

Andy Murray | October 17, 2014 | UK Entertainment
It's been well documented that one of my best friends, Ross Hutchins, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma a few years ago. Ross and I had grown up together on the tennis circuit, and his diagnosis was devastating. He was treated with chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital and a year after his diagnosis, his cancer went into remission. He's now fit and well to this day - a testimony to the crucial advances we've made in cancer treatment thanks to ground-breaking research into the illness. But not everyone is so lucky. At the beginning Elena Baltacha, the former British number one, was diagnosed with cancer of the liver. She died in May, at the age of 30.
