Candy Spelling | July 29, 2015 | Women
All of us celebrate when a woman is accomplished and awarded for her talent and skill and determination. It raises all of us up when we see women who are at the top of their game rise to the challenge and be rewarded for it.

James Dorsey | July 29, 2015 | Sports
This month's premier league final between Cairo's two storied clubs, Al Ahli SC and Al Zamalek SC, once the world's most violent derby, was more than a clash between two soccer giants.

Roger I. Abrams | July 29, 2015 | Sports
Deflategate is getting to feel like a monster movie that will not die. For reasons never adequately explained, the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, has upheld an onerous four-game suspension imposed on football's premier quarterback, Tom Brady.

Special Olympics Redefined My Concept of Sports, and Shattered a Few Assumptions Too

Colleen Haggerty | July 28, 2015 | Sports
As an athlete my entire life, a true tomboy growing up, I thought I understood the draw of sports. But it wasn't until I spent a few days with Special Olympics athletes that I realized just how powerful -- and empowering -- sports can truly be.

WATCH: Ex-NBA Player Goes From Addict to Inspiration

HooplaHa | July 28, 2015 | Sports
To NBA fans, Chris Herren looked like he had it all. Money, fame and a gorgeous family. However, his life away from the bright lights of the NBA court was ridden with addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Life After the Final Whistle

Louis Saha | July 27, 2015 | UK Sport
Fame and wealth can be temporary. A football career isn't likely to last as long as one would like and therefore, the importance of planning ahead can't be stressed enough; although sometimes a difficult reality to accept.

D.C. United 3 - 2 Philadelphia Union

Simon Heseltine | July 27, 2015 | Sports
D.C. United came into this game on the back of a 3 game losing streak. A trade with Real Salt Lake resulted in proven goal scorer, and Costa Rican international, Alvaro Saborio joining the team. With this increased firepower United were hoping to reverse their slide and get a win. It didn't start out well...

Gear of the 2015 Tour de France

Max Gladwell | July 27, 2015 | Sports
It takes years of dedicated training -- not to mention a fair measure of natural talent -- to ride like a professional cyclist. To ride with professional cycling gear, however, is just a matter of swiping a credit card.

Wait 'Til Next Year...

ilona saari | July 27, 2015 | Sports
This year while I waited to hear who would be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, a Nathan's hot dog sizzled in my frying pan, its spicy Coney Island smell making my mouth water as the names were announced. When it was over, I was so heartbroken I lost my appetite.

Sport and Society for Arete -- Baseball's Hall of Fame

Richard Crepeau | July 25, 2015 | Sports
If in fact PEDs do enhance performance what is the sum total of that impact when both pitcher and batter are using PEDs? Do they cancel each other out? Do PEDs contribute to foot speed making fielders more effective or causing an increase in infield hits and stolen bases?

The San Francisco Marathon Turns to Technology to Attract New Runners

Alicia Jessop | July 24, 2015 | Sports
This isn't your mama's San Francisco Marathon. The sport of running has hit a renaissance in the United States. These days, it's not uncommon for elite level runners to brush elbows alongside first-time marathoners while traversing race courses.

Greg Louganis - Back on Board, Big Time!

Donnie Demers | July 24, 2015 | Sports
Inspiration, when it happens, can be life-altering. A song. A movie. A poem. A dance. A painting. A hug. A smile. An act of kindness witnessed from afar. No matter where the inspiration comes from, its power can shift our perception and alter the way we see ourselves, forever.

That time finally came for Tim Brown who will join Jerome Bettis, Charles Haley, Bill Polian, Junior Seau, Will Shields, Mick Tingelhoff and Ron Wolf as the 2015 Hall of Fame Class. An honor many only dream about once their career is over.

ESPN Misplaces the Clarity Jug

Ken Becker | July 24, 2015 | Canada Business
During this weekend's golf at St. Andrews, the venerable Sean McDonough let slip the equivalent of an expletive on ESPN's coverage. "...the British Open -- the Open, pardon me..." The tournament was in Scotland, which, last I checked, remains in Britain.

The Dark Side of the Saratoga Race Meeting

Cathy Kangas | July 23, 2015 | Sports
Horses are magnificent creatures, but many trainers and owners are allowing unfit, unsound, even injured horses to compete by drugging them to mask the pain. It is up to us to protect them.

A Backstory of Black Men and Basketball

Rev. Otis Moss III | July 23, 2015 | Sports
I am a child of the forgotten city by the lake, Cleveland. I say this not because I am writing with an exaggerated sportscaster's righteous indignation, but my hometown heartbreak, love for the game, and interest in leadership gave my eyes a new lens to witness this Promethean event.

Three Unexciting Trades That Would Immediately Help the Mets' Offense

It's tempting to write an article begging the New York Mets to make a big trade for a significant bat at the deadline. After all, adding one of Troy Tulowitzki, Justin Upton, Todd Frazier or Yasiel Puig would instantly address the team's offensive problems.
