Jonathan Weiler | February 1, 2015 | Sports
In what has seemed like an especially inane lead up to the Super Bowl, Marshawn-Lynch-Won't-Talk-Gate has been particularly annoying. Especially aggravating is the media's ongoing insistence that it is somehow doing athletes a huge favor by covering them, as opposed to, you know, making their *own* livelihoods off the backs...

Super Bowl Bets, Meet Math

Nik Bonaddio | January 31, 2015 | Sports
Americans probably like to think of their countrymen as a group of achievers, hardscrabble hustlers who pull themselves up by the bootstraps each morning to go to work, eat apple pie, and fall asleep watching baseball.

Jimmy Nguyen | January 31, 2015 | Sports
Tennis history was made today as Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova to win her 6th Australian Open. More importantly, Serena's 19th Grand Slam singles title surpasses my childhood tennis icons Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. This latest victory reminds me why Serena knows how to stand out and WIN -...

Alicia Jessop | January 31, 2015 | Sports
On Sunday night, either the Seahawks or Patriots will walk out of University of Phoenix Stadium as winners of Super Bowl XLIX.

Spirit of the Hawk

Brad Puet | January 31, 2015 | Arts
Spirit of the Hawk Raven was walking along the beach. He looks far out to sea. He sees an island of fire spouting flames into the nighttime sky. Raven is not a good distance flyer. That fire is too far away for him to make it. But he knows...

Why Aren't All Commercials As Good As The Super Bowl Ones?

Troy Campbell | January 31, 2015 | Business
When we contrast Super Bowl ads with normal ads we learn a powerful business lesson: Being effective does not always mean being quality. It's a lesson many of us find hard to swallow. But it's bitter pill we all need to take.

7 Things You Should Never Say To A Woman Who Loves Football

Bustle | January 31, 2015 | Women
I'm not sure when females liking football became some rare disease that afflicts only remote sections of our population, but I've actually lost count of how many men, and yes women, are mystified by me. I'm talking about my sincere love for the game of football.

Dr. Donna Dannenfelser | January 30, 2015 | Healthy Living
It's a given that all athletes are concerned about their speed, strength and endurance while playing in the Super Bowl, but all of them are very much aware that having their heads on straight that day will make or break them.

Sport and Society for Arete-Super Bowl XLIX

Richard Crepeau | January 30, 2015 | Sports
It does seem a bit excessive even by NFL and Super Bowl standards, but then isn't this the way the free market of supply and demand works? If you have limited supply and unlimited demand, one Super Bowl and multiple potential host cities, then you grab all that the traffic will bear.

You're Invited to My Super Bowl Party!

Teresa Hsiao | January 30, 2015 | Comedy
There will be no neutral fans allowed, nor those "just rooting for a close game," nor those who "just want to watch the commercials." You will support the Patriots and you will like it.

Last-Minute Super Bowl Party Décor

Everything I'm using I either had on hand in my home or purchased at a supermarket or drugstore within radius of my house, to drive home the point that you really can do this at the eleventh hour and without buying Astroturf.

Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman Are Black Heroes

Jaleesa Jones | January 30, 2015 | Black Voices
The systematic iteration of the word "thug" in reference to black bodies is problematic because it perpetuates white supremacist ideologies about black people, namely that we are pathological, violent and lawless.

I don't know if there's a way to remove the sting, but at least we can attempt to reduce it: acknowledge our shared history, the pain of parting, and say 'thank you.'

Super Bowl XLIX is Between Lex Luthor and The Joker

John A. Tures | January 30, 2015 | Sports
Of course Americans will watch the game. But who will we root for? Who are we supposed to cheer for when it is Lex Luthor going against the Joker? Maybe football needs a villain, but not two of them.

The NFL 'Playbook' for Defending Racism Against American Indians

Michael Friedman, Ph.D. | January 29, 2015 | Sports
The Washington team's inappropriate response is unfortunately consistent with the "playbook" that the Washington team and NFL continues to use to defend the offensive and harmful team name and logo of the Washington team.

I've heard people say we shouldn't let our kids play football at all. I don't think this is the answer. I know my incredibly smart and talented friend Scott Ross didn't think it was the answer, either. We need to work together to find a solution.
