This injury is occurring too much, and all the factors must be reviewed, but one common theme should be addressed: athletes must have time and a plan to recover from their cumulative training loads.
I have no rational reply to why I have always been fascinated by surfers. I love to look at the ocean, but it takes a village to get me in one. Riptides scare the hell out of me, and I exhale great relief when my kids emerge wet but unscathed.
Tuesday's CONCACAF Champions League game between D.C. United and Montego Bay United F.C. was a true game between the haves, and the have-nots of North American soccer. With the result showing the gulf between the two teams.
I've never moved in military circles. I'm from a family of civvies, which has made my learning curve all the steeper. There is much to understand. Since my baptism of fire at the Invictus Games, Help for Heroes have welcomed me into the fold.
When you think of female sports pioneers, you probably think of Wilma Rudolph, Nancy Lieberman or Billie Jean King -- women of the pre-Title IX age who made the road a little easier for the athletes who followed. It's about time you added the name "Barbara O'Brien" to that list.
Robinson lived in the East from 1947 until his death in 1972. Robinson found his greatest success in Brooklyn, but he could not have become the man he did if he had not grown up in Southern California.

Manchester United performed magnificently in the second leg of the Champions League Qualifiers against Club Brugge. Wayne Rooney, the captain, led the way with a hat trick, finding the net for the first time this campaign.
One day, you realize how absurd your current mindset is, that this shit doesn't matter. You let your demons go, knowing that, perhaps, sharing your story can help some other chubby, goofy, socially-isolated, sensitive kid getting bulled in America who feels like no one in the world cares about him.
My gold medal is my most-prized possession -- I'm so proud of it. However, I never wanted my kids to feel like they had to have a gold medal in order to be considered a success... so I haven't displayed my medal. Here's where it currently lives...
The recent headline atop an excellent ESPN article by investigative reporters Steve Fainaru and his brother Mark Fainaru-Wada says retired San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland is "the most dangerous man in football."

Let's say your boss shows up and decides he's had enough of you. You're not helping the company anymore and you've become a distraction, so he offers you millions of dollars just to go away. Who wouldn't take that deal?

Louis Van Gaal,
United were the hosts on the afternoon, but did little to welcome their opponents graciously. They dominated possession the entire match, mostly in Newcastle's half of the field. Their opponents seemed to prepare a game plan that readied them for the onslaught of United.
The fact that the Parisian crunch didn't go to plan means that emotions are running even higher than they would have been if England had delivered the performance that expected and as such secured a victory. We all have our opinions but at that end of the day they are just that and Stuart Lancaster and his coaching team will be the ones to decide.
Given everything that's now known about the prevalence of concussions in the game, and the terrifying long-term impact they can have on a kid's health, would you let your own kid play football? It turns out, even for NFL players and coaches, there's not much consensus.
Being a Mets fan (and similarly loving them) means you know all too well that many times the story does not end the way you want. But it doesn't change your ability to believe in the happy ending, no matter how much you hide that belief.

I listen to Tim as he speaks about these experiences during his NFL career and I can't help but feel compassion and a sense of sadness. This is not just Tim's story, it's been repeated over and over in the media.
For all they achieved in life, or did not achieve in life, the Cannon Street all-stars continue to wonder what would have happened if bigotry had not denied them the opportunity of playing in the Little League World Series.
When Navratilova was 11 years old, on August 21, 1968, Soviet tanks invaded her native Czechoslovakia, crushing the country's fledgling spirit of reform. "Our hopes had been built up so high -- 'socialism with a human face,'" wrote Navratilova in her 1985 autobiography, "-- and now we were getting a boot in our face."
The heart of a champion is concealed inside a boy from the country. It is locked up in the body of a kid from the inner city. It hides within the inexperienced and the experienced alike. Coming in all shapes and sizes, it is invisible at first glance.
I have found, most of the fighting goes on outside the ring in boxing. At least for the fighters, or the ones I know; ones like Abner Mares. He's been fighting his entire life but not for some lofty title; like many boxers he's been fighting for his life his entire life.
