Ryan Vogelsong got off to a great start. He retired the first nine batters he faced but unraveled in the fourth. Again he got no run support as the Giants got shutout 5-0 by the Dodgers.
A present mind is the doorway to the most powerful state of personal creation. However, to get there, each person going after their dream must be willing to self-reflect and make the necessary changes to become this new version of themselves.
Retaining Wiggins wouldn't be wasting the remainder of LeBron's prime -- it just might be what extends it.
While superior knowledge of the sport is a cornerstone of a brilliant coach, it takes so much more than content and procedural knowledge to be a brilliant coach or teacher.
If we had more leaders embodying this leadership mindset, we'd be well on our way to creating a better future.
While only two competitors can be named "The Fittest on Earth," elite CrossFit coach Carl Paoli wants you to know that everyone -- yes, even you -- can move and feel like a champion CrossFitter.
At what point will drafting an openly gay player no longer be described as risky because of the alleged distraction?

How exactly is a homophobe supposed to carry out the job of director of player development? How is a gay player on the Giants supposed to react to this if he is thinking about coming out or is experiencing anti-gay harassment on the team?
You hear a number of sports pundits clamoring about throwing out the records of those who have used performance enhancing drugs. But really, everyone knows how impractical that would be.
Female Role Model,
The world has many flaws, even more than I realized before I became a dad of daughters. But there are also a million things that are great, and awesome, and inspiring about it. This is one.

Boys Of Summer,
Roger Angell reminded us recently with a long memoir piece why he will be inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame this weekend. As much as his selection is deserved, there is another Roger out there who has not yet gotten the nod.
If you are a Timberwolves fan, you should be on board for Wiggins to Minneapolis because he could become the new face of the franchise. With Love being traded, you lose a franchise player but gain one in the process.
Luiz Felipe Scolari,
The Confederation of Brazilian Football (CBF) today confirmed its selection of Carlos Dunga as coach of the Brazilian national team. Dunga succeeds Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after Brazil's disappointing performance at the World Cup.
Dungy is right. The first openly gay football player being drafted into the NFL has garnered, and will undoubtedly continue to capture, quite a bit of media attention -- that's where Dungy starts being right. That's also coincidentally where he stops being right.
The NHL conditions its officials to fear the game and to avoid criticism. In more recent years, the NHL has tried to make its officials voiceless as well as nameless and faceless. Officials are also banned from being quoted in the media.
I'm not going to dwell on why I don't find the big four U.S. sports appealing (football: boring; baseball: even more boring; basketball: the shorts and bad gym smells; hockey: too cold). Instead, I'll focus on what I absolutely love about soccer.
The Games have been more than eight years in the making, beginning with the 2006 bid and only succeeding because of the hard work, support and patience of thousands of volunteers, organisers and residents. And there's a great deal of hard work still ahead, with some 15,000 Clyde-siders (the name given to the Commonwealth volunteers) selflessly giving up their time to help ensure things run smoothly. The Commonwealth Games will hopefully be some light relief (for politicians and the public!) from the referendum debate, and the vote that will happen on 18 September.
The Houston Astros are in the midst of a historical rebuilding process, one that is challenging some of the fundamental philosophies of baseball.
On July 26 in Cooperstown, New York, most of the focus will be on Hall of Fame inductees and a prestigious group of managers. There is another honoree, however, to whom attention must be paid: arguably our greatest living baseball writer.
San Francisco Giants,
After a charmed first half of the season, the San Francisco Giants stumbled badly from roughly June 9 until the All Star Break. They have played reasonably well since the All Star Break, winning three of four and are now back in first place in the NL West.
