Why Manchester United's Pursuit of Sergio Ramos Suggests They Refuse to Learn From Past Mistakes

Scott Saunders | June 30, 2015 | UK Sport
While Sergio Ramos is one of the finest defenders in the world, should United even be chasing him? Casting the facts aside that this could be a long, drawn out process, is it actually wise to be paying such big money for a player approaching the age of 30?

Women's World Cup Succeeds in Spite of FIFA

Jennifer Matt | June 30, 2015 | Sports
The Women's World Cup has been successful, yet FIFA's approach to managing the women's game leaves a lot of room for improvement. In most cases, the best approach for FIFA would be to simply run the Women's World Cup like they run the Men's World Cup.

Celebrating the Humanitarian in Sport

Eli Wolff | June 30, 2015 | Sports
Just as we celebrate the athletes who score amazing goals and bring us fantastic finishes, it is equally important to celebrate the humanitarians who utilize the platform of sport to champion social issues and social change.

Pro Teams Overdue in Las Vegas

Leigh Steinberg | June 29, 2015 | Sports
Las Vegas has a market population of 1.7 million with a combined metro population of almost 850,000. This would rank it around 13th among other U.S. cities. Yet, it doesn't have a major professional franchise. That is about to change.

Idolizing Tiger Woods From a Young Age

Steven Petite | June 29, 2015 | Sports
Watching someone who was once so great, no matter your opinions of him as a person, fall to the point that he has, is not easy, but observing a childhood idol plummet to these depths is undeniably painful.

I'm A Professional Wrestler. Here's Why I Finally Came Out

Matt Cage | June 29, 2015 | Gay Voices
I never originally intended to make a public post about my private life. However, with the constant speculation, I felt that it would just be best if I silenced everyone and told the truth publicly. To anyone who has ever been scared of just being real and telling the truth, you shouldn't be.

How Many Calories Are In Your Ballpark Snacks?

The Daily Meal | June 29, 2015 | Taste
Nowadays, major and minor league baseball teams seem to be taking their munchies to new heights with highly caloric foods. Think: the Diamondbacks' churro-stuffed doughnut or the Kansas City Royals bacon-topped hot dog with a Krispy Kreme bun.

You Kick Like a Girl

Ruth Holdaway | June 29, 2015 | UK Sport
'You kick like a girl'... from unfounded insult to accolade in a matter of weeks. Why? Because thanks to the FIFA Women's World Cup and the BBC's coverage of it, more audiences have been able to watch or listen to, enjoy and celebrate women's football than ever before this summer. Steph Houghton and her England teammates have certainly been putting on a show in Canada...

Finger Pulling, Head Pulling and Airplaning: The Craziest Arctic Sports

Paula Froelich | June 30, 2015 | Sports
When I first heard about the Arctic Winter Games, my head immediately filled with snowboarding, skiing, dog mushing, and possibly ice fishing. But that's not all that happens...

Pete Rose, The St. Louis Cardinals and the Need for Consistent MLB Ethics Policies

Lincoln Mitchell | June 28, 2015 | Sports
The newest revelations about Pete Rose betting on baseball, something that had long been suspected is a sad coda to a sad story about one of baseball's all time greats. Rose's efforts to finally make it to the Hall of Fame had been getting some traction earlier in the year, but that has changed now.

The Moment I Learned How to Fail

Jeremy Affeldt | June 26, 2015 | Sports
Mariano Rivera. Babe Ruth. Christy Mathewson. Sandy Koufax. Jeremy Affeldt?! I sometimes wonder if I told people just how close (and how many times) I came to quitting the game altogether, whether they'd even believe me.

Is Roger Federer the Most Interesting Man in the World?

Sajeel Qureshi | June 26, 2015 | Sports
I've been watching tennis for a long time and I've never seen the tennis crowd unanimously submit unyielding adulation to a player in quite the way we do for Roger Federer. I actually feel like he can divide by 0 sometimes when he hits shots that don't seem to exist.

RedzNZJourney: A Solo Kayaking Journey Around the 5000km of New Zealand

Jo Brothers | June 26, 2015 | Sports
20km before lunch, then back on the water to paddle 20km in the afternoon. Some days I will be able to surpass this target, while other days it could be more of a challenge due to weather. But if I average 30km of paddling on the water each day, the journey should take 180 days.

What do we do about A-Rod?

Roger I. Abrams | June 25, 2015 | Sports
The problem is deciding how we are supposed to deal with this baseball outlaw who ended the 2013 postseason proclaiming his innocence and suing both Major League Baseball and the Players Association.

The NFL is at it, Again!

Phyllis Sudman | June 25, 2015 | Impact
We want to hear more positive football stories because they restore our faith in humanity (and maybe in the NFL). However, these particular stories also reveal a very serious problem. How is our medical system missing these potentially-fatal heart conditions in our young athletes?

Golf Owes Tiger Woods

Steve Siebold | June 25, 2015 | Sports
Why? Why must everyone continue to beat up on the guy? This is a person who did so much for golf. He changed so much about golf for the better, but now he's everyone's punching bag. Instead of throwing him out in the trash and treating him like garbage, why don't we help him?

Advisory Council Rejects Labour Reform as Qatar Stiffens Its Back

James Dorsey | June 25, 2015 | Sports
Qatar's hardening stance threatens to roll back its successful effort since winning the right to host the World Cup four years to convince its critics that it was serious about reform of its notorious kafala or sponsorship system that puts employees at the mercy of their employers.

Was Bill Russell Really Traded for the Ice Capades?

Brian Cronin | June 23, 2015 | Sports
Why didn't the Rochester Royals draft Bill Russell? There is a legendary story explaining why they passed on Russell. The "Bill Russell was traded for the Ice Capades" story is now part of basketball lore. But is it true?

Grit, Grind and Mind: The Path of a Champion

Howard Falco | June 24, 2015 | Sports
What makes a champion? Is it heart, talent, preparation or a combination of all of these? Why do some break through to astonishing levels of athletic success and performance while others seem to have to fight to just get a glimpse of it?
