At a time when lunch counter sit-ins were met with insults and abuse, peaceful protest marches provoked fire hoses and snarling police dogs, Eddie Robinson urged Grambling athletes and students to go to class, get an education, and be ready for change.
Super Bowl L was a walk-off performance by everyone involved, except for the defense for each team. They should've stuck around and possibly tried to play offense as well. They couldn't do much worse.
This night couldn't have been scripted any better. A team that dominated during the regular season comes in with all the buzz and stats to complete their season with a win.
Whether it be getting that big promotion or signing a huge client, you want to shout it to the world, but this is where celebrating with grace comes in handy. While we are on cloud nine after coming out victorious, there's probably someone else on the losing side.
What you are about to read is based on a true story. And apologies in advance for its length. I had a feeling that the other weekend wasn't going to go as planned. My wife, Sarah, had just left for ten days in Cambodia, so I was on full-time parenting...
So best of luck in retirement to Peyton. No one deserves being in the Hall of Fame more than Peyton Manning does. He was a class act on the field. As for the classiness of "Manning Rules," we'll leave that to others to decide.
Let's realize that Blake Griffin's punching of Clippers assistant equipment staff manager, Matias Testi, was egregious but not evil. Griffin is not an evil person, just someone with poor impulse and anger control.
I was able to get two tickets to the game, which left me choosing between my 15-year-old son, my dad, my brother and several close friends. After thinking about it, I decided to go with the person who needed it most.
Because there is almost no research available to describe the social, economic, health and other consequences associated with fantasy sports, whether seasonal or accelerated, the first step is to construct research to investigate the pattern, practices and psychology associated with fantasy sports.
Believe it or not, the biggest face-off during Super Bowl 50 isn't between Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and Cam Newton's Carolina Panthers, but amongst the businesses squaring away in the Bay Area during Super Bowl week's festivities. With over 114 million people tuning in to watch the Super...
The Super Bowl is a 21st Century American spectacle echoing the ancient, Roman tradition of combat games in the Coliseum or annual sporting events in the Circus Maximus. It allows us to look back and forward at the same time. But, let's look at the NOW first. Before Super...
Not all of us are lucky enough to breathe freely during the holidays, on Super Bowl Sunday, and every other day of the year. The victims of domestic violence in communities across the U.S. deserve legal assistance so that to ensure they are safe and secure.
I want to start by saying hello. This is my FIRST blog! I am excited to give you all a peek into my life both on and of the track. Here we go.... After a really tough training session out at the track on Friday afternoon, some thoughts surfaced....
In a recent interview with the New York Times, world-renowned chiropractor Gerry Ramogida claimed that he was shocked by an Al Jazeera investigation into performance enhancing drugs. In the program, several of Ramogida's alleged business partners were exposed, appearing to offer banned drugs to a British athlete.

Sports and air transport are likely to serve as indicators of whether Iran has the flexibility to become a major node in an increasingly globalized world. At the core of Iranian efforts to become a global sports and airline hub will be its willingness to relax strict gender segregation, dress codes and its ban on alcohol.
I reject the notion that FIFA cannot be reformed from within. The crisis at FIFA is a crisis of leadership.
Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which is hosting the 50th Super Bowl (Super Bowl L), is regarded as one of the worst stadiums in the NFL, if not the worst. So why is it hosting the best game? It's all about rewarding teams with new stadiums, even if they aren't ready to host a Super Bowl.
Impressed by this marvelous vision, and surrounded as I am by devoted football fans, coaches, and players in my circle of family and friends, I scored (sorry) some championship advice for you to use and share.
National Football League,
It was saddening to learn of the latest NFL great to have suffered from the illness, but not shocking. Hall of Famers Frank Gifford and Junior Seau are just two of a growing list of former players who developed the disease, as confirmed the only way now possible -- through an autopsy.
