Kobe Bryant Retires, Possibly to Pursue Film but Needs to Rewrite Lakers Happy Ending

Vince Vega | November 30, 2015 | Sports
Kobe Bean Bryant has every opportunity to make the last 66 games count for more than a farewell. It's the final scene a great storyteller like Bryant was born to write.

Sports Just Don't Make Sense

Dr. Jim Taylor | November 29, 2015 | Sports
Ultimately, for you to keep pursuing your sports dreams, you must have faith that sports do make sense in the long run. Hopefully, that faith is rewarded with the results you want and the goals you have striven for. But, the reality is that sports don't always work out that way.

Chip Kelly is his Own Worst Enemy

Alan Schechter | November 28, 2015 | Sports
Coach Chip Kelly has come under fire, with some saying he may be gone after the season is over. After back to back 10-6 seasons, the Eagles are 4-7 without showing much sign of improvement. The problem is Chip Kelly. He is his own worst enemy.

How Nebraska Can Return to College Football Greatness

James Marshall Crotty | November 29, 2015 | Sports
Nothing I say here will assuage the pain of being a Nebraska Cornhusker football fan right now. This is especially true after our hugely disappointing loss to the no-nonsense, mistake-free, steady-as-she goes Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday at 90,000-strong Memorial Stadium in Lincoln (Nebraska's 347th consecutive sellout).

We Will Not Be Sidelined by Cancer

Shelley Smith | November 26, 2015 | Impact
It struck me hard. I realized I was watching donation dollars directly at work. So many people are skeptical of different foundations and charities, and rightly so. How many stories have we seen where someone was scammed in the name of (you name it) disease or cause?

As Lukaku Continues to Realise His Potential: How Long Until the Big Boys Come Calling?

Aiden Cusick | November 25, 2015 | UK Sport
His valuation is sure to have skyrocketed over the past 15 months, but even if it's forty-five or even fifty million pounds, few can be considered as worthy of that outlay as he can. No disrespect to Everton, a fine club of proud traditions, but it surely can't be long until Lukaku's exploits are again picked up on slightly further afield.

A Moral Stand Against the R-Word Makes Economic Sense

Ray Halbritter | November 25, 2015 | Sports
For the myriad businesses that work with the NFL, Adidas has shown that corporate partners do not need to be neutral when it comes to moral issues. They can support those working toward a simple goal: to stop the promotion of a dictionary-defined racial slur against Native Americans.

Following a FIFA Women's World Cup marred by a lawsuit over artificial turf, unequal prize money, and a corruption scandal, 2015 was on track to leave us with more questions than answers about what will come next to bridge these gaps.

As with all American traditions, if it happened once or twice it is one. Therefore I present my traditional Thanksgiving piece. The History of Thanksgiving and of Football both can be traced back to the Middle Ages, and so it may not be so strange that the two would...

Stephanie R. Caudle | November 25, 2015 | Sports
"After seeing Case Keenum's helmet bounce off the turf and watching him kneel in the fetal position, I was sure he would be taken out of the game. I was totally stunned that he went right back in the game. Many of us watching at home suspected he suffered a...

With 10 wins under their belt, the New England Patriots are rolling. But the team has also been taking its hits, too, making the offense less effective and putting more of the burden on Tom Brady's shoulders. Last night's game, which...

Not too long ago, I received a call from a well-intentioned dad who explained that he was an avid listener to my WFAN sports parenting show, and he wanted to ask my advice about his son, who he explained was a promising baseball pitcher. There was just one catch...
