Is There Life After Sport -- And After Election 2016?

Fiona Citkin, Ph.D. | September 28, 2016 | Sports
When watching the Games, the vigor and beauty of the sportsmen who push the limits of human ability, I often think of these young people's future. Is there life after sport? Alternatively, I cannot but think of the post-election lives of the candidates who lose.

Why Kevin De Bruyne's Injury Is A Greater Blow To Manchester City Than Sergio Aguero's Ban Was

Jamie Spencer | September 28, 2016 | UK Sport
That De Bruyne was forced to leave the game early with a hamstring problem not long after that decisive moment and is now expected to be out of action a few weeks comes as a huge blow to City. And it's a blow that is bigger than briefly losing Aguero to suspension was earlier this month.

Jarvis Landry Gives Us A Tour Of His Small Louisiana Hometown In 'The Neighborhood'

Julian Patterson | September 28, 2016 | Sports
BY CHRIS YUSCAVAGE Jarvis Landry’s former LSU teammate and best friend Odell Beckham Jr. might get more praise than he does on a national level right now, but if the Dolphins wide receiver keeps doing what he’s been doing through the first three games of the 2016-17 NFL season, it won’t be long before people are calling him one of the best wide receivers in the league. Landry has caught 24 passes, recorded 314 receiving yards, and scored one touchdown so far this season, and it looks like he’s poised to build on the performance he put on last season when he caught 110 passes, recorded 1,157 receiving yards, and scored five touchdowns while earning his first Pro Bowl invite in the process. The guy is a star in the making. Success obviously didn’t come overnight to Landry, though. He’s been putting in work for a long time now, and he credits his hometown of Convent, La. with giving him the tools he needed to transform himself into a Pro Bowl player. Convent has a very small population — less than 1,000 people live in the town, which is a part of St. James Parish, La. — but Landry says the town and the people in it helped him build the character he would need to succeed in the NFL. It also had levees that allowed him and his brother to train for football when they were kids. Complex caught up with Landry recently to take a tour of Convent. He showed us the levees he used to train on, took us home to meet mom, and shared what it was like to go through the NFL Draft experience with OBJ. Check out the video above to see what Convent is all about and to learn why Landry loves it...
