Pedro Martinez Shows Solidarity With a Young Pitcher

Lincoln Mitchell | October 1, 2014 | Sports
Ventura is a very good young pitcher who was a member of the Royals rotation all year where he posted a very respectable 3.20 ERA and a 14-10 record. Bringing him in to pitch in an unfamiliar situation like on only two days rest seemed especially strange and almost cruel to the young pitcher.

All Is Unfair in Love and Domestic Violence

Morris W. O'Kelly | October 1, 2014 | Sports
Those angry with LeBron James for simply changing employers began burning his jersey mere hours after the announcement, not waiting seven months to hopefully exchange them. I seem to have missed the videos of fans burning the Rice jerseys. Maybe changing teams is a greater offense than delivering a hook to the jaw of a woman in an elevator.

Who Does God Root For?

Mathew N. Schmalz | September 30, 2014 | Religion
I thought all along God was rooting for the Patriots. But now I'm asking myself: Did God invent the tuck-rule that saved the Patriots from the Raiders in 2001?

Second Chances

Dr. Donna Dannenfelser | October 1, 2014 | Sports
There needs to be a cultural change with the league's front office. It can no longer be the dirty little secret that no one wants to talk about. We're talking about it and we're talking loudly about it.

"Is that shirt supposed to be funny?" she asked motioning to my satirical "Caucasians" T-shirt. And then she said, "I'll f*cking cut you." This is the part you don't really see in its full glory on the segment.

Its seems that the defensive end of the Houston Texans, JJ Watt, can do it all this season. Not only is he a feared one-man wrecking crew on the defensive front, but he's even making an impact on the other side of the ball.

Brent Miller | September 30, 2014 | Sports
It was nearly five years ago when I asked my NASCAR-loving former college roommate, Bill Gross, to give me a list of up-and-coming race car drivers. It was an interesting world that I -- and millions like me -- knew nothing about, yet clearly one that dominated the American sports culture.
