After Years of Concussions, What Do I Do Now?

Rodney Peete | April 29, 2016 | OWN
I can honestly say I have no idea how many concussions I have had. One reason for that: There was no "concussion protocol" when I played, even up until the time I retired in 2005. After a hard hit to the head, you just got up, shook your head, saw some stars and tried to play through it.

For Love of the Game: Include People with Disabilities in Sports

Paras Shah | April 29, 2016 | Sports
Participation in mainstream sports is possible for people with disabilities if the right accommodations are made. Outside of school, in local sports leagues, it meant the world to me to play baseball by standing with a friend at first base and tagging the approaching runner.

Feeling Blue: Has the New York Rangers' Window to Win Closed?

Jesse Andreozzi | April 29, 2016 | Sports
Despite the team's playoff success in seasons' past, I felt deep down that this year's Blueshirt squad wasn't like the others. They didn't show the same level of grit, they didn't have the same ability to bounce back from tough losses.

Time to Stick a Fork in the Houston Rockets and Morey's Analytics Dream

Vince Vega | April 28, 2016 | Sports
Now, with no one left to blame, it may be time for Morey to fire himself. The numbers don't lie. Chalking up the amount of team discord, failures per dollar spent and lack of hustle should surely materialize in stats that would demonstrate this team's status as a disaster.

Autism Without Fear: Secrets/Confessions of an NFL Mock Draft Genius/Loser

Michael John Carley | April 28, 2016 | Sports
When we play sports, we fantasize about being the players. When we do mock drafts, it's the opposite. In an air of superiority, we instead pinch the skin, and check the teeth of NFL prospects. We get it then: They are not so enviable, and we are not so superior.

Baseball Still Trails on Diversity

Elizabeth Ann Thompson | April 28, 2016 | Black Voices
Major League Baseball was lily white, for players and management alike, until Jackie Robinson left the Negro Leagues to join the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. How much progress has been made toward the goal of diversity since then? Not enough.

How a Former NFL Receiver Can Teach Us a Thing or Two About Catching Joy

Kay Tacke Morse | April 28, 2016 | Sports
Hike one. Hike two. And the play begins. Credit to Mr. Heisman, the term "Hike" initiates the game of American football. Perhaps the term infiltrated the mindful mind of former UW and NFL receiver, Mark Pattison and programmed his neurotransmitters for what he...

How I Learned That Winning Isn't Everything

Cathy Byrd | April 27, 2016 | Sports
Perhaps it is no accident that a baseball has 108 stitches and a prayer necklace has 108 beads. Baseball does not discriminate and we do not have to believe in the same God to be on the same team. It is a game of courage, strength, and character that can bring grown men to cry.

Using SIERA to Win Your Fantasy Baseball League

Nicholas Mariano | April 27, 2016 | Sports
You're probably familiar with ERA (Earned Run Average). SIERA takes that further, standing for "Skill-Interactive Earned Run Average". It was created to quantify how well a pitcher has truly performed based on, well, their skills. That's ambiguous, so let's wade in a little with a case study.

Haunted by a sense of failure, he knew that he had the ability to beat the best players, and he regularly did so at lesser tournaments. In Grand Slam finals, however, he couldn't cope with the pressure, and allowed his rivals to dominate.
