Kershaw, Dodgers Shutout Giants

Malaika Bobino | July 27, 2014 | Sports
Ryan Vogelsong got off to a great start. He retired the first nine batters he faced but unraveled in the fourth. Again he got no run support as the Giants got shutout 5-0 by the Dodgers.

The Power of a Present Mind in Sports and in Life

Howard Falco | July 25, 2014 | Sports
A present mind is the doorway to the most powerful state of personal creation. However, to get there, each person going after their dream must be willing to self-reflect and make the necessary changes to become this new version of themselves.

The Cavs Can Win Now, and Later, If They Keep Wiggins

Thomas McKenna | July 25, 2014 | Sports
Retaining Wiggins wouldn't be wasting the remainder of LeBron's prime -- it just might be what extends it.

35 Secrets of Brilliant Coaches

Anne Josephson | July 24, 2014 | Sports
While superior knowledge of the sport is a cornerstone of a brilliant coach, it takes so much more than content and procedural knowledge to be a brilliant coach or teacher.

Tony Dungy's Comments Shed Light on Michael Sam's Draft Stock Drop

Eric Marmon | July 24, 2014 | Sports
At what point will drafting an openly gay player no longer be described as risky because of the alleged distraction?

The Stupidity of the New York Giants Hiring Anti-Gay David Tyree

Michelangelo Signorile | July 24, 2014 | Gay Voices
How exactly is a homophobe supposed to carry out the job of director of player development? How is a gay player on the Giants supposed to react to this if he is thinking about coming out or is experiencing anti-gay harassment on the team?

Another Call to Rewrite Baseball's Record Books

Ron Kaplan | July 24, 2014 | Sports
You hear a number of sports pundits clamoring about throwing out the records of those who have used performance enhancing drugs. But really, everyone knows how impractical that would be.

Cort Ruddy | July 24, 2014 | Parents
The world has many flaws, even more than I realized before I became a dad of daughters. But there are also a million things that are great, and awesome, and inspiring about it. This is one.

The Original Boy of Summer Belongs in Cooperstown

Robert Miraldi | July 23, 2014 | Sports
Roger Angell reminded us recently with a long memoir piece why he will be inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame this weekend. As much as his selection is deserved, there is another Roger out there who has not yet gotten the nod.

Andrew Wiggins Could Be the New Face of the Minnesota Timberwolves

Jovan Alford | July 23, 2014 | Sports
If you are a Timberwolves fan, you should be on board for Wiggins to Minneapolis because he could become the new face of the franchise. With Love being traded, you lose a franchise player but gain one in the process.

Why Tony Dungy Is Right About the Michael Sam Distraction

Stephanie Schroeder | July 23, 2014 | Sports
Dungy is right. The first openly gay football player being drafted into the NFL has garnered, and will undoubtedly continue to capture, quite a bit of media attention -- that's where Dungy starts being right. That's also coincidentally where he stops being right.

Officiating by Bureaucracy and Fear

Paul Stewart | July 23, 2014 | Sports
The NHL conditions its officials to fear the game and to avoid criticism. In more recent years, the NHL has tried to make its officials voiceless as well as nameless and faceless. Officials are also banned from being quoted in the media.

10 Reasons I Love Fútbol (That's Soccer, for Ya'll Americans)

Maria Rodale | July 23, 2014 | Sports
I'm not going to dwell on why I don't find the big four U.S. sports appealing (football: boring; baseball: even more boring; basketball: the shorts and bad gym smells; hockey: too cold). Instead, I'll focus on what I absolutely love about soccer.

Let's Hope the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Give London 2012 a Run For Its Money

Margaret Curran | July 23, 2014 | UK Politics
The Games have been more than eight years in the making, beginning with the 2006 bid and only succeeding because of the hard work, support and patience of thousands of volunteers, organisers and residents. And there's a great deal of hard work still ahead, with some 15,000 Clyde-siders (the name given to the Commonwealth volunteers) selflessly giving up their time to help ensure things run smoothly. The Commonwealth Games will hopefully be some light relief (for politicians and the public!) from the referendum debate, and the vote that will happen on 18 September.

The Hall of Famer You May Not Know

Michael Corvo | July 22, 2014 | Sports
On July 26 in Cooperstown, New York, most of the focus will be on Hall of Fame inductees and a prestigious group of managers. There is another honoree, however, to whom attention must be paid: arguably our greatest living baseball writer.

Will the Giants Improve Their Bench?

Lincoln Mitchell | July 22, 2014 | Sports
After a charmed first half of the season, the San Francisco Giants stumbled badly from roughly June 9 until the All Star Break. They have played reasonably well since the All Star Break, winning three of four and are now back in first place in the NL West.
