NFL says Girls Are All Right? Super Bowl Promoted Girls Through Sam Gordon

NFL says Girls Are All Right? Super Bowl Promoted Girls Through Sam Gordon
  At yesterday’s HarBowl, the NFL appeared to have any number of story lines going…brother vs. brother…Ray Lewis’ last game, Joe Flacco ultimately proving himself as a Super Bowl winner (and to my mind, just under the ‘elite’ status he craves) after five frustrating seasons….there was one story that I wondered if anyone picked up on like...

Is the 3rd Time The Charm for US Professional Women's Soccer???

Is the 3rd Time The Charm for US Professional Women's Soccer???
Will the third women’s professional soccer league finally be the charm in the United States? A coalition made up of officials from the US, Canadian and Mexican Federations surely hope so. The timing might just be right, following the US Women’s National Team’s gold medal-winning efforts in the 2012 Summer Olympics. And after the inroads... Read more »

107-2? Should There Be A 'Slaughter Rule' In Indiana HS Basketball?

107-2? Should There Be A 'Slaughter Rule' In Indiana HS Basketball?
In the NCAA Regional Basketball Tournaments, it’s always fun when mid-major Division 1 college teams (let’s call them “Davids”)—St. Xavier, Murray State,  Lehigh, Norfolk, etc., take on unsuspecting, swaggering  major basketball programs (aka, “Goliaths) like Duke, Kentucky, Louisville,  or UConn) and win it all. Hello, Duke vs. Lehigh in 2012….75-70 Lehigh…bye-bye to Coach Kin the Round of 64! Or... Read more »

Sleeping With the Enemy....A Postscript On Petraeus and Broadwell
I will never forget the first time I was asked out by the subject of an interview.

With both political candidates focusing so heavily on the women’s vote this November, I thought I would re-run one of my earlier columns this year about the many positive effects of Title IX, the ruling that changed my life and the life of many famous individuals.

'Wait Til Next Year' for Sky's WNBA Playoffs/Fan Appreciation Saturday Night

'Wait Til Next Year' for Sky's WNBA Playoffs/Fan Appreciation Saturday Night
There is no locker room atmosphere like the one where a season is over. I remember covering the Detroit Pistons locker room at the end of their run as the Bad Boys of the Eastern Conference at the dawn of the 1990′s, just as the Bulls began their legendary run of six titles.
