Good read, with embedded videos.
[quote]A fan favorite whose loquacious nature will serve him well as an NFL analyst, it is no stretch to say that Troy Polamalu would not have had nearly as many spectacular plays over his career had he not had a partner like Clark at free safety in the Steelers' ...

I wanted to get my nephew comic books for his birthday. He's 6 and reading and very much into superheros. I thought it may help his interest in reading.
Any suggestions of what would be appropriate? For example, easy to follow, mild violence is ok (good guys getting bad guys), but I'd prefer to ...

I think it's the male equivalent to women arguing about fashion which reality star is the biggest "bitch."
For one, it's subjective and there is no final, definitive answer, that's why the subject never dies.
There is no established criteria, just perpetual arguments. Football is a team spor...

Yeah, looking ahead, whatever.
So I have a spreadsheet in the past on tounrey info for..."entertainment" purposes.
Anyway, since 2005, there have been 50/80 BCS Conference teams that were 8 or 9 seeds.
Overall, only 4/80 have made it to sweet 16 or farther: 2011 Butler (Runner Up), 2014 ...

[quote]It's Phillips' second stint in the position, as he was also the Broncos' defensive coordinator from 1989-92. After the 1992 season, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen fired Dan Reeves and wanted to replace him with Mike Shanahan as head coach.
But when Shanahan didn't feel the timing was right. Bowl...

I am. Why? I can't really say.
I feel like I did when I was 7 and jacked for the game because the 49ers were awesome and I loved the Bengals unis and Ickey Woods' name and dance. I haven't felt this way for years.
As and adult, I'm jaded and bitter, but enjoy pro sports as an escape and beca...

I know this could be added to the thread yesterday, but IMO it's worthy of a separate topic and gets to the nuances on how "middle class" is defined and thought of.
I'm by no means rich, I've paid of recently paid off student debt for myself and wife (both with graduate degrees) and played by th...

[quote]If a $20,000 lottery ticket fell out of the sky and landed in the hands of an unemployed father of two who is going away to jail shortly, you would expect him to cash it in, right? That is basically the situation Scott Shelton finds himself in, and he has reportedly decided not to.

I'm a little shocked at how little presence he seems to have by this point.
For one, he doesn't have a working Senate.gov website. By contrast, Garret Graves has for at least two weeks. Through my experience, there is no excuse for this in 2014. [link=(http://www.senate.gov/senators/114thCongres...

Do they actually exist? All i can find are pages upon pages on Fox being wrong in some nuance. ...

This may have been discussed, but I can't think of a similar situation in major American sports quite like Jones. In part, it's because of the uniqueness of college football. A third string QB, the most important position on the field, but certainly no the only position. He played 3 games, 3/15 game...
