I truly believe its difficult for anyone to succeed at anything and be truly humble about it. Isn’t there a part in all of us that strokes our ego and tells us, “Yeah, you’re better than everyone you know?” For some, that thought is fleeting, and for others it’s an idea that hangs around the aura of a person, which causes peers to say, “Wow, he is so full of himself.” There’s a fine line to...

In thirty years life brings a lot of regrets. The first day of kindergarten. The sight of a massive unibrow in the mirror from the day I turned 14. The three years I spent driving a Saturn. But none of these depressing moments prepared me for the 2007 Miami Dolphins season. My nearest and dearest can confirm that I am passionate about a handful of things: family, religion and culture (that does not imply that...

Do we need the NBA? More importantly… Do basketball players need the NBA? As I continue to watch the exodus to international basketball and the players that are continuing the tours, summer leagues and charity games, I find myself thinking about what happens if the NBA repeats 98-99 or the NHL’s season lost? While it’s not a lot of players going the international route, and you only really hear about the LeBron’s, Durant’s and John...

Cam Newton… I really didn’t expect to be talking about him, well at least not in a positive light. I suppose the more you hear about a person the less interested you are in them. I mean unless you happen to be a Carolina fan. Even then, how much can you take? After being the first round pick in the 2011 NFL draft, a Heisman Trophy winner, and leading Auburn to a BCS national championship...

When Tony Romo replaced Drew Bledsoe in 2006 as starting QB for the Dallas Cowboys, I was more than excited for my team. ANYONE had to be better than Bledsoe, right? As his career at starting QB progressed, I realized the things I truly remember about his performance in games have been less than perfect. So to list the standout moments they go as follows:

When a young Mariano Rivera was growing up in a fishing town in Panama, little did he know the fishing nets that him and his friends knotted together to make a ball and branches they used as bats would lead to 602 career saves and a first ballot ticket to Cooperstown. In fact, not even the New York Yankees knew he could have envisioned him having the career he had when he was just a fill-in...

New Orleans kicked off the 2011 NFL season with a loss to the reigning champs, the Green Bay Packers. Sean Payton’s crew tried to engineer a comeback, but came up just a little short. For some odd reason, I’m not completely devastated by this. There were signs of potential across the board. For what it’s worth, the Packers did just win the Super Bowl. New Orleans came into week two determined to notch a win...
