Late last week, news broke about Major League Baseball investigating what ESPN called, "multiple wellness clinics in South Florida, as well as individuals with potential ties to players." The revelations made by the Miami New Times and Major League Baseball are both startling and disappointing at the same time.
We have finally reached the final week of the 2012-13 NFL Season, as we continue our countdown to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. This game will continue to be broken down and analyzed with the same angles in mind: the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other, the special skill-set of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the pending retirement of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. However, in this article I will attempt to present a different angle to view this Sunday's game from: that the Baltimore Ravens are this year's version of a "team of destiny" and will win Super Bowl XLVII, just like the 2011 New York Giants.
One of the biggest topics of conversation over the last few years in the NFL has been the actions taken by the league to change rules and try making the game of football "safer." These changes have led to certain people, including Ravens safety Bernard Pollard, believe that the league will suffer from all of these rules changes and the violence in the NFL is fine
We are still ten days away from Super Bowl 47 kicking off in New Orleans, but there are some people who have already started to complain about how much coverage certain story-lines and "angles" are being covered by the media, local and national alike. As somebody who works in the media, I will openly admit that certain subject matters can become dry and run into the ground more than others, especially when everyone in the entire country is focusing on the biggest football game of the 2012-13 NFL season.
One of the most bizarre plays from "Conference Championship Sunday" in the NFL has been reviewed by the league, and Tom Brady is going to pay for it. The star quarterback of the New England Patriots has been fined $10,000 for making questionable contact with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Ed Reed on a slide late in the first half last Sunday.
Over the last week, a continuously developing story has been Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and how his girlfriend who supposedly died from Leukemia back in September was a hoax. The latest details come from an interview between Te'o and ABC News correspondent Katie Couric, who taped an interview for this Thursday night's edition of "Nightline," in which Te'o admits he lied to the media for a short period of time after he discovered his online girlfriend never really existed
About ten years ago, Jon Gruden earned some revenge, when he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to an emphatic 48-21 win over his former team in Super Bowl 37, the Oakland Raiders. Ever since that night, both teams have fallen back into a state of irrelevancy and that game is mostly remembered for Rich Gannon's pathetic performance with five interceptions, at least until the last few days.
The 2012 NFL Season was filled with three rookie quarterbacks leading their teams to the playoffs: Robert Griffin III of the Redskins, Andrew Luck of the Colts and Russell Wilson of the Seahawks. We also saw the emergence of Colin Kaepernick for the San Francisco 49ers, as they are now on their way to Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans
We are officially on the two-week road to the Super Bowl, as the 49ers defeated the Falcons and the Ravens beat the Patriots yesterday. However, following his team's loss in the AFC Championship, Patriots coach Bill Belichick refused to give an interview to Steve Tasker of CBS
Over the last seven days, the two stories dominating the sports landscape were Lance Armstrong's "admission" to using performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career and the revelation of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o having a fake girlfriend
The breaking news today is that Chip Kelly has decided to leave the Oregon Ducks football team to become the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. One of the big questions that will remain unanswered until the start of the 2013 NFL season is whether or not Kelly's offense can translate from the college game to the pros
