... afterwards the popularity of this game in America became dormant for few years. During 60s as well as 70s, this sport witnessed an evolution. When this game regained its popularity, the need of a national governing authority was felt by the experts for representing the country in the world ruby sports fraternity. Four regional associations were formed in Chicago in the year 1975 and USA Rugby also served as the governing body of the game.
More than thirty years later, the USA Rugby became the official member of USOC or US Olympic Committee as well as International Rugby Board or IRB.... (more)
...For the reality obsessed, there are countless shows on CBS, Discovery and TLC that detail weird addictions, extreme survival challenges and mining for gold in Alaska. For the drama obsessed, there are medical dramas, crime dramas, romantic comedies, period shows and more.
But for the sports obsessed, there are a handful of good shows that are worthy of attention. From reality to fiction to satire, here are five shows that sports fans are watching.
1. Friday Night Lights, NBC (2006-2011)
This small town drama follows the Panthers, a high school football team... (more)
...to me. Recently I was given a newspaper (cause I’ll be damned if I spend my hard-earned money on any of these rags) and on the front page, the most important and meaningful bit of information this paper had to offer, was a trade and speculation about the effects of it on that nights sports event. Umm...what?
There are a plethora of events and situations both locally and globally that are having, and will have, a profound effect on our lives and the best they can come up with to lead off these reports (assuming they will report on them) is sports? Maybe I’m being too... (more)
“You can’t see me! You can’t see me!” he repeatedly tells his challenger, taunting, as he waves his hand, back and forth, fingers splayed open in front of his face—his signature move. That would be John Cena; a professional wrestler, a rapper, and an actor. And at six feet plus one inch tall and weighing roughly 250 pounds of pure, solid muscle, the man is a Titan. And though mere mortal men may fear to approach him children love him!
In March of 2009 John Cena made an appearance at Eastridge Mall in San Jose, in a little store called FYE (For Your Entertainment). He was there to meet... (more)
...in awe at their unique abilities. Like art in motion, their magical actions and reactions on the playing field let us witness what God-given gifts and talents some are truly born with. Our focus on them is sometimes unwavering, occasionally worshiping. Some even see them as idols. I've loved sports since my father first placed a tennis racket in my hand at the age of four. He saw the value of doing this, how it would soon teach me the discipline, effort, and sweat required to become truly good at something. Tennis taught me the value of physical conditioning, though I'll admit, age has... (more)
It is difficult to mark the passing from summer into fall, even in my land of threes, without noting the glorious return of our real national pastime: football. What has for the past six months been my passing, ancillary and utterly marginal interest in sports has now turned into a ravenous information, betting and televised game-play hungry beast that no one dares leave unsatiated. The American obsession with this weekly symphony of violence is well-documented and ever-growing, but not truly understood. I, for one, believe that as our society has become more and more gentrified (i.e. wussified)... (more)
...fan of the New York Knicks for as long as I can remember, I am seeing some things that are definitely repeating themselves. Let me be honest. I have not been blogging for a long time, but I have been watching basketball for a very long time and over the past few season I have been looking at sports with a more critical and discerning pair of eyes. I said a little bit ago that the Knicks are repeating some things that I have seen before. I’ll tell you what I’m seeing.
First off, the Knicks went out in the off-season and signed free agent Amar’e Stoudemire. I have to tell... (more)
It had come to this moment. My 13 year-old son, Jordan was dressed in a football uniform and ready to take the field. The only problem was, would one of the coaches call his name? It had been a long football season already. In fact, there was only one more game left to play after today.
As I sat in the stands outside my son's middle school, I scanned the sidelines on the other side to find my son. The middle school only had bleachers on one side. The visiting team was in front of the bleachers and in front of all of the moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandparents, cousins, neighbors... (more)
...is where she has mixed up two distinctly different issues, like oil and vinigar. She did a good job mixing in the middle but in the end, just like oil and vinigar mix, the issues separate. This is the typical "outsider view". They don't understand the issues.
Issue #1: Professional Sports Is Business
Issue #2 : Sports In Ohio Are Personal
Back to the misleading title. This title leads us to think the author is going to deal with Issue #2. The article actually deals with issue #1. For that reason it is a poorly slanted piece because the author failed to address the ... (more)
...over to the NFL. Talk about erasing our debt and getting us back on track. Sure, there’s no such thing as a sure thing, but the NFL is about as close it gets. And that’s a cozy thought in this world of violence, disease and uncertainty. Who would have thought that one of the most violent sports on the planet could be a source of comfort? But oddly enough it is. It puts us all at ease, at least for one day out of the week. And since Sunday is traditionally the day of rest, somehow this works for us. So whomever your team is, or whomever you’re rooting for, we say GO TEAM. We’ll be ... (more)
