The 1936 Olympics was held in Berlin, Germany. Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party had risen to power three years earlier and were already to spread their evil beliefs of racism and hate. Hitler believed that the “perfect” person was from an Aryan race…a blue-eyed, blond haired, the perfect physique without any blemishes or handicaps.

Hitler saw the Games as an opportunity to promote his government and ideals of racial supremacy to the world. The official Nazi party newspaper wrote in the strongest terms that Jews and Black people should not be allowed to participate in the Games. However,... Read More

I think we have all wondered at some time in our lives what it would be like if two super heroes got together and fought it out. Superman vs. Iron Man. The Rock vs. The Incredible Hulk. Batman vs. Captain America. But what about famous sports stars or Hall of Famers?

This is an amazing story, written by Ryan Wilson, that I found a while ago, about two of the greatest athletes of all time and the one time that they faced off against each other. This is a short but fascinating account of this meeting.

During his nine-year playing career, Hall of Famer and former Browns running... Read More

Racism is an ugly and repulsive belief that millions of people around the world still believe in this poisonous mentality. Therefore, it is always good to hear of stories of people who took a stand against racism despite what people thought of them. Today’s story is about two professional baseball players. One that had to face the evils of racism everywhere he went…and another who decided to show people how he felt about racism and be a friend to his teammate.

Jackie Robinson was the first black to play major league baseball. Breaking baseball’s color barrier, he faced jeering... Read More

News from the Masters is the Tianlang Guan 14-year-old Tianlang Guan the youngest player ever to play a Masters hasmade the cut at 4-over par. This was despite the fact that he received a one stroke penalty on the 17th hole for slow play. Apparently it was reallly windy, Guan was making certain he chose the right club. Guan responded after today's play and said he respected the decision. Tiger Woods has played well and is three shots off the lead. He is three shots off the lead though could have been sitting prettier however bogied two of the last four holes. The current leader is Australia's... Read More

Trainer Nicky Henderson invited the press to an open day at his Seven Barrows stable earlier this week and it was impossible not to be impressed by the wealth of talent on display heading into the sport's centrepiece meeting, the 2013 Cheltenham Festival.Henderson is aiming around “35-40” at the festival in March and, with several of these already priced up as market leader for their respective targets, he is understandably a short-priced favourite to be the leading trainer over the four days, but what are the chances of repeating last season's feat of seven winners?That's as many winners as...

My father, a long-time bowler—a “Gringo” who for a short time toured with the Salvadorian team in the 1960’s—began his passion for bowling early in his youth. We, his family, followed. He would later encourage my husband and me to bowl with our own children in a family league.

My father had a true passion for bowling, and he was certainly one to emulate, a perfectionist to form, his bowling scores and average proved it. Although he never did bowl a 300 game, he was nevertheless right at 300’s door many [frustrating] times.

Bowling soon became our family’s obsession, too; in no-time... Read More
