The fabric that brings it all together is Culture revolving around movies, TV, books, and politics. They do, we write.

    Preseason All-Amazing Team by Winner Only

    As we anxiously wait for another indoor track season to begin, we proudly introduce our first ever All-Amazing Preseason Team. Last year we wrapped up the outdoor regular season with an All-Amazing squad, so we said, why not shoutout our favorites that we predict will have big-time indoor seasons? The fun in this is to see who will match our expectations and what unnamed veterans or freshmen will breakthrough and steal the spotlight.

    Thumbs Up

    Thumbs Up

    In the summer of 2015 I took an internship in rural Vermont. Living on my own for the first time, I made sure to bring all the essentials for a summer of learning and growth; lots of non-perishable food items, sunblock, and most importantly my waterski. The internship site resided 400 yards shy of placid Lake Fairlee, and I hoped there might be a generous boater willing to give me a pull.

    Greed, Not Title IX, Responsible for the Cutting of Men's Sports Programs

    Greed, Not Title IX, Responsible for the Cutting of Men's Sports Programs

    I’ve played sports my whole life. They are a teacher, a test of character and provide an outlet that helps guide us along the journey of life. But this human necessity had been disproportionally denied our sisters—until Title IX was passed. In recent years, though, the landmark legislation has come under criticism. Organizations like the College Sports Council (CSC) claim that striving for women’s equality has unfairly resulted in numerous cuts to men’s sports programs. Wrestling, men’s gymnastics, and tennis are typically among the programs that leave men out in the cold. But before I flush out the facts, let’s cherish the history first.

    USA vs. The Rest of the World: How America Compares in Non-US Sports

    USA vs. The Rest of the World: How America Compares in Non-US Sports

    In terms of sport endeavour, the USA as a nation does come top of the pile. They always boss the Olympics when it comes around every four years, and are strong competitors in many other sports around the world. However, America is perhaps strongest at its own sports: namely American football, baseball and basketball. You can tell they’re so America-centric that when international games are played in those sports, America aren’t normally allowed to compete at their full strength. In the IFAF World Championships of American Football, the USA are only allowed to name amateur players and no professionals in the NFL. And they’ve still won the last three editions. But how do they fare on the world stage with multinational sports like soccer (association football), rugby and cricket? Let’s find out.

    How Much Is Too Much Competitive Youth Sports

    How Much Is Too Much Competitive Youth Sports

    You don’t have to go too far to hear parents lamenting the busy sports schedules they endure with their kids. I only wish I could have grown up in such a culture because there was an awful lot of sitting around in the 70s. Still, there must be a middle ground, and I wonder what the impact is when adults are always involved.

    The Role of Technology in the Future of the Sports Sector

    Do you ever just look at the simplest appliance, maybe even a toaster, and begin to wonder how the first people to invent it even came up with the idea? It’s overwhelming how far we’ve come since then. It’s still shocking to think about how vital a part technology plays in our lives.
