  • Is J.J. Watt Already Hall Of Fame-Bound?

    CBS SF BAY AREA ^ | 30 SEPTEMBER 2016 | JASON KEIDEL
    It’s rare that the football world gasps over midweek injury report in September. Especially when that player is a defensive lineman, who toils in the meat-pile anonymity of the trenches. But J.J. Watt is a rare football player. Watt, widely regarded as the NFL’s best defensive player, had surgery on his back yesterday, and will be out for the rest of the season. And considering the violent nature of pro football, his rabid pass-rushing style and the precarious nature of back injuries, some wonder if Watt will ever return, at least to his all-world form.

    The Swedish government has proposed a ban on the wearing of masks by spectators at sporting events in an effort to stem fan violence, but exceptions will be made for religious garments like burqas. The proposal comes at a time where a number of high-profile violent incidents at Swedish football matches have made global headlines. In August, a match between Jönköpings Södra and Östersund was called off when a masked supporter ran onto the pitch and assaulted Östersund goalkeeper Aly Keita. […] A number of exceptions to the ban are mentioned in the proposal, including covering of the face due...

    American tennis player Serena Williams took to Facebook on Tuesday to say she "won't be silent" about race relations and tension with police. Williams, 35, said she had the moment of reflection while riding with her 18-year-old nephew. She wrote that she saw a cop on the side of the road and checked to make sure her nephew was driving at the speed limit, prompting her to think about the case of Philando Castile, who was shot after being pulled over in Minnesota.

    The Week ^ | September 21, 2016 | Anthony L. Fisher
    Te retirement tour of Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is nearing its emotional conclusion, and the universal praise for the accomplishments of perhaps the most beloved ballplayer ever to call Fenway Park home has been lavished on Big Papi from opposing teams, fans, and a press corps that has long elevated the slugger to folk hero status. You can't argue with Ortiz's legacy in Boston. He was a monster producer in all three of their World Series championships since breaking an 86-year "curse" in 2004, including a number of iconic game-winning hits, and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of...

    College football Saturdays are back, so let's stop and ponder a journalism mystery linked to the new football coaching regime at the University of Virginia. The feature at The Daily Progress in Charlottesville is pretty direct, starting with the headline: "Part of the Bronco way is no work on Sunday." Bronco is not a reference to a mascot, in Wahoo land, but to the school's new head coach – Bronco Mendenhall. Things are not off to a good start there, so times are a bit tense. Here is the overture: The day after Virginia’s season-opening loss to Richmond, Ruffin McNeill,...

    Traveling by train to the 1937 National Open Championship in Denver, Ben Hogan decided that he would keep his hands in shape during the train ride by special exercise and so he bought a hard rubber ball for the trip. All the way to Colorado he kept working the ball, squeezing it and then relaxing his grip. He repeated the process over and over again all the way to Colorado. But when the morning of the first round of the tournament arrived he couldn't control a single shot. He had lost all sense of "feel" in his hands, which is...

The Marching Owl Band mocked Baylor for the multiple sexual assault allegations that rocked the program earlier this year. The furor led to the firing of head coach Art Briles, as well as the demotion, and the eventual resignation, of university president Ken Starr.
