Two-time world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist George Foreman turns 64 today, and his greatest gift to us very well may be his “lean, mean, fat-reducing” machine.

Happy New Year! We’re halfway through the season, closing in on the final three World Cup races and the world championships. I’ve got to say, this season has had its ups and downs for me.

Many assume the majority of sports-related knee injuries occur due to direct contact -- as was the case with the blow Nancy Kerrigan suffered 19 years ago today in the whack heard ’round the world -- but studies prove otherwise.
When UConn and Notre Dame tip off this afternoon, it will be the ninth time the women's basketball rivals have met in the past three seasons. The wins have been split evenly, and there have been some doozies.
Every year for Christmas my family heads eight hours north to enjoy the snow at Lake Tahoe. It has been a tradition for years because it is the one time we all can get together as a family and enjoy each other’s company.
Tonight's Cotton Bowl reminds us to salute one of the most important piece of equipment for any female athlete -- the sports bra.
