Suit Up

Part of the challenge of playing football is getting used to the gear. Running effectively in a helmet, shoulder pads, and a variety of other protective devices can feel awkward and clumsy at first.

Labor Day

On this holiday where we celebrate work, most of us get to celebrate with a day of rest. Of course, that isn’t true of most professional athletes.

We hear it often in post-game interviews in almost every sport. “I was just praying that I’d make that field goal . . . we really needed a win.” Or, “That last pit stop was really crucial . . . I was just praying my guys would get us to the front for this win.” Or, “As she was on…

My wife and I are currently in Australia where I have a couple of weeks of teaching assignments, and I once again have the opportunity (or challenge) to try and understand Australian Rules Football, or “Footy” as it is called down under. There is definitely more “foot” in Footy than there is in American football (which Aussies call “Gridiron”), but…
