There is arrogance in sports. And then there is arrogance without cause in sports.
This is very unique. It’s pretty awkward. It’s a little embarrassing, to be honest.
Former NFL cornerback Ray McElroy says one particular play that knocked him to the ground made him realize it’s important to always get up.

Yasiel Puig’s first 60 games as a major leaguer have been very exciting. He’s hitting .370, driven in 27 runs in his first 250 at-bats and the Los Angeles Dodgers have gone from under .500 to a team on pace for 100-plus wins since he arrived in early June.
Full disclosure to start: I had the Los Angeles Dodgers dead and buried in June. Done. Over. Even with the phenomenon that is Yasiel Puig; even with Ian Kennedy poking the big, blue bear with a sharp stick at just the wrong moment with two of the most ill-timed beanballs in baseball history.

Superman had hardly cleared Hollywood airspace before the rumors of the next Los Angeles Lakers superstar acquisitions began. And as always, the dreams are as big as California:
Everyone likes a player who is an overachiever, team player, good PR guy for the franchise and media friendly. Jared “J.D.” Dudley was all that in Phoenix. I hate to see him leave here and wish the Suns could have packaged all the free agents Lance Blanks brought here who were “me oriented” and overpaid from last year. Performance and chemistry is what J.D. brings to a team. The Clippers get a star player that might bring them an NBA championship, in my opinion.
A few hours after being named the new girls basketball coach at powerhouse St. Mary's on Wednesday, former WNBA veteran Coco Miller withdrew from the position.
In one way it appears the 2013 NBA Draft broke just right for the Phoenix Suns. In another way, it didn’t.
Yes, it is possible. You can pursue the American dream. And maybe even be on your way to achieving it by age 11. That won’t necessarily stop comments by racists or cretins who think it’s cool and intelligent to stereotype, belittle and insult. But they can’t stop a proud and determined kid from marching, head held high, straight towards that American dream.
