Losing with Class: An Analysis of Cam Newton, the Person

Alright, now that the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared, we have our Super Bowl winners: the Denver Broncos.

After Super Bowl win, Peyton Manning needs to take Denver’s defense to dinner.

Just a short post following Denver’s Super Bowl win… Peyton Manning is likely going to call it a career after winning his 2nd Super Bowl. He didn’t play especially well. Manning was just 13 for 23 for 141 yards with 2 Turnovers, but he doesn’t have to apologize for anything. He is a Super Bowl …

Louisville proves their commitment to football with fundraising campaign.

The Cardinal’s recent announcement of their fundraising effort for their stadium expansion is just another example of this.   I think the emphasis on corporate sponsors is a smart move by Louisville as well. …
