Autism Awareness Blog Hop ~ Remembrance of Toys Past

63% of children on the autism spectrum are not in the kind of school their parents believe would best support them.Does this statement surprise you? I would guess that the percentage is much, much higher. Each student on the spectrum demonstrates different strengths, abilities, communication, and social skills—just to cite a few examples. Schools that take an individualized approach to teaching to a student’s strengths are a luxury few can afford.

Lance Armstrong. America’s Last Hero?

Sometime in the last decade or two (or three), a significant shift in American culture replaced the celebration of extraordinary accomplishments with a cynical desire to bring the person down, to discover a chink in the armor, a sensational scandal, a story worthy of...

Are You Out of Your Minds, NHL? Lockout? Seriously?

Not digging what's happening over in the NHL these days. After a season that exceeded all expectations—even for this fan without a team—we begin to hear rumblings of a possible lockout and work stoppage as owners and players seek a new CBA by September 15. Collective...

Chicks Really, Really Dig the Bad Boys

“Bad Boys”—you know, the guys you do NOT want to like, but just can’t help yourself. Those edgy, competitive guys who push the envelope—on and off the field, the court, the track, the ice—and sometimes wander just a little too close to that thin line that separates bad boys from Boys Behaving Badly. Honestly, if it weren’t for bad boys, would we really enjoy the sport(s)?

The Little Peleton That Could… or Waiting for Godot?

Watching the opening stages of the 2012 Tour de France, you just had that feeling something dramatic would erupt from the Peleton once it arrived in the mountains. Besides the usual drama of first week crashes and hotly contested sprint finishes, the Alps and...

Chicks Dig Heroes in Training—All Just Fun and Games

Lance Armstrong: Deja Vu All Over Again?

I wear a yellow LiveStrong bracelet 24/7/365. Ever since Nike first released the original batch of 1,000,000 back in 2004. Always in support of someone I knew who was fighting cancer. Sometimes I'd sport two or three bands in particularly difficult times. The mantra...

This is No April Fool’s Joke. Seriously.

Like any self-respecting Atlanta sports fan, I have an instinctive, virulent, extremely strong dislike for any sports team bearing a NY logo. Doesn't matter: Mets... Knicks... Giants... Islanders... especially the Yankees. Don't like them. Never have. Never will....

Piling on? First ESPN, Now Forbes….

Forbes' Tom Van Riper just named Atlanta America's Most Miserable Sports Town. Seriously. We climbed to First Place in the magazine's ranking, after languishing in second place last year. You can read the article in its entirety here, but don't feel too smug—if you...

February Got You Down? Think NHL, ACC Basketball, and NASCAR

Face it, the month of February doesn't have a whole lot going for it. In the Northern Hemisphere, it's the middle of winter—grey, dull, and depending on the mood of Punxsutawney Phil (or General Beauregard Lee down here in the South), we may face more gloom. It's one...

What the NHL Can Teach Major League Baseball…

Last week's NHL All Star Weekend was a blast! Usually, All Star festivities are a bit boring and predictable. Baseball's summer classic is a glorified popularity contest and the once-electrifying Home Run Derby lost its appeal about the time we woke up and...
