You get a TD, and you get a TD, and everyone gets a TD

That’s why I love college football. Yes, I’m talking about Southern California’s 52-49 win over Penn State on Monday, in which the Trojans held a two-score lead in the first half, then came back from a two-point...

Football and Turkey Day go hand-in-hand-in-drumstick

Sports are just as important a Thanksgiving tradition as turkey and tryptophan. For what seems like forever, Thanksgiving Day has consisted of food and football. It just wouldn’t be the same without the NFL games in Dallas...
