Where Sports and Faith Connect.

Monthly Archives: February 2012

Yes, I know the Super Bowl is over, and I've returned from Indianapolis...but we're literally swimming in content from all the multimedia we gathered from the last week. That being said, we're going to post two more blogs: this one that features four Christians talking about their faith from the Super Bowl XLVI Champion New York Giants and another one tomorrow featuring interviews from the Athletes In Action Super Bowl breakfast. The Giants featured in the video below are defensive end Justin Tuck, cornerback Will Blackmon, wide receiver Isiah Stanback and tackle Selvish Capers. Tuck, who was featured in the Spring 2011 issue of Sports Spectrum, had three tackles in the Super Bowl along with New York's only two sacks. Blackmon returned a punt for four yards and a kick for 10 yards. Stanback and Capers are listed on the Giants' practice squad...

Seriously. 7 a.m. – Wake up and realize that’s the best dream I’d had in a long, long, time...

One of the coolest things on Media Day, at least for me, was having the opportunity to interview other members of the media. We talked to EPSN's Rick Reilly, Fox Sports' Dan Patrick, Sports Illustrated's Peter King, NBC's Tony Dungy (yes, he’s media now), and at the media party last night at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I had the opportunity to sit down with one of my favorite journalists, Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz.
