Remember when the Bears played the Lions on Monday Night Football a few weeks ago? The third presidential debate was that night, too, and there was a great divide across the entire nation. No one knew which to watch, and I understand why. After all, what’s more American: democracy or football? It’s a good question...

There’s a stairwell that leads to a lonely apartment on Hinesley Avenue, down the street from Hinkle Fieldhouse. Rotnei Clarke, one of the nation’s top college basketball players, used to crawl up the stairs to the second floor, casts on his feet, questions on his mind, doubts flying like arrows over the walls of his soul...

When you grow up a Zeller, you have some big shoes to fill. And it’s not just because Luke and Tyler wear size 18 and 19 shoes, respectively. The eldest brother, Luke, led Washington High School to an Indiana Class 3A championship, swooshing a miracle heave from mid-court his senior season in 2005.

NBA superstar Kevin Durant and the Thunder came up short in the NBA Finals last year, but he has a promising future and leads a quiet life as he seeks to walk closer with the Lord. When Kevin Durant signed an extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder on July 7, 2010, he did so with virtually no fanfare save an understated, yet highly grateful message to the fans via Twitter. That extension was later revealed to be for five years and roughly $86 million...
