New York City has a way of reminding you of the vast immensity of this world. I had never been to New York City, not until this week for Super Bowl XLVIII festivities. The closest I’d been before this week was a connecting flight at La Guardia this past fall, but the man giving me an aerial tour in the seat behind me could tell my brain got lost somewhere in the Hudson River below. For an Indiana kid who grew up with a cornfield in his back yard, NYC was a lot to handle...

Clyde Christensen is the quarterbacks coach for the Indianapolis Colts, the only team this season to beat the Denver Broncos (the NFL’s best offense of all time) and Seattle Seahawks (the NFL’s best defense this season). Sports Spectrum asked Christensen, “What are the keys to beating Denver and Seattle?”...

Protecting Peyton Manning, one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks in history, doesn’t come without bumps in the road. For Winston Justice, those bumps have been numerous. His storybook ascension started in high school, when Winston Justice started making his own decisions. Raised a Jehovah’s Witness, Justice defied his denomination’s edict to avoid organized athletics because it would expose children to “unwholesome associations” and started playing football when he was 16...

Keep going,” my editor said. “Okay,” I replied, as I veered from turning onto the street where the Sports Spectrum offices are located. We needed to get away. It was deadline week at Sports Spectrum, which means sleepless nights, burning eyes, and a terribly strange aroma in my office that smells like Panera coffee and Little Caesars pizza. During these weeks, my editor and I often find it helpful to get out of the office and drive around...

In one magical season that reads like an Oscar-winning movie script, Kurt Warner went from NFL quarterback wannabe--just two years ago he was a third-stringer who played in one game--to league and Super Bowl MVP. "He's a book, he's a movie, this guy," said St. Louis Rams former head coach Dick Vermeil after Warner led the Rams to their dramatic 23-16 victory in Super Bowl XXXIV by throwing for a record 414 yards. Well, the book's already out. It's Warner's autobiography, accurately titled All Things Possible. The movie? There's nothing in the works--yet--but if you take Rudy, Rock, and Field of Dreams, and roll them all into one, you'll get the idea what Kurt Warner: The Movie would be about. Read the rest of our feature on Kurt Warner from our November/December 2000 issue by clicking here...

Taylor Morton was a 14-year-old boy, innocent and impressionable, athletic and adventurous, a typical eighth grader whose biggest concern was sports…then maybe school…then maybe girls, whatever “girls” were. It was an Alabama April. Soon, school would be over. Soon, it would be summer. These were the summers of their youth that Taylor and his two younger brothers, Trent (12) and TJ (8) loved to conquer...
