The Houston Texans have seemingly had a revolving door at quarterback this season, but it has benefited Case Keenum, one of college football’s most...

Ryan Mundy reminds us to make the most of every situation, even if the situation isn’t ideal. Mundy was leading the New York Giants in...

It sounds preposterous now—kind of like an era when carbs weren’t counted, phones weren’t smart and people didn’t tweet—but there was a time when Chris Davis considered quitting baseball. Davis, the Baltimore Orioles’ newly minted superstar, was fed up with the game by 2011. His promising major league debut with the Texas Rangers three years earlier at age 22 was a distant memory. A logjam of talent within the organization and his own inconsistencies at the plate...

For even the world's best athletes, the Olympics represent the chance of a lifetime. Years of sacrifice and training culminate in fleeting minutes, perhaps only seconds, of effort. And then…only one winner stands atop the award platform. Going for the gold is one thing. Getting it is another. Just ask Jim Ryun. Though not one, not two, but three Olympiads, he chased the gold. But every time he ran, its glitter remained just beyond his grasp… Click here to read the remainder of Jim Ryun's story in the Vol. 3, No. 2 (1989) issue of Sports Spectrum, which was then called Second Look.

Who won the Super Bowl last year? How about two years ago? Three? Four? Five? Six? Seven? If you could name each Super Bowl champion from the last seven years, I would be impressed. But my guess is that recalling the Super Bowl winner from two or three years ago was a struggle. Most people, outside of Indianapolis Colts fans, have forgotten that my teammates and I won a Super Bowl in 2006. That was six years ago...

(Originally published in Sports Spectrum's April 2013 DigiMag) We heard the same sermon twice on the Wednesday night we went to West Monroe, La.—and both were unexpected. We had just finished our interview with Miss Kay, Al, Willie and Phil Robertson, cast from the popular TV show, Duck Dynasty. It was interesting listening to Phil talk about sex and relationships, Willie talk about his early days when he and his wife, Korie...

Dylan Thompson had strings. He moved the right way. He said the right things. He danced across the stage and nailed his lines. He was a shell of a man, a marionette that moved but had no life inside. One day, the strings broke, his body fell, and he lay all twisted up and lifeless on stage. The lights went down. And the curtains closed...

Tony Romo has undergone a spiritual transformation the last few years (which we talk about on pages 40-43 of this issue). During that time, he has been mentored by godly men, gotten married, become a father and has seen what's most important in life. "One thing as I grow into a husband is being a spiritual leader of my family, my wife and the people I surround myself with," Romo told Sports Spectrum. "I heard John Wooden, the UCLA basketball coach for all those years, once said success is peace…"

A reporter asks Derek McCartney if he has anything else to say. He pauses, and thinks. “I guess I just have one request,” he says. “Yeah,” says the reporter. “In the past, when people have done articles on my family, they have described me and T.C. as ‘half-brothers...’”
