  • Once upon a time, Michael Vick and Ralph Sampson were Johnny Manziel

    Masters is so much more than golf, and that's the way it should be
    AUGUSTA, Ga. — It was a quiet, nondescript moment deep in the pine trees at the end of a sunny practice round. It was a moment unspoiled by smartphones or smart alecks. It was the perfect Masters moment. At a spot where fans could cross the 18th...
  • Black athletes are not charity cases

    WASHINGTON -- The outrageously bigoted remarks attributed to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team mock the positive role black athletes have played in professional sports, even as those sports have served as an exit ramp from poverty....

     Barry Scheck on the O.J. trial, DNA evidence and the Innocence Project
    The O.J. Simpson case, which began to unfold 20 years ago this month, was a blip — a significant one, but a blip — in Barry Scheck's legal career. Scheck is now better known as co-founder of the Innocence Project, the not-for-profit...
