The halls of Jesuit, like much of the rest of America, this week have been filled with chatter pertaining to this Sunday’s upcoming Super Bowl match-up, the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. Some Cowboys gripe about their NFC East rivals, while others wish for the downfall of the dynastic Patriots. Whether it is for the great commercials, a...

After effortlessly faking a drive, dropping Kawhi Leonard, and pump-faking a three, Stephen Curry steps back and knocks down a contested jumper. This play would have made highlight tapes even if a lesser defender had been guarding Curry, but it was the leading candidate of Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard?

We have actually gotten as close...
On Friday, February 17th, at 7 p.m. ET, ESPN will broadcast the 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game live from Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA. This event is usually met with extremely average attention, but I think the NBA can change that with a few wise selections in this year's game. The newly-available and potential players for this year's...
Towards the beginning of the NFL season, I wrote an article that posed the question of who should be the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, the rookie sensation Dak Prescott or the seasoned veteran Tony Romo. Now, this question has been answered. Tony Romo recently held a press conference where he announced that he would be handing the starting...
