Incognito, meet Justice Miller…PLEASE.

Incognito

Miami Dolphins' Richie Incognito has been bullying teammate Jonathan Martin with racial epithets and threats. When Martin stepped down from the team last week, someone on Facebook asked the question, “Is it bullying if both people are over 300 pounds?” Yes, it is. Because bullying is when someone uses his strength and meanness to intimidate another person. And strong, mean people come in large and small packages, and so do their victims. The great news is that unbullies also come in … [Read more...]

Ballard quits NFL for good…reasons

VIKINGS CHRISTIAN BALLARD

I read a great Man on the Run-type of story this week: Minnesota Vikings’ standout, Christian Ballard, just quit the NFL. A 24-year-old man living his childhood dream and making almost $700,000/yr. walked away from professional sports. Why? Other things mattered more.

You can’t make that time you lose with your friends and your loved ones. Time is … [Read more...]

Tebow, Burkhead, and Osborne

Tim Tebow

In a day when ship captains push aside women to leap into lifeboats, and when leaders of universities sit on their hands when they hear about the sexual abuse of children, and when no one in Washington will take responsibility for the death of four Americans in Benghazi…it’s refreshing to find an exemplar.

Laying The Smack Down

wrestletime

My nine-year-old son, Aidan, already has a few solid friendships. He and his buddies love to fish, hunt, swim, camp, catch snakes, and explore nature. But above all else, they love to wrestle. They remind me of a group bear cubs roughhousing in the Alaskan tundra–they literally snarl and growl as they take each other down over and over again. This love for wrestling made my son’s comment to me the other day a puzzle. … [Read more...]
