Some of the Paterno Report findings are shocking, and may radically alter the way in which many have viewed the case, and the legacy of a legendary coach:
Somebody has to do something to make the coach understand that the goal of the regular season is not to pile up wear and tear on a team’s most important veteran players.
I’m not really sure what any of that was, but I damn well know I liked it.
A year removed from the experience, we tend to forget that consuming the Super Bowl can be a chore if not handled correctly.
This Blackhawks season is missing something.

Presented here to help you do that is a field guide based on my observations of every holiday party I have attended since 1995. These are some ideas for what not to be.
Despite those holding out for an inspired, season-saving turn at home against their overly-professed enemy, we got a wholly recognizable, ordinary performance and an entirely probable outcome.
This is neither endorsement nor indictment of Lovie Smith.
Slam. Click. That’s the Bears’ much-discussed championship window, closed and locked. Sealed until further notice.
