Richie Incognito, Redskins and Racism in the NFL
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
"Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake." -Russell Means, Natural Born Killers Irritatingly, the "Richie Incongito Is a Bully" and the "Richie Incognito Said the Word 'Nigger'" storyline has been dominating the ESPN Sportscenter episodes recently. Just as my Seahawks get good enough to command serious national attention, some idiot who is considered an "honorary black man" by many of his fellow Miami Dolphins teammates simultaneously has 1) Shannon Sharpe crying like an infant; 2) white liberals judging this white man as if he were the first and only white man that has ever said this word; and 3) black folks upset.

The Art and Style of Katrina
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Eight years ago, during the unforgettable summer of 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravished through the Gulf Coast. We, along with many other New Orleans residents, were forced to relocate to nearby Houston, Texas. After Katrina we saw many new businesses in New Orleans face inevitable failure. During the two years that we spent in Houston, we came together to develop a lifestyle brand that reflected the cultural influences of New Orleans and our love of high end fashion and couture. What we produced was a rare and eclectic collection we call "Jerk and Jon." We returned to New Orleans in 2007 with "Jerk and Jon," a business plan and even more tenacity. Our unique design style and custom made pieces began to create a buzz through the music, sports and entertainment industry. We had the fortune of working with the likes of Jackie Jackson, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Kerri Hilson and Elise Neal. However, we wanted to find a way to share our fashion experiences with the city of New Orl...

Huffington Post - over 4 years
Evelyn Lozada wants fans to know she has been reborn. Bent but not broken by her turbulent past, the 37-year-old reality star covers Latina’s August issue with a simple message beside her: “I made a decision to change.” HuffPo got an exclusive look inside the magazine, set to hit newsstands on July 9, in which Lozada reveals details about “the incident” with former NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and her plans to start a foundation to help other domestic violence victims. In the interview with Latina, the Puerto Rican star recounts the moments of fear after Johnson head-butted her over a receipt for condoms she had found in their car. The “Basketball Wives” star required six stitches on her forehead as a result of what she has dubbed “the incident;” physical marks that she now credits for her actions. “...what’s sad is that if that day, if I didn’t have physical wounds, I probably would’ve walked right into that house because I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to ...

Hank Koebler: Aaron Hernandez Arrest: End of an Era in New England
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
The opening of a first-degree murder case against recently released tight end Aaron Hernandez is likely also the closing of the New England Patriots' window to win another Super Bowl with quarterback Tom Brady under center. The Patriots' release of Hernandez on Wednesday ended questions about the troubled 23-year-old's future with the team but raised many more questions about the direction in which New England's offense is heading. With Hernandez off the team and fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly set to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, the Patriots' offensive identity has completely eroded in one offseason. The focal point of New England's offense since 2010 has been the Patriots' two-tight end sets. By drafting both Hernandez and Gronkowski that year, the Patriots were able to spend the next three seasons moving both of their tight ends all over the field to create a plethora of mismatches for opposing defenses. The mismatches cre...

My wife, a career fashionista, has a name for grown men who actually appear attractive when adorned in a sports jersey. She calls them "professional athletes!" Spring is in full swing, major league baseball is upon us, the NHL and NBA playoffs are on the horizon, and millions of American male adults are shedding their winter jackets to once again reveal their beloved authentic and replica sports jerseys. It's perfectly understandable when an adolescent wears the faux uniform of Robert Griffin III (currently the most popular NFL jersey according to NFLShop.com -- followed by Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers garments), Derek Jeter (MLB's top replica sales according to USA Today), Claude Giroux (currently the most vogue NHL player jersey as per the NHL Director of Communications), or Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James (the top two NBA garb grabbers says NBA Store).

The 10 Strangest Diets In Sports History
Business Insider - over 5 years
Earlier this week, wrestler/actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson tweeted out his "cheat meals," which consisted of 12 pancakes, four "double dough" pizzas, and 21 brownies -- all in one day.  This might seem like an insane amount of food for one man to eat, but considering The Rock presumably works out all the time, one day of extremely unhealthy eating shouldn't destroy his body. In the entire history of sports, though, there have been professional athletes who have won championships and titles while living off of a diet consisting mostly of "cheat meals."  From an Olympic gold medalist eating McDonald's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to a UFC champion drinking his own urine like its coffee, we present to you the strangest eating habits of professional athletes.
