The NFL did it again. Only professional sports’ most powerful league could make the release of its schedule — by definition, a mundane activity — must-see television. And even with all the weekly matchups, sites and times revealed, there’s still much more to see. As always, some games (at least at this time of the […]

Commentary, Philadelphia Eagles, Super Bowl LII -

The United States of America’s attitude toward black people is best described with one word: violence.

It’s […]

In the midst of an 0-4 start to the 1972 season, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Harold Carmichael was about to embark on what would one day become known as “The Streak.” The second-year wideout probably didn’t think much of his lone, 21-yard reception in the Eagles’ 14-0 loss to Washington on Oct. 8, 1972, but […]
