  1. This color film shot in the stands at the 1939 Army-Navy game is pretty amazing (video)

    Mar 5, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT


    Pretty nice find by SportsbyBrooks, and I’m not sure what delights me more: the video (see below) of the 1939 Army-Navy football game, or the newspaper account of said game by the Charleston News and Courier. This was when sportswriting was sportswriting. Lead paragraph: Its hostile operations often shrouded in heavy fog, Navy won its…

    2013 European Athletics Indoor Championships - Day Three

    It kind of goes without saying that in pole vaulting, one minute you’re up and the next you’re down — but that applies emotionally as well as physically. Take Renaud Lavillenie, for example. He’s the world’s top active pole vaulter, and for a moment there at the European Indoor Championships on Sunday, he thought he…

    Who would have thought that a week-long visit with a totalitarian dictator would be so controversial? As you know, Dennis Rodman and North Korean leader Kim Jung-un are the bestest of pals now, and are probably Skyping as I write this. It all happened when Rodman visited North Korea last week in a series of…

    When pro athletes use their powers for good, it can be an inspiration to us all. And hopefully in the case of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, it can make a real difference. Rice wrote a touching statement on his Facebook page late Sunday on the tragic death of 12-year-old Bailey O’Neill, a Darby…

The fight occurred in a Quebec-based hockey league called the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey during a match between Cornwall and HC Carvena de Sorel-Tracy back on February 24th.
