In fact, the first professional female skater, Patti McGee, was featured on the cover of Life magazine in May, 1954.

Mark Buehrle and other effective soft tossers in MLB

Mark Buehrle‘s fastball velocity wouldn’t excite most high school coaches, but he’s carved out a very solid major league career.

2014 NFL Draft grades

Grading an NFL Draft the day after its conclusion is largely an effort in futility. At the end of the day, it is very difficult to predict what first round picks will become Jamarcus Russells and which fifth rounders emerge as Richard Shermans.
