Volleyball: The Defensive Presence - Part 1

This series is dedicated to what seems to be a dying focus in sports: Defense. I'm going to stick to what I know best and that is volleyball. As a coach and player, it kills me to see balls hit the floor without an effort to pick it up. This series outlines the dedication needed to be outstanding in your defensive assignments. 

      Defense isn’t all about getting digs, diving, and making the spectacular play. Are these important? Absolutely. Are they what you should judge your defense on?

One of the Best Exercises is Often Done Incorrectly

This week’s “Nor’Easter”, I use the quotation marks because, as we New Englanders know, a true Nor’Easter features a slightly different type of precipitation than the weather event predicted for this week, got me really yearning for the real thing. I usually shy away from doing articles that feature exercises as the main subject, but I am making an exception here. I have recently been scanning my favorite snow sport websites and magazines, and noticed common workouts and exercises touting their effectiveness at getting riders ready for the season across many of them.

2016 UEFA European Championship has begun

Qualifiers for the 2016 UEFA European Championship began last week and have already featured some last-minute victories and unexpected upsets. The 53 European and Asian nations are competing for a spot in the championship, which is held every four years and is arguably the second most prestigious tournament, below only the World Cup. Qualification will go until November 2015 to determine the 23 teams that will join Euro 2016 host-county France, which qualifies automatically.

Let the Season Begin!

OK, sports fans, European soccer leagues are in full swing! The English Premier League is off to a very interesting start with some unexpected teams sitting higher, and some lower, then one might guess. Chelsea is playing the best ball in the league so far, sitting at the top if the table even without Frank Lampard (who was traded to Manchester City). Manchester United and Liverpool’s performances have both been below the standard of play we’re used to expecting, but we do have plenty of season left.

The NFL is Willing to Push as Far as We are Willing to Look Away

The Iran-Contra Affair, the Vietnam War, Global Terrorism, Enron, the Penn State Sexual Abuse Scandal, and the 2014 NFL Criminal Saga all have a common constituent element, and it is not one that would come easily to the mind: activism. That’s the good news.       

 The American constituency spoke up against the ICA and the Pentagon Papers were published, wanted to end the Vietnam War so they marched on Washington and flipped federal momentum. 9/11 allegedly indicated some issue with Iraq, so we took them to war.
