The injury saga of Derrick Rose has been a tough one to follow for those that empathise with the plight of the Bulls' talented point man. It's not as easy, however, for us to relate to the front office in Chicago. What is life like when the heart of your franchise goes down for an entire season -- or more? The injury to David Robinson that led to San Antonio drafting Tim Duncan was one of the most impactful twists

It wasn't quite Vince-Young-over-USC good, but last night's finish that saw Florida State steal a national championship from Auburn and the SEC -- in one word, 'Wow!'

College football isn't like its professional sibling in regard to parity as much as we like to think it is. So when two evenly-matched teams square off and the game comes down to the final minute -- that's what championship

Sure, America's economy isn't what it used to be, but football fans have never been more ravenous for their sport. Yet tickets are sitting on cold Midwestern shelves and are at historically low prices for tonight's BCS championship game between Florida State and Auburn. So what gives?

It's the final game of the 2013-14 college football season and the final hurrah for the infamous BCS system. It's

Maybe Bob Stoops knew what he was talking about. The SEC may field the top team in the nation each year, but the rest of the bunch appears to be just as vulnerable on a neutral field with the nation's other elite teams -- especially their quarterbacks. And what happened to the vaunted Alabama defense? Forty-five points surrendered to Oklahoma, thirty-eight on the shoulders of the staunch Crimson Tide defense.

September is a long way from now, but unofficial reports have surfaced that point towards a September bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. For months, both sides have postured and fired verbal shots towards the other as numerous attempts to schedule a fight between the two continued to fall through.

Both are set to return to the ring for separate matchups sometime in April or May. This

Where do we draw the line in post-game corrections? According to the NFL, an apology is all that is given when officials miss calls that determine playoff qualifiers, but stats and records can be shifted arbitrarily to fix missteps by official scorers.

Peyton Manning's seven-yard pass to Eric Decker at the end of the first half may be reversed to reflect a running play since the pass appears to have been a backwards lateral.

It always feels good seeing highlights of the year's best plays or moments. But maybe none of your favorite stars or teams gave you anything to cheer about in 2013. To paraphrase a certain brewing company in St. Louis, Missouri: This one's for you!

If you count yourself among the loyalists to the Knicks, Spurs, Bulls, the health of Kobe Bryant or Derrick Rose,

Jason Garrett is by no means the world's greatest head coach -- but then again, is he even really in charge of his own team? Tony Romo is reportedly out for the rest of the regular season with a back injury. That is, unless you're the omnipresent Jerry Jones who has decided to interject by stating that Romo may actually not be done just yet.

Jones owns the team and likely will never "fire"

With one week to go, Peyton Manning already owns the single-season record for passing touchdowns (51). I posed the question last week regarding your thoughts on the emerging offensive explosion within the NFL -- to which many are not a fan -- Tom Brady, however, is very impressed.

Granted, Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks

Kobe Bryant has had a brilliant career and despite how it ends, his legacy will likely go untarnished. Still, it's difficult to watch his basketball days wind down with a lack of grace. After a devastating achilles injury last season, The Black Mamba is down again -- this time for six weeks with a bum knee -- but what happens when he returns? Another injury?

There are a wide variety of ways

The first glimpse at one of the NBA's so-called "nickname" jerseys was unveiled by Spike Lee on his Instagram account yesterday. The image shows the jersey that Ray Allen will wear when the Celtics and Heat match up on January 21st. Allen will don "J. Shuttlesworth" across the back of his uni, a reference to Jesus Shuttlesworth -- Allen's character from Lee's 1998 movie "He Got Game."

The NBA plans additional games in March and April
