While Tim Tebow, 27, has been selected by People magazine as one of 2014's Sexiest Men Alive, he admits that being deemed attractive is not his focus.
"Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance, but more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart," he told People. "To me, it's especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that's something that's sexy about people."
The evangelical Christian football star turned SEC college football analyst, has made work with his Tim Tebow foundation a priority. The foundation builds playrooms in children's hospitals all over the world, grants sick children's wishes and works to aid in the process of adoption. more >>
Adrian Peterson has given an in-depth interview for the first time since being indicted last Sept. for severely beating his four-year-old son in as an act of discipline.
The 29-year-old Minnesota Vikings running back made headlines last September when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him with the ability to continue with the 2014-2015 NFL season, the league officially decided he would remain suspended without pay.
Now, Peterson has spoken to USA Today about the incident, saying that he believed he would play in the NFL again. Still, he insists he learned from the situation and would never use a switch as a form of discipline again. more >>
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been sidelined once more for six weeks after breaking down during training Monday. It has been the second time this season that he has injured a muscle but the team's medical staff are digging the player's medical records to figure out why he has gone down with the injury twice in the same season.
The team's manager Brendan Rodgers believes that Monday's misshap is Sturridge's ninth injury involving his left thigh over the past few years. The England training regime was initially blamed for the player's predicament but it is looking to be a much deeper problem.
"We reckon it's his ninth injury on the same thing from previous clubs here and there. So there seems to be an underlying issue somewhere. Our medical team are looking into it, the latest scans show a slight tear just below where he had a previous injury," Rodgers says. more >>
The return of LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers could be attributed to a number of reasons and there have been notions that the San Antonio Spurs are partly to blame. The Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich doesn't quite sit well with those allegations. He was asked about those notions Wednesday during a practice for their game against the Cavaliers yesterday.
"Nothing. You guys have to have something to say. I'd be saying the same stuff if I had your job… It's cool," Popovich said.
Afterwards, the coach was then asked if he was surprised when James went home to Cleveland after the Spurs defeated the Miami Heat in the finals 4-1. more >>
Adrian Peterson may have avoided jail time after pleading no-contest in the case of assaulting his son, but the football star may be in another legal battle with the NFL as league officially ruled this week that he will not return to the field this season.
The 29-year-old Minnesota Vikings running back made headlines last Sept. when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him with the ability to continue with the 2014-2015 NFL season, the league officially decided he would remain suspended without pay.
The NFL released a statement on Tuesday, making it clear that Peterson could not be considered to be reinstated back into the league before April, after he violated the league's personal conduct policy. He was reportedly notified on the same day as the public, Tuesday, that there would be stipulations that had to be followed before he could even be considered for a reinstatement in the league. more >>
