This 5-year-old, JP Gibson, gets the best surprise he can ever imagine. JP is a big basketball fan and his favorite team is the Utah Jazz.
He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Knowing that, the Utah Jazz organization set up something extra special for him. They signed JP to a one-day contract for a special scrimmage Monday night.
He got to wear his own jersey and play with the team as if they were playing a real game. One of the Jazz players made his day even more special when he lifted him up to dunk the ball! more >>
It's tempting to make this a two-word column and simply write – THE NFL'S BASTARD PROBLEM: ROGER GOODELL, but that's not the type of illegitimacy to which I'm referring.
The NFL has a problem with illegitimate children and they're pretending it doesn't exist. For example, in the latest inquisition regarding Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson, we were told that the issue is domestic abuse in the form of child abuse. So the debate must center on questions like: "Is spanking a child abuse?" "Should he have used an open hand and not a switch?" "Is there a minimum age for corporeal punishment?" "Should the NFL act prior to his day in court?"
But no one is talking about the fact that Adrian Peterson has 6 or 7 kids with multiple women who are not his wife. I say 6 or 7 because his mother, who says that Adrian is a "good Christian boy," tells us that her son has 6 kids, while a stripper from Houston and one of Adrian's "Baby-Mamas" reported that Adrian has 7 kids and as far as she knows, treats them all well because he pays child support. more >>
The New England Patriots are scheduled to fight against the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 6 on 8:30 p.m. EST at the Gillette Stadium at the Foxborough, Massachusetts. The Patriots have 2-2 on their record while the Bengals have a flawless 3-0.
While the win-loss ratio for the Patriots have equalized, statistics indicate that New England's offense have been pretty bad for the past four games. This could mean the worst season for the Patriots.

The San Francisco 49ers is scheduled to fight against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 6 at 4:25 p.m. EST at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. With their incoming match this Monday experts are already out with their predictions and analysis on both teams. Both the 49ers and the Chiefs have 2-2 under their belts and both will need the win to keep hanging onto the chance of a playoffs.
The 49ers had a much-needed victory against the Philadelphia Eagles to keep them in the season, however, their offense and special teams were lacking even after being saved by their defense plays. Against the Chiefs they will need to step up their offense and defense if they don't want to lose their chance at playing in the playoffs.
The Chiefs also face a similar scenario where they need a win against the 49ers to secure their place in the playoffs. In week 1 they were defeated by the Tennessee Titans and then by the Denver Broncos before acquiring wins agaisnt the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots. more >>
The much awaited bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao has been in the airwaves for years now and fans of either parties are wondering if the fight is ever going to happen.

Recently, legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard has spoken out about his thoughts on the possibility of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Leonard says that above all else, it would be principle that is now pushing the dial of demand for a bout between the two fighters. more >>
The NBA season is only weeks away and team are already preparing their teams for the coming matchups. The Boston Celtics coach, Brad Stevens, wants his team to be faster with more passing, more ball control, and more freewheeling style. For contrast, the Celtics finished in 17th place last year.
"I want more aggression on sets overall, offensively and defensively. More pressure, more pace," Stevens said earlier this week as he prepared his team for training camp.
It would look as if Stevens wants to put more pressure on his team, but the players understand his demands and aren't forced to make the changes. more >>
