Tackling Football’s Dark Side

If baseball is America’s pastime, then football is her guilty pleasure. Sure, it’s thrilling. But it’s also really fucking violent. It encourages players to muscle through concussions, and it encourages them to hate. Colossal, the spectacular play premiering at the Cohen New Works Festival, tackles these skeletons head-on.

'The Voice in My Head': Requiem for a Dream Season

Most revelers from Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans have returned to the rat race – although some are still MIA. The media circus folded-up the big top and departed the Crescent City in one tiny satellite truck, and Mom and Dad treated John to the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium while Jim was banished to the hot car to think about what he’d done.

'The Voice in My Head': A Super Bowl for the Birds?

Of the four NFL cities still holding out hope for a Super Bowl championship, the “Massholes” are again the safe bet. We know these Massholes all too well: they’re cocky, quarrelsome, and screamed point-blank in our daughter’s face once – making us all very sad. Read More | Comment »

Ballad of Tony Romo: Goat or Accidental Shaman

Tony Romo must really love his house and the golf course and the girlfriends who became the wife. He seemingly can’t wait to get back to the off-season year after year, as he blew another one on Sunday against Washington.

Watt and Peterson Flirt With History

Texans Face Patriots in 'Historic' Game

Houston played another less-than-perfect game last week and came out on top 24-10. It was against a lesser opponent in the Tennessee Titans. There are going to be many games like that for this team in the coming years, because the Texans are one of the best teams in the NFL and they are built to stay that way for years to come.
