Predators prove hockey can work in South

So Nashville is in the Stanley Cup Final. And folks said hockey doesn't work in the South after the Atlanta Thrashers debacle. It's just more proof that ownership, not location, doomed the Thrashers, something the NHL fails to realize.

Shiny new SunTrust Park’s time has come

So here we are, opening day at SunTrust Park. Opening day for one of the first stadiums to be built as part of a “ballpark village” concept. People like what’s new and what’s sparkling, but will they like driving to and from the park?

Additional signing periods good for early football commits

The NCAA has proposed adding signing periods in June and December for football, giving high schoolers a chance to set aside recruiting pressure. And while that’s a good step, incoming players should also have the opportunity to void their national letter-of-intent should their head coach or position coach leave before the player arrives on campus.
