I don't watch "Dancing With the Stars". In fact, I'm not that big on reality shows overmuch. When it was announced that former NY Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor would be the latest NFL player to compete on the ABC series, I wondered if he would, like old rivals Emmitt Smith & Jerry Rice, among others, be there at the end. Last night, the answer was no.
Taylor, the original "LT" to NFL fans, was voted off the dance floor, leaving six contestants left, including

Series host Tony Reali has over the last several months gone out of his way to favor regular panelist Woody Paige. The Denver Post columnist became a fan favorite while appearing on ESPN2's "Cold Pizza" and its spin-off, "1st & Ten", but the veteran sportswriter also has a tendency
Up until a few years ago, I only knew Harry Kalas as the in house narrator for NFL Films. It wasn't until, well, the last decade or so that I found out about his other gig as the play-by-play voice of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Today, the Phillies, and the sports world in general, is mourning the loss of Kalas, who was found "passed out" in the broadcast booth prior to a game Sunday vs. Washington. While I haven't heard or read of an official cause of death, I have to assume
