Mike Moran — The USOC Finds Its Way Home Again

By Mike Moran The release this week of the USOC‘s Independent Advisory Committee on Governance (The Tagliabue Commission), delivered a cogent moment for me and others long connected to the Olympic movement, and a familiar refrain at the same time……….how striking it is that it would be two notable professional sports figures who would, almost two decades apart, craft a report that would alter the direction and mission of the organization…………..first, George Steinbrenner in 1989 ...

LOVELAND, Colo. - The Colorado Eagles fell again to the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs, by an identical 4-3 score, in Game 2 of the Northern Conference Semifinals.

Opposite of Friday night, the Eagles dominated the first period shot total, out-shooting the Mudbugs 21-9. Unlike ... Full Story

There are scents discovered in six decades of life so deeply absorbed into my consciousness that they can be coaxed back to reality in a blink……………the memory from high school dances and proms of the esoteric White Shoulders perfume worn by Bobby Soxed girls, or the heady aroma of the Omaha Stockyards (the nation’s biggest!) borne on the gentle winds of spring to our front porch, or the enduring aura of printer’s ink at my father’s modest plant near downtown, now a clothing drop ...
