"I mean, I wake up tired, almost. But I still have dreams from time to time that I'm in the game, Charley Johnson is always the quarterback, I'm always running off tackle, catching a screen, returning a punt or a kickoff. I don't know, maybe I still have those dreams because so many have come true."

Wesseling: 10 NFL rookies who’ll shine, and 10 who’ll stink - NFL- nbcsports.msnbc.com
A big, physical receiver providing breakaway speed, deep-ball skills, and a presence in the red zone, Mike Williams’ circus catches appeared to vault him past second-rounder Arrelious Benn in offseason practices. The Bucs will open up the two starting receiver spots to competition next month, and it’s possible both rookies will win out. With a better grasp of the offense and more natural ability, Williams is a better than Benn to emerge as the No. 1 receiver.

Fabio Periera: Ten Minutes With Eric Wing
In 2005 I picked the Chicago White Sox to win and around the same time I had Syracuse winning the NCAA tournament.

Federal judge who rules cheerleading is not a sport under Title IX should toss his decision
After being accepted into Syracuse University last year, I participated in a D1 cheerleading tryout. The three-day tryouts were extremely painful and challenging. The coaches for the college squad were looking for girls who were very advanced in gymnastics and stunting; they were looking for nothing less than greatness.
