Friday Night Lights Out: Russell Davis has been called a "dork," a "pussy," a "gay," and a "nanny state liberal" who's "almost as krazy as Hillary" .... the reason Davis has attracted attention and ire is simple: he wants to eliminate public high school football.

Last Chance U: the college that gives young players a final route to the NFL: "The tiny town of Scooba sits in Kemper County in the vast state of Mississippi. Its quiet streets are home to under a thousand permanent residents and there is little excitement to be found. An isolated Subway sandwich shop is the social hub. East Mississippi Community College stands incongruously in Scooba’s streets. The college houses some of the country’s finest student American football players who dream of making the NFL. They find themselves in sleepy Scooba for two reasons: their grades aren’t up to scratch or they need more playing time to prove themselves to larger colleges. For almost all of the players on the Lions’ playing roster, this is their last chance at football redemption." Their story is also a Netflix documentary.

Video games are changing how professional soccer is played:: "Ibrahimovic said that he would “often spot solutions in the games that I then parlayed into real life” as a young player. Mats Hummels, the Bayern Munich and Germany defender, has suggested that “maybe some people use what they learn in FIFA when they find themselves on a pitch.”

The Great Sports Myth: the widespread assumption that sport is, inherently, a force of good—despite the fact that it can both empower and humiliate, build bonds and destroy them, blur boundaries and marginalize.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Tom Brady's 2017 Superbowl Jersey found .... in Mexico. Also found: his jersey from 2015 Superbowl. The team's owner Robert Kraft likened the theft to "taking a great Chagall or Picasso" in an interview on the Fox Business Network.

Acevedo said the jerseys are in the possession of the NFL and FBI in Boston, and law enforcement was working to authenticate them.

"We are highly confident that these are the jerseys," he said.

I feel really good about 146 points this week because I know exactly what I am doing and spent a lot of time researching so no surprise really, at all.
