It's a shame how the average American sports fan—who thinks that the Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the world and that the World Series sparks interest beyond a handful of countries—fails to appreciate the global impact of a team like Barcelona or a player like Lionel Messi.

The Beauty of Barça
Grant Wahl perfectly captured the spirit and beauty of FC Barcelona (The World's Team). By maximizing the skill and athleticism of star players like Messi, Xavi and Cesc Fàbregas, Barcelona has transcended the game of soccer and forever changed the sport.

Labor of Love
I have long admired Davis Love III's talent on the golf course, but after reading his article on the U.S.'s devastating Ryder Cup defeat (Love's Story), I now admire him even more. I appreciate Love's humility and how he still considers his experience as Ryder Cup captain one of the highlights of his career.

Home Is Where the Game Is
I agree with Phil Taylor's critique of the current state of the NFL (POINT AFTER) and also think the league will soon see its attendance and revenue diminish. The comfort of staying at home and watching the game of your choice on high definition far outweighs exorbitant ticket prices, unruly fans, parking fees and traffic. I was a Giants season-ticket holder for 45 years, and I finally had to say enough.
