In the end, our villains become harmless, their careers becoming metaphors for our own lives. We will all eventually grow old and die, something athletes do in handy, compact fashion, essentially finished and useless to us at the age the rest of us are still figuring out what we’re doing with our lives. (Former NFL MVP Terrell Davis retired from football at 29 in 2001, and odds are his name didn’t enter your brain once until he made the Hall of Fame last year. He’s now 46. Not a single thing he’s done in 17 years has mattered to the popular culture.) We have pity for them at the end of their careers, because they remind us we are mortal, that we age and gray and crumble and die. No matter how little we could related to Brett Favre as a player, we can all relate to him in atrophy: We’re all decaying ourselves. … [Read more...] about Why Tom Brady’s Decline Sucks Even for Tom Brady Haters

Each of the nationalities could easily have been an independent country. Had the British wanted, they could have constituted the Yoruba, the Igbo, the Hausa/Fulani, the Middle Belt and the Niger Delta into independent nations. But they did not. They wanted Nigeria to be a regional power, according a colonial official. Fair enough! But here’s the rub.
