    Kathrine Switzer was attacked 50 years ago as she ran the Boston Marathon. Why? She was a woman.

    Kathrine Switzer was a few miles into her history-making run at the Boston Marathon on April 19, 1967, when Jock Semple, the co-director of the famous 26-mile race, suddenly appeared behind her and tried to shove her out of the competition.

                    The Eagles played it safe with Carson Wentz. It's time to see if the move pays off.

                    "All-In For Week 3" doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it? No, it's not catchy. It's not what Carson Wentz wanted. But that's what the Philadelphia Eagles have done with Wentz, their third-year franchise quarterback coming back from the knee injury in December that cut short what otherwise...

                              Conor McGregor bellied up to his makeshift bar, plopped his dress shoes on the table and took a swig of his own Irish whiskey. Take a shot for every profanity belched out by the returning star? You'd be toast. But UFC can raise a glass to the return of the most loquacious, wicked and perhaps the...
