Over the past couple years, Major League Baseball has called attention to its extensive revenue sharing plan that distributes the wealth from the game’s most well-heeled to those less fortunate.
As expected, getting into the shoe business hasn’t been the easiest for Under Armour. They quickly took significant market share in the first year in football and baseball cleats, but decided to slow down their move into the category after investing heavily in the training and running shoe markets and not making as much noise.
Paul the Octopus "pledged allegiance" to his home country England and its bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup Friday - by swimming onto a box marked "England."
Those of you who know me know that I don’t care for soccer. I don’t follow it either. But I do follow good stories. So I had my eye on the Blackpool Football Club when they were promoted to the Premier League in May.
Buying and selling sports tickets is a risky game. Yet the manifestations of that risk barely show its face to the general population, save for the case of a man who shot himself in 1998 after he promised Masters ticket packages that he couldn't deliver. But the economy, combined with a big bet that turned bad, has dug one of the biggest players in the ticket game into a big hole.

The U.S. soccer team's run in the World Cup came to an agonizing conclusion against Ghana on Saturday, but unlike many of the major European nations competing, the team can at least head home with their heads held high. And none more so than coach Bob Bradley, who has offered myriad leadership lessons over the course of the two weeks the U.S. team was involved at the world's most-watched sporting event.
As the U.S. men’s national team get ready to take on Ghana this weekend, the most famous artifact in American soccer history is on my mind. You don’t have to be a soccer aficionado to figure out that I’m talking about Brandi Chastain’s bra.
You’d be hard pressed to find any television on Wall Street not tuned to the US-Algeria game yesterday. And it showed.
Landon Donovan scores in stoppage time against Algeria this morning and the United States advances to the next round in the World Cup. So who are the big winners besides the US team themselves?
Landon Donovan scored in the first minute of stoppage time off a rebound, advancing the United States to the second round at the World Cup with a 1-0 win over Algeria.
For the past four years, Mark Titus has done a great job becoming the world’s most famous walk-on. When blogs got hot, he was there with Club Trillion. When lack of playing time didn’t allow him to display his skills, he took to YouTube with one of the most hilarious videos you’ll ever see.
Ireland’s Graeme McDowell broke a 40-year European drought by winning the US Open on Sunday. I sat down with him to talk about the business side of golf.
