With the Super Bowl less than a week away, EA Sports released its annual Super Bowl prediction with the Denver Broncos getting the nod to take home this year's championship trophy.
While there still are skeptics regarding game simulated predictions it has proven to be very reliable, correctly predicting the winner in eight of the last 10 Super Bowls.
Madden correctly picked the Baltimore Ravens' win last year over the San Francisco 49ers and picked the Giants' victory two seasons ago that made it four of its last five. more >>
While the discussion a focused on Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman regarding his post-game comments last Sunday, little has been heard from the person who gave that interview: Fox Sports' Erin Andrews.
Andrews is now breaking her silence in an interview with Elle magazine and has some very positive things to say about the outspoken Seattle player.
"It was awesome because I've done so many interviews that are just so cliché and so rehearsed and the same old same old where you feel like you're sleepwalking," Andrews told Elle. "This is one where I was like, 'What is happening right now?' I've never been a part of something like that, and obviously that's why everyone nationally is talking about it." more >>
Lebron James told Richard Sherman Thursday that he need not worry about the talking heads calling him a "thug" for his emotional outburst after the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC Championship. The postgame rant during his interview with Erin Andrews went viral, but the defensive back got a lot of negative press for the adrenaline-fueled tirade.
"I don't know one 'thug' that graduated from Stanford and also working on their Masters!" James tweeted to Sherman Thursday in support of the cornerback. "Don't judge a book by its cover."
Sherman, who yelled that he is the "the best corner in the game" during his interview, was demonized for the rant. Some of the comments from media outlets and social media users were even racially tinged, which led to a debate about whether what he said was colored by his ethnicity. more >>
NFL running back Derrick Coleman received a very special letter from a young fan who admired the player because he was deaf. Riley Kovalcik wrote that she was inspired by Coleman and that they had something in common: they were both deaf, as was Riley's twin sister Erin. Coleman responded to the twins via Twitter and a personal letter, which has now gone viral.
"Dear (My Insperation) Derrick Coleman, I know how you feel. I also have hearing aids. Just try your best. I have faif [sic] in you Derrick good job on January 20th game. Go Seattle Seahawks! Here are things we have in comen [sic]. I where [sic] two hearing aids. I love sports. Other things are I'm an identical twin and my twin where's [sic] one hearing aid too!" Kovalcik wrote to Coleman.
The NFL player recently filmed a commercial for Duracell batteries, which is partially why Riley chose to write to Coleman. She really enjoyed the commercial and its message, which is that deaf people can do anything hearing people can do. She and her family were shocked when Coleman responded to her letter personally. more >>

The latest ad for Patrick's sponsor, GoDaddy, was released on Thursday, Jan. 23, just two weeks ahead of this year's Super Bowl XL VII.
In it, 5'2" Patrick is in a bulky costume, leaving her barely recognizable as she and a crowd of body builder men race toward a spray-tanning salon. more >>
