    U.S. Women [#1]: The Contenders Unmask Themselves

    Simone and Gracie, IMO, are very different stories. Simone, at the top of her sport, knew that mentally she had to walk away. That is an enormous amount of self-awareness and maturity. What I don't get with Gracie is why is she doing this to herself? It seems clear that she is in the same...

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Opening Ceremony - It's On Like Donkey Kong!

    I just don't get it. The Opening Ceremonies lose millions of dollars always. I get that this is the Olympics. But really is this bow the world wants to use its resources?
