We’re partnering with our pals at ESPN The Magazine for a series of six-word challenges. Each week, The Mag and SMITH will choose a topic—Roger Clemens, Brett Favre, steroids—and ask you to submit six words that describes its essence. Example? Barry Bonds: “Record-setter one year, unemployed the next.” Steroids: “No me, I swear. Roger that.” Our friends at Disney say they’ll be prizes, too.

First challenge: Can you sum up Tiger Woods in just six words? ESPN Mag editor Scott DeSimon reports that Mike in Gahanna, Ohio is an early front-runner with, “Work? Golf. Wife? Hottie. Life? Perfect.”

Let the games begin.

    Sport is a lifestyle. I work as a golf coach and have been practicing sports all my life. I adapt my life for sports and it is very difficult. You must constantly look for new things that will help you grow professionally. I found a very good store for golf lovers. sportwetten

    oh that’s what i’ve heard. that the south is really serious about sports. hmmm…not sure where i’ll fit in that spectrum. i think it’s so different for girls than it is for boys. i just want my girlies to get some exercise and have fun. i don’t take anything to an extreme. but i do love passion so i get what you are saying about giving it your all. i don’t think that’s ever a bad thing.i99bet

    I have written a number of prior posts on this, so I’m not going to rehash the definition, of which objective scoring is just one element. The point of this (admittedly academic) discussion is to distinguish what really is sport from other competitions or contests, even those that involve “athletic ability.” Under Alberto’s definition, “Dancing With the Stars” is a sport, which I don’t believe is correct.coded pushup board

    Football and epistemology. I love it. The connection is so obvious you wonder there is not a whole literature on the subject. Further evidence of how the academy and the people who gather to watch the Super Bowl over chips and beer can lose track of one another. I say if we are serious about praxis — i.e., scholarship that stands a chance of helping the world become a little more reflective and honest — we need to pay more attention to things like instant replays and sports bloopers. Nice work, Harper.software

    Great post. I agree that sport and soccer particularly has the power to bring peace to areas of conflict. While the research is relatively limited I, and I’m sure many out there, have seen plenty of evidence that soccer works. I have founded an Australia-based charity called The Kick Project (www.thekickproject.blogspot.com.au) which is seeking to build local/global football for peace networks and programs globally. I would love to engage with like minds - whether with the view to assist with seed funding or as local groups looking to reach out and possibly work together. Pls contact me thro the above website if interested. Thanks and peace….Mobil Ödeme Bahis

    I think its a great idea to keep her in the more community style classes until it is clear she needs/wants to be in some bigger/more expensive. Hooray for trying new things and enjoying it.Mobil Ödeme Bahis

    I missed the cerimony too (it was from 1am to 5am here in Italy), but luckily I cought the second part re-aired in the morning. Really liked Thomas Boch’s opening speech, all about the values the Olympics uphold and why they matter in today’s world.bitseven bitcoin leveraged
