Super Bowl and MLB misc.

First of all, I'm going to say that I'm not going to post any more past articles. I don't have the time and a lot of them are no longer available on-line anymore anyways.

Also, a great article by ESPN's Michael Smith on how what's most important about Colts coach Tony Dungy and Bears coach Lovie Smith is that they are good Christian, family men:

Here's an article about former Yankee player and current Yankee broadcaster Bobby Murcer's recovery from a malignant brain tumor. Here's a quote from him thanking the fans for all of their support:

"I've been wanting to jump in here and let you all know how much your e-mails of good wishes have meant to me during the past few weeks," Murcer said. "I never imagined this outpouring of support would come my way, but your prayers are doing more for my recovery than any medicine ever could."

Here's the article:

Next, an article about Cliff Floyd signing with his hometown Cubs. Here's a quote from him about that:

"The man upstairs put me here and I'm going to take full advantage of it," he said. "I've thought about it numerous nights. It's been a long time since my heart was pumping for a press conference, but it's pumping today."

Here's the article:

Here's an article about the Indians Jason Michaels, Josh Barfield, and Ryan Garko helping to package care packages being sent to troops overseas by the USO:

Also, a great article about Tony Dungy and his son's death during last season:

Here's a good article about the trouble that some players get into in the days leading up to the Super Bowl. Here's a quote about the Colts, however:

Chances are, Dungy won't have many reasons to worry, not with this team. The Colts are a pretty mature, professional group, a sober bunch for the most part. Let's just say, nobody on the Indianapolis roster has had to petition a county court judge to let him leave the state to play in the Super Bowl -- a la Chicago's Tank Johnson.

Here's the article:

Lastly, an article about the Astros Mark Loretta being awarded the Hutch Award to a MLB player that shows honor, courage, and dedication. Also, in the article a quote from Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester on his progress from cancer treatment:

Lester, 22, who lives in nearby Puyallup, Wash., attended the luncheon. His hair is gone because of his chemotherapy treatments, but he believes the cancer is gone, as well.

"I'm all done. I'm heading to camp Tuesday," Lester said. "Hopefully, everything will go off without a hitch."

Here's the article:
