Are athletes good role models?
Psychology Today
Athletes are role models whether or not they choose to take on the responsibility, and whether they are good or bad role models. But athlete "hero worship" wasn't always as prevalent as it is today.

The nemesis in the goal
Sports Feel Good Stories
Writes Jack Bowen of his collegiate water polo rivalry: "I despised him, and him me, or so we thought. He was a nemesis without my ever defining him as such. All because of a game. And yet, given a few years and unique circumstances, he became a dear friend, even standing next to me years later at my wedding. All because of that same game."

Cornell's chocolate milk fills refueling gap
The New York Times
Posters in the entrance to Cornell University's strength and conditioning center instruct athletes — from nearly 300-pound offensive linemen to 5-foot-tall field hockey players — to refuel their bodies after sweat-inducing workouts. But the suggested products are not jugs of protein powder or sports energy drinks commonly found around gyms; instead, they use locally produced eight-ounce bottles of 1 percent low-fat chocolate milk, similar to what is found in standard school lunches.

Mets pitcher chooses safety over style
By Denise A. Valenti
At first glance, it might appear that New York Mets pitcher Alex Torres is wearing a holdover cap from the long, snowy days of winter — the warming ear flaps folded up and over, then wrapped across the brim. Torres takes the mound with a redesign of the protective headgear he started wearing last season as part of the San Diego Padres. The new cap is a fashion improvement over the previous version that had all the padding internally, giving Torres the look of a little league player having borrowed big brother's cap. But style is not the point of the headgear, safety is.

College baseball player tumbles over fence to steal a homer
Yahoo Sports
VideoBrief Outfielder Josh Jyawook from the University of Evansville pulled off a fantastic catch to prevent a home run during a game against in-state rival Indiana University. Here's what makes Jyawook's catch even better: His team won the game 2-1 in 14 innings, so stealing a home run in such a manner was quite important to the outcome of the game.

Longest-tenure baseball coaches say entitlement is a problem
ESPN
Coaches can still use the old adage, "There is no 'I' in team" all they want, but more and more it's falling on deaf ears as the next crop of athletes comes through the doors. At least that's what we've been hearing from those who've been around the college game the longest.

Is snus a safer form of tobacco? FDA not convinced
By Denise A. Valenti
It's not quite like snuff, not quite like smokeless tobacco and quite different from cigarettes. It's called snus, a pulverized moist form of tobacco containing nicotine that is held under the upper lip. Proponents of snus are pushing for a lift on the restrictions and warnings that are generally required for tobacco products. They are also requesting classification as a modified tobacco risk product. The Federal Drug Administration's eight-member Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee recently held hearings on the products.

Study: Salt pills do little for endurance athletes
HealthDay News
Taking salt pills does little to boost the performance of endurance athletes, new research shows. During training and competitions, athletes sometimes consume large quantities of salt or electrolyte supplements containing sodium in the belief that it will help them perform better, but this can lead to excessive salt intake, the researchers explained. The study was published recently in The Journal of Sports Science and Medicine.
