What Freezing Temperatures Do to an NFL Athlete's Body
The Boston Globe
Bill Belichick may have no time for the forecast, but you'd better believe his athletic trainers are paying attention. Reports heading into last Saturday's game pegged the kickoff temperature at about 20 degrees, with wind chills dropping the effective temperature somewhere south of that. And while the perception exists that athletes can simply grin and bear the frigid air with no ill effects, that's simply not the case.

College Basketball Saved Player's Life, Literally
The News Journal
Tom Allshouse took a couple labored breaths, gasped and blacked out. His head flopped to the side as he lay on his back on a University of Delaware basketball court. At that instant his coach, Monte Ross, kneeling next to him, had a horrifying flashback. Ross' father, Earl, who was 65 and suffering from terminal cancer, had died in his son's arms in much the same manner in 2003.

The Guardian
When images of Saracens rugby players wearing what looked like a jumbo-sized plaster underneath their right earlobes against London Irish were broadcast last week, the initial reaction was bemusement: What is it?
