First of all, let me just say how disappointed I am that Adam Joshua did not invite me to his bachelor party, especially considering that Adam’s bachelor party was down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Kind of like rubbing salt in an open wound as I sit here in Pennsylvania shoveling myself and various other people out from under a record breaking 30 plus inches of snow.

OK, enough about me and more on Adam’s wife to be Heather, who by the way is the kind of young lady that every young blooded American boy would love to bring home to mom of course it doesn’t hurt that Adam Joshua; A.J. if you will, is also cut from that same All-American boy next door fabric.

Yes that’s right, former Eagles Quarterback A.J. (Adam Joshua) Feeley and his better half soccer star (Philadelphia Independence) Heather Mitts, will exchange wedding vows today (Feb 13) in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, and officially consummate their seven year, on again off again relationship.

Mitts is a two-time Olympic Gold-medalist as a member of the United States Women’s National Team for the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics who has represented the U.S in over 100 competitive matches. She was also a member of the US team who finished second in the 2006 Algarve Cup.

Mitts is also known as much for her looks as her athletic ability. In 2001, Heather was voted by Playboy Online, as the sexiest player in the former Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA). Read the rest of this entry →

Angela  Hucles, a Boston Breakers veteran and 2008 Olympic hero, has announced her retirement from professional soccer.

Hucles will not travel with the U.S. National Team for its match against Germany on October 29 and she will not return for the second season of Women’s Professional Soccer after playing with the Breakers in 2009.

“I always wanted to involve myself in things I was passionate about and give 110 percent,” said Hucles. “I feel like I’ve come to a point where I no longer can give that much and I know that there are other players who are ready to step up to the plate in order to bring the World Cup trophy back to the U.S. and carry on the growth of professional women’s soccer in the United States as well.” Read the rest of this entry →

      Archie Griffin

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is the only football player ever to capture college football’s top individual award twice.

      As a star running back for the Ohio State Buckeyes, Archie Griffin claimed the Heisman Trophy during his junior season in 1974 and then was able to repeat the honor the following season.

      Griffin joined the Buckeyes for the 1972 season, which happened to be the first in which freshmen were eligible to play varsity football, and made an immediate impact. After fumbling in his only carry of his first game, Griffin more than made up for it in his second game by rushing for 237 yards against North Carolina. By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
