Riches to Rags

Terrell Owens,  Latrell Sprewell, Mark brunell, Antwan Walker, Jim Layritz just to name a few.

Professional athletes from the nation's three biggest and most profitable leagues—the NBA, NFL and MLB—are going for broke. Although salaries have increasingly risen over the years, they just can’t seem to get it right. Peep this:

• By the time they have been retired for two years, 78% of former NFL players have gone bankrupt or are under financial stress because of joblessness or divorce.

• Within five years of retirement, an estimated 60% of former NBA players are broke
The B.O.S takes a look at some things that contribute to the financial troubles of many professional athletes....and this is only the short list.

Athletes,Spouses Share Marriage Proposals

As a woman, I am wired to let out a big "awwww" for certain moments in life. A baby's wobbly first steps, a newly drafted NFL player hugging his mother and, of course, the story of someone's marriage proposal. Every proposal is special in its own way.

To honor this Valentine's Day's celebration of love and excess sugar, I decided to dig into the personal lives of some of my favorite athletes and learn just what happened the day they went from "unavailable" to "officially off the market."

First Lady in the Lone Star State

First lady Michelle Obama has made the fight against childhood obesity the central focus of her time in the White House. She brings her “Let’s Move” initiative to North Texas this week as part of a nationwide tour to celebrate the movement’s second anniversary and to raise further awareness about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for children.

Obama will first hold a roundtable dinner discussion at an Olive Garden restaurant in Fort Worth on Thursday with parents who are changing habits in their homes and communities.

On Friday, the first lady will join Dallas Cowboys players and former Top Chef contestants at southeast Dallas Elementary School to celebrate the Dallas school district’s commitment to creating a healthier atmosphere for its students. The visit, which will feature a cooking competition involving both chefs and students, will also encourage increased collaboration between restaurant chefs and school cafeterias.

Chicktionary: Super Bowl Edition

So you’re not a football fanatic. For 364 days of the year (or in a leap year, 365 days) that’s fine, but on Super Bowl Sunday, the “McMuffin” of all sports days, it’s definitely a problem.
But don’t be discouraged. You’re not alone. An estimated 40 percent of all those who will be watching the Super Bowl aren’t really football fans. They, like you, just want to be a part of the party and also…..impress that guy :-) .
