On The Prowl


Once in a blue moon, one athlete will take their sport by storm, and revolutionize the way it is viewed. I know this is a Panthers blog, but I need to get away from that for a minute or two. Yesterday, Sarah Burke passed away from injuries sustained during a training run in Utah. Sarah Burke was one of those athletes, and pioneered freestyle skiing. She made men rethink the sport, because she was flying higher and doing riskier stunts. She is the reason the X-Games coverage of women’s freestyle skiing has grown. So, in honor of her, this edition is dedicated to her.

Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke died Thursday, nine days after crashing at the bottom of the superpipe during a training run in Utah.

Signs that spring can’t be too far away: A groundhog seeing his shadow, pitchers and catchers reporting, and Mel Kiper Jr. publishing his first mock draft.

The St. Louis Rams will host regular-season games in Britain each of the next three years, starting in October against the New England Patriots.
