It is Jimmy V Week on ESPN, so in honor of that, here is his famous speech:

George Tanber wrote a recent article for ESPN.com on Lorena Ochoa, the number one ranked woman golfer in the world.  For the talented Ochoa, a 26-year old Mexican-American, her accolades on the course are numerous, but it is her influence outside of the arena of professional golf that Tanber explains makes “the definitive mark of a memorable champion” and creates a lasting legacy.  You can read the entire article at the link below as well as the most current LPGA golf rankings and pictures of Ochoa.

O.J. Vintage Sports Illustrated

Tom Rinaldi did an excellent piece for ESPN’s Outside the Lines, on how the legacy of O.J. Simpson was once as strong as any athlete on the planet. However, after the tumultuous 1994 murder trial of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson, and most recently, the sports memorabilia fiasco in Las Vegas, Simpson’s legacy has all but been relinquished. It just goes to show that poor choices off-of-the-field can cast a huge shadow on the legacy of a superstar athlete like Simpson.
