"What the Olympics represent is that journey,” Rhode told NBC. “Overcoming those bumps, the obstacles, the good, the bad.” To top it off, Rhode’s historic Olympic career – the longevity of which is rivaled by few other Olympians – hasn’t gotten the accolades it deserves. “Were she involved in any other Olympic sports, she would be seen as a wonderful spokesperson. She is a mother and a wife. She plays ‘Pokemon Go’ and Clash of Clans. She ...

This airline pilot just gave his military son the best homecoming surprise ever

We were young and idealistic and determined to help The Gipper beat the Soviets in the Cold War, free up the American economy, and put a halt to the spreading bureaucracy of central government. In time, we came around to the idea that two out of three ain’t bad. It was a great house to raise a family – a graceful Cape Cod-style clapboard with a big yard. Shade trees with swings for the kids. A garden for Jane, a library for me. First thing ...
