Sunday's Google Doodle celebrated the life of Sylvia Plath—but who was she, and why is she worth remembering? Though she only lived to the age of 30, Sylvia Plath made an indelible mark on the literary world. She penned several books of poetry as well as the novel The Bell Jar, published in 1963. In the New York Times Book Review, fellow Pulitzer-winner Joyce Carol Oates described Plath as "one of the most celebrated and controversial of postwar poets writing in English." She was awarded the 1982 Pulitzer Prize in poetry, the first person to receive the accolade posthumously. Much of Plath's work is reflective of the agony a person may experience as a result of mental health problems, as well as of how one's view of their own impending death can spur the most intense self-reflection. What she produced in her short yet illustrious career remains influential today. Plath was born October 27, 1932, in Boston, and exhibited an early aptitude for the literary arts. According to the … [Read more...] about Sylvia Plath: Google Doodle Honors Eminent American Poet and Novelist on Birthday

Here's what Dennis Dodd's Heisman Trophy ballot would look like by Dennis Dodd @dennisdoddcbs Dec 9, 2019 at 12:07 pm ET • 3 min read The official Heisman Trophy ballot only allows voters to list three players. Seems kind of limiting considering there are 130 schools, half of them in the Power Five, and scores of skill players populating them. Fortunately, we are not limiting ourselves in this space.The 2019 season was one in which Ohio State could have made a case for three candidates by itself. Four if you count LSU's quarterback, an Ohio State graduate. One of the Buckeyes was a defensive force we haven't seen the likes off in at least a decade. Another was picked off once in 308 throws. Still another made himself one of the all-time runners at Ohio State, a school that can brag a bit about all-time runners.But none of them measured up to LSU QB Joe Burrow. A kid whose dad and brothers played at Nebraska; a kid who grew up in Ohio and played … [Read more...] about Heisman Trophy finalists: How to rank the three primary contenders for the 2019 award

If it ended Saints 46, Niners 45, which was the score after 59 minutes and 20 seconds, we’d probably still call it the game of the year. But the fact that it didn’t, and the fact that something happened on fourth-and-2 that immediately takes its place in all-time 49ers lore, and vaulted San Francisco from fifth to first in the NFC playoff race with three games to go, well, that makes it all NFL Filmsy/tingly and massively important in the playoff race at the same time. “The whole day,” George Kittle said an hour after it was over, “for me, was one of the best experiences of my life. The place was crazy, fans were nuts, you couldn’t hear. Such a fun … [Read more...] about FMIA Week 14: How George Kittle and the ‘Choice’ Route Helped Lift 49ers Over Saints in the Game of the Year
