Celebration for National Hispanic Heritage Month started on September 15 and will end on October 15. This month commemorates the profound diversity of the Spanish and Latin American culture of the United States, and is also appropriately timed with the independence anniversaries for a number of Hispanic countries. Throughout the years, Latinos have also contributed vastly to the sports world.More »
The LA Lakers debuted a new black jersey today — and it's pretty sweet. Called Hollywood Nights, the alternate jersey is black with purple lettering and yellow trim. The team is going to wear it "for select games" this season, and it will be the first time the team will don black threads. (The traditional jerseys are gold, purple, and white.)
Here's a closer look at the new threads:
Week two saw a top-5 battle between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle won easily and overtook San Francisco for the number two spot in the power rankings.
Denver is holding on to the top spot and shows no signs of letting it go. But there has been some movement underneath the Broncos in the rankings. The New Orleans Saints are now in the top 10, and a few teams fell far. The Washington Redskins drop all the way to number 25 after starting 0-2, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneer fell five spots to number 27 after another disappointing loss.

Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman was among the NFL leaders in both interceptions (8) and passes defensed (24) last season. It's Sherman's job to pick on opposing quarterbacks, and he does it as well as anyone.
But while it's Sherman's job to pick on quarterbacks on the field, he knows there's no room for bullying away from the gridiron. That's why he's among the celebrities teaming up with CustomInk's Be Good to Each Other campaign, recognizing National Bullying Prevention Month in October.
Check out the special anti-bullying t-shirt he designed at the bottom of this page. (You can see the full collection at www.customink.com/stopbullying.)
Richard also took the SI Kids 10 Questions personality questionnaire. Check out his answers… More »
