Jan. 4, 2015 — We Americans surely love our sports.

As indicated by the most read sports stories on Modern Times Magazine in 2015, that also includes disabled athletes: two of the top seven articles include paralympic wheelchair rugby and the Duel in the Desert for disabled athletes.

But what seemed to really gather the public’s attention was the content that focused upon the Arizona Cardinals, the sports darlings of the Phoenix metro.

Not to be forgotten is the women in the game, highlighted on the Prime Cuts by Benedictine University’s 100-inning softball game.

So take a look before turning on the TV to follow your favorite team or better yet, go out and play some ball.

No. 7 "Disabled Athletes Redefine Limitations In Phoenix"
After housing the USA Wheelchair Rugby team tryouts in September, the gym at Ability360 Sports and Fitness Center hosted the third annual Duel in Desert. The event brought 19 teams with players from five different states together in one place to compete in a variety of sports, including wheelchair basketball, stand-up amputee basketball, power soccer and wheelchair rugby. — Posted Oct. 28, 2015

No. 6 "Why Fans Should Care About The Super Bowl Sex Trade"
The Super Bowl may be the biggest single game in the world, but the amount of sex that gets paid for surrounding the event is, by itself, likely the biggest sex circus to ever come to a town. Studies strongly back up this claim, yet the NFL seems to be as ambivalent to the situation. — Posted Jan. 20, 2015

No. 5 "Will Larry Fitzgerald Return To Arizona Cardinals?"
Before the success of the current season, there was the end of the 2014 season — in January. The first thing many fans and pundits wondered was whether Larry Fitzgerald had played his last game as an Arizona Cardinal. The now-rejuvenated Fitzgerald was set to place a $23 million cap hit on the team. Well, in February, he agreed to a two-year deal for $11 million a year and the rest as they say, is history. — Posted Jan. 6, 2015

No. 4 "Mesa's Benedictine U Plans 100-Inning Ballgame"
Just because Title IX guarantees access, exposure is a whole other matter. Mesa’s Benedicitne University took a new gimmick and made it their own this summer: a 100-inning girls softball game. On Sept. 19, the softball team hosted its First Annual 100 Inning Softball Game to raise money for the program heading into its first season. — Posted Aug. 18, 2015

No. 3 "Arizona Cardinals Need To Replace Carson Palmer"
Sure, the headline was a bit of an evasion. The article was really about the fact that the replacement of Carson Palmer was going to happen within the next few years, so it might be smart to spend some draft picks on a new signal-caller now. “By drafting the quarterback of the future now, the Cardinals will have the ability to prepare him behind Palmer for a few more years (barring a major injury). That could make things awkward after a couple seasons if Palmer isn’t ready to ride off into the sunset (a la Brett Favre), but it is worth the risk.” — Posted Oct. 5, 2015

No. 2 "Paralympic Rugby Athletes Transcend Disability"
The Phoenix metro hosts some of the biggest and brightest sporting events in the nation, but recently, the brightest light may not have been the biggest when world class athletes from around the country competed for spots on the USA wheelchair rugby team that hopes to take home gold at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro next year. “Selection camp is always tough,” said Head Coach James Gumbert. “The reason is every one of these guys has sacrificed and paid a huge price to have the privilege and the honor to wear the letters USA.” — Posted Sept. 24, 2015

No. 1 "Daryl Washington’s Fate Is A Punch In The Face For Cards"
Last June, the NFL offseason rumor-mill was in full froth and Daryl Washington’s fate from a domestic violence suspension was the talk of the Phoenix metro. Well, Washington hasn’t seen the field this year and the Cardinals are odds-on favorites to win the whole enchilada, er, Super Bowl. Maybe the NFL felt the same way the writer does: that a broken collarbone should not be a misdemeanor. — Posted June 25, 2015
