Ranked one of Five Podcasts that Will Change the Way You Think by Forbes Magazine, Intelligence Squared Debates has opened the floor on timely, politically-charged issues during more than 60 interactive Oxford-style debates—typically broadcast live from New York on more than 220 NPR stations, on PBS, and on Wall Street Journal's WSJLIve. In past debates, Arianna Huffington and P.J. O'Rourke have dueled over whether the two-party political system makes it impossible to govern. Malcolm Gladwell has advocated banning college football amid rebuttals from sports broadcaster Tim Green.

Whether the topic is Palestine's UN admission as a full member state, the pros and cons of religion, or the Internet's effect on our ability to stay open-minded, audience members get to question luminaries who have included Paul Krugman, Alan Dershowitz, and Karl Rove and throw tomatoes at them when they're deemed out of order. Each attendee is also afforded the final vote––for, against, or undecided––to crown the debate's winner.

The Under Armour All-America High School Football Game pits some of the country's top pigskin-handling seniors against each other in an All America game broadcast by ESPN. More than 90 promising young athletes pull out their hardest-hitting demonstrations of skill and announce their college destinations at the game, pumping up alumni and convincing burnt-out mascots to squeeze into the giant head one more time. The game has previously catapulted athletes including first-round NFL picks Julio Jones, currently a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, and A. J. Green of the Cincinnati Bengals, onto the national stage. Tropicana Field contains the on-field and in-stand energy within a giant dome, protecting heads from the elements and sky-diving long snappers.

During the main event, southpaw David Diaz, former WBC world lightweight champion, will dispute the finer points of pugilistic philosophy in a 10-round debate with “Red Hot” Robert Frankel. Diaz, a Chicago native, won the national Golden Gloves three times, and currently holds a professional record of 35-3-1, winning 17 fights by KO. For the co-main event, light heavyweight Andrzej "The Polish Prince" Fonfara (15-2, 6 KO's) will take on Adam Jaco (10-3, 4 KO's). To pique the audience’s appetite for cobra-fast jabs, dancerly footwork, devastating star punches, and the sweet music of pummeled human meat, undefeated Russian welterweight Anton Novikov (18-0) and California’s Dashon Johnson (11-3-3) will test the adhesive on each others’ hairpieces for eight rounds. Junior welterweights Aslanbek Kozaev (13-0) and Hector Alatorre (16-13-0) will also battle. Doors open at 7 p.m., fighters touch gloves at 8 p.m., and the judges begin a slow waltz at 11 p.m., signaling the end of the evening’s festivities.

The ECHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators, the Elmira Jackals skated onto the scene in 2000 as a member of the United Hockey League. After a successful seven-year run in the UHL—including a playoff appearance in their very first season—the Jackals moved to the ECHL in 2007–2008, where they've remained since. Although the Jackals are still in hot pursuit of their first Kelly Cup, the team has earned a playoff berth in every season, highlighted by an Eastern Conference regular-season title in 2011–12. Off the ice, the Jackals remain active in the community with efforts led by mascot Blade, who's often spotted mingling with fans at parties, retail stores, and while getting his eyebrows waxed at local spas.

The 'K' of the Chicago Sky's logo towers above the other letters, two thin prongs poking out from the top—a nod to the most famous of the city's iconic buildings. Fittingly inspired by the Chicago skyline, the Sky's uniforms have represented the Windy City since 2006. In those years, some of the WNBA's top players have donned the blue and yellow threads, including Candice Dupree, Epiphanny Price, and Sylvia Fowles—a defensive star who also wore red, white, and blue in London in 2012. In 2010, the Sky transitioned from the UIC Pavilion to a new, permanent home court, packing its neatly folded coaches into suitcases and moving to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont.
