Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel
As part of Real Sports' 20th anniversary season, comedians from within the HBO family give their unusual takes on the sports world. This month, Bill Maher offers his signature 'New Rules' for sports.
Real Sports correspondent David Scott and producer Jordan Kronick detail their unforgettable trip to the Himalayas for their February report on the deaths of Sherpas on Mt. Everest.
A devastating avalanche killed 13 Sherpa workers on Mount Everest last year, marking the worst tragedy in the mountain's history. With expeditions to the top of Everest more popular today than ever before, some observers felt such a disaster was all but inevitable.
When young athletes are injured, doctors commonly prescribe painkillers such as Percocet or Vicodin, leading in some cases to addiction. But when the prescription runs out and they hit the streets looking for a fix, they find pain pills too expensive and turn to heroin.
