CAN the BENGALS mesmerize the NFL in 2022? & Rise To Greatness?
From the jump of the 21, 22 NFL season, my allegiance has remained steadfast and optimistic. I can assure you my enjoyment of being a BENGALS fan has only increased. Now we can say to all the doubters, "We in There!" The underdog in my competitive blood has been consistently rooting for the Cincinnati BENGALS, actually since midway of last season. The fact they previously finished last place in the AFC division LAST YEAR had no impression on who I'd be riding with this season. And a great season for football it has been! I admit me and the NFL fell out over that Kaepernick situation and all the confusion behind it. But as of recent years, my love for a game of excitement and the NFL has slowly but surely returned. Yes indeed, I love the action-packed, ANY GIVEN SUNDAY football season. Six months of gridiron fever. All true NFL football fanatics are glued to Sunday festivities. For example, personally, the television is broadcasting one division while another device is showing the other. The perfect solution to choosing which game to follow, dual technology.
An Opportunity to follow the path of a great educational experience, for me is priceless. Full Sail has re-lit a fire of creative passion that I have always dreamed of living. A Global achievement is something that would be forever in the realm of my appreciating spirit. The dedicated path I have chosen to fully commit and surrender to has been set in motion. Fear and anxiety constantly try to set mental roadblocks to my success. Through my struggle I know I'm unfinished. I know my final chapter in my life, is still being written! I love the exciting feeling of intellectual progress. I feel late to the party, at the same instance exactly on time. The Gift of this Award Is so meaningful, and so much needed for a starving creative mind. I have not given it the attention deserved. I would not be irresponsible or misuse the tools given if such an honor came into my possession. Trust and believe my only concerns are to achieve and advance. Positively and product fully as I can, Today I hope and expect greatness! I know only the chance and opportunity are what I need most. With the dream at my disposal, I'm sure living it WOULD BE EASY!. And in doing so I can command position and be able to give back to the ones who need it the most. Our future! Our smallest and most important consumers.
Anybody else Notice?
Calling all sports news watchers to the discussion table, please... The time has come to question the media leader's objectives and intents. First and foremost, my love for all sports and professional activism is cemented. I'm not exactly positive when this particular sports news outlet was created. But as of now, the sportscasting networks, net worth is billions and still counting I'd presume. How many people's televisions stay on channel 35? How many phones are constantly being fed with First Take outtakes or content from the many programs we sports nuts love and faithfully watch. When I was 17 or so, I would race home from my activity of the day to catch the best plays of the previous day. Seeing the highlights and scores of my favorite players was a favorite pastime, and still is. For some, we have formed a personal relationship with the world of sports.com.
JUST Us, Still Pt.2
Besides my country, the only thing I had more love and would die for in this insane world for was my lovely crazy wife Karen and our beautiful teenage daughter Dianne. We had named Dianne after my sister Diana, who had committed suicide as a teenager herself. Before leaving for Iraq, we never spoke about mental health issues and their seeming hold on the immediate family. Life was life, and that was that. I and my Dad Had both been proud American soldiers. Military men trained. Bred to be Brave and Born to defend the Honor of the Great U.S.A., by all means. Pops had even been decorated and commended for his 27 plus years of dedication. He was a retired Master of Arms. When Diana suddenly took her life alcohol and depression quickly claimed their immunity.
Malcolm Little X
Born Malcolm Little, in 1966 a racially disturbing time in history, a child of Afro-Black American distinction, was to become a man of considerable conviction and knowledge. A flat-out messenger sent to open eyes shut by injustices and fear. The vision he professed and the legacy he was destined to leave would be considerably impactful. A man placed in a desirable position, but only to the chosen. A lot of men would not have accepted the grave responsibility and role this man played in civil rights. This era of humanity was cruel and from my perspective, out of order. The introduction of Malcolm X, and the movement he carried, not only was impactful but necessary. I can not personally imagine being in the same place, or time of such reverence. The whole idea of what was endured, set forth, and accomplished is mind-blowing stuff. Not only is this man my hero, But also a blaze of fire and motivation! For me, His story is not only of proactivity & Black self-love and respect but of encouragement and self-will. Line up 10 great men today of Integrity and anointing, I doubt they measure up to the X.
Mr. M. K. Williams
I had not known much about the man behind the long scar across his face. All that was known was the fact he acted exceptionally well on the latest T.V. series. The first time I was made familiar with Mr. Williams was on The Wire. His performance immediately gathered my attention. Instantly I had become a fan of Michael K. Williams. His portrayal of his character was gripping and real. I'd bet the Producers saw the effect he had on the audience and instantly saw gold. I'd bet his mere presence was electrifying. You probably couldn't look the man in his eyes without being drug to wherever he demanded. I never got a chance to fully study the man I admired from a distance. As fate would have it, life remains too short! How could someone who possesses such a needed voice, be snatched away so suddenly? The unexpected loss of genuine artistry cuts deep. Now I must search through the list of movies starring Mr. Williams, or find the interviews or commentaries that were graced by his beautiful soul. The last thing by this humanitarian that I was able to find, was the documentary BLACK MARKET. A Subject so many prominent figures don't speak on, or do not relate, consider or understand. Black Market dives into the underworld of the popularity of drug use in today's social environments. I commend Michael on his courage to attack this problematic, misunderstood topic.
As of this morning, it has been 1yr. Free and clean of all toxicity. I haven't laid a finger on drugs or alcohol. Recently my addictive personality has been in considerable control. PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY I feel as strong as ox. In all sincerity Spiritually I feel much, much more is to be revealed. My stay at the treatment center has been awakening for sure! Besides a new year, my graduation and completion of my rehabilitation, or should I say to continue... The 12 steps I've become familiar with speak of a constant struggle. A lesson of consistency and preparation to counter the grip of self-medicating. A balance of emotions becomes aware. To be truthful, nervousness has been pecking away at me all week. The excitement of going home has become disrupted by uncertainty. Fear has a conniving way of inviting itself. Still, I hold fast on my blueprint, the master plan I had been setting in place for the longest. Even in the entrapment of the jungle, I had been on the fence. I was blessed. Being pulled by a force unconceivable to the dying flesh. It took a while for me to reach this moment. In due time I suppose. The relationships and knowledge of this particular moment are perfect. The most amazing woman that I've ever met just so happens to be my nurse. I,d been in complete awe of her beauty from day 1. The care and compassion she showed toward me were unforgettable.
SIMPLY NOT SIMONE
To triumph, to overcome impossibilities are a few things admired in such loveliness. Not only physical beauty but inner confidence and resilience are even more of an attraction. Unsettling for nothing less than greatness is something I see beyond the face of courage. I can only imagine how many times you've fallen and immediately gotten back up. The hr.'s upon hr.'s of dedication is I'm sure unmeasurable. Your many accomplishments only prepare for the next challenge. And your accolades continue to command recognition. The appreciation of this woman's value continues to soar, just as high as her performances.
La' MELO BALL on forthcoming
This NBA season the 3rd edition to the league from the Ball clan is no other than, Lamelo Ball. He is now settling nicely into his leadership role for the Charlotte Hornets and has slid comfortably into his own. His rookie season was an impressive statement as well, Winning the prestigious rookie of the year award for 2020 and 21, and becoming the youngest to record a triple-double at 19. The youngest, I'd even say even the most marketable member of the Ball clan is taking his sophomore campaign by storm. His promising B-Ball career and record-breaking success were already exposed. At 16, this young man was already playing pro Ball overseas. Preparation for dominance on the court was put in place before most of us could piss straight. Sky's can't be the limit, because how this young man is playing honorable mention for MVP is soon to come.
