Jack of all trades, master of none
For those of you unware, in professional sports it's very common to use a "Mount Rushmore" to describe your top 4 athletes in any sporting event. And what I find very interesting about your "Mount Rushmore" is you can be as vague or specific as you want. Specifications could be by age, era, sport, gender, you name it. I do plan to make many more of these, so let's take a look at my UFC Mount Rushmore first.
There's a quote from the first Captain America movie where Steve Rogers says to Bucky about wanting to join the War; "Bucky, come on! There are men laying down their lives. I got no right to do any less than them. That's what you don't understand". Now granted I haven't done anything that drastic, but the last portion specifically of ".. I got no right to do any less.." has always resonated with me. I was never the most physically or mentally gifted. I wasn't born into a super wealthy family. However, life had privileged me with very good health, two parents who were incredibly hard workers, and the ability to live my life on my terms. Not very many people can say they have those gifts. And who am I to abuse those gifts through negligence, selfishness, and pure laziness. I've done as much charity work as I can, I'm a registered organ donor for when it's my time, I've donated money to various charities over the years. Anything and everything I can do to spread some positivity and warmth to the world. However specifically for this article I'll be talking about blood donations, and more specifically my years donating blood. As well as why you should donate blood too, if you can.
Let me start of by saying you're always entitled to your opinion, and if you happen to like one or the other or even both that's okay. I just personally have a huge problem with both "Ready Player One" and "The Big Bang Theory" (from here on out they will be abbreviated as RPO and TBBT). The very brief explanation as to why; is they're both the exact opposite message you want to send to the general public about nerd culture. So much selfishness and self-righteousness because you happen to know painfully obscure facts about nerd culture. Seriously, let's take a look.
For fellow fans of the show "Parks and Recreation" this drink may ring a bell. Lagavulin is not only Ron Swanson's favorite drink but he also ends up becoming a majority owner of the Lagavulin Distillery. Funny enough, Nick Offerman himself was a huge fan of Lagavulin in his personal life long before the show ever aired. This caused the writers of "Park's and Recreation" to write Lagavulin into Ron's character. Now let us see if this drink is worth the hype or not. Spoiler alert, it most definitely is worth the hype and let me explain why.
For those of you unfamiliar with professional wrestling lingo, to be a heel means you're the bad guy in the story. To be a heel; you do bad things. You can cheat, you can talk bad about the crowd or the good guy wrestler, or even set up fake alliances and betray your partner. Then worst of all, if you're in the WWE you can join the Authority and side with "the man". Let's take a look at some of my favorite wrestling heels.
Hockey finally is back! For those of you unaware, I was born and raised in Vegas and I still live here. I do not foresee myself leaving Las Vegas any time soon. So obviously this article will be incredibly bias. Here are my predictions for my Vegas Golden Knights this upcoming 2020/2021 NHL season. And yes I'm aware this season didn't start until 2021, so it really should be called the 2021 season, but who cares? I'm sticking with tradition.
No matter the sport, I absolutely love sports. Minus soccer, I'm sorry but I never can appreciate soccer no matter how hard I try. It's just not for me. Again, I'm sorry. Anyways throughout history there are some crazy matches that for one reason or another we were robbed of. Now let me explain which events I will be including, very simply these athletes would have needed to be active during these hypothetical events. So, for example I will not be discussing Bill Russell vs Shaq to see who the better center is. Or like, Mohammad Ali vs Tyson Fury. However, I will bring out the time machine for a future article if this article gets some good feedback.
Even though the first film article isn't my most read article; it has the most hearts. So I figured, why not give my readers some more movies I absolutely hate. As previously stated in my first article I will not be including films where their goal was to just be shocking or controversial for clout. If you do not see a film you think should be on this list, please refer to my first list. Also a quick heads up if this article does get some more hearts just as my first one did, I will continue this trend of just trash talking films. Also how fitting the cover photo for this article is an empty movie theater, as they probably were when these films came out. First film aside since this movie had a lot of hype behind its' release.
