The year was 1912, I was 20 years old and I'd gotten a job aboard the Unsinkable Titanic. I was just a general crew hand so anything and everything that was needed of me, I'd help where I could when I could. Essentially sun rise to sun set I was working and afterwards I was free to do what I pleased. It was good money I could send back home to my wife and son. Forgive me, where are my manners? My name is Howard Trevor, pleasure to meet you. This is my story aboard the Titanic.
TUF 30: Pena/Nunes
I legitimately thought I was done talking about the UFC for a while but this is huge news. It's official, TUF season 30 will be coached by current Women's Bantamweight Champion Vanessa Pena and former Women's Bantamweight Champion/current Women's Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes. After the season is done, the two coaches will square off in their immediate rematch for the 135lb belt.
Ranking the 4 Disney+, MCU TV shows of 2021
Although I miss the Marvel Netflix series, and it breaks my heart Netflix will be removing those shows on March 1st. The Disney+ shows we've gotten so far, has me incredibly excited for the future of the small screen MCU. Especially with shows like Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion and even Ms. Marvel on the way in 2022. So why not rank the first 4 live action shows in order from my most to least favorite. Key word though, live action. I'm going to write about "What-If?" soon enough, but with how much I can work with for "What-If?" that show deserves its own article.
Super bowl LVI
It's official the Cincinnati Bengals and LA Rams are going to the Super Bowl this weekend, Sunday kick off at 3:30pm PST. It has been a crazy year to say the least. The 2020-2021 NFL season was played in it's entirety, but the stands were completely empty. We finally were allowed to have stands full of fans back in attendance for the first time since the pandemic started. This season was also extended from 16 to 17 regular season games, this was done by converting one of the four preseason games into a regular season game. Covid of course was a problem all throughout the season across all 32 teams. The Football world lost John Madden, RIP. Then last but not least, the craziest news dropped only a few days ago. Tom Brady has officially retired after 22 long seasons in the NFL, honorable mention to Ben Roethlisberger's farewell tour this season. So now onto the big game.
Just win baby
Let's go, Raiders! Finally, as of Sunday 1/9/2022 the Las Vegas Raiders have punched their ticket to the 2021-2022 NFL playoffs. The Raiders clinched their Wildcard spot in an insane OT win over the LA Chargers. Just a quick refresher for context of how this could have played out. Either team wins they eliminate the loser from the playoffs and the Steelers get in. They tie and they both get in, but the Steelers are eliminated from the playoffs. At first the Raiders seemed like they had this game in the bag, until Justin Herbert decided he just didn't feel like losing that night. Multiple 4th and long conversions in the last 5 minutes of the game, and a touchdown in literally the last seconds to tie the game for overtime. Both teams get field goals and now it's Raiders ball. The Raiders are running down the clock running the ball, and according to Carr and Bisaccia they were prepared to just take the tie. That was until LA called a time out, so the Raiders decided to just go for the game winning kick and take playoff ticket if LA didn't want to tie.
Will we ever see a 3 division UFC champion??
At the time of publishing this article, we're about a week removed from UFC 269 where Amanda Nunes dropped her 135lb title to Julianna Pena. No sleep lost for Amanda though, she still has her 145lb belt and there's definitely no Featherweights coming to challenge her any time soon. I mean MAYBE if the UFC signs Kayla Harrison and she drops down to Featherweight. But that's a big if. So yeah, Amanda's 145lb belt is going to stay safe around her waist for a very long time.
Double champ Valentina?
Very recently I published an article discussing the future of the UFC Women's Featherweight division now that Amanda has dropped her Bantamweight belt to Julianna Pena. While writing said article, I very briefly talked about their rematch. Then; Valentina's rematch against Amanda then came to mind. This was/is a very controversial victory for Amanda. We'll never see the trilogy though, but that's fine. However, let's say Amanda loses the rematch against Pena, doesn't take the rematch at all, or decides to wait for the rematch for some tune up fights first. What if Valentia steps up and wants Pena's Bantamweight belt?
UFC Women's Featherweight division
At the time of publishing this article, it has only been a few days since Julianna Pena's crazy upset victory over Amanda Nunes for her Bantamweight title at UFC 269, on 12/11/2021. Which got me thinking, sure Amanda and Pena are definitely going to run it back for an immediate rematch. They absolutely have to and Pena immediately offered a rematch, but as it stands we're waiting on Amanda's word for a rematch. Let's say it doesn't happen though for whatever weird reason. What about Amanda's Featherweight belt, what is she and the UFC going to do with that belt?
He was born on a Monday
"OPEN UP ELEVEN!" The guard shouts. Leading a scared young adult to his new cell. We're introduced to Jason.. 5'10 medium dark hair, fair skin, a decent build but not overtly muscular, nothing all that spectacular at first glance. The only obvious feature was he was clearly in over his head. He was trying his best to hide it but his eyes were filled with dreed.
The animal inside
My name is Garfield Logan, but please call me Garth. Boy do I have an interesting story to tell you. I don't know how I should tell you this but I have some interesting, abilities. I still don't completely understand my powers, I don't even know how I really got them but that's not really important. There are shape shifters, I think. But I can't think of any other metahumans that can do what I can do. For some weird reason, I have the ability to change into any animal I want. Oddly, I always turn out green for some reason which is strange but again that's besides the point. The first time I had a transformation I was just walking in the woods when a mountain lion came out of no where. I was absolutely terrified but I remembered the rules, never run because it will trigger their predatory instincts. Instead, you should stand your ground against a mountain lion. Make yourself as large as possible and make as much noise as possible, and the lion will back off. So that's exactly what I did. However when I did something very strange happened, the roar I made sounded exactly like the roar of a bear. Almost immediately the lion ran off back into the woods. I'd never made a sound that loud. And when I looked down I saw my hands turning into paws and felt myself getting taller. Apparently I transformed into a bear. Thankfully for me I wasn't stuck as a bear, I actually transformed back into myself very quickly but it was scary to say the least.
Have a Hardcore Halloween
For as long as I can remember: Halloween has/is/ and will always be hands down my favorite holiday and in general favorite time of the year. From the costumes, music, parties, cool/cold weather, and the spooky atmosphere I love everything Halloween has to offer. Shame it only comes around once a year. Now we all know the classics for this time of the year. Songs like: Monster Mash, Thriller, This is Halloween, I put a spell on you, etc are all classics. I love them all, however I already know they're going to be discussed to death in general let alone for this challenge. So I decided why not throw in my own choices for songs that can easily become classics give the chance. As always in no particular order.
Retirement, what an odd word to be saying this young. I know I've been through a lot over the years. But I feel great, my body feels fantastic and my mind is still sharp as ever. But here we are. Deep in the Washington bush near the Canadian border I have my own little town. I built everything here with my own two hands.
