    Tennis: When Hoad was king of the castle

    If 2020 had gone to plan, the UK would currently be in the middle of the Wimbledon tennis fortnight, with Serbia’s Novak Djokovic probably still in the running to defend his title and secure a sixth championship crown.

    A look into Lamelo Ball

    A look into Lamelo Ball

    The 2020 NBA draft sports some famous names with many of the players being in the spotlight since high school, Cole Anthony, James Wiseman, Onyeka Okongwu and Anthony Edwards are just some of the highly anticipated athletes that we've all been waiting for. But of all these names Lamelo Ball is possibly the most popular one. Lamelo has been on our screens since he was 15 years old back when he played at Chino Hills with his brothers Lonzo and Liangelo where he spent a lot of his time running around defences and taking shots from half court. But now he's 18 years old and about to enter the draft so it's time to take a look at his skillset his physical attributes and discuss how well he could do in the NBA.

    Temper the Hate

    The 2020 year is apparently the year of “the unexpected”. At least that’s what it seems like up until this point. As we are all well aware, COVID is the culprit in this widespread disruption to all phases of life with many wishing to return to “normalcy”. I’m sure the virus’s influence will not disappear when it comes to baseball as the pandemic continues to spread here in the United States. Yet, we have been blessed with good news this week; MLB and specifically Rob Manfred announced that baseball would resume on July 23rd.

    Confessions of a Baseball Fan

    2007 American League Championship Series Game 6. Red Sox are down three games to two in the series to the Cleveland Indians. I’m talking shit about J.D. Drew the whole way down route 93 from Colebrook, N.H. to Boston, Mass. He hadn’t been hitting well and I think I have the answer. “Move Ellsbury over and put CoCo in; J.D.’s done- he’s a bum. Schilling’s on the mound and he’s a ground ball pitcher. We’ll be ok. We don’t need Drew’s glove in the outfield tonight.”

    Without fans, it just isn't the same

    Without fans, it just isn't the same

    It seems like a lifetime ago that we were allowed to hop onto aeroplanes and fly to cities that would show us a little additional piece of the world puzzle. It was a regular occurrence for me to travel all over the United Kingdom and various other locations in Europe because of the work that I do. I work in the sport television industry and the last destination that I got to enjoy visiting was the magnificent Rome. Thus my flashback encompasses the sad truth that we cannot gather together at sporting events anymore, something I most certainly will never take for granted again.

    The Flower That Will Flourish Forever | In Memoriam of Hana Kimura

    The Flower That Will Flourish Forever | In Memoriam of Hana Kimura

    It's been a day since I found out about the death of Hana Kimura. Some people may know her as the reality tv star from Terrace House but to me and many others, she was a talented pro-wrestler who had a big future ahead of her. She was undoubtedly one of my favorite wrestlers not just in Stardom, but in the whole pro-wrestling industry in general. The news of her passing and taking her own life has gutted me and made it difficult to breathe. Up until now, I am still in disbelief and cannot seem to wrap my head around the fact that she is gone.

    The Skate Bible: Origins (1950 - 1975)

    Okay, so picture this. It's the early 1950's. You're in California standing over a golden beach and ocean of opportunity. You're clutching on to your surfboard with your soul in the sea and your eyes dazzling beneath the glimmer of the sun. But, those waves you're planning on riding – they're nowhere to be seen. The sea is settled and you're left wandering aimlessly with a thirst for the adrenaline coursing from the depths of the deep blue. You're drifting away into mindless boredom – and you need an escape. You need something fresh and exciting to kill the bad vibe and fill you with ecstasy.

    John Jay's Samantha Gisonni Opens a Hole in the Roof at Pace Basketball Tournament

    There's nothing like it in sports. The defense collapses around the ball, the court opens up, a pass or two puts the perimeter players on the run, and someone is left open at the top of the three-point arc. Then - oblivious to the laws of motion, gravity and planetary physics - you wait until the centripetal force in consideration nestles in the nylon and blows the roof off Madison Square Garden.

    The 3 Best NBA Draft Classes In The Modern Era In Order

    In March, the Corona Virus forced the NBA to take an unexpected and unheard of hiatus. Now, it's been four months without basketball, and last week we passed the scheduled date for this years' NBA Draft. For a number of NBA fans, the off season is just as entertaining as the regular season, and we are missing it. As of now, the NBA is scheduled to return at the end of July, with the draft now taking place in October. So, while the world waits and waits and waits for professional sports to make their return, I look back on the best NBA Draft classes of all time.

    Breaking through barriers

    Breaking through barriers

    Does reaching out matter? When a sport makes an effort to include a new audience, does it make a difference? It’s easy to be cynical, especially when confronted with Akim Aliu’s stark take-down of racism in hockey or the recent Brendan Liepsics scandal, complete with hints that his comments may be sadly commonplace in pro hockey. Suddenly, all the noble talk about inclusivity can feel like so much window dressing while age-old prejudice lives on.

    AFRICAN CULTURE MADE HOCKEY PROFITABLE

    AFRICAN CULTURE MADE HOCKEY PROFITABLE

    Growing up as an African American, many innovations created and lead by people of African descent was unbeknownst to me. Institutions typically designate a month to highlight African American history. My recollection continuously recalls being habitually indoctrinated about slavery, segregation, and about prominent figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth, etc. It wasn’t until I discovered self-education, and luckily recieved the funding to obtain higher education that I became acquainted with a wealth of knowledge about African American history. I believe it is crucial to inform other brown people of their origins and culture to create a space for our greatness into the consensus knowledge and to hopefully inspire black historians, anthropologist, and etc. to discover, highlight, and preserve African history.

    Britain's 'Miracle on Ice'

    Britain's 'Miracle on Ice'

    It all came to a head 12 months ago. March 20, 2019. Kosice, Slovakia. Great Britain’s ice hockey team was approaching the end of its first World Championship campaign since 1994. The equation was simple. Defeat France, and the Brits would remain in the Elite Pool – something the country hadn’t achieved since 1950. Lose, and it would be a swift return to the second tier.
