A Woman in Baseball
Living in a baseball town like St. Louis, people learn a lot about baseball. The New York Yankees have won the most World Series Championships. Marc McGwire hit 583 home runs in his career and had over 1,400 RBIs (runs batted in). Ozzie Smith was a 15 time All Star. Babe Ruth hit 714 home runs in his career but also led the league in strike outs 5 times. Everybody knows this.
Helmets Don't Save Lives
The conversation on concussion prevention within American football cannot be had without discussing why. The right question to ask is not why concussions occur but why it’s important to limit and prevent them. Within the last decade, a multitude of former NFL players who have been diagnosed with a brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) have taken their own lives. This is not a coincidence but a serious reality faced by real people. Does this mean that the long-term effects of repeated concussions can lead to severe brain changes? Evidently, and if so, what exactly are those changes and just how damaging can the effects be?
I will never forget that day. I was three weeks out of my surgery that took place on January 7th 2020. Jaw surgery to correct my bite. God, it was the worst thing in history for me at the time. I was forced to have my mouth wired shut for three weeks and had to stay on a liquid diet for that entire span. Soup went from delicious to, “Oh my God. If I eat this again, i’m going to throw up.” I couldn’t brush my teeth. I couldn’t sleep properly. My face still had a bit of swelling. On the 25th, my surgeon said that my wires could come off. Finally, it’s over! For celebration, me and my mother planned to celebrate the next day by having brunch at our favorite spot in Warren.

Documentary Review: 'ESPN 30 for 30: Al Davis vs the NFL'
ESPN 30 for 30 has become a haven for documentary filmmakers eager to find unique ways to tell familiar stories. The documentary format can tend to be a very homogenous artform, always very similar and familiar in structure and presentation. Thus a series such as 30 for 30 can feel a little rote after a while. To change that, documentary filmmakers need to get creative and find little ways to set themselves apart from the rest.
Advanced players and coaches Table tennis
At the end of the summer market, and a few days before the transfer was completed, overwhelmed the player's entourage by declaring He is not a minimum wage or an unemployed person, he must respect his employer.

Battle of Florida in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs
On Friday, the Tampa Bay Lightning lost to the Dallas Stars by a score of 5-2, which gave the Central Division title to the Carolina Hurricanes. Why is that important? Because Carolina clinching first place officially locks in the first Stanley Cup Playoff series of this season, and for the first time ever, the Tampa Bay Lightning will face off against the Florida Panthers in a best-of-seven playoff series. These two teams have co-existed together for 28 years; the Lightning debuted in 1992, while the Panthers joined the league a year later in 1993. Though even then, the Lightning had a leg up on their in-state rivals, as their debut was the big story of the 1992-93 season, while the Panthers were pretty much overshadowed in the 1993-94 season, by the relocation of the Minnesota North Stars to Dallas, and the debut of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
30 Years: A Look at the San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks have always fascinated me as a hockey fan. They debuted in the NHL in 1991, becoming Northern California's second and most successful attempt at an NHL franchise, after the failure of the Oakland Seals/California Golden Seals. This season, the Sharks are currently celebrating 30 years as a franchise, but this is actually their 29th season of play--their 30th playing season will occur next year. This team has been good for their entire existence, but can't seem to go far. Here's a look at their complete history.
UFC 361 – The Joys Of Technical Striking and Freedom
Thanks to the visionary leadership of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – the man most likely to save America – UFC 361 delivered a series of enthralling match-ups staged in front of a live audience. The happy attendees cheered, booed, and devoured the action like a sport-starved audience might be expected. Face masks were mercifully few and far between fresh air was also on the menu.
Football, Two Boxers, Life ( Death )
I left a single observation about women playing football out of the last piece I submitted, this being that females have proportionately shorter arms than do males. I mention this because when I played as a defensive player I used my arms extensively to push, shove and tackle.
2020 sports run-down: keeping the ball rolling, motivation for a stronger 2021
If anyone will ask how 2020 went in the world of sports, I think the answer is pretty obvious. With the absence of contact-sports and the overhauled format of some just to be in line with the COVID-19 protocols, 2020 has been an unprecedented year for athletes and fans alike.
Rick Woolsey Detroit
Better Boxing Parallel to Strength and Endurance According to Rick Woolsey Detroit. If you've seen a boxing match, you've seen how a fighter must be able to make quick and explosive motions, such as punching and trying to dodge their opponent's blows, over the duration of the bout, which can last anywhere from 8 to 15 rounds according to experience of Rick Woolsey Detroit. To ensure they have the strength and conditioning required to win a fight, boxers must combine resistance and endurance training while preparing for a fight. The basics of fitness are the same if you're training to be a boxer or just want to get in better shape. Lifting weights should be your primary goal if you want to boost your ability. Cardiovascular activities should be your primary priority if you want to boost your conditioning. If you want to develop your strength and conditioning as a boxer, we suggest some basic boxing conditioning exercises, some of which you can do with only your body weight and others that include the use of specific pieces of equipment.
