An Open Letter to the Fencing Club Poor Sport
Dear Sir, Allow me to make my role clear to you, sir. I am your opponent. That means – I oppose you. It is not my job to stand there like a crash test dummy and uncomplainingly absorb all your too-hard whip attacks. If I know that you like to use too-hard whip attacks, the evidence of which I am now wearing on my arm and back in the form of long purple bruises, I am going to keep using point in line to keep you at a distance with the point of my sabre, because I don’t like absorbing too-hard whip attacks. Please know that your heavy-handed, flailing-n00b’s style has all the finesse of a compound fracture, and seeing as how I don’t like pain, I will go to extensive lengths to avoid it. Please also be aware that fencing is a sport, not an excuse for you to beat the snot out of people with a three-foot metal whip, and that anger management counseling resources are available for people like you.

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.

An Address to Any and All Avalanche Fans
What was supposed to be a dream season for the Colorado Avalanche came to an abrupt end, as the team was ousted in six games by the Vegas Golden Knights in the West Division Final.

Colorado's next two games would see them lose complete momentum against the Knights, resulting in back-to-back road losses, and while Game Five saw them go up 2-0 entering the third period, the Knights came back in the third and won in overtime.

Hawks lost last night...
Game 2 Hawks: 102 76'ers: 118 Yes we lost. I'm gonna write about this game only because I can't end the streak of writing on the morning after each game. The more I write about us losing, the more frustrated I'm gonna get. And honestly, its been a good morning so far. I got up at 5:00 am, turned on some Harry Potter, had a breakfast burrito, showered, I even did some laundry. It's 7:45 now and I am just sitting down with my coffee to write this blog. But I really don't feel like typing a huge essay to try to explain last nights loss and ruin my mood in the process. If I were to get into all the details of how the game went, I'd just get more and more mad having to replay everything in my head. So imma keep it simple.
