    Somers Wipes Away Earlier Defeat with 42-6 Victory over Yorktown

    Earlier this year Somers and Yorktown faced off as undefeated Class A powerhouses. Both teams battled up and down the field before the Huskers pulled away in the final minutes. So a packed house at Mahopac High School had to be sitting in wait of another titanic struggle. But the Tuskers clearly suffered a memory lapse and gave the Huskers a stinging 42-6 defeat that they may never forget.

    Only in America Cheaters Prevail in Sports

    Yes, only in Ameria can an athlete or team cheat and win a championship. The message that is sold to our youth is that cheaters will get fined and suspended, but cheating still counts when winning the whole thing. This is wrong at so many levels! American leagues should start punishing athletes and teams that get caught cheating with the ultimate punishment. That ultimate punishment should be to strip all of their trophies away. Does it happen? Nope! Only measly fines and weak suspension get handed out.

    2019-2020 Utah Jazz in Review

    We are nearing the end of 2019 and the Utah Jazz are currently sitting at 20-12, good for 6th place in the West. Honestly, this year has not been what I had expected for the Jazz. Lots of ups and downs with the team, but in general, I am satisfied and believe that if the Jazz can keep it up, they have a shot of making the Western Conference Finals. Let's take a look at what this year has been like.

    Thumbs Up

    Thumbs Up

    In the summer of 2015 I took an internship in rural Vermont. Living on my own for the first time, I made sure to bring all the essentials for a summer of learning and growth; lots of non-perishable food items, sunblock, and most importantly my waterski. The internship site resided 400 yards shy of placid Lake Fairlee, and I hoped there might be a generous boater willing to give me a pull.

    Whenever the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) comes to Madison Square Garden, they always pack the card with very good fights from top to bottom. The UFC 244 event this past Saturday night did not disappoint because there were seven KO's or TKO's out of the twelve fights that were in the early preliminary bouts, in the preliminary bouts, and in the main card. Without further ado, let us take a look at the stoppages.

    5 Tips to Run Faster and Avoid Shin Splints

    5 Tips to Run Faster and Avoid Shin Splints

    As someone with firsthand experience, I can confirm that shin splints are a huge pain both physically and figuratively. When I began running track in high school, shin splints were the number one biggest complaint from my peers and the most common reason for my teammates to sit out of practices and meets. I assumed that shin splints were an inevitable reality of being an athlete, so I never thought about ways to avoid them. When I first got shin splints in my sophomore year of high school, I realized just how disruptive they are and how much of a damper they can put not just on an athlete’s career, but in all aspects of life. So I set out to do some research and see what I could do to prevent ever having to deal with shin splints again, and I’m going to share what I know with you today.

    He was pencil thin and walked with a limp. A thirteen year-old boy with huge yearning eyes, who was always an unlucky patient on the children's floor of the hospital, where my youngest daughter was all too often incarcerated. Curtis had sickle cell anemia, an incurable, painful, and terminal disease that plagues young people of African descent.

    Glima: The Martial Art Created by the Vikings

    When the Norsemen sailed out of Scandinavia, they quickly cultivated a bloody and fearsome reputation. Brutal warriors and vicious raiders, they were also skilled sailors and navigators, and they established trade networks from the British Isles all the way to Constantinople (where many Norsemen joined the Varangian Guard, acting as the personal bodyguards to the Eastern Roman emperors).

    10 Amazing World Series Facts You Can Use to Impress Your Friends

    10 Amazing World Series Facts You Can Use to Impress Your Friends

    The World Series is an American tradition that has been happening annually since before any of us were born. It is part of our culture in the United States, and it brings the country together in a way that makes us forget our differences for a little while. Every year we sit in suspense, hoping for our team will bring home The Commissioner's Trophy, but also so that maybe we can see a world record or two being broken. Watching live as a record is broken is an awe-inspiring experience, and is one of the few, true joys of being a fan of this storied game. However, if you have never been present during one of these record breaking moments, it’s almost definite that you’ve heard about them at least once. Taking note of the more amazing World Series facts will not only impress your friends, but may just be exactly what you’ll need to start a lifelong relationship with the game of baseball.

    With a 7-6 victory over second seeded South Orangetown on June 2, Somers 11U Red Storm won the Greater Hudson Valley Baseball League Championship. The success came on the heels of a season long “Spartan” mantra that demanded team first and always sticking together, according to Head Coach John Barbagallo. But no matter the level of team cohesion, adversity can cause a breakdown, and Somers faced such a moment in the fourth inning of the semifinal game versus Briarcliff.

    Somers Defeats Vestal 45-39 and Heads to Final Four

    On Saturday at Pace University, Somers and Vestal played a sustained back and forth until midway through the third quarter of the New York State Regional Semifinal. But in stepped Somers’ top gun Hannah Angelini to finally upset the balance and begin busting the bracket for the Section One champs. She went off the dribble for Somers’ final fourth to tie the score at 27 and then drove the lane to put Vestal in back for good in the Tuskers 45-39 victory.

    How To Take a Punch (3 Tips)

    How To Take a Punch (3 Tips)

    Whenever you watch an action hero on the silver screen, the camera tends to focus on them winning fights. In fact, between expert technique, a rock hard physique, and an iron jaw there's no possibility the hero could ever lose; foes fall with broken faces and shattered spirits under the hammer blows of their fists, but when the bad guys get a solid blow in the hero just keeps on coming. On the one hand this could be blatant abuse of main character powers... on the other hand it's entirely possible that our lead has simply learned the most important skill any fighter needs to have in his or her arsenal.

    How To Put Someone in The Guillotine Chokehold

    How To Put Someone in The Guillotine Chokehold

    Every guy out there wants to learn how to fight. It's why we shell out huge amounts of cash for martial arts lessons, read up on combat strategies from around the world, and watch professionals in the ring. What we're hoping is that we'll learn the secret that'll turn us into a Hollywood-style action star. The unfortunate reality of fights that take place off the silver screen, though, is that 9 times out of 10 they go to the ground. So it doesn't really matter if you've mastered the spinning butteryfly scissor kick if you have no ground game. Fortunately, grappling is just another martial art, and one of the simplest holds you can put an opponent in is called the Guillotine. Sounds fearsome huh? Well, it's also relatively simple to do.

    The Uneven Ice in the NHL

    January 4th, 2020, saw an afternoon NHL game being played between the Minnesota Wild and the visiting Winnipeg Jets. The one consistency throughout the game was the constantly inconsistent calls, which led to the overtime victory for the home team. The need to hold the officials, who are all members of the NHLOA (National Hockey League Officials Association) is needed, especially when there are games such as this called, and players being injured and no retribution being made in the form of missed calls.

    It’s NHL Season: Stay Safe in the Stands

    In March 2002, a girl named Brittanie Cecil lost her life after an accident at a Columbus Blue Jackets game two days before her 14th birthday. A hockey puck flew into the stands and struck the young girl in the left temple, causing a traumatic brain injury that would prove fatal a few days later. It was the first time in the National Hockey League’s history a fan died because of a flying puck. Now, over 17 years later, it is still just as important for NHL fans to practice spectator safety.
