The Underlying Issue with NBA Fans' Basketball Knowledge
During the postgame press conference of a Friday night matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers on January 9, 2021, Warriors forward Draymond Green was asked this question, “Do you wish defense was seen, like, in a sexier way? That like, being in good position, or staying vertical...that’s just as good as, potentially, hitting a splashy 3, but it’s the 3 that ends up on the highlight reel?”
The State of the UFC's Lightweight Title Picture
The 155-pound weight division in the UFC has been described as a murderers' row, and there is no better way to put it. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the top of the mountain though, where it is pretty cloudy at the moment.
So College Football...what's next?
With the Big Ten & Pac-12 cancelling Fall Sports and my Sooners having 9 New Positive Tests Yesterday the future of the 2020 College Football Season has never been more bleak. Trevor Lawrence, arguably the sports biggest current star, made the last ditch plea to the Power 5 before the Big Ten & Pac-12 voted with this post:
Athletics: When barefoot Bikila became a global sensation
I know my father was a decent rugby player and an accomplished boxer during his national service, but I’m not really sure where his reverence for the world’s greatest distance runners emanated from.

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
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.

Hank Aaron made the Blueprint for the Black Athlete
Hank Aaron was how I would have imagined Jackie Robinson to be if he had lived in my lifetime. He was cool, calm and collected despite playing under some of the harshest conditions a human could endure. Robinson was the first to endure the racial harassment that enabled Aaron’s success, but Hank was the one who dominated despite of.

Several NHL players have reported abuse by their coaches, such as Theo Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy who were abused by Graham James, their coach when they were teenagers. Most notably, several members of US National and Olympic Gymnastic teams reported abuse by the team doctor, Larry Nassar.
Mariano Rivera Brings Energy to Appearance at Acura of Bedford Hills
Professional athletes have two things in abundance that most of us do not: time and money. Inevitably, inertia must draw them to causes and foundations, and Mariano Rivera is no different than any other. “I believe in today’s youth. We created this foundation to help kids who are less fortunate and get their focus on school rather than the uncertainty of the streets,” he said at Bedford Hills Acura on Saturday afternoon. But it was the infectious energy and illumination around young fans that made him a man of his words.

My favorite wrestling heels
For those of you unfamiliar with professional wrestling lingo, to be a heel means you're the bad guy in the story. To be a heel; you do bad things. You can cheat, you can talk bad about the crowd or the good guy wrestler, or even set up fake alliances and betray your partner. Then worst of all, if you're in the WWE you can join the Authority and side with "the man". Let's take a look at some of my favorite wrestling heels.
