"The fame is great, but you can't take your foot off the pedal. Everyone wants your title."
The modern golf industry has gained great momentum and has gradually turned into a business. Golf is especially popular as a subject of children’s education. It can be taught at schools. There is a huge number of golf coaches, and there are numerous tournaments. Starting training courses from an early age is now quite simple—the main thing left to do is to select the path of development of a little golfer accurately.
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.
The National Football League was taken by storm when the New England Patriots signed the best wide out in the league Antonio Brown. Brown was released after having a verbal altercation with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis on top of the drama-filled training camp about his helmet issues, his injury to his feet from a cryotherapy mishap, calling out Juju, falling out with his former quarterback Ben Rothlesburger.
The 2019 NBA draft happened hours ago. The top player that everyone was paying attention to the 6'7, 285-pound freshman and all-American forward from Duke University: Zion Williamson. Williamson was the first round and first pick, who was selected by The New Orleans Pelicans. We have seen phenoms in basketball in frequency over the last 20 years, and the number of phenoms get even smaller if you go back 30 to 50 years. Zion Williamson is in a class by himself, solely based on his statuesque 6'7 and 285-pound frame, along with his freakish strength and damn near superhuman leaping ability as part of his athletic pedigree. For those basketball fans who have been paying attention to the league since the 2003 draft, the way Zion Williamson's ability is being described is similar to, if not the same as, the 2003 first round, first draft pick LeBron James, who was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron is now regarded as the best basketball player on the planet, and now, young Zion has even been called by some as the second coming of LeBron James. I can agree with that, on the physical prowess alone. Both Zion and LeBron both play high about the rim, and are great rebounds and shot blockers (LeBron in his prime and middle years of his career). Young Zion Williamson has parts of his game that need work, but there's no doubt that he can play at a high level.
Yes, you read that headline correctly. Without Bill Belichick running his defenses, Bill Parcells's record as a head coach in the NFL is 68-80-1. That is a winning percentage of just 0.460.
I’ve played sports my whole life. They are a teacher, a test of character and provide an outlet that helps guide us along the journey of life. But this human necessity had been disproportionally denied our sisters—until Title IX was passed. In recent years, though, the landmark legislation has come under criticism. Organizations like the College Sports Council (CSC) claim that striving for women’s equality has unfairly resulted in numerous cuts to men’s sports programs. Wrestling, men’s gymnastics, and tennis are typically among the programs that leave men out in the cold. But before I flush out the facts, let’s cherish the history first.
As it seemed that after having a dominating season in 2018, the Bears would once again be superbowl contenders. Despite the loss of defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who took the head coaching job for the Denver Broncos, they picked up another defensive mastermind in Chuck Pagano (former Indianapolis Colts head coach). With maybe a minor step back for the #1 ranked defense with the switching of defensive coordinators, the offense which was on and off during the whole last season, was bound to take the next step forward. High praise from the coaches that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky would improve off his 24 touchdowns to only 12 interceptions which is not bad at all. With taking more helm to the offense and being able to change the plays at the line of scrimmage was expected but what actually happened was the opposite. So what happened to this Super Bowl contending team?
In terms of sport endeavour, the USA as a nation does come top of the pile. They always boss the Olympics when it comes around every four years, and are strong competitors in many other sports around the world. However, America is perhaps strongest at its own sports: namely American football, baseball and basketball. You can tell they’re so America-centric that when international games are played in those sports, America aren’t normally allowed to compete at their full strength. In the IFAF World Championships of American Football, the USA are only allowed to name amateur players and no professionals in the NFL. And they’ve still won the last three editions. But how do they fare on the world stage with multinational sports like soccer (association football), rugby and cricket? Let’s find out.
