Roman Reigns: A World Class Heel
Have you ever watched a television show or a movie and had one character just blow your mind? It seems like you are being drawn into this certain character and nothing will ever change…but then it does. As an audience or a viewer, things grow stale and we crave more. The same can be said for superstars in the wrestling industry.
Presenting the Cleveland Guardians
On July 23, 2021, it was announced that Cleveland's MLB franchise will now be known as the Guardians, with the news being broken on Twitter. The franchise debuted in 1894 as the Grand Rapids Rustlers for their first six seasons, until undergoing three different name changes between 1900 and 1902. In 1903, they became the Cleveland Napoleons (shortened to "Naps"), named after their star player, Napoleon "Nap" Lajoie, but after Lajoie's departure following the 1914 season, the team adopted their long time familiar name: the Cleveland Indians.

George as in Steinbrenner
No matter what you thought of George Steinbrenner and his escapades over the years you’ll have to admit that baseball has lost one of the great owners of all time when the Yankee chief passed away.
How mental is the game of football? Some may think that you have to be in physical peak shape which is correct. But also maintain healthy dieting and building your body just to be torn apart over the course of now eighteen weeks. But I want to talk about the mental aspect of the game and my prime example will be the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs match up over the past four years including the upcoming game this year. In their first meeting Baltimore was the visiting team at Arrowhead Stadium in 2018, Heisman winning quarterback and MVP Lamar Jackson rookie year and with only a few starts under his belt. On the other side is Patrick Mahomes an generational talent at the quarterback position, former MVP, and super bowl champion. KC pulled out a tight victory due to some hero’s plays from Mahomes and Tyreek Hill, edging a 27-24 win. The next year it was a 33-28 win for Kansas City, Baltimore started off aggressive with the run game but steered away from the gameplan and quickly fell behind to only claw their way back in the game but still came up short and 2020 was the exact same, losing 34-20 in Baltimore.
Basketball was my first love; she was there before my Queens and the bevy of Co-Eds that came along once they saw us together. She was there in the beginning; I was an 8-year-old unknown baller. We rode together on my bike to the Spindale House to sign up to play with her. Our love affair only increased when I got my own later that year, I took her to the Carver Middle school ball field.
An introduction to the game of bowls
What we Brits (and citizens of other Commonwealth countries) call bowls is known in the US and elsewhere as lawn bowls, to distinguish it from the mechanised skittles game played in bowling alleys. Bowls is a game that has much more variety and subtlety to it, which is perhaps why it has not really caught on in America!

We Need to Talk About the Olympics
As you may know a female sprinter named Sha’Carri Richardson was supposed to compete in the Tokyo Olympics this summer but was suspended over a positive cannabis test. Considering that they also banned Soul Caps which are designed for black hair, I think it’s pretty obvious that the Olympics is racist. However, I have a lot more receipts to share.
