No matter the sport, I absolutely love sports. Minus soccer, I'm sorry but I never can appreciate soccer no matter how hard I try. It's just not for me. Again, I'm sorry. Anyways throughout history there are some crazy matches that for one reason or another we were robbed of. Now let me explain which events I will be including, very simply these athletes would have needed to be active during these hypothetical events. So, for example I will not be discussing Bill Russell vs Shaq to see who the better center is. Or like, Mohammad Ali vs Tyson Fury. However, I will bring out the time machine for a future article if this article gets some good feedback.
My name is Vince Morales, I'm a mixed martial artist fighting and competing in the UFCs bantamweight division. Being a professional athlete was always a dream of mine. Zero clue that meant I'd be locked in a cage with some of the most savage human beings from all over the world. In retrospect these moments are insane and I'll forever be grateful where my life has taken me. In the moment, personally, I'm more focused on the task at hand. That's what I'm writing about. We may never know what really goes through each fighters mind while being in there but this is a small collection of the thoughts that fly through my own mind every split second of the fight. This was my first big UFC fight and it was taken on two weeks notice. I get the offer and I fly directly to Beijing to take on one of their hottest prospects who happens to be coming off three knockout wins. Each one of those knockouts earning him a fifty thousand dollar bonus. This is what fighting is all about. Despite the circumstances, realizing the only thing that matters is what's in front of you and you have to overcome the obstacle. Everything I ever wanted.

One of my favorite memories (or series of memories) here in Arizona might surprise some people. When I think of memories, I joyfully remember the Arizona Cardinals football games that Brian took the girls & me to. We were excited to ask the girls' mother if they could join us, and then Brian bought four season tickets. He enjoys football & I love being able to share in the activities that make him happy. However, sports have not ever been my “thing”, especially football!
Over the fallout and fast-track of a name change, I began corresponding with Washington football fans. I was curious to hear how they felt about the situation and their solutions.
Everyone’s heard the famous Yogi Berra-isms, with their odd syntax and convoluted logic. Even things he didn’t say, but could have, are attributed to him. But amidst all the well-deserved acclaim for Berra, there is a forgotten man. He played second fiddle to Yogi on the field, and now in legacy. He broke the color line for the Yankees, a scant ten years after Jackie Robinson (the Yankees might have been late in hiring a black player, but that had nothing to do with the fact that their fan base consisted of corporate CEOs and Bronx italians...they probably just couldn’t find any talented black players in the 50s). He was number 32, the fairly-good Elston Howard.
