You know there are so many opinions going on about this Lamar Odom situation. Was it the Lakers fault? Was it the Kardashian’s? What kind of demons was he dealing with? One thing that we all did (myself included) is sit back and find his pain entertaining. How many of us retweeted and laughed at Lamar Odom’s high adventures. Whether it was rapping, or just whatever random mess the media got a hold of. Though people did find it funny (myself included) we really did ignore the fact that maybe he’s really going through a lot in his life. It…

Wow it’s week 4 already, the NFL season is a quarter of the way over. Let’s let that sink in for a bit, because it’s depressing. With that being said I want to address the elephant in the room. The New England Patriots are on a mission! It’s been such a terrible off-season for the patriots organization being labeled as cheaters once again. People trying to nullify their championship, everyone thinking that Tom Brady is just not as great because of a football that he possibly had a hand in deflating. All of these headlines looming over the Patriots and…

We all know of the teams that are stacked and ready to make a push for playoffs this year. The Colts, The Packers, The Patriots, The Broncos, The Seahawks. But every year the NFL has at least one team that we did not expect to put up any kind of fight and then they make a playoff push. I’ve watched this entire off-season and I’ve seen what additions teams have made, and this year is going to be another fun year. So here are the top 3 underrated teams to look out for. 3.) TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS I know that…

When you read about so many athletes going broke after making millions upon millions, usually all of us are baffled. How can someone simply blow that much money? We don’t look at the problem that maybe they don’t have the proper education. They’ve been pampered (some of them) just so they can make the bare minimum for grades and continue to make millions for the school. Ryan Broyles story is someone that every athlete should be looking to, it should make you hopeful for this generation. Sadly, so many of us get caught in this illusion of a lifestyle that…

This post is going to be written off pure excitement. FOOTBALL IS BACK! People, the summer is the best/worst time of the year. Though it’s often filled with relaxation and cookouts, we also get no sports. The NBA season is over and we have dead season for at least 3 months. Sportscenter talks about absolutely nothing, they merely reflect on the past events of the year and talk about gossip it seems like. But we no longer have to worry about that. We have our first game of the season. Granted it’s a pre-season game which means about as much…

Serena Jameka Williams: gorgeous, role model, hard worker, philanthropist, a great sport, dominant, playful, and warm, yet somehow I still keep seeing articles that are trying to discredit her. I’m going to put out an article that’s about her impact on tennis, as well as the world, because she deserves to be praised for the outstanding individual that she is. Serena as a tennis player has done something that very few athletes do. She dominates in a sport that houses both men and women, and has broken nearly all the records for both men and women. Serena plays each and…

To understand what Cameron Jerrell Newton means to the Carolina Panthers organization, you have to start at the beginning; right before his 2011 rookie campaign. Fresh off an NFL worst 2-14 record and trying to find an identity after the end of the Jake Delhomme Era, the Panthers were without direction. The answer for the QB position (leader) was not on the roster, and the success rate of old veterans or project QB’s was dismal. The panthers also were without a coach who had been a part of the organization for almost a decade. They needed change, they needed a…

I was at my friend’s house one day, and we were all watching T.V. Then his mom perks up and says “We need to turn it to NBC, the Belmont is about to come on.” I looked around and was wondering, what in the world is the Belmont? We flip to the channel and boom there it is, it’s horse racing. Of course I’ve heard of horse racing before but I’ve never watched it, and I’ve got to say, horse racing is quite exciting to watch! I don’t know why I got so into it, but it was like when…

Legacy, something that someone has achieved and continues to exist after they stop working or die. That’s the best definition I could find for the word legacy as it pertains to the sports world. It’s a word that gets brought up often when trying to determine a player’s greatness and what they mean to the sport. Often legacies and careers are compared to arbitrarily rank players against one another. Guys can’t help but rank and compare things whether it’s in sports, music or wings: Brady vs Montana, Jay-Z vs Nas, Hooters vs Buffalo Wild Wings. It’s just another way for…
