NBA Offseason Winners and Losers

By all accounts, this was the wildest NBA offseason we have ever witnessed. It kicked off back in June with what experts are calling one of the deepest and most talented draft classes in recent memory. Then came free agency and with it the now typical exorbitant spending on colossal contracts for slightly above average...

The Weekly List: Baring It All

How much weight can a single sentence have? Is there a formula or method for writing powerful sentences? Sentence (n.): A set of words that is complete in itself…conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made a decision back in 2004 that he would take a stand against the use of performance-enhancing drugs in a big way by testing players for illegal substances and levying suspensions on those who had been caught. Back then, the penalty for a first-time offender was a ten day suspension, which…

Today’s media would probably describe a player like Oscar Robertson as arrogant, selfish, undiplomatic, and at times an outright dick. In truth, this account of the man we remember today as ‘The Big O” isn’t necessarily wrong. Oscar was brash, abrasive, rude, and downright frightening. Despite his immense talent, he was a nightmare to play…

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. While many of my fellow Georgetowners escaped to tropical paradises in the Caribbean for spring break, dropping serious coin on beachside resorts and fruity alcoholic drinks, I flew out to the aesthetically bland Phoenix, Arizona.

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft. These players have been in front of the ESPN cameras for almost the past two years due to their professional potential and even more so for their actions off the field. It is often the case,…

The novel thing about movies

By:

For about as long as there have been movies, people have been making books into movies. The urge makes sense, as many of humanity’s greatest stories had already been written down by the time motion pictures had emerged. Even today’s bestsellers, like The Hunger Games trilogy or Gone Girl, are being adapted into films. Because…

Today, it is impossible to read an article about sports and avoid having a bunch of numbers thrown in your face.

Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of the most prominent action movie stars of all time, Sabotage follows the time-honored plot of money being stolen and people being killed.
