On November second, Sia released Everyday Is Christmas (Deluxe). The album is a re-released version of her original Everyday Is Christmas LP, which came out almost exactly year ago, with four new additional songs.

For many, Major League Baseball’s Opening Day holds its significance for a variety of reasons. For devout baseball fans, it marks the end of a five month long hibernation for their favorite sport, which will now proceed unceasingly for the next five months (six if your team’s lucky).

With Final Four NCAA Tournament games right around the corner and the madness tangible in nearly every conversation here on campus, it brightened my day to finally see some Major League Baseball news to pop up in the headlines.

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.

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.

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft.

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…
