Cheer and Tears: A Sports Docuseries for All Audiences

I stumbled upon Netflix’s Cheer purely by accident while in search of mindless entertainment. I did not expect to end up crying in my bed because I was so proud of what the Navarro College cheer team accomplished. Cheer is perhaps the most exciting sports docuseries I have ever watched. It is filled with mind-boggling...

Windows can be an opening to the outdoors. They can provide glimpses into enclosed, secret rooms or become gateways to unreachable places. But the square or rectangular shape of windows can also be limiting, restricting our view to a simple geometric scene and shaping our eyes to see a specific perspective. With the constant chaos…

Have you ever heard of Swansea? I promise, I didn’t pose that question just so I could patronize you. A few weeks ago, I didn’t know much of anything about the city of Swansea. In all honesty, if someone would’ve asked me to point at Swansea on a map of Britain, I surely would have…

DC becomes a ghost town on the weekends, where one can walk for blocks and blocks in its concrete jungle and only pass a few families of confused tourists looking for the Mall and pregnant yuppie couples on their way to brunch. But amongst the lonely buildings waiting for their high-powered employees to flood in…

In one of surprises of the offseason, the Southeast division has become one of the league’s least predictable, with some serious potential to produce surprises come playoff time.

The International Basketball Association renamed their quadrennial event from the “2014 FIBA World Championship” to the “2014 FIBA World Cup,” highlighting a new, exciting era for basketball on the international stage.

The third episode of Season Eight of Doctor Who, The Robots of Sherwood, pits one English legend against another. It’s a lighthearted romp penned by longtime Who and Sherlock scribe Mark Gatiss, who relishes the opportunity for another Doctor-meets-historical-figure episode. His script is light on plot and logic, but heavy on humor. And it’s just…

When late December rolled around in 2013, the Texas Rangers completed a seven-year, 130 million dollar deal with Shin-Soo Choo that had some commentators calling for high expectations from the squad.

The following contains spoilers for season three of Veep. Hyperlinked material may contain objectionable language. While I sincerely meant my reflections last week on how Netflix’s House of Cards has aligned with a deep public cynicism toward American politics, they were, nevertheless, a bit myopic in scope. Call it a kind of televised Americentrism, or…

On Saturday morning, about 800 freshmen and transfer students gathered in Red Square to participate in service projects in Ward 7. My group of fifty-three traveled by bus across the Anacostia River to our site, Fort Mahan. We stepped out of the air-conditioned bus and walked through the hot, humid air to a hill covered…
