Welp. My summer vacation is officially over. This Monday I will begin my 2 week virtual internship experience for Deloitte Consulting and I will once again be a working man.

The DeSean Jackson (Lack Of) Response Makes My Blood Boil

I’m not sure if what happened with DeSean Jackson over the last 2 days is an example of a double standard or just sheer ignorance but either way it is a great encapsulation of everything that is wrong in our society today. Seemingly acting without a fear of repercussion, the NFL wide receiver posted aContinue reading “The DeSean Jackson (Lack Of) Response Makes My Blood Boil”

Chess vs. Checkers – Patriots Sign Cam Newton

It’s negotiations 101, create a no-lose situation for both sides. That’s an offer neither can refuse. And that’s exactly what happened Sunday night when Adam Schefter broke the news that the New England Patriots were signing former league MVP Cam Newton to a 1 year deal to join the 6 time Super Bowl champions whoContinue reading “Chess vs. Checkers – Patriots Sign Cam Newton”

Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 6

On one hand I feel like this summer is already over. On the other hand it’s not even the 4th of July yet. The initial quarantines and pandemic has completely messed up my mental calendar.

Great Gestures, But For A Great Hoax

NASCAR is in an interesting spot.

On Friday night signs began to show that the July 30th return date of the NBA could be in jeopardy. Probably not, but a conversation was had.

Is Conor McGregor Going To Fight Again?

After the UFC250 event on Saturday Conor McGregor highjacked the ending by announcing on twitter that he is retiring. Now I don’t think most people actually believe this to be the case as he is only 31 years old. But, as Dana White said in his post fight presser, with everything going on in theContinue reading “Is Conor McGregor Going To Fight Again?”

UFC250’s Not So Much of A Preview

UFC pay-per-view is back. To be completely honest I haven’t had any time to really research these fights and I don’t know really anyone on this card. I only know Sugar Sean O’Malley and Amanda Nunes. They’re gonna kick ass though. I couldn’t watch the fights last week either because I was traveling. I’m clearlyContinue reading “UFC250’s Not So Much of A Preview”
