That’s right folks!! Football Season is just around the corner. One of the most satisfying parts of the 4th of July, is knowing that when you flip your calendar to the next page… there are actual NFL games scheduled for at least the next 21 weeks ( if you count the preseason) This is a beautiful thing.
What is it about this sport? Is it the anticipation of wondering how the team will approach the next down? Will the refs actually call the game as everyone else saw it? What rules are gonna make it more soft?
With quarterbacks not being held responsible for the actions of their team. Knowing the coaches playbooks so well, we can almost call better plays from our couch. As far as the refs go, i guess having a centralized replay division can be helpful. Only if, of course they have the authority to call down to the field if something was missed. The rule changes are a little playground like. I mean, the first three rules listed are the reason most of us watch the sport. Leaping: first they called it if you landed on or touched someone else. Fine. Now, you want to call unsportsmanlike conduct, REALLY!!!? Do you have any idea, how hard these men have trained?
All I have to wonder is, what will NFL stand for this season? National Football League or the No Fun League as once stated. Either way I along with many will be ready and eager for the first snap of preseason. Cheering on our favorites and keeping a watchful eye on the standings. Focusing more on the upcoming Playoffs than Thanksgiving dinner, because that is what football does to true fans. We are there like the Dawg Pound in Cleveland last season ( 1-15). On Christmas Day with not a win on their side they showed up and supported the home team, and was rewarded with a win. That’s the beauty of this sport,like any other it brings people together for a common cause. Let’s Go Team!!! Preseason kicks off Thursday August 10,2017 and the official begins Thursday Septmber 7,2017 @ 8:30 pm.
That’s right… Dave Chappelle is back. He came back strong in a three part stand-up on Netflix. Now he is joining other big names such as Childish Gambino, The Roots, and others at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, which he has taken over for the month of August. Dave Chappelle is best known for his controversial yet hilarious skits on The Chappelle Show. His show on Netflix touches on many of the rumors that surfaced regarding his long break from the business, including issues about health and drugs. I am personally glad that Dave Chappelle is back. If you can’t make it to New York to see it this August, be sure to tune into Netflix to check out Dave Chappelle and hear about all 4 times he met O.J.
YES…it is really happening. Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and MMA fighter Conner McGregor are scheduled to battle it out August 26,2017 in Las Vegas. What I love about this is very simple… these two are some of the best taunters that I have seen lately. Take a look at @McGregor’s post as he slyly makes reference to Mayweather’s age.
Man, much respect to Floyd Senior still getting a few rounds in at the gym. I hope I can still train at that age. Respect. pic.twitter.com/Q2jv4Lffgd
Upon looking for any trash talk from Floyd I was only able to come across the name of his new club (warning explicit lyrics) Girl Collection. Obviously he has his hands in many business ventures, but wouldn’t the real possibility of being beaten make you focus a little? Well I hope he gets more training in because my bet is on #McGREGOR.
Chance the Rapper
What is it about Chance the Rapper? This young man has accomplished so much at his young age. He is the only artist in history to not only be nominated, but win a Grammy as an unsigned artist. He has done huge amounts of charity work including helping to intervene in the lives of Chicago’s young men of color. He has also pledged to donate $1 million to Chicago’s Public School System, which has led to him being honored by BET with the Humanitarian Award. Although it’s not uncommon to see interpreters on stages now a days. Chance decided to stay within his community and team up with a black owned ASL company to sign for him while on tour. Chance the Rapper in my opinion is a role model. #itallstartswithyou #rolemodel #humanitarian
