Michael Jordan: The Greatest Ever

34 Years ago, Michael Jordan graced the ring and world of basketball changed forever. Basketball enthusiasts went crazy, players didn’t try to compare, and retired players hailed him as the best they have ever seen. It wasn’t always like this for Michael Jordan; he achieved it through gritty hard work on his talent. As said by him, “Everybody has talent, but ability takes hard work.” He is still considered by most basketball fans to be the greatest of all time, or, the GOAT (as sports enthusiasts put it). Among his achievements, he has the highest career scoring average, five MVPs, six NBA championship titles, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and the most MVPs in finals. Maybe all of his records will be broken, but all won’t be broken by the same player. He had a combination of athleticism, skill, pace, and power that others couldn’t just match. In his first year of competition, he won the NBA rookie of the year. As soon as he arrived, Chicago Bulls started becoming a force to be reckoned with smashing teams left and right. Michael was the clock that made it all tick; a whirlwind which was moving, jumping, and dunking that ball in time after time, smashing all records while doing that. Nobody had any idea at the time that this player will go on to become a true legend of the...

I will be the first person to tell you how badly the Red Sox need a bat like J.D. Martinez’s in order to make a deep run in the playoffs. This article isn’t going to back up the opinion that this team, as built, is ready to contend with NYY/WAS/LAD/HOU. Down Year 2017 All of last season, the void that David Ortiz left in the lineup went unfilled. There was a clear home run surge in the MLB last year, and Boston was left out. Jackie Bradley Jr. had a season that earned him a spot on Yahoo’s “most...

Uncovering New England’s Offensive Weaknesses- Part 1

Introduction Every football team has at least one weakness. Honestly, it may be fair to say two weaknesses. Usually one on the offensive side of the ball, and one on defense. This article I will be dissecting any potential weaknesses on the offensive side of the ball. Hopefully you can relate to this: when the Patriots have been eliminated from the playoffs, it damn near always catches me off guard. I can’t remember a playoff game that the Patriots have lost and I wholeheartedly expected them to lose. That just doesn’t happen. Us Patriots fans have built this expectation...

Let Dave Dombrowski Do His Job

In August of 2015, the Boston Red Sox put an end to the Ben Cherington reign. The man who shoveled loads of money to Pablo Sandoval was out the door, and in came a breath of fresh air: Dave Dombrowski. Before Boston Dave Dombrowski made his name with the Florida Marlins in the late 1990s under then owner John Henry (current Red Sox owner). In 1997, the Florida Marlins won the World Series with Dave Dombrowski at the helm. After his tenure in Florida, Dave Dombrowski made his way up to the Detroit Tigers. While he never won a World...

Analyzing Each College Football Contender’s Chances for National Title Shot

Whether justified or not, at the start of every college football season each fan base has hope. Hope that a committee of thirteen people who eat, sleep, and breathe college football all believe that your team is worthy. I will admit it, I have bias, and have been lucky enough to experience that hope come to fruition on multiple occasions since the start of the College Football Playoff. I am an Ohio State Buckeyes fan living in Columbus who will be attending the university next year. In 2014, when the Buckeyes made that late season run after Braxton Miller...

Should the Red Sox keep waiting for consistency from their young players Bradley, Betts and Bogaerts? Should they hope one day they all click at once in the playoffs? Then, could the Red Sox finally make the run their payroll demands? Or is it time to stop waiting? Should the Red Sox finally do away with the old, and bring in the new?  The very thought...
