A Press Release


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Indianapolis, Indiana: After many years of debate, the NCAA has finally given into what student athletes for years have been clamoring for: more snacks.

For Division I athletes of both men and women alike, orange slices and Sunny D will be provided to the players for immediate consumption after each game, set, or match. Said snacks will be provided by the Coach's [wife, husband, significant other]. Players are not to complain if given apples instead of oranges and Capri Sun's instead of Sunny D.

Lower Divisions of Athletics [see Division II and Division III] will also receive snacks, but drinks will not be provided.

This release also contains a few rule changes and announcements for other major college sports.

As it once was in Little League and other sports played as a child, all players must participate in at least 1/3 of the game. All student athletes deserve at least this much, in fairness of sportsmanship. And sharing.

In correlation to this, scores will no longer be kept, except in Football. The NCAA believes in a world of participating and learning, not in competing in contests to test one's character, determination, and will. No one likes losers, so let's just eliminate a winning and losing side altogether. Every person and team is a winner in our book. Except in football. We make a lot of money off of college football.

Speaking of football, we have added Rule 361 to Section F. All Defensive players must count to seven Mississippi before rushing the Quarterback. This new rule will be enforced in 2014 in order to aid struggling Offensive's all over the country.

Student Athletes will now be paid a stipend. It's not enough that many of the athletes demanding money are currently at school on a full ride scholarship [free education], but we feel they should be paid a little extra. Once again, it's only fair.

Players will be allowed to skip more classes. Now, instead of taking English 101, players will simply be assigned mandatory nap time.

No matter what anyone says, Women's Beach Volleyball is a sport at many Universities. Baseball is not. Because football needs 80 scholarships a year. You do the math.

The NCAA thanks you for your time. Remember, sharing is caring.

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.


The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…

American Sports Franchises Thirsty for a Title

A billy goat. A dash of bad luck. A sprinkle of a die hard fan. Leon Durham. Add those together and you have the beginnings of the recipe for the curse that has haunted the Chicago Cubs for over 70 years.
In winning the 2016 World Series, the Cubs collected their first World Series title since 1908. Their seven-game victory effectively ended the longest title drought among the four major professional sports leagues in the United States.


Now that the talk of a goat and Bartman can be put to rest, it is now the Cleveland Indians sitting on the longest drought in the Major League baseball. The Indians will be discussed here, as will the other longest droughts in the three other major American sports leagues.
MLB-Cleveland Indians
The Indians moved through the American League this postseason with ease. First, they swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. Then, they took care of the Toronto Blue Jays in five games.
Yes, the Indians lost in the World Series after l…
