What Four Years Can Do

(1) Comments | Posted August 17, 2012 | 10:25 AM

For the past two weeks, my go-to sports have consisted of swimming, diving, women's gymnastics, track and field, beach volleyball and decathlon. The first night, when I watched Ryan Lochte beat Michael Phelps in the 400m, I knew the 2012 Games were going to be something to watch. Not only...

June 21, 2012 marked the day LeBron James and the Miami Heat won the NBA Championships. It also marked the day the "LeBron will never get a ring" jokes died. Let's just say it was LeBron's expiration date on never holding a title. Now that the king has been crowned,...

I Smell Something Fishy -- And It's Probably a Patriot

(3) Comments | Posted June 18, 2012 | 7:56 AM

This happens every day in the NFL: A team or more waives one of their players and maybe that player clears waivers. After that player clears waivers, he becomes a free agent and then any team can pick them for their own team. It's nothing new. But why would a...

And Then There Was a Win

During the last off-season of the NFL -- when the players, coaches, owners and fans went through a lockout that lasted 132 days (but which felt longer to me) -- I thought no other off-season would be able to top it. But with terrible deaths, the New Orleans Saints bounty...

How Tough Are You?

(0) Comments | Posted May 4, 2012 | 8:58 AM

Have you ever heard of the saying, "It doesn't matter the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog"? Being small, I will definitely agree that size within matters more than the size on the outside. But honestly, when it comes down...

Tim Tebow: Build a Door if Opportunity is not Knocking

(4) Comments | Posted March 28, 2012 | 9:05 AM

Luck to Colts, Peyton to Broncos, Tebow to Jets, Tebow not to Jets, Tebow to Jets then Drew to Colts to backup Andrew Luck. I hoped every single day that Peyton Manning would not join the Jets because I want Mark Sanchez as the starter. But all that hoping made...

Don't Call It a Comeback

(0) Comments | Posted March 9, 2012 | 8:26 AM

I heard that a great quarterback should have many different traits. The top three are toughness, intelligence, and a heart. I also heard great quotes from different quarterbacks about their success. Going back in time, when Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, suffered his shoulder injury,

Improvement Starts With "I"

One of my favorite artists, Vincent van Gogh, once said: "I dream of painting and then I paint my dream." He didn't just sit around waiting for his dreams to come true. Instead, he went out and made sure that his dream did come true. Van Gogh accomplished his dreams...

Recently I have been applying for college. Application after application, uploading my essay, selecting a major; but one college asked if I could use one of their questions as my essay topic. I'm thinking, "Great! More work I have to do." But after reading the question, it made me think....

Keep Your Teams Close and Tom Brady Closer

Football season is almost finished. Super Bowl 46 is a couple months away but the playoffs are just around the corner. It's that time where we separate the losers from the winners. For me, it's that time I have to look at different possible ways of having the Jets make...

Don't Forget About Those New York Jets

(2) Comments | Posted November 21, 2011 | 8:36 AM

"J-E-T-S, Jets! Jets!! Jets!!!" This is what every person yells who bleeds green and white on a football day or night because they know the New York Jets are in their flight mode, or as Santonio Holmes likes to say, 'Tone Time,' ready to win this game so they're a...

No Money in NCAA Football?

(0) Comments | Posted November 7, 2011 | 8:24 AM

The first college football game that took place was November 6, 1869, Rutgers University against College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton University). That day marked the day of future NFL stars being produced, great rivals between different colleges and the football stars themselves, not being praised for their...

Michael Vick had proven last season that he is back to his fullest potential by leading the Philadelphia Eagles into the NFC championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

Vick had won the award "NFL Comeback Player of the Year" in 2010 because in 2006 Vick was found
