Sweet crack of the bat, baseball’s back! Smell the fresh cut grass! The MLB kicks off its grueling 162 game season Sunday with three thrilling matchups: Yankees-Rays, Diamondbacks-Giants, and the 100000000th opening day version of Cubs-Cardinals. Seriously, who picks these games? Anyways, this is one of the most anticipated seasons ever, with the Cubs and Indians no longer perennial losers, the Astros looking ready to roll, and perennial powers like the Yankees and Red Sox looking ready to make the AL East Great Again.
AMERICAN LEAGUE EAST:
This may be the strongest division in baseball, with three teams capable of winning the pennant and another capable of at least a wild card spot. The Papi-less Red Sox made the move of the offseason pulling the trigger on the Chris Sale deal, and while the Blue Jays lost Edwin to free agency, they still have plenty of pop in their bats. Down in Baltimore, the O’s should crush enough homers to stay competitive, and the Baby Bombers should give the Yankees a push towards contention. Sorry Rays. Maybe some other time.
AMERICAN LEAGUE CENTRAL:
The defending AL Pennant holders should have no problems handling this division again, provided their star pitching stays healthy. Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar, Miller, Allen are all integral; where they go, the Indians go this season. The White Sox look to be primed for the future, acquiring Moncada and Kopech to begin what seems like a painful rebuild. The Tigers should compete for a Wild Card as long as Verlander pitches like he did last year, while the Royals look real far off from two years ago, especially with Wade Davis onto greener pastures. Who knows with the Twins; they just kinda suck.
AMERICAN LEAGUE WEST:
Ever since its inception, rap and sports have gone hand in hand. Songs like “Basketball” by Kurtis Blow and the more recent “Sports” by Lil Dicky have solidified this point even more. This lead to me start thinking – What if rappers were professional athletes? To make me think a little bit more (everybody likes a challenge, right?) I asked my Twitter followers to give me their suggestions for rappers to write about.
First off, DJRyanBeats is a junior in high school and an amateur DJ. I paid him in food to DJ a party I had over the summer and he honestly did a great job. Even though he just plugged his phone into an aux cord, he did have lasers and shit and everyone was inebriated, so that made up for it. Secondly, I’m not a rapper, I have a mixtape I made with my friends that I keep in my car and I used to rap battle middle schoolers when I was a senior. Pathetic, I know. So anyways, the tweet says I’ll write about four rappers, and the results could have been a little better, but you play the hand you’re dealt, right?

In the never-ending quest to determine who the best team is in each league we will start with the NFL. It feels like yesterday that Tom Brady and the Patriots came back from 25 points down in Super Bowl LI giving Brady and the Patriots their fifth title. However, there is no rest in the NFL as the league’s scouting combine begins next week at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Starting with no shock, the Patriots are number one, but have a lot of question marks going into the offseason. Continue reading “2017 NFL Power Rankings: Pre-Combine”
I’m no fashion god. I’ve been publicly humiliated on Twitter for posting a photo of myself with the caption “On my Ye” in what I thought was a stylish outfit, and my roommate Tim has the nerve to tell me my haircut sucks (his is actually a lot worse). That being said, I might not be the best person to ridicule some teams fashion senses, but my list of the worst jerseys I can think of was an easy one to come up with. Sure, some of these are alternate jerseys and alternate jerseys are typically the questionable ones, but regardless, these five made my list because they made me stop and think “Who the fuck thought this would be ok?” And I know there’s a lot worse jerseys out there, but I don’t spend my time researching things like this, these are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

A logo is what defines a team. From the classic Raiders’ silver and black, eye-patch wearing pirate to the Chicago Blackhawks’ Chief Blackhawk head on their fantastic red jerseys, there are certain logos around the sporting world that have stood the test of time. This list is not for those logos. Yesterday we did the greatest retro logos, these are not these logos. Due to rebranding and the endless quest for people to make more money off of merchandise sales and whatever else, logos change, and in this case, with terrible results. To make this list I simply took logos from the four major American sports just to make it easier, but other than that there are no other rules. They can come from a team that is in their current city, a logo no longer used because the team moved, or even logos for teams that no longer exist anymore. As long the team plays or played in the NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL and the team no longer uses the logo as their primary one they are fair game. If you get to number seven on this list I commend you because they logos could possibly hurt your eyes. Let’s get into it. Continue reading “Top 10 Worst Retro Sports Logos”
WARNING: YOU MAY BE TRIGGERED BY MY USE OF LOGIC AND FACT.
I am here to talk about what evryone seems afraid to speak of. Thats rite, while everyone is worried about the Ruskys and MY President I have been doing my fare share of research about a topic near and dear to everyones harts. Milk is not only bad for you but is likely created by satanists to posion our children. Here me out.
Who doesnt love a great big glass of milk with some chocolate chip cookies? I know for a fact before im even in the door at nanas house shes got a dozen cookies and a gallin of milk ready to roll. But lately i have become more WOKE to the subject and have realized the negative nutritional benefits of drinking milk and greet her with a big fat NO THANK YOU. In fact, I believe it has ben created in order 2 weaken our children and take them away from jesuse.
According to this article i found milk became popular around the 1920s. I know what else wasnt so popular around that time, Racism. Altho I cannot say for sure these two are correlated, as milk has become more popular not only have there been several genocides there has also been lately a persecution of white christian men. God fearing men have been greatly affected lately from this rise in popularity another species milk. Just look at this shirt that is for sale. Just disgusting. If my gf wore this i would probably drive into a small pond. As u can see we have lost our path toward God as a soceity since we have made milk a large part of our diet.
Even our own children are not safe from this pandemic. Thanks to Michel Obama and her BS rules, our poorest children must purchase milk in order to be under the free and reduced lunch program. The saying goes start em young and i forget the rest but u catch my drift. Liberals and several other members of our government have teamed together to force our children away frm God and towards Satan even possibly. This weakens them spiritually, which then leads to self esteem issues and even possibly what pundits call a “milk moustache”. I do NOT need my 5 year old daughter coming home crying because she thought she had a moustache and was not feeling pretty. Shame on the Democrats and others.
After reading this i hope u guys agree milk should NOT be drank by anyone but especially our children who are still growing spiritually and fisically. Pls join me in calling on our nations savior DONALD J TRUMP to repeal the Obamas disastrous mandate on milk before it is too late.
