Before 2020, sports fans couldn’t have imagined being stuck at home for so long, waiting on long season delays and rooting for their team in their living rooms instead of in the stands. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and these sports teams have found creative – and hilarious! – ways to fill their arenas with support.

Develop an Awesome Personality and Captivate the World

It is said that, ‘First impression is the last impression’, and the main key to impress anyone at very first appearance is your great personality.

Britney Spears is the Elvis Presley of Our Age

britney-spears-bikini

Saturday brought Britney Spears using social media to give the world an update on her personal gym, one that she herself had previously burnt down. It was an accident, she claims, and perhaps that’s true, but there’s still a lot of mystery and controversy surrounding that incident from a few months ago.

There’s a lot to unpack around that, but this is neither the time or space. My first thought in hearing about it was ‘oh like when Elvis Presley used to shoot his own television.’ You see, many years ago I was vocal about how Britney Spears was this generation’s Elvis Presley, and this take was vastly unpopular.

Photos, Videos of Notre Dame Football at Juneteenth Rally #StaNDTogether

This is not the first time that the Notre Dame community and the Notre Dame football team fought against the ugly forces of hate and intolerance that exist in our society. The Fighting Irish nickname comes from a Saturday in 1924 which saw the ND student body beat down the Ku Klux Klan and drive them out of South Bend.

The KKK had chosen South Bend as their rally location due to the city’s high percentage of Catholics and the large Catholic University being located there. When the students fought back against the hate group, legend has it that ND starting quarterback Harry Stuhldreher, one of the acclaimed Four Horsemen, was instrumental in the incident. [Read more…]

NASCAR Bans the Confederate Flag, Enjoy the Comments Section

sec-football-confederate-flag

155 years after the Confederate States of America lost the Civil War, we’re still dealing trying to get rid of their propaganda. It’s utterly unbelievable- a treasonous and later crushed rebellion, built on the tenet of white supremacy, never recognized as a real country by anyone in the entire world, still somehow has a brand presence today.

Confederate monuments are coming down at a rapid pace everywhere, the Confederate flag is likely on its way out as well. Now NASCAR, yes, NASCAR is distancing itself from it. This is huge, as the main group of people that think favorably of that flag comprise the sport’s core audience.

Jurgen Klopp Really Proud of His Team Supporting Black Lives Matter

Pistons Coach Dwane Casey Sees Little Progress Made on Racism

America’s original sin is slavery, and long after the Emancipation Proclamation, the great divide in this country continues to manifest itself in a racist driven form. Segregation, Jim Crow, Voter Discrimination, Birtherism, the MAGA movement and back once again at the forefront- bigoted police brutality.

Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey released a long, poignant and powerful statement today. He fears for his eight-year-old son, and the world he’ll grow up in. In the statement, Casey harkened back to when he was eight year old himself, living in the Jim Crow era segregated south. The Pistons released this statement today, while many of our nation’s cities are recovering from riots last night, and bracing for more rioting to come tonight.

Have Energy for Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari Divorce Discourse? Your Life’s Not Bad!

jay-cutler-kristin-cavallari-chicago-bears-season-preview

It was just two tweeks ago today that Kristin Cavallari, “reality star,” announced that she and her husband, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, are getting divorced. This past week, Cavallari spoke out publicly, calling Cutler “lazy” and “unmotivated.”

It was a very calculated move, as K-Cav seized upon and exploited the public perception of Cutler that of a man who is rather emotionally distant and insouciant. Of course, this depiction of him is fairly consistent with the reputation that Cutler earned during his professional playing career, especially so while he was with the Chicago Bears.

Arsenal FC, L.A. Rams Coaches Share Notes on Training During Pandemic

Arsenal FC and the Los Angeles Rams have the same corporate parents, as both are owned by the Kroenke Sports Enterprises, headed by American billionaire Stan Kroenke. So it only makes sense that the two sporting franchise powerhouses would share and compare notes on how to get through this coronavirus pandemic.

Obviously, today we only have more questions than answers, and even when we have some answers, more questions arise as to how sports will adjust to the so-called “new normal.” The English Premier League and American National Football League are arguably the two biggest and most popular sports leagues on the planet, and both face unique challenges when it comes to resuming action in 2020.

Is Sports Betting Losing the Race to Gambling Online?

For a long time, Nevada was the single US state where conventional sports betting was permissible. Since the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of New Jersey’s battle to introduce sports betting in 2018, however, the industry has been in the ascendancy. The number of states offering legalized sports betting now stands at 21, with more expected to join the fold. 

The positive effects on the industry are already being felt, and they’re expected to skyrocket in the coming years. According to Gambling Compliance, the market value will reach a staggering $8.1 billion in revenues by 2024. With some of the biggest sports leagues on the planet calling the United States home, it’s not exactly a surprising prediction. [Read more…]
