With that being said, there is hope for all three of my favorite teams going forward.
In nearly every job in the United States, there are harsh punishments for breaking the law, especially when it comes to violence. If you work as an accountant, or a store clerk, or a doctor or a teacher, you would likely get fired if you did something as awful as physically abuse a loved one, or shoot a gun in a public place or commit murder. However, if you are a professional athlete, you would likely keep your job.
Baseball has always been a sport based in years and years of tradition. As the oldest major professional sport in North America, and the second-oldest sport only to lacrosse, there is so much history behind every facet of the game. It is understandable for a sport that started in the mid-1800s to be entrenched in certain values and customs.
The greatest time in the sports universe has finally returned: the NBA playoffs. No longer do we have to suffer through the awful NFL offseason fodder about the broken NFL draft and its skewed morals that permeate the sports world. No more do we have to pretend that we care about the NHL playoffs. The pinnacle of the sports world is back.
With another year of March Madness gone, another year of hope for that perfect bracket has come and gone. In hindsight, there was probably less chance for a perfect bracket this year than any other, with University of Maryland, Baltimore County becoming the first No. 16 seed to ever beat a No. 1 seed and Loyola University Chicago becoming just the fourth ever No. 11 seed to make it to the Final Four.
The most important day in sports has come and gone. Opening Day, the de facto national holiday for millions of Americans, has once again allowed the MLB to explode back onto the sports scene, inserting itself into the daily news cycle once more. With the emergence of the opening weekend, we were afforded our first look at the predicted contenders and stars of 2018.
With the basketball world no longer focused on March Madness, it’s time to center our attention back to the professionals. As the NBA regular season nears its end, its time to look back on many of the exciting storylines and who is in the running for the NBA’s highest awards.
As the Andy Williams song goes, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.” Contrary to popular belief, when that song was written in 1963, they were talking about the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
On Nov. 5, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love suffered an unusual illness during a game against the Atlanta Hawks. During a timeout, Love rushed to the locker room seemingly out of nowhere and did not return.
In recent months, discussions about video technology have come to the forefront in the soccer community. In 2016, we saw the first soccer competition use video assistant referee (VAR). VAR is made up of a team of three people, including at least one current or retired referee, that watches replays of important plays and decisions.
Within the past couple of weeks, another scandal that the NCAA is all too familiar with reared its head again. A recent FBI investigation into the NCAA and its basketball coaches produced alleged evidence of Arizona University Wildcats coach Sean Miller discussing payment for star freshman forward DeAndre Ayton to land at the school.
Six years of progress came to a devastating end when the U.S. Men’s National Team lost 2-1 against Trinidad and Tobago in the final qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup. The team only needed a draw, but their loss, coupled with Panama and Honduras winning their final games, meant that the U.S. will not be going to the World Cup in 2018.
The NBA, as one of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States, has come to be of cultural importance to this nation. The League has been experiencing a rise in popularity due to its overabundance of talented players, who often transcend the boundaries of the court.
If you have been following the Winter Olympics closely, you might have noticed the strange name that Russian athletes are being called by announcers and broadcasters.

With All-Star Weekend in the rearview mirror, it is time to look ahead to the latter portion of the NBA season, especially as the playoff positioning and the award races begin to come into focus.
