A common discussion in American Society today is the legalization of marijuana. With American football being the most popular sport in society, it is only right that the people (the NFL) keep up with the times.
As we are seeing technological and gameplay of the sport progress through the years, marijuana usage is a topic that needs more strength and conditioning.
When we think Performance Enhancing Drugs usually the first thing to come to mind is steroid usage. Then perhaps the use of Human Growth Hormones (HGH). Both of which are known to increase muscle mass rapidly, not only affecting the human body physically but psychologically also.
THC is starting to be known more for its healing effects and relaxing abilities, allowing a human to partake in a natural substance.
With it being legalized in some states for recreational use, why not legalize it in the NFL while monitoring the usage?
Obviously, one can not be a complete stoner or pothead to perform...
This should be a letter to Dez Bryant...But, of course, we'll stall him out...preferring to talk to the "day one" superfan. Like myself, and other Raiders fans in the wake of our team leaving one of the great sports areas of the world, to uplift a bustling downtown Las Vegas.
The bandwagon fan is everywhere. No, seriously, there's a new fan catching on to the hype of your team sitting right next to you....and you know it.
Of course....easy bait. You saved up all season to hit up a game, but stubhub jacked up the prices, giving the finger to your opportunity; as a couple hundred bucks flush down the drain, to sit up in the nose bleeds...Heartbreaking feeling.
What's a "bandwagon" fan?
1. That person who never spoke of the sport, let alone team. then shows up out of nowhere with a jersey...Like everyone, who wants to be down.
2. Individuals who like the sport, but never had a favorite team.
3. Expats learning the sport throughout their academic, or professiona...
Some engineers sat in a garage in the San Francisco Bay area and said to each other, "I want to change the world." Yes, thats the corniest start to this piece; yet we all come to know such quote birthed Google, Facebook, Twitter and all of social media we have today.
These "engineers" have succeeded, which is bittersweet. They have changed the world; In that people can magnify everything we are dealing with as a nation to the front of our minds, (actually right in our faces, depending on where you live) and have a "search-engine opinion." Fast forward to a day later, or, now....Well, there's a "bodega" (in the form of a book shelf vending machine) coming to a Boyle heights luxury apartment near you.
Thats neither here, nor there. Kap is still unsigned, in a day and moment, where spots casters are backed into a corner to speak on politics, to be called for termination by a house of white people. But can we watch a game with decent offensive line play?
Seriously....Can we ask around on this?? A couple seasons in with the Redskins, we find ourselves to marvel whats to come for Adrian Peterson.
Comfy to say he's "all done"?
As predicted, most would agree AP has seemingly lived up to the "standards" of one who "could be at the end," since his 2,000 yard season; a completely inaccurate phenomena. Like that "story" of a group of people who told a man named "Casper," "you're now a ghost, but always hella cool"!....No?
But....(Announcement: that last sentence is now meaningless)
Every year the Super Bowl Championship team visits the president at the White House.
However, in this socio-political climate, what's meant to be a celebratory visit has become full of controversy! In planning stages!
Why are we even arguing and discussing this issue? Because race is involved. It seems we have grown bored and fall right into the cynicism of the media.
Tom Brady chose to not visit the White House when President Obama was in office, no one batted an eye. Other black players from the Patriots opted out of visiting the white house on numerous occasions.
This year, we have two players from the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots publicly opt out of the White House visit. Oh, and a third player, a white player has opted out. Crickets....
The problem is simple African American players are not allowed to speak out on their decision to sit out of the White House visit due to President Trump being in office, until hell hath frozen over....
