Colin Kaepernick Will Stand During The Anthem, But Is Still Being Criticized

People are suspicious about the move Colin Kaepernick decided to pull next season. The quarterback is putting an end his national anthem protest, as he heads into free agency (the search for a new employer). Skeptics are criticizing the 29-year-old’s timing. Colin Kaepernick a hypocrite! Ends protest now that he needs job https://t.co/YCF4PzvW3D –@ebenezersamuel pic.twitter.com/MEL2thfY6u — NY Daily News Sports (@NYDNSports) March 3, 2017 People are drawing the conclusion Kaepernick gave up on his protest against the “oppression of black people” as soon as he needed a job, therefore he’s not as committed as…

5 Ways To Enjoy March Madness For Those Who Know Nothing About College Basketball

The time is almost upon us, when all of our family, friends and coworkers suddenly become interested in a bunch of 18 to 22-year-old men dribbling a ball around and shooting it into a hoop. When some crazy old guy who everyone is oddly obsessed with, despite his nonsensical yelling and insistence on dramatics, becomes a figure on televisions everywhere. When 99 percent of America will inevitably experience agonizing defeat in a single weekend because a 15-seed beats a 2-seed that was supposed to go to the Final Four. I’m talking about…

Why NFL Players Could Be The Answer To The Weed Legalization Debate

Think about the biggest “potheads” you met in college. What did they always tell people who were afraid of weed? I’ll take a guess: “Weed is actually far less dangerous than other drugs, even the legal ones.” And that makes sense. Weed is still criminalized in most states, but you’re as free as a bird to buy alcohol and cigarettes… even when they’ve actually been linked to deaths. So, the potheads have a point… even if they sometimes make said point while obnoxiously blowing smoke in your face. Now, that fact…

8 Underdog Moments That Will Remind Why You Love March Madness

The official purpose of the NCAA Basketball tournament is to determine a national champion, sure, but we all know what fans love most about March Madness: upsets. Nothing is more endearing in sports than the Cinderella story, and no competition delivers these underdogs like the men’s basketball tourney. So while we’ve had some really impressive winners over the years (Who could forget last year’s buzzer-beating champions?), the David v. Goliath moments are what really stick out as memorable. Here are 10 of those moments: NC State’s Last-Second Dunk Villanova may have shocked everyone…

Why Everyone Should Live Life The Way Russell Westbrook Plays On The Court

When Russell Westbrook had another amazing game on Thursday night, most people probably weren’t thinking what I was thinking. Most people were probably thinking about how he deserves to be MVP: “Another triple-double? He definitely should get that trophy!” Twitter That’s cool and all (and he’s definitely my MVP pick), but when I noticed his stat line, I had another thought: Damn, this dude is living life right. For awhile now I’ve been a firm, honest-to-goodness believer in the idea that people should aspire to live their lives the way Russell…

Martellus Bennett Is Too Busy Making Books For Black Girls To See Trump In DC

After the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, Bennett said he would not be joining his teammates to visit the president at the White House, as all champions in the major four sports leagues do after winning a title.

Runner Loses Race After Pole Vault Band Accidentally Wraps Around His Ankles

You would assume the funniest part about this video is how a pole vault band somehow flew off of the nearby standards holding it up and found itself wrapped around a runner’s legs. And it is funny, because he was in the lead, and he started tripping like someone caught in an old school “Scooby Doo” trap. But the Irish announcer equating the band to a web shot from Spider-Man is the real star here. At the Irish University Indoor Championship on Friday, Aengus Meldon was well on his way…
