Opinion & Analysis

  • Sports Day-ly: The NBA Superhero Comparison: Part II

    Welcome into round two of the Superhero and NBA team comparison. Essentially a couple hundred words of me completely nerding out with my slightly above average knowledge of superheroes and my elite level of basketball knowledge. Maybe elite is not the right word to describe my basketball knowledge, that seems arrogant. We'll call it semi-elite in an effort to express my humility.

  • Sports Day-ly: The NBA Superhero Comparison

     The NBA season is officially underway and I am incredibly excited. I love basketball in fact recently it has become my favorite sport.
      

    One thing I also have recently re-fell in love with is superheroes. For whatever reason when I was 20 I really started to get back into superheroes. Even now at 22-years old I often walk about with a Batman backpack that is originally meant for a 10-year old.
      

  • Sports Day-ly: D.C.'s Curse

    By: Denton Day

    A few years ago I was not the kind of guy to believe in any sort of sports curse. The idea was silly to me.

    Yes I recognized that the Cubs had not won a World Series in a century and that Cleveland had not won a championship in over 50 years.

    I still did not believe. Funny how your opinion can so easily change once something has a direct impact on you.

  • Extra Points: Two weeks notice

    As quickly as I arrived, I am leaving.

    In two weeks, I’ll be packing up my two-suitcases worth of belongs and moving to Boise, Idaho.

    Boise!? Yes. Boise. The city with that college that has that infamous blue football turf. I am moving there to support my boyfriend as he takes on his new job at Boise State.

    Now I will take the time to be as corny and cliche as possible:

  • Extra Points: I survived my Airbnb stay

    What comes to your mind when you hear Airbnb?

    For me it’s: Potential death. Potential kidnapping. Horror stories used as plots in Criminal Minds episodes. PR nightmare. Allegedly doesn’t rent to minorities.

    Well, this past weekend I put my life at risk (yes, I’m dramatic) and stayed in my first Airbnb room. And although I am alive, it definitely was a unique experience to say the least.

  • Extra Points: 'Schooled' Review

    Small town life has rendered me a Netflix addict. And within my Netflix addiction, has developed a documentaries obsession.

    Since I’m a sports editor, my review will be about a sports documentary (non-sports documentary recommendation: The Imposter.) This past weekend, I struggled (you’ll see why) through Schooled: The Price of College Sports which is a documentary about why student-athletes should receive a salary.

    If I could rename this documentary I would call it: Schooled: When football players still find more to complain about.

  • Extra Points: Dear recent graduates...

    Two weekends ago I travelled back to civilization, whoops, I meant Chicago, for my master’s graduation.

    I’m only 24, but walking across the stage to receive my second degree made me feel old and wise (I am neither) and got me thinking about what I should’ve done to maximize my college experiences.

  • Extra Points: "Trophy Kids" review

      

  • Extra Points: NCAA Abroad?

    I came across an article the other day in the New York Times that caught my eye. 

  • Extra Points: Superbowl

        Okay, here we go. These are my thoughts on the Super Bowl, the halftime show, overtime, the NFL rules and everything in between.
        Personally, I believe they shouldn’t have just called that final touchdown a touchdown without reviewing it. Everything was way too close. I saw a photo online they showed the running back’s knee was down, before he fell into the endzone.
