College Sports Television Market

A foodie in New York City can walk into any variety of restaurant of his or her choosing. However, the same foodie who also happens to be a football fan in New York City cannot even watch his or her favorite college football team. With sports as popular as it is, why are options to watch non local teams so limited? It's certainly NOT the technology and it's certainly not the low demand.

Fans crave this stuff and there is a market demand for this so why all the local blackout restrictions? Why are corporations and businessmen dictating what teams we are are able to watch and teams were not able to watch. I can understand how they can impose on us what professional teams were able to watch in our local markets but college teams? The last time I checked NCAA athletes don't earn a salary.

Can it really be all about the money given the number of sports packages that televise a number of out of market games? Is it not financially viable for an sports media executive to put a package together for college sports the same way the professional leagues already have done? When a college game is being aired why not let everyone in the nation, either through a paid or free subscription, have access to it!

Are college game day packages the best that they can come up with? European soccer really needs to follow this business model as well and make their games available on a network or online. But I digress, I'm just a Longhorns fan who just wants to be able to follow his favorite college football team all season long.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
