ESPN First Take

The ESPN sports debate show starring Stephen A Smith and Skip Bayless is one of my favorite shows on television. Stephen A Smith gives us his honest and objective opinion in each debate and tells it like it is. Skip Bayless is unique and gives the viewers a refreshing perspective on the game. He is objective for the most part despite what Mark Cuban thinks. I hated that Cuban came on the show and put Skip Bayless on blast. You don't do that on someone's show. I'm pretty sure Skip Bayless knows a lot more about sports than Cuban does. As a sportswriter/sports television personality Skip has follows sports for a living. He knows sports and spends all his time watching, analyzing, and on ESPN First Take, DEBATING them. Where as Cuban spends his time being a billionaire businessmen on Shark Tank and Dancing With The Stars. This is not to question both men's brilliant minds. I just think it was bad that Cuban came on the show and shredded Skip to pieces while Stephen A Smith did nothing to defend his counterpart. The reason why I bring that up is because a couple of days ago on the topic of New England Patriots player Wes Welker's diminished role on the team Stephen A Smith said that Brady didn't say enough to support Welker in a radio talk show interview. Smith mentions that Welker had a hundred receptions last year and has been Brady's bread and butter over the years and that Brady should've stood up for Welker. And I agree wholeheartedly with Smith's point. This is exactly why I watch First Take. Because it's honest and yet hypocritical lol.

lol if you think cuban "shredded" skip; you don't watch the show enough. Skip has been through way worse than that in the past (just google little wayne skip bayless and/or jalen rose destroys skip bayless) and you will see what i am talking about. But, it doesno't affect skip because his ego is bigger than most sports athletes LOL.

Jalen Rose is a basketball analyst so it's ok to have destroyed Skip in a debate. Plus he works for ESPN too so it's basically in the same family. However, I have to check out this Little Wayne clip! lol Poor Skip.

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…
