HBO Hard Knocks

Hard Knocks is an HBO mini series that follows an NFL team during training camp. You get to see what really goes on inside the locker room, the weight room, the film room, on the practice field, and in the coach's office. This year Hard Knocks focuses in on the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins are a great and storied football team. When you think of the Dolphins you think of Dan Marino, Don Shula, and the undefeated season. And who am I kidding the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders! If you live outside of Miami, you probably know from ESPN who their Starting Quarterback is (it's first round draft pick Ryan Tannehill) but you probably don't know where they play (it's Sun Life Stadium). The Dolphins play in a state that worships football and in a division that's probably one of the toughest.

I've watched one and a half episodes of Hard Knocks and what I've gathered from it is that Head Coach Joe Philbin is a no nonsense coach that the team will definitely grow to respect and win for. With Offensive Coordinator Mike Sherman at the helm, the players and especially the rookies will take the game seriously and possibly overachieve. They also have a very supportive wide receivers coach that is a very good motivator. The leadership of the Miami Dolphins is there and the foundation is set and I can only hope that a team like the current Dolphins win the games they're supposed to with the young group of guys that they have.

Luckily for the Dolphins, Chad Johnson was cut on camera. I'm not hating on Johnson, I like his personality and I think he's been one of the best wide receivers in all of football, but he didn't seem focused and was just too much of a distraction especially with the amount of attention that he was seeking. He forgot that football is an evolving sport filled with mega talent guys ready to take his spot. I feel bad for the guy but that's football in a nutshell. It doesn't care how you were pro bowler or if you're a first round draft pick. You're only good as your last game. HBO Hard Knocks captures those weak and difficult moments that goes on in training camp. To those that think preseason doesn't matter I suggest you watch Hard Knocks!

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…
