Trash Talk

ESPN is blowing up tweets made by a couple of college football players about their crosstown rival quarterback. These kids should get a pass, even though these tweets were personal, they are entitled to their opinions especially when it's just trash talk. Coaches do not need to ban players from social media because banning that means taking away an outlet of expression and because trash talking will happen no matter if it's on Twitter or on the field.

The cynical person in me questions the ulterior motive of ESPN when it comes to their questionable coverage of athletes who trash talk on social media. ESPN is the foremost authority in sports media and when they portray athletes who commit the slightest faux pas on Twitter in a bad light they influence the entire sports community to think the same way. What happens next is that our favorite athletes tweet less because their coaches think Twitter's a major distraction and we use less of Twitter and watch more ESPN or read more tweets by ESPN analysts.

With that said I'm not the biggest fan of Twitter but I can understand how trash talking can be fun. Athletes should be able to express themselves as long as their conduct on the field is sportsmanlike. ESPN needs to back off attacking these kids. And no they do not deserve one game suspensions over this, Stephen A Smith!

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 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…
