Blown Calls

If you watched the Braves/Cards 1 game playoff I have a question for you. Since when did the infield become the outfield? The umpires royally screwed the Braves and the league needed to step in to correct that blown infield fly rule that was called when the ball landed in the OUTFIELD. That was the second time in a month where a league could've corrected a crucial blown call. The first of course was the Hail Mary Touchdown by Seahawks against Green Bay in the Monday night game. As a fan I feel there needs to be a Supreme Court for the outcome of games. It's sports and it's not life or death to overturn a certain blown call. I thought Major League Baseball was different and had common sense especially when you consider that they took away the batting title away from Melky Cabrera by making a small change to the rules for one season. Then the Braves got charged with an out when the infield fly rule came into effect in the outfield. The referees and umpires do their jobs the best they can but the league needs to step in and reverse some blown calls every now and then. If they don't they'll be bad consequences such as the horse manure chants from the Baltimore Ravens crowd in the Monday night game a few weeks ago. And even worse what happened on Friday night at Turner Field when the fans started to throw cups of beer onto the field that caused a twenty minute delay. The ugly behavior from the Braves fans showed how disgusting the call was. It's starting to resemble the WWE out there in professional sports.

Technically speaking, the actual wording of the infield fly rule doesn't specify the ball has to be in the infield. It only states that it has to be an infielder making the play through ordinary effort. I didn't see the play, and I don't care enough to look for it, I'm just saying according to the wording, the "where" doesn't matter; just the "who" and the "how."

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…
