Good Afternoon!

๐Ÿ€-With 10 players now in health and safety protocols because of a COVID-19 outbreak, the Chicago Bulls next two games are postponed; Tuesday, December 14 against Detroit, and Thursday, December 16 against Toronto.

๐Ÿˆ-The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-11, and they were blown out and shut out by the Titans last week. As we get to the root of the issue, we’re beginning to find organization and locker room issues, and of course, trust issues with new coach Urban Meyer. Dysfunctional is the word that came up.

๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ•น๐ŸŽฎ- Check out the link below! Someone on EBAY is selling the entire NES Game Collection for $59,995.00. That’s a great Christmas gift-someone will be extremely happy.

๐Ÿ’ญ-I was sitting at my desk a few days ago looking at pictures of the planets in orbit around the Sun, and I said to myself; What if there’s way more planets than we’re shown? What if there was a planet in between the Sun and Mercury for example? I googled it, and sure enough, someone in the 1800’s thought the same thing, and they named it hypothetical planet Vulcan. Wouldn’t it make sense if planets overlapped in their orbits around the Sun? In my opinion, it kind of did. Unfortunately, it was somehow proved that Vulcan was non-existent.

๐Ÿ‘ฝWeird or Not Weird? Two years after WWII ended, an alien spaceship lands in Roswell, New Mexico, a city approximately two hours away from the site the first atom bomb was tested. Do you think our ability to create and successfully detonate an atomic bomb was of some kind of interest to extraterrestrials?

๐ŸŽ„- Christmas is 12-days away. This year, Christmas is on Saturday, December 25th.

๐Ÿฅ…NHL- The Pittsburgh Penguins have been the hottest team in hockey for the last month! Since November 18th, the Penguins have gone 9-2-1 and turned their season around.

Have a warm evening, and a fabulous day tomorrow! Stay safe and healthy, and I’m going to finish watching Eclipse (Twilight Saga). ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’•

NBA Star Shunned

According to an article written on Yahoo! Sports by Chris Cwik, The Golden State Warrior’s Andrew Wiggins cannot even enter the Chase Center unless he gets vaccinated.

This decision was decided by the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and get this, they don’t care if Wiggins has a medical or religious exemption.

Again, we come to this point where the system is forcing citizens to get vaccinated. They’re not even hiding it or denying it anymore.

They’re making us chose:

No Shot/No Work

No Shot/No Money

No Shot=Outcast

The United States government was created to protect the rights/God-given rights of the individual, not tell people what to do.

If private companies are forcing citizens to get vaccinated, and they aren’t even recognizing religious or medical exemptions, then it falls on the government to protect Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the United States citizens.

Ohio State Wins With Explosive Second Half

I saw Ohio State was ranked 4th coming into their game with Minnesota, but with college football teams only playing a little more than half of the games scheduled last season, I didn’t know what to expect. Who’s for real? Who’s as good as advertised?

Lots of questions. On top of that, you have Ohio State on the road with a young quarterback leading the way.

Ohio State’s ground game was barely talked about this offseason, probably for two reasons; one, every one seemed overly concerned about the quarterback situation, and two, the man responsible for carrying the load was a red-shirt freshman.

We quickly learned about Miyan Williams though, and the rare combination of bulk and speed he possesses. The young running back scored the Buckeye’s first touchdown. It was a 72-yard run around the right end; impressive for the 5’8″ 225 pounder.

CJ Stroud started of well, 5of 7, but his play declined in the second quarter. After throwing an interception, Minnesota punched it in on a third and goal to take the lead 14-10. Ohio State got the ball back with a few minutes left in the third, and suddenly, Stroud was faced with adversity. We knew it wasn’t going to take long, and we knew Minnesota wouldn’t take it easy on him.

The Gophers defense hung tough, and Ohio State went three and out. Minnesota came back from a ten-point deficit. They were losing 10-0, and in what seemed like a blink of an eye, they were leading 14-10 and driving for a third score as time was winding down in the second quarter.

The Buckeye defense held, and the half ended.

Minnesota running back, Mohamed Ibrahim, rushed 114 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries IN THE FIRST HALF!

The second half belonged to Ohio State as they outscored Minnesota 35-17 and won the game 45-21. CJ Stroud’s play picked up also in the second half. He threw his first touchdown of the season on the first drive of the third quarter; a deep cross to WR, Chris Olave.

That’s how you want to come out of the locker room.

The Buckeye defense came up big on several drives including the strip sack that was actually a fumble and then scooped and scored by defensive lineman Haskell Garrett.

Before the night was over, Stroud threw for 294 yards and four touchdowns. WR, Chris Olave, had 4 catches for 117 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Minnesota was competitive as expected, and they hung around, but Ohio State came up with the big plays both offensively and defensively when they needed them the most.

Big Ten Showdown

Tonight at 8 o’clock the Ohio State Buckeyes will meet the Minnesota Golden Gophers. It’s the first game of the season for both teams. The Buckeyes represent the Big10 East and the Gophers the West. Minnesota has been competitive, and I expect them to throw whatever they can at CJ Stroud (OSU QB). There hasn’t been much talk about Ohio State’s ground game, so I’d like to see what that’s all about; I’d also like to see how Minnesota game plans for that tough defensive front of Ohio State. Ohio State is on the road tonight.

Alright Everyone! Enjoy the game!
