Take A Knee During the National Anthem in Sports

Lately we have seen a lot of the players in sports, especially the National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association decided to take a knee or locking arms with others. They were shown on television and as well in the media, there are two divided groups who support the decision of the players to take a knee or to lock arms and who are against the decision of the players taking a knee or lock arms with others. Players, coaches and even owners would decide either to take a knee or to lock arms with others while the National Anthem plays or sings by certain singers which they traditionally do so before the game starts. From the beginning, it was Colin Kaepernick as a quarterback at San Francisco 49ers last year where he decided to sit on the bench during the National Anthem in protest, as the media immediately noticed that and the next game Colin Kaepernick decided to take a knee instead of sitting on the bench like he did in the beginning but this time a few of his teammates joined the protest by taking a knee with Colin Kaepernick. This was last year, that protest were criticized heavily by some of the people and since then Colin Kaepernick have taken a knee during the National Anthem almost the entire of his 2016 season before he decided to opt out of his contract with San Francisco 49ers to test out the market to see if there are other NFL teams who would be interest in obtaining him to be their quarterback but unfortunately it was at the wrong time because almost every NFL teams didn’t need a starting quarterback which is what Colin Kaepernick looks for. Not only that, I am sure that maybe there are a couple of NFL teams who would be interested to obtain Colin Kaepernick but feared the attention that Colin Kaepernick may bring if they were to sign him since the National Anthem protest.

Hey guys and women! I hope that every one of you are doing well, I am doing well myself aside being a bit cold as it is at 11 degree here in the eastern part of Kentucky and that is darn cold if you ask me. Now that the Christmas has passed by and as well the New Year has passed away so there are several days with no holidays for us except for the students who attend schools because of snow days. I remember that when I was in school, I always roots for several days of snow because it would mean that the school would be closed and this allows me to enjoy the snow days with some of the friends that I used to hang out with a several years ago, when we were in school together. Makes me wonder how some of the people who I used to hang out with, the ones that I used to talk with in school or my old classmates have done lately as most of them I haven’t talked to or seen in more than a decade since I graduated in the year of 2005 so that is twelve years ago, I was wild back then especially when it comes with some girls because I would use to flirts a lot with the girls, I went to prom four times with each different four girls so two prom in middle school and two prom in high school. I almost went for the fifth, this was the year after I have already been graduated as there was a girl who I used to date when I was very young (7-9 years old) asked me to go to the prom with her and I rejected in matter of few seconds after being asked because that I knew the reason which was that she didn’t want to or maybe was embarrassed to take her fianc√© to the prom and that guy was almost forty years old while she was eighteen or nineteen years old.

Hey guys and women! How are all of you doing tonight? I hope that all of you are doing well, not only that I also hope that every one of you are keeping yourselves warm especially in the northern from east to west in the United States, especially in the eastern part since that is where I am at and it is a bit cold outside but at least it is doable if you are under the roof with something that keep the house heated like fireplace, portable electric heaters or the floor heater like my house. Here in the state where I live in, Kentucky in east on the borderline between Kentucky and West Virginia. I believe that this area has one of few most bipolar weathers that the mother nature just cannot decide which it is for us to be in, is it going to be warm or is it going to be cold or is it going to be warm and then pummel to blistering cold in matter of hours at sunset. I lives in rural area if that’s what they call it, some call it a partial of the city or some calls it in mountain and that is what I also go by since I lives in or more so on a mountain. I am a fan of my area sometimes, sometimes I am not fan of this area because of that bipolar weather and there is barely anything to do except riding ATV or side by side as we are surrounded by Appalachia mountain which is one of the beloved mountain in the eastern United States as the Appalachia mountain covers several states such as Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and other couple more states but you can easily find the information about Appalachia mountain by your best friend Google or Bing.

How are every one of you guys and women have done lately? I hope that all of you are doing well, I am doing well myself but lately I have been somewhat more tired than I usually have been in few months because I think it is where I am on a time restrain which is one of few things that I don’t like about the time but like I have said before that the time are part of our life since our birth and will be part of our death as in from time of birth to time of death. So, imagine a few centuries ago where there was no time for the people, time have become part of our life when the technology advanced and invented a clock. Who do we thank for the time? To my understanding, in this case not many of the people know this but the time were invented mainly for the railroads company because they need a way of knowing when to depart and to arrive at certain places so that’s how the different time zones invented such as EST, PST or whatever is because of the trains. I am not exactly sure how the clock were invented and for what to begin with but I do know that the time zones were invented for the trains which you can find about that from our best friend Google or Bing. Ever since the time or a clock were invented along with the time zones, it restrains us to the point that it limits us in doing something and get whatever it is that we need to get done. For example, if a news outlet tasked you to write a draft with a deadline by tonight at 11:59PM so that they can have it reviewed and pass it in for approval to be submit to their news website or if lucky on their newspaper but you were occupied with something else and then you checked your watch to see that it is saying 10:30PM or 10:45PM that would put you in a frustration situation by thinking whether if you were to start writing a draft would you be able to make it in time before the deadline so you could send in your draft to an editorial team? You will start feeling very pressured, wondering if it is possible or if it is impossible and determining if you have the will to push yourself to finish the draft on time? Very rarely that anyone will be able to make it in time because writing a draft usually takes about one, two, three hours or sometimes longer as it depends on what you are writing about or on what and once you have finished writing you would still need the time to double-check to make sure that everything you write is good enough or if it needs some correction and whatnot.

I am going to try my best to make this a short tidbits article but again I really don’t know if it will be a short or long, sometimes I would have about three to five topics that I want to talk about and next thing I know that after I finished writing what I wanted to talk about these three to five topics I ended up thinking of more topics that I would like to talk about on the fly so when it comes to me writing any tidbits it is really unpredictable whether if it’s going to be only a few or is it going to be a several topics. As right of now I have about three or four important topics that I need to talk about and hopefully that I don’t start thinking of more good topics that I would want to talk about which I have often when it comes to writing tidbits article. If I do ended up writing more than intended with three or four topics then I hope that you bear with me and who knows maybe these topics that I thought of on the fly could be valuable information for some of you to know about. I know that there is two things that I must talk about in this tidbits, these two topics won’t be pleasing to some of you and this even may anger some of you but I truly don’t care because this is my opinions or my experiences. If you disagree then that is perfectly fine because it’s my opinion or my experience which not everyone have the same opinion as mine or the experiences that I had experienced and you are more than free to share your own opinions or experiences on your weblog if you have one as you have every right to do so just as I do with mine.

Olympic Rio 2016, United States Won It All!

I would like to personally congratulate all the athletes from United States of America for not only winning the most medals but also winning the most gold, silver and bronze medals in Olympic RIO 2016! United States team have won exactly 121 total medals with mix of 46 gold, 37 silver and 38 bronze medals which is an unbelievably feats for the United States team bringing to their home in the United States. Of course I am not the only one, but I am sure that most of Americans in United States are very happy about their awesome feat too as they brings home more than just the most gold medals but also most medals with the mix of gold, silver and bronze. Of course the sport in the United States is undoubtedly the best out of any other countries, however there are a country that is better at a certain sport than the United States which I am sure that most of us know that it is the United Kingdom in soccer or they call it football over there but over here in the United States we calls it soccer and that somewhat make a sense because the ball touches the foot so football so I see why United Kingdom came up with that name for the sport. But the rest, United States dominates the sport nonetheless and I would also like to congratulate every other country’s team for bringing some medals to their home because Olympic is all about the sport itself. Even though I am American living here in the United States, of course I am going to say that I am unbelievably proud of the United States team for having a such feat like this, bringing home the most medals along with all other most three medals but still I think we can say that it is a healthy and fun sport while at the same time congratulating other country’s team even those who didn’t win any medals because all it counts is the sportsmanship.
