It's been a little over three weeks since the NBA season was suspended due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Over the past few months I've dabbled in some documentaries and developed an interest in learning about the state of the environment and climate change. I've become more aware of how it is affecting things such as life underwater like fish and coral, as well as various other animals and parts of land. After...

Let me just start out by saying I'm no fan of Tom Brady. But as a football fan, like everyone else, I'm very intrigued to see what team he signs with this offseason.

The NBA Playoffs are only six weeks away. This year, there is more parody in the league than there has been in arguably the last five years, as the Warrior's dynasty has been put on hold.

It was March 2019 and I had just witnessed the Knicks get completely embarrassed, yet again.
