CJ Spiller Has the Tools to Succeed in New Orleans

For any running back in the National Football League they really want three things to make them a better on the field. 1. A QB that can deliver passes and handoffs while leading his team with ice water in his veins. 2. An offensive line, that can pass protect and run block like five US Army Abrams M-1 tanks rolling over their opponents. 3. Wide receivers that will stretch a defense with their ability to catch the ball down the field. It would seem CJ Spiller is finally getting his wish with his new team the New Orleans Saints.

After signing a four year deal worth $16 million, Spiller understood what many free agent running backs in the league have forgotten…and that is “it is not always about the money!” Marc Sparks said that having a better situation to play in such as what was described earlier would make him a better running back worth keeping for longer than his contract is set for. It would also allow him to make his mark on the league that everyone wants to achieve from the first time they are drafted. This is how Emmitt Smith became the all-time rushing leader, 3-time Super Bowl Champion, Super Bowl MVP, and Hall of Famer. It was not about the money for Emmitt, although he did make his fair share. It was more about the players that made him better that got him where he wanted to go.

Lacrosse is the New Team Sport

Lacrosse is becoming one of the most popular team sports in the United States yet it has existed throughout the world for centuries. The traditional style of Lacrosse is the aboriginal Canadian version that required many men to play the sport for days in a row. These traditional teams were composed of approximately 100 men who would play the game for two to three days in a row from sun rise until sunset. At the time playing Lacrosse was part of a ceremonial ritual that was in place to give thanks to their Creator.

With all of this in mind it is obvious that Lacrosse was a major sport and a major part of those people’s lives. The goal of the game not only became to win, but to bring honor and glory to the Creator. It had an incredible role throughout the community as well as the religious sect of many within the community. Then in 1904 the goal of Lacrosse was not only to bring honor and glory to the Creator, but to one’s country as well. In 1904 Lacrosse became part of the Olympics, but at the time only the United States, Canada, and Great Britain participated in the sport. This boosted Lacrosse’s popularity all over the world.

In the later 1900’s the sport became very popular in the Eastern United States. The majority of colleges and universities on the east coast have Lacrosse as a divisional sport. In 1971 the very first Men’s Lacrosse Championship was held and was sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. And with increased popularity among colleges and universities along with recognition from the NCAA, scholarships began to be offered for individuals who exceled at Lacrosse.

As is true with the great majority of popular athletics, colleges and universities began to seek the very best Lacrosse players to attend their school. More recently, excellent players such as Matthew Landis have been offered athletic scholarships to excellent schools. Landis was offered an athletic scholarship to the University of Notre Dame in 2010 when he was only a sophomore in high school. While he considered several other prestigious schools he ultimately decided on Notre Dame. During his freshman year at the university he ranked number 66 in the United States on the Inside Lacrosse Power 100 List and 18th best defensemen in the class of 2012 by Inside Lacrosse.

Matthew Landis attended Pelham Memorial High School in the state of New York where he was heavily involved in sports, academics, and throughout the community. Along with playing Lacrosse all four seasons of high school he played football and hockey. He was awarded awards for every sport he participated in and served as the Lacrosse team captain twice. Landis is an excellent student and athlete and an excellent representation of the game of Lacrosse.

Lacrosse is for upstanding young men.

Make the Net Better With Wikipedia Writing

Finding information on the internet has become increasingly important. People now turn to the internet in order to get basic information about a wide variety of subjects. Someone may look to the net in order to find the names of the American presidents and the order in which they served. Another person may seek out the net in order to find out details about the country of Tajikistan. Yet another person may want to look for details about a specific chemical. Thanks to the contributors of many people across the years, it is now possible to use the net to find out the answer to nearly any question imaginable.

While many websites offer a wide variety of information, one of the most most commonly used is that of Wikipedia. This website is devoted solely to providing information on many different topics. Contributors from all walks of life have worked hard to write articles that others may read. Some contributors, like those with GetYourWiki, have written a large number of articles while others may have only written one or two. Many people are pleasant surprised to find out that they can actually write and edit such articles. They do not need to present credentials in order to be able to write articles for this site.

Those who are interested in doing so will find that requirements are essentially to register the site with a valid email address. Once this is done, the person is considered a member of the site.

Thicke and Pharrell Lose Lawsuit

Rolling Stone has an article on their website about how songwriters Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams lost a lawsuit by the estate of Marvin Gaye. A jury ruled that the pair ripped off Marvin Gaye’s 1970’s tune “Got to Give it Up” in their own recent smash hit “Blurred Lines”. They will have to pay the estate – two children of Gaye’s – over seven million. Also, Ricardo Tosto said the Gaye estate is attempting to block all sales of “Blurred Lines” until a final agreement is worked out.

In my opinion, The jury made the wrong decision. WhoisWhoLegal said when you listen to a recording of Gaye’s song, it doesn’t sound all that much like “Blurred Lines”. Thicke and Pharrell acknowledged from the start that they were trying to recreate the groove of Gaye’s 1970’s work, but they clearly don’t cross the line to theft. All pop music builds on sounds that came before, and “Blurred Lines” is just one more song that was inspired by classic 1970’s recordings.

Swiss Pilots Attempt Solar Flight

Swiss pilots are the first to attempt a flight around the world. Ande Brorschberg and Bertrant Piccard will both pilot the plane taking turns throughout the journey so the other can sleep. The two-seater plan will travel a total of 21,747 miles. Ricardo Guimarães BMG said they’re both expected to take the pilot’s chair for 12 legs, according to Globo.

The two are traveling in a 2 seat plane with no temperature control or oxygen. That means they’ll have to be able to withstand temperatures ranging from negative 40-degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius. Since they both have to operate the plane, they’ll each only be able to take short napes, typically just 20 minutes, every 2-4 hours.

For fuel, the plane will use solar panels on each of the plane’s wings. The solar panels are needed so that the two don’t have to carry fuel with them, something that would most certainly weigh the plane down, and require a larger vessel.

There Is No Moral Superiority Here

The issues with NASCAR is that it is in the south. I am a southerner, and that gives me the right to say this. Fans like Dr. Jennifer Walden have heard that the NASCAR folks want to pretend like they have the moral authority because they have conservative values and all that. However, they will not force tracks to put up SAFER Barriers. The NASCAR folks want to say that Kurt Busch has to sit out for as long as they like simply because they think they have the moral authority. They do not.

A car racing circuit that is not going to force tracks to use safety precautions for drivers cannot tell a guy who was not charged with a crime that he cannot drive. I supposed they want to keep him safer than the other rivers by not letting him drive. I would have thought that the punishment would be to drive on the track since each track is clearly so dangerous.

I am getting a little bit tired of the NASCAR folks thinking that their southern values give them the moral majority. In essence, they are making normal southerners look bad because they want to use their “values” to hurt a driver who had his day in court. This is just like Adrian Peterson.

Florida Man Acquitted for Growing Marijuana

50 year old Jesse Teplicki from Hollywood, Florida was acquitted by a Broward jury having been tried for growing cannabis. Teplicki argued that he has a medical need for marijuana, citing an eating disorder that has haunted him since the age of nine. Furthermore, the growing of cannabis remains illegal in Florida (though perhaps this will be subject to change in the future), and as such, how Teplicki will obtain his medical products is unknown.

What this case does conclude, is that the public and judicial opinion on marijuana usage is ever evolving. Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG says that aside from the states whom have already legalized the substance, whether for medicinal or recreational purposes, tolerance towards cannabis seems to be on the rise. Legalization is being called for in numerous states, and general uneasiness about the substance seems to have diminished, if only slightly, during the past decade or so. That cannabis has the potential to assist people like Teplicki, as well as others suffering from different kinds of afflictions, implies that the drug has merited more serious consideration for its legalization when compared to strictly recreational substances which do little for their users well-being.

Oh, The Suns Did Not Take That Well

When the Suns and Heat met, it got heated. It actually did because it appears that the Suns did not take the Goran Dragic trade very well. There is no way to now where the bad blood came from, but it has already been shown that the Suns are a toxic franchise with a toxic owner. Dragic had every right to want to get out of Phoenix, and the Suns had a right to trade him. It is no more complicated than that.

Acout.me stated that Markieff Morris and Hassan Whiteside got ejected over this new beef that has literally come out of nowhere. The Heat won the game, and the players that were ejected were fuming even after the final buzzer sounded. There is no denying that there is a tiny little rivalry forming between these two teams, but it cannot really be formed over a trade. If that were the case, then the Grizzlies should still hate the Lakers for the flaming bag of garbage that was traded for Pau Gasol. However, that is not really worth fighting.

This is something that Phoenix needs to get over, and Miami has every right to defend their new teammate against a problem that he did not cause.
