Standing in at 6’5 and listed at 220lbs, Freddie Freeman is an imposing figure at the plate. After finishing off last year as one of baseball’s hottest hitters, Freeman has carried that momentum into 2017, not skipping a beat. Yet even though he’s lighting up the ball, I feel that he is not mentioned enough in the NL MVP conversation, partly due to playing on a rebuilding Braves team.

Over the past decade, Liverpool Football Club has been mediocre at best compared to the Liverpool we think about from thirty years ago. Whether it has been not finishing in the top four, inconsistency in the boss’ chair, or just flat-out not performing, that is the Liverpool we all think of when it comes to recent years. As a person who bleeds Liverpool red, it broke my heart to see the state of the club over the past few seasons. Continue reading Liverpool On The Right Path Under Jurgen Klopp’s Leadership
For the last few years, prior to about 2013, the position of shortstop has lacked a true “superstar” and has left fans wanting more. Gone were the years of Alex Rodriguez dazzling with the bat and the glove, and Derek Jeter’s age had begun to catch up with him. Sure, there were a few bright spots here and there.

So, baseball fans began to wonder, “When will the next superstar shortstop arrive?” Within 2 years, their question was answered resoundingly.

*Editor’s note: This article was largely written before reports that Russia had foreknowledge of the Syrian chemical attack.
After April 30th, Bashar al-Assad appeared to be safe in his position as President of Syria. Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., said that the United States was not focusing on his removal, and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, stated that his future would be made by the people of Syria. Those statements made few waves, seeing as it was more or less in line with President Trump’s campaign stance of non-intervention in the Middle East, and it seemed that the Syrian Civil War would continue on without deviation, but Assad had been emboldened. Last Tuesday, Assad called for an chemical air strike on a rebel held town. Continue reading The Syrian Issues

Ace 17+ PURECONTROL:
The Ace 17+ headlines the pack with a trio of versions. The Stadium is seen above and the Cage is largely the same.
