65BLACK STAR SPORTS ~ Adrian Peterson

​I KNOW myself along with many a ‘gamer’ will be using the New Orleans Saints to devastating effect this year and next since Adrian Peterson is joining the Saints.I mean with Brees along they are formidable in the pass game, now add AP and not to be forgotten, Ted Ginn Jr.  Yep, I think Brees will quickly figured how to get his offensive running and passing on all cylinders.
See what NFL.com and Deadspin each have to say!

Enjoy the videos.

P.S. plus ‘Beast Mode’ is with his hometown Raiders, what what let’s go NFL season.


Porque no, un poco de T.G.

 (had to change videos, no need to say “Nigga” excessively, smh we get it my ninjas, smh damnalready, ha, dope footage but…)

more P.S…

So you know I had to simulate the fitting 1st  game of the season, while I did mind-numbing academic work in the form of inputting student assignment grades and designing quizzes and exams Canvas. 

 I am not complaining since Canvas will allow me to be a better educator.  Yet A LOT OF TEDIOUS data input is required to best use this educational tool which many institutions are requiring of college-level Faculty that teach hybrid courses.
Just happy to blog about SPORTS and video games as a real and destressor’ even thougthough I do not gaming very much do to life commitments’ I still enjoy good athletic fears both real and virtual.

Based on 1 simulation…. If Madden is half way right, WOWZERS!


BLACK STAR SPORTS ~ “Sky High Bruin”- Mr. Jayden Hands

Future UCLA Bruin, Jaylen Hands ‘gots boosties’ as is called those with ‘hops’ (superior jumping ability) by those that have played basketball at a competitive level or with those that have ‘competed’.

My folks’ son can “Sky High”, but does he win the dunk contest of All-AMERICANS?
Whatever the outcome, happy he will be in Westwood retracing my hoop steps and scoring WAY MORE THAN I HAVE SCORED in the Wooden Center and even a game-winning three-pointer in Pauley Pavillion 🙂 yup!

Of course it was only an intramural level game-winner during my 30s. As I was out of shape from focusing on EARNING my doctorate in Urban Planning. Haha.

I thought of myself as an intramural ‘Boris Diaw’ :-/ Meaning way more game than I looked like I had, ijs, well at least in my mind.
But seriously, Jaylen has boosties!

For whatever reason I was recollecting about being a Clippers fan to a limited degree since I lived for a brief period in El Cajon and then in military (Navy) housing in the Serra Mesa neighborhood of San Diego from about 1985-87 right when my favorite baseball player instantly became Tony Gwynn.  So much so that I patterned how I approached baseball after his style, ways and pointers given from time to time.

Well before his Hall of Fame MLB career, he was nice at hoops, yes basketball While at San Diego State University.

Peep the video. To top if off the San Diego Clippers drafted him.  Surely not the most temping lure away from his love and pursuit and attainment of greatest in baseball…Plus he was A NATURALLY-GIFTED BASEBALLER (NGB)…see Trout, Grif, Puckett, Yaz, Ichiro…I will stop but so many NGBs like Valenzuela haha.

Watch below



A fellow True Blue Dodger but also baseball fan giving respect to MY FAVORITE PLAYER!

Ye Tumi Academy ~ ‘The Triple ‘A’ Approach: An Example

Still laughing 5 minutes later at 430am this commercial had me laughing BUT more importantly is a great example of “The Triple A Approach in play.  The intersection of the Arts (music and cultural heritages) + Academics (marketing of product, cultural and/or political ‘references’, setting and cinematography (also an Art)) + Athletics (‘rules of the game) – Dr. Dontraneil Clayborne
