CLEVELAND, OH — Cold. Rainy. Miserable. Sounded like and felt like a typical day on the lakefront in Northeast Ohio in late April. Thanks to the first NFL Draft being held in the age of COVID, none of it matter to the throng of football mans and media that descended onto the shores of Lake Erie.

In the shadow of the home of the Cleveland Browns’ First Energy Stadium and global tourist attractions such as the Great Lakes Science Center and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland was more than ready for it’s primetime closeup, but shined like…


MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. Those are the words that now former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin heard after hearing his fate be decided in the killing of George Floyd.

With many watching and following the Chauvin trial globally, 4/20 will forever be known as George Floyd Day instead of the much-celebrated day for marijuana use. As expected…


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After being acquired in a blockbuster trade from the New York jets, and the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft right around the corner up in Cleveland, is Sam Darnold the guy down in Carolina?

Darnold, the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft out of the University of Southern Carolina, passed for 8,097 yards, 45 touchdowns and 39 interceptions in three seasons, before being dealt to the Panthers.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — It’s not too often when a 11-time national champion, coached by the game’s greatest ever is called a Cinderella. Thanks to their improbable run, the 11th-seeded UCLA Bruins are exactly that.

CLEVELAND, OH — With the 2021 NFL Draft roughly one month away in Cleveland, one team to watch who might in the market for a franchise quarterback is the Carolina Panthers.

Carolina (5–11), who finished third in the top-heavy NFC South under journeyman veteran, Teddy Bridgewater, are currently set to pick seventh, with a glaring need for a potential franchise signal-caller under second-year head coach Matt Rhule.

With arguably the NFL’s best all-purpose weapon in RB Christian McCaffery and WR D.J. …


SANTA MONICA, CA — With the NBA trade deadline officially come and gone, the two biggest winners, who improved their chances of dethroning the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers are the Denver Nuggets and the 2020 NBA Finals runner-up, Miami Heat.

Denver, currently fifth in the Western Conference acquired C JaVale McGee from the Cleveland Cavaliers for Isaiah Hartenstein and two future second-round picks, added some much-needed depth behind new NBA MVP front-runner in C Nikola Jokic. The Nuggets, who lost to the Lakers in the West Finals also landed F Aaron Gordon — along with Gary Clark —…


SANTA MONICA, CA — In the world of celebrity photography, there are many notable and truly talented ones. Names such as Anne Lebowitz, Mario Testino, Dan Winters and Steve McCurry to name just a few.

Pandemic bed death is totally a thing, and here’s how to combat it.

The novel coronavirus has literally changed everything. It’s changed our lives as we know it, how we interact with the public, and how we interact with our families. It’s created an entirely new paradigm that few of us have the skills to cope with in a healthy way — which means we’re turning towards some bad habits that can not only cause issues with our mental health, but also our physical health — not to mention completely destroy a sex drive.

Sure, plenty of people have chosen…


CLEVELAND, OH — With the 2021 NFL Draft roughly a month and a half away here in Cleveland, could the host Browns be sending some mixed signals?

Cleveland, who finished the 2020 season on the road in defeat to the Super Bowl runner-up Kansas City Chiefs, have been one of the most aggressive teams in the early round of free agency in signing former Los Angeles Rams defensive backs in CB Troy Hill (four years, $24 million), John Johnson III (three years, $33.75 million) and former Atlanta Falcons first-round pick, Takk McKinley ( one year, $4.25 …


CLEVELAND, OH — Names such as Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Ohio State’s Justin Fields, and most recently Zach Wilson of BYU have been on the minds and lips of NFL Draft experts for months. The one name that many also mention, and who may be arguably the one to keep an eye on is Trey Lance from North Dakota State.
