Pop culture has given us many famous foosball players, like Leif Garrett, Joey Tribiani, and those German guys on Community. But real life foosball stars? Not so much. That’s all about to change on 10 college campuses, though (or, as those Germans would say, things are so on that ‘they have now become very much like Donkey Kong”).
And it’s all thanks to Rider Sandals, SALT™, and most importantly, you!
A lot of sports fans dread July and August. Basketball, hockey, and football are gone, while only baseball remains to entertain us. Some years we get the Olympics or World Cup as a special treat, but this year, we have no such luck.
So, to entertain you, I’m taking a spin around the sports world to cover three stories that should have you cheering during these dog days (with money-savvy lessons, of course).
Tonight, 60 young athletes will find new jobs via the 2013 NBA Draft. And while analysts will assign words like “upside” and “length” to many of the picks, I’m hoping to hear just one descriptor: “fashionable.”
Yes, draft pick fashion has been legendary for decades, so much so that I had to include two videos this week (and still, Drew Gooden’s Dr. Evil-esque outfit didn’t make the cut!). The lesson here? Clothes are important when meeting a potential employer, but you’re more important.
Growing up in the Caribbean, hockey was never a huge thing in my life. Now, after 4 years of living in Boston, I can’t help but embrace the sport.
Maybe it’s the ice, the fast pace, or the fact that being a 6-foot tall man with a scruffy beard is kind of a requirement—who knows, but I’ve managed to enjoy the NHL season whenever it comes around.
The school year is waning, and no matter which year of college you are close to finishing, you’re bound to be facing some decisions.
Coincidentally, 32 football teams will make some very high profile decisions tonight. They’re convening under bright lights in front of a huge crowd at Radio City Music Hall for the 2013 NFL Draft.
The NBA regular season has come to a close and it was a doozy. So many great things happened, some people lost track of what was going on.
But now we’ve reached the best part of the season—the playoffs. It’ll take about 2 months (seriously), but a champion will be chosen.
Despite what Charles Barkley says, I think that there is plenty to learn from NBA players. In fact, I was able to find a few players in this year’s playoffs that can teach you a lesson or two.
