Ranking the Best Teams in All of Sports

May 9, 2016

Weekly power rankings are ubiquitous in every sport. Yet how come I’ve never seen power rankings of teams across sports? I thought of this while watching the Golden State Warriors play the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 3 last night. Though they lost, I think the Warriors are clearly the best team in sports (in America at least) based on what they have accomplished over the last one to two…

A day where Star Wars nerds far and wide join together to pay homage to one of the greatest movie series in history. I grew up on Star Wars.

Ranking the Thirteen Most-Cursed Franchises in Sports

May 3, 2016

As the Portland Trailblazers battle the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals, the Los Angeles Clippers and their fans must be miserable. Injuries to their two star players–Chris Paul and Blake Griffin–not only derailed their chances of beating the Blazers, but an opportunity to knock off the Stephen Curry-less Warriors as well. To say that nothing goes right for the Clippers is an understatement. Even after climbing out…
