It has been a whirlwind in the media with politics. The threats against other countries, the fight for healthcare, the rallies dividing citizens further a part, and most importantly the montage of tweets from the POTUS. I have a platform where I can share my thoughts. The joy of freedom of speech. I may be a football fan, but first and foremost I am a black woman in the United States of America. I AM BLACK! I have given my take on the Kaepernick situation that seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day. Could the POTUS have taken things too far with his latest rant of comments?
It feels like forever since I’ve written a blog post, but truly it’s been over a week. I hope everyone had an amazing Summer. Football is officially back and of course I’m all about that black and yellow #SteelerNation. Who will make it to the Super Bowl? Will anyone have an undefeated season? Aside from those basic questions every season, there’s been a lot of conversation surrounding boycotting the NFL. I for one will not be participating in that.
Football season is right around the corner. Preseason starts with the Hall of Fame Game on August 7th and the first official game of the season starts September 8th. I’m beyond excited and ready to see my squad, The PITTSBURGH STEELERS, make their way to the Super Bowl. Last year, we were close, but injuries got in the way. Just when I thought we were healthy, we have two key players that get suspended for substance abuse violations.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have redeemed themselves from a sloppy game in the first week against the Super Bowl champs, the New England Patriots. Thankfully the game wasn’t a blowout (28-21), but the as a fan, the momentum of the team is disappointing. The team can be on a roll and then no scoring in the next quarter. Are the Steelers really being beat, or are they beating themselves?
Training camp has started which means football season is around the corner. Hurray! There’s been plenty of coverage of what’s going on during the training camps from the various teams. Two pictures in particular that are floating around is that of Ciara, Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks, and Baby Future. They were spotted a couple weeks ago at the San Diego Zoo looking like a cute little family. Yet, a lot are bashing Ciara for bring her son around her boyfriend. Is it too soon?
As a Steelers fan I could not be happier that Tom Brady’s suspension was upheld. First off, if there’s any team I hate as much, okay nearly as much as the Ravens, it’s the Patriots. It’s just something about them that I can’t stand. No it’s not the previous cheating allegations, no it’s really nothing against Tom Brady because he’s a beast as what he does. No it’s not the owner, general manager, coach. It’s just something about the team that irks me.
Compared to last years Super Bowl BLOWOUT in Jersey, (click HERE for my review) I was excited for this years game because the competition was beyond evident. Before I get into the my review, CONGRATS TO JEROME BETTIS! He’s on his way to being enshrined in football history as a member of the 2015 Hall of Fame Class. #GoSteelers #Steelernation.
Continuing with the congrats, CONGRATS to the New England Patriots. No I’m not a fan of the team, but that was one hell of a game.
