Draymond vs Charles

After game 2 of the western conference semifinals, Draymond Green grabbed the microphone after Golden State win with the score of 121-116 over New Orleans, and there was plenty of evidence that he was in no mood to back down from anyone’s challenge. The warriors forward had done head to head with Ramon Rondo just before halftime at the Oracle Arena. The pelicans point guard took after Draymonds “ words of wisdom” after warrior player, Klay Thompson, hit a buzzer beater three that gave them golden state a 58-55 lead at half. Draymond and Anthony Davis tumbled down the floor and Draymond performed he is act so well that he got the double foul. After the game, during the interviews, Charles Barkley made a comment about Draymond saying, “ I want to punch him in the face so bad”. Draymond also had something to say. “ I heard what he said. A lot of guys talk on Tv, stand behind a microphone and a Tv screen. The fact of the matter is if you feel that strongly about it, then punch me in my face when you see me. If you’re not going to punch me in my face when you see me and be straight up with it, then please just shut up. It’s no different than somebody sitting behind a computer screen tweeting and saying useless crap like, ‘I’ll knock you out’, and you never see them in life. But he has seen me a bunch of times and he will see me again this year. Punch me in my face when you see me, or if not no one cares what you have done. You off and it is what it is. So if you aren’t going to punch me next time, then just stop talking about it. Period.” Obviously he had to voice his opinion about it and say all of that because it is useless crap. But other than that’s statement Draymond doesn’t care but he has the better stats and has been the Warriors best all around player during the postseason helping them for Stein curry return. “We love his intensity. He’s been playing amazing this whole playoff run, taking the challenge defensively who ever he is guarding, being an officiator on offense, knocking down shots, good shots. It’s fun to watch and when his emotions are like that and he’s having fun doing what he’s doing and that’s a big pick up for our team”, curry said about Draymond green.

Should we join the military?

Hard headed or strong minded Sometimes when you go into the military you need to be both. Going into the military affects you physically and mentally, it’s not an easy thing to do and it’s not for everyone. Some people known from early on in their life that want or are made to go into the military or the navy. While others parents kinda push them to go into the military or some type of service probably because they did and their parents did and they want the tradition or service to continue on.

Although some people join for expenses. For example full medical coverage for you and your family. Once you join the military and you become a member you receive immediate full health benefits for themselves and their intermediate family; not your long distance step cousin.

Another example would be college or skills and training. The military provides advanced technical training in variety of career fields. Also many military members are able to attend college that is usually paid for by tuition assistance. Some people go straight into the military after high school because they can’t afford schooling and need assistance so they join and receive the tuition assistance.

High school sports get dropped

Most people enjoy sports and going to the games and cheering on their favorite team. In high school when you can go the games and stand in your schools student section and yells cheers to the opposing teams student section, getting the gym or field all hyped up.

But imagine if it was all gone. Not like you graduate and your not apart of it anymore. Even if you graduate you can go to the games and enjoy them and still cheer. But what if high school sports were dropped? What would all the athletes do? Could you imagine losing the feeling of going to school sitting in class, all day anxiously waiting for the school day to end to go to your game. If school sports were dropped, kids would drop out of school. They wouldn’t see a point in coming. Some students get into colleges because of sports not because of academics.

Sports are extremely important in building your character, managing time, and building your work ethic. Some people wouldn’t mind if sports were dropped because they would get more time to do homework concentrate in school work, more free time after school. Honestly though more students would be affected by dropping sports.

A lot of people enjoy it and like playing with their gender but many of them never think about playing with the other gender and play co-ed. Most sports do not offer or have co-ed teams. Sexually segregated teams believe that female athletes don’t play as well as males. Laura Pappano believes that teams should be separated by skill and not gender. Assigning team membership based on skill levels allows teams to be more competitive and recognize the athletic skills of players is different genders.
