Coaches Say Things After A Big Win, It’s Part of Sports

I’m sure we’ve all heard what Coach Orgeron said in the locker room of Bryant-Denny Stadium after upsetting the Tide 46-41, so I won’t repeat it.

But here’s the way I see it, folks. It’s part of sports, I’m sure we’ve all heard coaches say things like this in a locker room after a big win.

Emotions were running high and Coach O just said what was on his mind. Do I think it should’ve been videoed?

No, coaches talking in the locker room, is like us talking to family or close friends. It should not have been videoed, but it was.

I’ve heard coaches say things like this many times in the locker room, the difference here is nobody videoed it.

I want you to watch Saban’s mouth after Alabama doesn’t successfully execute a play and the media pans over to him. Tell me the difference.

There isn’t one, coaches want to win just as bad, if not worse than their players. Things happen.

Get over it and move on, instead of crying and carrying on saying “He shouldn’t have said that.”

Nick does the same thing, under different circumstances on the sideline. It’s called adrenaline people.

We’ve all said things we didn’t mean when our adrenaline was pumping.

You don’t see the world breaking into outrage when Saban has his sideline/media rants do you? No, so if you can’t handle the energy of the sport, it’s simple, don’t watch it.

To the Selfless Individuals that Fight for Our Freedom Daily

I know lately, I haven’t been writing about sports, but this is something that needs to be written.

Often times, we find ourselves too wrapped up in our busy lives to really sit back and think about why we get to live our lives freely.

It’s because of every single selfless individual that has the courage to fight for us and our freedom.

Because of their sacrifices, we are allowed to live each day knowing that we woke up as free Americans and we will go to bed as free Americans.

We are free because of the many hours, days, and years that our veterans have spent away from their loved ones, unsure of what the outcome may be.

But even with that uncertainty, they constantly serve this country with no regrets.

Truth is, they don’t do this for themselves, they do this because they have to. They serve this great country because they love this country that much.

President Donald Trump says “Make America Great Again” but in my eyes, this beautiful country has always been great because of the outstanding, selfless men and women that risk their lives daily just to keep their homeland’s freedom.

Over my 21 years of life, I have had the honor of knowing and working with numerous veterans of all branches and I make sure each of them knows how thankful I am for their service.

If you have a veteran in your family, are friends with one or run across one in public today, be sure to thank them for their service.

Because without them, where would we be?

Music is the Best Medicine

It all started back in May of 2014, I went through a lot of tough times back in 2014, and my friend was having her 16th birthday party somewhere around the 15th or 20th of that month and I had heard that a rock band called Framing The Red, out of Jackson, Mississippi, would be playing the party.

At the time, I only knew one of their songs and that is because I looked them up on YouTube. Besides that one song, I really didn’t know what to expect but I wanted to celebrate my friend’s 16th birthday with her.

When I got to the party, I could hear the music from outside of the venue, I knew the music must be good if I could hear it before even reaching the door.

I walked in and greeted my friend and several other friends that were at the party. As the night grew older, the music got better and I’m so glad that I went to the party because this band has become some of my best friends.

Unlike some bands, they play a majority of original with a few mixed in just to keep your attention.

As I was leaving the party that night, each member shook my hand and introduced themselves to me.

They have had a few changes over the years, but they haven’t let that slow them down at all. These guys play somewhere around 200 to 250 shows a year all across the country, from New York to California and everywhere in between. Thank you, Paul Cox for introducing me to this band. They definitely changed my life.

If you haven’t heard them, I highly recommend you go look them up on YouTube and everywhere else. If you like Southern Rock, you won’t be disappointed. Music truly is the best medicine.

When Willie Nelson Goes to Heaven, What Will Happen to Country Music?

It’s a fact, we’ve all got to pass away at some point. But what will happen when the most recognizable musician in the genre goes to heaven?

I have a feeling the country music genre will go to the grave with him. Willie Nelson, 86, has been touring this country since 1956 and he’s still touring in 2019, singing his songs with that silky, raspy, golden voice that he possesses.

Call me old school, but I truly love Willie Hugh Nelson and the music that he continues to distribute.

In a world that is full of mixed-genre music nowadays, he has stayed true to his roots and stuck it out.

Nelson has never let the constant evolution of music change him at all, he’s simply an ‘old soul in a new world.’ You see, kids these days don’t know anything about real country music.

They only listen to the mainstream country music and that newfangled stuff that people nowadays have shoved in the storied genre of country music and call it “country.”

Perhaps, those people should sit down with Willie and let him explain what real country music is. I have a feeling that he would include Merle Haggard, George Jones, Johnny Cash and so many others in that list.

Sure, Willie has his rebel ways, but he wouldn’t be considered an outlaw if he didn’t keep his rebel ways, would he?

He is one of the very few artists left that sing songs about life back then, real-life experiences and real emotion.

I’m genuinely concerned about what will happen to this genre once the red bandana-wearing, ‘Trigger’ playing outlaw is no longer with us.

I’m worried about what this genre will be like when the silver-haired Willie is singing his many hits in his golden voice from the gates of Heaven.

I truly believe country music will go to the grave with him. What will happen to country music when Willie enters Heaven’s gates?

(Saving Country Music).

Have You Ever Watched An Ed Orgeron Interview With the YouTube Closed Captioning on?

If you have never watched an interview of LSU head coach, Ed Orgeron, on YouTube with the closed captioning on, you’re missing out.

I just thought I couldn’t understand what he says, but after watching the YouTube interview with closed captioning on, I have come to the conclusion that I can understand more of his gibberish than I originally thought I could.

In fact, I found myself laughing at the captions so often that I couldn’t laugh anymore.

It made me feel extremely bad for Coach O. He’s just trying to address the media and the closed captioning just makes his interviews even better than they already are.

It’s quite possibly the funniest interview I have ever watched, and I have been a part of and watched many interviews in my life.

Coach Oregeron has the best interviews hands down. Even if you can’t understand what he is saying which makes it even better.

If you get a chance, I highly recommend looking up Ed Oregeron interviews on YouTube with closed captioning on. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Don’t Let Your Past Poison Your Future

Often times, we find ourselves dwelling on the past, dwelling on and worrying about things that are completely out of our control.

When we do that, we aren’t helping ourselves in the least bit. In fact, when we do that, we aren’t making our future any better, instead, we are making it worse. What has happened in the past no longer matters.

It’s a part of the past for a reason, personally, I’ve had a rough, life-threatening past but I refused to let that poison my future. We’ll get into that at a later date.

When we worry about things in the past, we end up tearing our own lives apart even when we don’t realize it. If we focused on our futures as much as we do our pasts, this world would be a better place.

It’s never too late to change your mindset, stop letting your past poison your future. Instead, let your past poise you for the future. Anything is possible. All you’ve got to do is believe in yourself.

Be the lion when all others are playing sheep. Don’t put your future in danger because of your past.

The Honest Truth Behind Alabama’s “Weak Schedule”

It has been said for years, that Alabama “has a weak schedule” so on and so forth.

But the truth here is the fact that Alabama is only left with a handful of opponents, because schools don’t want to play the Saban-led Tide.

They’re left to choose from teams that are at the bottom of the barrel, teams that are rebuilding.

When people say that the Crimson Tide has a weak schedule, they don’t take into account the fact that nobody is chomping at the bit to play them.

Even though they know that it will help them with experience and they would receive a nice check for games like that, teams honestly are uninterested in playing a team that seemingly dominates year in and year out.

Nick Saban said it best before this season ever started when he said “I tell you what, I’ll give you their phone number and if you can convince them to play us, let us know and we’ll schedule them, but until then, I don’t want to hear the ‘weak schedule’ comment.”

So before you comment on Alabama’s “weak schedule” take into account the honest truth behind their schedule.
