I’m stuck in a haze, with Industry Disrupted

0

“Industry Disrupted”, by Local Craft Beer, has some of the most respective hazy IPA’s in the game right now. This innovative brewing company made shockwaves when they put West Coast IPA’s in bombers, for they were ‘disrupting the beer industry’, so LCB used this reference for fun in their new release. 

LCB’s All Haze on Me, has to be one of the best hazy IPA’s I ever had, by far. They utilize a ton of different hops in their brew, and Industry Disrupted is one of them.

Independence Day is celebrated every Fourth of July. We associated July 4th, 1776, as the day that represents the Declaration of Independence, and the birth of the United States as an independent nation.

The Constitution has their definition of this patriotic day, but Fourth of July in my perspective, represents more.

Training Camp starts in less than a month, you can hear the screams and tears of joy from the NFL faithful as the new season is fast approaching. I would like to take this time now to point out each of my “X” factors for the following 32 teams. This “X” factor can stem from the front office, a coach, a star player, or group of players for that matter. Its this focal point that I believe can either give your franchise the playoff push it needs, their first breakout season in a while, or maybe just give you the hopes that: “THANK GOD WE AREN’T REBUILDING ANYMORE”

The “X” factor is not necessarily each teams best player, but more so the player that each team needs to breakout and contribute in order for their team to have the best success. So with out further adieu lets begin with the NFC:

0
Megan Rapinoe really is the lord of women’s soccer right now, with five goals this World Cup.

Alex Morgan set up a great opportunity for Megan Rapinoe to finish, and the veteran stepped up with yet, another fantastic set piece against France on Friday. Megan Rapinoe continues to step up big for the USWNT, leading the team to victory, once again, 2-0.

Rapinoe is helping carry momentum further and further for team USA into the World Cup. USA is banking on their set pieces, as they nearly had a second goal just off deflections, they are keeping the attack aggressive early in the second half.

It’s off to the races.

The 2019 NBA Free Agency is about to be interesting, and maybe the most intriguing ever, after news of Kevin Durant to decline his $31 million option with the Golden State Warriors. Durant is currently in New York City, to asses his Achilles injury, and now will evaluate his options for free agency.

Rapinoe helps USWNT survive physical game vs. Spain

0

The first time this 2019 FIFA World Cup, the United States Women’s National Team headed to halftime without a lead, entertaining a 1-1 draw with Spain.

It was the first time the USWNT conceded a goal in 647 minutes, dating back to an April friendly vs Australia. Spain showed the US early that, they weren’t just another team.

Looks like we have ourselves a match.

The Timeout that changed the NBA Finals

Kawhi Leonard commandeers the Toronto Raptors to the first lead change of the NBA Finals, going on a personal 10-0 run late in the 4th, only to be wiped away by a rookie coaching mistake.

Raptors’ Head Coach Nick Nurse calls timeout for the Golden State Warriors?

Nick Nurse calls a timeout late in the game, just after Leonard puts on an absolute clinic, destroying all the momentum for the Raptors.

It is like icing your ownkicker. Who ices their own kicker?

Nurse was asked about the timeout during the postgame press conference, and he pointed his motive due to a recent NBA rule in 2017.

Raptors coach explained that the team had two free timeouts, only to lose one in the final three minutes, due to the new NBA Rule. He thought it was a good time to give his team rest.

Seriously?

Rest is not an excuse for calling that timeout, at that situation, in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Maybe, if it was during regular season, then sure give your players some ‘rest’, (in that small duration of a timeout) but not the Finals.

I have respect for Nurse, and what he accomplished in his first season as head coach, but that timeout was huge rookie mistake. He will have to learn the hard way, that putting the gas pedal on your opponent is a must, in not only basketball, but in all sports.

The Raptors will have to start finding momentum back somehow, with taking advantage against a Warriors team without their superstar Kevin Durant.

It looks like the Warriors gambled with their decision to play Durant in Game 5, re-aggravating his injury early in the game. This was an extremely emotional point in the game, from fans cheering him off the court to condolences from Drake.

Shout out to KD, hoping for a speedy recovery.

Can the Raptors capture momentum back without Kevin Durant for the rest of the Finals?
