Friday the 13th has always been rumored to bring bad luck. For the Independence 76ers, the old superstition rang true. They walked away with a crushing 69-19 loss. Going into the game, the 76ers were hopeful that they could snap their two-game losing streak. However, having several injured players and knowing they would be facing a strong Scots team, wide receiver Puneet Singh knew that to break that streak, they'd have to give it th...

Today marks an important day in America’s history. Chances are, I do not need to spell it out for you. Eighteen years ago, the planes struck the twin towers, killing 3,000 people and injuring more. I’m not telling you this to teach you the story, you already know it. I’m telling you this be...

Lana Del Rey’s new album leaves little to critique

If you told me a year ago that an album called “Norman F***ing Rockwell” would be one of the best of 2019, I wouldn’t have believed you. And yet it is.  Lana Del Rey has always been a controversial artist. Since she emerged onto the alternative pop scene in 2011 with her hit song “Video Game...

Opinion: Warriors make NBA boring

Opinion: Warriors make NBA boring

With the Golden State Warriors completing their sweep of the Portland Trailblazers on Monday night, the NBA trophy is looking like it going to be coming back to the bay for the fourth time in five years. Exciting, right? Not really. The Warriors are fun to watch, don't get me wrong, and I have been raised since birth to love them as my team. But come on you guys, this is getting old. And they're going to win again. Even if Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins do not make a return to the court, the 2015 version of the Warriors that we are seeing right now is the hottest team in the NBA. Stephen Curry is playing his best basketball without Durant to pass the ball to. In the Warriors' last 32 games without Durant, Steph has averaged nearly 30 points, 6.6 assists, and has shot the three at 42%.  Another man that seems to be on a tear right now is Draymond Green. Entering the finals, Green is coming off one of the best playoff series of his career. Green nearly averaged a triple-double against the Blazers, with 16.5 PPG, 11.8 RPG, and 8.8 APG. With the guaranteed return of Andre Iguodala (who missed game four against the Trailblazers due to a calf strain) to guard either Toronto's Kawhi Leonard or Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, the r...
