my last one cut off, but I'm going to try and make this one work.
I think it was because my wife I wasn't really connected.
So this live stream is going to be about some current events.
It's gonna cover all different types of sports.
Um, from now a star NFL MBA and I'll be all of that.
And I'm basically just going to have 10 questions that I came up with regarding current events, and I'm going to share my answers with you guys, and I'm just gonna start over for my life's dream.
So my first question that we're starting roof Rhonda Rousey stirs up tension in the W B E, founded by calling the pro wrestling fake fighting for fun.
And my question is, should pro wrestling be considered a real sport? This has been a question for a long time, and a lot of people argue about it.
And in my opinion, yes, it is a spoiled.
It is a sport full of theatrics, but as we can see from their physical appearance there, obviously in the gym Okay, those wrestlers, they're lifting weights and their conditioning themselves on for the show.
They're running around.
They also practice actual wrestling moves, although again it is exaggerated that do have props.
We do have a script.
I feel like it's kind of like professional cheerleading.
In a way where there is work, there is physical work and effort put into it.
But it's also putting on a theatrical show.
Um, I feel like Rhonda is kind of comparing it to her previous fighting career, which I don't think she has room to do so because it's completely different sport in a completely different fighting technique.
Um, Jo'burg, it has said pro wrestling is very much a real thing and essentially functions of the sport and should be considered a sport.
Um, it's true that it's choreographed in plan, but there's no real way to see who will win.
And another W W wrestler, Lexie Kaufman, fired back at Rondo with her opinion, saying that it's not fake fighting because she suffered multiple sports in just sports injuries.
Excuse me like tor muscles and concussions, which, ironically, Rhonda gave Lexi a concussion that almost ended Lexie's career.
And I just find it funny that Rhonda's spouting off about how it's a fake sport, and she didn't really enjoy and that fans didn't like her, which I can kind of see why, um when she gave her fellow wrestle or Lexie concussion from not training the moves properly.
So it's like, How can you go and say all this smack about sport an entire sport when you can't even put in the work to train for it? So my next question moving on to the MLB.
MLB is considering having 30 teams play in Florida and Arizona alone, just two states without fans during the pandemic.
Now my question is, should they? Oh, I think the MLB should just post up on the season until, like, further notice, say, like mid summer, just to be safe rather than sorry.
Yes, you're not inviting fans into it, but you're still passing around a ball and you're still playing with different teas.
And if you've ever played on a sports team, you know how quickly this sickness can spread.
When you guys, you're all passing around the same ball and not washing your hands ever and and personally, I don't know how the states are right now. The pandemic.
I don't live in Arizona or Florida, but in my personal opinion.
Arizona might work, but Florida That kind of scares me.
They just had all these Miami spring breakers come from all over the country to have spring break.
They didn't shut the country down until after spring break was dead.
So they had the virus spread and multiply.
And I don't even think they've seen the peak of it yet.
And now they're considering having them go to that state.
I'm really wondering what made them.
Then consider Florida.
When to me, I'm thinking everyone went there for vacation.
That's a hot spot for the virus.
Why would they think Florida? But this isn't a for sure thing.
Bob Nightingale and MLB network insiders said that there's a lot of ideas floating around on what they're gonna do with the season.
But that is just the one that's trending right now on the Internet because it's gained, ah, lot of steam behind it, and that if they were to do it, they would have 26 stadiums to choose from, including three domes stadiums.
But personally just bead safe rather than sorry.
You know you don't want this situation to get any worse than it already is next question transitioning to a different sport.
We're transitioning to basketball.
Hey, a Todd who had committed to play for Michigan in October has now D committed and will play professionally overseas.
Next season was, there's a smart idea.
Maybe in a college athlete.
Yes, that is a completely smart idea.
They do not pay college athletes enough.
Not nearly enough.
Um, you know, college students have to put in so much work.
And when your student athlete you have to put a three times the word you're waking up at 5:30 a.
To be there at 6 a.
Waits, then go to your 8 a.m. class, then get some breakfast.
Go to your next class, make sure you have time for the trainer. Munday.
Have a mid day practice that's like two hours.
Then go to your next class, then go to your possible evening practice, which could be 234 hours long.
Then you have to go to the trainer after make sure you recover right.
Then you have gains.
Then you have travel games and you have time to travel to these games and then you have to do homework and had a social life on top of that, and then if you can't even afford tuition, you have to schedule in somewhere to get a job.
It's insane how much work student athletes put in, and it's insane.
How little **** it out of it in monetary gain.
Yes, they're getting a college degree, but they're racking up debt and student loans because not everyone gets a full ride.
Not nearly enough people get a full ride.
So him taking this opportunity to say, Hey, I'm gonna step away from this and actually get paid for what they want me to do and have a profit off of it.
And if we look at it, if we look at Michigan's coach, he signed a five year, $11 million deal.
He's making around $2 million A D.
$2 million a year has a Todd wasn't gonna make that much going in that school.
He was in that and this coach is making that $2 million out of him off of his work off his physical mark.
So any time I see and athletes say oh, instead, I'm going to go to the NFL or the MBA or overseas right away.
Get the degree later.
Online, however you see fit.
But if people want you to do a job, go get paid for it because they're getting paid off of what you're doing.
Number four Did Kaepernick sign to an NFL team? This has been floating around Twitter.
It got a lot of attention online, but no Colin Kaepernick did not sign with any NFL team.
It got really a lot of buzz online that he signed to the Jets when a fake sports center Twitter account tweeted that he did.
Now anyone e e much media is intertwined with the sports industry and how it can really, like, just spread like wildfire in a matter of hours.
So it really goes to show you how much you mean your plays a part in the sport industry.
Speaking of mid e media, sorry in the sports industry.
My fifth question.
Bringing you back to another sport NASCAR.
This is a little controversy in it.
Shouldn't ask our driver, Kyle Larson, be suspended indefinitely.
Now, if you haven't heard, Kahlil Arcing is a NASCAR driver who had a live stream like I think he was playing a live racing game like a lot of athletes have been doing that good playing games on sports network TV shows.
So he was playing a life shrinking for racing game, and while he was with a player he let out a racial slur in NASCAR suspended him indefinitely without pay, should he be suspended indefinitely.
Me personally, I don't think you should be suspended.
I think he should be fired.
Fired, completely fired.
There's there's no excuse for it.
There's no excuse for it for his racial instance of insensitivity.
For what he said, There's no excuse.
Oh, there's no need to have an investigation around it, He said.
It was live streamed. It was on TV.
Everyone recorded it, shared it on Twitter.
It's on the Internet forever.
And it just goes to show you how fast media can spread things in sports industry.
Um, he was on live stream.
He knew what he was doing.
He knew he was saying, and he issued an apology.
But to me personally, I don't think he was sorry because he only issued the apology once he was suspended.
He didn't show remorse for when he said it out loud this soon as he said it.
He got his paycheck taken away.
Um, and especially for a sport NASCAR that's already has, like bad publicity around it for being the redneck sport and being law is inclusive and other sports, you need to nip that in the bud.
If you want to create a more inclusive fan base, you need to show your fan base that we don't tolerate this and cut him out completely.
There are a 1,000,000 people out there who would love to have his spot and wouldn't even think of making the mistake that heated.
Bringing onto my sixth question.
Could sports be resuming? So now I don't know how the same. Same properly.
So excuse the butchering of this name.
Doctor Fowzie, spelled F U C I, who's an American immunologist and head of the U. S.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases went on to report that sports could resume soon if certain precautions were taken.
No, here's what he said were the precautions.
He said that fans shouldn't be alarmed a games player should be tested weekly and that they should be placed in big hotels and basically be put under surveillance like really hard surveillance.
This sounds good and bad to me.
Good, because obviously we all want things to resume.
We all want to get back to our sports.
We all want to see live games, were tired of watching these people play, too.
Okay, but it also sounds kind of bad to me because it sounds like a lot of money.
Tests are already stares, and now you're expecting us to test all of these professional athletes on every single team.
Rhythmically, I just don't see how that's feasible.
And I also don't see how it's feasible to expect all these teams to go away from their families and isolate themselves alone in hotel rooms.
I just don't see how that's possible.
I would like to see sports resume, but his precautions that he's saying just don't seem realistic in my opinion and that they should just wait it out until midsummer like everyone else's.
Better safe than sorry.
Like I said, All right, Number seven, my seventh question and answer running and exercising outside during the pandemic.
Is it safe now? Buzzfeed has created an article on how to stay safe.
Um, well, continuing your exercises at home during the pandemic.
I think this is a really good thing, actually, because I know a lot of people are going stir crazy.
And honestly, I think exercise helps with, like, mental health.
In a way, it's a release of some kind.
It gets your energy out from being inside all day.
And Buzzfeed said, to take precautions like running and walking alone, obviously, Or if you do toe actually go with a map on someone and that you should a bomb leave your shoes outside near the door because the soul of the shoes could trap the virus for, like, a couple hours or a few days because it doesn't breathe well, and it's forever.
I didn't know that.
That's good to know, um, and that you should take off your clothes as soon as you get home and either put them in the hamper just straight to the washer.
I think it's good that they're coming out with ways that you can ever signs outside because I think we're all going almost.
You're crazy and I think it's before your mental health and long as well as your physical health because being stuck inside with nothing to do, especially when you're an athlete and you're used to that physical release of working out.
I think it's something you should really look into, just a dog or at least a walk around the block.
I really think that's helpful.
Question number eight We get a few more questions, then I will conclude.
Will the x f L return ever.
Now, if you haven't seen the XFL went through major layoffs, laying off complete staff.
Um, in some leagues, we're not simply isn't some teams, they completely fired all of state loses team Um, even though they said they had funding for the next two years.
I think this is really sad because I personally almost like the XFL more than the NFL just because they have so much heart behind it.
I think the people in the XFL really value the sport almost more than some people in the NFL not saying all of them, but we all know that a lot of coaches and staff in the NFL are just there for the money.
They're just there for the $1,000,000 check and I feeling people in the XFL look at it as a second chance for their football and coaching dreams.
They actually see like a dream to them instead of just a $1,000,000 check.
And I think it's really sad that they're laying off so many people.
But of course, it's not paying as much of the NFL.
So I do see how the pendant it has affected them.
But again, the good news is, no one in the XFL has said for sure that they're going to stop the lead completely.
So there is some hope that it will come back.
And I do hope it does, because I think it's a really good thing to have them.
Number nine Last two Questions Guys number nine Should Sports Illustrated Should Sports Illustrated How fire should they have fired her? Should Sports Illustrated should they have fired Great Wall.
Now Great Wall is a very big journalist, especially in the soccer industry.
He's been with Sports Illustrated over two decades, and he's paid pretty well now Big fired who? Stating that he supposedly wasn't generating enough revenue with his, um stories, which if you're a journalist, you need to make money off your story, so that's a good reason to fire him.
But the way they did it, I don't agree with.
They basically created ah whole smear campaign If you didn't know when they fired him, they revealed how much he was making and how he wasn't getting along with his co workers. Supposedly.
And they also revealed that while a lot of his co workers were donating their paychecks Toe Cove in 19 relief for research funds that he wasn't no, I get it, Sports Illustrated.
If he wasn't generating enough money, that's completely fine.
Reason to fire someone You need to make money at the end of the day.
But to reveal how much he's making to put his paycheck on blast and to reveal what he was doing with the pain check, saying, Oh, he didn't spend his money on charity.
I think I was completely unprofessional.
Um, would we like to see all these people making thousands and thousands and almost millions of dollars donating? Yes, we would like to see it because obviously they have a room to help.
Should we pressure them into it by creating a smear campaign against them? No.
Because at the end of the day, if they don't want to spend their money, I mean shoot.
They worked for it.
We can't expect them to do anything with it, you know? So I think that was completely unprofessional of them.
They should have just kept things under wraps.
And it kind of makes me think, you know, any other journalists looking at them should think twice about taking a giant from them because you might have your business.
Could on blast last question.
Guys, this is kind of an uplifting one, because I know some of this has been pandemic related.
Which how can it not be? Was always going on.
But question number 10 in my final answer, how are kids in youth sports continuing to stay strong during this pandemic? You know, we all know especially mean because I This is my senior year.
Um, in college is an athlete.
Um, we all know a lot of student athletes.
We all know a lot of kids, athletes, kids, athletes, you Val bleeds.
We all know their seasons have been cut short.
Um, and that's horrible.
Especially when you're in kid and it's your only thing to do and the only thing you like to do.
It's when you see your friends.
It's got to be hard.
It's heartbreaking. Almost.
You just feel like the world is ending.
I know a lot of people.
I felt like that.
But it's been reported through Yahoo News that a lot of kids coaches have actually donated their time for free.
They're creating videos.
They're creating social media accounts for their, um, the kids that their coaching Congar 02 and see exercises that they can do in their garage with their backyard or their driveway.
And they're doing this for free sitting that this is the least they could do.
And I do think it's the least they could do.
You know, it's these coaches were hired to coach these kids and a lot of the times in sports, especially with kids like club on high school ball.
Now kids have to pay fees to play.
Kids have to pay sports fees and a lot of kids can't afford that and they work really hard to come up with the money to pay for it.
So when their season gets cut and they looked forward to this need raised all this money for them to play this season.
You know, it really is the least they could do for these coaches to say, Here, here's some exercises you can do at home to keep you know your passion alive and to keep up the good work and to get ready for whatever you can return.
So I think that's really good that these people are doing it.
A specific coaching general who's doing really good with it.
Chicago youth hockey coach Christian Christian Homer.
It is holding a live conference calls not only for kids in Chicago, but he's inviting anyone to join.
So he's now coaching kids all over the country.
So I think that's really good that during the pandemic we can see you know, some good news that kids are still being able to get the coaching that they need for free because I deserve it.
So you all that has been my 10 current event questions and answers.
I covered NASCAR, NFL, MLB, you sports W D B E soccer.
We've covered it all.
Um and you know, I hope you guys, they're staying safe out there.
Hope you enjoyed my life stream and I'll talk to you guys later.
All right, See you later.
