Should college athletes be paid? Farewell Joe Maddon, MLB playoff predictions

The best debate about whether to pay college athletes. Cubs bid farewell to Joe Maddon but they’ll always have 2016. MLB playoff predictions

California passed a Fair Pay to Play bill that will allow college athletes in the state to profit off their name and likeness beginning in 2023. This is a monumental decision that will lead to more states following California’s lead and eventually lead to the death of the NCAA. It led to another heated debate on the internet about whether college athletes should be able to profit off their name and likeness. Ya know, just like regular students can?

I have to weigh in on this heated topic. Some people are afraid to address these topics. Not me. I am ready to tackle this head-on, but not like Vontaze Burfict, and will be unwavering in my answer.

Should college athletes be paid?


That’s it. End of argument.

Farewell Joe Maddon

We’ll always have 2016.

The Cubs and Joe Maddon parted ways after missing the playoffs for the first time since 2014. It was a move that was largely made last offseason when Maddon’s contract wasn’t extended in the offseason. After the Cubs collapsed like a Jenga tower when you get a little too cocky and pull a block without proper care and caution, it was a foregone conclusion the Cubs would have a new manager in 2020. There are many reasons for this move, which I understand, after some intensive self-reflection, but the biggest is he only won one World Series. Before the Cubs overcame a 3-1 deficit to beat the Indians and end a 108-year World Series drought, I often told myself, I would be happy with one in my lifetime. Maddon got that one. He’ll forever be a Cubs legend.

MLB playoff predictions

As a Cubs fan, you already know I hope Max Scherzer throws a perfect game against the Brewers in the Wild Card game. And you already know, I hope the Braves beat the Cardinals in the NLDS. From deep down in my stomach, with every inch of me, I pure, straight hate the Cardinals and Brewers. But g*******t, do I respect them. Will my heart overrule my brain? It doesn’t matter, I’m picking them both to lose because I think the Nationals and Braves are better.

Now for the other series.
