Professional athlete salaries

Ok, I think it's rant time. It's been a while, but here we go. What is it with athletes demanding millions of dollars to play sports for a living? I mean seriously, Why wouldn't you be happy with getting paid to play. Millions of people play sports recreationally, and these  people have the audacity to demand millions of dollars to play a game. A FREAKING GAME!Calm your ass down you overpaid clown. If you aren't happy making 5 million dollars  a year to play basketball, which by the way is low for a good player, then you need to have your head examined. That's all for now.

Who will win the World Cup

Who will win the World Cup?  It's a difficult question to answer, but I'm going to do it. Most people would say Spain or Brazil. I however am going to say Germany. Simply because of their size, strength, and talent. Mesut Ozil will dominate the cup. I predict he will have at least 9 goals in the tournament. Along with the goal scoring of Ozil, Mario Gomez will also have a positive affect on the Tourney.   As if that won't be enough, Bastian Schweinsteiger will score at least 6 goals himself. You heard it here first.  Germany will win the World Cup in a final against Brazil. That is my prediction. If you have a different opinion let me know in the comments section.

Top Five Cutest Things In Love Interests:

Top Five Cutest Things In Love Interests:

1. Awkward. It is. refreshing when the boy isn't  super smooth,  angsty, or a flirt. I like a guy who  stumbles on his words or geeks out everyone once in a while. Rather then the over -perfect  boys who wouldn't dare do something so uncool in a lot of Y.A novels. 

2. Heroic.  I tend to fall for the guys who really want to help  people, or make a difference. You know, the cliché  dashing knight who  willingly steps in front of an  arrow to save  a widow.  Someone who knows there's good in the world and  tries to make it even more so. It its annoying  though when the love interest is Over- Protective a not allowing the girl to try anything or do anything for herself. If she can't fight her own battles how will she ever grow ?

3.  Smart.   A love interest who reads classics or studies advanced math books  is really cute. You know the guy who can blurt out random facts at any given time.  It's a lot less cute when he is condescending about it. There is no reason to go  get a Sherlock sized ego Mr., Love Interest. Also do you have to keep telling the girl how stupid she, is all the time !  she already ahs low self confidence !

4.  Funny.  I know, I know this is an old one. But, book guys who make me laugh hold a closer place in my heart them Mr. Over-Serious Angry Face He-Man.  Also there is no need to be a complete goof all the time Love interest. A little humor goes a long way.

5.  Sad backstory.  ... Okay so I am a teen girl ! Even I  can fall for the clichés . Yes a boy with a sad backstory automatically has my pity and my heart just like a  puppy left on the side of the road.   Just no more  whole family's dead  for the sake of convenience.  Since having actual parents or at least ones who care  , is rare in middle grade or YA novels.
What do you find cute in Love Interests? Who do you think is the most crush-worthy guy I literature right now ?

Little women love triangle

                                                                  Warning spoilers ahead !

Honestly I never got love triangles.  It was always so obvious who would end up with whom.  Sorry but Bella and Jacob or Katniss and Gale was never going to happen.  Also love triangles just seem to distract from the main point of the plot. Unless the novel is actually classified as a romance I really don’t want two hundred of the three hundred pages to be about who Miss Mary Sue is kissing. Love triangles also seem to make fans of the series act like this…

Don’t believe me look up fan fiction. Yep, case closed. There is one love triangle though that I can’t actually hate. One that was so impactful, and so heart breaking  that it had girls of all ages in different centuries ,sobbing . The Jo/Laurie/ Bhaer (or Jo/laurie/Amy) love triangle.
           To truly understand why Bhear won , you need to know the author Louisa May Alcott's view point. The book we call “Little Woman” is actually Little Women and it’s sequel Good Wives combined.  The original Little Women cut off after Meg agreed to be married but before she actually was.  So at that point none of the pairings were permanent. This was kind of a bad choice in the fan’s opinion. nI Louisa May Alcott's own words...

 Jo’ should have remained a literary spinster but so many enthusiastic young ladies wrote to me clamorously demanding that she marry Laurie, or somebody, that I didn’t dare to refuse & out of perversity went & made a funny match for her. I expect vials of wrath to be poured out upon my head, but rather enjoy the prospect.” From the letters of Louisa may Alcott

So forth Jo and her odd match Professor Bhear fell in love while Laurie was stuck with Jo’s younger sister Amy. Making fans everywhere miserable. For this I’ll never be able to forgive Louisa May Alcott.  Jo and Laurie belonged together.

Laurie was the rich, mischievous, dashing boy next door who like Jo herself was out of place in crowds. The two of them even met hiding from society behind curtains at a party. They both were into art. Laurie wanted to be a musician while Jo dreamed of being an author.  Laurie was just as high spirited and adventures as Jo.  He would have been by her side to make life interesting, exciting.

Professor Bhear was older, wiser and much more of a mentor figure then a friend.  Bhear helped Jo become a better writer, and somehow won her love in the process. Bhear seemed to genuinely care for Jo, but was also dull and boring. Someone I could see Jo regretting marrying, in a few years. Jo was far to adventures for the old Professor!

It better fit Jo’s personality to pick Laurie.  She wanted excitement, adventure, live ! Her romance should have been passionate and thrilling ! 

Often I hear two arguments that justify Louisa May Alcott’s reasoning’s for picking Bhear.   Both actually said in  said in the book.  The first is, Jo and Laurie are too similar. They would bicker and fight like cats and dogs.  This is a vialed point, but I’d like to point out that there aren’t any perfect couples. Jo and Laurie may be similar but that helps them connect. They have the same feelings, temper and interests.  They understand each other in a way Bhear never could get Jo. I feel like Bhear’s older calmer personality contradicts far to much with Jo.

The other common reason people don’t think Jo and Laurie belong to together is just so utterly ridicules, it’s hard for me to type.  They say Jo is to different for Laurie. They think Laurie needs a nice pretty wife that is beloved by society and wouldn’t make the blunders Jo does. They think Jo’s scribbling and passion for writing would annoy Laurie.  

Laurie was never good at society either.   He never wanted to have to deal with money and business. His dream was to be a musician, an artist like his father. Unfortunately his grandfather would never let that happen.  So why would Laurie try to stop Jo from writing. He always encouraged her about it. Why would Laurie care about what society thought? When we met Laurie he was hiding form society. The only time Laurie started to care about his wealth and other’s opinions was after Jo rejected him. He was so distraught and depressed he pretty much became another person. Without Jo beside him Laurie didn’t have the strength to rebel. Laurie settled in to the life of a wealthy business man and toke Joe’s bratty and spoiled sister as his wife. He never achieved his dreams or goals.  Laurie’s future was actually pretty pathetic.

Jo later opens up a school for boys with Bhear were she plays Marmee to them all. Jo does also become an accomplished author. She lives peacefully, and seems happy. Although  now maternal, and loving Jo doesn’t have nearly as much spark of adventure in her.  

I sincerely wish it could have been otherwise, I wish the love triangle in Little Women would have ended like it first seemed to, with Jo and Laurie happy together. Sadly the author had another plan… still Little Woman Is one heck of a great book with  the best love triangle I ever read.  
What side are you on Laurie or Bhear ?

Free Agency

So a lot of people complain about teams stockpiling assets to make blockbuster deals come free agency, but it is a sound strategy when you think about it. I'm targeting the NBA specifically on this one, as it is most prevalent in the NBA. The most recent examples I can think of would be the Rockets' signing of All-Star center Dwight Howard, which was a horrible move by the way, and the Warriors signing of Team USA player Andre Iguodala. Teams doing this is a great way to keep the league balanced. Somehow that doesn't happen though because you will always have teams that are richer than the other. For example the Heat have three All-Stars in their starting 5. Those being LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. That's how professional sports work these days. It's not which team is smarter, it's which team is richer. You buy the best team. Very rarely do you see a team win a championship with a group that developed over time with a roster that have been on the same team for a while. It just doesn't happen. Players don't want to stick around and wait for a team to develop. They want to go to a team that is already winning. That's why when free agency comes around and the contracts of star players expire, they jump ship and join a team that made the playoffs without that player. Free agency can make or break a team, it just depends how much money you have.

How to be a team basketball player.

A lot of people don't know this from watching the NBA, but it takes a full team effort to win a basketball game. I know this from experience, as I play varsity level basketball. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for your team. Whether it be having more practices to work on what needs to fixed, or just helping team members individually with something they're having trouble with. The biggest thing for me, is saying positive. If your team is behind, and your teammates start to give up, you have to pick them back up. If you don't keep a positive attitude during a game, it's pretty much impossible to win. You have to encourage your younger teammates to keep trying, even if your losing. No matter what happens, you have to take something from every game and get better. Whether it be turning the ball over less, or learning to make that extra pass to get a shot within the flow of the offense. As opposed to taking the first open shot you get, which are often forced or off balance. To be a great team player, you have to go all out on both sides of the court. You can't make a mistake on offense, and then jog back on defense. You have to try that much harder on defense if your offense isn't working the way you'd like it to. Find a way to leave your mark on the game. At the end of the day, if you can say you gave 100% for the team, your teammates will respect you. They will appreciate all of your hard work and it may even inspire them to work harder. A cohesive team beats a talented team 9 times out of 10. Just don't get upset with that one loss. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps you become a better team player.

Tim Lincecum throws first career no-hitter.

Something happened today at PetCo Park in San Diego tonight. Something special. Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants threw his first career no-hitter. With Giants and Padres fans on his side in the late innings, Timmy coasted his way to his no-hitter on a fly-ball to left field. Of course this would not have been possible without a few key plays from his defense.  Not to discredit his impressive performance. Timmy has won two World Series', and has finally separates himself as one of the few to actually accomplish this. It's not as great as a perfect game, but it is still quite an accomplishment. Not many pitchers can say they pitched a no-hitter. Now he can. In addition to the no hitter, he also recorded a season high 14 strikeouts. As well as a career high 148 pitches. This game may be just enough to kick the 2-time Cy Young award winner out of his slump. The 9-0 victory proved how dominant Lincecum can be when he's at the top of his game. Let's just hope for the Giants' sake this extraordinary play continues.

I love Pokémon, but one thing really ticks me of... Genwunners. They say things like, "I hate new poke they are so unoriginal." How is a Magikarp original. I mean I think cotton candy and ice cream make more sense then a pile of sludge(Muk). I think we can all agree on one thing...

Don’t hate me but I hate Divergent

Don’t hate me but I hate Divergent  
        Divergent by Veronica Ruth is certainly getting attention these days. It’s being hailed as the next Hunger Games. It has a movie coming out in 2014 with such talents as golden globe nominated Shailene Woodley. (See picture below)

It has 123,820 five star reviews on good read. It seems like everyone loves Divergent. Everyone but me.  
         Divergent is set in a dystopian society where every sixteen year old is divided in to a different fraction based on virtues. The fractions are Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent).  

          The main character Tris comes from Anegation but has a hard time conforming to their selfless and giving life style.  She finds herself drawn to the reckless, train hopping, and black wearing Dauntless. She feels as if she has to stay with her family though.  Tris knows it would devastate her parents if she left them.

The beginning is really interesting I loved Tris’s character.  She came from an Amish-like background. I found it funny watching her unfittingly bow her head down to the ground and forgot to give up bus seats. You could really see her internal struggle. She doesn’t belong in abnegation, but if she left she would ruin her family ties.  

Tris then takes the quiz that is supposed to tell her what fraction to join. Tris hallucinates all these different scenarios and the choices she makes affects the outcome of the quiz. Unfortunately Tris is a special snowflake ( which means the M.C is more special than the rest, shocker!) a divergent who could go into multiple fractions. Being a divergent is also very dangerous, so Trish must tell no one.  More confused than ever as she could be both Dauntless or Abnegation, Tris follows her heart  and ....joins Dauntless.  Sadly Dauntless is hard to get in to . Only half of the people trying to join  will.  If Tris fails she will end up  becoming fractionless ( a hobo). Tris has to learn to fight and win battles, overcome her fears and deal with "hot" mean love interests teachers like Four.  She also makes new friends in Will, Christina, and Albert.
           The middle of the book was really great it. It held a lot of plot .It was interesting seeing Tris struggle to be good at fighting. Most M.Cs are naturally gifted so I enjoyed watching her learn. Tris also shows how recklessly and stupidly brave she is in the section, the girl is willing to have daggers thrown at her head and jump off buildings for goodness sake.

   Tris’s friends were despicable.  Trish was their favorite person when she was weak. They all loved to pet her on the head and introduce her to hamburgers. They didn’t like Tris so much when she was competition. As soon as she got good Albert betrayed her and Christina and Will got all jealous and bratty. Personally I found the bit character Uriah a lot better friend. He was cool with Tris when she was a loser and when she was scoring the metaphorical winning goal. Uriah …


Thanks to Tris’s special divergent powers, she was really good at the fear controlling portion of the tests she has to take to join Dauntless. After working really hard, almost dying, and being special Tris places first in the tests and gets to join dauntless. I love a good underdog tale So I was thrilled for her! She did it!  It was such a great book! This is the perfect  way to end it … wait what? There are a hundred pages left? How can that be? Tris did everything, already. What could be left?

 This is what made me hate divergent.  This is what  ruined what could have been a great novel. This is what should have waited to happen in the next book.  Thanks to the fact Veronica Ruth decided to squeeze in an insane twist in the last one hundred pages I will never be a fan of divergent. 
 Suddenly the day after Tris finally succeeds at her 400 paged goal the Erudite (smart guys) brainwash all the Dauntless to be their killing zombies and attack the Abnegation. Tris parents die protecting her sorta half way connecting the family again. Too bad their now dead. Tris then ends up fractionless anyways. After all the tests she did in Dauntless to prevent this from happening, Tris is  still a hobo.


The twist ruined the book. It tried to cram in three hundred pages worth of plot in the last one hundred pages. There was too much going on to make it look polished or professional.  It was all way to rushed.  In fact  it made the whole novel look stupid. You don’t change the main point of the book. The whole story was leading to see if Trish would get in to Dauntless.  Sure, there was weird stuff going on in the Erudite area but that just seemed like foreshadowing for the sequel. Yes, their were other fractions hating on Abnegation but it seemed like that was to give Four a backstory.  The mindless zombies attacking people thing just was  just peculiar.  It came up way to suddenly and made little sense. I’d really love to know, Veronica Ruth why make a great story but then have ruin it? How come the climax can't  fit in with the beginning or middle?

All in all I give divergent one top hat out of five

     What are your opinions on divergent? Are you a fan?  Did you like the ending?  What do you think I should review next?

Fare thee well ~Milady

Why the Heat won't 3-peat

The Miami Heat have had it relatively easy since gathering the big three, but have still managed to nearly lose in every series but the OKC series. They lost to Dallas, but I suppose we can chalk that up as overconfidence and underestimating a very solid Mavericks squad led by a future hall of famer in Dirk Nowitzki. They brought it to a young Thunder team, but when they nearly lost to the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals and again to the Spurs in the NBA finals, their dominance was questioned as it should be. With an aging D-Wade and no true center, it's no wonder they had trouble with teams that were strong in the paint. Unless they somehow manage to pick up a center in free agency, I don't see the Heat winning another championship. The West has improved dramatically, with teams like the Warriors making great decisions and picking up Andre Iguodala, it only adds to what was already a great team. Plus the Rockets managed to sign Dwight Howard. The Rockets will immediately be considered a title contender with an all star acquisition like that. In addition to what's already been improved, you still have those teams that have always been an annual threat to win it all like the Spurs, and I guess you have to throw the Lakers in that category, simply due to the fact that they have Kobe. Then you have the Clippers that have a new Head Coach in Doc Rivers, who always gets the most out of his teams. The West is looking great, and if I were LeBron James, I'd be looking into joining them after the Heat don't win the title next year. I'd go into the depth of the East, but I'm going to save that for another time. Who do you think will win it all next year? Post in the comments below. I might feature your arguments in my next rant about the NBA.

Replacement Review

Replacement Review

                The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff is a sometimes dark sometimes heartwarming tale of a dead little boy who is trying to find his place in the world.

                Mackie is a replacement (which is the dead’s version of changeling). He wasn’t born like most humans.  He was a cast off from the world of the dead, left in a crib so a family wouldn’t notice their real child was missing. Most replacements die fairly quickly, after the ruse is no longer needed. Thanks, to the constant care and support of his big sister Emma, Mackie has managed to live sixteen years.  They haven’t been a breeze though. Ever since he was a babe Mackie’s Dad told him the tale of another replacement, named Kellan who lived years ago. It pretty much went like this “Kellan was a friendly guy. Kellon was good at fixing violins. Kellons was fair and honest. Yet that didn’t matter to the town. The town blamed him for the missing children in the depression. Kellon was then murdered.”

           Great bedtime story Dad. Real heartwarming.  You raise your children right. Yet it’s no wonder Mackie wouldn’t trust anyone! It was drilled I his brain. Still maybe it was necessary precaution, there something weird about Gentry. Every seven years, a child goes missing and the replacement dies leaving behind a heart -broken family.  Tate, a classmate of Mackie’s, own little sister's funeral was in a few days. Instead of being sad though Tate was infuriated. She saw thorough the ruse no else would admit was there and demanded Mackie see it too.   

This leads Mackie to visit the two groups of the undead.  Sharped- tooth Morrigan’s outcasts  who mostly meant no harm and the terrifyingly vicious and power hungry Lady and her groupies who craved blood and sacrificed children to keep the town running strong. Mackie although part of the living-dead himself didn’t agree with their ways. He hatched a plan. One that would get Tate’s sister back no matter the cost.
 I loved Mackie.  He was a really nice guy. Although Mackie came across as a jerk to other characters sometimes it was mostly through misunderstandings. Mackie really did always want to do the right thing.  Tate was kickass.  Not only was she best big sister ever,  but she brought an iron crowbar to the graveyard and  went toe to toe to the with the Cuter who kept beating the boys senseless. Mackie and Tate's  romance was cute but less than necessary.
           Lady was would she appeared to be a  psycho. Her predictability left me with a level of comfort unlike her sister Morrigan.  Little Morrigan who looked like a six year old yet talked like an age forty English professor. That alone confuses me. Seemingly, she was the good guy, the one you could trust.  Yet if that was so what was Morrigan doing sending her little rotting dead girls to rough up Mackie’s sister Emma. Also it was really creepy how she stabbed her sister without  regret after stating multiple times she loved Lady. Mackie needs to watch out, in the very end Morrigan said she loved him and as you already seen her love goes hand and hand with the knife 
     The good: The character interactions where a lot of fun, and the author did a good job developing the M.C s and side charies.  

      The bad: The mythology was underexplored, which was sad as it was really interesting. Also it isn’t appropriate for younger teens, there was a lot of language and Tate and Mackie’s romance was kind of inappropriate for kids at times.
my ratings:




(Three top hats out of 5, a good read but not breath taking)

Why Americans don't like Soccer.

Ok, so it's been bugging me that more Americans don't embrace Soccer. To figure it out I have to think of the reasons an American wouldn't like Soccer. It seems most "mainstream" Americans don't have the time nor the patience to watch a sport that isn't fast paced and action packed. They need to watch a sport like basketball or Football where something is always happening. They don't understand the necessity of patience with a sport like Soccer. It takes time to develop an attack that may produce a goal. Time that most Americans aren't willing to spend waiting for a goal. Another reason an American might not watch Soccer is some Americans have deluded themselves into thinking it's "gay" to watch or play Soccer. There is no way to respond to that kindly. Soccer is the most played sport in the world. It doesn't surprise me that Americans won't watch it. Because much like the U.S. and the Metric system, which the rest of the world uses, we just won't follow the rest of the world. We always have to do something entirely different. I.e. take what the world knows as football, call it Soccer, and invent our own football. Which is completely different than what the rest of the world would think if you mentioned football. I guess when you think about it, the U.S. are the "hipsters" of the world. Sorry if this rant has drifted in another direction. It happens.
