Fizz’d Out

The Memphis Grizzlies have fired Head Coach David Fizdale. This fire is following an embarrassing lose to the Brooklyn Nets. This lost was part of an eight game losing streak the team was on. Although the team was playing badly, this firing surprising to me and much of the basketball world. The Grizzlies were trying to figure out the exact identity of the team, while still dealing with new pieces and injuries to key players. A coaching change will only complicate, an already struggling team. The rumored problems between Fiz and Marc be major. How do you think this change will turn out? Do you think the Grizz can turn the season around without Fitz?

Still On Top

Another week, another win for the Tennessee Titans. We beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20. All I can say is, shoutout to the defense!! They picked off Flacco twice and held four rushers to a total of 73 yards. Kevin Byard, the NFL leader in interceptions, continued his hot streak getting those two picks. Now to be honest, the offense was mediocre and continues to confuse me. First off, we didn’t do what we do best: RUN THE BALL. We were absent of a run game for the majority of the game and only totaled 71 yards. Secondly, the inconsistency on offense, between the 2 halves, have to be corrected. We played great first half, resulting in 16 points. However, we came out in the second half flat and only scored one TD. This is the opposite of what the Titans offense has been all year. We’ve been a slow, grinding offense that tires teams out first half and then break out second half. That’s the confusing part. We’re a one half team on offense and don’t know which half we’ll be clicking. Despite the trash second half, there were some bright spots for the offense: We finally improved in the redzone, Mariota/Davis/Walker/Cyprien all looked healthy, and the offense did look good on their final drive to put the game away. We have things to work on but we have enough to get the dub this week. This team is still promising. We have the talent and we’re putting it together. We’re still on top of the AFC South and we’re trending upwards. #TitanUp

What BBQin’ Really Is

I’m from Memphis so BBQ is ingrained in me, but I think many of us can agree, there’s nothing like some good meat hot off the grill. While BBQ is insanely delicious, it’s so much more than that. Grilling brings friends and families together. BBQs are often a place of laughter, memories, and Spades. Grilling is a way to express the love your have for the people you’re cooking for. Grilling is hard work. Have you ever stood over a hot grill for 7 hours on the 4th of July? Trust me, you’ll crash afterwards. Grilling is art. No two people grill their food the same way. BBQ isn’t just food. It is hard work, creativity, and love. It just happens to be mouth-watering also.
