A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

NBA Documentary 'Last Dance' Premiered Earlier Tonight

A documentary which chronicles the unprecedented success of the Chicago Bulls during Michael Jordan's reign of dominating the courts was presented earlier this evening in two separate installments. Originally scheduled to air during the 2020 NBA Finals in June, ESPN made the decision to push the date ahead as a result of the sports season being put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A documentary which chronicles the unprecedented success of the Chicago Bulls during Michael Jordan's reign of dominating the courts was presented earlier this evening in two separate installments.

With all of the star figures set to be free agents in '97, Jordan famously dubbed that propitious year as the 'Last Dance.' Indeed, the Chicago Bulls went on to defeat the Utah Jazz in the 1998 NBA Finals for the sixth title in eight seasons. The perfect end to an incredible year for basketball fans.

But as with all stories of fame and success, when you scratch the surface, you often discover a far more interesting tale lying just beneath. The documentary 'A Last Dance,' is one to set the record straight regarding one of the most beloved sports figures of all-time. It feels as though you could find Jordan's image directly adjacent to the dictionary entry for basketball, such was his impact on the sport.

However, what emotional and psychological tolls did the game take on Jordan during his storied career in the NBA? The man, the legend, the player... all singularly facing the pressure of stardom and the intense scrutiny of the public eye.

I've never been a fan of sports; apart from martial arts. But Michael Jordan was an icon recognizable to any child who grew up in the 90's, and I even spent countless months spanning more than one winter wrapped up in a Bulls jacket gifted to me by my big brother.

Will I be watching the documentary? No. Some part of me will always attach some significance to that moment in time when the Bulls dominated the NBA, but I've never been able to espouse any fondness for the sport. All I know is that for those who are avid fans, it's a phenomenal bonding experience. I just hope that the documentary does the former NBA star justice...

That's all for today! Sports fall well-beyond my area of expertise, but I recognize how important this documentary will be for some, and thought I'd do my part by including it on my site. Have a safe and wonderful week!
