Use Muscle To Defeat Your Problem Areas

Sometimes, people will feel like their bodies are not proportionate. Women are more susceptible to this idea than men are. You will proceed to working out and focus on that part to shape it to size; however, no matter what you do, it is just a myth. Specifically burning fat in some areas of the body – the belly, the love handles, the thighs, etc. is a highly exaggerated thing in...

Missing Jusuf Nurkić Is Huge, But Blazers Can’t Mortgage Future In Series Vs. Warriors

The passionate fans of Rip City won’t say it, but I will: The Golden State Warriors are a much better basketball team than the Portland Trail Blazers, with or without Jusuf Nurkic. That’s not a knock on this Portland Trail Blazers team, despite only sneaking into the playoffs as a nail-bitter eight seed. Instead, it’s a testament to this historically great Golden State Warriors...

Haniger Leads The Way In WAY Too Early AL Rookie Of The Year Race

Is it way too early in the Major League Baseball season to be handing out awards such as most valuable player, defensive player of the year, rookie of the year and others? Obviously, it is – but it wouldn’t be any fun if we didn’t forecast our selections way too soon. Among the post-season awards handed out every season, the one I want to focus on where I think the Seattle...

The Argument Over Fighting In Hockey

I was recently lamenting the Portland Winterhawks season coming to an ignoble end at the hands of the Kelowna Rockets, when an acquaintance shook his head disapprovingly and said, “I hate hockey. It’s just too much needless violence. My son went to one Winterhawks game, and all he remembered was the big fight.” I was diplomatic and non-committal, until he followed this up with...

Can The Portland Trail Blazers Avoid Getting Swept?

For the first 3 quarters of the series, the Portland Trail Blazers looked like a team ready to compete with the best team in the league. Since then, it’s been business as usual for the Golden State Warriors.  The results have been what everyone expected with the Warriors leading the series 2-0. As the series heads back to Portland, can the Blazers avoid a sweep? It was more evident...

Three First Round Portland Trail Blazers Overreactions

As of March 1st, the Blazers had a record of 24-35 and were looking at another lottery pick. After finishing the season with a 17-6 record, the Blazers found themselves in the Western Conference Playoffs. When the Blazers clinched their playoff berth I...

5 Hot Takes Following Portland Trail Blazers Early Playoff Showing vs. Golden State Warriors

Hoo boy… It’s getting ugly, Rip City. Game 1 left the Portland Trail Blazers with a lot of confidence despite a 12-point loss. After all, CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard went OFF; the Golden State Warriors needed a ridiculous performance from its third-best player in Draymond Green; and entering Game 2, the Dubs were actually without Kevin Durant. You heard that right: The Blazers...

Kelowna Rockets Ground Portland Winterhawks To Advance To Western Conference Final

Thought of as a rebuilding year for the Portland Winterhawks, not much stock was put into the team especially when Mike Johnston went with an all youth squad to start the season. Only Keegan Iverson was an overage player on the team and the team went even younger between the pipes with the trade of nineteen-year-old Michael Bullion to Medicine Hat Tigers for Shane Farkas who is just...

Symptoms Of Dehydration

It’s important to drink water. Over 70% of our bodies are made up of water, and it’s necessary to keep us running. Whether you’re throwing back a bottle-full, or eating water-filled foods (ideally both), getting enough fluids in one way or another is essential for survival. The human body does a great job of regulating fluid levels. You pee when you have too much water, and...

Portland Trail Blazers Need To Embrace the Madness

You would be foolish to believe that the Portland Trail Blazers could win more than one game against the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the 2017 NBA playoffs. You would be cut off from the bar to say they could win more than two games. And, you would be certifiable crazy to predict they could win more than three games. Welcome to the world we live in! We, in fact, are...

The Kelowna Rockets Stymie The Portland Winterhawks, WHL Enacts Supplementary Discipline

The second round of the WHL playoffs has proven to be a perilous one for the Portland Winterhawks. The Kelowna Rockets have solidified their lead to 3-1 with a severely stinging victory in Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

How Evan Turner Can Flip The Script And Become Portland Trail Blazers’ Playoff X-Factor

Let’s just start off by acknowledging the obvious: Evan Turner has underwhelmed thus far for the Portland Trail Blazers. After signing a four-year, $70-million contract, which reportedly left Turner giddy, the seventh-year vet has statistically left Rip City with much to be desired. While his 9.1 points, 3.2 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game aren’t career lows, they’re awfully...

Digital Ages – How Virtual Reality Has Changed The Way Athletes Train

Let’s imagine that you’re a quarterback. You walk up to the front line, take a snap, and the defense swarms you like a pack of hungry predators. You look for your two best wide receivers, but the corners have them both covered. You look for your slot receiver -darn- he’s covered too. Just as you start looking for you running back to try and gain some type of yardage, you...

Relax, it’s only April, but the off day on Thursday came at a good time. The Mariners held a ceremony at Safeco field during the team’s free time to unveil a brand-new statue of arguably the...

Portland Winterhawks Get Stinged By Rockets

The Portland Winterhawks, knowing they had to at least split the two home games following two losses in Kelowna, used their memories from game two to start the trend. The physical play in game two was brought into game three as the Hawks pounded their way to a 4 to 2 win over the Rockets, but did so with a price. Evan Weinger, Caleb Jones, Joachim Blichfled and Sklyer McKenzie scored...

The Nike Hoop Summit 2017, Troy Brown, And A 1:1 With Danny Ainge

In my family, my siblings and parents breathe, sweat and dream of soccer. Needless to say, that when my interest in basketball came afloat, I was sort of the “ugly duck.” My brothers can attest to how important basketball is to me as they saw me from a very early age spend countless hours watching it on TV, playing it, or volunteering to keep the class’s basketball safe at...

Early Bullpen Blues For The Seattle Mariners

It’s safe to say that an early season grade for the Seattle Mariners bullpen would be in the D range, with some eager to assign an F. The operative word here though is “early.” While few expected such a rocky opening to the 2017 season, most were leery of the bullpen as it awaited the return of Shae Simmons and Steve Cishek. Those skeptics have been proven right, thus far,...
