The mind of a four-year old is difficult to process, and every parent wants to know what is happening inside their mind whenever they do the ridiculous activities that kids are known for. Young children contain an amount of energy that knows no bounds.

To waste a child’s almost-limitless amount of energy, many parents decide to include their child in sports activities that includes a lot physical exercise. Children who play sports tend to have a certain lack of focus, compared to an older adolescence.

As a result of children giving little-to-zero dedication toward their sport, coaches and parents often wonder what is contributing to the mindset of their child’s actions.

While some parents question the actions of their unattentive children, other parents are in the works to figure out what is happening in their young brains.  Well, to give a humorous answer to this scenario, coach Jeremy Rupke from Ontario, Canada attached a mic to his four-year-old son, Mason, during a practice for the Timbits minor hockey team in order to hear exactly what is happening in his son’s mind during practice.

The mic would pick up and record any commentary that Mason would speak.

After Mason was recorded during the practice, Rupke decided to post his experience online with the rest of the world. Following the recent sharing of the recording from many big-name Twitter accounts, such as JJ Watt; player for Houston Texans and ESPN, the video containing Rupke’s recordings of his son soon became viral across social media. What went on out on the ice was a fun way to observe how young children think in correlation to how they perform on and off their field of play.

View the video below for the full commentary from Mason, as recorded by his father.

This 2019 Super Bowl ended with the New England Patriots defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in a very close game. In the first quarter, it was not a very exciting game as the football was just being kicked back and forth. Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, 41, first throwing pass was intercepted by the Rams which was very shocking and was a very rare mistake that Brady would make. The Patriots scored a field goal in the second period making it 3-0 in a very close game from the first until the end of the game.

The halftime show then came on after the first and second quarter. Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi performed the halftime show and the halftime show was really weak according to sports websites and news stations such as Fox News and Fox Sports. This was the lowest halftime viewership since the 2009 Super Bowl.

The third quarter started and ended with the Rams tying the game 3-3 with a field goal. This was the first time in Super Bowl history that both teams had not scored a touchdown through three quarters. The game was basically a kicking game as the ball was just being kicked around and no one being able to score.

In the fourth quarter, the Patriots won the Super Bowl with a final score of 13-3. This was the lowest scored Super Bowl game in Super Bowl history. After the game, Julian Edelman was named Super Bowl MVP. Edelman, 32, then celebrated the win at the Boston Bruins hockey game by dropping the puck in a face-off before the Bruins game started and spiked the puck down just like a football.

The Patriots have now won six Super Bowl’s. They won in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2015, 2017, and now in 2019. The Patriots continue their dominance led by star quarterback, Tom Brady, who possibly will go down as one of the best quarterbacks of all time.

Super Bowl 53 will take place on Sunday Feb. 2, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA. with the defending champions, the New England Patriots, taking on the Los Angeles Rams. Patriots legendary quarterback, Tom Brady, 41, will go for his fifth Super Bowl championship ring. Brady has been named Super Bowl Most Valuable Player four times over his career. Brady will look to defeat Rams quarterback, Jared Goff, 24, who is playing in the Super Bowl for the first time in his young career. The Patriots punched their ticket to the Super Bowl this year by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2019 AFC championship game with a final score of 37-31 in overtime.

The Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints in a very controversial game towards the ending, with a final score of 26-23. The controversy surrounding the game was that the call was pass interference when he clearly pushed him out of bounds when he was just about to catch the ball. This led to several stars such as LeBron James, Tony Dungy, and Kurt Warner, commentating about the call and that there was no penalty. The outcome of the game was the same result, however, as the Rams still got their ticket to the Super Bowl.

As a journalist, I must focus on the statistics and who has the advantage of winning the Super Bowl. In my opinion, I believe that the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl, but it will be a very close game, with the score being tight. The advantage right now goes towards the Patriots and that’s why I think they will win the fifty-third Super Bowl and continue to be on top of the NFL for years to come.

Tampa Bay, Fla.–Pro-wrestlers, Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson, and Nick Jackson, have established their own wrestling promotion based out of Jacksonville, Fla. named All Elite Wrestling. They named it after their own wrestling faction, “The Elite,” along with their friends who are also star wrestlers.

The Elite is led by Kenny Omega and consists of: Cody Rhodes, the son of “The American Dream;” Dusty Rhodes, Matt and Nick Jackson, who go under the tag team name of “The Young Bucks”; Adam Page; and, British wrestler Marty Scurll. On January 1, 2019, The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Adam Page announced on their YouTube channel, “Being the Elite,” they would start All Elite Wrestling. They would base the headquarters out of Jacksonville, Fla. after Jacksonville Jaguars owner, Shahid Khan, agreed to a deal to buy the promotion and make happen.

On January 8, 2019, President of All Elite Wrestling, Tony Khan, held a rally for their first pay-per-view as a company entitled “Double or Nothing.” This was the second pay-per-view made by The Elite. Back in September of 2018, they held a pay-per-view called All In in Chicago, IL. Once tickets went on sale, they sold out in less than a minute and sold 10,000 tickets. This is what led to Cody and The Young Bucks starting their own promotion. Their tagline is “To change the wrestling world.”

Double or Nothing will take place on May 25, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Adam Page, Cody Rhodes, and The Young Bucks are the only superstars in The Elite faction to have a current contract with All Elite Wrestling, while Omega and Scurll do not. Former WWE star, Chris Jericho, said at the rally in Jacksonville, Fla, “we’re not here to just change the world, we’re here to change the universe.”

The future of pro wrestling could become a big thing in Florida from this new company called All Elite Wrestling.

Tampa Bay, Fla.–The Tampa Bay Lightning remain the top team in the National Hockey League with a record of 36 wins, nine losses, and two overtime or shootout losses in 47 games throughout the season. According to ESPN.com, the Lightning are the favorite from the Eastern Conference to go to the Stanley Cup Finals. If the Lightning go to the Stanley Cup Finals, they will face off either the Nashville Predators or the Winnipeg Jets who represent the Western Conference.

The Lightning are led by the NHL point leader Nikita Kucherov, 25, who has twenty-two goals and fifty-three assists putting him in the player lead with 75 points as of Jan. 16, 2019. With the Lightning losing star goalie, Andrei Vasilevskiy, 24, the team was led by their back-up goalie, Louis Domingue, 26, who played from Nov. 13 to Dec. 10 and won eleven games out of the fourteen he played. Vasilevskiy made his return on Dec. 13, 2018, in which he won against the Toronto Maple Leafs and only allowed one goal.

On Jan. 2, 2019, the NHL announced the 2019 All-Star game rosters. Lightning Captain, Steven Stamkos, and Lightning player, Nikita Kucherov, were been selected to represent the Lightning. On Jan. 5, 2019, the coaches for the All-Star game were announced. Lightning coach, Jon Cooper, was selected to coach the Atlantic Division. On Jan. 8, 2019, Lightning goalie, Andrei Vasilevskiy, was named to the roster as a replacement for Montreal Canadians goalie, Carey Price. Unfortunately, the Lightning’s top goal scorer, Brayden Point, was not selected after being a candidate for the NHL All-Star game “Last men in” vote. Point, 22, has twenty-nine goals through the season so far with thirty-two assists totaling 61 points.

The Lightning are doing very well as a team with some of the top scorers in the league. Despite some injuries, the Lightning have bounced back and are on top of the NHL.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star Leati Joseph Anoa’i, better known under his ring name, Roman Reigns, has been diagnosed with Leukemia as it has come back for the second time. Reigns stated on WWE’s television show, Monday Night Raw, that he had been battling Leukemia for eleven years and unfortunately, it has come back. At the time, Reigns was the world champion on the Raw brand as he was the Universal champion. He tried to be a fighting champion, but with his Leukemia coming back, he was forced to relinquish the Universal title.

Reigns had many major accomplishments throughout his career in WWE, as he won the 2015 thirty-man Royal Rumble match, he was a three-time WWE champion, a WWE Intercontinental champion, a WWE United States champion, a WWE tag team champion with his Shield teammate, Seth Rollins, and a Universal champion. He made his debut on November 18, 2012 at the WWE Survivor Series Pay-Per-View with his Shield teammates, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, in which they attacked former WWE superstar, Ryback.

On June 2, 2014, the Shield confronted Randy Orton and COO of the company, Triple H, until Seth Rollins turned on Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. This led to Rollins winning the 2014 Money in the Bank Ladder Match. At WrestleMania 31, in the main event, it was Roman Reigns challenging WWE champion Brock Lesnar. Then during the match, Rollins seized the opportunity and cashed in his Money in the Bank contract and pined Reigns to win the title. Later that year, Rollins suffered a legitimate knee injury which took him out of action until May of 2016.

At WrestleMania 32, Roman Reigns won the WWE title by defeating Triple H. At Survivor Series 2016, the Shield briefly reunited as they hit their signature move, the triple powerbomb, ripping straight through an announcer’s desk onto opponent AJ Styles.

On October 9, 2017 the Shield fully reunited taking out the Miz, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. Then Ambrose suffered an elbow injury and was out of action for almost a year.

On Monday Night Raw on August 20, 2018, the Shield returned to help Roman Reigns and prevented Braun Strowman from cashing in his Money in the Bank contract and on October 22, 2018, Reigns had announced he was diagnosed with leukemia for the second time. Later in the night, Rollins and Ambrose challenged Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler for the Raw tag team titles dedicating the match to Roman Reigns. Rollins and Ambrose would go on to win the Raw tag team titles and then out of nowhere, Dean Ambrose turned his back on Seth Rollins with the Shield breaking up as a group once and for all.

This dominant trio in WWE history might go down as one of the best factions in wrestling history. Reign will be missed from the WWE.

Miami, Fla.–The Miami Heat are not off to a good start in the 2018-19 season. They have a record of one win and two losses, and are over two games behind in the whole Eastern Conference.

Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat

The Heat lost their first game of the season to the Orlando Magic 104-101. In their second game of the season, they barely beat the Washington Wizards 113-112. On October 20, 2018, they lost their third game of the season to the Charlotte Hornets 113-112, which was a very close game for the Heat once again.

Star player for the Heat, Dwayne Wade, scored nine points in the first game and also in the second game. He then bounced back against the Hornets with twenty one points in the third game with three assists and three rebounds. This season he is averaging thirteen points a game throughout the first three games of the season. Throughout Wade’s career from 2003 to this day, he has averaged twenty two and a half points with the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Heat hope to be led by Wade as they continue into the season.

Tampa Bay, Fla.–The Tampa Bay Lightning are off to a hot start into the 2018-19 National Hockey League season as they have a record of four wins, one loss, and one overtime loss. In their home opener on October 6, 2018, they defeated the Florida Panthers 2-1 in a shootout. They fell behind in their second game of the season as they lost to the Vancouver Canucks 4-1 when they let three goals in the last ten minutes of the third period.

The Lightning struck back with a huge win over the Columbus Blue Jackets defeating the Blue Jackets 8-2. The Lightning had rearranged their lines, moving Yanni Gourde and Brayden Point to the first line with Captain Steven Stamkos. This led to the reunion of the triplet’s line, a line consisting of Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, and Nikita Kucherov who are a dominant line throughout the whole NHL.

They had their offense going once again with a win against the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 with Tyler Johnson getting the hat trick. A hat trick in hockey is whenever a player scores three goals in one game and then fans throw their hats onto the ice.

The Lightning kept striking with another win over the Detroit Red Wings 3-1. They were so close to winning their sixth game of the season but took an overtime loss against the Minnesota Wild 5-4. They came right back and destroyed the Chicago Blackhawks 6-3 with a record of shots in the second period with a total of thirty three shots. They totaled fifty four shots in the game.

The Lightning play Vegas’ Golden Knights tonight, Oct. 26.

Tampa Bay, Fla.–The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired a new minor league hockey team from the Toronto Maple Leafs and this team will play in Orlando, Fla. as the Orlando Solar Bears.

In May 2017, the owners of the Orlando Magic basketball team agreed to purchase the Maple Leafs East Coast Hockey League’s hockey team. The Maple Leafs had ended their five season affiliation with the Solar Bears. Toronto had agreed to expand their minor league affiliate teams with a new team called the Newfoundland Growlers.

In 2018, the Tampa Bay Lightning agreed with the Orlando Magic owners to purchase the Solar Bears to a three-year agreement. Now the Lightning have two minor league affiliates, the Syracuse Crunch and the Orlando Solar Bears.

The Orlando Solar Bears now play at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. as the team becomes Orlando’s third hockey team in Orlando’s history. The head coach of the Solar Bears is Drake Berehowsky, with the owner of the team being RDV Sports, Inc. This puts the Tampa Bay Lightning in good hands with their minor league affiliates.

Stephen M. Dowell/Orlando Sentinel
The Solar Bears’ Colby McAuley shoots during the team’s game against the South Carolina Stingrays Tuesday night at Amway Center.

On October 16, 2018, the Solar Bears lost a game to the South Carolina Stingrays, though it was a close game with the final score being 6-5. The goals for the Solar Bears came from Nolan Valleau, who scored two goals. The others came from Brady Shaw, Colby McAuley and Hunter Fejes. The Solar Bears almost pulled it off. The Solar Bears record is one win so far with two losses.

Plant City, Fla.–Along with football season comes the cheerleaders. Making it on the cheer team can be difficult and most definitely nerve wrecking.

Although everyone may think high school cheerleading is just cheering on the football players, it can be so much more. Mya Hubbard, a freshman on the varsity cheer team, says “cheer takes a lot of practice and effort, we have to be able to flip in the air and do stunts ,which is harder then people think.”

Durant’s varsity cheer team practices three to four times a as well as games on Friday nights. At their practices, they prepare new stunts and cheers for the upcoming competition season. The 2017-2018 cheer team won their regional competition as this years team is planning to repeating the win as well as win many more competitions to come. Making it to every practice and doing their best to girls work hard to plan their routine and execute it correctly. Putting the team first each individual must do their job on the team.

Learning the routine step-by-step, takes time. Coaches are under a lot of stress planning it and then being able to reveal it to the team. For competitions, the coaches of Durant must create a sequence of stunts and tumbling that generates enough points and difficulty to win. A performance that pleases the judges expectations.

On top of creating the routine cheerleaders must perform their routine. Competing in front of a crowd is scary there’s a lot going on around them. The girls must stay calm and do the routine they had learn inside and out in front of the judges.

“The goal is to hit everything perfectly and have a lot of energy during it so we can hopefully win in the end,” Avery Surrency, a sophomore on the varsity cheer team explains.

“The thrill of winning in working with everyone is the best feeling even if we don’t come in first we had tons of fun,” Katie Rentz, a sophomore, adds.

Being on a team comes experiences and new social opportunities that the girls seem to love.

Plant City, Fla.–The Durant Cougars hockey team is aiming high for a playoff spot in the Lightning High School Hockey League, starting this season strong with high goal scoring, great defense, and solid goal tending. Durant has a current record of five wins and two losses.

The team is led by Captain, Dylan Southern, a senior who goes to Brandon High School. The Durant team can choose players from different schools that are in their boundary zones to play on their team. Students from Brandon High School, Tampa Catholic High School, Strawberry Crest High School, Grace Christian Academy, Plant City High School, Pivot Academy, and Durant High School all make up the Durant High School hockey team. The team’s home rink is Brandon Ice Sports Forum in Brandon, Fla.

Goaltender Dillon Garasz started game one of the season for Durant with a 4-0 shutout against Plant High School. Garasz was selected as the number one goalie in the South Eastern United States select 15 division. He attended the USA Hockey South East Regional Development Camp for elite players last May, and then attended the USA Hockey National Development Camp for top-tier players in July. Durant is hoping Garasz will help the team get to a playoff spot this season.

Game two of Durant’s season was a hard-fought game for Durant as they took a loss against Freedom High School, 6-4. Later that day, Durant played their third game of the season against Bloomingdale High School in which Durant won 5-2.

Game four was a heated division rivalry game with Durant facing defending state champions, Manatee High School. The game was played well by Durant, but the team suffered major penalties that led to the suspension of a player on the team. Durant lost the game, 7-4.

Durant struck right back the next week as they defeated Berkley High School with another shutout, winning 3-0. As Durant headed into their next game with confidence, they defeated Jenkins High School 10-0 in a huge shutout. Despite the setbacks of additional player penalties and suspensions, Durant didn’t hesitate to win their next game against West Manatee, 5-4.

Durant has had a brilliant start to its 2018-19 season. Playoffs are in the spring, and Durant is hoping to be a threat to secure a spot in the playoffs this season.
