in Sports by

On Feb. 3, the New England Patriots faced off against the Los Angeles Rams in a very leisurely moving and low scoring Super Bowl located in Atlanta. Many fans were irritated due to the game’s mundane nature—not to mention the thousands of dollars spent per person—although, towards the end, the energy heightened after Patriots running back Sony Michel scored the first touchdown in the fourth quarter to ultimately close the deal and hand the Patriots their sixth Super Bowl win.

This event was not limited to Patriots or Rams fans. Supporters from all over the nation gathered in the city of Atlanta, including devotees who belonged to various NFL teams and a sufficient amount of celebrities ranging from Danny DeVito to Atlanta native, Ludacris. With every substantial event that invites thousands of people to a singular venue, it benefits the hosting city. Atlanta will acquire benefits from the location of the Mercedes-Benz stadium and transportation such as MARTA and Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. Additionally, other benefits are the lodging and food expenses. The financial investments and loss coming from fans and viewers translates to a major gain for Atlanta.

Women’s March 2019: Standing Stronger Together

in Features/News by

A widespread event over the past couple of years with an expression of reform, unity and standing up against society in a way to protect the civil rights and sanctity of the people has been the Women’s March.

Amid controversy in the 2019 Women’s March, followers of the original group accused them of being biased or more favoring of white women; the group is believed to be ignoring real issues that others with diverse backgrounds struggle with on a daily basis.

By a Slim Margin, the Tide Defeats the Bulldogs Once Again

in Sports by

Hearts pounding. Nerves rattling. Football is just a game, right? Wrong. Tears, confetti, fans fleeing and fists in the air. One is a champion and one fell to defeat. This game was not an ordinary conference championship game. It meant more. There was history between the coaches, the teams and the fan bases. On the field, battling it out to decide the others fate, and the victorious champions of the SEC are the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Money flying in the air, did someone just waste it or spend it wisely?  Alabama and Georgia were back at it again. As for Georgia fans that phrase leaves a bitter taste in their mouths.
