(This post was heavily inspired by NFL Films’ “Hit, Miss, or Meh” video covering the 2009 NFL Draft. I altered it slightly to suit my fancy.)
I began watching the NFL in 2011, after Super Bowl XLV sowed the seeds of football fanaticism within my soul. Even so, my experiences in 2011 were limited to only a few games later on in the season, and nothing substantial during the preceding offseason. It wasn’t until 2012 that I began following the sport even when it was off—the scouting combine, free agency, the draft, and whatever else. For this reason, I wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on the players of the first round in the first NFL Draft I’ve ever seen unfold live as a young and starving enthusiast.

Goku will never make it into Super Smash Bros. That’s what I always told myself around the time Super Smash Bros. Brawl came out and the pleas from Dragon Ball Z fans became relevant upon the addition of Snake as a guest character. Why the hell would they add Goku? He’s not even a video game character. On top of that, Super Smash Bros. is a celebration of Nintendo characters. Snake is only a one-time guest. You stupid idiots. Goku will never be in the game. Ever. Ever.
Fast forward ten-plus years. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has opened the floodgates to inviting a seemingly endless list of participants through their DLC additions. Their most recent addition is Joker from Persona 5, who became playable two days ago. Joker from Persona 5? Well… that’s interesting. Continue reading “Goku in Smash Bros. No Longer Seems so Far-Fetched”→
The Last Jedi was a very flawed film. Multiple film critics, including popular Youtube group RedLetterMedia, have dragged it across the ground for its incessant amount of logical leaps, goofy theatrics, and horribly uneven tone. All of these are issues I, too, found to be distracting when I watched the film. With all of these swirling opinions surrounding the film, which includes a harsh distaste from the general populace of Star Wars fanatics of the past, I went into my second viewing rather pessimistic that I would enjoy it as much as I did the first time.
Yesterday, I started playing Sonic Adventure again, the first time since roughly 2016. The last time I played the game, I came to the conclusion that it was bad, stacked with the evidence pointed out by various peers and Youtube critics. Playing it again now, it is still pretty bad. Why is this important? Because I still had the urge to play it. Knowing full well the experience is overall unremarkable, my desire to revisit the story of Sonic Adventure burned until I finally satiated it with yet another playthrough.

I’m reading a lot of ongoing manga. According to MyAnimeList, I’m reading ten ongoing manga, with three more that have completed, but are still being scanlated. Truth be told, while my anime-watching days are at a much more peaceful state compared to years past, manga has been something I’ve kept up on regularly. Some of these manga I enjoy so much that I feel the need to write on them while they’re still in production, like with when I wrote a piece on Komi-san. (Wow, has it really been over a year since I wrote that?!) Today’s topic is on a manga that, all things considered, might trump my adoration for the former.

I was casually browsing Youtube last night, looking for some mindless entertainment to pass the time. While productivity is always good, sometimes there’s no better alternative than to give the brain a full-blown rest. On a whim, I decide to check the NFL Films Youtube account, and lo and behold, they uploaded a new Top 10 video since the last time I checked. Mindless entertainment no more: I was partaking in NFL history. Whether or not this constitutes as “productive” is up to the individual to decide.
