Dede Westbrook Wins Skills Competition  after Taylor Celebrates Too Soon

The Allstar FBS challenge is in full swing. where possible NFL draft picks play numerous games to test their agility. In the PS4 hands completion, some hysterical shit happened and I feel like somebody has to address it.

The challenge is basically an obstacle course for future possible draft prospects, and in one heat, Trent Taylor beat the current first place time, and punted the football and just flexed on everyone, it was a super cool in the moment.

But then I started thinking, what if someone just straight up beat this time, and just savagely made fun of this guy. And it didn’t happen until wide receiver Dede Westbrook, an Oklahoma alumni, straight up beat his time by .6 seconds.

And he did it in the most salt bae way, no words needed, he just laughed his way to a possible better projection in the NFL draft

This is why college all star challenges before any draft is amazing  for the players. And as the draft comes closer, than we will see where these players will end up. 

But then I wa16.1 Trent Taylor 

How Converse new Commerical will help Revolutionize the Culture (Again)

It’s really hard to explain how over the course of pop culture, Converse has always  been a helping hand in changing the style of sneakers, but now Converse sponsored a new commercial on Facebook, and it was probably the most woke commercial I have ever saw in my life.

First off, the song that they picked, was so on point, Im really interested in why Gaika 3d, it fit perfectly.  “these are my cities, and these are my streets in a state of emergency) and you just see all of these celebrities diving deep and saying short sentences that are truly impacting.

It’s very fast pace, and it’s a wide variety from rapper Vince Staples, eleven from Stranger Things,  but then things got a little tricky for me. I started seeing people I did not even know, and then I got the message. Converse is basically making it as if this were you, we all have thoughts of how to be successful, but we just have to wait for the perfect opportunity.

We do not know when that is, but in the meantime you can work on yourself and branch off and experience everything, and enjoy the little things in life, just  knowing  that one day your day will come, but you’re going to take a couple Ls a long the way. 

But also another great thing about this video was the outfits everyone was wearing. Basically the message of not caring what other people are thinking about your clothing, and just wearing what you like. And if you see something you don’t understand, ask questions, and Being yourself ( I know this could be hard it’s rocket science) 

I really like how diverse social media is going, and who knows maybe those robots will come in handy in the near future. But in the meantime, I’m going to hit the gym, and then get some bomb Greek food. Have a go

You are the only one holding you back

Don’t you just love those days where everything is going smoothly, then wam! The old existential bug comes to town. And everything is processed under a microscope. 

This can be overwhelming, but do not worry, this can actually be the greatest thing that has ever happened to you. As you go through life, you may seem to question if you are the best version of yourself, and some days I just don’t even look in the mirror and just have this belief that I’m just an awkward kid, and then I just came waltz around like yup I’m toats a douche

But then I just suddenly look in the mirror and just laugh, because I am not the person I was even a year ago, I am a much more independent person, and I basically became obsessed with waking up early to go to the gym.

Be patient, the good times will come. You just have to experience a lot of shit until you start seeing your true self. And each day I just feel like I am getting closer and it’s pretty lit. So yeah keep going my friend, and just remember you aren’t as alone as you think you are.

D Why has Risen; Macchiato Szn is Upon us 

During my sophomore year of high school, there was some crazy music coming out on YouTube, some from the likes of KYLE (k.i.d) Futuristic,Sk4MC, and many other “Buffnerds” but not a lot of people really cared about them and were considered under ground, although the music wasn’t bad at all.

One person who was popping with them, D Why, or David Morris, The Macchiato Music sensation, was basically the G eazy of that group, before G blew up the way he did. Morris had a couple of great mixtapes like Don’t Flatter Yourself, he was dapper, yet showed off that he has bars and can be indie at the same time.

We’re in 2017 and KYLE,Futuristic, and various other Slept on artists are seeing “mainstream” exposure, yet D why hasn’t dropped a song since 2013.

It’s been almost 4 years since Morris has dropped music, but I never really cared, I just gave him time until I realsixed it’s been 4 years since I’ve heard a new D why song. This time is almost over, D why recently tweeted that he will be dropping new music this year. 

I’m going to keep waiting, whatever this man went through, and learned over the past 4 years, I feel like will be some amazing music. Hey D grab a macchiato with me some time man, Manhattan Macchiato season. 

Let the Players Rest; Why the NBA should focus on quality instead of quantity 

As you can see over the past few months, there has been a rising concern that all star caliber players are being rested by their coaches,  so that players can stay healthy to play the entire season while avoiding serious injuries over the course of the long NBA season.

The NBA schedule can be tough on a NBA player. I mean look at the players, these men are huge. And if those gigantic beasts are pushed day in and day out, their bodies can be proned to aches and pains, which can lead to surgeries, and even more time off.

So what do they do now? You have the fans, of say Lebron James, who might live in Washington, and will save money to be able to see their favorite players in their hometown,  and if they sit out because they are constantly playing back to back road games, and traveling while being in pain, while the fan feels betrayed for not seeing who they mesmerize for hours on the TV.

Everyone is not happy right now. If the best players are not on the floor, the ratings will go down. I think the NBA should push their franchises to  posting their active players, who they are going to play in the game on that day early in advance, so if you are a fan and see your favorite player is playing in your city, then the fan would know whether or not the team is going 110% that game, not recovering from a long road trip.

The MLB and NFL have had somesort of roster set ups in advance to the games. These players need rest, because it is a long season, and a player must be ready to compete to possibly June if you are a member of a title contending team. 

The fans want quality, but the amount of time the players have to rest, it’s almost impossible for that to exist. So the NBA Has to do some serious marketing reconstruction in order to keep the fans and players happy. As for everything in life, we should be focused on quality over quantity. No matter what. 

Let the Madness Begin; How This March might be the most mad of all time 

The NCAA March Madness tournament officially tipped off this Thursday afternoon, aka everyday life is put on hold for a week, of just non stop basketball. Where it is either being viewed at home comfortably, or in a lecture hall on your phone, there is a feeling of non stop suspense for 64 teams, and it is the most exhilarating feeling in the world.

  This year can go so many ways, their are so many good teams that are ranked 13th that have big talented athletes that want to win, and anything can happen, and we just have to watch it unfold.

I am predicting a lot of upsets, but I also do not want the teams that I want to win to get upset. The idea of making a perfect bracket is almost impossible, but everyone feels like they can do it. And then there are the stats wizards who analyze everything and predict of a numbers instead of bias which can make a prediction to who can win on a team on team basis

But most of it will come in the March air. After this phenomenon of basketball concludes, the regular season end for basketball and then playoffs begin, while the Major League Baseball Season is right around the corner as well. This tournament is a pick me up for the beginning of spring and summer, so it is time to soak in some basketball, and enjoy a happy spring break. 

Suave’s Spotify Sunday

Lady’s and Gentleman, we have made it to the last day of the week. So Suave wants to bring tradition into your life by starting Suaves Spotify Sunday, a day where Suave selects seven songs from Spotify to kee p your Sunday’s fresh and relaxing. Let’s get started 

  1. Crew-  Goldlink feat Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy 

With Brent Faiyaz flexing with his melodic voice for the hook, Goldlink comes in and just murders his flow, showing love for his crew while also getting some clever lines like “girl your you can’t tie me down like Ray J said but no I’m down” great shoutout from the song Tie Me Down by New Boys and Ray J, one of my middle school favs. Shy Glizzy brings a turnt up vibe, combine all 3 of them and it’s one hell of a song.

2.  Saint JHN-  3 Below

Saint JHN interests me. With his feature In Teflon Sega’s Beretta Lake,  Saint JHN comes back and drops a single 3 Below,  which is just another great song from JHN, and I’m expecting a big 2017 from me.

3.  NAV- Good for it

NAV is blowing up, from his producing to his bars. NAV recently dropped NAV, a mixtape with amazing beats and songs, Good For it shows how NAV just flexes on everything and that he is good for anything that he is trying to accomplish. Although he is just “a brown boy with a bag” he is co signed with The  Weeknd, and with a Metro Boomin collaboration album in the works, this will not be the last time you heard of NAV in 2017.

4. Perfect by Ed Sheeran 

Ed did it again. This song is just a perfect example of what every guy goes through when they find the right woman. A true story of love and the confusion of what your emotions a person is going through when someone is in love, while making this song sound like a dope 1950’s love song, yeah no Ed you’re the king.

5. KYLE feat Cousin Stizz Want me back

KYLE is killing 2017 right now, From Doubt it to I SPY, although the vision and success started in 2012, KYLE knows exactly what he wants to do and is making the music he has dreamt about. Want me back is basically about all of your demons wanting you back, but knowing that your family and loved ones are with your side, showing you guidance from those demons, while doing it in the happiest way possible. 

6. Khalid Saved 

Khalid crushed American Teen, Saved Is a calm song, showing Khalid will always save a certain girls numbed after a breakup, and he just says the little things that can really break a guys heart, like “I hope you think of all the times… I was the only one who cared” I am currently going through this stuff and Khalid was spot on, Drake who?

7. Mac Demarco This Old Dog

I feel like it is an obligation, to always incorporate Mac Demarco into your Sunday playlist. His music is very calm yet hard hitting at the same time. if you want to catch some sun shine, while listening to some extremely soothing music, Demarco is your guy.

Hope you enjoyed Suaves Spotify Sunday. There will be more great songs next week, so don’t sleep on these Suave playlists next Sunday. Suave out.
