Gender Discrepancies in US Sports Shines at NCAA Tournament

April 29, 2021

It is apparent that there is an alarming difference in treatment between men’s and women’s sports in the US. There have been many scandals regarding this disparity, including the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team suing the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) over discrimination on the basis of sex. Gender disparity in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has gained a lot of exposure in the context of college basketball recently.  The 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament—better known as March Madness—began on March 18th. A TikTok created by Sedona Price, a University of Oregon forward in the women’s basketball bubble, showed the drastic differences between the men’s and women’s weight room. While the men had an expansive collection of weights and exercise machines, the women’s weight room was limited to a rack of dumbbells and a pile of yoga mats. 

The Future of the Patriots After Offseason Pickups

The Future of the Patriots After Offseason Pickups

April 29, 2021

Since the start of the two-decade-long Bill Belichick era, the New England Patriots have been nothing short of unstoppable, winning six Super Bowls and creating arguably the greatest football dynasty ever. This continued success quickly came to an end in the 2020-2021 season when the Patriots posted a disappointing 7-9 record, their worst single season performance since 2000. After watching former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory this past year, Coach Bill Belichick spent a sizable chunk of money during this year’s  NFL free agency in order to revamp the depleted Patriots roster.

Mystery Over Tiger Woods’ Violent Car Accident

March 30, 2021

On Tuesday, February 23rd, professional golfer Tiger Woods was rushed to the hospital after experiencing a severe car crash in Los Angeles. According to The New York Times, around 7 AM, police authorities received a 911 call sharing a sudden crash on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes, a coastal city in Los Angeles County. Police officials arrived at the scene to find the widely famous golfer stuck in his flipped SUV. Police deputy Carlos Gonzalez shared that firefighters needed to use pry bars and the jaws of life (strong rescue equipment) in order to remove the golf star from the vehicle. Once secured in the ambulance, Tiger Woods was rushed to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was placed under immediate surgery. Dr. Anish Mahajan at the Center shared with the Times that the golfer suffered multiple breaks in both his tibia and fibula in his right leg, along with serious lacerations around his left leg and right foot. The doctor added that these breaks were compound fractures, meaning the bones pierced through the athletes’ skin. While hard to imagine, Woods’ legs are stable after successful surgery and are currently healing.

CRLS Football Struggles During Pandemic

March 29, 2021

Since the start of the 2020-2021 school year, it has been unclear whether or not the CRLS football team would have a season. Despite the postponement of many Massachusetts high school football seasons this past fall, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) recently gave Cambridge and other teams around the state the green light to play during the Fall II Season beginning on February 22nd. The CRLS football season is now in full swing, with a new, league-only schedule, as well as safety protocols adjusted for the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. Protocols include weekly COVID-19 testing and daily health check-ins to ensure the safety of the whole team. With a staggering 24 seniors on the team, the Falcons are heading into the new season with high expectations, looking to rebound from their disappointing 3-8 record last year.

Lil Nas X’s Music Video and Satan Shoes: A Form of Protest

April 29, 2021

On March 26th, 2021, the American singer Lil Nas X released a music video for his hit single “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),"—the name playing off the title of a popular gay romance film from 2017—which featured provocative dancing, explicit language, and various symbols empowering his identity as a openly gay man in the music industry. The singer came out publicly as gay in June of 2019 and has received continuous backlash from a particular demographic of Americans; many fans who had enjoyed Nas’s hit songs like “Old Town Road” quickly ceased their support or condemned the artist after he had established a gay and unapologetically feminine image. Like many gay icons of the music industry since the 1970s, Lil Nas X had been demonized by a large portion of the public who hold onto discriminatory, homophobic religious beliefs.
