The best month for sports: October

It’s a sports fan’s favorite month of the year: it’s October, and every major league is playing. NHL? Check. NBA? Check. MLB? Check. NFL? Check. You name the sport, it’s going on. So, let’s see what we should expect this October. We start out with a new NBA and NHL season. The NBA had the most insane offseason, and the hype has never been bigger. With the league’s balance restored every team is hungry to prove they’re the best. With preseason already under the way, NBA fans couldn’t be more excited. Meanwhile, on the ice, a couple games are already underway in the regular season. Promising young stars like Connor McDavid and veterans like Alex Ovenchkin are ready to lead their teams to the Stanley Cup. We move on to the NFL and MLB seasons, both in full swing. The NFL is now through week 5, and a surprise is at the top, the 49ers. However, we are still seeing the Patriots grinding away as they aim towards yet another Super Bowl. As for the MLB, it’s postseason time. A little “bold” prediction here, the…

FunBox lives up to its name

Looking for something new to do that will give you lots of awesome photos? Try Funbox in Arcadia. It’s a museum where you can go to have some fun and walk through different themed rooms with special art installations. My family and I had to chance to go and I highly recommend it. Here is  what you should expect at FunBox! Walking through the doors, you will be greeted by a teddy bear tunnel welcoming you to the place. It’s a perfect photo opportunity and is so adorable. Then you are greeted by some mini set ups. These include a pig designed section as well as TikTok and Instagram logos if you want to post something to those sites while you’re there. As you move through, you will come across a “bubble party”. You get five minutes to jump around and take some pictures in the “bubbles”, before moving on to your next spot. You will then be able to do a few more interactive things, such as going into a room filled with flying balloons and a room where the whole place is a…

Angels blow the sox off the White Sox

This past Sunday I was able to go to an Angel game, where they were taking on the Chicago White Sox. The game was action packed and great to see, especially seeing the Angels just dominate and win 9-2. Here’s a recap, and what to expect as the season nears its end. There were a lot of positives for the Angels. For one, they consistently scored every other inning or so. Two, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols were both out of the lineup, so seeing the team win without them was impressive. Third, Shohei Ohtani hit only his 2nd Homerun in 33 games. If the Angels want to make a miracle run into the playoffs, he’s going to need to show up. Finally, the pitching was outstanding. Despite hitting two batters, Griffin Canning had an outstanding outing, only allowing 1 run, and allowing the Angels to not have to get too deep into their bullpen. There was also a lot of power on display, with Matt Thaiss and Kole Calhoun going yard along with Ohtani. It wrapped up the series against the struggling White Sox,…

Fortnite’s biggest tournament yet

One of, if not the most, popular games of all time Fortnite, just held one of e-sports biggest tournaments yet, the Fortnite World Cup. Over $30 million was put into it and it was hosted this past Friday – Sunday. To qualify, you had to be at the top of your region’s standings for 1 of the 10 qualifying weeks. Here’s how it went down. The first day, Friday, was the creative World Cup, a mode in Fortnite where you can make your own maps, death runs, battle courses and anything your mind can think of. Cizzorz, a popular streamer and Faze Fortnite member, with the help of his world-class death run team, was able to pull away and him and his team now have $1 million to split four ways. This was then followed by the Fortnite pro am. Where money was at stake for charity. And pro Airwaks and his celebrity teammate RL Grimes took home $500,000 each to give to their charity of choice. Now, for the big events, the Solo and Duo World Cup Finals. Winners get $3 million. There was…
