To love and to hate Tom Brady

Take 2 different takes on Tom Brady: To loathe Tom Brady 
By Kevin Kurz

The Super Bowl is just around the corner. For many this means Parties, a halftime show from a pop star usually past their prime, and “cringy” Dorito commercials your dad somehow finds hilarious. But for those like me who watch the game because we love the sport it’s less than a joyous occasion. This is because for another year we're forced to watch 'Mr. Perfect', Tom Brady.
To be fair some of my hatred for Brady does stem from jealously. As a Rams fan, the last time I got to see my team have a winning record was in 2003. Meanwhile, this will the 6th time the Patriots and Tom Brady will have been to the Super Bowl since 2003. However, my distaste for Brady goes far beyond jealousy. I don't hate Brady because he's great, I dislike Brady for how he handles his greatness
Brady comes across as smug, conceited, and whiny. Whether he's demanding other players to pay their respects to him, kicking a player after they tackle him, or acting as if he's a victim for destroying evidence while under investigation for cheating, he never fails to be an egotistical cry baby that refuses to take responsibility. But why should he be held accountable for his actions? After all, he's Tom Brady. So while for many Super Bowl Sunday will be a fun day, for those like me, the day will be spent anxiously praying that Brady doesn't add another championship to his résumé.
Superbowl LI (51) will air this Sunday, February 5, 6:30 PM on FOX. The Patriots will play the Falcons.

Clermont Home to Supercross Legends

CLERMONT, Florida – Aldon Baker, one of the most well-known and successful trainers within the Supercross community, is currently training several of the sport’s top riders at his facility, which is located in the Clermont area. In an interview at this training facility, Baker gave a glimpse into what it is actually like to train these professional riders.             When I asked Baker about his journey to becoming a trainer in his field, he explained that he initially trained individuals, specifically bicyclists, using cardio and strength conditioning techniques. Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

“A Diagnosis Isn’t the End.”
At TEDxLSSC this past weekend, Army veteran and full-time LSSC student, James Thomas Simons struck the audience with the gravity of mental health in his speech  “It’s time to change the way we think (and talk) about mental health.” From talking about Simon’s experiences with his mental health to sharing how 2/3 of the population never seek help, he inspires the audience by bringing positive awareness to mental health and those who suffer from its various forms. Even though he “[believed] that [mental illness] would label [him] as a failure,” he sought help and support. Despite his thoughts that post-traumatic stress disorder would make people see him as “a weapon with the safety broken,” Simons encourages others that it isn’t the end- that a diagnosis isn’t the final verdict.              Mental…
