FOOTBALL IS NOT JUST A SPORT IT’S A FAMILY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Have you ever wondered why a woman would want to play in such a rough sport such as football? Or wondered what do these women get out of being part of the Cleveland Fusion?

Look no further!! We got members of the team to express their real thoughts and feelings on how they truly feel about playing for the Cleveland Fusion. According to one of the Fusion’s centers, Sophia Pagan, the reason she plays football is ““Football will introduce you to lifelong bonds. It’s an experience like no other. It’s more than football. It’s family.”

What Sophia said is exactly the feeling we want to spread amongst the team. The feeling as if everyone is a family and is willing to work together as one to accomplish a common goal. Mind you, everyone that comes together to make the teamwork all come from different parts of the globe with the dedication to push women’s football forward!

Roxi Valdina, player #18, stated “I play to be the best version of myself. Mentally, physically and emotionally. Football has all these things at once. And the person I see when I rise to the challenge is someone, I want to be proud of. So, I give my all. For myself and my team.” We all know that playing football is not an easy sport. It can be very stressing physically as well as mentally. When picking the best team, I would suggest going for a team who puts their all into making sure that each member is ready physically and mentally and will teach anything that is needed in all regards to the game prior to getting on to the field.

Per Quarterback Cassie Brown, “I play for the young girls who think they can’t. I play football so I can continue to build the family I have because of the sport. I play football to prove everyone else wrong.” And Running back #27, E. Lewis, also states ““Football has revealed my character as a woman on and off the field. It’s about the TEAM, the COMMITMENT, the JOURNEY. To be better than you were yesterday. Most importantly to conquer the one sport they once thought would remain only for man.”

I do not know how much more motivation you need. These women who all come from all different walks of life, ethnicities, and backgrounds all have one common goal which is to prove that women can be football players too and can still lead their regular lives when the game is done! It’s you that must believe that you can do it too!!!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Hey guys!! I hope everyone’s week is going well! Mines is going well and has been hella busy with end of the school year activities that my daughters are involved in. These week of music releases was a good one!!!

Ciara finally dropped an album, and I like it! She stays true to form with her upbeat dance songs, and I truly love “Greatest Love”. Obviously this song was dedicated to her hubby and its beautiful. Now I do raise a side eye to the song “Trust Myself” for her adlibs sound like her son’s father, Father. Logic dropped his album…while I do like Logic, this album didn’t give me an excited moment, but I do like the song “Commando” who features G-Eazy & I love “Icy” featuring Gucci Mane…BURR!!!

The two artists who projects that I have been playing on repeat are Johnny Cinco & Ari Lennox. I BEEN a fan of Johnny Cinco since 2013, and with this new project he didn’t disappoint! Ari Lennox is a new artist to me, from what I learned from her is that she has such a beautiful voice who commands your attention. Oh and rest in peace to Lil Lonnie, unfortunately he was gunned down a few weeks ago…he had real potential smh Check out all the other hot releases from Friday!!

JUST CHARLIE – Working Class Trans Teen Drama

Just Charlie from Wolfe Video on Vimeo.

Directed by: Rebekah Fortune

Writer: Peter Machen
Starring: Harry Gilby, Scot Williams, Patricia Potter, Karen Bryson, Ewan Mitchell, Joshua Pascoe
Distributed by: Wolfe

JUST CHARLIE traces with nuance and sensitivity one young person’s struggle with gender identity through the lens of a gritty, sports loving blue-collar community and a tough family struggling to accept it.

Set in Tamworth, a gritty, small working class Midland town in the UK, teenage soccer star Charlie and his family see soccer as a way out of a dead end factory life for him. But Charlie is struggling with gender dysphoria, and is torn between his father’s expectations and shedding his male identity. With dramatic yet surprising results for himself, his family, and his community, Charlie begins a gender transition while continuing to pursue the dream of becoming a soccer star.

JUST CHARLIE is the feature film directorial debut of theatre & TV actress / director Rebekah Fortune. Inspired by emotional real life accounts from transgender communities, Fortune was inspired by these resonant stories to create a poignant account of one young teen’s identity transition in a small, gritty British town.

Said Fortune, “Just Charlie is a film about chasing your dreams, and accepting those who are different because – sometimes – the rules on how to love, what you can do, and who you should be, are meant to be broken. This is a story about identity, who we think we are and who we really are. About being true to ones self in the face of terrible adversity.”

Featuring a breakout lead performance from theatre / TV actor Harry Gilby (star of the play version of The Full Monty). This film marks his cinema debut, and he was nominated for Most Promising Newcomer at the British Film Awards.

NFL responds to Jay-Z Superbowl Rumors

NFL responds to rumours of JAY-Z Super Bowl half-time show


The NFL has responded to rumours that JAY-Z has turned down an offer to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl half-time show.

It’s reported the rapper refused to do the show out of respect for Colin Kaepernick.

He’s an American footballer who refuses to stand during the US national anthem because of what he calls the oppression of people of colour in America.

JAY-Z dedicated a song to him during a New York show earlier this month.

They said: “No decisions have been made on the performer(s) and we are not going to speculate on particular artists.

“Along with Pepsi, we know that we will put on a spectacular show. When it is time to announce her name we will do it. Or his name. Or their names.”

Lady Gaga played the 2017 half-time show.

The performance was the second most-watched Super Bowl half-time show of all-time.

Next year’s Super Bowl will take place on 4 February 2018 at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Earlier this month it was reported that Britney Spears was “in talks” to perform – but the rumours were quickly denied.

“I can tell you it’s not Britney,” said Justin Toman, head of sports marketing for the Super Bowl main sponsor PepsiCo.

Kanye West, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber and Rihanna are among the other names apparently being considered for next year’s half-time show.
