Enjoy today because it may be the last day to celebrate some things that will go away until Easter... or just celebrate because you deserve it!
Try and spot FOUR different objects in this picture! (*Hint* They are all famous faces in New Orleans.)
P.S. I'm sorry if one of them scared you but I thought it would funny to add it in there... Hopefully you know what I'm talking about when you find it.
“I remember getting the snot literally knocked out of me; Then, finally, I grew. It was like, ‘OK, revenge for all these years that you guys beat up on me.’ From that point it was my style. I didn’t know any other way to play. Hitting was part of the game and I loved it.” -Angela James
"Joy, you see, isn’t a destination. I don’t ever feel like I get to a place where I can say, 'I’m the joy expert. Every day I have joy all day long.' It isn’t like that. It’s an ongoing dance for me. I have to work at it. Joy, you see, builds gradually over time, and the process never stops." -Bonnie St. John
"A lot of athletes think the best approach is to be cocky and think you’re better than the other person. Whenever I tried to be overconfident, I didn’t win. But I know that the opponent is just as human as I am. I believe whoever the Lord wills wins, and it’s really anyone’s win on any given day." -Paige McPherson
We are going to study how Edwin Encarnación performed against the Cleveland Indians in terms of home runs to see how he will do this year when he joins them.
How will Edwin Encarnación do in Cleveland this year?
Encarnación's 42 home runs if they were hit in Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians.
What would it look like if we calculated the Encarnación's career totals vs. Cleveland? First, his home run ability vs. Cleveland would be .040 in 198 attempts (8 career HR's). In a simulated performance of his career, he recieved 7 home runs and .035 success rate. Below is how he would do in 100 simulated trials with his career statistics for home runs.
Keep in mind, this is not a dim forecast for him with Cleveland because he probably does not do his best vs. Cleveland's pitching. Also, some of his home runs could be from home in Toronto and that could've been subtracted, but I wanted to include all data vs. Cleveland. Encarnación has been playing since 2005 but still does not have enough data to show how he really can play in Progressive Field. Only time can show that.
"I love to race. I'm not an adrenaline junkie but I like feeling nervous. I like the thrill. A lot of the coaches laugh at me and tell me I'm crazy." -Dina Asher-Smith
"[The Jim Crow Era] didn't stop us. If you make up your mind that you're going to do something, you're going to do it. Black women have always been strong anyway." -Winnie Stanford
“One of the mantras we’ve been drilling into me is that I have to conquer myself. Conquering myself is the only victory that truly matters, and when I walk away from the long jump or walk away from the 100m, I have to be proud of myself and know that I gave 100 percent.” -Tianna Bartoletta
"It's something I know my grandfather pounded into my dad's head, and he pounded into mine: Always be a good person. And I carry that over into basketball. I love the game, and I hope to play at the highest level. But I also hope to become a really great teammate, to always have energy, to lift people up when things aren't going well." -A'ja Wilson
Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm a sports fan! I've been avidly watching sports since 2011 because I found that by watching sports, I would be able to communicate with my dad and brother better. Ever since I got into sports, I've been able to enjoy myself more when I go to sporting events with my family.
