Like the great Pele once said, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrificing, and most of all, love what you are doing or learning to do.” With Superbowl 50 on the rise, the Panthers and Broncos prepare to face off. With the Panthers Quarterback and recently named MVP, Cam Newton, has become a dynamic force with 50 total touchdowns including the postseason. On the other side, the Broncos carry a strong defense and Manning is still an offensive threat even if his arm is not as strong as it used to be or as strong as the younger quarterbacks is, but he has a stronger mind for the game and more experience. He has perseverance, no matter his setbacks, Manning has fought to continue to prove that he is one of the top tier quarterbacks in the league still.
Beyond the Superbowl and football, the NBA is closing in on their All Star game (2/14). With players like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, DeMarcus Cousins, Lebron James, Paul George, and Dwayne Wade makes this All Star game more interesting. The big question is how will Kobe do on his last All Star game? Recently Kobe has been slowly returning to the player he was when he was younger, the Black Mamba. Kobe has definitely been putting in everything he has this season, so he could leave it on a high note. As the regular season goes the leading team is, Golden State Warriors (46-4). The Warriors have seemed to blow past any team that has come their way this season, but recently they had a challenge against Oklahoma City Thunder. With superstars Westbrook and Durant to go head to head with the young, powerhouse of a team known as the Warriors, they came out of the game with a loss (116-108).
