The Saint Angeles Rams: Nothing Has Changed

Well, this is awkward

The Saint Angeles Rams: Nothing Has Changed

Editorial Note: This article was actually written before Jeff Fisher was fired. Consider Logan an oracle.

The St. Louis- excuse me... Los Angeles Rams are currently 4-8 on the road to 7-9 as they finish every year. We've passed the "honeymoon phase." Back in July, everyone was so glad the Rams have returned home where they belong. Then September came around and football started being played and the Rams second homecoming to Los Angeles began with a 28-0 blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Now that we are no longer in this state of happiness, what do we do? The Rams have just signed Jeff Fisher to a contract extension this past week. It seems this organization wants to make it clear that, nothing, other than their location, will change anytime soon.

I expressed my thoughts of Jeff Fisher in a previous piece titled "5 Coaches Most Likely to Lose Their Job by Midseason." However, maybe it should have been "5 Coaches Most Likely to Get A Ridiculous Contract Extension By Week 15." I say to myself that, knowing the Rams, I should have seen this coming. They love their, as I called it, "dedication to mediocrity." The Rams just absolutely adore disappointing their fans with a 7-9 finish where they will go into an offseason and change absolutely nothing before starting the cycle all over again. What makes this extension even more ridiculous is it came just one week after Eric Dickerson, Los Angeles Rams legend, spoke out about his thoughts on current head coach Jeff FIsher saying: "I think this football team would do better without Jeff. That's just my opinion. He's had five years to turn this team around and he's had all losing seasons." Dickerson has a point there. So why won't the Rams change things? They have a dedication to mediocrity.

I know you guys are looking at the title and saying "Hey Logan. (Assuming you read the by-line.) Why did you call them the Saint Angeles Rams? Well, I'll answer that for you. Why should we acknowledge that they've changed when they haven't? The Rams refuse to move on. Jeff Fisher is like the boyfriend pleading to his girlfriend to get another chance, and no matter how many titmes he messes up, she goes back to him. Fisher has not made this team any better in five years. Most coaches get fired in two if they can't turn a team around. But Jeff Fisher is sitting down drinking his coffee in the morning and the organization says: "You got to 7-9 again? Good job. Let's pay you more money?" Think of Jeff Fisher as a student who gets Cs all the time. He never progresses, he never gets better, just straight Cs. Would you call him a good student? Jeff FIsher has a lot to fix and he has had long enough to do it and has failed. Sure, you can argue Jared Goff, but what has he shown to indicate that he's good. It's too early to call him a bust yet but he needs to improve as well. All that being said, I propose we call this team the Saint Angeles Rams until they make some changes and separate themselves from Jeff FIsher. Because what does Jeff FIsher give you? He gives you some "7-9 bulls**t."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
