11 Sports That Should Definitely Be In The Olympics

11 Sports That Should Definitely Be In The Olympics

From kickball to giving your cat a bath, these activities are Olympic must-haves.

Did you know that there are fifty-seven sports that make up the Olympics, with forty-two in the summer and fifteen in the winter? I'll admit that fifty-seven seems like a HUGE number, but why stop there? Let's add more!

1. Kickball

Soccer is an Olympic sport, and baseball will be re-added to the list in the Summer 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Soccer + baseball = kickball.

2. Air hockey

Hockey is hard enough on its own, but the addition of air make this classic sport all the more challenging!

3. Foosball

Soccer is the world's most beloved sport, so it only make sense that its table-top cousin should be thrown into the Olympics as well.

4. Sport Stacking (AKA Cup Stacking)

Sure, stacking cups seems like a simple enough concept, but Sport Stacking takes some serious skill! There's even an international association for this fast and furious sport!

5. Frisbee golf

It's frisbee! It's golf! It's frisbee golf! It's frisbee golf! Need I say more?

6. Climbing trees

It takes some mad agility and upper body strength to do some serious tree climbing. Combine that with the fact that trees are found on every continent EXCEPT Antarctica, it would make an easily accessible sport!

7. Freeze tag

We've spent our whole childhood training to be the very best in freeze tag. We deserve the right to compete for a medal.

8. Scooter racing

Agility, coordination, balance, and the drive to be number one are not only the qualities of scooter racing, but also the qualities of a fine Olympic sport.

9. Dodgeball

Dodgeball is a sport which requires skill, strategy, and team cooperation, which in turn make it worthy of the Olympics.

10. Giving a cat a bath

From bobsledding to snowboarding, giving a cat a bath will fit right in under "Extreme/Dangerous Sports".

11. Laser tag

Have I ever played laser tag? No. Do I think it would be AWESOME to watch on TV various countries playing the ultimate game of tag among each other? Yes!!!

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
