NFL Too Early Season Predictions

The NFL season begins soon and I have a couple candidate for each award.

NFL Too Early Season Predictions


The MVP in the NFL always seems like its going to the same people. But the NFL is a strange place and you never know who could step up and break out of the shell. My pick for MVP this year is Carson Wentz. The eagles still managed to win the superbowl without their main quarterback last season but I think that Wentz will produce an amazing bounce back year. This would propel the defending champions too new heights.


The defensive player of the year seems to be an award that JJ Watt was born for. But after a couple seasons of injuries and other issues, Watt may not have the monster season that people expect of him. My pick for this year is Joey Boss. Bosa has continually helped the Chargers on defense and this year would provide a great opportunity for him to make the jump into the elite.


Le'veon Bell. The man is a workhorse running back who has fought every possible injury and other factors preventing him from breaking out. Bell is ready to make a jump into the best offensive player in the league and will more than definitely make the Steelers contenders.

BOY(Bust of the year)

As much as it sucks, some players never seem to live up to their expectations. I think the person who will have an off year will be Dak Prescott. Prescott had a big rookie year but slightly failed to live up to expectations in his sophomore slump. I think the slump will carry over and prevent Prescott from being elite this year.

The NFL is strange place and something is never set in stone. But considering the previous years of the NFL and the overall trends presented in recent years, I think we're in store for an exciting year.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
