[No. 040] Enthusiasm Unknown To Mankind
Thursday, September 4, 2015
So: sports, amirite? The University of Michigan Wolverines of Ann Arbor begin a new era tonight and, despite my best efforts to temper my own expectations, I’ve entered delirium. Harbaugh tho. But first?
It's not talked about enough, but Serena Williams may be the single greatest athlete we've been lucky enough to watch over the past few decades - certainly since I've been alive. You can make the case for Michael Jordan. Michael Phelps, too. But quite honestly, what Serena has done throughout her career is mind boggling and y'all need to recognize.
She’s currently trying to win the U.S. Open which would give her the full, calendar-year Grand Slam. But she’s already won 21 major championships, and she’s done so with incredible class and grace, given some of the adversity she’s had to face in a sport not necessarily known for featuring Compton-raised, black female athletes.
Here's hoping she pulls off her Grand Slam.
Anyways, this morning we have a great article about Sir Harbaugh (but seriously, let’s just win football games!), the most popular iPhone app/game downloads ever (Tinder isn’t on the list yet, but Candy Crush sure is!), a brand new newsletter feature (it’ll be nice and bubbly!), and the launch of September’s playlist. Enjoy!
