    LeBron James, Adrian Peterson, and misguided mythology

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 132: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion comes out of the closet as a Minnesota Vikings fan. 


    Drafting Rick Spielman 1.01 in GM fantasy drafts.


    The absurdity of forecasting the future solely by predicting past events to repeat themselves. 


    The Golden State Warriors should have been at least 1/5 prohibitive favorites before the 2015 NBA Finals began.


    Lebron James is officially on the back end of the age curve, a degraded version of his former self. 


    Sports analytics is not nerdspeak, it's truth speak. 


    Adrian Peterson exemplifies Lebron Jamesian misguided mythology in football. 


    Assume a player who receives Demarco Murray-level money will receive the lion's share of touches until proven otherwise, not vice versa.

    Analytics are not actually complicated, but rather, they simply your sports life.

    The NFL and Adrian Peterson

    in Politics

    “We believe he deserves to play while the legal process plays out,” General Manager Rick Spielman said at a news conference Monday Gov. Mark Dayton called it “an awful situation,” and Nike, which pays Peterson handsomely to endorse its products, distanced itself from the star running back.Anheuser-Busch said it was “increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code.”The NFL assured Anheuser-Busch, “We are taking action and there will be much more to come.”


    "This has been an ongoing and deliberate process since last Friday's news. In conversations with the NFL over the last two days, the Vikings advised the League of the team's decision to revisit the situation regarding Adrian Peterson. In response, the League informed the team of the option to place Adrian on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list Star Tribune

    What's Hot: Pittsburgh Steelers WR depth, Adrian Peterson and the 'Dream Team'

    in Football

    Running backs are making news, both with the Steelers and around the NFL.


    While Adrian Peterson returns to the Vikings in a controversial manor, Jerome Bettis offered very optimistic remarks in regards to Le'Veon Bell, saying he could become the best running back in team history. An All-Pro last year, what other running backs should be held in Bell's regard as an elite running back? What dark horses are on our lists? Does Peterson, who played in just one game in 2014, still make the cut as one of the NFL's best backs?


    The Steelers wide receivers have made their own news thus far in the team's OTAs, with onlookers saying that this could become one of the best units in the NFL. Specifically, receivers Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates have received praise recently for their efforts thus far in OTAs. With that in mind, what are some of the other great receiving units in Steelers history, and, if you could build your "Dream Team" of Steelers receivers to have on a team, what would it be?


    These topics will all be tackled in the course of an hour in the newest edition of "What's Hot", which will air Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. ET. To listen live, go to our BlogTalkRadio page at the start of the show. To listen anytime, search "The Standard is The Standard" on iTunes to listen in the podcast section. The podcast will also be featured on Thursday here on BTSC.


    Fans are encouraged to call in at (347) 850-8581and tell us who is in your Steelers wide receiver "Dream Team", along with any other questions Steelers related. Enjoy the show!

    ADRIAN ESPOSITO: Prolific Young Social Issues Filmmaker

    in Religion

    https://espocinema.wordpress.com/about/


    Algonquin Elder Mike Bastine will possibly also join us tonight.


    Adrian Esposito is a young prolific filmmaker. He is 26 years old and has already made seven films many of which have won awards.  Adrian’s films tend to focus on social issues and subjects that have faced significant challenges in life.  Diagnosed as having autism as a child, Adrian has faced many challenges of his own.  His history includes dealing with many educational and social barriers but he remains positive focusing on his talents and strengths rather than limitations.


    “Inspired by his love of film, Adrian began to take classes at The Animation Workshop at Animatus Studio in Rochester when he was 12 years old. This study opened a door for him. He found a way to express himself using the vocabulary and the medium of film,” writes journalist Jim Memmott in an article about Adrian Esposito in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (Oct 18, 2008).  In 2008, Adrian received his certificate in Radio & Television Broadcasting from Monroe #1 BOCES EMCC.  He continues to study filmmaking with Animatus Studio.


    Adrian feels that his Autism works well with his filmmaking. “People with this disorder tend to hyper focus on an area of interest, my interest area has always been movies,” says Adrian.
