I've made it known in this blog that I am a Dragon Ball Z fan. It's borderline nerddom. Still, there are some lessons that can be learned from the main protagonist, Goku.
First, Goku doesn't quit. No matter how difficult the situation is, he never quits. Whether it's an alien (Cooler) who's got Goku trapped in a bunch of wires or a blob who absorbs every powerful fighter in sight (Majin Buu), Goku always seems to find a way to come out on top. Credit the saiyan's resourcefulness, but also credit his tenacious spirit.
Next, Goku constantly pushes his limits. It's said that a saiyan gets stronger with every battle, which is why Goku loves to fight. With every Dragon Ball Z era, Goku (or the protagonist of that era, for that matter) finds a higher form to obtain. This is done through putting his body through rigorous training and through finding ways to better himself (like how he underwent intense gravity training on his way to Namek).
Finally, Goku is constantly learning. Goku's had numerous mentors and tutors throughout the arc and has learned new techniques such as the Kamehameha and the Spirit Bomb. Goku's pursuit of knowledge has made him into the warrior he is today, even if it's to the chagrin of his wife.
The point is, we should all aspire to be like Goku. We should find ways to push our limits and better ourselves as people. Whether it'd be through physically bettering ourselves or through learning, we should better ourselves the way Goku does.

A crappy team finally got their first win of the season! Yay? Here's what was taken away from the ninth week in the NFL season.
Halfway through the season, the NFL has offered some pleasant surprises. But how will these teams respond to the second half of the season?
This edition of Nostalgia Game Review will take a look at Sly Cooper 3: Honor Among Thieves. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions for the PlayStation 2 in 2005, Sly Cooper 3 takes Sly Cooper on a journey with his motley crew to open up his family vault.
As Sly, you fight off crime lords and navigate through puzzles throughout the game. You can also play as his partners, Murray and Bentley, and even play as Carmelita Fox. The game takes you from the beautiful sights of Italy to the rigid mountains in China to a swordfight out on the sea.
This game sticks to the Sly Cooper formula of stealth and platforming. The missions are diverse and creative, ranging from hacking a computer to engaging in a singing duel. The game's humor is apparent throughout and the game does a great job of storytelling. The stealth mechanics in the gameplay are utilized well and feels right.
If you're a huge fan of the PlayStation 2, definitely give Sly Cooper 3 a try. It is an entertaining game that deviates from traditional platformers.

College Football Playoff Four:
It's not the best time to be a Manchester United fan. The once-proud franchise and winner of 20 Premier League titles, 12 FA Cups, and numerous titles, the Red Devils are currently sitting in the tenth spot in the Premier League. Their recent 1-0 loss to Bournemouth F.C. has only cemented the recent trend.
There have been recent talks of a 'rebuild' at Old Trattford, which may explain why Manchester United hasn't done so well this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for younger pieces to build and has been impressed by the center midfield duo of Scott McTominay and Fred. Other pieces, however, may be at the expense of being transferred (see Paul Pogba and his near-transfer to Paris Saint-Germain).
Would getting a striker Lautaro Martinez be a good idea? Maybe. But Martinez will be an expensive transfer to move. There are also rumors of a Zlatan Ibrahamovic return to Europe. However, Zlatan seems more inclined to join a team in the Italian Serie league. Other potential additions for the Red Devils include Thomas Muller and Erling Braut Haaland.
This is a transitional time for Manchester United fans. Not even competing for a spot in Europa has Man U fans wondering what will happen next. Will Ole be gone? Who will be sent out to cut payroll? Once May rolls around, things will get interesting in Manchester.
Welcome to another edition of Blending Buddy, where I showcase the smoothies I make to lead a healthier lifestyle! This edition is called the "Horned Frog".
So I have to confess something. In spite of doing really well with my picks this week, there's always one team that seems to be a pain in the ass to pick every week. This year, that team happens to be the Tennessee Titans. They're such an enigma. First, they're world beaters with a stout defense. The next week, they're a garbage team that's barely better than the Miami Dolphins. So will they be able to beat the Carolina Panthers this week?
The Seattle Sounders have become one of MLS's most prominent franchises. A commercial success in the Seattle region, the Sounders have an MLS Cup in their history and have made another appearance in the MLS Cup. Once again, they've made another appearance, besting LAFC last Tuesday by a score of 3-1. Their opponent is a familiar one, one they've faced in their two MLS Cup appearances: Toronto FC.
A big part of Seattle's success has been the duo of Jordan Morris and Raul Ruidiaz. Both forwards have combined for 27 goals and 14 assists this season. Nicolas Lodeiro (nine goals, 16 assists) has also helped the Sounders. The team has also received three cards all season. As for goaltending, Stefan Frei has 11 clean sheets and has allowed 53 goals all season (125 saves).
Toronto FC has a scoring duo of their own; Jozy Altidore and Alejandro Pozeulo combined for 25 goals and 21 assists. If the Sounders are to win their second MLS Cup, it is imperative that they contain these two at all costs. As of right now, it seems like soccer (and football) is alive and well in the Emerald City.
After #5 Oklahoma's upset at the hands of Kansas State on Saturday, the playoff door has suddenly swung wide open for both Utah and Oregon. With teams like Penn State and Florida facing tough games down the road, it'll only broaden the opportunity for these two Pac-12 schools to get into the playoff. Granted, both won't be able to get in at the same time; that would require catastrophic collapses from Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson. But the Pac-12 will get their representative if the following happens.
#1 LSU has a fairly tame schedule aside from the Alabama game. In fact, this is probably one Ed Orgeron's best teams yet, being loaded at practically every position. However, in the case of LSU getting upset by, say, Texas A&M, this would give Oregon or Utah the opportunity to seize the final spot. Either school would have the conference championship advantage over LSU as well, which would make their case more compelling. Still, both Pac-12 schools must win the rest of the way leading up to the Pac-12 Championship. Otherwise, this will mean nothing.
Of course, having Ohio State have one of their embarrassing upsets at the hands of a school like Iowa would help nicely. However, with the way the Buckeyes are playing, that seems unlikely. The Pac-12 is going to have to hope for a classic LSU collapse down the road. Will it happen? Who knows.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
