Hitting Back

Hitting Back Hitting Back is a high school sports blog focusing on the classic student athletes of Berkeley Carroll. The Berkeley Carroll School was the original influence for this page.
(1)

I plan to return covering games and expand to the local high school scene.

Mission: Our mission is quite simple. To provide Berkeley Carroll with an outlet that highlights dedicated student athletes. That also could feature the ACIS and other sports.

How A Good Song Can Inspire Us

Listening To: A-Ha "Manhattan Skyline" What makes a good song so inspiring? Perhaps it's the way the music captivates us. Take this A-Ha song linked above called appropriately enough, "Manhattan Skyline." I've listened to it a bunch of times while watching another unique black and white animated video by the Norwegian trio of Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy....

November 22nd, 1963

Fifty-seven years ago on this day, November 22nd, 1963, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas during a parade with a motorcade in Dealey Plaza. It remains one of the worst tragedies in American history. A century following the fatal death of President Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy suffered a similar fate due to an assassin's bullet. A horrible ending to the 35th President of the United States....

Anxiety and Depression

What I'm Listening To: So, there I was home in my room on a cold day turned into night. I had trouble sleeping this week. When you're tired, that's never a good sign. Especially if you battle anxiety and depression. It makes you want to do nothing. I was still writing blogs here. But wasn't all that productive. Sometimes, the heart wants what it wants....

Sometimes, we need a reminder of how special life can be. I talk about it daily. It's all around you. If you look closely, you'll realize why.

When You Shouldn’t Have To Ask

What I'm Listening To: Earlier tonight, I was at the shopping center here in Arden Heights running a errand. After I picked up Claritin for my allergies in preparation for my first allergy shot in two decades at CVS, I decided to takeout Japanese from a good restaurant in the same vicinity. I was in the mood for soup. So, I ordered the spicy dumpling soup with two rolls....

Live Acoustic: Taylor Momsen sounds phenomenal singing new single “25”

Taylor Momsen seems to always fly under the radar in the music scene despite her obvious God given talent. The lead singer of The Pretty Reckless recently released new single, "25" off the band's fourth album Death by Rock and Roll. It's set for release next February 12, 2021. The 27-year old blonde bombshell has a remarkable voice that delivers the powerful lyrics to the band's edgy songs....

The WFAN project of Evan Roberts and Craig Carton is off to a rocky start

By show of hands, who here is surprised that the first week of the new WFAN afternoon show of Carton and Roberts didn't get off to a good start? It really isn't surprising. Pairing a rehabbed Craig Carton with the very knowledgeable Evan Roberts is like teaming up James Harden with Russell Westbrook. Both needed the ball to be successful. It's no surprise that Westbrook has asked for a trade after a disappointing year in Houston....

A difference in comedy

What makes good comedy these days? I always come back to one answer. Not taking yourself seriously. See the above related video of Saturday Night Live legend Chris Farley showing up as Newt Gingrich in hair weave and perfect costume while addressing the Republican Congress during 1995. Contrast that with the redundant garbage the current SNL sells to viewers. How many times can one see a washed up Alec Baldwin as soon to be former President Trump?...

A Light for Luck

Anyone who knows me these days is aware of my transformation into a believer of lighting candles. Along with recommitting myself to the gym and to a better diet, I am putting in my best effort to deliver more. Be better. Like I've preached in other writings. There is a goal in mind here. Not only to become an improved person, but one who's more determined to make things happen....

The Soundtrack of Life

On a very rainy and stormy evening in which we thank our Veterans for all they did to sacrifice for the USA 🇺🇸, I sit here wondering about what some of those great soldiers fought so hard for. They're true heroes and patriots. Would they agree with how biased the media coverage is to one party following the election that won't go away?...

Listening To: Because why not. The decade of the 80's just hits differently. It truly was a much simpler time. More fun too. So, how does a cool throwback Motley Crew song relate to this post? Just like this. I can write about anything. It all depends what enters my mind. There aren't any big topics. At the moment, I've freed my mind to talk about anything. [ 529 more words ]

A Wing and a Prayer

I've been back at the gym for seven days. Monday night was my seventh time back in the last eight days. It makes a difference. I feel good. Much better than how helpless I felt following an hour at the gym on a late night two weeks ago. I was tired and should've took the day off. Instead, I had a setback and went to ER due to a bad anxiety attack. [ 803 more words ]

A Saturday To Remember In November

Listening To: I know from the title alone what most people will think this is about. Only it sure isn't. Don't assume with me.

On Saturday, November 7th, 1992, something meaningful took place for me that day. [ 1,126 more word ]
