Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz suspends campaign

Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz lost in the Indiana primary tonight. Ted Cruz is ending his presidential campaign, as he lost to front-runner Donald Trump. Cruz worked hard to appeal to conservative voters, especially evangelicals. But as the primaries wore on, he lost even those voters to Donald Trump. Ted Cruz was the first GOP candidate to launch his bid for the Presidency. At the end of April, Cruz had picked Carly Fiorina to be his running mate for Vice President. Yet, she will not be in the mix now. John Kasich is the only person that can stop Trump, in 'the Donald's quest to be the GOP candidate' for 2016 presidency. The GOP convention is in Cleveland in July 2016. California is one of the final states for Donald Trump to win, and their state primary is in June 2016. In the Indiana primary, Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton on the Democratic party end. The results are in, but this victory might be a late one for Bernie. Many Democratic political pundits are favoring Hillary to win the Democratic party nomination. Could the election in November pit Trump vs. Clinton? Enjoy the picture above of Ted Cruz, and the capitol building. Election day is six months away.

Can the Golden State Warriors win 73 games? Warriors can do it!

Well, it's time for the NBA regular season to end. The NBA season will end in less than two weeks. The Golden State Warriors are five wins away from breaking the Chicago Bulls record, of most wins in a regular season. The Golden State Warriors have 68 wins in 75 games. The NBA predictors are picking the Warriors to not break the record, as are many NBA sportswriters. The Warriors last loss was on Friday night to Boston. The game was a tight one, and the warriors lost by three. Hope the warriors break the record, as it would be another incredible goal the team has reached. The warriors will play San Antonio two more times, during their final six games of the regular season. Speaking of the Spurs, the team is undefeated at home this year. The spurs will count on reserves to lead them to victory, against the warriors. Their coach plans to rest the starters, during those two games. The NBA playoffs is an exciting time of the year for me always. The spurs and warriors will get the top two seeds, in the western conference. Lastly, Stephen Curry is having another MVP season. He leads the league in scoring. He broke the NBA record for 3 point shooting this year too. NBA Sportswriters believe that he should be in Most Improved Player award conversations, as well. Even though the Phoenix Suns and LA Lakers are my favorite teams, the Warriors are exciting to watch. These reasons are why the NBA is fun to watch. Enjoy the picture above of Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr.

Ben Carson endorsing Donald Trump!

Ben Carson has dropped out of the Presidential Race for 2016. Today, the retired neurosurgeon endorsed Donald Trump for President. Donald Trump appears to be the front-runner for the Republican Party. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are dueling it out for the top choice. With eight months left before the election, both parties will have a final candidate from each side. Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz are battling Trump for the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders appear to be dueling it out on the Democratic side, with Miami being the most recent debate venue. Next, Ohio and Florida are the next two primaries for the Democratic side. Florida, Ohio, and Illinois are the next three primaries for the Republican side. Hope that John Kasich and Ted Cruz can battle Trump, in the next debate. In closing, the presidential race is heating up. Enjoy the picture above of 'presidential race 2016.'

Australian Open 2016 recap!

The Australian Open ended yesterday for tennis fans. Novak Djokovic won his sixth Australian Open title. Angelique Kerber won her first Australian Open title, in a stunning upset of Serena Williams. Both finals were hard to watch, as Melbourne is many hours ahead. In the men's side, Novak D. beat Andy Murray again. This time, the match lasted three sets only. The match was a good clash, of the top 2 players. Novak beat Roger Federer in the semifinals, in four sets. It was good to see Roger get a set off of Novak. Hopefully, Roger can win the match in their next encounter. There were a good amount of upsets, on the women's side. Serena Williams was hoping to win the title, and she would have tied Steffi Graff for 22 grand slam titles. Yet, Serena was denied by Angelique in three tough sets. Serena should be able to capture another title this year, to equal Steffi's record. Serena was gracious in defeat. In closing, the tournament was another good opening grand slam for 2016. The next grand slam tournament is the French Open, in May 2016. Enjoy the picture above, as it is a logo from the Australian Open.

Keeping New Year's Resolutions!

This year is coming to an end. New Year's Resolutions are the next best thing, which people will make in a few days. But, it is quite hard to attain the New Year's Resolutions. Many people break them within the first day of the new year. This reason is why people don't make New Year's Resolutions too. A friend of mine asked me "what are your new year's resolutions?" My response is "it is better not to make them, as the resolution will be hard to attain." Some basic new year's resolutions are losing weight, or to manage one's finances better. Keeping New Year's resolutions can boil down to willpower. New Year's resolutions are a common tradition globally. For those of you that attain the resolutions, there is a good feeling. The new year is a time to reflect, so people want to attain the resolutions. For those of you that don't attain the resolutions, it is ok. Good luck to everyone! Hope you enjoy the picture above, as it is an image for listing those resolutions.

Which team will beat the Golden State Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors have won fifteen games, and the NBA season is not even one month old. The defending NBA champions look unstoppable. If the Golden State Warriors win on Tuesday night, it will be the best start in NBA season history. Luke Walton is the interim coach for the Warriors, as Steve Kerr has gone through back problems. The Golden State Warriors are the best team in California too, as the Clippers and Lakers have faltered tremendously. Both LA teams are under .500, in winning percentage. As for the rest of the NBA, the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers are battling out in the Eastern Conference. Behind Golden State, the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks are close behind in victories. The NBA season is not even 20% old, but it's been a good one so far. The Philadelphia 76ers are the only winless team in the NBA, so let's hope they can win some games soon. Some of last year's best teams are under .500, including Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets. Recently, the Houston Rockets franchise fired Kevin McHale, their former coach. In closing, which team will hand the Golden State Warriors with their first loss? The Warriors play the Lakers on Tuesday night. The Lakers have won only two games, in Kobe Bryant's final year of his career. Only time will tell if there is a team, that can beat Golden State. Gotta love this game!

NBA 2015-16 season; which team will win the NBA championship?

The NBA season started about 9 days ago, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are the favorite in Las Vegas. But, the Golden State Warriors won last year. Don't tell Stephen Curry that his team is not the favorite. So far, there are many undefeated teams in the NBA. There are winless teams too, like the LA Lakers. In Kobe Bryant's so called final year in the NBA, when will his team win their first game? Good question, and hope Kobe answers it soon. The Phoenix Suns have won three of their first five games. With the NBA season only 2 weeks old, the favorites are San Antonio and Golden State out west. Houston and OK City Thunder will be tough too, but they need to improve their shot selection to hang with the Spurs and Warriors. Out east, the Cleveland Cavaliers will battle Washington and Miami Heat for the best team. Atlanta could make it back to Eastern conference finals too. Hope it's another fun year. Chris Paul is the picture for this post. Peace!
