1. J.J. Watt - What started out as a mere fundraiser for Houston with a goal of a few hundred thousand dollars has turned into a mega-story with Watt raising over $18M for Harvey relief in Houston. Watt deserves so much credit. An athlete truly in-tune with his city and community. And really, one that just does good for others.
2. Frances Tiafoe - Monday night's 1st round opener against Roger Federer was absolutely classic. The 19 year-old American took the great Federer into the final moments of a fifth set with some serious swag. Tiafoe surely made a name for himself, and I'll definitely be looking for him in the future.
3. Yale University - Look, I'm all for changing names and tearing down statues of people who don't deserve it - like, those who really don't deserve it. Not because of our distorted version of history. Kudos to Yale taking a step in this direction removing Calhoun, a big time slavery advocate, as a name from one of their buildings.
1. Hurricane Harvey - An obvious one here. The shots, videos, and stories are simply awful. Stay strong, Houston.
2. North Korea - Well, if things we can't control are a downer, we get North Korea continuing to test nuclear bombings. Juuuuuuust fantastic.
3. End of DACA - Just another week where our President ends more opportunities to diversify our country and offer opportunities for beneficial immigration in our country. Once again, rather than adjust or fix parts of a beneficial program, the current administration wants to get rid of it - you know, probably because it's tied to the former President. Ugh...
