Estimated Reading Time: 1 Minutes

I have been on vacation this past weekend, and thus did not spend much time paying attention to the world of sports as a whole. Most of my time was spent visiting my girlfriend and exploring a city I’ve never seen before. With that in mind, I would like to direct you to the other posts my colleagues here have been working on. Give them a read if you haven’t already and I’ll be back with a full round of Hot Takes next week.

One piece, in particular, I want to point you towards is Ned’s Spotlight piece brought forth by both our current world climate and this past weekend’s #metoo movement on social media. Ned tackles the issue as it pertains to sports and as a whole and it is spot on. I would love to echo what he says about us all being accountable. I know for a fact that I am either directly responsible for or did nothing to stop at least a few friends’ “me too” stories and that’s not okay. We’ve got to have these uncomfortable conversations and start working to fix it. I believe Ned’s piece is the most important piece on the site this week and it is only the tip of the iceberg.

You can can find that post here.

Andrew Mark Wilhelm is a professional Sound Engineer/Designer, and amateur photographer, writer, musician currently working in Santa Maria on California's Central Coast. Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit has made Andrew an avid fan of all things Detroit but nothing more so than his beloved Detroit Tigers. Every year he tells himself he won't drink the Lions Kool-Aid, and every year winds up heartbroken come January. A Spartan by heart, and a Golden Grizzly by degree, you can catch his (almost) weekly Hot Takes every Hump Day here at The Turf.
