Best Golfing Lessons

Best Golfing Lessons

My mother was a good golfer. Not the best, but quite good nevertheless.

She taught me how to play golf when I was in eighth grade and it became my favorite sport ever since. It is so much fun to pick up a stick and hit the ball with power.

When I turned eighteen and got my degree in college, I moved out of my house and started working in a small office in downtown Porto Alegre.

How to Teach Your Child Fundamental Basketball Skills

How to Teach Your Child Fundamental Basketball Skills

As a father of two boys (they both play basketball), I’ve been devoting most of my free time to teaching them the fundamentals of the game. The school system is mainly responsible for teaching kids academic skills but they don’t provide any coaching on how to play basketball. When you go to watch an NBA game, it’s pretty obvious that most players can’t shoot beyond 15 feet and aren’t able to dribble the ball with either hand. Consequently, they end up taking crazy fade-away jump shots instead of making easier baskets under higher percentage situations.

Differences Between American and European Football

Differences Between American and European Football

The European Football Conference (EFC) and the National Football League (NFL) have been meeting for 53 years. These conferences have played out very differently in these decades, from the physicality to the viewership of games.

In American football, a touchdown results in six points being scored by a team. In European football, teams score only two points with a successful conversion kick after scoring a touchdown. Also, in American football there are eleven players on each side while European football has fifteen players per side. Other differences include the number of downs that may be made before possession is changed and how many yards must be made to achieve a first down depending upon where it occurred between the two forty-yard lines at the beginning of play.

This result pushed Chelsea’s all-time goal-scoring record above 500 goals, finally making them the highest-scoring football team in English football history.”
