The legend is 55

Today Michael Jordan is 55 years old.

With five Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP Awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP Awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award, Michael Jordan is one of the best basketball players of all times. He had gained a place in the basketball history through the way he managed to score, hence the nickname “Air Jordan”.
Michael Jordan played basketball for 14 years (1985-1999)/ 15 seasons , having the best success with the Chicago Bulls. He won six titles of NBA Champion in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, and 1998.

Along side with Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, they are still my favorite basketball trio ever.

Happy birthday, Michael! Thank you for what you’ve done for this sport!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today – February 16, 2018, a new Chinese New Year starts. 

It is the year of the dog. It’s representative for people born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006, since the Chinese people believe that the year of your birth, and the animal this represents, determines a lot about your personality. 

Wear red today to have good fortune, especially if the dog year is your birth year. 

A typical Chinese New Year celebration lasts 15 days. Cities and towns schedule different activities for each day that are aimed at bringing people luck and prosperity in every aspect of life. On the last day (day 15) people usually celebrate it by solving riddles that are written on paper lanterns, eating yuanxiao, and releasing lanterns into the sky. 

Regardless if you believe in this or if you are or not a Chinese, I wish you all – Gong xi fa cai!(joy and prosperity in the new year)

Amazing performance

One of the best skate I’ve ever seen in my life. I was cheering for them all the time. They even got a record braking score. I am happy for Aliona Savchenko, since this was her 5th Olympics and she really deserved the gold. And since this was a pair event (team of two), let’s give big kudos to Bruno Massot too, because he did half of the job. And what a job he did…

And NO, I’m not from Germany. But I know how to appreciate a good performance, even if it’s from the opposite team.

Again – Excellent job, guys! What a golden performance!
