Just when LaVar Ball revealed he was the world's biggest a-hole.....




...meet a bigger one.

Loser Kathy Griffin with President Trump's severed head.

This mutt will never work again, doesn't she think Trump knows someone?

More importantly what about his child Barron? What harm has this moron done to him?

Burn in hell Griffin.

This is yet another example for you youngsters out there....THINK before you act.




Congratulations Hialeah High's Paola Dominguez-Castro

Fordham University Water Polo Announces Recruiting Class for 2017 Season




BRONX, N.Y. -- Fordham University water polo coach Bill Harris announced the addition of four players for the 2017 season.

Joining the Rams next season will be Massimiliano Mirarchi (Rome, Italy/Liceo Scientifico Torricelli (Whittier College)), Phillip Wang (San Jose, Calif./Bellarmine College Prep), August Weyandt (Carlsbad, Calif./Carlsbad), and Sam Wheeler (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Chadwick).

Mirarchi, a 6-1 attacker, brings a wealth of both collegiate and international experience to the Rams, after graduating from Whitter College in California in May 2017 and playing for the U15 and U17 Italian National Teams.  He just completed three seasons at Whittier, where he was a three-time Division III All-America and an Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) Scholar-Athlete  selection from 2014-16.  He led all Division III players in goals and steals in 2015, setting a single season school record for steals with 92, while having the second-highest single season goal total with 116.  He followed with 97 goals last season to go with 43 assists and 42 steals, as he was named First Team All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) for the third straight year.  A two-time team Most Valuable Player, Mirarchi finished his three seasons at Whittier with 291 goals, 109 assists, and 177 steals.

In the classroom, he was a member of the Dean's and President's List each semester, a three-year Scholar-Athlete Award winner and a member of Sigma Beta Delta, the International Honor Society for Business.

Prior to his time at Whittier, Mirarchi was a member of the U15 and U17 Italian National Teams, which won gold at the U15 10 National Tournament in Serbia, the U17 8 Nations Tournament in Croatia, the U17 16 National Tournament in Italy, and the U17 European National Team Championship in Germany.

Harris on Mirarchi: "Massimiliano brings international experience to our program. He is an intelligent player, who will help us in all facets of the game.  I am confident Massi will be an impact player for us at both ends of the pool."

Wang, a 5-10 driver, was a three-year member of the varsity water polo team at Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose, Calif., where he served as team captain.  He was a 2017 Second Team All-American after earning First Team All-Western Catholic Athletic League (WCAL) and Central Coast Section (CCS) honors.  He also won the 2016 Joe Keenan Most Inspirational Award at Bellarmine.  For club water polo, Wang played for both DACA Water Polo and San Jose Water Polo, where he was the DACA team captain in 2015 and 2017.  Academically, he earned USA Water Polo All-Academic standing three times from 2014-16.

Harris on Wang: "With the loss of RJ Simmons, Phillip will help us fill the void on offense.  He is a smart player with experience, playing on a solid Bellarmine team.  He will be well-prepared for the next level of competition."

Weyandt, a 6-3 two-meter player, was a four-year varsity water polo player at Carlsbad High School in Calif..  A team co-captain as a senior, he was a two-time First Team All-Avocado West League selection (2015-16) and was listed as a 2016 Player to Watch by the San Diego Union Tribune.  He helped Carlsbad to two All-San Diego CIF Division 1 Championships in 2013 and 2014.  Weyandt also played club for Carlsbad Water Polo.  In the classroom, he was a four-year Scholar Athlete and an Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar with Honors.  He also received USA Water Polo All-Academic honors and was named to the San Diego Union Tribune All-Academic Water Polo Team.

Harris on Weyandt – "Weyandt has size and strength, and will work out of the two-meter position backing up Ian Watson and Grant Keesling in that roll. Being a left-handed attacker, he will be an asset that will bring additional opportunities to our offense."

Wheeler, a 6-1 utility player, was a four-year varsity water polo player at the Chadwick School in Palos Verdes, Calif..  A senior year captain, he was a three-time team MVP and First Team All-League selection.  During his senior campaign, he was selected as the league's MVP and earned All-South Bay honors for the second time.  In addition to his play at Chadwick, Wheeler played for the Palos Verdes Water Polo Club, which won the 2017 KAP7 Tournament Championship, while taking second at the Turbo Cup.

Harris on Wheeler: "Sam has size and speed.  During his high school career, he had the opportunity to play at Chadwick for former Olympian Robert Lynn. He will add needed depth to our program and will contribute all four years here in the Bronx."

Mahalo Ke Akua



1 year ago today I made the hardest decision of my life. I was not in a good place, my mentality was focused on the negative NEVER positive. I had to move 4000 miles away, completely isolate myself, have near death experiences both in and out of the water to truly find out who I am as a person, a person I'm proud of. I'm done pushing myself to impress others. I'm pushing myself for ME. Hawaii has an energy. A special energy from the mountains to the ocean, something that cannot be explained. A connection to Mother Nature. Mahalo Ke Akua. I would not be here without YOU. Also @jack_martin18 @dad @mom@ant_vision @clydehyatt cause I honestly don't know what the f@ck I would be doing without surfing or skateboarding.
