DJOKOVIC OUSTED FROM US OPEN BY DEFAULT FOR HITTING A LINES WOMAN!

Just when you thought nothing could stop DJOKO from winning the US OPEN, accident or no accident, according to the rule book, an apologetic DJOKOVIC was disqualified after hitting a lines woman in the throat in his match yesterday versus BUSTA.

In other Sports News, the GREEK FREAK ended up playing GAME 4, but had to leave early with an aggravated Ankle injury and MIDDLETON saved the BUCKS from elimination and a sweep by the MIAMI HEAT!

LEBRON & AD took care of the ROCKETS to level the series at 1-1. Stay tuned!

Stay tuned for more!!!

The NBA Playoffs Return with Players Working On and Off the Court for Justice

After the NBA Playoffs historically came to a pause last Wednesday with Players refusing to Play as yet another Black man, JACOB BLAKE, was shot unjustly in the back by the Police, LEBRON, CP3, NBA Players reached out to BARACK OBAMA for advice.

OBAMA advised Players to play and maximize this opportunity to get their desired action items. Play resumed on Saturday under Commitments from the NBA & NBPA.

Pictured above is DENVER NUGGETS’ JAMAL MURRAY’S shoes. He says even though they are gone, they help him to find strength and to keep fight in this world.

The entire UTAH JAZZ team has now been registered to vote. Their DONOVAN MITCHELL has pledged $45k to the education of Jacob Blake’s children, which has been matched.
Countless efforts have been made by these NBA Players on and off the court. I applaud them and stand with them.

LUKA DON made his series Debut at just 21yrs before being eliminated and how he is already targeted by players.

We have a Game 7! Who you got? Murray or Mitchell? NUGGETS or JAZZ?

CELTICS are up 1 on the RAPTORS! KEMBA!

Are you ready for LAKERS vs CLIPPERS?! Stay tuned! 🏀

Plays of Last Night in the NBA Playoffs on what would have been Kobe’s 42nd Birthday!

Kobe couldn’t have asked for a better Birthday. The Lakers won Saturday night to ring it in and the future of the NBA, all under 25yrs were ballin’! Two 50-point games and a 40-point triple double! #ripmamba

Luka Dončić (21 years old), who I consider to be the future of the NBA, scored 43 points and a triple double, leading the Mavs to level the series 2-2 versus the LA Clippers with a hell of a Buzzer-Beater! If you missed it or would just love to see it again, watch here:

Check out Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs) in action too here:

Who are your top 3 players under 25 in the Playoffs right now in order?!… Suga’s got:
1. Luka Dončić (21 yrs)
2. Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs)
3. Jayson Tatum (22 yrs)

The NBA PLAYOFFS begin TODAY! Who you got?!

The NBA Playoffs begin today and Suga’s got her picks.

See Today’s and Tomorrow’s Schedules here:

Suga actually calls LeBron and the LAKERS to WIN it all with the CLIPPERS as their biggest contenders.
So the LAKERS, ROCKETS, NUGGETS and CLIPPERS should come out of the 1st round. As usual, the WEST is stacked with great teams. The matchups should be very competitive.

The BUCKS and RAPTORS should come out of the 1st round for the EAST, with a toss up between the PACERS and HEAT and the CELTICS vs 76ers.

Let’s see how they all handle the NBA Playoffs from one place in Orlando Florida, the NBA Bubble with no ‘visitors’. It will be like the Survivor.

Stay tuned and Follow @sugalifestyle on Instagram and Facebook, as Instagram stories with updates will be posted and shared to Facebook! I love this game! 🏀

Champions of the Weekend in Sports! Why did Serena and Federer Lose?!

Ladies Wimbledon Final

IMG_20190715_011034
Simona Halep happily embraces her 1st Wimbledon Trophy last Saturday.

Simona Halep absolutely dominated Serena Williams in the Ladies Wimbledon Final last Saturday, winning her 1st Wimbledon title in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2. This is Halep’s 2nd Grand Slam title after winning the French Open last year.

Why did Serena lose?

Serena Williams is usually the favourite in a Grand Slam final, no matter who she meets. This is so because she is the Greatest Player of all time (G.O.A.T) in the open era. Her total of 23 Grand Slam singles titles marks the record for the most Grand Slam tournament wins in the Open Era, and is second on the all-time list behind Margaret Court who has 24.

As Serena struggles to find her groove after having a baby and tries to play injury free at 37 years old, 24 Grand Slam titles is looking harder and harder to achieve.

On Saturday, Serena should have been the underdog. Simona Halep, also a former World no. 1, has been looking solid mentally and physically, playing the best tennis of her life. For years, Simona has had the physical ability to win, but seemed to have trouble following through mentally in Grand Slam Tournaments. After finally winning her 1st Grand Slam title last year at the French Open, it became more and more obvious that her focus and confidence were improving. For this Wimbledon tournament and final, she was mentally ready and physically fit to win.

Suga can’t say the same about Serena. It is the best Serena has looked since having her baby, but she is still not at the level of fitness she used to be and it is the 1st major tournament she hasn’t pulled out of this year due to an injury. She was just starting to get back into her groove, but was not ready to win versus an opponent of Simona Halep’s standard. She also got the easy half of the draw.

24 is still possible, but Serena wasn’t ready and I know she won’t be giving up any time soon.

Kudos and Congrats to Simona Halep for executing a brilliant win!

Wimbledon Men’s Final

20190715_010629
World no. 1, Novak Djokovic gives his 5th Wimbledon Trophy some love after defeating Roger Federer yesterday.

World no. 1 Novak Djokovic won his 5th Wimbledon title in an epic 5-setter versus the Greatest of All Time, 37-year old, Roger Federer yesterday, 7-6,1-6,7-6,4-6,13-12. It was the 1st Men’s Wimbledon Final to go to a 5th set tiebreaker!

Why did Federer lose?

Federer did everything right and everything he could do at age 37. His movement showed no indication of his age and his serve was on point, but he just seemed to have lost this very important cat and mouse game, which happened to be the Wimbledon final. He would have been the oldest gentleman to win if he did.

Before the final, he was tied with Djokovic for tie-breaks, but Djokovic changed that by winning the 2 tie-breaks in Sets 1 and 3. So with the 1st Wimbledon Men’s final to ever reach a 5th set tie-break, Djokovic had the advantage to win. Also, with such a high percentage of net court points won, the miss Roger had by the net during the 5th set tie-break was pretty costly. Who knows what the outcome would have been if he made that shot?

Anyhow, this final ranks as one of the best finals I have ever seen. High quality tennis from the Greatest and 3rd Greatest Players of all time, with Federer on 20 Grand slams and Djokovic now on 16. It was a treat!

Congrats on your 16th Grand slam title Novak!

ICC Cricket World Cup Final

IMG_20190715_015110
Host team, England celebrate their epic win vs  New Zealand yesterday in the ICC Cricket World Cup Final.

England won its first ICC Cricket World Cup defeating New Zealand at Lord’s in London yesterday in one of the most dramatic matches ever as it all came down to a Super Over!

England tied New Zealand’s score of 241 in 50 overs, resulting in a Super Over to determine the winner. A Super Over is when both teams play a single over (6 balls) and the team that scores the most  runs is declared the winner.

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler batted first for England, while Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill batted for New Zealand. The result? Both scored 15 runs! So then what?!

England scored the most boundaries in the match, giving them the win!

Well played New Zealand and Congrats to England!

Happy Monday Suga Bears and be Champions this week!

The NBA Playoffs are on and Poppin!

IMG_20190416_071749_074.jpg

The NBA PLAYOFFS is on and poppin! Who you got?!
On the EAST side, the BUCKS have been blazing, the CELTICS are a dark horse, usually a playoff team and the RAPTORS should reach conference finals, but tend to choke choke choke.
On the WEST side, WARRIORS are still strong but Cousins went down last night with what may seem like a quad injury. The CLIPPERS erased a 31-pt deficit to beat them! James Harden and the ROCKETS always play well during the season, but will they finally deliver?! The TRAIL BLAZERS have been consistent this year unlike a disjointed OKC and I expect the SPURS to upset the young NUGGETS.

Stay tuned! I LOVE THIS GAME!

Today’s spotlight hails from Kingston, Jamaica! I tease Gabrielle all the time because I seriously don’t know what she can’t do. Read how she’s managed to escape to her creative side while still working in the hardworking medical field.

Growing up, I always wanted to be a Doctor (Obstetrician) and do Art on the side. I eventually realized that even though the income would be great after the initial struggle of paying off a hefty student loan, I would not have the time on my hands that I would desire to be the Free Spirit that I am. I still entered the field of Health Care as a Radiologic Technologist. It’s a skill and I enjoy the field. But it wasn’t enough for me as a young adult who just started working in 2010, that used to be the President of at least 2 service Clubs, while sitting on the committee of others, also engaging in modern dance and other sporting activities. I felt like I also started life 3 years behind my high school peers who did not do a 2nd Degree and who were fortunate enough to have their parents pay their way through tertiary education for them. While I had not one, but two degrees worth of Student Loans.

My walls were empty when I moved out on my own into my apartment and I said, ‘Why buy paintings when I can paint them myself?’. I officially started my company, GW Art with seasonal Collections, that has grown so much since then and still has some way to go.
I started to help a friend train her Boot camp (aerobics) class in 2011 too. She had to leave the country for a year and I did so well administering and training classes that I eventually branched out on my own. I got certified in both Personal Training and Sports Nutrition. After a timid start to do this on my own, I thrived by seeing positive results in my clients and being a part of and changing person’s lives. I am now confident and in demand in the Fitness Industry in Jamaica.

I currently find ways to express my 3 fields along with Hobbies, which include Restaurant Reviews, Sports and more on my Website, http://www.sugalifestyle.com. This continuously inspires me and makes me feel like I can branch out even more! #blackentrepreneurship #blackexcellence

Happy New Year from Suga!

Happy New Year Suga Bears!

2016 was certainly a year of shockers but great things happened as well and Jamaica continued to make a stamp on the track creating more history.

Thanks for keeping up to date with Suga and for sharing my views on Restaurants/Bars, What’s Hot, Sports, Health & Fitness, Charities and more. Suga may not always be sweet but that is life and when others aren’t honest, Suga will be keeping it real with you. It’s with the hope of gracious acceptance to criticism and ultimately an improvement from various establisments to deliver the best standard and quality the customers deserve.

I loved that some of you had a GW Art Christmas! The Christmas Collection for GW Art sold off and I am truly grateful for all of your encouragement, kind words and support. 

Let us look forward to what this year will bring. Work hard but play hard too. 

Wishing you all a year of good Health, Happiness, Success and Prosperity!
