Olympic Gold Potential!!!

Everyone is talking about the floor performance that this young lady did.

I am going to post a link to the YouTube video, so if you haven’t seen it yet you will know what I am speaking about.

It’s been on the news, some people still haven’t seen it though and I thought it was so amazing I have to share it.

I am just Felisia Hill saying what’s on my mind, I think this young lady is destined for Olympic Gold is she pursues it! Amazing, amazing, amazing. Perfection!! I cannot say enough about it. It’s just one of those days when everything went right.

Love the music too!

Thanks for reading and sharing and commenting on my blogs. This is new to me but it has been interesting.

Football Frenzy in Pahokee Florida

Pahokee is a city located on the shore of Lake Okeechobee in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States.

Pahokee’s residents, according to the 2010 Census, are 56% African-American; almost all the rest are Hispanic, primarily Mexicans or descendants of Mexicans. In 2018, the Mayor, Kenneth W. Babb, and the other four members of the City Commission are all African-American.[8]

As an isolated community, Pahokee is a town where “everyone knows everybody”, and has a strong sense of community.[9]

Sports is a big focus in Pahokee. The list below gives you an indication of just how much.

It’s remarkable how many professional football players came out of the “Muck.”

Pahokee was incorporated in 1922.[10] The name “Pahokee” means ‘grassy waters’ in the Creek language.[11] Local residents refer to Pahokee as “The Muck”, which refers to the mineral-rich dark soil in which sugar canecitrus fruits, and corn are grown by agribusinesses. In the 1930s, it was known as the “Winter Vegetable Capital of the World”.[9]

The city was severely affected, as were the other communities to the south of the lake, by the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane.[12]

Notable people from Pahokee, Florida Football is a major part of Pahokee. Take a look at this list.
