Ninjas of the Week

5. The United Kingdom

And just like that, the UK voted to leave the European Union. I know the very first thing you're thinking is - what a ninja move! It's been over 40 years since the UK joined the EU and it feels like just overnight they are out. This sneaky move even crippled the stock markets across the globe. What does it leave in it's wake? Only time will tell.

4. Non-Retina MacBook Pro

Like a ninja in the night, the Apple non-retina MacBook Pro has disappeared from shelves across the country. We all knew this day would come I guess. It's been a great run, optical drive laptop, and we remain open-armed for retina displays and solid state hard drives in our laptops from here on out. KIT MU xoxo

3. Cleveland Cavaliers

In the last game of the NBA basketball series, Cleveland defeated the Golden State Warriors, 93-89. This is Cleveland's first major sports title in 52 years. Cavalier means Ninja, right? No? Well it should.

2. Jon Stark

He spearheaded the Battle of the Bastards this week and WOW. If winter wasn't here before, it is now. Jon road fearlessly into that battle and gave it his all despite the numbers and the odds. And once he escaped the trap Ramsay Bolton laid for him, he followed and broke into Winterfell and beat the flesh off of that little bastard. We've haven't been so excited and stressed out watching TV since Breaking Bad. Game of Thrones, you certainly have an arsenal of ninjas.

1. Sansa Stark

Speaking of Game of Thrones and badassery... Sansa Stark finally had her day. She was smart, calculating, and focused. And she finally got to give Ramsay what he deserved and she didn't have to raise a finger. She knew that the only way to rid the kingdom of this evil was to serve him up on a platter for his human eating dogs. NOM.

Ninjas of the Week

It's been a hard week for this country but the bravery and heroism shines through even at the darkest of times. When things seem grim just ask yourself, What Would Ninja Do? Well, here's what some of the top Ninjas of the Week did:

5. WauchulaGhost

When terrorist organizations spout hate and violence across the interwebs there are internet ninjas that sneak in and cut that shit out... and this week in the form of Gay Pride. In the wake of the Orlando Pulse Shooting hacker WauchulaGhost is the rainbow after the storm. Literally. Go get 'em WauchulaGhost. We applaud you.

4. US Men's Soccer Team

For the first time since 2009 the Men's National Soccer Team won a spot in the semifinals of the Copa America Centenario tournament. It wasn't an easy game - yellow cards and red cards were flying around but they got the ball in the net - twice. When the final whistle blew, the US team could claim victory. These ninjas are on to the next round!

3. Arya Stark

We've seen her beaten, bruised, nameless, and blind but she finally turned the tables and exacted revenge and - SPOILER - Arya killed the Waif. And all after a nail-biting chase through the streets of Bravos. She's got a long list of names after this one but we're all very excited that Arya Stark finally fought back. We're looking forward to many more duels in her future.

2. Senator Chris Murphy
When you hear the calls from your constituents and they are fed up, you spring to action. That's what Senator Chris Murphy of Conneticut did this week on the Senate Floor. And he held that floor. For almost 15 hours. This filibuster will go down in US history as the 8th longest filibuster and the issue: Gun Reform. Loopholes beware, Senator Murphy is after you and you can't hide!

1. Orlando's Pulse Club-Goers

Our Ninjas of the Week are the 102 brave and innocent men and women who fell victim to a horrendous hate crime at Pulse in Orlando. May we never forget the victims of this tragedy. We send our strength to their friends and families, and the first responders, doctors, nurses, and personnel who fought for days to save as many lives as possible.
