About Us

The High Screen is a sports and entertainment blog created by Joe Mags, and is the hub for what’s happening right now in sports, popular culture and social trends.

Instead of telling you what you will find on The High Screen, here is what we can guarantee you will never see on our site:

There will be no JAY Z and Beyonce’s divorce rumors. Instead of following rumors about who JAY Z may or may not be rolling around with, you’ll read our take on the music he and Beyonce make, because we will not pretend to know their personal business.

There will be no sports lists about “Which teams have the sexiest cheerleaders.” We are way more interested in touching on what makes Clayton Kershaw the dopest pitcher in baseball and what happened to the Jacksonville Jaguars of the late-2000s.

There will be no posts about what obscure angle Selena Gomez posed in her latest Instagram selfie.We won’t try to squeeze meaning
out of a X-Pro II filter. Which social movement is gaining a following on social media platforms and how it might affect you? We got you.
