Rapper Loyle Carner Has “Best Day of his Life” at LFC’s Anfield


Rap star Loyle Carner is currently on tour in Ireland, Scotland and northern England, where he just happened upon an off day in Liverpool. What to do with a day that has no work obligations? Take a trip to Anfield Road of course.

Carner tweeted at the official LFC account, but they were not his route inside. A supporters podcast named The Anfield Wrap came through for Loyle Carner, and that led to an experience that inspired him to say “dreams really come true.”

Carner later added: “It’s the best day of my life. I just want to be here for the rest of my life.” The very next day Loyle Carner played a show in Liverpool and you know that concert was just completely off the heezy.

LFC are currently tied 1-1 with Newcastle United midway through the second half at St. James Park.

Move over Washington Generals, because the Harlem Globetrotters may have a new foil.

It might be Liverpool FC and their Manager Jurgen Klopp, as the German made a remark in his post match press conference last weekend which triggered the basketball entertainment team and trick shot specialists.

Liverpool won 3-2 at Leicester City in Premier League competition last weekend, but again the Reds showcased their serious issues in central defense, and Klopp again was left to lament about his problems  in the back line.

ESPN College Gameday: How it Went From Transcendent to Unwatchable


To pinpoint what’s so wrong with ESPN College Gameday in 2017, there are a couple different places from which you can start. You can begin with ESPN’s horrible bungling of the Jemele Hill and Robert Lee situations, and go from there. The same principle, that of “let’s try to never hurt anyone’s feelings ever, no matter what the cost, because hurt feelings means upset sponsors” applies across the board.

ESPN should have never apologized for what Jemele Hill said about Donald Trump.

Bill Cowher Strongly Calls Out Colin Kaepernick; but Misses Some Points


Former Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Bill Cowher made a lot of great points as he called out Colin Kaepernick this morning on The NFL Today. However, he also greatly missed the mark on a few more. The NFL pundit is spot on when he asks Kaepernick why he’s remaining silent, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with querying about the contract specifics, and if those contract requirements stand in the way to Kap’s getting a new gig.

Also, points to Cowher for ending his soap box session with “prove me wrong.” In this era of people not taking accountability for what they say (or truth or facts for that matter), he goes out of his way to take ownership.

Tomi Lahren Fails Upwards, Officially Joins FOX News Channel


Since her dismissal from Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze (it is one word, not two for some reason) network, Tomi Lahren has obviously been going out of her way to move away from her alt-right reputation. Lahren has obviously been trying to rebrand herself as a far right pundit, somewhat closer to the mainstream discussion, instead of extremist ideology with which she is currently synonymous.

As expected, she now joins FOX News Channel, which is a natural fit for her worldview, which often syncs up with the platforms and beliefs of white nationalists.
