lukas podolski

Alt-right website Breitbart .com has had more than its share of controversy over the years. They certainly have gotten a lot wrong along the way too. This time, their mistake was to include a picture of former Arsenal FC flop Lukas Podolski in a story entitled “Spanish Police Crack Gang Moving Migrants on Jet-Skis.”

Podolski, a Polish born German international who now plays his club ball for J-League side Vissel Kobe, has absolutely nothing to do the subject matter of the story. The only connection he has to the Breitbart “article” is the fact that he’s on a jetski in the photo.

chris christie

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no more worries about approval ratings. In his next career, the ratings he’ll be pre-occupied with will pertain to radio listenership. Christie is going through the motions as he finishes out his final term, blissfully aware that it no longer matters what the public thinks of him as a politician.

The Fourth of July Holiday week, in which Beachgate had a heavy presence in the news cycle, showcased just how much Chris Christie doesn’t a give a you-know-what. Well, in his next career, being hated could help, as long as the haters tune in.

The Chicago Cubs visited the White House for a second time yesterday, and this time the occasion had very limited media access. Limitations aside, this photo of Cubs outfielder Albert Almora seemingly extending his middle finger, albeit downward emerged and briefly created some uproar.

Of course, if Almora was actually “flipping the bird” to President Trump, he would have had his hand turned upward, not downward. Have a look:
