Before the Cristiano Ronaldo news broke, it was actually Alvaro Morata who was the dominant storyline in the Manchester United and Real Madrid news worlds. There were reports that Morata was nearing a deal to join United, but today those claims have been proven to be too presumptive.

Getting back to CR7, he is furious right now, to the point he wishes to leave Spain, a country where he stands accused of defrauding tax authorities to the tune of €14.7m.

2017 NBA Draft: Several Reasons this “Event” is Receiving Almost No Buzz

Share

A few years ago, a Twitter user (and we only use the term “Twitter user” because we literally cannot locate the Tweet now) posted “the NFL Draft is porn, the NBA Draft is comfort food and the MLB Draft is stamp collecting.”

He did not even bother analogizing the NHL Draft, and he was right not to do so. Here in 2017, his hilariously accurate at the time metaphors are now a bit off. While the NFL Draft is still a huge event it has definitely peaked in relevance. Its importance was overrated anyway. The MLB Draft is still certainly about as exciting as stamp collecting, but the NBA Draft is definitely not comfort food.

It’s more like a mediocre frozen dinner or run-of-the-mill cafeteria fare.

All Eyez On Me Gives Younger Gen-Xers, Older Millenials Chance to Relive Youth

All Eyez on Me, the much hyped Tupac Amaru Shakur biopic that opened on what would have been Shakur’s 46th birthday, had a mixed bag opening weekend. It did well at the box office, finishing as the third highest grossing film ($27m) behind only Cars 3 ($53m) and Wonder Woman ($40m).

However, it’s been ABSOLUTELY EVISCERATED by critics. The only real explanation for this is the generation gap between hip-hop fans and most movie critics. All Eyez on Me, named for the first and best ever hip-hop double album ever (and arguably the best rap album of all time), is yet another example of the ’90s nostalgia craze taking over pop culture.
