Chicago Cubs Partner with Vile Sinclair to Launch their Own Network

On one level, this makes perfect sense. Sinclair Broadcast Group, a vile machine that pumps out MAGA propaganda, is partnering with the Chicago Cubs, a franchise owned by a family with, well you already know what Papa Ricketts is all about.

Just in case you forgot about Joe Ricketts’ donations to Donald Trump, he reminded you who he is in the recent leaked emails showcasing his bigotry and Islamophobia. At 6 a.m. central time this morning (because hey, let’s make sure everybody in Chicago starts their hump day with this news), the long discussed Cubs Network plans were finally made official.

Revisiting “Let’s Ram It,” the L.A. Rams Sexually Suggestive 1986 Music Video

With the Los Angeles Rams now back in the Super Bowl, it’s the perfect time to revisit their 1986 music video “Let’s Ram It,” which didn’t exactly specialize in the art of subtlety.

Remember, when the L.A. Rams recorded this monstrosity it was a very different time and political climate. When the Rams moved back to L.A. a couple of years ago, the internet’s virtual time capsule was dug up and “Let’s Ram it” was written about in several different publications.  [Read more…]

By Joseph Connolly

Ever since competitive gaming came on the scene, it has been widely treated with suspicion by the traditional sporting world. Many commentators stated that it was little more than a sedentary activity, and had little to do with sporting excellence.

Jenny McCarthy Ripped on Twitter on New Year’s Eve Again; 25 of the Best Tweets

jenny-mccarthy

If we could find the tweet that we saw several years ago about Jenny McCarthy, we would certainly publish it here today. The Twitter posting perfectly summated everything that she’s about, and it said basically: “I wonder if Jenny McCarthy ponders her lasting legacy at all: ‘I was nude for awhile, then I convinced a bunch of parents to not to believe in science and then let their kids die from easy preventable diseases- nailed it!'”

Jenny McCarthy is a top trending term on Twitter just once a year, and it comes on New Year’s Eve when she co-hosts ABC’s Dick Clark’s Rocking Eve. It’s astounding that ABC keeps giving her this gig in an age when media figures and celebrities often lose their jobs over minor mistakes. Jenny McCarthy and her joke of a career is a “major mistake.”

In Die Hard, What Christmas Eve Bowl Game has Notre Dame vs USC?

die hard christmas movie

This weekend begins the bowl season, and with it the crappy bowl games that very few of us care about. Saturday brings us a cadre of bowl games that are just as awful as whatever bowl game hosted Notre Dame and USC in the classic Christmas film “Die Hard.”

The total number of bowl games has multiplied at an absurd rate these past few decades, but one truth still remains- real bowl games don’t start until after Christmas, and for the most part well after Christmas. Genuinely desirable bowl games still adhere to tradition, and take place on New Year’s. (For a preview of #14 Notre Dame vs #17 LSU go to this link)

raheem-sterling

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has made an extremely strong response to his being racially abused by a Chelsea supporter during his side’s 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge yesterday. Both police and Chelsea Football Club are investigating the incident, and now Sterling has taken to social media and made his first public remarks about the incident.

Raheem Sterling posted a deep and profound message on his official Instagram account where he hit out not at the Chelsea fan, but at media coverage in general. Sterling posted photos of Daily Mail stories about teammates Tosin Adarabioyo and Phil Foden in order to convey an example of the difference between how white and black players are covered by the media.

Willy Wonka has nothing on this golden ticket. Someone in South Carolina, who picked the numbers 5-28-62-65-70, with a Mega Ball #5, has just beaten the odds, and won $1.537 billion. Last night, a South Carolinian (or someone visiting the Palmetto state) beat the odds (one in 302,575,350) and won the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The winner has not claimed the prize as of yet, and it could be weeks or months until he/she does. If they’re intelligent, they will do all they can to protect their anonymity.
