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.”

kalidou kouibaly

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly was subjected to deplorable racial abuse by Inter Milan supporters on Boxing Day at the San Siro. The home fans directed repeated racist chants, including monkey noises, at Koulibaly despite multiple announcements made over the venue public address system asking the fans to cease and desist.

According to UEFA, three such warnings were made and went ignored, and thus Inter will now be sanctioned. The Serie A side must play its next two games in front of a completely empty stadium.

Scottie Pippen Lawsuit Against Comedian Lindsay Glazer Hilariously Backfiring

scottie_pippen

On the court, Scottie Pippen is widely considered the second greatest Chicago Bull of all time, behind only Michael Jordan. Off the court he has a reputation (“No Tipping Pippen”) as not being the most awesome guy in the world. (All we know for sure is that he’s an AWFUL interview subject– so BORING!) There are plenty of negative rumors and un-flattering stories about him floating around out there, and some of them became a lot more believable ever since he sued comedian Lindsay Glazer (Woloshin).

Right now, it looks like filing that lawsuit was a huge mistake, as it’s starting to create a PR disaster for ol’ #33. Pippen is suing Glazer and her husband after the couple rented his Ft. Lauderdale mansion, and according to his attorney, totally trashed the place.

College Football Postseason: They Want Chaos and Debate, Never Sensibility and Reason

Mark Twain famously said that history doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme. Today’s college football playoff debate does in fact rhyme with the BCS, and the AP/UPI/Coaches/Insert Poll Name Here era of “deciding” the national champion. When it comes to the college football postseason, it’s all about the click-bait, and conflict, of course moves the needle. 

The same will hold true if/when they go to 8, and then if when they go to 16. Today it’s about #5 and #6 getting shout out. In the future it will be about #9 getting shafted, and then #17 getting left out; if and when it comes to that. It may not because the more teams you add, the fewer the number of deserving teams get jobbed.

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.

By Bill Burke

Today, many people cannot continue their education because they simply cannot afford to pay those high tuition fees, have no time for attending classes, are not willing to move to college, etc. There are many reasons why one ends up without a college or university degree. However, there are those who still want to continue their education no matter what but at a lower cost and from the comfort of their homes. Therefore, they have to look for other options, and online programs can be a pretty good one.

Ryan Leaf EXCLUSIVE: Former QB Opens Up About His Addiction and Recovery

In the first college football game I attended as a student, the visiting team scored an 80-yard touchdown pass on the very first play from scrimmage. The visitors, Washington State, would go on to win and play in the Rose Bowl against that year’s eventual national champions, Michigan. The home team, my alma mater of Illinois, wouldn’t even win a single game that year.

More than 20 years later, I’m sitting in a Cadillac Escalade, rolling down Chicago’s Michigan Avenue and the quarterback who threw that 80-yard TD pass, Ryan Leaf, is now granting me an exclusive interview; and the topic of football is ancillary to the purpose of our discourse.
