The Ghost Of Michael Jackson Saved The Billboard Music Awards From Abject Mediocrity.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, my wife and I ended up watching the Billboard Music Awards 2014 last night. When I say "for reasons unbeknownst to me", what I actually mean is that I didn't know 90% of the artists that "performed" last night. Show More Summary

Reigning Heisman Trophy Winner Busted For Stealing Crab Legs.

You can't make this sht up, so naturally I'm just gonna assume it's real. I mean, seriously, who steal crab legs in the first place? If you're hungry, I could think of a million other foods that would be more nourishing than crab legs. Show More Summary

I don't agree with this guy most of the time either, but he's spot-on with this commentary.

The NBA Lowers The Boom On Donald Sterling. Suspended FO' LIFE!!!

I hope Donald Sterling is a big fan of Mack 10, because there's a song the venerable West Coast Gangster Rapper made that's perfect for the ruling the NBA just threw down.A news conference by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on the Donald Sterling controversy is underway. Show More Summary

The Problem With Donald Sterling (And The NBA).

I'm happy this morning. Very happy. My Wizards are up 3-1 on the dumpster fire that is the Chicago Bulls, and we can close things out Tuesday night, which would be our first series win in a decade. So yeah, my sporting focus should be there, but of course there was a(n arguably) bigger story from The Association this weekend. Show More Summary

Why Cliven Bundy's Views On Slavery Aren't Really That Shocking.

We've seen the resurgence of "in your face racism" with the election of our first black President. It's almost like some people are so upset at the (perceived, but by no means real) shift in power that occurred in November 2008 they just seem emboldened in their racism and feel no need to even hold back or pretend otherwise.

The State Of Georgia Now Allows You To Pack Heat At Church. Yes, Church.

I grew up in the South. There were plenty of things about growing up there that I now appreciate in retrospect. The family-centric culture. The polite people. The slow, leisurely pace of everything. of course, there's plenty that I hated about growing up there as well, and that's why I'll never return, ever, ever. Show More Summary

Is Jay-Z A Five Percenter?!? Of Course Not.

I'm no Jay-Z fan, much less a Jay-Z apologist. Real talk, while I don't deny the man's got some lyrical ability, I've always found his ascent to the top of the hip-hop food chain a little bewildering. He just sorta happened to be in the right place at the right time (RIP Biggie) and took the ball and ran with it. Show More Summary
