Florida State Quarterback De’Andre Johnson was charged with battery last month for punching a woman in the face at a local Tallahassee bar. Johnson was subsequently suspended after the charge and will hopefully (and that’s a great BIG hope being that this is FSU) be removed from the team. Video obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat is pretty damning.
Soccer Man Andrea Pirlo has officially joined New York City FC along with Euro stars David Villa and Frank Lampard.
USWNT ambushed, smashed, annihilated Japan’s hopes for a repeat performance of their 2011 Women’s World Cup Championship..in the first 15 minutes. They would eventually end the bloodbath at 5-2 in an unprecedented show of offensive firepower ever to see a women’s final before.
Miami Judge Mindy Glazer took some time to share a few positive words to the defendant standing across from her when she realized that he was a childhood friend from middle school. Justice Glazer reminds us that not everybody that breaks the law is a bad person, and that sometimes they just get off the track somehow.

Let’s get something straight off-the-bat: Kobe is the greatest of his era. He transcended the game long before social media could have elevated him to god status. You know this because probably half of your friends in middle school and high school were Lakers fans, and STILL are to this day. You know this because girls would have cut-out magazine pictures of Kobe in their locker and their binders. You know this because #8 was the number always taken in gym class. You know this because you saw purple and gold EVERYWHERE during those years. Even your mom knows who Kobe is.
Macy’s announced today that they are dropping Donald Trump’s clothing line in response to his remarks on Mexican immigrants. As we mentioned in an earlier post, NBC cut ties with Trump over the same thing.
This has been your update on Donald Trump’s political free fall.
Chris Webber. Peja Stojakovic. Mike Bibby. Vlade Divak. To a 14 year-old Mavericks fan like I was, their names may as well had been Boogie-Man, Demon, Satan, and well…Vlade. THESE were the Sacramento Kings. Good for 100 a night, put your paycheck on it. I hated them. I hated them because they were GOOD. I hated how their fans would bang those stupid cowbells, and I hated that they couldn’t kill the Lakers when they had the chance.
