  • Kicker swagger: Justin Tucker hits three first-half FGs

    By Kateb →


    Swag is in short supply for kickers across the NFL right now. After all, we're just one week removed from the darkest day in history for the game's most maligned position.

    This all makes Justin Tucker stand out even more. The Ravens kicker has been automatic all season long, a perfect 26-for-26 on field goals and 14-14 on PATs. In the first half against the Bengals on Sunday, Tucker reminded the football world why he's the best kicker in the game, drilling three field goals from beyond 50 yards, including this 57-yard bomb:

    Tucker's "Are you not entertained?" celebration is a nice touch as well. Your move, Marquette King.

    By the way, having a special teams ace like Tucker represents a legitimate weapon in the sloppy AFC North. If the Ravens take the division, Justin Tucker will be a major reason why.
  • Gilmore Girls revival cast reveals how they got back into character

    By Kateb → Friday, November 25, 2016

    In the details With Netflix’s upcoming four-part Gilmore Girls revival, titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a large number of the show’s original cast members were given the opportunity to reinhabit the characters they said goodbye to years ago. However, getting back into character after eight years is an experience every actor approached differently.

    As far as Lauren Graham and Kelly Bishop were concerned, snapping back into the mindsets of their Stars Hollow — or Hartford, Connecticut — counterpart was simple. “To pick it up again felt really kind of inevitable,” Graham tells EW of playing Lorelai. “[It was] definitely easy in most ways.”

    Gilmore Girls Set in a storybook Connecticut town populated by an eclectic mix of dreamers, artists and everyday folk, this multigenerational drama about family and friendship centers around Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Rory. Lorelai


  • Watch Darius Slay pick off Sam Bradford to give the Lions a Thanksgiving win

    By Kateb → Thursday, November 24, 2016

    The Detroit Lions came away with yet another last-second win on Thanksgiving Day against the Minnesota Vikings — and this time, they got a big helping hand from Sam Bradford.

    After Lions QB Matthew Stafford drove his team down the field for a game-tying field goal, Bradford had a chance to counter with a game-winning two-minute drill of his own. The Vikings looked to be in good position after converting a third down near midfield, only for the play to be called back due to an illegal formation. On the very next snap, Bradford looked to the outside, only to find Lions CB Darius Slay.

  • WWE Survivor Series 2016 results: Goldberg shocks by dominating Lesnar

    By Kateb → Monday, November 21, 2016


    A good show overall, 2016 Survivor Series provided one of the most shocking endings in recent memory as Goldberg, out of big-time professional wrestling since 2004, beat down WWE's top box office draw Brock Lesnar in just 84 seconds.
    This is literally all that happened in the match: Lesnar lifted up Goldberg. Goldberg pushed Lesnar to the ground. Goldberg then speared Lesnar twice in a row and opted not to attempt a pinfall either time. Goldberg finished it by lifting Lesnar into the air, hitting the Jackhammer and earning the 1-2-3.
    The finish was absolutely shocking considering the expectation Sunday was that Lesnar, who is on a massive contract with WWE, would get his revenge on Goldberg after falling 12 years ago at WrestleMania XX. Goldberg was believed to be on a one-match contact with WWE as he promotes the WWE2K17 video game, though that may not necessarily be the case considering the finish of this match.
    Check out two-thirds of the match below and the rest of your WWE Survivor Series results after the break.

  • Mike Pence Saw ‘Hamilton.’ The Cast Had Something to Say

    By Kateb →
    “Hamilton,” the hit Broadway musical about colonial rebels shaping the future of an unformed country, took an even more political turn at the end of its performance on Friday night.

    With Vice President-elect Mike Pence attending the show, the cast used the opportunity to make a statement emphasizing the need for the new administration of President-elect Donald J. Trump, a Republican, to work on behalf of all Americans.

    As the play ended, the actor who played Aaron Burr, Brandon Victor Dixon, acknowledged that Mr. Pence was in the audience, thanked him for attending and added, “We hope you will hear us out.”

    “We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”
  • Sanders to Trump: 'We are going to hold you to account'

    By Kateb → Thursday, November 17, 2016

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) vowed Wednesday to hold Trump to his promises to strengthen the working class — and fight against some of his more controversial positions and rhetoric.

    “I say to Mr. Trump, from the bottom of my heart ... Mr. Trump, we are not going backwards in terms of bigotry, we are going to go forward in creating a non-discriminatory society," Sanders said during his speech and Q&A at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

    During his talk, the Vermont senator also said that he saw some room for cooperation between the GOP and the Democrats, particularly when it comes to strengthening the middle class. 
    Sanders argued that Trump should be held accountable for his promises to support the struggling working families in America.
    "Mr. Trump said a whole lot of things, a whole lot of things and sometimes I think they would just come off the top of his head. Toward the end of the campaign he was actually using the term that many Democrats use. He was saying that he was going to be the champion of the American working
    class,"

    With less than a minute to play and the Memphis Grizzlies trailing by two against the Los Angeles Clippers, big man Marc Gasol helped the Grizzlies come up with a big stop to regain possession. But Memphis still needed a big shot either to force overtime or somehow pull out a win in an incredibly exciting game.

    Gasol answered the bell with a huge 3-pointer from the corner — then channeled his inner Conor McGregor with a victory strut to halfcourt:
  • Nicki Minaj smacks down Donald Trump in 'Black Barbies' remix of 'Black Beatles'

    By Kateb → Tuesday, November 15, 2016

  • ‘The Walking Dead’ recap: Apocalypse now

    By Kateb → Sunday, November 13, 2016
    Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse. Led by police officer Rick Grimes, his family and a group of other survivors find themselves constantly on the move in search of a safe and secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and Rick discovers that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the
    zombies walking among them.

    ‘The Walking Dead’ recap: Apocalypse now New details The heroes of The Walking Dead are faced with a new reality. They weren’t as strong as they thought they were. They’re stuck following the orders of a man they hate and fear. They’ve lost loved ones and fear they’ll lose more.

    What was that thing about art imitating life?

    As we enter the fourth episode of the season, the Negan problem isn't going away. Jeffrey Dean Morgan's villain is still just as boring, just as non-threatening as he was before. An extra-long episode that was basically just the IKEA trip from Hell doesn't really do anything to further his character. The only thing we really learned during "Service" is that the Saviors are more trolls than anything else. They do things for the lulz, not for any real gain. That's why they just burned the mattresses instead of bringing them back to their compound (where Negan is sleeping on a twin, you'd really think he'd enjoy a nice pillow-top).

    Does that make them scary? No. It makes them annoying. It makes them grating. And by consequence, it makes the show boring and exhausting. And it's a shame, because this show has at points been one of the most exciting on television. The answer is not more Negan. The answer is far, far less Negan.

    Spoiler alert! The following contains spoilers for the The Walking DeadSeason 7 Episode 4, "Service." To read our recap of Episode 3, click here.

    In 2005, Dave Chappelle "David Khari Webber "Dave" Chappelle is an American stand-up comedian" surprised everyone when he left his show on Comedy Central, walking away from a $50 million contract.

    Since then he’s been thought of as a ”renegade to some, a lunatic to others, but most of all, an enigma.”

    He never left comedy entirely, although three years ago he began to resurface more consistently, first with a radio appearance, then a stand-up tour. Recently he’s performed in New York City, and tonight he made his debut as host of sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live.

    The show opened with Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton performing a rendition of Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah.”

    San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has long commented on various political matters, and has coached a multi-cultural roster that has featured players from dozens of countries. Popovich was asked about the results of Tuesday's presidential election and had the following to say, via the San Antonio-Express News and Project Spurs:


    "Right now I'm just trying to formulate thoughts. It's too early. I'm just sick to my stomach. Not basically because the Republicans won or anything, but the disgusting tenor and tone and all of the comments that have been xenophobic, homophobic, racist, misogynistic."

    Hillary Clinton 4, Donald Trump 2, Gary Johnson 1 -- and a single write-in surprise: Mitt Romney.

    With eight residents voting and five times as many reporters watching, Dixville Notch has spoken.
    On a frigid night in the largely forgotten region about halfway between the Maine and Canadian borders, the small northern New Hampshire town came alive for several minutes of kitschy democratic conflict. This latest round of wee hours voting extends a tradition that traces back more than a half-century.
    With the results in from Dixville Notch this long-awaited Election Day is officially underway, and sure as the Earth turns on its axis, the end of the 2016 presidential contest seems impossibly closer.

    4- votes for Hillary Clinton/ Tim Kaine

    2- votes for Donald Trump/ Mike Pence

    1- Gary Johnson/Bill Weld

  • 'Walking Dead': Norman Reedus on Daryl's guilt and his big moment with Negan

    By Kateb → Sunday, November 6, 2016
    It's been hard for "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus to watch someone else wear Daryl Dixon's leather jacket and carry his crossbow this season.
    In fact, Reedus told CNN, watching Austin Amelio's Dwight in possession of Daryl's belongings has "really been pissing me off."
    "It's just hard for me to look at," said Reedus, speaking with a level of passion that blurs the line between the actor and his tough guy character.
    This season, however, Daryl's zeal has been replaced with a gut-wrenching guilt that fans got to see in Sunday's episode, "The Cell" -- perhaps one of Reedus' finest hours on the hit AMC series.
    After last week took viewers to The Kingdom and focused the action on Carol (Melissa McBride) and Morgan (Lennie James), this episode followed Daryl as he ventured into The Sanctuary, home to villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his Saviors.
  • National Enquirer paid $150G for Trump affair story,but never published

    By Kateb → Saturday, November 5, 2016

     National Enquirer paid $150G for Trump affair story,but never published Donald John Trump is an American businessman and politician who became the President-elect of the United States on November 8, 2016.  
    In the details The National Enquirer paid $150,000 to a former Playboy "entertainment magazine" playmate for exclusive rights to her story about having an affair with Donald John Trump, but it never published the story, according to The Wall Street Journal.
    Karen McDougal, Playboy's 1998 playmate of the year, claims to have had an affair with Trump from 2006 to 2007, while he was married to his current wife, Melania Trump, according to the report. American Media Inc., which owns The National Enquirer, confirmed the payment, but said it was for a column.
    Donald John Trump is friends with the CEO of American Media Inc., David Pecker. Packer and Trump's relationship goes back to Packer's tenure at the helm of Hachette Filipacchi Magazines,which published a magazine called 'Trump Style" that was distributed at Trump's hotels.
    As The Washington Posted noted in March, the Enquirer endorsed Donald John Trump, and pushed for him to run back in 2011. Donald John Trump has also written numerous columns for the tabloid.
    During the Republican primary, the Enquirer published a number of stories about Donald John Trumpopponents, accusing Dr. Ben Carson of leaving a sponge in a patient's brain, and Ted Cruz's father of being involved in President Kennedy's assassination. Trump, meanwhile, has been spared as a target of the tabloid.
    "In a written statement, the company said it wasn’t buying Ms. McDougal’s story for $150,000, but rather two years’ worth of her fitness columns and magazine covers as well as exclusive life rights to any relationship she has had with a then-married man," the Journal reported. "'AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump,' the statement said."
    A Donald John Trump campaign spokesperson told the Journal that the claims of the affair were "totally untrue."

  • Russell Westbrook's path of destruction leaves no room for peace with Durant

    By Kateb → Friday, November 4, 2016
    Russell Westbrook Jr. is an American professional basketball 
    Kevin Durant wants it all. Russell Westbrook cares for none of it.
    In the past few days, Durant has done multiple one-on-one interviews, talking about his love of Oklahoma City and Westbrook, about how they're still "brothers," and about how there is no beef. He explained his decision to join the Warriors last July as mostly being about finding out who he is as he matures. Durant very much wants there to be no problem with the city, or his former teammate. That's not a bad thing. It's admirable, even, especially his vulnerability and willingness to discuss his decision.
    Westbrook, on the other hand, got tired of the "he said (x), what do you think about that" line of questions a few weeks ago and has shut down everything. He's not answering questions about Durant anymore. This did not stop him from releasing the Jordan Brand ad over the summer that seemed a suspiciously passive-aggressive shot at Durant's departure, nor posting various songs with specific themes that seemed to reflect his feelings on the split.
    We'll never know what Durant and Westbrook's relationship really was. The Thunder, Durant included, fed us one message, consistently, for six years. The two were close, brothers, friends, partners in crime. Then the day after -- not 24 hours after Durant released his love letter to himself in announcing the decision to join Golden State in the Player's Tribune -- a story surfaced in Bleacher Report that Westbrook's style of play and ball dominance had driven Durant away.

  • The Chicago Cubs players explain why the nearly disastrous rain delay actually helped them close out the World Series

    By Kateb → Thursday, November 3, 2016
    The Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team  In the details The Chicago Cubs are MLB champions for the first time since 1908.

    and In an all-time classic Game 7, the Chicago Cubs went up 5-1, only to see the Cleveland Indians pull off an improbable rally to tie the game.

    The same context then , just before extra innings, the weather nearly turned disastrously for both teams, when rain forced a delay in the game. While the delay only lasted 17 minutes, it still meant players, particularly pitchers, would cool off while waiting for the rain to pass.

    Although it, according to Chicago Cubs  players, the rain delay actually helped. While celebrating their championship, third baseman Kris Bryant said they regrouped during a players-only meeting.

    "It was the best thing for us," Bryant told Fox. "We all got together in the weight room. We all supported each other. You know, [Aroldis Chapman] was a little upset. ... Jason Hayward led the way, talking us up, getting us ready."

    While the rain delay had potential to be much worse, it ended up being exactly what the Chicago Cubs needed.

    Newspaper company Gannett Co. has dropped its bid to buy Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times publisher Tronc Inc., ending a monthslong pursuit of its rival.

    In a one-line statement Tuesday, Gannett said it had been engaged in discussions with Tronc but determined not to pursue the transaction any longer.

    “While we believed that the acquisition would have provided an attractive opportunity to expand the USA Today Network quickly, in the end the terms were not acceptable,” a company spokesperson said in an additional statement.
