As one of the UFC’s greatest action heroes, Joe Lauzon has always fought with what appears to be a reckless fearlessness. It’s almost as if he doesn’t have a care in the world when he’s in the octagon, and that may be because when he’s fighting, he doesn’t have to deal with anything else but that. “After everything we’ve been through with Joey and everything else...

Barkevious Mingo Adds New Level Of Deception To Patriots’ Defense

The reactions from fans in Cleveland and New England to the Barkevious Mingo trade were polar opposite. Based on the response from Browns fans, one would think the New England Patriots just traded for the defensive equivalent of Johnny Manziel — and I suppose one can’t completely blame them. Mingo, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, started just 16 games in three seasons...

Did Al Roker Go Too Far With His Ryan Lochte Tirade On NBC’s ‘Today?’

Al Roker has no time for Ryan Lochte’s crap, which was evident on a recent episode of NBC’s “Today” in which he lambasted the U.S. swimmer for embellishing a story about being robbed at gunpoint during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. But while many probably agree with Roker’s assessment, the outburst landed the longtime TV personality in hot water with “Today”...
