During his tour, Jack has been going to games in St. Louis and Chicago before his shows. This comes just one day after he left the stage in Detroit because the...

Are The Oakland Raiders Considering Moving To San Antonio?

Either the Oakland Raiders are about to become the San Antonio Raiders, or Raiders owner Mark Davis is using San Antonio as a bargaining chip. I’m betting on the latter. My San Antonio is reporting that Davis met with San Antonio officials regarding a potential move: On July 18, Davis met with the officials, including Henry Cisneros, then-Mayor Julián Castro, City Manager Sheryl...

Like Jay Cutler, Kirk Cousins Is Also Driving Around In A Conversion Van

Jay Cutler made some noise when he showed up to the Bears practice facility driving a conversion van. In a bit of cosmic coincidence, Cutler was not the only NFL quarterback who happened to be driving around in a conversion van. When news of Cutler’s ride broke, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was driving into D.C. in his very own conversion van. Cousins bought the...

Vince Howard From “Friday Night Lights” Will Be Playing For Les Miles At LSU

Vince was a damn good quarterback in season 5 of Friday Night Lights, so it’s no surprise that LSU recruited the former star of the Dillion Panthers. Though, if I’m being perfectly honest, I would much rather watch Vince play in Oregon’s explosive offense than LSU’s field goal kicking offense. Yes, I know Vince Howard doesn’t actually exist and that photo is actually...

And Now, A Freakishly Accurate Portrait Of James Harden Made Out Of Human Hair

It’s so beautiful and kind of disgusting at the same time. This creation is the work of artist Filip Peraic. His work can be found on James Harden Illustrated where he experiments using various mediums to produce the profile of Houston’s famously bearded shooting guard. If anything, it’s kind of surprising that the hair art piece wasn’t done first considering that the human...

Fun Fact: DMX Is F**king Terrified of Amusement Rides

This is an absolutely hilarious video of DMX freaking the hell out during a recent trip to an amusement park in Orlando.
