Britt McHenry catching heat over sarcastic Tweet

Britt McHenry is taking heat again, but this time it’s not as well deserved. You’ll remember the ESPN personality/real life Regina George from “Mean Girls” meets the evil twin on “Sweet Valley High” from April, when video of her tirade against a tow company worker broke the internet. Now of course, we don’t know what the tow employee said to her, as that part of the...

Pedro to Chelsea might actually happen soon

Barcelona’s Pedro could be on the move soon to Chelsea. It’s been a very quiet summer transfer window at Stamford Bridge; as Jose Mourinho is very content to stand pat with the winning hand he has.

It was a great bit while it lasted, as Pelini’s cat led all...

San Diego Chargers fans make AWFUL music video

No offense to the San Diego Chargers and their fans, as they’re a very likable team, but this song is just terrible. Chargers fans are great, and the city of San Diego is indeed paradise, but “Save Our Boltz” by C-Siccness featuring Roadeezy is a horrendous song. All “pop” songs about sports teams are awful; this isn’t news. But “Boltz” still stands out as being...
