"The practice of sport is a human right"
The 2014 Winter Olympic Games got started in Sochi, Russia today (even tho the Opening Ceremonies won’t take place until Friday) and as you may be well aware, many protests are taking place all around the world, in various ways, to stand against the horrible state-sanctioned anti-gay laws in Russia. Many people are disgusted by the fact that Russia is hosting the Olympic Games, which celebrates fair play among all peoples, and have no problem enforcing laws that treat gays and lesbians as criminals. Google unveiled their latest Google Doodle today to mark the start of the Olympic Games. As you can see below, this new Doodle is meant to offer support to the gays in Russia, as well as the gays traveling to Russia to compete in the games. More »

Becks is Back
It has been almost a year since David Beckham formally retired from playing professional soccer but today we learn that he is set to make a return to the world of professional soccer tomorrow … as an owner of a new soccer team in Miami, FL. Altho the new as-yet unnamed team doesn’t yet have a stadium to play in and likely won’t actually join Major League Soccer until 2016, the announcement tomorrow that Becks is an owner of the franchise should help pave the way for all of the pieces to fall into place so that this new team can become the 22nd team in the MLS league. Even tho David Beckham retired from professional play last year, I knew it wouldn’t be long until he make a return in some way to the sport that he loves so much. More »

Kobe Bryant wants in on the fun
While you and your friends were spending your weekend hanging out together, in the city or at home … maybe at a movie or concert event, 50 Cent spent part of his weekend chillin’ with a dear friend of his own. You see, Fitty decided to take in a New York Mets basketball game this weekend and ended up becoming super BFFs with Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep. I’m assuming the two were brought together by the happenstance that they were seated next to one another court-side at the Mets game … but all it took was close proximity for these two unlikely friends to become the best of buds :) Click below to see their adorable friendship as it bloomed on Fitty‘s official Instagram profile.

See? This is how they get people like me to watch the Super Bowl. I didn’t even realize how much I missed all of the fathers and father figures from Full House until I saw this teaser for an upcoming Super Bowl Dannon commercial, featuring John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier. But yeah, I missed them, lol. Peep the video for more!
The full ad will air on February 2 during Super Bowl XLVIII.
They enjoyed everything BUT the game itself
BFFs Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne decided to take in a New York Knicks basketball game together this week but not before they got loaded up on alcohol and very likely some sort of mind-altering thing that could be smoked in a vaporizer. The result was a whole lotta messy behavior, naturally caught on film. Click thru the gallery presented here to see what Michelle and Cara got up to together. It looks like they both had a lot of fun, not that they’d necessarily remember any of it the morning after.
The TV Guide
Ugh. I have got jet lag bad, y’all. I fell asleep midday yesterday a couple of times but only for about 30 minutes each time so that the sleep wasn’t restful and left me wide away afterward. From around 10PM last night until well past 5AM this morning, I just could not sleep. I did manage to watch my beloved University of Oklahoma Sooners take on and defeat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl championship game last night. I also watched some recorded TV shows on my DVR, a movie on Netflix and played hours of my fave new mobile phone video game. Blah. I’m a little loopy right now but I’m hopeful today will be the day my sleep schedule will normalize. More »

May the Odds Be Ever in the Wildcat's Favor
This past weekend, The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson attended a college basketball game in his home state at the University of Kentucky and was met by cheers, adulation and an impromptu Mockingjay salute by members of the crowd. If you have seen either of the Hunger Games films, you know that the Mockingjay salute is very important to the overall story … that the crowd gave Josh the very same salute is just brilliantly awesome. Click below to see photos of Josh at the game and see the crowd’s reaction to his appearance at the game. More »
I Cannot Stop LMAO...
I kid you not, I had tears coming out of my eyes as I wrote out this headline. Y’all. This is a very long super cut, but I promise you it’s worth every minute. As we say goodbye to 2013 and reminisce about all of the cray-est stories, the best songs, and the models I stalked, we have this: a brilliant supercut of all the best, sometimes NSFW bloopers from local news stations. I am cracking UP over here! The F-bombs, the penises, friggen Charles Ramsey (MY FAVE!!! CLEVELAND STAND UP, LOL!), the creepy looking monkey grabbing that one news anchor’s breast. I cannot. Nobody call me while I watch this again. Peep the video for more!
Love for Salinas
Selena Gomez was the featured performer during the halftime show of the annual Dallas Cowboys football game yesterday on Thanksgiving day and homegirl brought the hotness to the show. Selena performed a medley of three songs — Like A Champion, Slow Down and Come and Get It — during the halftime show in front of her hometown crowd (Gomez is a proud Texan). Having seen her in concert recently, I can confirm that her halftime performance was very similar to the performances of these songs in concert but honestly, she did a great job yesterday. I’m a fan of each of these songs so I was adequately entertained. Selena Gomez was channeling a bit of Selena Quintanilla I think so, yes, I loved her performance very much. Please enjoy.
The Torch Relay will Involve a Space Walk
Despite the horrible anti-gay laws that exist in Russia right now, I am trying to keep an open mind about the 2014 Winter Olympic Games that will be held in Sochi next February. I tend to get all excited about the Olympic Games when they roll around every two years but this time, I can’t say I’ve been too thrilled with the idea of the Olympic Games being hosted by a homophobic nation. News today that the Olympic Torch was flown into space and delivered to the International Space Station is just too cool to ignore tho. Altho the Olympic Torch has flown into space twice before (in 1996 and 2000), this is the first time it will leave its space shuttle. The torch will remain in space for 5 days and will be taken on a space walk on Saturday! Wow. More »
