  • Saluting the #ThadChallenge Fantasy Winners

    Thad Lewis might have been the most anonymous quarterback to start a competitive NFL game in recent memory. Sure, there are the Keith Nulls of the world who start when a team is actively trying to tank, but Lewis was a guy starting for a team that was trying to win games in the middle […]

  • You Are Not Prepared for Snooki’s Routine on This Week’s Dancing With the Stars

    You remember our friend Nicole Polizzi, right? It’s been awhile, I know. A lot has changed, for better and for worse. Her son, Lorenzo, turned 1 this summer. She has lost weight.

    Do you feel that icy wind blowing in, turning the leaves as it scatters them on the perishing autumn grass? That’s the sensation of being subtly frozen out by Martha Stewart, as Gwyneth Paltrow now knows. Nothing extinguishes the fire in your personal outdoor pizza oven/cult of personality like the realization that your heroes might […]
