  • And the Most Hated Team of This Year’s MLB Playoffs is…? (Hint: Not the Yankees)

    According to a recent study conducted by the Wall Street Journal there’s a new king that sits on the thrown of most hated baseball team in this years playoffs. With the Yankees missing the playoffs over the last two seasons fans have turned their torches and pitchforks a bit west. For the second straight year the WSJ has conjured up a metric to gauge Major League Baseball’s Hateability Index, ranking this year’s 10 playoff teams in order of general loathsomeness. The rankings are based on how many points teams racked up in 10 contempt-worthy categories, such as drug suspensions, ridiculous beards and winning too much. (As with driver’s licenses, points are bad here.) Last year the Los Angeles Dodges took the cake with their over dramatic season, bloated contracts, annoying fans and Yasiel Puig, but have redeemed themselves this year with a more tame season and the feel good story of having super-nice guy, Clayton Kershaw arguably have the best pitching season of all time. This year the St. Louis Cardinals dethroned the Dodgers, possibly because of their recent success in showing up in October. No one likes a winner. The Journal notes, “The NL Central champs scored a 12.7 on more »

    If New York’s Bravest releases their own calendar every year, why can’t New York’s toughest? The yellow cab drivers of NYC work endless, thankless days 365 days a year. they’re the battery that keeps going and going, and let’s be honest, if they stopped doing their job the city would shut down.

  • If You Strap a GoPro to a Bird of Prey, We’ll Watch It

    Anything I’m doing immediately becomes secondary when someone in the office says “Hey did you see that new video of a hawk with a GoPro attached to it flying through the air?” Sold. In. How much? I want to see it right now. If I happen to be holding a baby when I hear that, I’m dropping said baby and running to the nearest desktop (preferably with a retna display) and ogling for what seems like an eternity at a first person perspective of an enormous bird soar through the air, most likely hunting for an animal to eat. In their latest bird x GoPro collab, the HD camera company features a video with David De Vleeschauwer and Debbie Pappyn as they travel to Mongolia to capture the point of view of a golden eagle as he soars over the Altai Mountains.

  • Can Pete Davidson Become ‘SNL’s New Franchise Player?

    You might have already started hearing the buzz for SNL’s newest featured cast member, Pete Davidson might just be the face of a new breed of cast members looking for an identity. With the mass exodus of season 38 (Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudakis, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers) the new young faces of SNL had some trouble finding their way last season with young veterans Taren Killem and Keenan Thompson being thrown in the ring as the stars of the show. Though the two could hold their own, the show was looking for a rising star viewers could get excited for. That may just be Pete Davidson, a 20-year old, Staten Island native who’s been making waves on the stand-up circuit since he was 16. Davidson was featured in a few skits that showed glimmers of a young Andy Samberg, but then absolutely crushed it with his already infamous Weekend Update bit alongside Update Hosts, former Daily Show correspondent, Micheal Che and another Staten Island native and head writer, Colin Jost. Davidson has immediate charisma, a trait that the new cast members from last season were lacking. Combine that with female franchise player, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong, more »

Ireland, obviously, you probably picture a green hilly prarie as far as the eye can see with a old wooden pub packed with grizzled men drinking Guinness and bare knuckle boxing their feelings out or you might think of the U.K., a corner pub on a London cobblestone street, where men chant the songs of their soccer team over a New Castle and bare knuckle box their feelings out.

  • 7 Inspiring Quotes This High School Athlete Can Teach NFL Players

    This Friday, Apollos Hester and the East View (Texas) Patriots, battled a vigorous high school football match up and came out on top 42-41 over Vandegrift, but that’s not what all the buzz around this game is about.
