Who's Excited for Another Rocky?

Soccer fans in Everton came to the stadium on Monday expecting to watch a game against West Brom, but they may end up in the newest Rocky movie. Sylvester Stallone appeared on the video board before halftime and encouraged fans to cheer loudly for a crowd scene that will appear in the the movie. The newest Rocky movie, Creed, will be released in 2016 and stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the grandson of Apollo Creed. His opponent will be Liverpool boxer (and Everton fan) Tony Bellew​. This will be the seventh movie in the franchise. My favorite remains Rocky IV with the original a close second, followed by Rocky III, Rocky II, Rocky VI and Rocky V a distant last. Rocky V did introduce us to a very young E from Entourage, so that's worth something.


Walt Frazier: Fashion Icon

Walt Frazier busted out his red cow suit for yesterday's Knicks-Pelicans game, which may have been a good luck charm seeing that New York snapped its 16-game losing streak. FTW has a ranking of Frazier's Top 10 suits this season.


Justin Bieber All-Star Fail

The annoying Canadian tweeted out his support for Kyle Lowry to make this year's All-Star team, which is a big deal because people can vote on Twitter this year. Unfortunately, a tweet must contain #NBABallot to be counted as a valid All-Star vote. Bieber failed to include this hashtag and the error has already cost Lowry an estimated 25,000 votes.


Lovely Lady of the Day

I received two requests for Amanda Cerny over the weekend and then she posted an Instagram pic about Cool-Ranch Doritos, my favorite chip. These important factors led me to make her today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).

Tupac Would Be Proud

NBC Nightly News sent a reporter to New England to get a comment on Deflate-gate and the upcoming Super Bowl. Julian Edelman, however, became the story when his T-shirt with an image of Tupac Shakur flipping a double-bird made it on air.

Been a while since I've seen one of these "Hitler reacts" videos, but this one is a gem. If you haven't heard, the Grateful Dead announced they'll be playing three farewell shows in Chicago over July 4 weekend.
