Happy Birthday, America

Independence Day weekend is here and nothing says America quite like GIFs of models in USA-themed bikinis and Lindsey Pelas giving a July 4th sunscreen lesson. So enjoy the weekend, be safe, be smart and if you see a rifle lying around, don't use it to play The Star Spangled Banner as Chris Cheng does in the above video. Just enjoy his performance.


Only Rich People Should Play Golf

The "Donald Trump Saying Dumb Things' tour rolls on.


Poor Sheldon Richardson

My headline may be a bit misleading since Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson makes a lot more money than you and I. But after reading Mike Freeman's excellent piece on how widespread marijuana use is among NFL players (15 of the 16 players he spoke with smoke regularly), I don't know how Richardson got caught. But he did and now he must sit out the first four games of next season for marijuana use. 


Lovely Lady of the Day

If you're not familar with Louisiana native Lindsey Pelas, who I mentioned in the lead item, you need to spend more time on the internet. Today is her Hot Clicks debut (click here for full-size gallery).  


Cheesesteak Record Update

Thursday we celebrated Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel, who set a Citizens Bank Park record by devouring 18 cheesesteaks in three days. We're proud to announce Hanel set a new record after devouring five more. He now holds the record for most cheesesteaks (23) eaten during a four-game period. Congrats Marcus!

A Few Cheers Now For Rocky Balboa...

It's July 4th weekend and there's nothing more America than Rocky Balboa going to Russia, beating its best fighter and turning a hostile crowd in his favor.


Speaking of Rocky IV 

Ronda Rousey referenced the fight in describing how much she wants to beat Bethe Correia​.


Terrapin Station

The New York Times has a good piece on whether the Grateful Dead 50th anniversary shows are a money grab or a fitting end of an iconic American rock band. I'm just hoping they don't screw up Terrapin Station.
