Undercover With Clippers Cheerleaders

AP

Tess Barker, a comedian and writer, went undercover for Jezebel to "find out what it takes to be an unpaid NBA cheerleader," and the results are staggering. Posing as a member of the Clippers Spirit, Barker discovered the girls are overworked, underpaid and mostly naive to the ways in which they are being taken advantage.

Russell Wilson Shills His Fancy Water

Russell Wilson was interviewed in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and the Seahawks QB made a curious claim. When discussing the vicious hit to the head he took from Clay Matthews during last year's NFC Championship game against the Packers, Wilson said there was no concussion because his "recovery water" healed him.
