Mike and the Mad Dog

We sent Tiff Oshinsky to the Mike and the Mad Dog reunion and she sent back the dispatch in the above video.


Chris Christie Clears the Air

Five days after he was spotted employing an unorthodox M&M-eating technique, New Jersey governor Chris Christie called WFAN’s Boomer & Carton show to explain ChocolateGate. Like, really, really, explain it. 


The Life of Pablo

Do you think the Red Sox are starting to regret what they did last off-season? Former shortstop Hanley Ramirez couldn’t learn how to play leftfield and now their other big acquisition from that year, Pablo Sandoval, is a bench player. Manager John Farrell told reporters Thursday that some guy named Travis Shaw is going into the season as the starting third basemanShaw was a college third baseman but mostly played first as a pro. He calls himself a first baseman in his Twitter bio. So yeah. 


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

A Big Day in Fashion

Two big celebrities launched fashion lines Thursday and at least one of them is definitely real. Beyoncé’s new Ivy Park line of athletic wear will be available at Nordstrom, Topshop and Net-a-Porter. I’m not entirely convinced Nas’s Ghostbusters fashion line isn’t an early April Fool’s joke, though.


The Big Apple!

A couple weeks ago, New York’s public transit authority discovered that the sewage smell at a subway station in Brooklyn was caused by, you guessed it, sewage. Wednesday transit officials discovered the source of another subway sewage smell in Manhattan. Sewage, again. Pity us slobs who have to live here.
