Serena Williams Wins 6th Wimbledon
On Saturday, Serena Williams collected her 6th Wimbledon title by beating Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-4. The win also signified her fourth Grand Slam championship in a row and 21st major overall. This is the second “Serena Slam” of her career in which she swept each of the majors. J.K.

This perfect emoji Tweet shows off Serena Williams' dominance since 1999. Oh...and Tom Rinaldi gave Serena Williams an insanely awkward kiss after the victory.

Destructive stories like FSU running back Dalvin Cook's suspension get the bulk of media attention but we should all be focusing on outstanding young men like Brian Guendling. You must read/watch this story on how Guendling, a Texas State football player is inspiring the hearing-impaired.
Bryan Cranston dropped the motherload of all mother jokes on a giddy Breaking Bad fan at Comic-Con. It's easily the funniest thing you see all week.
