When it comes to making a statement about President-elect Donald Trump, these NBA teams got game. The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks will no longer stay at Trump-branded hotels in New York City and Chicago, ESPN reported.
Seguin is currently the leading scorer in the NHL. This guy is incredible on
the ice.” The ESPN reporter said on TV. I had just come home from practice and
I was hanging out at home waiting for my fiancé, Y/N to come home.
I said as I muted the TV and answered my buzzing phone. It was Y/N.
I have some news.” She said firmly.
whats up?” I asked hesitantly.
mom. She’s off the list for the wedding. She’s being uninvited.”
You can’t uninvite my own mother our wedding!” I said back. “What even
happening, Tyler. I don’t want someone like her ruining our special day
together!” She yelled into the phone.
did she even do to you?” I questioned again.
is SO nosey when it comes to the wedding plans. She is being very controlling
and is making me do everything her way… I can’t handle it anymore. We finally
had a falling out today. I’m over it. She’s making this more about her than anyone
us.” She explained.
Okay, um, I’ll talk to her. Just promise me you’ll let me talk to her, okay?” I
Whatever. I seriously don’t like her, though.” She said.
I groaned. “Bye.” I hung up, going to text my mom immediately. Before I could
even type out a text, my phone starting buzzing again. It was my mom this time.
Mom.” I said.
wedding is off, Tyler. It’s not happening.” She stated angrily.
do you mean?” I questioned.
not marrying that girl. I won’t allow it to happen! She’s awful. It’s done. Pack
her things and have her out of your home immediately. And make sure you get the
ring back.” She said directly.
the hell was going on?
not.” I told her with a sarcastic laugh.
me?” She asked.
I’m not going to break off marrying the girl of my dreams because you are being
controlling about the wedding. We’re getting married whether you like it or
not, and whether you’re there or not.” I yelled into the phone. “I don’t even
know what happened that made you guys hate each other! Things were fine last
weekend when you were here!”
relax.” I heard her say, a calm in her voice. I also heard giggles in the
I asked, but the line went dead.
few seconds later my front door opened. My mom, Y/N, Cabbie, and his entire
crew walked in.
today we learned that Tyler Seguin doesn’t pay much attention to what cars are
parked in front of his house, and that he truly is in love. Sorry for this one,
buddy.” Cabbie said to the camera. Damnit!
seriously hate you!” I said, standing up and shoving Cabbie lightly. “You guys
scared the shit out of me!” I said pulled my mom and Y/N in for a hug.
babe.” Y/N said as she kissed me.
for the record, I love Y/N. And I’m so excited that she’s going to be a part of
the family.” My mom said to the camera.
the wedding is still on?” I whispered to Y/N.
course.” She said with a laugh as I tickled her sides.
This is The Ed’s NBA All-Future team. The idea was to pick five current players for a team you would have to stick with for the next 10 years. Since I’m not an NBA expert I asked my buddy Eric who is an NBA expert (at least as far as my friend circle goes and also probably further) and his team was the same as mine except for one difference….He suggested Kawhi Leonard would be better at 35 than Kristaps Porzingis would be at 31. I agree with him (because he knows much, much more than I do) however my Porzingis doodle was far superior to my Kawhi doodle. So yeah, here’s my starting five.
1.Giannis Antetokounmpo, 21 years young, 83 inches tall, Milwaukee Bucks.
I would play him at point guard. Even if he is barely serviceable at point guard right now, the fact remains….he is 6′11 and serviceable at point guard! Also we would have 10 years to make him better at it (because in this scenario Chris Paul would be my 41 year old head coach).
2.Andrew Wiggins, 22 years young, 80 inches tall, Minnesota Timberwolves.
Wiggins’ entire role on this team would be to watch highlights of Bron and D-Wade in Miami and do that. Just the highlights though. Not concerned with the rest. This offense would mostly be large dudes throwing oops to Wig.
3, 4, and 5..
In no particular position these guys would make up my front court.
3.Karl-Anthony Towns, 21 years young, 84 inches tall, Minnesota Timberwolves.
KAT along with The Freaky Greek are the easiest picks for this team. He is everything a big man should be. He’d probably get beat up by Shaq back then but it’s back now now and he’s the perfect player for the modern game.
4.Anthony Davis, 24 years young, 82 inches tall, New Orleans Pelicans.
The biggest sad face emoji currently happening in the NBA is Anthony Davis playing for the Pelicans. This is false. It’s actually the fact that Sacramento and Oklahoma City have NBA teams and mother fucking Seattle does not.
5.Kristaps Porzingis, 21 years young, 600 inches tall, New York Knicks.
Colin Kaepernick is drawing passionate supporters and detractors to his first start of 2016. Some fans arrived a New Era Field for Sunday’s 49ers-Bills game and took stands on his behalf, while others showed up selling extremely inflammatory anti-Kaepernick shirts.
ESPN reported that at least two groups came to the stadium parking lot Sunday morning carrying signs and banners planning to protest on behalf of him and the causes that motivated him to kneel during the national anthem. SURJ stands for Showing Up for Racial Injustice, a national network of white supporters for causes involving racial justice, according to its website. Just Resisting is an organization of young people of color based in Buffalo.
The Raiders are reportedly 'strongly considering' Marshawn Lynch as their new running back
Legendary Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch may have retired from football before the start of last season, but don’t expect that to stop his hometown Oakland Raiders from going after him this offseason.
Although Lynch, 30, did not play a single down last year, the Seahawks still own his NFL rights. As such, in order for the Raiders to actually acquire him (if Lynch agrees, and that’s a big if), they’d need the Seahawks to sign off. As ESPN noted, Seattle’s general manager, John Schneider, and Oakland’s GM, Reggie McKenzie, worked together in the Packers’ front office, which could help the negotiations move forward.
Earlier this week, free agent running back Latavius Murray opted to sign with the Minnesota Vikings rather than return to the Raiders. That creates a big void in the backfield for the Raiders, who went 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Along with Lynch, another running back that has been linked to the Raiders is Adrian Peterson. When the Vikings signed Murray, they announced the Peterson would not return.
Of course, Lynch’s return to the NFL all hinges on whether or not he wants to. And there have been no reports on which direction he is leaning. That said, one thing is certain: the NFL is a whole lot more fun when Beast Mode is playing.
R.I.P. Super Bowl Winner Will Smith Shot, Killed After Car Crash in New Orleans. Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith was shot to death in New Orleans’s Lower Garden District on Saturday night, following a traffic collision, the city’s Coroner’s Office has confirmed to ABC sister network ESPN.
A police report says Smith’s Mercedes G63 SUV was rear-ended by a Hummer H2 while driving with his wife. The driver of the Hummer and Smith “exchanged words at which time the driver of the Hummer produced a handgun” and shot Smith “multiple times and his 34-year-old wife twice in the right leg.”
Smith was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was transported to a local hospital. The driver of the Hummer is in police custody and is being interviewed by police. The gun was recovered, police said. Police have not yet released the identity of the driver. Saints head coach Sean Payton called Smith’s death “senseless.” Smith was drafted by the Saints in 2004 and spent all nine of his seasons with the team, including winning Super Bowl XLIV with New Orleans. He last played in 2012.
Pretty fucking hard to believe that ESPN and its shitty reporters just got this “evidence” about Hope Solo’s arrest now. And the fact that they release it the day before her first game at the World Cup is absolutely awful. What shit human beings!
You can’t persuade me they didn’t do this shit on purpose. It’s unfair to the rest of the players on her team, to the tournament as a whole. And don’t evenuse that “US Soccer made it’s bed and now they have to lie in it” bullshit. If US Soccer even acknowledges this, they’re stupid. Absolutely stupid.
Her half-sister is apparently still pissed about the dismissal of the case and now she comes out looking all sweet and normal talking about how much she took care of Hope as a child. Bullshit. Nobody took care of Hope when she was a child. Her mom wasn’t a good mom. Her dad kidnapped her and her brother. Her brother beat on her and nobody did anything about it.
This is serious bullshit.
Shame on ESPN Outside the Lines for this shady timing.
Start with this: the story didn’t go big until ESPN reported about 24 hours after the game that the NFL had discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs were measured to be more than 2 pounds per square inch below the league minimum of 12.5.
That gave a subject that almost no one knew much about context, significance and potentially sinister intent. ESPN cited a nebulous “league source” at a time when it’s believed no one outside the NFL office knew the actual measurements.
Of course, that story wasn’t true. It wasn’t even close to true. Wells’ report showed that none of the footballs, each measured twice, were that underinflated.
At that very moment, the NFL had to know the story wasn’t true. Yet it did nothing.
So the league either created a fake story that was extremely prejudicial to the Patriots by leaking inaccurate information or someone else did it and the league office let it run wild rather than correct it with the actual air pressure measurements. It’s tough to figure out which scenario is worse for Goodell.
