'RHOP:' Karen Huger Is Extra Shady This Season
While the shade is always apparent and effervescent when it comes to any of the Real Housewives on any of the multiple different shows of the franchise, Real Housewife of Potomac, Karen Huger, seems to have upped her own ante for this season. While she has always seemed like one who wouldn't take much from anybody in particular, she is now dishing out the tea of her own.
Why "AB" to "Big D" Was Never Really a "Thing"
First off and before anything else is said, let's make this clear, Antonio Tavaris Brown is the best wide receiver in the NFL right now. Even at 30 years old, this is a fact, and with the way he plays the game, he should be that for at least the next three seasons. Perhaps, that's why the Raiders were so comfortable giving him three years of new money, 50 million potentially with a whopping 30 million dollars in new guarantees.
AAF: A Few Reasons the Alliance of American Football May Be Here to Stay
Usually, the day after the Superbowl signals the long wait until August, when football once again kicks off. Not this year, though, and the AAF are the ones to thank. The Alliance of American Football kicked off this past weekend, and other than the fact that they have the official backing and blessing of the "NFL," they might be here to stay. Here's why:
Three Reasons 'Bad Boys for Life' Won't Disappoint
As a society, we often times frown on remakes and especially the dastardly trilogy. This is the case for many reasons, but some of the more common reasons include: that we are getting tired of the characters in a series, becoming over saturated with the storyline or nature of events, or even the mere notion that most remakes simply never live up to their predecessor(s). Well, in this particular case, those are the exact reasons why we are clamoring for the third installment in this series.
Tom Freaking Brady: G.O.A.T.'s and Ghosts
When you have won as much as Tom Brady has, it seems as though "winning" in itself isn't that appealing anymore. Well, that's wrong, because Tom is just as motivated as ever, and winning again this weekend seems to be just as imperative as any other. How though? How can he be after all these years of winning, and winning big? Why though? Why when he has five, and I repeat five of those things, at home already. I'll tell you why and how. Champions, and especially Legends, create things to motivate them, even when they aren't really there. It's a ghost... ghost... ghost.
Airplane Mode! Why Derrick Jones Jr and the Miami Heat Are an Awesome Fit
Derrick Jones Jr is a highlight waiting to happen, and has been for the Miami Heat during every minute he has been on the floor this season. On the fast break he is terrifying, finishing in traffic off of cuts or lob passes. He makes dastardly steals, gets his hands on a lot of balls in the passing lanes, and isn't afraid to chase someone down for a highlight reel block either. These things make you wonder, "How did this kid go undrafted?" but even more, where was this type of play when he did get his opportunity in Phoenix?
The Man... The Myth... The Legend: What Makes Saquon Barkley So Great
Heading into this weekend's game against the Penn State Nittany Lions, the Ohio State Buckeyes probably have one thing on their minds more than any other, and that’s stopping Saquon Barkley. Although the Buckeyes are quite fond of dominant ball carriers, Ezekiel Elliott and Carlos Hyde just to name a few, this go-around they’ll be tasked with slowing one down as opposed to helping one eat up turf. Penn State's “Big Back,” in ability and sheer physical size, won’t be that easy to slow down though. This will be for many reasons, but mostly because he is just that elite, and illustrates it every time he is on the field. Just like the elite backs before him and that now play on Sundays, he has special traits that make it inevitable that whenever he touches the ball, something good is bound to happen. What are those traits you might ask? I thought you never would.
Are The L.A. Chargers A New Team?
Over the past week, the Los Angeles Chargers have not looked like the same team that was taking the field the first few weeks of the season. Outside of just the fact that they have managed to string together a few wins in a row, the team looks as if they were somehow reinvigorated on both sides of the ball. Some would say that it is just the bumps of an NFL season, leading them to believe that the Chargers were eventually going to get here after weathering an early adjustment period. Some are still in shock of what they are seeing, and it has them and many others asking, “Are the Chargers a new team?"
Nike Gets a Big Fat 10 for This Troll Job
What is a troll? No, not the short, pimple-faced imaginary creature that lives under a bridge. Wrong again, not the highlighter hair-colored, plastic figurines that were all the rage in the 90s. When I say “troll," I am talking about the new age kind, the one that hides behind a keyboard. I am referring to a character that the phrase “when Twitter fingers turn to trigger fingers” encapsulates perfectly. You know that guy or girl, with no “real” profile picture or image, who has something to say about everything and usually nothing positive. Yeah, that person. This person would be your troll.
Best Fill-In QB for Aaron Rodgers
The world shook yesterday using Minnesota as its axis, but as we all know, there aren’t many earthquakes in the midwest. Some would say it was the earth-shattering hit put onto Aaron Rodgers by Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr, a “dead fish” tackle as categorized by the crew on CBS’s postgame, one where the body makes contact and just goes “limp” as the tackler plows the person being tackled into the ground with their shoulder. Others would say it was the multitude of Packers fans and Wisconsinian’s alike, as their realities were not only altered, but torn away at the seams. No matter what caused the quake, the aftershock is this: Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone and is likely out for the rest of the regular season. He could never be "replaced," so we must be careful about our next words, but the next obvious question is, who is his fill-in?

'Balllllllinnnnn' — This is Why The Chiefs Should be Super Bowl FavoritesTop Story - October 2017
Although only five weeks in, the NFL is starting to take shape. Aside from the black cloud that is “the national anthem controversy,” there have been plenty of other storylines for the NFL fan to salivate upon.
