Also seeing if twitter embeds work.
Real talk, I’m just trying to see if this gallery plugin works. Click the pic!
The Biebs wanted to pay tribute to his Moms, so obviously he got a tattoo of an eyeball in his elbow pit. God damn this kid is the coolest.
Bad week for Detroit. First they find out that Eminem passes up on the Elysium role, now his city files chapter 11. Who would have ever guessed that Clint Eastwood’s half-hour Super Bowl commercial wouldn’t save the city? Plus the Tigers made it to the World Series last year with Miguel Cabrera winning the triple crown, so that had to help, right? Truthfully, I don’t really understand economics, or accounting for that matter, so I’m probably not the right person to be analyzing this.
Sucks dick for the creditors. Out of all of your clients, you don’t expect the one that is the 18th largest city in the U.S. to be the one that stiffs you. Gotta give credit to Detroit though, just throwing in the towel Trump style. The Donald’s filed for bankruptcy a ton of times, and he’s a huge success. Come to think of it, if Detroit just starts cutting some corners and building casinos, they’ve got the potential to be the next AC, or at least get its own reality show.
Great week for drugs in sports. Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell test positive, MLB gets ready drop bombs on A-Rod and Ryan Braun over Biogenesis, the Home Run Derby showcases some artificial muscle the Tour de France drags on, and Coach Kidd plead guilty to a 2012 DUI
And you thought Bud Selig and Roger Goodell had rid the sports world of drugs. No chance. Athletes these days these days are juicing like it’s the 90s. Doesn’t even have to be steroids or classic PEDs like amphetamines and HGH. Athletes are using all types of physical and mental stimulants, including Adderall. Even if you’re not blatantly using illegal substances, you’ve got to be testing the limits. Gay said he was let down by a friend who told him his drug was legal, while Olympic 10k gold and silver medalists Mo Farrah and Galen Rupp apparently brought a goddamn Walgreens to London with them. It’s just the reality; the winners are gonna be pushing the envelope, you want to be on top, you’ve got to be willing to get a little dirty.
Bottom line, if you’re not cheating, you’re not trying
I never really watched Glee, even though I’m partial to choreographed pop covers, the occasional Fox programming, and Jane Lynch. It’s probably because I’ve got a backlog of TV shows to watch longer than the line at Georgetown Cupcake and I try to avoid anything my parents like, with the exception of Top Gun.
Anyway, when I heard late last night that star of the show Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room, I obviously figured it was a drug overdose. Dude’s been in and out of rehab and has been very public about his problems, so this seems like a no brainer for those looking to jump to conclusions.
But I’ve got a serious rebuttal for that explanation. They’re all saying this guy was 31, yet he was playing a high schooler just a few years ago. He still looks 25, maybe, but he definitely doesn’t look 31. And yeah I know that Hollywood regularly uses actors in their mid 20s to play high schoolers, but this guy is making Andy Milonakis look old. Bottom line: There’s no way this dude was on a ton of drugs. No chance a thirty-year old drug addict could play a teenager. Drug addicts look like this. Not like this. For all we know those trips to rehab could have been publicity stunts like when Donny Osmond almost faked a drug arrest.
I’m not going to sit here and say that foul play was involved here, but then again I’m absolutely going to say foul play was involved.
UPDATE: My bad, Monteith died of a heroin and alcohol overdose. Can’t be right about everything, I guess.
Gotta feel for the guy. Gets a questionable haircut, goes 4-9, basically falls off the face of the earth, and then when he decides to make a big statement by throwing a 13 strikeout no hitter, he does it at one in the morning (east coast time, which is most important for the news cycle/twitterverse), right as George Zimmerman is being found not guilty and that Glee kid is (probably) OD’ing in a hotel room in Vancouver. Everyone is woke up this morning, checking their Facebooks and having no idea that The Freak is back, unless they have friends who are die-hard Giants fans. Timmy needs a new publicist immediately, someone to advise him to save his no-hitters for the east coast and not waste a good one during Zimmerman’s jury deliberations. Obviously Glee kid’s death was unpredictable so we’ll chalk that one up to bad luck, but the Zimmerman’s trial is basically the only thing that’s been on msnbc and CNN for the past two weeks.
