Sports

By now, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick’s press conferences are legendary. Reporters glean useful information from the Hoodie about as often as the coach files a 100% honest injury report, i.e. never. But with the team’s unprecedented run of success, the Head Coach / GM / Dictator For Life has mostly been insulated from criticism.

Video

It hasn’t been a great few months for the NFL. I guess if you don’t count the Ray Rice fiasco (and Commissioner Roger Goodell’s ham-fisted non-apology), the weekly player arrests for domestic violence, the losing battle over the Washington football team’s racist nickname, and the league’s repeated claims that concussions totally aren’t that big of a deal, things haven’t been that bad.  Lucky for us, Canton-born comedian Bill Burr (most recently seen on “Breaking Bad”) knows who’s to blame for the NFL’s woes — women, and their incessant attempts to ruin everything held sacred by real American men.

You know that odd area in-between the highway and Chinatown? You know, the area with the theaters and random nightclubs that you’ve never even heard about until some international DJ with a select following comes into town, and your friends are all like “dude you HAVE to go!” You know where I’m talking about…right?

People Will Give Away Personal Data for a Cute-Looking Cookie
Human Rights

Have you ever seen a cookie so damn delicious that you’d give away a chunk of your identity just for one satisfying bite? It’s nothing short of the American way to say, “hell yeah, free food!” and forget all about the personal data aspect. That’s exactly what happened during this “Please Enable Cookies” experiment that took place at a recent Brooklyn Arts Festival. More

For the first time in almost a decade, “The Simpsons” is relevant. Even without the highly questionable “Family Guy” crossover episode, the “Every Simpsons Ever” marathon on FXX was an unparalleled success, reminding comedy geeks of the ’90s how good they had it on Sunday nights and forcing everyone else to finally figure out where FXX was on their cable packages.
