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.

Bruins Organist Ron Poster’s Perfect Songs for the Perfect Moment
Sports

Whenever you go into the Garden, it is an experience. But it seems that everything is even more special when you go to a Bruins game. You’ve been looking forward to watch the B’s pummel the Canadians for months now. You check your pockets to make sure you did not lose the tickets. You meet your friends at the gate and walk through the turnstiles, yet again. Juggling a drink and a snack that gave your wallet a Chara-sized hit, you make your way to the seats. As you sit, waiting anxiously for the puck to drop, you may notice a jolly sounding organ playing over the loud speaker. More

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

Delightfully Weird ‘Simpsons’ Intro Reminds Us of Glory Days
Video

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.

Hispanic Heritage Month: The Good, The Bad, and the Embarassing
Human Rights

We’re in the middle of Hispanic Heritage Month, one of the most annoying times of the year for many Latinos. Starting September 15 and ending October 15, the month originally started off as a single week back under Lyndon Johnson in 1968, but Ronald Reagan expanded it to a month in 1988. The timeframe seems based on the fact that many Latin America countries celebrate their independence on days between September 15 and 18. More
