Allen Iverson Gambling and Enjoying Dessert Before Big3 No-Show

As you might have heard, Allen Iverson pulled a very Allen Iverson move this past weekend when he failed to attend a Big3 game (not a practice!) in Dallas. This may not seem like a big deal because it’s the Big3 and no one gives a damn, but the league’s official Twitter account sent out a very serious tweet about it on Sunday:

So where in the world was AI? According to TMZ, he was gambling at the Rivers Casino in Chicago until Sunday morning:

Allen Iverson was gambling in a Chicago area casino hours before he blew off a BIG3 basketball league game in Dallas over the weekend … TMZ Sports has learned.

Iverson was first spotted at the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, IL on Saturday night into early Sunday morning. One witness says AI was still in the building at 3 AM.

After heavy casino action, AI then trekked over to the Sugar Factory a couple miles away for some dessert action. A woman named Caitlin took an IG video of AI sitting alone at the restaurant:

Here’s AI gambling in Philly two weeks ago…

Open Post: Hosted By The Emo Husky Claiming The Iron Throne

screen-shot-2017-07-31-at-2-27-05-pm

Former Hot Slut of the Month Zeus is back, and I’m beginning to think the emotional Siberian Husky has reason to cry all the time: his owners are monsters! Zeus’s first tantrum stemmed from him being a fish trapped in a dog’s body. His owners want to take him on walks, and all he wants to do is be where the people aren’t: under the sea!

This go ‘round, Zeus is royally pissed because his owner wants him to get out the front seat and go to the back. Um, ‘scuse me, betch? Zeus called shotgun at sunrise when everyone was still brushing their teeth and arguing over whether to watch Today or Good Morning America. By order of the Finders Keepers Amendment that Ben Franklin cheekily tacked onto the Constitution, he gets front seat, dammit! I like how the owner is heard asking, “Am I supposed to get in the back?” Yes, huss! And you’ll enjoy whatever version of Jock Jams Zeus decides to play, because radio control comes with the good SUV real estate! Ya snooze, ya loose, mean lady owner!

Sacramento Kings Social Media Guy Engaged to Woman He Met Via Kings Twitter

Thanks to Sacramento Kings digital content guy Shahbaz Khan, there may be a huge uptick in social media managers of professional sports teams sliding into those DMs to find “the one”.

As you can see below, Shahbaz was doing his thing at work two years ago when he stumbled across a photo of diehard Kings fan Ferheen Khan that he just had to share on social. He followed protocol and asked for permission to use said photo, and the rest is history:

The big question: Did Shahbaz really use Kings Twitter to pursue Ferheen? Yes, but he was doing his job first so it’s coo:

If you’re jonesing for more details on this Twitter love story, ABC 10 in Sacramento did some solid Journalism (capital J, of course) and learned that Shahbaz had recently moved to the Sacramento, didn’t know anyone, and saw that Ferheen had the same last name. He proceeded to shoot his shot and invited Ferheen and her brother out to game — a couple years later, they’re engaged in time for the De’Aaron Fox Era. Nice!

The life-changing photo Shahbaz saw while surfing the Internet for good content:

Ferheen’s got jokes:

The Horrifying John McCain ‘Jokes’ No One Talks About

Or, as our own Jodi Smith put it, «Hero and asshole are not fully incompatible labels.»

Over the course of his recent cancer diagnosis, his «yes» vote to debate the healthcare repeal and subsequent «nay,» McCain has been lauded as a hero, decried as a monster, and everything in between.

But human nature is without clear labels. We are all shades of gray. McCain has for much of his career enjoyed the kind of near-constant praise and adoration with infrequent and minor hiccups that only beloved white male politicians can. See also Bill Clinton. And, in fact, that’s how we arrive at our first joke.

At a Republican fundraiser in 1998, McCain made the following joke in the presence of donors:

«Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father.»

Chelsea Clinton was barely 18 at the time.

In a world absent of social media, McCain escaped this unscathed. When the Washington Post reported it, they didn’t include the «joke» itself, citing it as «too vile to repeat.» McCain faced no real consequence. Clinton hears similar «jokes» to this day; Reno would hear similar «jokes» until she died.

McCain would go on to apologize. To Bill Clinton. Not to Chelsea, Janet, or Hillary. The women the joke was on? Of little importance. The man in charge of them? Deserving of apology.

And that leads us to the other joke. This one from 1986.

Speaking to the National League of Cities and Towns in Washington, DC, McCain allegedly said: Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, «Where is that marvelous ape?»

Hoo boy.

Whenever a new star’s Twitter is mined for problematic comments, invariably we get inundated with replies calling for sensitivity, encouraging us to remember that people change and grow, that we shouldn’t shame people for things they said when they were young and dumb, or in a different cultural landscape.

The ’80s and ’90s were a different time. Yes. But in a week he spent being lauded for courage, for voting his conscience, for doing the right thing and being heralded as the «only» one who did the right thing while two Republican women and 48 Democrats went unsung, particularly Murkowski and Collins who faced threats of physical violence, these jokes, coated in misogyny and a diminished view of women, are part of McCain’s larger story.

McCain, like all people, acts in shades of gray. But if we must lionize and deify, let’s also include the dark moments.

20 NSFWBDs React To Mooch Getting Fired By Trump

It was a 10-day period that will go down in Internet and White House lore as the week when The Mooch took over as the bad boy we didn’t know we needed, but then we all realized we needed once the Mooch went off the rails and gave us some of the greatest quotes in political history. Nobody has given us so much in such a short period of time.

There were the deleted tweets. There were the Bannon quotes. There were the times when he said he’d fire all of the leakers. There were so many moments in those 10 days.

And the NSFWBDs took notice. They seemed to enjoy the Mooch. They seemed to relate to the Mooch, but then his street cred took a hit when he ratted on Bannon sucking his own dong.

Now it’s all over and Mooch is headed back to NYC without a marriage and without his dream job at the White House. Never forget.

RiRi Ain’t Here For Your Snack Attack

Paris premiere of 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' - Arrivals

Rihanna has gotten a little curvier as of late, and most fans are loving the fact that the pop star is being body positive from a genuine place, as opposed to the Kardashian method of Photoshopping a bigger booty and ‘gramming, “Me too! #thick #blessed.” Of course, some people are real assholes, so RiRi has drawn the ire of fat shamers on the interwebs. Some Barstool Sports turd wrote an article calling her fat, which must make me the Hindenburg. He now works at TV Guide. Just kidding, I just saw The Devil Wears Prada for the 9000th time last night and have been acting like Emily Blunt all day. That’s all! Actually, it isn’t, because it seems like the plus-size shade continues. 

BuzzFeed reports Ri&Co. were at a convenience store the other day, and the singer’s bitch ass friend jokingly snarked how they had only been there for a few minutes and she already had four snacks. Girl, have you seen the savages that loiter in a 7-Eleven before? If a girl wants to turn it into Supermarket Sweep, I don’t blame her! Let her have her damn Pringles in peace!

Another (nicer) friend tells the snitch to stop judging while RiRi “Gone With The Wind Fabulous” twirls away. Sidenote: that jacket looks like it was made from the wallpaper at a Niagara Falls hotel with a heart-shaped tub in every room. Rihanna later commented along the lines of “Fat shame who?” to silence any further critique. Considering I didn’t see any of those perpetually turning 7-Eleven taquitos in her claws, I don’t see what the problem is here. Girlfriend snacks like a pro!

Donald Trump Fires Anthony Scaramucci. Already.

Anthony Scaramucci has been relieved of his duties as the White House Communications director, ten days after taking on the role (technically, he hasn’t officially even started). Apparently, the move was made at the request of Trump’s new Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, who told staff today of the change. Apparently, Kelly informed Scaramucci of his removal right after being sworn in as Chief of Staff.

So much for the lack of chaos.

It’s not known yet whether Scaramucci will be re-assigned, or if he is simply straight-up out. Recall, too, that Scaramucci liquidated his company to join the administration and that his wife filed for divorce last week, purportedly because she hates Trump.



Meanwhile, the role of White House Communications Director is vacant. Does that mean that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the de facto head of the entire comms department now?

Kyrie To Pelicans For Boogie Because He Played ‘House Of The Rising Sun’ On Snap

I’ve been taking a bunch of shit for not being in on the Kyrie media circus train so let’s jump on it and get a piece of this action. Let’s jump to conclusions. Let’s read into things. Let’s irritate Cleveland fans. Let’s cause Cleveland fans to get emotional. Let’s cause Cleveland fans to click.

So I was over on Reddit this morning and noticed this Kyrie thread where he was in a Snap with “House of the Rising Sun” playing. HUGE SIGNAL. HUGE TELL.

Let’s go the the lyrics from The Animals:

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin’ man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he’s satisfied
Is when he’s on, a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

There it is…Kyrie to New Orleans and the new rumor is that it’s for Boogie and spare parts. How does this lineup look, Cavs fan? It’s gonna happen. Hidden messages for days.

Playwright And Actor Sam Shepard Has Died

Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard

This news is bound to hit hard for a lot of different people: fans of plays, fans of films, fans of guys who look handsome in cowboy hats and/or pilot gear while appearing in films. A family spokesperson has confirmed to Variety that playwright, actor, director, and screenwriter Sam Shepard has died at the age of 73. Sam died at his home in Kentucky on Thursday from complications from ALS.

After dropping out of college for agriculture, Sam left for New York City and became involved in the Off Off Broadway theater scene and began writing plays. Sam Shepard was a legend in the theater world. He wrote forty-four plays, like Buried Child (for which he won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama), Curse of the Starving Class, Fool for Love, True West (the play where John C. Reilly and Philip Seymour Hoffman would occasionally switch parts), and Cowboy Mouth, which he wrote and performed in with Patti Smith.

And then Sam Shepard got into movies. If you’ve ever taken a high school or college film class, then the name Sam Shepard is no stranger to you. He co-wrote several films, including Paris, Texas, which is one of those movies that will either make you shrug or get weepy just thinking of how good it is. And he acted a lot. Sam was in Days of Heaven, Fool for Love, Crimes of the Heart, Steel Magnolias (Spud Jones!), The Notebook, the first two seasons of Bloodline. He also appeared as Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff, for which he was given an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Sam Shepard is survived by his three children, the first of which he had with O-Lan Jones, and the following two with Jessica Lange (Sam and Jessica ended their 30-year relationship ended almost eight years ago).

My first introduction to Sam Shepard was in Baby Boom, and that’s still my favorite Sam Shepard moment. He plays the handsome quiet veterinarian that Diane Keaton falls in love with when she bails on her fancy stuck-up snob life in Manhattan for her baby food company in Vermont. Any other actor might make you think “Why the hell is his leg up on the table like that?“, but not Sam Shepard. Sam Shepard doesn’t need a reason to do anything.
