You Don't Have To Like Football To Like This GIF Of Naya Rivera Cheering For Her Brother

I do love watching people being joyous and celebratory, especially when they’re celebrating their family member’s accomplishments.

Beyonce Gave U. Michigan A Big Shout Out, And In Exchange They Just Had To Give Her Their Souls

Puppy Bowl IX: Let’s Pick The Players Most Likely To Win MVP

Puppy Bowl IX: Let's Pick The Players Most Likely To Win MVP

Most of the reason I find it important to know when the Super Bowl is every year is that a much cuter event happens on the same day.

Fun Game: Penn State Riots Or Occupy Wall Street?

Fun Game: Penn State Riots Or Occupy Wall Street?

When looking at photos of last night’s Penn State riots, I was struck by how similar they looked to a very different protest currently happening all over the country, namely Occupy Wall Street. So what if one group of rioters wants the reinstatement of a football coach who mishandled a sexual abuse case, while the other wants more controls on capitalism’s ability to ruin regular people’s lives?
