Casual Dining Restaurants, Ranked Casual Dining Restaurants, Ranked

A couple days back, Complex published an interview with Allen Iverson, which you should most definitely read, if you want. In it, there were lots of good tidbits, but perhaps the primo tidbit came when Iverson swore his allegiance to T.G.I. Friday’s, which is something (erroneously!) attributed to him here and there…

Real Madrid visited Italian side AS Roma today in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie and beat the home side, 2-0. The first goal was a dang thunderbastard from Cristiano Ronaldo. You should see it. You deserve to see it. Here it is:

French Champions Beat English Midtable Side

Today in the Champions League Round of 16, Chelsea, an English midtable club best known for generously overpaying players and whose name was uttered alongside words like “relegation” just weeks ago, bravely stormed across the English Channel to take on French champions Paris Saint-Germain, who have had Ligue 1 wrapped…

A month and a half after getting flatlined by Conor McGregor with the first punch landed in the biggest fight of the year, former UFC featherweight titleholder José Aldo broke his silence last week, demanding that his next fight be for the featherweight strap and/or a rematch against McGregor.

Young Child Who Gets The Living God Nutmegged Out Of Him Must Now Quit, Learn Viola Young Child Who Gets The Living God Nutmegged Out Of Him Must Now Quit, Learn Viola

Generally speaking, youth sports are about fun and fitness and finding a bit of self-worth in a big, strange world, and perhaps—perhaps—discovering an activity that makes you Feel Something. But generally speaking—generally speaking—the stakes ain’t that high, and they’re not supposed to be.

Macklemore's Problem Is That Macklemore Is Bad

Last night, white rapping man Macklemore released a song called “White Privilege II.” The song, which is accompanied by a website, is earnest and ostensibly aims to acknowledge and condemn the very white privilege from which Macklemore profits. It is a bad song. To examine how we got to this point, let’s start in the…
