Leave a comment

Unless you’ve avoided the Internet, television and sports talk radio today, you’ve heard about D’Angelo Russell’s “prank” gone wrong.

If you’ve somehow missed the story, here’s a quick rundown: Russell recorded a private conversation with Nick Young — without his consent —  on Snapchat that revolved around other women Swaggy P knows. Young is engaged to Iggy Azalea.

Someone grabbed Russell’s Snapchat and sent it to a celebrity gossip site who then posted it on Twitter. While the incident happened weeks ago, a report came out last night with sources who said that Russell was being isolated in the locker room.

Well based off of the response from some NFL players, it’s a good thing Russell didn’t decide to play football for a living:

Jarrett Jack also weighed in:

The always hilarious Shea Serrano got in on the action:

Rapper Metro Boomin shared his thoughts and even Jimmy John’s sent something out:

Things haven’t gotten much better for Russell as apparently he needed some extra security to leave the Lakers’ practice facility:

Sports world goes all-in on 2017 solar eclipse

Leave a comment

Nick Saban may not have had any interest in checking out today’s much-hyped solar eclipse, but he seems to be the only one in the sports world.

At least according to these epic #SolarEclipse2017 sports Twitter moments.

The NASCAR community was on point with their eclipse celebrations, seriously you’re missing out if you’re not following any of these teams/drivers on Twitter.

But they weren’t the only ones.

Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Billy Horschel weren’t the only golfers taking in the views (with proper glasses), Tiger Woods bought into the hype too.

The Rome Braves had their break, but Bartolo Colon watching the eclipse will be your moment of zen.

And remember, if you were truly amazed by #SolarEclipse2017 goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has some more mind-blowing universal knowledge for you.

GILGO BEACH, N.Y. (AP) The son of World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon has been rescued unhurt from a helicopter that made an emergency landing in the ocean waters off New York.

Shane McMahon was the passenger in the Robinson R 44 helicopter that came down in the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island’s Gilgo Beach late Wednesday morning. The red aircraft could be seen bobbing on its bright yellow pontoons as small boats circled.

Shane McMahon is also a WWE executive. His mother is Linda McMahon, who heads the Small Business Administration in President Donald Trump’s White House.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the helicopter had taken off from Westchester County Airport in White Plains. The pilot issued a mayday call before going into the water.

It’s not yet clear what went wrong.
