Daredevil Robbie Maddison Is Your New Dick Clark

Celebrating the New Year has always been an excuse to give in to our more self-destructive tendencies. You willingly go to a bar or a friend’s place, try to ingest as much beer or champagne as possible, attempt to hook up with either random strangers or acquaintances from high school who didn’t get fat, all […]

It’s no coincidence that It’s A Wonderful Life is the movie of choice during the holiday season; the combination of Christmas and New Years inherently lend themselves to themes of rebirth and second chances.

Catching Up With Craig James, Whitest Man Ever

During his heyday with the Patriots in the 1985-86 season, Craig James was known throughout the sporting world as “The Great White Hope” because of his odd pale skin color in a position dominated by, well, less white folks.

HBO Dipping Toes Back In Sports Comedy Pool?

There’s a reason popular art is cyclical. Everyone from the mightiest pharaoh to the lowliest peasant runs out of ideas; even the beginning of this sentence is stolen. When in dire straights, executives take old ideas, put a shiny new twist on it, and trot them out as fresh products. So it’s no surprise that […]

Sometimes, that means the hilarious comb-over. Other times, it’s the toupee that gets the call. […]
