Quidditch being the only sport I follow, I don't know a lot about Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Mike Evans, but I do know he's my favorite NFL player because of his epic Harry Potter groom's cake. Dude is apparently a huge fan, and he isn't afraid to show it.
Ma'ake Kemoeatu has always been on the lookout for his brother Chris. As the eldest of seven siblings, Ma'ke felt it was always his duty to look after the rest of his family - going so far as to receive a game suspension after improperly providing Chris textbooks to finish his schooling.
So when Chris began suffering greater and greater problems from his kidney - flareups and near-constant pain that nearly prevented him from playing the game and forced him to retire early - Ma'ake stepped up and provided the organ for transplant.
According to their doctors, the two brothers are recovering well. Clearly this is one family willing to step up for one another.
Hey WINners! Today we have a collection of some of the best advertisements from The Big Game that have made their way to the internet already. Because really, who cares about sports-this and ball-that when you have cool ads, right? Right?
Or maybe that's just something nerds say while eating free party-sized sub sandwiches at the homes of their Patriots-loving friends. MAKE OF IT WHAT YOU WILL.
If you stepped outside your mid-January, Netflix-addled cave recently you probably heard something about Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, and his devastating botched attempt at taking home the W last weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. To put it lightly, it was an unanticipated moment of sheer unfettered insanity.
A 27-yard-attempt miss. Nobody saw that coming. Check out this absurd compilation of fan reactions from both ends of the spectrum:
Anyways following all that madness, a first-grade class wrote a collection of encourage letters to Blair Walsh to cheer the saddened soul up. He responded in pretty much the best and most gracious way possible by visiting the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minnesota.
Always be cautious when talking to your Lyft driver, especially if they're asking very specific questions about a very specific sports figure, and especially if they tell you to sit in the front seat. Actually, if they insist that you sit in the front seat, you should text a friend and let them know what cab you're getting into. It's not that you should be afraid of making a new friend, but that driver could be none other than NFL superstar and New York Giants wide-reciever Odell Beckham, Jr.
I know. It sounds crazy, but it happened, and you know what, Lyft filmed it.
What would you do if your favorite — or worse, least favorite — athlete was behind the wheel? Would you tell them to their face what you think of them? Probably not. You'd probably freak like these people. Why? Because that's what people do when they meet celebrities. They freak like these people do.
