New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci praised President Donald Trump for his competitiveness and athletic skill Friday.
During Friday’s press briefing at the White House, Scaramucci described Trump’s athletic prowess, saying he has seen the president “throw a dead spiral through a tire.”
“[Trump]’s the most competitive person I’ve ever met,” Scaramucci stated. “I have seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden with a topcoat on, he’s standing in the key, he’s hitting foul shots and swishing them. He sinks three-foot putts. I don’t see this guy as a guy that’s ever under siege. This is a very, very competitive person.”
During the parole board meeting that led to his successful bid for parole, O.J. Simpson claimed that he had led a “conflict-free life.” But the sister of murder victim Nicole Brown Simpson was outraged by the claim.
O.J. Simpson became embroiled in the “trial of the century” in the 1990s when he was arrested for the brutal murder of his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman. After weeks of a trial that was the fascination of TV channels everywhere, O.J. was acquitted of the murders, but there was other evidence that he perpetrated years of abuse against his wife.
It was this that Nicole’s sister, Tanya, responded to angrily after O.J. made a claim during his parole hearing that he has always been “good with people” Find Out More…
It’s going to take a lot more than a major motor vehicle accident to stop these guys from getting to a baseball game.
“These guys” happen to be brave veterans who had the misfortune of riding in a bus that got into an accident on their way to a Pirates game on Thursday. The bus carrying the vets had its roof torn up when it became stuck under a nine-foot bridge:
Here’s video of the bus getting pulled from the overpass on Merchant St in the North Side. 9 vets onboard and the driver are ok. #WPXIpic.twitter.com/K9VVpstZa3
NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated on Tuesday that betting laws on sports will change soon.
While sitting in on a panel discussion with three other top U.S. sports commissioners, the 55-year-old lawyer and former businessman said, “My sense is the law will change in the next few years in the United States.”
Silver, who penned a 2014 New York Times op-ed on the subject, wrote, “People want to bet throughout the game. … It results in enormous additional engagement with the fans.”
Silver further explained in his article that “the laws on sports betting should be changed. Congress should adopt a federal framework that allows states to authorize betting on professional sports, subject to strict regulatory requirements and technological safeguards.”
Friday on ESPN’s “First Take,” author and Georgetown professor Dr. Michael Eric Dyson weighed in on O.J. Simpson being granted parole Thursday after spending nearly nine years in prison for an armed robbery, saying that, collectively, Americans need to “figure out the best route to racial redemption and to true justice.”
“[Simpson] represents some of the most reprehensible ideas in America, as well as the fact that justice for the African-American people continues to lurk in the future,” Dyson explained.
He continued, “What we need to collectively as a nation is figure out the best route to racial redemption and to true justice, which means that these cases will become a thing of the past and O.J. Simpson will be Find Out More…
A Nevada brothel offered O.J. Simpson his first job offer since being promised parole from the Nevada prison system. But, even before the former NFL player could respond the offer went awry.
Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch house of prostitution in Carson City, Nevada, went public with an offer of a job that he thinks will satisfy several of O.J.’s parole requirements, gossip site TMZ reported.
“One of the conditions of a prisoner being granted parole is always having an established place to live and a job to go to, and I can offer O.J. both of those in a unique situation,” Hof said.
But the Ranch owner’s offer didn’t sit well with his other employees.

On Tuesday, Michael Vick suggested that unemployed former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick should “get a haircut” in order to help his chances of catching on with another team. On Wednesday, Vick clarified those remarks, saying his remarks about Kaepernick were not made “in malice.”
Not surprisingly, on Thursday, Vick came full circle and apologized for the comments altogether. According to ESPN, during an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Vick said, “At the end of the day, what I said, I should have never said. I think it was taken out of context in regards to what I was trying to convey, but I only want to help Kaepernick. I’m not a general manager, I’m not the guy who makes Find Out More…
It hasn’t been a great year for the San Francisco Giants. After winning the World Series every even year since 2010. The baseball Giants find themselves 22 games under .500 and 29.5 games out of first.
What happened to the Giants on Wednesday night goes a long way towards explaining why that’s the case.
During the 7th inning of the Giants game against the Indians, Cleveland’s Edwin Encarnacion hit a fly ball to left for the second out of the inning. Giants outfielder Kelby Tomlinson did what he’s supposed to do. He ran over and collected the ball for the out. The only problem?
Thursday on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption,” co-host Tony Kornheiser reacted to NFL Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson being granted parole after spending nearly nine years in prison for his part in a 2007 armed robbery.
Kornheiser said Simpson, who is eligible to get out of prison October 1, could become the most “consumed” celebrity because a network could offer him a reality show role.
“I can see him being the subject of his own reality show,” Kornheiser stated. “I can see a network going out there and saying, ‘Let’s just follow you around.’ And I can see him, he’s probably, if not addicted to fame, he’s lived in so much fame for so much of his life saying, ‘This is my justification, and I will be Find Out More…
