It’s a new season at Saturday Night Live, and the trending commentary is not good for last Saturday’s season premiere.
In it, the writers and actors “spoofed” the ongoing problems the National Football League has been having with its players. Players like Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and their ilk have all been in the news, both on and off the field, and none of it is good.
The skit involved football players introducing themselves, and instead of saying the name of the school they attended – which is the norm – they recited charges against them.
Not a lot funny there. But check it out for yourself. See if you don't agree...
A contract employee for the FAA started a fire at the Air Route Traffic Control Center outside Chicago on Friday that grounded or rerouted thousands of flights on Friday. The disruption lasted into the weekend.
Authorities were alerted to a problem when a family member told them about a Facebook post the contractor had made. "Take a hard look in the mirror, I have. And this why I'm about to take out ZAU and my life." ZAU refers to the control center.
Looks like we’re going to have to start demanding that air traffic controllers pass through TSA checkpoints just to get into work.
First, there was Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Some now call that film a cult classic.
That was followed by Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.
And now, 23 years later, they're talking about Bill & Ted 3.
Yup. That's what Alex Winter - the co-writer and co-star of the first two films - told Yahoo! Movies yesterday.
According to Alex, the script's been in the works for a long time, and will feature 40-something Bill and Ted."What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”
That's Alex's tease for the movie. He says Keanu Reeves is on board to reprise his character, and they have a director, producers and financiers lined up as well.
All they've got to do is come up with a final draft of the script, and they're in business.
And that's when we'll all see if this is a good idea or not.
Ever wonder what NBA players do with their downtime?
Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder plays NBA video games on his PlayStation. On The Tonight Show this week, he told Jimmy Fallon he's really good at it. In fact, he and some of his friends have summerlong tournaments.
Except for his brother, who gets too intense and might break Kevin's TV.
Oh, and by the way, Kevin doesn't play as himself. That would be "kinda arrogant." So instead, he plays as LeBron James.
And in case you missed it, Kevin is this year's cover model for NBA2K15. Check out the trailer for it. Yes, a trailer, for a video game...
