If there is one thing makes the Washington Wizards better than any other team in the NBA, it is unquestionably Gilbert Arenas' Instagram account, especially during the postseason. Arenas' hilarious antics on social media in the face of teams and players going up against the Wizards is a trend that began during last year's playoffs. While the Wizards took on the Chicago Bulls on the basketball court, Arenas took on the Chicago Bulls on his Instagram. Later in the next round, Gilly promptly destroyed destroyed Roy Hibbert after his terrible start to the series. This year, Arenas remains unrelent ...Read More »

Sound waves of ESPN reporter Britt McHenry verbally humiliating a clerk at a towing company surfaced the Internet today and as you'd expect, there was absolutely no mercy on her. McHenry's diatribe on the poor lady offered plenty of quotables, most of them obnoxiously exalting herself as an educated news reporter, and one that wouldn't work in a "scumbag place" like a towing company.

And so the lightbulb above my head sparked and I immediately took the liberty of taking McHenry's godawful quote and applied ...Read More »
