Is it October yet? Chapman vs. Harper sounds really good

Is it October yet? Chapman vs. Harper sounds really good

So, the August 1st non-waiver trade deadline is fast approaching and this week two contenders have made major moves. The Blue Jays acquired a much-needed right-handed outfield bat in oft-underachieving Melvin Upton, Jr. (good this year, though) and flipped reliever Drew Storen to the Mariners for the probably more dependable Joaquin Benoit. Meanwhile, the Cubs [...]

Dems stabilize chaos at DNC with choice speakers–for now

Dems stabilize chaos at DNC with choice speakers–for now

It was an absolutely surreal setting in Philadelphia as Democrats kicked off their convention on Monday. After the Wikileaks hack of Democratic National Committee emails and exposed bias against Bernie Sanders, chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was going to step down after the convention. She didn’t even make it that far when she was booed loudly in [...]

Surprise ‘Justice League,’ ‘Blair Witch’ footage arrives

Surprise! Yup, there’s always a lot of surprises to come out of Comic-Con, but people this year were floored when Justice League footage was released at the event. Granted, the look at Justice League kind of upstaged the release of the first Wonder Woman trailer, but it was worth it. It seems like Zack Snyder, [...]

‘Trek’ wins the box office, but the franchise is slipping

‘Trek’ wins the box office, but the franchise is slipping

Star Trek Beyond won the box office this weekend, but it seems like the Trekkie brand may be losing a little steam. The third movie of the rebooted franchise and the first of the new films to not have J.J. Abrams as director, the film took in an estimated $59.6 million. That’s a solid opening, [...]

Donald Trump, the ‘crossover’ candidate who just missed the mark

Donald Trump, the ‘crossover’ candidate who just missed the mark

Donald Trump did a capable job in the most important moment so far of his political career, perhaps of his life. His acceptance speech Thursday ran too long and it probably could have been a little better organized. Except when he talked about the victims of criminal illegal aliens, he probably didn’t show enough emotion in [...]

Would go see ‘Ghostbusters,’ but since we’re just ‘sexist’…

Would go see ‘Ghostbusters,’ but since we’re just ‘sexist’…

This stuff has got to stop. Especially on the left, the tactic of calling virtually anyone who disagrees with you a racist or a sexist has gotten way out of hand. There are some people that claim literally any criticism of President Obama is racist. If you’re for making people show ID at the polls, you’re racist. [...]

Could ‘Pokemon Go’ be your ‘October Surprise’ in 2016?

Could ‘Pokemon Go’ be your ‘October Surprise’ in 2016?

Every cycle the pundits in any election look forward to an “October Surprise,” an event late in the game that could change the course of the entire race.

The Bucks’ Jabari Parker, not feeling ‘safe anymore’ because of the police

The Bucks’ Jabari Parker, not feeling ‘safe anymore’ because of the police

21-year-old Jabari Parker waded into the political debate over the police shootings and Black Lives Matter over the weekend. Parker responded to former Congressman Joe Walsh’s “look out Obama” Tweet after the Dallas officers were shot, informing him Parker and the city of Chicago, where Parker is from, had Obama’s back. Seemed warranted, considering how Walsh’s [...]
