Larry Bird is the greatest American sports star ever. Come at me. Read his story. His mom couldn't properly care for him during his early life. His dad killed himself. He immersed himself in basketball to make the miserable noise of his home life go away. Larry and his mom got to a better place later in life. As for basketball...you know the rest. Since the editing tool on this web editor clipped Larry's head in the top photo, here is the entirety of my most treasured celebrity interaction. At the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013, I was departing a brunch and jumped on an escalator. I could feel that someone was right behind me. I turned to see Larry Bird towering
Here's Air France flying a Boeing 777 into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on a visual approach to runway 24 Right. Terrific graphics and excellent sound allows the viewer to observe the pilots at work running through the landing checklist while acknowledging vectors in one of America's busiest airports. If you can forgive the shaky camera work, this is a great look at a crew taking another Boeing 777 into Chicago O'Hare Airport (ORD) runway 10 Center. The person holding the camera is doing the best they can but it should be noted that the passengers aren't shaking this vigorously on approach and after landing. This is an excellent pre-flight operations peek aboard an Aer Lingus Airbus 330 as the crew preps
🔥 Journalists cannibalizing each other is becoming common practice in the prestige motivated grandstanding realm. (See: Courier Journal woke writers vs WAVE3 headline authors). Today's top clickbait sport for newby activist journos is torching colleagues. WTTG/Washington news anchor Blake McCoy tweeted his thoughts on obese people getting COVID vaccinations ahead of some "essential workers." His bosses at WTTG have suspended the anchor for his tweet, even though McCoy deleted it and issued a subsequent apology. The twitter mob, always searching to scorch non-woke speech, mobilized quickly to take down McCoy. But then there's this guy...a fellow journalist whose twitter feed has been non-stop trashing McCoy as if his insensitive message is the only news item in the universe. I smell jelly, Chris Weidmer. Weidner,
Heavy snow falls. The solemn duty of shoveling the driveway becomes Job One. After a brutal hour of pushing away the frozen encumbrance, a drive by plow dumps another load of street snow all over your freshly cleaned private drive. What the what? It turned out the Snow Bully was my buddy The Beasman. He called me on the radio to laugh at my shoveling misery. LISTEN #GoCats #BBN #LarryMinner #NoCountLoservilleLover CATS WIN! CATS WIN! The Beasman sends a special shoutout to Ashley Judd for letting a gorilla snap her lucky wishbone so that the Cats could start winning again! 🏀 #840WHAS For the uninitiated, University of Kentucky superfan The Beasman loves to taunt U of Smell lover Larry Minner on
Writer Travis Okulski sneered online that a Pepsi Max prank video featuring Jeff Gordon was bogus. He couldn't fathom that the legendary race car driver would take an unsuspecting car salesman on a terrifying "test drive" without the salesman's prior consent. So one of Okulski's friends worked with Pepsi to trick his buddy in a command performance by Gordon. This time, the Hall of Fame race car driver was disguised as an ex-con driving a Yellow Cab. When a choreographed police stop sidelines Gordon and his unsuspecting fare, Gordon goes on another incredible driving adventure as Okulski begs to be freed. Enjoy the prank. The driving is real. Here's the original Jeff Gordon "test drive" that some skeptics like Okulski thought was staged.
The video above was presented by Democrats at the onset of the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump on February 9, 2021. Politics is filled with outlandish language and deftly tilted narratives, but video doesn't lie. Trump stirred the pot. His loyalists followed his directives and stormed the Capitol. 7 people died. Over 140 law enforcement personnel were injured or are suffering PTSD from the invasion. This is not a good look for the strongest republic in the history of the world. God Bless America.

Marlon Brando refused his Academy Award in 1973 for the lead role in The Godfather and had Native American Sacheen Littlefeather walk onstage instead. She delivered a quick message detailing how Hollywood depictions of Indians, Blacks, Asians, and many other ethnicities and cultures abused minorities by perpetuating racist stereotypes. Littlefeather, an Apache, couldn't deliver her full message because of time constraints but offered the complete text to the media following the telecast. In spite of her gracious delivery of Brando's intentions to refuse the award, some in the crowd booed. Some other Hollywood stars including John Wayne, Raquel Welch, and Clint Eastwood mocked Brando's crusade of enlightenment by cracking jokes later during the show. It was Hollywood's first massive WOKE moment at
The New Yorker has released reporter Luke Mogelson's video from inside the U.S. Capitol during the January 6 insurrection. Mogelson followed the invading Trump supporters as they breached the U.S. Senate chamber and rifled through documents and other intellectual property. It's a fascinating look at the outdoor rally and the ultimate overtaking of the Capitol as some security officers backed up, acknowledging invader warnings that "you're outnumbered." Mogelson used the video as a reporter's notebook for his comprehensive written piece "Among the Insurrectionists." Here's an excerpt: One of the insurrectionists is heard in the Senate chamber telling his colleagues, "While we're here we might as well set up a government." Zip Tie Guy Eric Munchel and his mom Lisa Eisenhart have both been arrested on a
