Last night on the Emmy’s, Billy Crystal gave a very moving tribute to one of his best friends, Robin Williams. He started with a story of he, Robin and Whoopi Goldberg in the booth at a New York Mets game.
He told of how Robin took on the character of a Russian baseball player and how Robin actually ended up getting a foul ball that was rocketed into the booth while they were in there.
Eric LeGrand may have been injured and paralyzed from the neck down four years ago (he’s since regained movement in his shoulders and some sensation throughout his body), but his sense of humor definitely hasn’t taken a hit since.
During the end of the horrible MTV Video Music Awards last night, Beyoncé was in the middle of her 15+ minute performance when Eric LeGrand chimed in on Twitter during Drunk In Love.
This was the ad that was in the July 17 edition of the Metro paper that is given out free on the subways in England. This is clearly some sort of a variation of a football jersey to us, but apparently to our friends across the pond, this is a baseball “tee”.
Also, that would be $41.48 for that bad boy. Deal of the century, no?
UPDATE: 50 Cent Challenges Floyd Mayweather To Read One Full Page Of A Harry Potter Book For $750,000
50 Cent was the latest celebrity to jump on the awareness wagon for ALS after he put a new twist on the #IceBucketChallenge.
In fact, he completely did away with the ice bucket all together.
He challenged Floyd Mayweather to read one full page of a Harry Potter book without messing up. If he could do it, Fiddy said he would donate $750,000 to any charity that Floyd chooses.
This week’s Hump Day Hottie was brought to our attention by the fine folks over at Heavy.com. Lindsay Higgins is, or was, or still might be, the girl friend of Ben Scott. Ben Scott was a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise. According to Wet Paint, he may have been given the boot from the show because they found out about Higgins.
Nicki Minaj released her highly anticipated video for her single “Anaconda” off her new album The Pink Print and it’s everything you thought it was going to be after seeing the album art.
Nicki leaves very little to the imagination while rocking thongs and what not and she should be commended for showing that badonk instead of hiding it.
Thunder Treats Podcast Episode 081: Back From Summer Vacation, Johnny Football, Christy Mack, Braxton Miller, Ferguson & A Brand New, Very Graphic, Catfish Update
Welcome to episode 081 of the Thunder Treats Podcast! We are back from our two week summer vacation and we couldn’t be happier to be back to record for you guys. It’s been a long two weeks and we spend the first 10 minutes or so updating you on what we have been up to. Some of us had a not-bummer-summer vacation while others had a bummer-summer-vacation.
We also tried something new this week, instead of writing down our topics and going through them in order, we wrote them down and put them in a hat. That way we jumped around from entertainment to sports without knowing what our next topic would be. I think it keeps it fresh and since I run the show, that’s how we’re gonna do it!
