    I was catching the end of the NFL Draft and Denver with the last pick crowned Chad Kelly, QB Ole Miss, as Mr. Irrelevant. Has to be the most famous Mr. Irrelevant evah. From piloting the explosive Ole Miss offense, being the nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, and some early hype as a legit draft prospect to Mr. Irrelevant.

    On stage in a stadium in Soweto, the township at the heart of the uprising against apartheid, South Africa’s president, in a green and gold leather jacket, was dancing a Zulu war jig. A court order against ‘hate speech’ meant Jacob Zuma, a former cattle herder, was banned from singing his favourite ‘liberation’ songs, including Bring Me My Machine Gun and Shoot The Boer. But, after listening to speeches in which a succession of obsequious cronies described him as a ‘giant’ alongside African leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Zuma delighted supporters at his 75th birthday celebrations a few days ago...

    An endorsement deal with Nike, Under Armour or Adidas is not in the cards for Lonzo Ball. Ball's father, LaVar, confirmed that the three shoe and apparel companies informed him they were not interested in completing a deal with his son. Sources with the three companies told that they indeed were moving on.

    The most popular group in the second round of the N.F.L. draft was nearly 3,000 miles away from Philadelphia: the Washington Huskies secondary. Three members — cornerbacks Kevin King and Sidney Jones, and safety Budda Baker — were taken in the first 11 picks Friday night. But none of those choices drew the attention that Cincinnati’s pick at No. 48 over all did: Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, who was not invited to the scouting combine because in 2014 he had been filmed punching a woman, breaking bones in her face.

    Romance is in the air — and sometimes in the airport, according to an online flight-shopping service. About 1 in 10 American air travelers reports having had sex of some kind at an airport, compared with about 8 percent who are members of the Mile High Club, according to an important new survey conducted by a flight-shopping website.

    A Macalester College student organization referring to itself as “Stop White Noise” recently held a moment of silence to protest “the centrality of whiteness and Eurocentrism on campus.” “The intent of this action is to raise awareness of the space whiteness takes up in our classrooms and curriculum,” a website created for the organization explains, even revealing that protesters would be “entering various classrooms” with “the permission of professors.”

    Myles Garrett was selected No 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns as expected but that preceded a night full of surprises in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Texas A&M standout was widely regarded as the best available talent from this draft class and the Browns held firm to select the defensive end at No 1. However at No 2, the Chicago Bears traded up one spot and shocked the league by selecting University of North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

    Yesterday, it was announced ESPN is laying off upwards of 100 employees – many of whom are prominent on-air talent. The challenges facing ESPN are newly discovered; a lot has been written about ESPN’s recent decline in ratings and subscriptions. FOX Sports – the primary TV competitor to “the worldwide leader in sports” – has enjoyed twisting the knife as ESPN faces cutting on-screen talent to make up for budget shortfalls. The FOX blog “Outkick the Coverage” has attributed ESPN’s decline to the rising partisanship coming out of Bristol, labeling the network “MSESPN” in pieces like this one, headlined “ESPN...

    Much-hyped new National Geographic series Genius chronicles the life of Albert Einstein. The first episode premiered last night and right from its opening scene, in which the groundbreaking theoretical physicist has extra-marital sex with his office assistant, we know we’re probably not going to be subjected to long-winded digressions on the theory of relativity.

    The failing sports network ESPN, which is quickly losing its audience thanks to its overtly liberal pandering, has published a poetry tribute to a convicted cop killer who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list. Just a day before the network laid off 100 employees, including most of its on-air talent, it published five poems about feminism and political resistance on its website’s section aimed at women. This was first noticed by The Federalist.

    Students at the University of California Berkeley may not be able to hear conservative commentator Ann Coulter speak on campus — however, they can take a school-sanctioned course on a made-up language used in a popular HBO fantasy show. The university, already embroiled in a free speech controversy, reportedly plans to offer a six-week course inspired by the fictional Dothraki and High Valyrian languages used by characters on the HBO series Game of Thrones.

    The Browns are unofficially on the clock, but later today they will have the timer ticking down as they make their decision for the first overall pick. For weeks mock drafts have projected Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett to come off the board first, but recent reports are saying something else. North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is gaining momentum as the player Cleveland will take first. The speculation started last week when reported Trubisky is in "serious consideration by the Browns at No. 1." The report claims the team is scared the 49ers may take the QB at...

    If you haven’t heard by now, ESPN is laying off 100 members of their journalist and on-air talent staff today. One of the biggest names to be let go so far include Ed Werder, who found out that his dog is dying about 45 minutes before he found out he was fired from ESPN after 17 years of reporting. Other big names include Trent Dilfer, Dana O’Neil, Jeremy Crabtree, and Danny Kanell (amongst others). A quick perusal of Twitter will and you’ll see that one big name is noticeably missing from the list of fired ESPN on-air talent: Jemele Hill....
