As most Americans are doing this summer, I've been watching the 2016 Olympics. A time that only comes around every four years, the Olympics offer the chance to get acquainted with unfamiliar competitive sporting events like ping pong, trampolining and equestrian dressage; an event where a horse prances around the inside of a square sandbox. (The stadium was filled with what had to be 85 percent passersby who only came in because they were promised a free soda and hot dog if t
I believe Kanye West Rants to be a national treasure, worthy of showcase inside Washington, DC’s most important museums. I’d suggest the placement of transcripts of major Kanye-Rants a few rooms away from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or at least next door to First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2013, Thom Browne inauguration coat.

Last night I joined American sports fans in watching the wonderfully well-known rivalry between racket wielding sisters Serena and Venus Williams. The two Compton raised tennis players faced each other for the 27th time in their professional tennis careers in the quarterfinal of the Women’s U.S. Open Championship.
Much has been made in the sports world about Serena’s chasing several women’s records including the possibility of completing a sweep of all major tennis champion
Me and my friends have a group text thread. It’s six of us in it. The “group chat” as my wife calls it, is where we learn of the latest internet memes, Vines, new music and share stories about the impact gentrification is having on the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Yesterday, in the group chat, I learned that Aubrey Drake Graham had been caught by TMZ in a restaurant making out with tennis super star Serena Williams.
I’ve thought many things to myself about Drizzy Dra
