Geno Smith "Sucker Punched"
It’s no secret that the New York Jets are often considered the circus act of the NFL, and that theory was proven true once again last week. Arguing in the locker room on Tuesday, reserve linebacker IK Enemkpali “sucker punched” (former) opening day quarter back Geno Smith in the face, fracturing Smith’s jaw in two places. Needing to undergo surgery, Smith will now be sidelined for an estimated six to 10 weeks. Apparently the altercation arose after Enemkpali confronted Smith over $600 Smith owed him for a plane ticket he was supposed to use to travel to Enemkpali’s football camp last month. Smith never showed up at the camp after a close friend of his died in a motorcycle accident days before his scheduled appearance. Since Smith didn't show up he agreed to reimburse Enemkpali the price of the plane ticket, but had not as of Tuesday. Let’s see what shenanigans the Jets pull next.
Last week, Courtney explored the question at the top of everyone's mind: Is the Taylor Swift phenomenon nearing its end? Will she soon begin to lose popularity?

Broadly-speaking, I think there are three types of pop acts.
Professional football is back! Well, sort of. The NFL preseason kicked off on Sunday with the annual Hall of Fame game in Canton, OH, where the Minnesota Vikings beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 14-3. Now that NFL fans have had their first taste, they're dying for more. Thankfully, many only have to wait until tomorrow night for their hunger to be satisfied since 12 more NFL teams will take the field for the first time ahead of the 2015 season.
