Did you watch the American Music Awards last night? That's okay, I didn't either. But I do know there are some things people are talking about — Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake walking away with the most awards, for example, and the sheer volume of performances. There were performances by Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, One Direction, Imagine Dragons, Arianna Grande, and Justin Timberlake, as well as these three people are still buzzing about:

I don't personally know much about sports, but I know an incredible catch when I see one. During a game between University of Central Florida and Temple, UCF junior wide receiver J.J.
