Top 5 Reasons the NFL Preseason is Worth Watching

The NFL Preseason officially kicks-off its full schedule tonight (if you don't count the Hall of Fame Game from last Sunday) and I could not be any more excited. Sure, preseason games don't really count, but there are still plenty of great reasons to be invested in the preseason this year. Here are my top five reasons why you should be watching:

Cures Your NFL Football Withdrawal

When the clock hit zero in the Super Bowl on February 2nd, football fans everywhere immediately went into football withdrawal. Sundays were not the same. Monday nights were not the same. Food stopped having flavor. Colors were not as bright. The last two may be a stretch, but not by much. While the preseason is just exhibition games, getting to see your favorite players suit up and hit the field still gives you that dose of football that you were longing for.

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing? (A Complete Guide)

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing

It's a question many have been wondering, especially since the elevator incident: are Jay Z and Beyonce splitting up? Here, I'll break down everything surrounding the billionaire couple, rumors, speculation, and fans included, so you can become the resident Jay Z and Beyonce expert at your next family party/company event/watercooler conversation.

The Elevator Incident

This is really what started the whole 'Jay/Bey are done' rumors. It happened back in May, when some security footage leaked from a Met Gala after-party. There's no audio in the video, but it clearly showed Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange (Beyonce's sister) on an elevator. Solange was yelling, and then she went after Jay Z. Theories behind why the bizarre 'incident' took place include:

1.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

2.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rachel Roy.

3.) Jay Z was with Rachel Roy back in the day, and bragged about it the night of the Met Gala.

4.) Jay Z disrespected Beyonce in some way, cheating or otherwise, and Solange was sticking up for her.

5.) Solange's behavior that night is normal for her.

6.) Blue Ivy is actually Solange's daughter and now she wants custody?

7.) Solange's kid is actually Jay Z's and she's tired of hiding it?

8.) Solange and Jay Z were arguing over something Illuminati-related?

As you can see, things start to get weird, fast. This doesn't even include the joke theories! That said, all we officially know is what the three of them have said — essentially nothing.

Yet that hasn't stopped rumors from circulating that Jay Z and Beyonce are definitely, probably, maybe going to break up, separate, renew their vows, have another kid, or divorce soon, in the future, or never.

Top 5 Couples in Country Music

Best Country Couples

Celebrity couples just make sense, right? They "get" one another. They get what it's like to be adored. They get what it's like to lack privacy. They get what it's like to roll around in money (I'm assuming). There's an added layer of compatibility when the two celebrities are not just famous, but come from the same industry. So these five country couples just make sense.

Johnny Cash + June Carter

Johnny Cash and June Carter are kind of the quintessential country couple. They first met in 1956 when they were both part of the Opry company; by the 1960s, Cash and Carter were regularly performing together. In 1968, Cash proposed, and the two were married a month later. The couple was married for 35 years, and they were the subject of the 2005 film "Walk the Line." During their professional career, Cash and Carter also won prestigious awards for their duets "Jackson" and "If I Were a Carpenter."

Batkid Begins

You probably remember Batkid, the adorable 5-year-old who had leukemia and was subsequently granted a wish (as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation) to become a superhero. San Francisco was transformed to Gotham City, and Batkid came to the rescue, taking on villains and meeting his gracious fans. Well, his transformation into Batman is nearly complete — Batkid is getting a movie. "Batkid Begins" is an upcoming documentary about the day his wish came true. Batkid (real identify: Miles Scott) is currently in remission, so happy news all around!
