Last night, it was announced that as many as 20 Major League Baseball players may be suspended from the league for their connection to a clinic in Miami that's involved in a performance-enhancement drug scandal. Among the players up for suspension are New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez and Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun. Others include Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli, Mariners catcher and first baseman Jesus Montero, Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta, and Padres outfielder Everth Cabrera.
Some players may even be suspended for as many as 100 games. These developments came as part of MLB's investigation into Biogenesis Lab founder Anthony Bosch, who (allegedly) provided the performance enhancing drugs to the players. Because Bosch will cooperate completely with the investigation, the lawsuit MLB had filed against him will likely be dropped. If things continue along this path, this performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history.
What do you guys think? Personally, I think one commenter on ESPN said it best: "Stop this nonsense, I have a fantasy league to win."
Kelly Rowland, also known as one-third of Destiny's Child, has been making the rounds recently to promote her forthcoming album "Talk a Good Game" and tour with The Dream. Her new album features a few buzzed about songs, including "Dirty Laundry" (released in late May) which talks a bit about how Kelly envied Beyonce's solo career and "You Changed," which actually features Beyonce and Michelle Williams — an unofficial DC reunion!
Technically, the single isn't billed as a Destiny's Child song, but since it contains all of the elements, I like to count "You Changed" as the second new "Destiny's Child" song this year (following "Nuclear," which was featured on their compilation album). Plus they reunited during the Super Bowl, sparking rumors that a reunion was eminent... but to no avail. Still, I won't give up hope. So here are five iconic Destiny's Child, which I think also serve as five awesome reasons the group should get back together.

I went to my first NASCAR event last summer; it was a surreal experience because I expected it to be boring with cars just taking left turns at 200 MPH. However, I was blown away by how enthusiastic the fans were for the drivers they followed, as well as the atmosphere all over the area.
As soon as you come in through the parking lot gates there are massive rows of RV and campers staked out with their tailgating equipment in full swing. I expected people would keep to themselves and families, but during my first five minutes of walking around the tailgating area people would offer me a cold drink and ask what racer I was cheering for. A bit embarrassed, I would tell these kind fans that it was my first experience at NASCAR. As soon as I said that, they jumped up and were so excited to tell them about the sport and what drivers to watch for. I’ve never had this level of enthusiasm and kindness at any sporting even till now.
Over the weekend, Beyonce posted a photo of herself drinking wine with Jay-Z, supposedly to prove that she's definitely not pregnant. While I'm kind of bummed, the good news is that Jay and Bey's celebrity couple BFFs Kim and Kanye announced the gender of their baby!
I don't know about you guys, but I have been on the edge of my seat for weeks — weeks I tell you! — wanting to know if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be having a baby girl or a baby boy. (Just kidding.) On last night's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kim, Khloe, Kris, and Kourtney learned that Kim will definitely be having a baby girl! You know what this means, right? Blue Ivy will totally have a new BFF. Here's a list of names Kim and Kanye could potentially name their little girl:
Web series shows are a pretty big deal now, considering the prevalence of YouTube. They're usually cheap to make, funny, and go viral so much quicker than regular network television clips. "Convos With My 2-Year-Old" is a new one covering what it's like to talk to a two-year-old... as played by a grown man (wearing a pink clip in his hair). You really just have to watch. The series is only two episodes in, but it's already amazing. Check out episode one below, and if you like it, go back for episode two!
