Deez Nuts for President
Presidential hopefuls better be on the lookout for “Deez Nuts.” And no, I’m not trying to make some sort of crude joke; Mr. Nuts is actually a 2016 presidential nominee, who, according to Public Policy Polling is polling at 9 percent in North Carolina, 8 percent in Minnesota, and 7 percent in Iowa. In the end, it turns out “Deez Nuts” is actually a 15-year-old from Iowa named Brady Olson, who is about to begin his sophomore year of high school. Unfortunately for supporters of “Deez Nuts,” he has 20 more years to go before he’s actually eligible to become president, but hey, 9 percent ain’t bad.
We've posted about this before, but it keeps happening. An artist will be playing a show, minding their own business, when suddenly they meet up with the edge of the stage and take a tumble. In the end, it's usually no big deal. The artist will get up and continue on with the performance. But it is interesting to see, if only because it proves that they can be clumsy just like the rest of us (okay, maybe just me). Here are 10 more incidents.
The world is full of brother and sister superstars. Whether it be in Hollywood, professional sports, or music, talented genes are often shared among siblings. In no particular order, let’s take a look at six famous pairs of brothers and sisters.
Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal
Born to television and film director Stephen Gyllenhaal, Jake and Maggie were born into a life filled with lights and cameras. Maggie made her acting debut in the 1992 film Waterland at the age of 15, which was directed by her father. Her brother Jake made his acting debut a year earlier in the comedy film City Slickers, which starred Billy Crystal. The two then acted together in the films A Dangerous Woman and Homegrown, both of which were directed by father Gyllenhaal. As of 2015, Maggie has played a handful of major acting roles, including inSecretary, Sherrybaby, and The Dark Knight. However, Jake has won this sibling rivalry, starring in movies, such as The Day After Tomorrow, Brokeback Mountain, Jarheard, End of Watch, and Southpaw.

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.
