We’ve got the meatiest sports news and a hefty serving of pop culture scoop to win at small talk, so read on!
Start the next six years of the new presidency on a good note by getting your culture fix at The National Museum! Admission to its museums nationwide is now free of charge beginning July 1—no better time to see The Spoliarium!
Miami Heat superstar Dwayne Wade is allegedly in talks to possibly joining other teams...like the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks. You think he’s serious, or is he just playing hardball to get more cash?
We may have varying opinions on John Cena’s capacity as a wrestler, but as an all-around guy, he’s pretty dope. Just watch him bring the “Unexpected John Cena” meme to life below!
This German beer ad is probably the most hilarious thing we’ve ever seen today.
Kanye West has just inked a new deal with adidas, launching adidas + KANYE WEST, a whole line of YEEZY-branded sportswear and street wear for both men and women. With the team-up touted by the athletic brand as “the most significant partnership ever created between an athletic brand and a non-athlete,” you think this’ll make the elusive Yeezy Boosts, well, easier to snag?
If you haven’t yet seen Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale, skip this one. If you have, well, you remember that scene when Cersei’s mysterious gigantic armored bodyguard, the resurrected Gregor Clegane AKA The Mountain, finally takes off his helmet before torturing Septa Unella? You can’t see his face since that shot was so dim, but if you’re curious, here’s a photo showing the brightened results. No wonder he never takes off his headgear!
Speaking of Game of Thrones, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the series, apparently got the highly coveted part while sporting a black eye...which he got from a brawl in McDonald’s. “I got in this fight with this guy at McDonald’s,” he said in an interview. “He quite quickly started to be really rude to the woman I was with, then he called her something like an ugly pig... So I called him up for a fight, which I had never done before. He got up and he just kept [getting taller] and I realized that I had to, at that point, throw the first punch otherwise I’d look like a complete wimp. And I got battered.” No hard feelings from The King of The North: He thinks his shiner helped him nab the part.
If you’ve been keeping track of the Euro Cup, you have to keep an eye out for Iceland. This first-timer was off to an impressive start, beating Austria and England to inch its way to the quarterfinals. But it’s their badass victory chant that really endears them to us, with all their fans joining them for a Viking-themed endgame cheer. See it for yourself!
Tony Hawk may be pushing 50 (yes, he’s that old), but that’s certainly not stopping him from duking it out on a skateboard. Watch him land a perfect 900 below at age 48:
Olivia Munn is the gift that keeps on giving and giving...and giving. Just look at her in a teeny tiny bikini. And have we mentioned that she’s 36? Jesus.
Even X-Men isn’t spared from Deadpool’s shenanigans: The cheeky anti-superhero appeared at the end of the Japanese trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse to give some “fun facts,” like the fact that he and Psylocke are “katana twinsies.” Sounds like something only Deadpool can pull off!
Speaking of Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling has come up with an brief background of Ilvermorny, The American version of Hogwarts that will be featured in the upcoming flick Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. You can even get yourself sorted into your Ilvermorny house on Pottermore!
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not easy being a celeb, with rumors, stress, and paparazzi camera flashes following you everywhere you go. And while you can’t easily weasel your way out of the former two, 28-year-old Saif Siddiqui has come up with the “anti-paparazzi” ISHU scarf, which has light-reflecting crystals sewn into its fabric, rendering flash photography useless. It’s not an invisibility cloak, but good enough.
