    There are plenty of ways to lose a basketball game but this loss by an Oklahoma high school basketball team might be the most painful. Let me set the scene: the day is last Thursday and it’s the class 3A semifinal between Hugo and Millwood. Hugo has a 37-36 lead with about 3.7 seconds left…

    The greatest thing about the video below is this: from now on every time someone inputs the words “North Korea” into a search engine, a link to this video will come up. Can world peace be far behind? The folks over at Supreme Comedy created this video game parody, and with lines like “As is…

    Charles Barkley and Alec Baldwin recently filmed a commercial for Capital One that had Baldwin claiming to be a gladiator of bocce ball, ‘in his day’ as Barkley looks at him like he’s a insane person.
