Federer Beats Tiafoe 2017 Miami Open

Well done #Tiafoe! 👏 Kid went toe-to-toe with #GOAT & made him sweat to the very end. Doesn't get any easier #Federer might get #DelPo next!

Devin Booker Scores 70!

#DevinBooker is only 20 & scored 70?! That 3.5 age-score-multiple advanced stat will never be broken! Wait #Wilt's century was 3.85. NM...

Wilson

#Wilson: Perfect vehicle for Harrelson to showcase all of his considerable charm & an ensemble full of great actresses. Nice little film.

Kong: Skull Island

#KongSkullIsland: Thank G*d for Hipster Millennial directors and their sense of meta-nostalgia. Thank G*d for John C(ene-Stealin') Reilly!

Great Performance by Pujara and Saha

#Pujara's our last "pure" Test batsman. Great to see the kid disprove haters. Kudos to fellow bong #Saha...& the blasted #AUS-sies! #INDvAUS

RIP Chuck Berry

RIP #ChuckBerry. Discovered him thanks to my parents. Maybe he didn't *invent* Rock 'n' Roll, but where would music be without him? Legend.

Kyrgios Gives Federer a Walkover 2017 Indian Wells

Sigh it's always two-steps-forward-one-step back with immensely talented/mercurial #Kyrgios. #Federer momentum snapped. PS #Sveta-#Pliskova!

Federer Thrashes Nadal 2017 Indian Wells

O me of little faith! When #Federer plays at *peak*-#GOAT level even the mighty #Nadal has no chance! #Kyrgios tho is playing smart...uh-oh

Federer and Jack Sock Win Close Matches 2017 Indian Wells

Federer Easy First-Round Win 2017 Indian Wells

Poor #StephaneRobert, the veteran was no match for #Federer in full-#GOAT mode. #GroupOfDeath only gets harder with #Djokovic, #Rafa looming

10 March 2017

Lawrence Timmons Leaves the Steelers

Sad to see #LawrenceTimmons go. Underrated and essential part of the #Steelers defense, always there when you needed him. Sigh...#HereWeGo

Personal Shopper

#PersonalShopper: Scared the h*ll out of me…& forced me to think deep existential thoughts…so, a *French* "horror" film! Well done #KStew.

Federer Collapses Against Donskoy

To quote #LeeCorso: Not so fast my friend! #Federer collapses in very un-#GOAT-like fashion against #Donskoy Is it too early to panic?! #ATP

28 February 2017

Federer Beats Paire 2017 Dubai

No post-#GOAT-legacy-cementing dip for #Federer. Brutally efficient win over stylish Frenchman (aren't they all?) #BenoitPaire. #Dubai #ATP

27 February 2017

Get Out

#GetOut: Come for the meta-horror thrills, stay for the (truly) vicious social satire! Well done Peele! Gabriel & esp Lil Rel steal the show
