Heart-Breaking Loss for USC and Sam Darnold’s Heisman Hopes

Oh man, that was a tough bl**dy loss for the #Trojans. Poor #SamDarnold, there really was too much pressure on the kid all along. #USC #WSU

RIP Hugh Hefner

RIP #HughHefner. I'll leave it to others to unpack his complicated legacy. As a boy he seemed epitome of cool & then, inevitably you grow up

3rd-Greatest Celeb Sighting, Ever!: #JJAbrams hangin' with #Bleachers. Super nice. I resisted the urge to freak out into a puddle of tears!😁

Tangerine (The Fonda Theatre)

#Tangerine (@FondaTheatre): Groovy basslines, bangin' floor toms, reverb-y jangly guitars, catchy hook-filled melodies. What's not to like?πŸ˜„

The World Had All the Fun at the Laver Cup

It was amaze-balls! 🎾 Europe may have won, but World had *all* the fun. PS. Where will post-#Brexit #AndyMurray be slotted?! 😁 #LaverCup

Laver Cup Was Fantastic (But Could Use Some Tweaks)

It was great! I'd follow #RyderCup model & ensure everyone plays at least once (#Shapo! #Tiafoe!) & last day should be a mad rush of singles

Victoria & Abdul

#VictoriaAndAbdul: I'm such a sucker for these Dench-led charming British period dramedies that subtly subvert (or reinforce?!😳) Colonialism

Poor #Canelo, came out firing, got gassed, & #GGG took him apart. Close fight but #Golovkin won. 118-110?! That's what makes #boxing a joke!

Canelo-Golovkin Match Completely Overshadowed

What happened tothe #Mayweather-#McGregor #ESPN #boxing "experts?!" #Canelo-#GGG gets nary a mention on @PTI, @AroundtheHorn or @HQonESPN?!

RIP Harry Dean Stanton

RIP #HarryDeanStanton. No one in American movies had a face, & a screen presence, quite like he did. Hollywood's a lot less interesting now.

Brad’s Status

#BradsStatus: Wow! Bow down to the indie film G*d that is Mike White! Hits so close to home that it hits bone. Kids Abrams & Raja steal it.πŸ‘

Kvitova Redlines For a Massive Win Over Muguruza

Not sure if #Kvitova will win the #USOpen, but given everything that's happened to her, the win over #Muguruza has to be one of her biggest!

What Makes West Indies Beating England a Grand Upset 4/4

Maybe #WIndies upsetting #ENG not hugely historically significant but the sort of feel-good sports story we could use more of these days 4/4

#WIndies: Everyone's sentimental favourite team, played with bold determination and panache after *no* one gave them any chance. #ENGvWI 3/4

What Makes West Indies Beating England a Grand Upset 2/4

#WIndies: No 8(/10), 2-19 away, missing all their big-names, lost last test to #ENG within 3 days (losing 19 wickets in 1 day!) #ENGvWI 2/4

What Makes West Indies Beating England a Grand Upset 1/4

#ENG: No 3, 22-7 at home last 5 years, efficient highly-paid Test #Cricket *machine*.  #ENGvWI 1/4
