Seeing as I think both of these names are the.most.ridiculous.shit.ever. it's a tough call. But I'm going to go with the triumph of spirit that is Va'Shaundya Karlette Nelson. The Karlette is really what puts it over the top for me. I appreciate it. I respect it. I want to lay with it ask it if its everywhere it wants to be. I want to cook that name breakfast then not tell anybody I know it. I want to take Va'Shaundya to brunch and put it on a table then turn on Snootie Wild's "Yayo" and watch it twerk for the Vine. I feel that strongly about it and for that reason, I think its the name that can't lose. - Panama … [Read more...] about VSB Presents: The #BlackestName In America Tournament – CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND
It is safe to assume that the original idea behind Twitter was not to create an unprofitable social-networking platform that drives people insane. The original idea, which was also the original idea behind Pop Tarts and Advil and the Scrubbing Bubbles family of household cleaning products, was to create something that would become popular enough to make money. But the ostensible value proposition for Twitter, back when people still believed that such a thing could be said to exist, was that it would bring people together. People were most definitely brought together, and then they more or less immediately began trying to sell each other bogus health supplements and sending each other unsolicited nudes and threatening in credible ways to kidnap each others’ pets. The human capacity to create things has long outstripped the human capacity to actually cope with those creations, and the story of human history is at least in part the story of people trying to figure out how to live … [Read more...] about This Is “This Is March”: Unpacking College Basketball’s Most Uncanny Twitter Account
Despite what that may sound like, this process does not involve murder. Per civic duty—as with our previous March Madness brackets, most recently Pre-Apocalpyse vs. Post-Apocalypse—you’ll be voting in Jezebel’s Cancel Bracket 2019. The internet gave cancelation a new life in 2019 and made cancel culture a word of the year. Now we must choose: Who or what should be canceled? … [Read more...] about Welcome to Jezebel’s Cancel Tournament 2019
"Yes, I used to do porn because I was interested in experiencing it," she said, "I think if some of my more critical viewers asked themselves what they'd do if given the same opportunity, they might notice we have some similarities. I'm really a nice person, who plays video games, streams and happened to do porn when she was younger. I don't think these things define me, so being harassed doesn't bother me very much. I'm also an Aries, a Radiohead fan and a devoted dog owner." … [Read more...] about They’re Attractive, They’re Women, And They Play Games Live On The Internet. But They’re Not ‘Camwhores.’
The Liberty are well aware of Han’s potential to introduce the franchise to millions of new fans (and thus dollars) in China. In early May, the team invited the Chinese National Team to New York for an exhibition game. The event functioned as both a coronation and reunion for Han, who found herself under a spotlight uncommon for 14th overall picks who have yet to play a single WNBA game. She spent the pre-game galloping between warmups and meetings with the press (more than 100 reporters were credentialed). The stands were divided between Liberty and China fans, and Han received the loudest applause of the night when she was introduced in the starting lineup. … [Read more...] about They Want Her To Be The Next Yao Ming, But What Does She Want?
A wire-to-wire (foul-fest, timeout-filled, commercial-break heavy) battle ended in Jim Boeheim making a number of very Jim Boeheim faces and a relatively easy call for the refs: Jordan Morgan taking a charge from Brandon Triche with 20 seconds left, which, in hindsight, finished off Syracuse. Michigan rode Mitch McGary to victory and got much-needed three-point shooting off the bench, overcoming a rough performance from recent Wooden Award-recipient Trey Burke and team-wide woes at the free throw line, where the Wolverines shot 11/20 (2/6 in the final 48 seconds). It'll be Michigan vs. Louisville on Monday, and your guess is as good as mine. For everyone's sake, let's hope this kid shows up again. … [Read more...] about Michigan Misses All The Free Throws, Wins Ugly Against Syracuse Anyway
