The mean things we say about athletes on Twitter dosen’t seem so bad when the players we talk sh!t about. Read what tweets offend them aloud on a funny late show by with a studio audience laughing. So thanks for that Jimmy Kimmel.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Will Smith got a chance to show the trailer from the new movie his is starring in produced by Jimmy Kimmel. Featuring the one and only Metta World Peace. I have a feeling it’ll be going straight to DVD or iTunes, but I could be wrong. I’m probably not wrong.
Last night twin brothers Jason Collins and Jarron Collins were guest on the Jimmy Kimmel show to discuss Jason coming out as the first openly gay athlete in major american sports as you might have guessed. Plus, Jarron got the cool “I’m the straight one” t-shirt you see above so he never has to answer the question everybody probably wants to ask him, when they see him in public assuming his Jason. Hilarious! Check out the entire interview below.
The big basketball news of the week continues to be veteran NBA center Jason Collins coming out as the first openly gay professional athlete in the four major American sports. As you would expect with news of this magnitude, Collins is now a highly sought after man for interviews and George Stephanopoulos for Good Morning America was first in line. The entire interview was pretty informative and among the many topics they discussed. Collins’ choice for wearing number 98 this past season was one of the most interesting discussion points.
“Jersey 98 for Matthew Shepherd and also for The Trevor Project. And they were formed in 1998. So for those two significant events in my mind — in history of America, period. That’s why I wore jersey 98. And also to mess with the refs, because I do have a tendency to foul a lot. But– no. But– no, but the primary reason was, every time I put on that jersey I was already making that statement to myself — and to my family.”
In this great excerpt from the new E:60 interview Dywane Wade did with Lisa Salters from ESPN. Find out what issue Wade was dealing with entering his eighth season, that was bigger than making sure LeBron James and Chris Bosh were on the same page. I guarantee you will have more respect for D.Wade the family man after watching this interview.
