Spread the Love It can be easy to forget that professional athletes are actual human beings. They are larger-than-life figures (literally) who perform such incredible feats with their bodies that we tend to mythologize them.

“Shut up and dribble!” How about no, you pea-brained ignoramus. In case you’re out of the loop, the cretin in question is Laura Ingraham, a meaner-spirited and less accomplished Megyn Kelly clone who currently hosts a Fox News talk show called “The Ignorant Angle.” I’m sorry, that was supposed to be “The Ingraham Angle,” but […]
