The Big Lead’s PM Sports Roundup, which really wants to be an arbitration-eligible baseball player right now.
Kebbel in Fifty Shades: The criminally underrated Arielle Kebbel is apparently in the next Fifty Shades of whatever movie. She also looked fantastic at the Golden Globes over the weekend:
If there was ever a time to celebrate being a woman and the power of the divine feminine, it was at the this years @goldenglobes 🖤🙌 Sunday night, I felt the safest and the most free I have felt in a long time. I didn’t feel the need to protect myself & my body w/ a layer of masculinity & sarcasm, like I’ve had to do in the past. I had the comfort of knowing that on this particular night… no man dare say or do anything disrespectful to me. And that freedom felt so damn good. I know it’s only the beginning of this new era. I know we have a long way to go. But we are so ready. To the women who’ve led us to the @timesupnow movement, I support you, I stand w/ you & I’m forever grateful to you for leading the way. To the men who are supporting us… thank you for seeing the importance of your part in this 50/50 movement. To any woman, anywhere, who’s felt anything less than 100% safe showing up for work … I’m sorry for all that you’ve gone through & put up with. I felt a shift Sunday night. It’s the beginning of the end of the way it’s been. And I too, (thank you @oprah 😉 have faith there’s greatness on the horizon for all of us… Thank you @taraswennen @sunniebrook @fabianamilazzo.la @casadeiofficial @leesavage_official @gismondi1754 @dena_kemp @tinakskin #goldenglobes #afterparty #timesup #whywewearblack #sisterhood
Donaldson gets paid: The Toronto Blue Jays and third baseman Josh Donaldson shattered the record for arbitration-eligible players on Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $23 million deal. That’s just insane.
Kyrie learns from Instagram: Celtics guard Kyrie Irving claims Instagram taught him the Earth is flat. Crazy coincidence, but Twitter is where I learned gravity is a myth, Friendster is where I found out heliocentricity is a government plot and Tinder is where I learned most of my friends have absolutely zero shame.
