The “American” food at NFL games in the U.K. is not not accurate

See that hot dog up there? That’s being enjoyed by an American football fan at Wembley Stadium, whilst he watches the Tennessee Titans play the Los Angeles Chargers on October 21.

Booze is to Steph Curry as spinach is to Popeye, according to Draymond Green

Thank you, USA Today, for bringing our attention to this most entertaining Draymond Green interview from ESPN’s Sam Alipour. They wear Mario and Luigi hats. It’s charming.

Pizza Hut resurrects nightmarish Cheesy Bites Pizza because… no sports today? 

On Monday, Pizza Hut announced it was bringing back the pizza that stares at you, officially known as Cheesy Bites Pizza, for a limited time.
