The video shows Rice doing the following during practices: shoving and grabbing players, hurling basketballs at them (at least once at a player’s head), and verbally abusing them by “screaming obscenities and homophobic slurs.” The latter refers to a word that begins with the letter F and ends with “got.”
The firing was announced via Twitter. I still find that odd although it is convenient.

This video, The Evolution of Dad Dancing from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, goes on a wee bit too long, but it’s worth watching for the names of the dances, such as (spoiler alert) “Imma Go Get a Beer.” It’s only 2 minutes. Enjoy.
Here you go. The new Man of Steel trailer. Aka The New Superman Movie.
There’s a lot of parenty stuff I could say about it. I will one of these days. For now, some thoughts.
Topless Robot’s Chris Cummins asks some good general questions: “Do you want an angsty bearded Superman? At some point in the film will he throw on Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and sulk? Will Lois Lane be moonlighting at Hot Topic in the movie?”
I had to look up the Joy Division reference. Here’s the album via YouTube. Read more »
The video will be after the jump. So you really can’t blame us at all.
We found it on Huffington Post’s “Weird News” section. Not that we ever read that sort of thing. No. Not here. Of course not. Ahem.
