Total Nonstop Action is a professional wrestling promotion that keeps trying to equal the fame and fortune of the biggest brand in the industry. But the WWE is a tough act to follow, and thus, TNA had struggled to fulfill this cause for the longest time.
To add insult to injury, WWE had reportedly put in a bid to buy the promotion. However, wrestling pundits criticize this move as it may put good sports programming out of business altogether.

Nick Young is no stranger to the bright lights of Hollywood. He headed to the Los Angeles Lakers off a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers, laying down roots in California's most famous city.
Much to his team's dismay, however, Young had been known more for his celebrity antics rather than exceptional play. His recent fiasco with ex-fiancee Iggy Azalea, even involving teammate D'Angelo Russell, had created a lot of buzz not just in the NBA, but on gossip sites as well.

The other day I was watching live coverage of the US Open. The cameras showed empty practice courts, as gusts of wind swept across them on a crisp September morning in Queens, New York. A time when the video crews can typically get a live, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the competitors, none were to be found due to the difficult weather conditions — that is none but arguably tennis' greatest player of all-time, Serena Williams, and her hitting partner.
