GOOD MORNING

Today, San Fran stays alive, Brian Cushing goes down, The BET  Hip Hop Awards!!!, and a Republican openly supports gay marriage.

******************************

Ever wanted to be the Red Sox GM? There's an app for that.

Bryce Harper is looking for a new hitting coach, kinda. Hopefully they choose someone who can help him, and the rest of the Washington Nationals, about Stephen Strasburg.

We've heard a lot about Vince Young recently, and one writer sees a similar story developing with Cam Newton.

Johnathan Vilma's suspension in relation to the Bounty case in the NFL has been upheld.

Is Mark Cuban the reason Deron Williams chose the Nets over the Mavs?

The San Francisco Giants stayed alive after falling in an 0-2 hole against the Cincinnati Reds. Barry Zito and Buster Posey will pair up despite limited time together for the Giants' next elimination game.

If you're attempting to rob a Land Rover, make sure the driver hasn't won world championship belts.

The Houston Texans lost LB Brian Cushing for the year with a torn ACL. In his memory, here's Cushing's insane “mic'd up” session.

 

FLASHING LIGHTS

The BET Hip Hop Awards premiered last night, with an opening from Wiz Khalifa and Young Jeezy. Kanye West didn't show up, but still won big.

The Cyphers were, as usual, a big hit. Did one steal the show?

As if the Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey hadn't already reached a high enough tolerance level, Stevie Nicks, of all people, got involved. People askin' questions, at this point.

Beyonce has left an empty chair on Clint Eastwood's set.

Olivia Wilde talks extensively about her vagina.

 

DID YOU REALIZE?

There's a big secret to the 2012 election. It's not just that this election is about the economy, it's that President Obama and Governor Romney basically agree on how to fix it, they just talk about it differently.

But it's the VPs who take center stage tonight in Kentucky, and the stakes are high for both. Namely, what will Joe Biden say next?

Hugo Chavez, the recently reelected leader of Venezuela, went in on the West during his post-election speech, lambasting Washington while lamenting the death of Muammar Gaddaffi.

Social media networks, including Facebook and Twitter, may be asked to improve monitoring on their sites to try and crack down on internet bullying/harassment.

The Mexican Navy managed to kill one of Mexico's biggest drug lords. They also managed to lose the body just after the attack. In Mexico, you win some and you lose some every time you take on the Zetas.

A Republican State Representative released a PSA supporting gay marriage. Hooray for individual thought.

 

EVERYTHING I AM

In light of Jerry Sandusky's 30-year sentence, here's Malcom Gladwell on how child molesters get away with their crimes.

 

GOTTA HAVE IT

Caught up in the BET awards? French Montana still dropped a new track, “It was a Good Year” with Curren$y and Mac Miller. Solid track. Shoutout to Ice Cube, though.
