Any time someone channels their inner Stone Cold Steve Austin I’m going to approve, but when that someone is a beautiful woman in lingerie who just won the MVP award of a football game, it makes my heart want to explode with joy. If Alli Alberts isn’t your new favorite athlete then I don’t know what’s wrong with you. She’s pretty, she’s tough, she chugs beer, she plays LINGERIE FOOTBALL. That’s a checklist that Bill Paxton himself invented to make people like me happy. Besides the fact that Alli is now my favorite athlete, she’s single handedly redefining how you should celebrate being named MVP of a game. If the NFL did this, or any sport for that matter, they’d have a lot more viewers. What’s the harm in chugging a beer? Hopefully nothing since I’ve chugged about 1,000 in my lifetime, but it brings a sense of fun to the game, and someone who works so hard that they got named the most valuable player should be able to let loose and have a beer after it. I applaud Alli Alberts and the Lingerie Football League for being forward thinkers, and I look forward to watching more of these games in the future.

Why, LeBron James, of course.
On Wednesday, the National Basketball Players Association announced that NBA players will be able to vote in their own regular-season awards, called the “Players Choice Awards,” for the first time this year.
James told ESPN that he knows exactly who’d get his vote for MVP:
James said that players can’t vote for themselves for awards. But who would his vote be for MVP this year?
“Myself,” James said.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star added that he strongly supports the idea of players voting for awards.
“Guys are going to be able to recognize the guys they play against every night and what they do for their franchises,” the four-time MVP told ESPN.
Everybody give Lebron James a big round of applause. He somehow got an impossibly talented team to second place in the incredible Eastern Conference where only 5 teams are above .500, so obviously he should be the MVP. And just like Kanye loves him some Kanye, Lebron loves him some Lebron. Just like every other team Lebron was ever on, I hope the Cavs get mauled in the playoffs, which probably won’t happen until the second round since the team they play in the first round will most likely end up with more losses than wins on the season. I know teams have no control over how sucky the rest of the conference is, but they do have control over thinking they actually accomplished something this year. Lebron, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love make up three of the starting five players. You could realistically put me and Matt at the other two positions and win 40 games in the Eastern Conference. Since they did not do that, they have JR Smith and Timofey Mozgov round out the starting five, and although his name is spelt kind of stupidly, Mozgov is a pretty decent center. I’m not drinking the Lebron for MVP Kool-Aid, and I’m much more interested in guy’s like Steph Curry and James Harden, who actually play in a real conference.
