Pizza Girl Wins Kiss Cam

I feel like we should be friends.

If you're like me, and you only go to sporting events for the Kiss Cam, mascot races, and the hot dogs, then it's your lucky day, my friends, because this chick just slayed the kiss cam, with just two pieces of pizza and sheer creativity.


As for the pizza-loving chick in the vid, I really feel like we should be friends. Your friend in this video clearly does not appreciate your talents. Are you on Bumble BFF?

Dwight Howard Is Such A Cry Baby

So much wasted intimidation potential.

Dwight Howard has the potential to be the absolute scariest man in the NBA. Scarier than LeBron, scarier than James Harden, scarier than Gregg Popovich, but no, he has to go and sniffle and cry his way through an interview just because his team is down 0-2 in the first round of the playoffs.

Does he not know anything? He sounds like Shaq on Inside the NBA, which is not a compliment. You know if he starts saying anything except "I don't know," he is going to absolutely break down like Matt Damon does to Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting.

It's only 0-2 in a seven games series and it appears that Dwight Howard has absolutely given up. Stop sniffling and be the scary mothafucka you can be.

When John Wall sees this video, he is going to rip Dwight apart on the court. For his size, Dwight now looks like the least intimidating player in the NBA.

Congrats Dwight, Tyler "Psycho T" Hansborough has passed you on the intimidation scale. How does that make you feel?

Week 3 NFL Storylines

Is it panic time for Cam?

Week 3 of the NFL season is a Monday Night Football game away officially being in our rearview mirror, so without further adieu, here are (in my opinion of course) the biggest storylines from the 3rd NFL Sunday of the year.

Eagles 3-0 & top of the NFC East.
One week before the NFL season, the Eagles traded their presumed starting QB in an effort to free up some time for rookie Carson Wentz. The thing is, no one actually thought that Wentz would start Week 1 or he'd even be that good. Wentz has proved everyone wrong (but the Eagles, who traded up to take him 2nd overall). The Eagles are 3-0 and are in sole possession of first place heading into their bye week.

This division, thought to be a two-team race this year, is of course wide open. The Giants lost to the Redskins on Sunday who lost to the Cowboys (led by another surprising rookie Dak Prescott) who narrowly lost to the Giants in Week 1.

Yeah.

Fitzpatrick throws SIX interceptions en route to an 8 turnover embarrassment.
The Jets are just gonna Jet. Fitzpatrick hasn't exactly done much to justify the long hold out or the large contract and Sunday just added to it. Fitzpatrick had 15 interceptionss in 16 games last year. Through three he has seven and is on pace to throw 37. I'll just leave that there.

Oh and...

These damn Patriots keep winning.
Yes. The villainous Patriots somehow, to the disdain of Roger Goodell are on the verge of handing Tom Brady the keys to a 4-0 team. This is scary because it's Tom Brady and he's 100 years old and basically got four weeks extra rest. Brady's four game suspension was supposed to give either the Dolphins, Jets, or Bills a chance to compete for the division.

Yeah, not so much.

Terrelle Pryor puts up a historic stat line.
Yes, the once QB actually played QB again. (Sorry Tebow, you should've just made the TE switch, but now you're a minor league baseball player). Pryor had over 200 total yards between passing, rushing, and receiving yards. Oh, and he lined up at safety.

He's clearly doing well adapting to his new WR role, even if it is on the Browns.

What's going on in Carolina?
Last years NFC champions look nothing like NFC Champions. Cam Newton is getting hit on seemingly every other play and that has led to an unexpected 1-2 start. Is this the time to panic? Not quite sure, but at least history is on their side here.

Fantasy Football Week Four Preview

Follow this to win your week.

Fantasy Football week four is upon us and this post should help guide you to figuring out who you should be starting and sitting on Sunday.

QB Highlights
Cam Newton
With Aaron Rodgers out this week and Cam with a relatively easy matchup in the Georgia Dome, Newton becomes the top quarterback. Given the way Atlanta's offense has starter, I'm expecting a pretty high-scoring game here and Cam should be the beneficiary of that, especially because Carolina's run game will take a hit with the absence of Jonathan Stewart for another week.

Drew Brees
Brees is one of my riskier plays this week, even with the favorable defensive matchup. Thus far, he has been a top three fantasy quarterback and that bodes well for his weekly ranking, especially taking into account his incredible history as a player. But drawing from said history, Brees has always been much better at home than on the road, and that trend already began this year. It's visible when you compare his week one and three performances in New Orleans to his Week 2 performance in New York. He should post enough points to start, but don't expect him to carry your team this week.

Jameis Winston
Winston is ranked in the top 10 for fantasy quarterbacks this year, so dropping him out of my top 24 is pretty bold. I attribute this to the phenomenal Denver defense and my belief that Mike Evans will struggle being matched up with Aqib Talib and safety help over the middle. If they can neutralize Evans, Winston's in for a tough day, ridden with turnovers, which he's been prone to dating back to his time at Florida State.

RB Highlights
Le'Veon Bell
The Steelers are going to have a welcome back party for Bell this week, as he'll rejoin the team now that his three-game suspension is up. DeAngelo Williams was one of the league's best rushers during the first three weeks, and Bell is leaps and bounds ahead of Williams in terms of pure skill. The Steelers will look to get back in sync after a rough Week 3 outing against Philadelphia and Le'Veon Bell will help them do so. It wouldn't be shocking if he touched the ball 35 times this week and that keys him in for a high fantasy point potential.

Jamaal Charles
Charles is set to make his return against the Steelers for Sunday Night Football this week. Many are projecting him to get a small workload and be rather ineffective and while it's certainly possible given it's his first game back from ACL surgery, I'm fairly certain the Chiefs wouldn't bring Charles back unless they knew he was ready to assume his starting role. Keep in mind, his postponed start to the season came after reports that he'd be ready to go Week 1. Luckily, the Chiefs depth at the position helped them get Charles the added necessary rest, and so if he is truly healthy, even a semblance of the player he was prior to the recent surgery within the Chiefs offense against an average Steelers front seven should post nice a nice fantasy number this week.

Orleans Darkwa
This is a fairly risky play this week, but the Giants backfield is really banged up. Darkwa seems to be the only rostered running back over the past three years who hasn't gotten a serious look in the starting role. I think that changes this week, in order for the Giants to compensate for their injuries, and while he won't absolutely wow anyone, it's hard to imagine him being any less serviceable than the likes of Rashad Jennings or Shane Vereen. If that's the case, he's a decent RB2 play.

WR Highlights
Marvin Jones
Jones has been terrific in the attempting to achieve the difficult task of attempting to fill the shoes Calvin Johnson left behind. He's definitely Matthew Stafford's number one receiver and he should have a lot of targets coming his way this week as the Lions take on a weak secondary in Chicago. This looks primed to be a blowout though, so I'm thinking most of his fantasy points comes early on Sunday.

Terrelle Pryor
Pryor will be a popular DraftKings play this week, given his role in the offense last week. The opportunity to get both quarterback and number one wide receiver exposure from him make him almost a must-play as a WR2. Washington's defense (particularly their secondary) hasn't been as great as fans had hoped after their offseason add of Josh Norman, and Pryor will get his chance to expose them this week.

Quincy Enunwa
You might be shocked to find Enunwa as the only Jets receiver on the list. This is because Eric Decker is hurt this week and Brandon Marshall has underperformed and will likely continue to as he'll be matched up with Richard Sherman this week. The Seahawks secondary has come out as tough as ever, but the game-plan for most teams squaring off against them will continue to be to throw the way opposite Sherman (toward Jeremy Lane) and that's where Enunwa will be frequently this week.

TE Highlights
Rob Gronkowski
Last week, the news that Gronk was returning came with jubilance for fantasy owners, until a few hours later when that jubilance turned into frustration and disappointment. He only played 14 snaps and put up a goose egg. This may cause some hesitation for fantasy owners to start him this week, but as he gets worked back into the offense, I think he connects on a few passes from Jimmy Garoppolo this week and returns to fantasy relevance.

Confessions Of A Former Cam Girl

Hustle for the tokens.

I'll set the scene for you: a broke college student who needs to put food on the table, with a schedule so swamped that it's hard to set aside hours outside of classes, schoolwork, internships and campus work studies to work a part-time job while at school.

Would love to quickly say: believe me, we tried getting those jobs, but even meager four hour shifts is a lot of time out of the day if you're super busy always.

Anyways, fast forward past some agonizing over my bank account, deep research and talking to my friends who are cam models, and I decided to make an account on a cam site and become a cam model.

"What's a cam model?" you might be asking. A cam model is essentially somebody who gets naked on cam for money, and depending on the "donation" (as they're called), will do various things on the cam. As I've said before about other forms of sex work, not really a big deal.

On most cam sites, a model will go live in a big chatroom, be on cam and talk to viewers and perform when they've made their donations. There is typically a list of set prices for different things, and many models are very clear on their boundaries, though they are sometimes open to off-list requests if things are within those boundaries.

The website that I initially registered for was different, being very one-on-one. You would message or chat with people solo, and do only private cam shows for an agreed upon price per minute and time. You could also easily sell pics and videos. It really was a good deal. For reasons I will disclose later, I chose to leave the website and register elsewhere on a site with the big chatroom style.

As I crawled my way towards the finishing line of undergrad, I decided to quit camming and snooped about for freelance work (that's another story for another day), and I probably won't ever go back. The money was great, and I didn't hate the work itself, but it just wasn't for me and I wasn't happy to go live on the site anymore.

However, I did learn some really interesting things about the camming world, about life in general and even about myself while being a cam girl:

People love to waste your time and/or try to rip you off.
If I had gotten a dollar (or some tokens) for every time somebody said they'd pay me for something (it is a general rule to pay the cam model before they do anything for you) and then vanished, I'd never have to work again in my life.

There's plenty of people on those sites who are general time-wasters, which makes little sense to me when they're already agreeing to pay somebody, but whateverrrrr.

Some users of these sites will also absolutely read your prices and try to haggle with you. Every so often I'd be a little lenient if they really seemed like they'd come back to buy more (proceed with caution due to above), but most of the time you just gotta put your foot down and say, "These are my prices, and they are not changing."

That person will probably not buy, but there's always somebody out there who will.

It was definitely super annoying though, and on the first website I was on, other models began selling content for so cheap that nobody was willing to pay prices that were even slightly higher, so I ended up leaving and moving on to the second site (people thinking a dollar a minute for a ten minute show is a good offer are out of their minds).

People are gross.
Nobody who will be paying you on that site is into vanilla stuff. I will tell you that right now. Nobody. Not even a little bit.

This all makes sense, and it isn't like nobody knows this, but it can totally be startling to a new model who may not have begun to fathom the depths of depravity lurking on those sites. Obviously you can state boundaries, but there are people looking for some wild content on there.

Nothing is off-limits as long as it is within the site's rules (because the sites do indeed have their own regulated boundaries, thank god).

An example: I once had to record a video of myself peeing. Just peeing, nothing more. It was definitely weird but I was like, "Money is money" while totally wondering why people are paying for that.

I won't get too graphic, but people will ask for unconventional use of toys, things that can substitute as toys, lingerie or things totally wilder than can be said even on here (geez). You either just gotta step up and pretend you enjoy it for that cash, or quickly and firmly set the boundary. Needless to say, you learn about what makes you uncomfortable fast.

People are annoying.
Like in all service jobs, you must be nice to the customer (with a little more leniency since you're in charge here, hotshot), and that gets difficult. Between the people who are just downright rude (I'll get to them later) and the people who for some reason are trying to wife you up and/or meet up in real life (NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS, NOT EVER), sometimes you'll go online and just be thinking "you are damn annoying" the entire time.

For some reason, they all think they're perfect gentlemen (or gentlewomen) on there.

Unfortunately, customers like nice people, so you have to slather on your biggest smile and play nice. Somebody's messaged you five times in a row asking if you're online?

Hi, how are you? Someone keeps pestering you to meet up and be their "plaything"? As great as that sounds, you don't do meet-ups, sorry! Someone relentlessly sexting you on there and you aren't into it? Ooh, you're bad, I want to...

Gotta brush up on your acting skills here.

Regulars are amazing.
With all that being said, juxtaposed to annoying, gross time-wasters are people who can't give you enough money. I wish this was a problem I had all of the time (but with no work in return for said cash).

These people are the best. Usually they're very sweet, respectful and want to throw money at you because they think you're hot and/or want to see you do stuff they like. They also, like... talk to you about stuff and actually care? It's wild.

Always proceed with caution, naturally, but accept that ego boost, baby, they'll make you feel like a million bucks (and hopefully give you lots of money to start working towards having a million).

You must be devoted to your craft and have a thick skin.
Another part of the reason I ended up leaving the cam world was that I ended up not really having the heart for it. To be successful on there (as in, make salary income on there), you have to be devoted. You have to be designing pro pages, bundling up content and doing whatever you can to make money and keep people coming back.

Sex work is way harder than most people realize, like, all facets of it. You have to actually try, and I ended up so annoyed and disillusioned that I was over it.

Part of this is because you have to have thick, thick skin to be on there. I'm not really the type of person to take things strangers say to heart too often, but there's totally the occasional person on there who will harass you. Everybody is hiding behind a mask of anonymity: the customer and especially you yourself (stage names and fake locations, people!), so naturally, humans say, "I can be a total garbage can and get away with it."

I didn't really want to be told about people's fantasies of assault against me, or about anything that was blatantly not OK to say to another person. It only happened twice in my six-month run, but it was twice too many times.

I am much more confident now.
I've spent a lot of time dwelling on the negatives of camming, but I learned a lot about myself through it. Aside from being more comfortable with myself, I've seen how it's changed how I function in the real world, too. I was a push-over before, but now I'm not as meek, I'm less willing to be pushed around, will put my foot down more and I just feel more confident overall.

A lot of the negative things I've noted here are super distorted versions of real-life situations too (minus any sexual factors, probably). When aren't people trying to waste your time or rip you off? When aren't people annoying? You should probably work hard at your job, and having a thick skin is kind of necessary in this day and age.

By learning how to deal with the extremes on cam sites, I feel way more up to handling the much, much, much tamer real life scenarios.

Being a cam model may not have ended up being for me, but I don't regret a thing.

French Tennis Player Banned For Trying To Kiss A Reporter

What did he think was going to happen?

After his French Open loss to Pablo Cuevas, 21-year-old Maxime Hamou was interviewed by reporter Maly Thomas. The video is in French, so some of us might not learn anything from what they are saying; however, just by watching you can see a perfect example of how not to act during a post-match interview, or even just in life in general.

For some reason, Hamou decided to try to kiss Thomas. When he went in the first time, Thomas pulled away and continued on with the interview, then did the same thing after his second attempt to kiss her.

When Hamou went in for a third time, he also took it upon himself to grope her, and that was when she fully pulled away and the interview ended. It was very clear that she wanted no part of that, but she did handle the situation very well.

Because of his childish PDA attempts, the French Open revoked Hamou's accreditation, banning him from the tournament. I don't feel bad for ya, Hamou..

In college, I studied Journalism so I've had my fair share of interviews, but, luckily, I have never been kissed or grouped during one! Thomas handled the situation just as a reporter should have.

However, after the uncomfortable unfolding of events, Thomas told reporters, "If I hadn't been on air, I would have punched him." Same, girl.
