The Day The Music Exploded • 8 days ago
Today marks the anniversary of one of the most insane cultural events of the late 20th century. We are of course talking about "Disco Demolition Night," which happened on July 12, 1979 between games of a doubleheader at Chicago's old Comiskey Park. The promotional event was the brainchild of two Chicago disc jockeys, and involved blowing up a dumpster filled with disco records in the outfield.

The NFL's Anthem Controversy • about 4 hours ago
The National Football League is shelving its new policy requiring players to stand for the National Anthem until it can work out an agreement with the NFL Players Association. Remember the olden days when the NFL was mostly about throwing and catching an oddly shaped ball, knocking people over, and offering Mean Joe Greene a Coke after a tough game?
