NBA All-Star Weekend is more than just a game and a few associated skills challenges. It celebrates the entire NBA culture, and that includes its charitable side.

When I was 20, I came home from college with a broken finger. The doctor couldn't quite understand how a football caused a fracture near the knuckle of my ring finger. It made sense that he couldn't make sense of it. Because I didn't break it playing football. I broke it hitting Brad.
Tears stream down her face. She remembers feeling ostracized, alone and being verbally, emotionally and physically abused. "I want to die," she writes in one of her diary notes. Claire Tietgen is only 12 years old.

Five months after an impromptu, press-conference brawl, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and contender Daniel Cormier return to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on January 3 (10 P.M. EST, Pay Per View), to finally settle their score at UFC 182.
It's practically 2015, and we mustn't forget the Tiffany Pollards and Brooklyns of the world. It was the perfectly highlighted and coiffed Todd Chrisley who said, "You don't ever go out of the house with your snapdragon snappin.'" I will buy a round of beer for anyone who can translate that.
