One day, you realize how absurd your current mindset is, that this shit doesn't matter. You let your demons go, knowing that, perhaps, sharing your story can help some other chubby, goofy, socially-isolated, sensitive kid getting bulled in America who feels like no one in the world cares about him.
As I drove past our neighborhood elementary school, I flashed back to when I used to drive by with our younger son strapped into his car seat. Each time, he asked me when it would be his turn to go to the "big kids' school." Last week, my husband and I delivered him to the real "big kids' school," the University of Miami.
Summer is never ever a good time to wear business attire as a guy in New York City, especially when you ride the subway to work every day. That's because guys don't wear dresses. We wear dress shirts.
Nicole R. Fleetwood calls her latest book On Racial Icons: Blackness and the Public Imagination, "an act of love." But readers may end up referring to it as tough love.
About a month ago, we were watching the NBA finals and enjoying the back and forth battle between Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors vs. LeBron...
"This is the best night of my life," Amy Schumer addressed the exuberant crowd at Alice Tully Hall on Tuesday for the world premiere of her romantic comedy, Trainwreck. Director Judd Apatow stood nearby feeding the comedienne lines, reminding her to thank Universal and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, hosts of the spectacular launch, including the lavish after party at the refurbished Tavern on the Green.
To my mind, Trainwreck is both a very funny movie -- and yet another example of Apatow's inability to edit himself. Like every movie he's made, this one has several big laughs -- and could easily be 20 minutes shorter.
LeBron James is back in Cleveland. You can put your photoshopped pictures of him in your favorite team's jersey in your trash folder. It was pretty much a done deal that he would return to Cleveland even after he opted out.
"I usually don't f**k with the internet, but Nate, Zoe, Danez, and Gabe are on to something. Reading Beale Street Talks is my favorite way to spend an afternoon." - James Baldwin, 1968
José is more than an amazing pitcher, he is an amazing friend, and when I found out that our Legends of Wrestling show was returning to Marlins Park on July 31st -- and that was José's birthday -- I was ecstatic and wanted to give something back to him.
Bernie is a great guy, but he is no Steph Curry, and he is no Alison Bechdel. His value, not to be underestimated, is in pressuring the frontrunner by energizing progressives.
LeBron is not a horrible player. He is one of the best of our time. However, announcing himself as the best player on Earth whilst being unproven in the Finals as well as having a bevy of contestant in what is probably the most competitive league we've ever seen just seems plain foolish.
LeBron James made a statement after the Cavaliers lost in Game 5. He said that he was the "best player in the world." On Tuesday night, he watched the best NBA team in the world hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy on his own home court.
As the Golden State Warriors prepared to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in this year's NBA Finals, most were preoccupied with the matchup of Stephen Curry vs LeBron James. I found myself more fascinated in each player's individual talent level and skill set.
One win away from winning the title, the Warriors really have nothing to lose. They head back to Cleveland to play Game 6 on Tuesday. Then they head back to Oakland on Friday for the final game of the series if necessary.
We are a sports-obsessed nation that doesn't know how to talk about sports. Take, for instance, the NBA Finals. The series isn't even over, and yet, the legacy of LeBron James is already being re-litigated from Cleveland to California.
