When Siblings Score
Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos had just scored a touchdown to make the score of the Super Bowl 22 to 10 with only a few minutes left. The Broncos decided to go for a two-point conversion to put them up by two full scores, meaning the Carolina...

"Once You Stop, You Die"
One of my favorite late night segments is "Carpool Karaoke" on The Late Late Show with James Corden. James has an amazing talent, and a decent set of pipes. And he's able to sing along with and interview guests while navigating the streets of...
