Chris Brown stays in some foolishness

9:50 AMHappy September, kiddos. In all honesty, if you are headed to school today or have kids going back, good luck and have fun. If not, you can be just like the rest of us, lamenting all the stuff you didn’t do this summer that you said you would.

Larry Sanders is a fascinating individual. Not just because he had the courage to walk away from the NBA when he didn’t feel mentally stable enough to play. Nor simply due to the fact he’s got an interest in fine art or dabbles as a musician. It’s because he considers himself a young entrepreneur. It’s well within his right to use the cash he’s made in the NBA as seed money for his projects, so why not? Being a pro athlete at one point of your life doesn’t mean you’re beholden to it forever. VICE Sports‘ Mike Piellucci chronicles Sanders’ continuing growth.

Well, that was a doozy. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reignited his base Wednesday night in Arizona, just hours after what seemed to be an about-face regarding his feelings on immigration in Mexico. There, he held a rather awkward news conference with President Enrique Peña Nieto in which he said the wall on the border he has such high hopes for was never even discussed. Anyway, Wednesday night was a return to form, complete with someone calling for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s death from the crowd. Here’s the fact check on what Trump said and ABC News’ Rick Klein has an analysis.

Chris Brown’s summer is not ending well. The entertainer was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, which is never good. The scuttlebutt of the story is a tad strange, but what in Hollywood isn’t. The woman who accused Brown of doing so is also a pageant queen who’s been accused of stealing luxury items in the past. So whatever dispute there was over a piece of jewelry in his house, who knows who’s telling the truth. The accuser’s name is Baylee Curran and she talked to Good Morning America about the experience.

James Harrison would like you to know that he is a clean. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker took to Instagram to make sure that once he was cleared of any wrongdoing by the NFL in a situation stemming from an accusation of using performance-enhancing drugs based on an Al Jazeera report, the world absolutely never forgot it. We tried to tell him he had nothing to lose by talking to the NFL about the allegations, and we were right. More specifically, every current player mentioned in that report is in the clear, ESPN reports.

Coffee Break: My feelings about the Harambe meme have been well-outlined in this space (if you’re new here, I love it all), but this latest news is almost too much. The Philadelphia Zoo has a new baby gorilla. They’re having a naming contest. This is not a drill.

Mother of four was pushing a stroller

9:50 AMHappy September, kiddos. In all honesty, if you are headed to school today or have kids going back, good luck and have fun. If not, you can be just like the rest of us, lamenting all the stuff you didn’t do this summer that you said you would.

Larry Sanders is a fascinating individual. Not just because he had the courage to walk away from the NBA when he didn’t feel mentally stable enough to play. Nor simply due to the fact he’s got an interest in fine art or dabbles as a musician. It’s because he considers himself a young entrepreneur. It’s well within his right to use the cash he’s made in the NBA as seed money for his projects, so why not? Being a pro athlete at one point of your life doesn’t mean you’re beholden to it forever. VICE Sports‘ Mike Piellucci chronicles Sanders’ continuing growth.

Well, that was a doozy. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reignited his base Wednesday night in Arizona, just hours after what seemed to be an about-face regarding his feelings on immigration in Mexico. There, he held a rather awkward news conference with President Enrique Peña Nieto in which he said the wall on the border he has such high hopes for was never even discussed. Anyway, Wednesday night was a return to form, complete with someone calling for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s death from the crowd. Here’s the fact check on what Trump said and ABC News’ Rick Klein has an analysis.

Chris Brown’s summer is not ending well. The entertainer was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, which is never good. The scuttlebutt of the story is a tad strange, but what in Hollywood isn’t. The woman who accused Brown of doing so is also a pageant queen who’s been accused of stealing luxury items in the past. So whatever dispute there was over a piece of jewelry in his house, who knows who’s telling the truth. The accuser’s name is Baylee Curran and she talked to Good Morning America about the experience.

James Harrison would like you to know that he is a clean. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker took to Instagram to make sure that once he was cleared of any wrongdoing by the NFL in a situation stemming from an accusation of using performance-enhancing drugs based on an Al Jazeera report, the world absolutely never forgot it. We tried to tell him he had nothing to lose by talking to the NFL about the allegations, and we were right. More specifically, every current player mentioned in that report is in the clear, ESPN reports.

Coffee Break: My feelings about the Harambe meme have been well-outlined in this space (if you’re new here, I love it all), but this latest news is almost too much. The Philadelphia Zoo has a new baby gorilla. They’re having a naming contest. This is not a drill.

Snack Time: Ever since he and Jay Z broke up, Dame Dash has been out to prove to the world that he’s a successful, relevant individual. Presumably, his new “brutally honest” TV series in development will help.

Dessert: The Buffalo Bills have three black quarterbacks. Read about them here.
