Conservative commentator Denise McAllister is no stranger to controversy, as evidenced by her recent feud with Meghan McCain. That’s a story for another day, though. Today, we’re here to examine something else she said recently that ended up giving her the wrong kind of viral fame.
McAllister took to Twitter to remind her fellow women how they should behave while their man is watching a big sporting event on TV. Prepare to roll your eyes in a MAJOR way.
Patience and timing, ladies…
Wow. Even as a man I think this is totally ridiculous, and I’m not alone.
Check out some of the reactions the tweet managed to get.
And even more people weighed in.
Apparently, McAllister later got into some hot water and was fired from her writing job at The Federalist for making homophobic comments as a result of the Twitter exchange above.

A maximum-security prison in Uganda has a soccer league (run and played by prisoners), with an annual soccer tournament. The tournament is taken very seriously; they have a uniforms, referees, cleats, and a 30-page constitution. The winning team gets prizes such as soap, sugar, and a goat.
Tony Hawk is a man of many talents. He’s easily one of the greatest skateboarders of all time, a video game tycoon (I literally grew up playing THPS, so good!), author, and businessman.
He’s a pretty famous guy whose name and image are pretty widely recognized… except when they’re not. For reference, here’s what he looks like:
But Hawk keeps running into people who have no idea that they’re dealing with the man himself. The skateboarding legend has taken to Twitter to share some of the funny stories of people not recognizing him in public.
And then there was this guy…
Bottom line, keep an eye out for Mr. Hawk. You never know where he’ll pop up…

Are you a fan of the Olympics? The long wait is almost over, because the Olympic games are coming back in 2020! The games, which will be held in Japan, are made even more special by a new sustainability initiative, thanks to which every single medal at the Tokyo Olympics will be made from recycled metal.
The plan has been in place since 2017, when organizers in Japan began collecting electronic waste for the project. People donated old smartphones, laptops, and other items. Businesses and industry organizations also contributed.
Now, Olympic organizers say they expect to reach their targets in March. As of November, they’d collected 47,488 tons of discarded electronic devices.
“It is estimated that the remaining amounts of metal required to manufacture all Olympic and Paralympic medals can be extracted from the devices already donated,” the organizers said in a statement.
In total, they’ll collect 30.3 kilograms of gold, 4100 kilograms of silver, and 2700 kilograms of bronze.
It’s a major move towards sustainability for the Olympics. In 2016, only 30% of the silver and bronze in medals came from recycled materials.
Later this year, Tokyo 2020 will release the official designs for the medals.

When the 1980 US hockey team was playing the USSR in a pre-Olympics exhibition, it was revealed during the game that a Soviet player had a gun under his jersey. The “player” was a KGB agent used to prevent players from defecting to the West.
Italian cyclist Alfredo Binda was so overwhelmingly dominating his sport, that he was payed by the organizers of the Giro d’Italia not to race. The sum he received was equivalent to that awarded to the winner.
During the 1936 Berlin Olympics, two Japanese pole vaulters who tied for second place refused to participate in a tie-breaker. Upon returning to Japan, they cut their medals in half and fused them to one another so each athlete ended up with a half-silver, half-bronze medal.
Pittsburgh is the only city where all the major sports teams (Steelers, Pirates, Penguins) all share the same colors, as black and gold represent the ingredients to make steel (coal and iron ore). 00
A high school basketball coach was fired after his team won 100-0 because the Catholic school he worked for thought that winning by such a wide margin did not show a “Christlike and honourable approach to competition”. 00
The Miwok (North California) played a game similar to soccer. Played by both sexes, girls were allowed to do anything, including kicking the ball & picking it up & running with it, while boys were only allowed to use their feet, but if a girl was holding the ball he could pick her up and […]
