That said, to be clear, I am not a fan of the NFL. I think the sport, like most professional sports, is overrun with whiny, juiced-up morons paid millions of dollars for providing nothing to the public except sub-par entertainment and little-to-no loyalty to the state or city in which they happen to be employed. NFL players are not legitimate role models for society anymore that costumed television wrestlers are role models for society. The best thing that could possibly happen to U. To me, it seems the appeal of sports, at least for spectators, is the possibility that anything could happen according to the merit of the players and the teams. Spontaneous moments of greatness are what people want to see, not blithe displays of ideological ignorance. There is no affirmative action. There are no safe spaces.

Hollywood Democrats Fear Loss of Senate Majority
Such guilt-by-association tactics are typical for Republican campaigns aiming to take advantage of Hollywood support for Democratic opponents. But this year it also underscores showbiz interest in a race that is one of the few opportunities for a Democratic gain in the Senate in a landscape where the party is otherwise playing defense. Fundraisers are trying to instill a sense of urgency among donors on the very real prospect of Democrats losing the Senate majority, and to contribute even if that means setting aside significant policy differences.

YMMV Hollywood Law refers to a fictitious legal situation which in no way resembles the actual legal system in the place portrayed, but rather is played up for dramatic purposes. Since the ins and outs of the legal system in Real Life are far less dramatic and tense than anything the average viewer would want to sit still for, it’s considered one of the many Acceptable Breaks from Reality for Hollywood to prioritize drama over factual accuracy about the legal system, especially when it comes to shows not directly related to law enforcement.
Even in works that focus on the legal system, Hollywood will over-dramatize it to the point of trotting out things that would be disallowed in real life, or misuse a valid aspect of the law without regard to any actual procedural constraints that would prevent it being misused so blatantly. At the extreme, many a Broken Aesop occurs when Hollywood Law is used to debate the effectiveness of the legal system itself.
For instance, depicting violent criminals getting Off on a Technicality via some oversimplified nuance such as forgetting to dot the ‘i’ on the arrest warrant to suggest that we should just use a simpler and common sense-based legal system that looks more lightly on police or prosecutorial misconduct or trust in the Vigilante Man to clean up after the government’s failings.
Unfortunately, the media exerts a pervasive influence in people’s perceptions by being the average viewer’s most easily-accessible window into the justice system; after all, most people’s only direct contact with the real legal system are traffic offenses and divorce. Some of the most common misrepresentations widely used in dramatic fiction can fuel misconceptions in the audience if they believe these depictions accurately reflect the justice system in real life, and can influence how they vote in elections or result in The CSI Effect when they sit on a jury, with disastrous results.
If both sides agree to an unusual arrangement surprise witnesses, last-minute evidence, even calling the prosecution as a witness , it’s not unrealistic for a judge to allow it.

Ooh, I’d rather have Keith and Sharp, but I’ll take it. I’m off to find the shirtless, pantless Sharp vid. Just google the two Tylers. Giroux and Briere used to live together with Briers three young sons while Briere went through his ‘nasty’ divorce. Giroux moved out and went on to grabbing cops’ asses and getting arrested for it. I used to LOVE reading fanfic about those two when the affair was on and popping. Im sure Sid the kid is a closet case but this is a guess unlike my certainty about the previous two.
Keith got married first and his wife made sure NOT to invite Seabrook to the wedding. Literally he was the only one not invited. See how they follow each other to different teams, and lived together for extensive periods of time. Wives are just beards, and there is a clause in BOTH of their contracts with the Kings that you cant move them unless they are shopped as a pair. Long post I know. Im a hockey insider and season ticket holder.
I know my players and their gay gossip.
