That Pretty Sweet Derek Jeter Gatorade Commercial That Everyone is Talking About.
Late night stays white because it’s taken everything it needs from black pioneers like Arsenio Hall. Comedian W. Kamau Bell weighs in on why that matters.
Why I Think This World Should End — If you haven’t seen this video yet, well worth the watching.
We’ve all been there. The train is coming into the station, and you grab your MetroCard and quickly try and swipe it at a turnstile.
"Please Swipe Again". "Please Swipe Again". "Insufficient Fare".
The last two words are killer. You think to yourself “I swear I had a balance on this card”….

So this is my book. A football book for the start of football season. It came out about eight years ago. The Greatest Game Ever Played.
It’s a cool story. Yeah, I’m biased, but it is. It’s dedicated to my best friend, Gersh and his dad, and my friend Turch and his. Although I haven’t seen Turch in years, and that needs to change. He’s getting married. Congrats, man.
Anyway, The Greatest Game Ever Played.
It’s a father-son story against the backdrop of the 1958 NFL championship game between the Colts and Giants played at Yankee Stadium, which is known as the Greatest Game Ever Played. Zachary Pullen did the dope illustrations. This cover painting is the game-winning touchdown. It’s based on an iconic photograph.
So about a month after the book came out, I got a letter at my website. This is my website:
Anyway, I got this email at my website. I printed it out awhile ago and just found it amongst the boxes. I’m moving in a couple weeks, and I keep coming across stuff that’s taking me back. Way back.
Okay, so here’s the letter:
I just had to say thank you! My father is Alan Ameche. It was quite a thrill to spot the cover illustration of him scoring the touchdown at Barnes and Noble today. Wow! I thought I was seeing things. It took my breath away to see his picture. I just finished reading it to my 4 children, who unfortunately never met their Grandfather. We will treasure this book. Beautifully written and illustrated. It really conveyed the importance of the day and New Yorkers’ love for their teams.
My father passed away in 1988, while I was on my honeymoon, so my children never met him. What a special way for them to experience the thrill of that day. I bought all the copies they had, one for each child. I will be sure to get more for my family and I know my Mother will love it. All of my family will be very pleased. I’ll be sure she lets other Baltimore Colts families know about it.
Beth Ameche D’Arcy”
One of my favorite letters ever. Words are awesome.
