The First Female NFL Referee Gives Us Advice

On Sunday night, Super Bowl LI was watched by millions of people across the country. Even if you're not a football fan, you don't need to know anything about the NFL to know that all the referees out on the field were men. In fact, until 2015, there were only male referees in the NFL. Not a single woman had ever broken into the field — that is, until Sarah Thomas changed the game. She was the first woman to ever referee in the NFL, and she's trailblazing the way for countless other women to foll…

Bernie Sanders Super Bowl Jokes Are Aplenty

In some ways, Super Bowl LI was a mirror image of the 2016 election: After trailing for most of the game, the team widely perceived as the pro-Trump team came from behind and scored a stunning upset victory. This led to a slew of Super Bowl jokes about Bernie Sanders, with folks extending the political metaphors to account for the Vermont Senator's presidential run.

Unfortunately, it seemed to be so well put together that not a lot of people noticed it happened, and it wasn't all that exciting. In a way, I guess that's a sign that t…

Bill Nye The Science Guy Seems Single Right Now

I love a good Super Bowl commercial, and even more so, I love a good Super Bowl commercial that highlights something or someone I once loved as a child. One such person is Bill Nye the Science Guy, who I would dutifully watch after school everyday. Together, we learned about plate tectonics and ionic bonds, and in seeing Bill Nye’s new Super Bowl ad for Persil, I wondered — who is Bill Nye dating? Hey, it's been a long time since I've seen him. Just wanna know what he's up to. According to Today…
