The creative geniuses who write our favorite shows, games, and movies are generally not open to accepting ideas from us plebeians, probably because they churn out brilliant decades-long serials that we then turn into Snape diddling the Teletubbies. Sometimes, though, they stumble upon fan-created ideas too awesome to be ignored, to the point that they wind up included in the actual work.

Most actors spend their entire lives waiting for that one role that will make them famous — most never find it, and that’s why we don’t have to carry our food ourselves in restaurants. But then there are some performers who finally get their lucky break, that magical part that they’ll forever be linked to … and they hate it.

Thursday’s Throwdown: Sports Sins We’re Guilty Of, Dani Mathers, and Naming Superheroes

Published by under Thursday's Throwdown

sports sin

Click on the photo for sports sins we’re all guilty of

As sports fan there are certain things that we all do at one point or another, despite the fact that we often deride others for doing the same things. Whether or not you want to admit to it is, of course, a different story altogether. This happens all the time outside of sports. Your boss probably does it. Your parents definitely did it while you were growing up. It’s the old adage, “Do as I say, not as I do.”
