Come for the Greeks, stay for the fake Serbian cameo.


Then after the jump, check out our most recent Cliff Robinson on “Survivor” update. Enjoy it!


Whoops Alert: 76ers botch free Big Macs promotion in hilarious fashion

Easy joke: Ugh, the 76ers can’t even lose right.


Better joke: Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions and the 76ers haven’t won.


Best joke: On the plus side, at least Michael Carter-Williams gets to stay skinny.


(Note: None of these jokes are very good. Video via Eye On Basketball.)

Video: DeAndre and Blake lift Barnes off the floor, then do it again for fun

, on March 13, 2014 , 9:30AM


Sometimes, when I go to sleep, I’ll pop an eye open to check my phone before calculating exactly how many hours of rest I’ll be getting that night. When that happens, it’s imperative that I do the same with my other eye, just to ensure they’re both on the same timeframe with regards to being closed. I know it’s weird, but it helps me sleep, so back off.


Plus, it helps me understand why Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan would need to pick Matt Barnes up off the floor twice in rapid succession — they don’t want his arms to feel unequally pulled. If a simple eyelid is enough to keep a grown man awake, think about the adverse effects that different arm pulls would have on a professional athlete. It would be horrible, so I’m guessing these two had that in mind when they decided to go out of their way for a teammate.


Either that or they thought it’d be funny. One of the two.
