Coach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson

LOS ANGELES — Doc Rivers is pulling for Jordan Clarkson. The Clippers coach has known Clarkson — who on Monday was traded from the Cleveland Cavalier to the Utah Jazz for Dante Exum and a pair of second-round draft picks — since he was 3 years old. He’s even got a photo somewhere to prove it, Rivers said. Mike Clarkson, Jordan’s dad, was active in the local sporting scene in San Antonio, where Doc Rivers played from 1994-96. “Just living in San Antonio, his dad would come over the house. His dad...

Tigers Pummel Sooners to Advance to Championship Game

The Tigers pummel Sooners. LSU opened the Peach Bowl as a 13.5 point favorite. From the beginning, Joe Burrow carved the Sooners defense into pieces. Burrow tossed 7 TDs in the first half and a little over 400 yards. Out of those 7 TDs, Justin Jefferson caught an unprecedented four of them.

Daddy’s Hangout 2020 Citrus Bowl Predictions

We have the 2020 Citrus Bowl between two of the most prestigious football programs in the country. The Michigan Wolverines will battle the Alabama Crimson Tide. We have Jim Harbaugh taking on the legendary Nick Saban. The Michigan versus Alabama can sell itself, but having Harbaugh going up against Saban is box office stuff. The Wolverines late season run had many people thinking they had a shot at Ohio State. After barely falling to Penn State, Michigan had a great month stretch run. They ble...

The 10 most thrilling queer pop culture moments of the last 10 years

As we enter into the roaring ’20s, Queerty is looking back on the last 10 years of culture in our “Decade of Decadence” series.

'The Driver's Seat' (1974)

By 1973, Elizabeth Taylor's personal life and career were a mess. Hollywood had ushered in a new wave of young directors and actors, rendering the aging and puffy Taylor a has-been. What's more, her private life lived largely in headlines had become a throwback bore to a younger generation of moviegoers. Married to her fifth husband, Richard Burton, their union was fizzling fast by '73 and would end the following year. (They would remarry in '75 and divorce again in '76.) Most important, betwe...

Mumford -- Art and Technics (xi)

But in the period when handicraft dominated, the artist and the technician arrived, as it were, at a happy compromise... That extra effort, that extra display of love and esthetic skill, tends to act as a preservative of any structure; for, until the symbols themselves become meaningless, men tend to value, and if possible to save from decay and destruction, works...

Overload and isolation: the decade that warped popular culture

We forget ‘seminal’ albums and TV shows months after consuming them, and the mega-famous have to resort to ruses to get our attention – has streaming destroyed the mainstream? It’s that time in the decade when people like me – professional monitors of mass culture – look back at the preceding 10 years and try to make sense of it. Give it a shape. Problem is, I’m finding that it all feels a bit foggy and formless. The chronology of the 2010s is jumbled and indistinct, its peaks and landmarks hard...
