The MLB wants to fight PEDs, Pictures of Presidents, and OK Go Charms In Their Tiny Desk Concert.
All Braun And No Brains
According to a report by ESPN’s Outside The Lines, Major League Baseball is looking to suspend at least 20 players for their alleged involvement with Biogenesis, a Florida based company that supposedly gave them performance-enhancing drugs. This list includes big names like Ryan Bruan, Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera, and Gio Gonzales. Due to the fact that many of these players are repeat offenders, MLB will institute a 100 game suspension as opposed to the standard 50 associated with the use of PEDs. However, these allegations come from a deal struck between Major League Baseball and Tony Bosch, the head of Biogenesis and current con-man, to crack down to players. Because of MLB’s strange bedfellow, questions like whether or not these allegations are worth considering or if any of these players will actually be suspended due to appeals and other considerations are still up in the air. As of press time, thousands of fantasy baseball players are willing to suspend their aversion to steroids so Ryan Braun can take their team to the very top.
Candid Photos Of 13 Presidents
Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski compiled a bunch of photographs featuring the past 13 Presidents and found that a lot of Presidents really like to spend time on boats. If a President isn’t fishing or on a boat, he’s dressing up as Santa (Reagan), hanging out with animals (Johnson), jamming on the piano (Nixon) or running with a squirt gun (Obama). Unfortunately added to a list is a very unflattering picture of an especially pasty and sweaty Bill Clinton, who also dons impossibly short running shorts—a reminder that the 90s weren’t that great.
OK Go’s 223 Take Tiny Desk Concert
OK Go is known for their complex and creative music videos that are noteworthy because of how tedious and exhausting they probably were to film. This time, they were brought in to help NPR All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen move all his stuff from where the Tiny Desk Concerts are filmed to the new NPR offices downtown Washington D.C. Instead of helping out with the actual move, the band decided to do a 223 take music video of their song “All Is Not Lost” going from the old office to the new one via a stake bed truck and a couple of elevators. Be sure to watch the entire video for the endearing outtakes.
