Roundup: ‘A Star is Born’ Robbed at the Oscars; Dumb College Basketball Suspension; & NFL Combine Week is Here



Lady Gaga, because ‘A Star is Born’ got robbed at the Oscars … R. Kelly didn’t have the $100,000 needed to post bond; he also owes about $162,000 in child support … feels like an important read, wonder if people running news and sports will read it: “In Race to Beat Netflix, Studios Give Up Billions In Profits” … haven’t had all these french fries but totally agree that McDonald’s probably has the best and In-N-Out is near the bottom (but totally disagree with Chil-Fil-A’s ranking) … “There are more than 20 towns in America called Moscow. Why is that?” … there’s a Tesla Model 3 easter egg fart … “Naked man arrested at Planet Fitness thought it was ‘judgment-free zone‘” …
