Jimmy Fallon shares hilariously disgusting Thanksgiving fails

  Jimmy Fallon shares hilariously disgusting Thanksgiving fails Ah, Thanksgiving, a time for family bonding and absurd screw-ups in the kitchen! On Wednesday’s installment of The Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon shared some of the responses to the show’s #ThanksgivingFails hashtag, which ranged from chuckle-worthy, to hilariously disgusting, to just downright gross. The tales included: a malfunctioning chocolate fondue fountain (“That’s a fon-don’t!”); a family learning what happens when you try to bake a pie sans a pie pan; a grandfather’s dentures falling into the mashed potatoes (ew!); and another family getting food poisoning from suspiciously leaky turkey. “One year the turkey still had pink juice coming from it after cooking, but my dad said it was just ‘leg juice,'” read one particularly nauseating tweet. “Everybody but me ended up with food poisoning.” The main takeaway from that story is that you should always use a meat thermometer and never eat anything with “pink juice”! The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.

Floyd Mayweather suing ex-girlfriend, claims she stole money

  Floyd Mayweather suing ex-girlfriend, claims she stole money Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been engaged in a legal war with his ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson for years, and the latest shot is being fired by the undefeated boxer. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Mayweather has filed a lawsuit against Jackson alleging that the actress stole an undisclosed amount of money from him while the two were dating. Mayweather claims Jackson took cash from around his house without permission and gained access to his credit card accounts to go on shopping sprees. The lawsuit claims Jackson even had the items she bought shipped a secret location so Mayweather would not know about the purchases.

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam talks after their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017 about why Hue Jackson will be

NFL. Jimmy Haslam ' s Biggest Mistake Was Hiring Sashi Brown and Hue Jackson Together . Over the last seven years as coordinator in New England, we’ve seen all the things that made him the McVay of 2009 when Denver hired him for his short head-coaching stint.

Jimmy Haslam’s biggest mistake two years ago wasn’t making Sashi Brown captain of his personnel department. And it wasn’t hiring Hue Jackson to be his head coach.

We’re here today—with Brown out in Cleveland—because he hired them together.

The Browns are starting over again, for the fourth time in Haslam’s five years as owner, thanks to an inability to see the one thing that takes down more teams than anything else on a consistent basis. Cleveland’s football operation wasn’t aligned, the same reason it went sideways under the last two regimes, and this time, Haslam should’ve been able to see it coming all the way from Knoxville.

In Brown, the Browns brought aboard an analytically-driven, outside-the-box business-side-bred executive to put together the roster. In Jackson, they hired an old-school coach who’s spent 30 years teaching the game, and was wildly successful, over the four years previous to his arrival, working for one if the NFL’s most old-fashioned franchises, in Cincinnati.

Haslam hired Beane’ s former righthand man, Paul DePodesta, as Chief Strategy After the Browns lost for the 27th time in 28 games, he fired head personnel man Sashi Brown and hired an old Dorsey’ s first big decision will be whether to keep head coach Hue Jackson , a fellow football purist.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said after firing G.M. Sashi Brown this morning that he will not also fire head coach Hue Jackson . In a statement released by the team, Haslam said he is committed to Jackson for another season.

Philosophically, scouting and coaching were inevitably going to butt heads. And a team can best overcome that if it’s in a position to win quickly, because winning has a way of pulling people together to work out their differences. But Cleveland was in shambles when Brown was elevated and Jackson was hired—and needed a full-on football facelift.

Predictably, it didn’t take long for problems to surface.

Two months in, Brown and the personnel staff drew a hard negotiating line (again, those numbers) and lost free agents Alex Mack, Mitchell Schwartz, Travis Benjamin, and Tashaun Gipson, among others, as a result. A month after that, the Browns traded down in the draft, and in many cases out into future drafts in an effort to amass capital. And therein, festered the problem.

The NFL’s version of The Process was underway, and through it there was very little question that EVP of football operations Sashi Brown was doing a bang-up job of building an asset warchest that would make Sam Hinkie blush. And the haul now looks great on paper, and may look even better a few years down the line. But in the end, he couldn’t swiftly enough give his coaches what they really wanted.

Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport crippled by power outage

  Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport crippled by power outage A power outage at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world's busiest airport, is leaving thousands of passengers stranded and planes grounded. Georgia Power has confirmed they have crews in the field working to determine the cause of the problem. The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a ground stop for flights to Atlanta, meaning that planes are being held at their departure airports, according to a tweet on Hartsfield-Jackson's verified Twitter account. The airport also posted a statement on Twitter saying, "A power outage has impacted several areas in the airport.

He couldn’t give them enough players quickly enough.

Privately, the results were what you’d expect—competitive coaches were unhappy with the state of the roster and the limited chance they were being given to win on a week-to-week basis—and animosity building as a result.

Drafting Myles Garrett, something the coaches wanted from the start, gave the two sides of the building one moment of compromise in 2017, but it was fleeting. And everything only worsened in October, when Brown failed to land one of the two quarterbacks that Jackson wanted—Jimmy Garoppolo and A.J. McCarron.

There was a perceived lack of aggression in pursuing Garoppolo—Cleveland wanted Garoppolo in the spring but was told he was unavailable, then sat on the sideline as he went to the Niners on Oct. 30. It was, even moreso, the way that the trade for McCarron, whom Jackson worked with in Cincinnati, was botched, leaving the coaches fuming.

All the while, Brown carried out his plan to build through the draft, by building up a huge margin-for-error with creative moves like dealing for Brock Osweiler’s contract and getting a second-round pick as a result. But the team was losing, and a coaching staff, which was skeptical of the analytics experiment and impatient with a slow process that left the roster with gaping holes, eventually had enough.

Jimmy Fallon carries on Letterman tradition with Darlene Love's 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)'

  Jimmy Fallon carries on Letterman tradition with Darlene Love's 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' Jimmy Fallon squeezed in one more classroom instruments special before the end of the year, and this one was a double-whammy. Anna Kendrick joined Darlene Love and The Roots for a performance of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on The Tonight Show Monday. With Fallon on the wood block, Questlove on hand clappers, and Captain Kirk on Ukulele, the group gave a cheerful rendition of Love’s classic holiday song, which she performed annually for David Letterman on CBS’ The Late Show before his retirement in 2015. It also happens to be the five-year anniversary of another holiday-inspired classroom instruments performance. In 2012, Fallon and the gang tapped Mariah Carey (who also has a powerhouse version of “Christmas” in her back pocket) to perform a classroom instruments-version of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” This was right in Kendrick’s wheelhouse. As the star of Pitch Perfect 3, she often makes music with her a cappella sisters and a red solo cup. So, actually, it was a step up.

Sashi Brown , who has led the Browns ' personnel department the past two seasons, was fired Thursday. Coach Hue Jackson will remain in his " Hue Jackson will remain our coach and will return for the 2018 season," owner Jimmy Haslam said in a statement, "but we feel it is necessary to take

The Browns have more turnover coming, which is becoming an annual rite of passage for them. It should probably not be surprising to see owner Jimmy Haslam making changes again this year, with Cleveland However, the owner released a statement saying Hue Jackson will remain the coach.

That’s not to exonerate anyone, but it’s clear that the greatest miscalculation was made by the man who matched two diametrically opposed philosophies in the two most important positions on the football side of his franchise.

If there’s a glimmer of hope to be had here, John Dorsey’s name was the first to surface in the Browns’ looming GM search. And that has little to do with Dorsey’s credentials. It’s all about who he is.

As I understand it, Haslam has been working for over two weeks on a potential overhaul. At first, he was looking, with Brown, at the idea of adding a strong, old-school voice to help run the personnel side. Then, after some research, he made the decision to just pull the plug on Brown.

The fact that Dorsey’s name (and I’m told the Browns are looking at Dorsey hard now) is here is a tacit acknowledgement that Haslam sees what he should’ve two years ago—coaching and scouting have to be aligned. Dorsey is an old on-the-road scout, with a belief system that lines right up with Jackson’s. Short of the moonshot of landing Peyton Manning (he and Haslam are close), this one actually makes sense.

And it shouldn’t be lost either that this offseason will be about picking players, with the assets in place. Cleveland will likely have the first pick, and be in position to take a quarterback there, and that’s just part of a haul that includes five picks in the first two rounds, 12 in the first six rounds, and over $100 million in cap space.

Tennessee governor exonerates man of 1978 rape conviction

  Tennessee governor exonerates man of 1978 rape conviction Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam on Wednesday said he has exonerated a man whose convictions for rape and burglary were set aside by a court in 2009 and who was released after more than three decades in prison.The exoneration makes 61-year-old Lawrence McKinney eligible for compensation of up to $1 million. The only other repayment for his time behind bars was $75 he received when he left prison, his lawyer said.In a news release, Haslam said that he respects determinations by the court and prosecutor that 61-year-old Lawrence McKinney was not guilty of crimes he was convicted for in 1978 and wouldn't have been prosecuted if DNA testing results were available during his trial.

Hue Jackson chuckled when asked about speculation he would not be back as the Cleveland Browns coach in Jackson said he simply takes Jimmy Haslam ’ s word that he will return. “You got to trust in what Haslam arranged for Rob Chudzinski and Mike Lombardi to work together , and it lasted a year.

Jimmy Haslam is the WORST. The Browns think they're gonna get a GM worth his salt who has to come in with a coach already in place?? Jimmy Haslam has now hired and fired: Rob Chudzinski Mike Lombardi Joe Banner Mike Pettine Ray Farmer Sashi Brown ( and this isn't even counting

It couldn’t be more obvious, looking at all of that, that there are a lot of big decisions coming for the Browns over the next six months.

But the biggest ones come now. Because if Cleveland can’t avoid the missteps it took two years ago, the rest—as people there know well by now—probably won’t matter.
