PISCATAWAY, NJ – OCTOBER 24: Braxton Miller #1 of the Ohio State Buckeyes during warmups before a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at High Point Solutions Stadium on October 24, 2015 in Piscataway, New Jersey. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) Twitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]
Jersey Shore may be about to kick off its final season, but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino already has his next gig lined up: animal advocate.The Situation PETA AdThat’s why Sorrentino, who recently spent time in the Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) house, teamed up with PETA US for a brand-new campaign that calls attention to the homeless animal situation. In the ad, the CBB finalist shows off his celebrated six-pack amid a rowdy crowd of felines and next to the words, “Too Much Pussy Can Be a Bad Thing” The ad concludes, “Spay or neuter today.”“It definitely was overcrowded, and I learned that there’s been a problem, and it’s a growing problem,” Sorrentino said of the homeless animal overpopulation crisis following a recent visit to an animal shelter. “Fix your animals.” Sorrentino also cautions everyone that adopting a dog or cat is a lifelong commitment and urges anyone who witnesses animal abuse to call the authorities immediately.Each year, thousands of cats and dogs in animal shelters must be killed because there aren’t enough good homes for them. Other animals are abandoned on the streets, where they starve to death, get injured or killed by vehicles or fall prey to abuse. Adopting – not buying – is the answer. Also, the best way to minimize the number of homeless cats and dogs is by always having companion animals spayed or neutered.Sorrentino joins a long list of celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Kellan Lutz and Simon Cowell, and reality TV stars, such as Lauren Goodger and Chantelle Houghton, who have teamed up with PETA and its affiliates to help fight animal abuse.For more information, visit PETA.org.uk.

Advertisement Advertisement Who’s that girl?For Andrea Bolley, it’s the question that indubitably swoops up and down the local party scene, particularly among novices.Seeing her dart through it — dressed in the long frock coats she favours, and a countenance that throbs with the guise of a latter-day Lauren Bacall — it’s clear, however, that she doesn’t exactly fit the dictionary definition of “girl.” Nor does it square when she casually drops mentions of long-gone hot spots, like Bemelmans and Prego. But, where the usual suspect can — and does — outplay all and any millennial comers? On the dance floor of life. Andrea Bolley poses with Drake at an exclusive pre-opening event held at the rap superstar’s new Toronto restaurant, Pick 6ix (Johnny Nunez/Getty Images for Remy Martin) Rug-cutting like no one else, she is the “secret sauce,” some might say, to shindigs, galas and launches in this town — a foil to the dreary, frozen-smiled socialites one routinely sees around, as well as the hashtag-mad, too-trite newer kids. Something that even Drake, yes, Drake! — Toronto’s unofficial mayor — noticed when he saw her dancing at a party, and since has made her part of his “squad,” one might say. It’s not every day that you see a white woman of a certain age pop into his social media stream, as was the case when he included her in an Instagram Story he posted a few months ago.“Who are you?” Bolley, somewhat shy off the dance floor, recalls Drake asking when she crossed paths with him at the opening of his restaurant Fring’s on King St. W. in 2015. She was making her moves, feeling the music, when he started taking a photo of her and then told her to come join him in his booth. “He was, like, c’mon up,” she continues, summing up the moment. “I said no. He said, ‘You have to!’ He took my purse and jacket. Asked me what I’m drinking. I said vodka and tonic. He said, ‘Same as me!’ Jada Pinkett Smith was there too.” Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter
