    That's your man, Ansel Elgort. He made you cry when you watched The Fault in Our Stars. You were a mess. He got so heated at Willem Dafoe. He was like, "Pain demands to be felt," and you were like ... Over the weekend, Elgort w...

    Chris Ryan

    A quick look at last night's NBA action. This game kind of sucked to watch. At one point Jordan Crawford and Lance Stephenson got into it and I thought the world was going to end. This was one of those contests where you feel like -- despite ...
