Last night, ahead of Super Bowl 50, the NFL presented its yearly awards that shine light on the best coaches and players of the season. The CAROLINA PANTHERS walked away with top honors. The awards were presented at the NFL HONORS awards show. The winners list shapes up as follows:

-Cam Newton wins NFL MVP-

  • MVP – Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
  • Offensive Player of the Year – Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
  • Defensive Player of the Year – J.J. Watt, Texans
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year – Todd Gurley, Rams
  • Defensive Rookie of the Year – Marcus Peters, Chiefs
  • Comeback Player of the Year – Eric Berry, Chiefs
  • Coach of the Year – Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers
  • Assistant Coach of the Year – Wade Phillips, Broncos defensive coordinator

I may be biased because the Carolina Panthers are one of my favorite NFL teams, but I hope these top awards translate into a victory today at Super Bowl 50 as they face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The game begins at 6:30 EST.  Lady Gaga will be singing the National Anthem and the halftime show will feature Coldplay, Beyonce’, and Bruno Mars.




I don’t know what this fight is all about. I don’t care what this fight is al about. I just know that this video keeps appearing in my IN box… and I’m posting it. Apparently this is a family fight between Jay-Z and his wife’s sister, Solange.
Since someone wanted me to post this so badly, perhaps they know and can share with everyone. I just hope everyone is okay.

Left to right: Chloe (14) and Halle (12).
At the tender ages of 12 and 14 these young sisters are setting out to prove that they are a lot more than pretty faces. They’ve begun to be acknowledged nationally for their covers of hit songs like “Skyfall” and “We Found Love.” The duo has more than singing talents. Hale (12) plays the guitar, while Chloe (14) plays the piano. The duo has been on shows like “Ellen and the Disney Channel.
Beyoncé is raving about their cover of her new song “Pretty Hurts”. She posted a clip of them on her Facebook page and commented “so amazingly talented!”. I concur with Beyonce’, they are indeed talented. Check them out below with their cover of “Pretty Hurts”.
