Since sophomore year of high school, people have been telling me that I look like Jack Black. In fact, it was the first thing Mojo said to me. Here is a video of Spike, Intern Angelica, and I hitting up a screening of Kung Fu Panda 3 to give a speech and sign autographs for the kids…as JB.
Over the holidays, Mojo in the Morning flew more than 60 ill children from local area hospitals to the ‘North Pole.’
It was an amazing experience to be a part of. There aren’t many feelings like that of witnessing someone experience the best day of their life. I am thankful I got to tag along and make this video for the event.
We are years away from another World Cup, but tonight, soccer has America’s attention. Millions will tune in to watch USWNT take on China in what will be captain Abby Wambach’s final game before retirement. At age 35, and after 250 international caps, the superstar will take the field one last time, in front of a home crowd, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
After a heartbreaking loss, in penalty kicks, to Japan in the 2011 World Cup final, Wambach got her redemption this year when the U.S. Women’s National Team defeated Japan to win it all. It was the storybook ending to her already illustrious career.
From Mia Hamm to President Obama, it seems as though everybody is heading to Twitter to express their admiration of the athlete, whom many consider to be the greatest of all time (GOAT):
Congrats on a great career, Abby Wambach. For the goals you’ve scored & the kids you’ve inspired, you’re the GOAT! pic.twitter.com/Kud56ChsBO
Gatorade and Nike both released EMOTIONAL videos (Warning: have tissues handy) to honor Abby’s career and accomplishments.
You can watch Wambach put on her red, white, and blues for the final time tonight at 8:00pm ET on Fox Sports One or stream online using FoxSportsGo. (with proper subscription). Thank you for all you have done for the sport, and congratulations on everything that you have accomplished, Abby! I believe that we will win.
I hate to say it, but it’s very easy to forget a friend’s birthday. I’m not as active on Facebook as I once was, some friends aren’t even on social media any more, and at times it’s hard to keep track of my own birthday. On top of that, what constitutes as wishing someone a happy birthday? Does a Facebook post count? I’ve had friends get mad at me over not wishing them a happy birthday, in a proper way. So, I took the Larry David approach to the situation, and made a sketch on the subject. Here is our new sketch “Happy Birthday, Man.”
Hey, friends. Lately, I’ve been expanding my #brand and contributing witty essays to the homies at BroBible.com. So, while most of my longer pieces will be submitted to them for publishing, I’m going to try to stay active on here with short stories and personal musings, as well. Here are the links to the essays I’ve written for BroBible:
1. To celebrate the release of Horrible Bosses 2, I share an anecdote of my own. Life may not be a movie, but Horrible Bosses are all too real. http://www.brobible.com/life/article/manager-makes-bosses-horrible-bosses-2/
2. The best football played at the Big House this year was a Soccer Match. Ouch. http://www.brobible.com/sports/article/best-football-played-big-house-soccer-match/
3. Technology is hard to keep up with, and it could turn around and bite you. http://www.brobible.com/life/article/technology-social-media-evolving/
I’ll make sure to post links to the BB links on here as they’re put up. Or, you could keep an eye on my BB Contributor page: http://www.brobible.com/author/cort-freeman/
