Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. defended his multiple domestic violence charges by comparing himself to OJ Simpson. Or as OJ calls Mayweather, “A quitter.”

Apple unveiled the Apple Watch. It can text, monitor your health and act as a secure payment system. And guys, it even has an app that can explain in detail why wearing the Apple Watch will keep you from getting laid.

An uproar exists over a Philadelphia restaurant's posting of a 20 cent tip on a $61 bill from millionaire Eagle running back, LeSean McCoy. In his defense, McCoy replied he did not knock anyone unconscious. 

Taco Bell is offering free food to 11 customers for life and the Olive Garden sells $100 all-you-can-eat Pasta Passes. There has never, ever, been a better time to be a toilet paper maker.

On Derek Jeter day at Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter was honored by being the only player to take the field. They got the idea from Alex Rodriguez’s birthday party when A-Rod was the only one there. 

Since you asked: 

There are only two conclusions that can be drawn from the NFL claiming to have seen the Ray Rice elevator video along with everyone else on TMZ. The first is the NFL is lying, the second is the NFL is inept.
Neither one is good. But the prior is more likely. 
If you have ever been inside an NFL locker room, you instantly see how far and wide the long arm of the NFL extends. You cannot throw a wad of used tape without hitting a poster specifically showing the proper way to wear the uniform. Codes of conduct and lists of acceptable medications are everywhere. In the NFL, big brother isn't just watching, he is giving you a colonoscopy. 
Any act or behavior that appears thuggish or unprofessional is immediately banned. Do-rags? Gone. Hanging gloves from the facemask? Illegal. Slouching on the sidelines? Against the law. Dunking the goal post? Huge fine. Planned touchdown celebrations? No. A display of having fun in any way? What are you, a ponytailed soccer fan?
So for the NFL to know a surveillance video in the elevator existed  - after they had seen the tape of Rice dragging his unconscious fiancé  - and not look at said elevator tape? That is not even vaguely plausible. 
Somebody, somewhere has evidence the NFL top brass saw the Ray Rice elevator knock-out clip prior to TMZ getting it, and that information is going to get leaked as sure as you can say Edward Snowden.
Like they tell you in kindergarten, no matter how bad the situation, you can always make it worse by lying.
Folks, this could become a brutal time for the NFL. Recreational drug problems, the CTE crisis, PED’s and felons, Jerry Jones along with rules that effectively put skirts on the wide receivers and tutus on the quarterbacks.
The greatest position in all of sports, running back, is becoming as obsolete as the Tour De France and white men with 'fros. Fullback is obsolete. Fantasy Football could not suck more if it had a surgically implanted straw in its lips. After the top six running backs, the quality of running backs falls in a well.
If you don’t have a twinkle-toes star quarterback, a monster tight end and a wide receiver who can outrun the wind, you’re dead. And or an insanely talented and freakishly physically gifted defender, like Seahawks corner, the preposterously ego-maniacal Richard Sherman. (Seahawks have both and I don't see anyone beating them except the Niners)

I’ve said it before, I will say it again, the West Coast Offense is as boring as it sucks. Jerry Jones-like sucks. 

Did I mention Jerry Jones sucks?
