People Magazine Names Soccer Star David Beckham The Sexiest Man Alive

(PCM) People Magazine is celebrating the 30 year anniversary of their ever-popular Sexiest Man Alive issue and this year they have chosen soccer star David Beckham for the honor. Do you agree?

Beckham claims he is completely flattered with the honor and says that he truly doesn’t think of himself as being that hot saying “I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person”. The father of four also goes on to reveal that his wife Victoria Beckham approves of the honor and jokingly says “I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway! ”

Teen Runner Disqualified For Showing Good Sportsmanship


(PCM) A high school runner by the name of Zach Hougland came in first place during a cross country race in Des Moines, Iowa, but was later disqualified from the competition all because he showed some good sportsmanship and went back to assist a fellow runner who was struggling.

Competitor Garrett Hinson was suffering from severe dehydration during the race, so when Houghland noticed that no one else was coming to Hinson’s aid, he turned back and helped Hinson cross the finish line.

Definitely a heartwarming gesture, however it backfired when Hougland was notified that he had lost his first place medal. The rules of the Iowa High School Athletic Association a competitor is immediately disqualified for giving or receiving help, so therefore both Hougland and Hinson were both disqualified from the race.

A representative for the Iowa High School Athletic Association claims that his hands are tied due to the rules, however he does commend Hougland for his good sportsmanship. Hougland’s team did score high enough in the competition to allow him to compete at the state meet later this month and Houghland says despite losing his medal he would not do anything differently and would still come to the aid of a person in need.

Sorority Sisters Called Out For Snapping Selfies During Arizona Diamondbacks Game


(PCM) We are sure that many of us do not realize quite how ridiculous we look when we are attempting to strike a pose in order to capture the perfect selfie. A group of sorority sister who were attending a recent Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game learned the hard way that you never know just who could be watching.

The girls were called out and ridiculed by the baseball game announcers once they took notice to the sheer amount of selfies the girls were snapping. A video was then posted on the Arizona Diamondbacks Facebook page and it quickly went viral.

Many found the clip to be harmless and funny, while others felt that the girls suffered unnecessary ridicule. We found it to be a true testament as to just how addicted the younger generation is to their phones and further cements the fact that sometimes we all need to just unplug and go out and enjoy life and actual human interaction every once in awhile (and the commentary for the announcers is pretty spot-on)

Due to the media frenzy over the baseball selfies the Arizona Diamondbacks and FOX Sports offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game, however they politely declined the offer and instead requested that the tickets be donated to a charity organization named A New Leaf which focuses on assisting families who are the victims of domestic violence.

Philadelphia Featured Prominently in the New Creed Trailer

Creed_Feature(PCM) The newest trailer for Creed, the latest installment in the Rocky film series, pays homage to Rocky’s hometown and setting, the historical city of Brotherly Love.

The sixth installment in the series (and the only one not written by Sylvester Stallone) stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, teaming back up with Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler.

The latest trailer for Creed, clocking in at 2 minutes and 30 seconds, focuses on Adonis’s struggles with his ego and relationships and features a few prominent shots of Philadelphia, the main setting for the majority of the Rocky films, including a shot of Rocky and Adonis in front of the Ben Franklin Parkway and a shot of the city’s skyline at night.

Watch the new trailer below the official synopsis!

From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema comes award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s Creed. The film explores a new chapter in the Rocky story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

Creed also stars Tessa Thompson (Selma, Dear White People) as Bianca, a local singer-songwriter who becomes involved with Adonis; Phylicia Rashad (Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias) as Mary Anne Creed, Apollo’s widow; and English pro boxer and former three-time ABA Heavyweight Champion Anthony Bellew as boxing champ Pretty Ricky Conlan.

Coogler directs from a screenplay he wrote with Aaron Covington, based on characters from the Rocky series written by Sylvester Stallone. The film is being produced by Robert Chartoff, Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Kevin King Templeton and Sylvester Stallone, with Nicholas Stern executive producing.

Creed opens in theaters nationwide on November 25, 2015.

Could Bruno Mars Be Returning To The Super Bowl Half-Time Show?


(PCM) Several sources are claiming that Bruno Mars could be returning to the Super Bowl Half-Time Show just two years after he appeared alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was revealed that Mars has been invited by the NFL to make a return for Super Bowl 50 which will take place in Santa Clara, California on February 7, 2016.

At only 28-years old Mars brought in the largest viewing audience for the Super Bowl Half-Time Show at the time and his amazing performance was also the most-viewed event in the history of U.S. television. Last year’s Half-Time Show performer Katy Perry did manage to beat Mars in terms of overall viewership as she brought in 121 million viewers versus his 115 million.

Much the disappoint of many, Mars may not actually be performing at the Big Game, as he was asked by the NFL to curate the Half-Time Show, but needless to say we are sure he will be gracing the stage at some point if he agrees to return and of course bring along some amazing guests to perform as well!

Comic Con Interview: Mike Tyson Talks “Mike Tyson Mysteries” And Reveals His Personal Kryptonite


(PCM) We were absolutely thrilled to catch up with the legendary Mike Tyson during our time at San Diego Comic Con 2015.  In our interview Tyson discusses his Adult Swim series “Mike Tyson Mysteries”, why he loves being an entertainer, and of course his thoughts on the current state of the sport of boxing.

On the first season of “Mike Tyson Mysteries”

Mike Tyson: Great. It doesn’t really matter what I anticipate or think about, the only thing that really matters is the results and I guess that’s why we’re here again ’cause we had pretty good results.

On what it is about his style of comedy that is a huge hit with audiences 

Mike Tyson: I don’t know…it’s just what I’m born to do, I’m born to entertain people, either fighting or what I’m doing now, it could be either of those, I could do it for thirty-thousand people or three people, it’s just what I know how to do. I know how to entertain people.

On how boxing taught him about showmanship

Mike Tyson: This is what I learned as a kid, my soul objective only is for me to have the audience say ‘when’s the next time I can see him?’ That’s what I do.

His initial thoughts on doing the series when Warner Bros first approached him about it

Mike Tyson: I said ‘No.’ I didn’t want to do it. Hugh [Davidson] said no too, it was never going to work. I guess that’s why they are the suits at Warner Bros. and we are the walking stiffs [laughs]. They know what’s going to work and we don’t. I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t want to do any of this [at first]. When I saw the first draft, I thought it was up to date, very sophisticated, I wanted to try to do this and make it look good and they made me look good.

On some of his favorite cartoons 

Mike Tyson: Cartoons of the 70’s. Deputy Dog, Looney Tunes, Heckle and Jeckle, Superman, Super Friends all that stuff, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby-Doo, all the Hannah-Barbera stuff pretty much.

On what it has been like to watch the fan base for “Mike Tyson Mysteries” continue to grow

Mike Tyson: I don’t know, I don’t question my life [laughs]. I say ‘Well this is working.’ This is great, I never thought I’d be in this particular thing in general but this is working and if it’s working, let’s just hang out here for awhile.

On live acting versus voice acting

Mike Tyson: I like live performances. I like being loud in a front of a crowd of people.

On raising his famous pigeons 

Mike Tyson: When you are a pigeon fancier, you do it til you die. When I die, someone’s going to come and be like ‘I’m here to pick up Mike’s birds,’ that’s just how all the pigeon fanciers are.

On the biggest challenge involved with voice-over work

Mike Tyson: I want everything to be challenging. I want to be up against a situation that if I fail, I want the chance of being humiliated. Only by that kind of adversity, that I will rise above my level to my performance. It can’t be just a walk in the park, I’m going to suck at that, it has to be something really threatening.


On becoming more comfortable with himself 

Mike Tyson: I don’t know if anybody is really comfortable with themselves, if they are ever totally real with themselves you know? ‘Cause that’s our job in life, is to overcome what we hate about ourselves and what we despise about ourself. That’s our journey is to overcome.

On what his superpower of choice would be

Mike Tyson: To read people’s minds. Then I’ll know how to move [smiles]. You’d hear ‘I hate that motherf***er’ [laughs], ‘How can I get some money out of this guy?’

On his dream project 

Mike Tyson: I think I would want to direct and produce, be behind the camera. I did a documentary called ‘Champs,’ about the lifestyles of three very successful [boxing] champions that come up from crime and drug infested areas, the bottom of the line in America as far as intercity is concerned. My personal opinion, when I saw the film, I saw three people who had great potential and the shame of where they were and the desire to get out of the rut they think they’re in, made them extremely successful, all three of us.

On which is scarier a heavyweight fight or being here at Comic-Con with one hundred thousand freaks and geeks

Mike Tyson: Neither. I try not to be selfish, I f*** up when i’m in my selfish mode, it never fails. When i’m always thinking about how i’m going to get stimulated from a situation regardless…whatever it takes to get there, i’m going down. My kryptonite is selfishness.

On the sport of boxing now compared to when he was in the ring

Mike Tyson: It’s about giving the people what they want when I was fighting. Regardless of who you are whether it’s the queen of England, the president, the secretary of state, they may have a really dignified position in life but when you come to a fight, I know you want to see a man comatose, you want to see him hurt. I don’t care what kind of title you got or how dignified you’ve become, you want to see them get knocked senseless, you don’t want them to move and that’s what I tried to give them.

On his suggestions for future episodes of “Mike Tyson Mysteries”

Mike Tyson: I was suggesting that he and the pigeon constantly conflict with one another, I was thinking that Yung [Hee Tyson] should adopt a cat and the pigeon would be trying to get the cat and that he should dump on the cat sometimes.

On his favorite episode or story line thus far

Mike Tyson: When I was a reluctant serial killer for astronauts.

New episodes of “Mike Tyson Mysteries” will air this fall on Adult Swim!
