Have Blacks Abandoned Baseball?

Chris Rock did a guest spot on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, part of the show's 20th anniversary celebration.

His topic: why blacks have abandoned baseball.

He talks about growing up a baseball fan, when 20% of the players in Major League Baseball were black. Now, that number has dwindled, according to Chris, to about 8%.

But it's not about being black, it's about being a baseball fan.

Check out the promo, and if you like what you see, you can watch the whole episode here - it's uncensored, so be careful where you watch it or how loud the audio is...

Don't Push Iron Man!

Robert Downey Jr. was sitting down for a series of interviews about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Things are okay for the first four minutes, and then they start to go off the track when the reporter starts asking about RDJ's personal life.

You can tell he's very uncomfortable talking about his time in prison and struggling with addiction - "Are we promoting a movie?" RDJ asked.

The reporter refused to pick up on that cue and kept dwelling on the personal aspects.

Finally, RDJ got upset enough to walk out. And watch the reporter. He doesn't get why...

Making FLOTUS's Day

How's this for a nice way for Michelle Obama to start her day?

The First Lady was entertaining some children of White House Staffers as part of Bring Your Daughters & Sons to Work Day.

One young lady asked Mrs. O who old she was, and when she answered, "51," the girl made a face.

Turns out she thought Mrs. O was "too young" to be 51.

Guess who got a big hug?

How Do You Write "Uh Oh" in Arabic?

On Tuesday, Lindsay Lohan posted an inspirational message to Instagram.

On the bottom line, it read "You're beautiful." Above it were some Arabic characters, which everyone took to mean the same thing as the English phrase.

Not so much, according to experts. Lindsay had actually written, "You're an ass" in Arabic.

Yesterday, she posted this picture of a pocketbook, and referenced the now-deleted message, saying it was an inside joke with a friend.

"So, was already known what it was."

I'm not buying it. How about you?

Chris Pratt Crushed by a Noahsaurus

Chris Pratt visited the Ellen show this week and agreed to play a game of "Dino Right, Dino Wrong" against Ellen's little buddy, Noah Ritter.

It was a trivia game about dinosaurs, and given that Chris just wrapped up Jurassic World, you'd expect him to have the edge.

Think again.

This kid Noah is good. Check out the competition.

It's Dropping Trou Coming Around the Post...

Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.

Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.

This stuff you can't make up.

And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.

This time, his pants stayed fully on.

Chewing with Chewie

For some reason, people are taking the #TwizzlerChallenge to help raise autism awareness.

I don't see the correlation, but if it helps, who am I to question it.

You take a Twizzler in your mouth, and place the other end of the Twizzler in your partner's mouth, and chew on it like the two dogs chewing on a strand of spaghetti in Lady & the Tramp.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Autism Awareness Month at the beginning of April by taking the challenge with Rihanna.

And then he challenged Star Wars: A Force Awakens director JJ Abrams to take the challenge - with the biggest hairiest hero of them all, Chewbacca.

The other night, the pair stepped up. Check out the video - and who they passed the challenge to...

Sandra Bullock Named PEOPLE's 2015 Most Beautiful Woman

Congrats to actress Sandra Bullock! She has been named PEOPLE Magazines 'Most Beautiful Woman.' And this is the best part ... when her publicicst called to tell her the exciting new, Sandra responded by saying "That's ridiculous." HA HA! I love her. And it gets better, when the magazine asked her about her beauty philosophy she said, "The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying." So do I count? Currently wearing no make up, yoga pants and a sports bra.

Video of One Direction singer goes viral over soccer game "exposure"

OK - I am embarassed to admit I just Googled and then watched this video. All for the job people, all for the job. So apparently a member of One Direction was caught on camera running around on a soccer field...and he wasn't wearing a...ahem...cup or jock strap thingy. So his One Direction man parts are flopping around. And it's crazy! Fans are going WILD over this video. Louis Tomlinson (the One Direction band member with the floppy thing) has not issued any sort of statement. I mean should he?

WOW! Not sure who is at fault here ... I mean it is the job of the reporter to report, right?

Kanye Don't Play That

The thought that both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made the list of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2015 is hard to swallow.

Maybe it's because we're only four months in to 2015, and other more influential people won't be stepping up their game until the summer or fall.

Whatever.

The other night, Time held its 100 Gala in New York, and on the red carpet, comedian Amy Schumer - in my eyes, a deserving recipient of the recognition - threw herself to the ground in front of Kimye.

Payback, in some respect, for Kanye's pranks at the Grammys with Taylor Swift a few years ago and Beck a few months ago.

And guess what? Kanye didn't like it one bit. He and Kim both frowned at Amy and moved along, not even bothering to help her up.

Popeye Bye Bye

A shift supervisor at a Popeye's in Texas claims she was fired for refusing to pay back money robbed from the store at gunpoint while she was in charge.

Popeye's says that's not 100% true - she was fired for having too much money in the cash register.

That would be $400 - according to the woman, about an hour's worth of chicken and biscuits on that particular evening.

So let that be a lesson to you: even if you've got 14 customers in line, you tell them all they have to wait, because you've got too darned much money in the register.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?

I'm surprised they didn't get mad at her for letting the guy jump on the counter.
