Social News Daily Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:56:09 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Aldon Smith Suspended Nine Games Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:56:09 +0000 The San Francisco 49ers are going to have to play their first nine games of the season this year without linebacker Aldon Smith.

The NFL announced today that Smith was being suspended for nine games after violating the league’s personal conduct policies on multiple occasions. According to ESPN, Smith was suspended four games for violating the league’s substance-abuse police and another five games for violating the personal conduct policy.

Smith was arrested in 2013 for a DUI and three counts of possessing illegal firearms. It was his second DUI since entering the league since 2011. In July, Smith was sentenced to 11 days of work release in Santa Clara County.

The 49ers said that they have been planning for Aldon Smith’s suspension since his arrest in 2013.

49ers general manager Trent Baalke said: “Our organization has known this decision would come and we have prepared for it. Aldon has taken responsibility for his actions and has continued to show growth personally and professionally. We will continue to support him, but it is time to put this matter behind us and focus on the season ahead.”

The 49ers may have prepared for Aldon Smith’s suspension but he’ll still be hard to replace. Smith has had 42 sacks in his last 43 regular season games.

In addition to hurting the 49ers playoff chances, Aldon Smith’s suspension will also hurt his wallet. ESPN reports that Smith’s suspension will cost him more than $1 million.

Jesús Montero Throws Ice Cream Sandwich At Heckling Scout Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:13:04 +0000 Jesús Montero used an ice cream sandwich as a weapon this week during a minor league baseball game.

Montero is one of the top prospects in the farm system but his weight and conditioning has been a bit of an issue with scouts. The minor league player showed up to training camp 40 pounds overweight and he’s a little sensitive about his weight.

Montero apparently lost it after a scout reportedly heckled him for not hustling off the field and then sent him an ice cream sandwich in the dugout.

NESN reports that Montero flipped out and tried to climb up into the stands to fight the scout. The baseball player wasn’t able to get close enough to punch the scout, he was held back by his teammates, but he did get close enough to hurl an ice cream sandwich in the scout’s direction.

The scout, Butch Baccala, says that the incident is being inaccurately reported by the media. Baccala says that he never sent an ice cream sandwich to Jesus Montero and he certainly didn’t mean to anger the minor league player.

Baccala said: “It’s not what is being portrayed … Of course I wasn’t [trying to instigate Montero]. Why would I? I work for the Mariners. I’ve worked my [expletive] off for the Mariners. Why would I do anything to hurt anybody? That wasn’t even close to the intention.”

We don’t know exactly what happened between Jesus Montero and Butch Baccala. But we do know that an ice cream sandwich was needlessly wasted.

Keira publicly complained to Allure magazine about her breasts being digitally enhanced for the King Arthur movie poster back in 2004.

“They always pencil in my boobs. I was only angry when they were really, really droopy. I thought, ‘Well if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make me perky breasts.’”

Harrison Ford Returns, ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ Resumes Filming Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:59:06 +0000 Han Solo is back. Harrison Ford has returned to the set at Pinewood Studios in the UK to resume shooting on Star Wars: Episode 7. 

Ford was injured while filming the new Star Wars movie back in June. The actor reportedly broke his leg while filming a scene aboard the Millennium Falcon and was sidelined for several weeks. The actor was spotted walking without a limp earlier this month at the premiere of The Expendables 3 and he has now fully recovered and is ready to start filming again.

Variety reports that J.J. Abrams and the rest of the Star Wars: Episode 7 continued filming for a few weeks after Ford’s injury but they paused production for a few weeks in August. Now that Ford has fully recovered, shooting has restarted in the UK.

Disney said that the hiatus would not effect the movie’s release date which is currently set for December of 2015.

Exact plot details aren’t known at this time but rumor has it that the new movie will center on a search for Luke Skywalker. Han Solo, Princess Leia, and some of the other original cast members will aid in the search for the legendary Jedi master.

Are you excited for the new Star Wars movie? We haven’t seen any photos of Harrison Ford as Han Solo yet but we did get a sneak peak of the costume earlier this month. You can check out the photos here.

Britney Spears Posts Instagram Video After Breakup Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:51:22 +0000 Britney Spears is single again.

The singer recently dumped David Lucado, her boyfriend of 18-months, after a video surfaced that reportedly showed him cheating on her. Spears posted a video to Instagram shortly after the break-up saying that she was having a really “sh*tty day.”

Fortunately, it looks like Spears also found the solution to a “sh*tty day.” All you have to do is find a person with hearts on their shoes.

Spears said: “OK if you ever have a really, really, sh–ty day, find someone with shoes with hearts on them … Made my day!”

According to NY Daily News, the video of Lucado making out with another women was being shopped around to various tabloid outlets. It was reportedly purchased by Spears’ father Jamie Spears who wanted to protect his daughter from embarrassment of the video going public.

TMZ reports that Jamie Spears is also threatening to sue anyone who tries to make another copy of the video public.

Jamie Spears may have stopped the video from leaking online, for now, but Britney Spears may have just confirmed it’s existence with her “sh*tty day” video.

Jimmy Kimmel Live: Mini ‘Friends’ Reunion with Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, And Courtney Cox [Watch] Fri, 29 Aug 2014 02:10:01 +0000

Fans of Friends have been itching for any kind of reunion, small or big, no matter where it is located, all we know is that one is needed. NBC has yet to comment on any Friends reunion but luckily those fans have Jimmy Kimmel.

On Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel Live had guest, Jennifer Aniston, play along with Kimmel’s odd request: to read fan-fiction he created about the show Friends with Jennifer playing Rachel and Jimmy playing Ross. Props to whomever re-created that kitchen because WOW. Amazing job, someone deserves a raise.

Halfway through the sketch, in which Jennifer was either pretending to be extremely uncomfortable or she truly was, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow popped in to have some lines. You can imagine how crazy the audience went. Especially when the lyrics to the Friends theme song were so cleverly placed in the sketch.

The video has already gotten over 4 million views with only being online for 2 days. Obviously Friends fever is still in full swing.

What did you think of the mini-reunion?

The newleyweds actually had friends in common but never met until Krista was on a temporary assignment and went into James’ room to change his dressing and he extended an invite to a benefit.

Costello told the Today Show, “One thing that she hates that I always say is I’m actually glad I got blown up. I wish everyone else didn’t have to. But I don’t think I would have ever met her if I didn’t.”

Golden Retriever Blows Bubbles In Swimming Pool [Video] Fri, 29 Aug 2014 01:02:08 +0000

Jessica Nichols has one cute dog. Diesel, the 95 pound golden retriever, loves to spend his summer days in the pool… blowing bubbles.

Not only can this pup blow bubbles flawlessly in the pool, he can do it on command.

Diesel’s talent went viral on YouTube recently, grossing over half a million views in a week and a half. Probably due to the fact he is a dog who finds ways to stay cool in the summer heat. And oh yeah, it’s an animal on the internet. Those other dogs in the background should take note of Diesel’s recent internet fame and step their game up!

Not sure why 18 people decided to thumbs down that video. Maybe they are “cat people.”
