Well how do you like that! As you know the Boston site just post the “Which Barstool Blogger Are You” quiz and the vast majority of you got me. See? We’re not that different after all. It actually turns out most of you are exactly like me. Lucky you. It also turns out that Iowa isn’t some alien planet that doesn’t truly exist, it’s actually a place that you want to live which shouldn’t be all the surprising because this is the greatest state on the map. I will say I’m a little confused by all of the people on Twitter saying they’re going to commit suicide no. Um what? That makes zero sense. You guys saw my figure skating routine, right? How could you not want to be that guy? Pussy magnet to the max. Don’t fight the fact that you’re all honorary Iowans. Embrace it. We’re the coolest mother fuckers on the planet. And if you ever wanna come over and watch Tommy Boy my door is always open.
Take the quiz here and find out that you’re most likely me.
Iowa Press-Citizen- Iowa City’s largest bar, once a hotspot for 19- and 20-year-olds, will again be allowed to admit those under the legal drinking age for shows after successfully applying for an exemption to the city’s 21-only ordinance. The Union Bar, 121 E. College St., received a city-issued entertainment venue exception certificate Tuesday, making it the sixth Iowa City bar currently permitted to admit 19- and 20-year-olds after 10 p.m. for shows. To be granted the exemption, a bar must host shows at least 150 days a year, have a low citation rate for underage alcohol possession, have a permanent stage and professional sound and lighting equipment, and give at least 50 percent of entry fees to performers. Other downtown bars that have entertainment exceptions are Blue Moose Tap House, Gabe’s, the Iowa City Yacht Club, Studio 13 and The Mill Restaurant. The Union, which opened in 1993, according to its website, is the largest bar in Iowa City, with an occupancy of 854. The bar also markets itself as the “biggest bar in the Big Ten.”
Well that’s absolutely perfect timing. Just a few days before the Barstool Blackout Tour rolls into Iowa City the Union picks up an exemption from the 21-only rule. Coincidence? Probably but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. That means if you’re under 21 you can stay at the bar passed 10pm. The fact that any bar in Iowa City has this rule is kind of bizarre to tell you the truth. I understand it’s purpose but it’s just a little bit misguided. Anyway, combine the Union getting this exemption and the Blackout tour coming to the bar on Saturday there is absolutely no excuse for you not to be there. I’ll be there partying it up. Maybe if we see each other we can hug it out. I’m open to that. You can get tickets here. See you guys there.
Happy Friday. Enjoy your coffee. NSFW link click here. It’s a full album of this chick but just keep scrolling and she’ll get naked eventually. Sort of like a flip book.

NBA.SI- The 2012 first-round pick and unrestricted free agent has signed a 10-day contract with the Kings, the club announced Thursday. Sacramento immediately assigned White to their D-League affiliate, the Reno Bighorns. USA Today Sports reported last week that the Kings were eyeing White, who hasn’t been on an NBA roster since he was released by the Sixers in October. White, 22, was selected by the Rockets with the No. 16 pick in the 2012 draft but he spent his entire rookie season on the sidelines in Houston, engaged in a months-long dispute with Rockets management over the treatment of his mental health. White suffers from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, panic attacks and a fear of flying and he sought a formalized protocol to handle his mental health treatment as well as the appointment of an independent doctor — “a medical point person” — who would make the determination on whether or not he would be cleared to play. After a public back-and-forth with the Rockets that involved a suspension, White eventually suited up for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Houston’s D-League affiliate. The versatile forward averaged 11.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 16 appearances. Houston chose to resolve its issues with White by trading him to Philadelphia in July 2013. The Sixers brought White to camp and gave him a shot during the preseason but decided to release him prior to the start of the regular season.

Remember Royce White? I barely do. Just one of those guys that you eventually forget about once you realize that they’ll never quite get it. To refresh your memory, White transferred from Minnesota to play at Iowa State where he had a good season (averaged 13, 9 and 5) and jumped to the NBA where he was drafted by the Houston Rockets where things quickly turned sour because White refused to fly on planes (kind of a big issue for a professional basketball player) because of panic attacks. He never played for the Houston Rockets and instead played for their D-League team and was eventually traded to the 76ers in a moved that made it possible for the Rockets to sign Dwight Howard. Houston’s GM went onto say that White was the worst first round pick ever. White was later cut by the 76ers without ever playing a minute for the team.
If none of that jogs your memory, maybe you’ll remember him for knocking up groupies in an RV, getting them pregnant and then blocking them on Twitter.
Im writing you because I’m very frustrated. I didn’t want to speak up but at this point enough is enough. I met royce white back in January in LA on a set for a video blog we shot for a charity organization. Instantly the chemistry was there and we hung out in la (he was there for the Dr Phil taping). We kept in contact, we would text each other EVERYDAY, face time, all that and we called each other best friends. I visited royce in Houston for all star weekend and down in McAllen while he was playing for the D League. I even hit the road with him in his RV as we traveled across the country to his away games while he was with the Vipers. I was even with him when news broke out that he had multiple women pregnant. He was very upset when your blog put that article out. It affected his anxiety tremendously. the last encounter royce and I had, I became pregnant and I found out shortly after my last visit with him. He has blocked me on twitter and stopped answering my calls and texts. Royce white did a complete 180 and now I don’t exist to him but I’m left with this difficult situation at hand to handle on my own. I will hoe ever defend myself and say i am not like those other girls we were friends before anything and I’m hurt and confused as to why I am now being treated like this. I’m not here to bash royce. He was a nice guy. He is just going about this the wrong way. U can’t turn your back to this I have attached us and the RV he rides in to verify my story
So now he’s got a 10-day contract with the Kings. Maybe he’ll finally make his NBA debut?
You wanna know who knows next to nothing about hockey? This guy. I have a decent understanding of the rules but I’m lost after that. Pretty surprising given my skills that were displayed in my figure skating routine. You’d think I’d been on skates my whole life playing hockey. But even with that said I like money and I’m sure you do too . Here’s your chance to win easy money by playing Draftstreet. Even though I don’t know much about hockey I’m still going to throw my hat in the ring because there’s no reason not to. I recommend you do the same.
