Drew Brees Has Set a New NFL Record.
Brees broke Peyton Manning’s record of 71,940 career passing yards on Monday night, executing a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre’Quan Smith in the second quarter of the New Orleans Saints’ game against the Washington Redskins.
ESPN notes the game as “one of the best performances of his 18-year career,” with Brees finnessing 26 of 29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns.
The 39-year-old said he’d been rehearsing the moment in his head ahead of the game, and that it “played out even greater than I ever could’ve imagined.”
Watch him share more about his record moment below.
You Can Now Cop Notorious B.I.G.’s Iconic Versace Shades Again.
VIBE reports that an updated colorway way of a limited-edition design is exclusively available at Barneys as a part of Versace’s The Clans Collection. It’ll only be available for one month as of yesterday (Oct. 8), so if you’re trying get your fall fit off, now’s the time.
As VIBE notes, Donatella Versace was a fan of Biggie’s style. “I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often,” she told The FADER in 2011. “He had such a mind. So I loved what he was doing and how he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think a lot of people started to know about Versace because of him.”
This Mom Has #HimToo Trending on Twitter After Getting Shut Down and Deleting Her Account.
Long story short, someone’s momma appears to be so upset with the #MeToo movement that she made up a story about her son’s inability to date in “the current climate of false accusations by radical feminists.” It wasn’t long before her claim was shut down by her other son, who confirmed that—while his brother is a pretty decent guy—everything else their mother tweeted was nothing but #FakeNews.
Seems to us like she was likely seeking attention, but she may have gotten more than she bargained for. Her account as of now currently “doesn’t exist.”
You know what they say: if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Oh, and the spin-off memes? Priceless.
