Can you believe that this 30 year old man's parents had to take him to court in order to get him out of their house? You have to read this story!
A 30-year-old man court-ordered to vacate his parents' home on Tuesday said he should be given more time to leave because of how much his parents "harassed" him about moving out.
Michael Rotondo, of Camillus, New York, had been living rent-free in his parents' Syracuse-area home for eight years when a State Supreme Court judge ruled on Tuesday in his parents’ favor, ordering him to move out.

Some celebrities are born famous, but the most fascinating ones are the stars who take years to get there.
Tiffany Haddish may be the breakout star of the moment, but that’s only because she had years of comedy work behind her before starring in “Girls Trip.” And Judi Dench and Morgan Freeman may seem to have been in every classy movie for decades, but Freeman wasn’t famous until he was 52, and Dench until she was 60.

Stephen Curry explodes in third quarter, Warriors deal Rockets their worst playoff loss ever, 126-85, to take 2-1 series lead
The most prolific shooter in NBA history made just three of his 20 three-point attempts through two-and-a-half games of the Western Conference Finals.
But great shooters always find a way out of slumps, and great doesn’t even begin to describe Stephen Curry’s third quarter Sunday night. The Warriors’ superstar point guard dazzled Oracle Arena to the tune of 18 points on perfect seven for seven shooting in the third quarter en route to a game-high 35 points, and the Golden State Warriors blew out the Houston Rockets 126-85 to take a 2-1 series lead in the Western Conference Finals.

The Cavs got an old fashioned beatdown last night!
BOSTON – LeBron James settled into a seat at the postgame news conference, and if you didn’t see the Boston Celtics’ 108-83 drubbing of James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, you wouldn’t believe it happened.
