50 Shades Of Purple: Brian Kelly's Facial Hues

Brian Kelly is an amazing football coach who's led Notre Dame's Fighting Irish to victory countless times.

Brian Kelly is also a very famous football coach, with over 130,000 people following his verified Twitter account.

While Kelly is definitely famous for his coaching skills, let's not forget his other claim to fame: a face that often resembles an eggplant.

While I am not an insider, it is rumored that Coach Kelly may be responsible for the band Maroon 5's name.

I, for one, am impressed by the different shades Kelly's face is able to display. They are diverse. SO diverse.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
