Category: nnrlwaof Summer Camp, Day 20! Everybody Says Don’t, But Not Cleo Laine!

first_img MOST GIF-ABLE MOMENT WHY WE LOVE IT Let’s be serious. If we lived in the soap opera set that Cleo Laine apparently calls home, we’d be total recluses. But not Cleo. Decked out in her finest leopard print onesie, our favorite Tony-nominated dog serenader takes us on a walking prancing tour of the Big Apple. All while singing a Sondheim tune! And while blatantly disregarding security barricades. There’s children falling on ice. There’s children falling on a playground. There’s just lots of children falling, for some reason. OVERALL CAMP FACTOR 300 out of 300 feet (which is about how far she threw that rock at 1:02. Touchdown!) LOOK OUT FOR… 1:57. The sassiest traffic sign in existence. We get it! Everybody and everything says don’t!center_img View Comments We’re gonna be honest: Things around the offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in!last_img read more

Ighalo’s agent claims Man Utd transfer was striker’s ‘prize’

first_imgOdion Ighalo’s agent, Patrick Bastianelli, believes the striker ‘deserved his prize’ of fulfilling his dream to play for Man Utd. Loading… The Nigerian was a shock arrival at Old Trafford on deadline day of the January window, as United sealed a loan deal to bring him back to the UK from China. Ighalo had performed well during a previous Premier League stint at Watford, but had all-but given up on signing for his boyhood club. Yet agent Bastianelli insists his client’s reward is a product of years of hard work. “Odion is reaping what he deserves after many sacrifices, after many years around Europe,” Bastianelli told TuttoSport (via Sport Witness ). “Manchester is a prize for everything he’s shown in recent years.” Ighalo has enjoyed a roaring start to life at United, netting four times in as many starts, including a cracker in Thursday’s rout against LASK. Rumours of a permanent contract have swirled as his impressive form has taken many by surprise, but not Basitanelli.

Couldn’t believe it…” Meanwhile, another of United’s new boys has caught the eye of Red Devils full-back Diogo Dalot, who claimed Bruno Fernandes is already on his way to being a club great.
