Best jokes of all time
Former England spinner Graeme Swann led the congratulations to cricket’s new world champions saying he felt like crying, singing and screaming all at once. England claimed their first ever men’s Cricket World Cup title at Lord’s in the most dramatic fashion, claiming victory by virtue of having struck more boundaries on the day when the match finished tied and a super over still could not separate the teams. And Swann tweeted: “That’s the best game I’ve ever seen and the last hour was the worst and most nervous I’ve ever felt. WHAT A WIN!!!!! @englandcricket officially World Cup champions, I feel like crying/singing/dancing/hugging/screaming all at once!!!!” Swann was joined in congratulating the winners by England’s key Test match bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad.

Kelly Lawler USA TODAY Published 3:42 PM EDT Jun 12, 2019 We're only halfway through 2019, but there's already enough TV to fill your time for the rest of the year. So far we've had dueling Fyre Festival documentaries ("Fyre" and "Fyre Fraud"), a live musical that wasn't so live ("Rent Live"), celebrities singing in poodle outfits ("The Masked Singer") and, of course, a farewell to a certain fantasy world ("Game of Thrones"). And that's all before "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Big Little Lies" returned this month. And with Emmy nominations swiftly approaching, members of the Television Academy are currently sorting through all the TV that debuted between June 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019, to decide who deserves to win at this year's ceremony (Fox, Sunday, Sept. 22). Before 2019 gets too far away from us, we're ranking the best TV of the year so far, including a mix of documentaries, comedies and more than one … [Read more...] about Best TV 2019: The 10 best shows of the year so far
opinion Eileen Rivers USA TODAY Published 3:26 PM EDT Apr 26, 2019 So former vice president Joe Biden finally did it. On Thursday, he officially announced his bid for president in a video that late-night comic Jimmy Fallon confused with a reverse mortgage infomercial. What does Biden's campaign mean for the rest of the Democrats in the race? He's still the most popular of the now more than 20 candidates on the left. And that's in spite of his many physical and verbal gaffes (which late-night comic Trevor Noah lists in abundance in today's webisode). That means that he could very well be the nominee to challenge President Donald Trump. Noah gives us front-row seats for what he calls "the most entertaining debate of all time." Take a look in today's Best of Late Night, above. After you do that, vote for your favorite joke in the poll below.

Paris-Saint Germain failed to wrap up the Ligue 1 title - thanks to possibly the worst miss of all time. Eric Choupo-Moting was less than a yard out from goal when Christopher Nkunku chipped Strasbourg keeper Matz Sels to play him in for what was literally a tap-in. The former Stoke City forward simply couldn't miss from that distance - or so everybody in the stadium thought. But PSG fans were stunned when he stabbed at the ball with his left foot - and actually stopped it from crossing the line. The miss was even worse than his blunder last month, when he ballooned a rebound over the bar from inside the six-yard box in PSG's 1-0 defeat to Toulouse. Chance to write his name in PSG history Choupo-Moting had given PSG the lead against Strasbourg on Sunday, but saw his goal cancelled out by Nuno da Costa. So as he bore down on the Strasbourg goal with the keeper stranded and no one to beat but the goal line itself, he had a golden chance to write his name into PSG folklore by … [Read more...] about Is Eric Choupo-Moting’s blunder for PSG the worst miss of all time?
