Sydney Leroux Proudly Wipes Her A** With Donald Trump's Face
Huffington Post - over 1 year
My husband just ordered a bunch of these to our house. I love him. #amazingtoiletpaper A photo posted by Sydney Leroux Dwyer (@sydneyleroux) on May 24, 2016 at 1:01pm PDT Sydney Leroux quite literally wants Donald Trump to kiss her a**. The U.S. women's national team forward has the perfect 2016 Election accessory: Trump toilet paper. It's honestly the only place where his face belongs — right where the sun don't shine.

ESPN Is Running A Segment On Turf That Should Worry Everyone
Huffington Post - over 2 years
ESPN's "E:60" is set to air an investigative report on Tuesday night that will examine the link between artificial turf and cancer in athletes. The piece will examine whether enough has been done scientifically and policy-wise to appropriately address possible health risks from artificial turf. In the segment, former U.S. women's soccer midfielder and ESPN reporter Julie Foudy speaks to University of Washington goalkeeper coach Amy Griffin. Griffin compiled a list of almost 200 athletes with cancer who have played on artificial turf that contains tiny black rubber pellets called "crumb rubber." "E:60" released a three-minute excerpt from the piece Tuesday afternoon that delves into the lack of attention on the issue from Environmental Protection Agency. Out of the almost 200 athletes currently on Griffin's list, 150 of those were soccer players -- 95 of those 150 were goalkeepers. While there is no scientific evidence to say there is a direct correlation, G...
