As we’ve shared in our recent What’s Hot This Week, the Minnesota Vikings narrowly defeated the New Orleans Saints with a Stefon Diggs touchdown during the contest’s closing moments.
Check the sequence below:
Now listen to how Minnesota Vikings’ local play-by-play announcer Paul Allen called the touchdown.
A Minneapolis miracle
The best part has to be Allen yelling “It’s a Minneapolis miracle!” as the Vikings win. It simply gave us goosebumps. Not only is the commentary rousing; Allen gave the play a terrific nickname as it happened.
The “Minneapolis miracle” is now arguably the most memorable pass in Vikings history.

The Jack Rose is an American cocktail through and through. The drink consists of applejack (ideally Laird’s – it’s the most popular producer), grenadine, and lemon juice.
The drink is distinctly American because of applejack. The country’s first distillery license went to Laird’s in 1780. Fun fact: applejack is so American that George Washington, one of the U.S. Founding Fathers, used to distill the stuff in Mt. Vernon.
The Jack Rose is like a whiskey sour, except it isn’t as boozy. It tastes like someone splashed lemonade in your apple juice. This means it’s an easy drink for any palate, and just as easy to have more than one.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own.
Jack Rose ingredients
2 oz. of Laird’s Applejack
1 oz. of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz. of grenadine (preferably homemade)
Chill the cocktail glass.
Combine the applejack, grenadine, and lemon juice in the cocktail shaker.
Fill shaker with ice and shake it vigorously for about 15 seconds until its contents are well chilled.
Strain the contents of the shaker into the cocktail glass. Tip: strain the drink twice to keep it sharp.
Squeeze the lemon twist over the surface of the cocktail, with the skin side facing outward to release the fruit’s fragrant oils.
Rub the rim of the cocktail glass with the skin side of the lemon twist, but make sure you discard the twist afterwards.
Pornhub, the world’s largest porn site, compiles their search data every year and shows us interesting stats about what people look for there. For 2017, the main takeaway is this: women searched and watched more porn than ever before.
Last year alone, Pornhub saw 28.5 billion visitors – with about 81 million per day – and 24.7 billion searches, which is around 50,000 searches per minute and 800 searches per second.
2017 top searches
“The numbers are showing that people are more interested than ever before in ‘Porn for Women’, making this the top trending search throughout the year, increasing by over 1400%. Regardless of how you define porn for women, it feels good to be spreading… the good word.
Rick and Morty porn parodies also blasted off this year, and the passing fascination with Fidget Spinners caused a big spike in porn searches (and some very creative amateur videos). Lots of people discovered ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) porn this year, too and liked what they heard. We also saw major increases in the popularity of Hentai around the world, and fans of cheerleaders caused a massive boost in these searches as well.”
“Once again, the numbers show that searches for women enjoying other women top the charts, with 2017 being the third year in a row that ‘lesbian’ was the number one searched term worldwide.”
Marvel recently aired a TV ad for Black Panther, the next installment in its shared cinematic universe. If you’re a Kendrick Lamar fan, you’re in for a treat; the commercial features one of his new beats.
The trailer is a mix between existing and new footage. It plays up the conflict between T’Challa, the titular Black Panther and his nemesis Erik Killmonger.
The film is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War. When T’Challa returns home to Wakanda, enemies conspire to bring down his kingdom. T’Challa must team up with CIA agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje – Wakanda’s special forces – to prevent a world war.
Who’s who in Black Panther
The film stars:
Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther
Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger
Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia
Danai Guira as Okoye
Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi
Letitia Wright as Shuri
Winston Duke as M’Baku
Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross
Forest Whitaker as Zuri

The best part about the video is that it doesn’t reveal a lot about the upcoming film.
Black Panther arrives on February 18, right before Avengers: Infinity War on May 4.
The Ataribox is an upcoming gaming console that will play Atari 2600 games. It will also run on Linux and let users install compatible games.
Interestingly, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais said back in 2015 that the company doesn’t have any plans to create a new console. Despite this, a trailer came out during the E3 2017 gaming expo revealing the Ataribox.
At first glance, the console looked like a revamp of Atari 2600 console – particularly because of its wood-like panel. And apparently, the Ataribox is an updated version. As mentioned earlier, the console will play Atari 2600 games via emulation.
This was confirmed by an email sent by Atari to people who signed up for notifications from the Ataribox website.
The Ataribox will be crowdfunded via Indiegogo. The news came out in a French note to investors last November, which unfortunately didn’t spread despite the excitement for the console. “To limit risk taking, this product will initially be launched within the framework of a crowdfunding campaign,” the note reads.
While the Indiegogo was scheduled last December 14, Atari revealed that the crowdfunding has been officially paused.
What Ataribox will look like
Atari’s images show two designs:
One has a black shell save with a red illuminated panel on the back.
The other looks like the Atari 2600 with a black chassis and a wood grain front (apparently the wood is real).
The black/red design comes with a front-facing red illuminated Atari logo, while the black/brown design has a front-facing white illuminated logo.
