The Colts’ keg stand celebration is an instant classic
Nelson thought he scored a touchdown, then asked three teammates to grab his legs. Quenton Nelson had zero career carries in his professional and collegiate career coming into Week 11’s game against the Jaguars. That just meant he had six years to plan his touchdown celebration. Nelson, the Colts’ All-Pro offensive lineman, took a handoff into the end zone for what was ruled a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter of the Colts’ win over the Jaguars. Quenton Nelson TD!!! #Colts pic.twitter.com/xlwZftxiSv— Locked On Colts Podcast (@LockedOnColts) November 17, 2019 The second-year standout, fully realizing the weight of this moment, made the most of his opportunity: They might have taken @BigQ56's touchdown away. But we'll always have this. pic.twitter.com/qoh9Znt1n9— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) November 17, 2019 That’s starting guard Mark Glowinski settling in as a half barrel of what I can only assume in Natural Light. From there, it only takes three other linemen to lift the 330-pound Nelson up into the air for a poorly executed five-second keg stand. Unfortunately for Nelson, his touchdown was overturned upon review, keeping his career yards-per-rush average at an even 0.0. Indianapolis scored on touchdown pass a play later. Since Nelson had reported in as an eligible receiver on third down, he couldn’t return to the field for his team’s scoring play — resulting in the first missed offensive snap of his career and some well-deserved resting time after taxing his arms via fake chugging. So congratulations, Quenton. While the officials may have taken away his touchdown, the refs can never erase the moment where you successfully convinced a teammate to cosplay as a keg of beer.

Bill V Bowie: How (not) to sell a tech idea
The year is 1995, and Bill Gates sets about explaining to a skeptic David Letterman on his popular late-night why the Internet is, in fact, “the new big thing.” Yet the deliciously vintage clip below actually shows Gates failing miserably at presenting the Internet as something more than a frivolous fad. You would have thought that for someone who had become the world’s wealthiest man by developing and peddling technology, this would be an easy sell – even if pitched against a clever talk show host intent on scoring a gag or two. Contrast that to a different 1990s interview,… This story continues at The Next Web

George Takei says his dream dinner party would include his 'Star Trek' colleagues 'with one exception'
Michael Loccisano/Getty Images, NBC In a Q&A with The Guardian, actor George Takei was asked who he'd invite to his dream dinner party, and he said he'd pick his colleagues from "Star Trek," "with one exception." The tongue-in-cheek remark was probably about Takei's infamous decades-long feud with William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk to Takei's Sulu. In his 1994 autobiography "To the Stars," Takei claimed Shatner would act like he didn't know who he was on set. He also said Shatner changed a script to prevent Sulu for receiving command of a starship. Shatner has fought back against those accusations before, especially after Takei didn't invite him to his wedding in 2008. Takei reiterated his dislike of Shatner on "Real Time with Bill Maher" in 2014. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If George Takei had a dream dinner party, he'd invite his colleagues from "Star Trek," minus one. In a Q&A with The Guardian, the actor, best known for his social media presence and for originating the character of Sulu on "Star Trek: The Original Series," said there would be "one exception" to getting the cast back together.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: People are still debating the pink or grey sneaker, 2 years after it went viral.

White House insiders, including a Mike Pence aide, are testifying that Trump's Ukraine interactions seemed 'inappropriate' and 'irregular'
SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images Witnesses are shedding light on President Donald Trump's order earlier this year to halt military aid to Ukraine, a US ally, in the impeachment inquiry against Trump. Two transcripts that House impeachment investigators released on Saturday show depositions from Jennifer Williams, a special adviser on Europe and Russia to Vice President Mike Pence, and Timothy Morrison, a National Security Council official.

Prince Andrew showed was true power is: turning a blind eye to abuse | Suzanne Moore
In his astonishingly stupid interview with Emily Maitlis, the Queen’s favourite son gave us mortals a window into a sordid worldIf Prince Andrew thought being grilled by Emily Maitlis was a good idea, God only knows what he thinks might be a bad one. Sadly I think I know. Still, as we now all realise, there are lots of things that the prince simply does not notice. Hordes of available teenage girls. Are they staff? Is it a railway station? Who are these people? The interview had been widely trailed, but the nation was not prepared for this level of monstrous self-pity and frankly astonishing stupidity.Lying is the new normal for leaders: Donald Trump, another former friend of Jeffrey Epstein, lies non-stop; the current British prime minister lies and dissembles daily. So I guess we just thought Andrew would make more of an effort to at least come across as genuine and competent. We his disrespectful subjects gathered, strangely united, to see how he would justify the photographs of himself with a man who plea-bargained his way out of statutory rape charges, never mind the allegations made by Virginia Giuffre (and strongly denied by Andrew), that she was forced to have sex with the prince when she was aged 17.
