Trending: Kirk Cousins and the Redskins break up; Left Shark breaks his silence

Redskins say “adios” to Kirk Cousins, NFL fans say “what?” 

@PeteBlackburn, reacting after the Redskins agreed to a trade to get quarterback Alex Smith from the Chiefs, and agreed to pay Smith the type of big, long-term money they refused to give Kirk Cousins. Nationals fan favorite Bryce Harper didn’t understand the Redskins’ choice. He tweeted: “Maybe I’m crazy, but how do you get rid of @KirkCousins8? Isn’t he good? Like really good? Just a thought!” Others were quick to point out that Cousins is lucky to get away from the Redskins. “Let’s be honest the winner in the NFL today is Kirk Cousins,” @TheeTedSmith tweeted.

People on social media identified with the feeling, and it quickly became a meme: “Bernie’s clapping like a man who just watched the love of his life walk down the aisle with the dude that cheated on her six times in college,” @porter_larkin tweeted.

Pizza for breakfast is good for you, says one dietician. 


@radiodrew, tweeting about the viral headline that pizza is a better breakfast than cereal. Registered dietitian Chelsey Amer told that a slice of pizza offers more protein than a bowl of cereal, keeping you full longer. “It’s not that pizza is a healthy breakfast, it’s that cereal is such crap,” @mmoyr weighed in.
