The Comment Awards Will Be Your Valentine

Happy Friday, candy hearts! I hope you and your girlfriend are celebrating the day by wearing matching Yoncé underwear and watching DeAnne Smith’s “Apocalypse” video on repeat. (“Nerdy Love Song” would also be acceptable.)

But enough about V-day, let’s talk about the big O. As the fortnight of doing crazy things on ice at 80mph continues, this interview with out Olympic snowboarder Belle Brockhoff is worth checking out. Ali has advice on how cordcutters can keep up with events and Riese recommends reading “The Sochi Project” to add some context to the Games. 

Speaking of athletes, British soccer player Casey Stone came out publicly this week and so did Michael Sam. Sam might just become the first openly gay player in the NFL!

Hansen’s at the helm of a new PLL recap, Vikki’s still keeping up with “The Fosters” and Nina wrote an ode to everyone’s best frenemy, Paris Geller. And have you even seen Stef and Brittani’s dramatic reading of Kristen Stewart’s poetry?!
