Get ready for the snowquester and Lauren Silberman and the NFL are feeling the online flames
The Snowquester cometh, Jeb Bush is being reasonable again, and some NFL fans and commentators are seriously peeved about a woman (ewwww girls) trying out for the league. Welcome to your online trends report for Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
What could be Baltimore's only major winter storm of the season is approaching and should dump some snow on us. How serious is going to be? That depends on the forecaster. The storm has been described as everything from an "atmospheric bomb" to just a few inches. In my non-professional, non-meteorological opinion, I suggest: FREAK OUT!!!! But leave me some milk and TP, OK?
Meanwhile, former college soccer player Lauren Silberman tried out for the NFL this weekend, and the reaction has been brutal. The first woman to try out, Silberman didn't make the cut, attributing her poor performance to an injury, but the online response has been intense and weird. Some claim it was a publicity stunt, and many are needlessly attacking Silberman. She seriously bombed her tryout; Isn't that enough? These NFL fans should really take down the "no girls allowed" sign from their treehouse and grow up.
Finally, Jeb Bush has a new book where he floats a new immigration plan, testing the 2016 waters. In "Immigration Wars," he's suggests residency over citizenship. "Over a period of time, they can have a legalized status that allows them to live a life of dignity," Bush writes.
