Was she picked for her muscles or Twitter followers?

Lolo Jones is again drawing controversy after she was picked for the U.S. bobsled team to compete in the Sochi Olympics.

A few other bobsledders were less than enthused with the decision.

"I should have been working harder on gaining Twitter followers than gaining muscle mass," Emily Azevedo told USA Today.

Team officials have defended their decision. Jones has remained mum on the subject as she prepares to launch herself down an icy slide at over 60 miles per hour.

Even billionaires are just like us.

Bill Gates may be incredibly smart but against a chess master, he's still a regular guy.

While appearing on a Norwegian-Swedish television talk show, Gates took on newest and (one of the youngest) chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen.

This might finally give Knicks fans something to cheer about.

New York Knick Carmelo Anthony scored a career-high of 62 points during a game against the Charlotte Bobcats Friday night.

Not only is it the highest number of points scored by a player at Madison Square Garden and by any Knick in the franchise's history, it also helped the Knicks beat the Bobcats 125-96.

Best of all, Anthony even got in one very impressive halfcourt shot.
