On Monday night during the Warriors game 4 against the Rockets, Stephen Curry tried to block a shot by Trevor Ariza but ended up flying over Ariza’s back and landing hard on his hand, back and head. Although they were in Houston at the Toyota Center, the entire arena went quiet with great worry about Curry’s condition. They then applauded when he got up and was able to walk back to the locker room. Though he was able to walk everyone was still worried about his possible injuries including what many thought was a concussion. Curry was diagnosed with a head contusion. Not only was he okay, he came back out and got back in the game! Since everyone saw he was alright, Twitter did it’s usual business of creating memes out of his crazy fall.

Recently, New England Patriots fans set up a GoFundMe to raise $1 million to pay the fine from the DeflateGate investigation. Last time I checked they raised over $16,000! Now their Super Bowl opponents are trying to use the service as well.
