Really glad the “dude’s need to drink water out of something manly” market has been scooped up.

@mykectown, joking about “Liquid Death” — mountain water that comes in a tallboy aluminum can resembling beer packaging. The nonalcoholic beverage (again — it’s water), from former Netflix creative director Mike Cessario, is aimed at straight-edge punks, but its packaging and promise to “murder your thirst” struck many as over-the-top examples of toxic masculinity.

Generally, I really like Max Kellerman. But this. This Kobe-Kawhi take is not it.

@ll0ydd0bler, criticizing Max Kellerman for saying Tuesday on “First Take” that Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard was better in high-pressure situations than five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant. Kellerman’s argument hinged on Leonard’s massive Game 4 against the 76ers, when he scored 39 points, including a crucial 3-pointer in the final minute, leading the Raptors to victory. Toronto currently holds a 3-2 series lead. Kellerman’s take enraged co-host Stephen A. Smith and analyst Jay Williams — so much so that Williams walked off set.

Like I said, this is just a cable box. A fancy one, though.

@pvtsuave, dismissing Xbox’s new One S All-Digital Edition, released Wednesday. The console is the same as the Xbox One S, but doesn’t have a disc drive. Fans weren’t impressed: Some said they love owning physical game discs, while others said the new console was unnecessary since many games either have both physical and digital copies or are digital-only.

There’s is nothing to be said about this situation except shame on both of them.

@Ripitrachel, reacting to news that Jenelle Evans was fired from “Teen Mom 2.” MTV said Tuesday it had ended its relationship with Evans in early April. The announcement follows recent reports that Evans’ husband, David Eason, shot and killed their dog for allegedly “snapping at” their daughter. (Eason was fired in 2018 for making homophobic comments.) The Columbus County (N.C.) Sheriff’s Office and Animal Control are investigating Eason.
