Tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Patriots and the Texans was supposed to be a battle of the AFC’s two best teams. Instead, through the first half it’s been a massacre. New England leads 21-0, and two of those touchdowns came via tight end Aaron Hernandez, whose importance has only risen in the wake of Rob Gronkowski’s injury.
Fittingly, Hernandez has celebrated both scores in stellar fashion. After the first, which came on a 7-yard reception out of the backfield — it also followed a New England fumble that Hernandez recovered — Hernandez did rapper Lil B’s signature cooking dance, then made it rain.
3. Lil B even went ahead and verified the cooking dance’s authenticity.

4. After the next score, which came on an uncovered 4-yard reception, Hernandez played a little dice, then made it rain with his gambling revenue.
Two great celebrations, one common theme: making it rain.
- Kids in California schools can no longer be opted out of vaccination on religious or personal grounds under a new law.
- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has faced political fallout from the "Bridgegate" scandal, is running for president. He's the 14th Republican in the race.
- Misty Copeland has become the first black female principal dancer in American Ballet Theater's 75-year history.
- And Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have decided to divorce after 10 years of marriage. ?
