- And from the files of the National Enquirer, Tony Romo allegedly dumped Jessica Simpson at an IHOP. Then he pancaked his ass outta there. (Sports Crackle Pop)

- And finally, if those summer movie blues have gotten you down, at least we have this to look forward to: Mike Judge + Jason Bateman + Ben Affleck in full Ted Kaczynski garb = comic gold. Here’s the trailer for “Extract”:
