In the wake of the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce news, the Internet seems to be #TeamAniston. Since Jolie’s filing broke the Internet early Tuesday, folks have been having a field day imagining what Pitt’s first wife, tabloid torment Jennifer Aniston, thinks of their surprise split after 12 years together and six children. Of course, Jen was married to Brad when he fell for his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star in 2004. She famously said her ex-husband had a “sensitivity chip” missing for flaunting his relationship with Jolie before the ink was dry on their divorce papers.While Jen is happily-ever-aftering with Justin Theroux, whom she married last year (one year after the Brangelina wedding), these are all still pretty priceless…

You’ll never believe this, but Robert Griffin III played football on Sunday and got injured. RGIII wasn’t great during Cleveland’s 29-10 loss to Philadelphia, as he completed 12 of his 26 attempted passes for 190 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception. It was his debut with a new team, so he deserves some slack, but he still struggled. Griffin also ran the ball five times for 37 yards. His most notable run came during the fourth quarter, when he tried to pick up a first down with his legs but got absolutely blown up by Eagles DB Jalen Mills. Not only was he down in a heap for a second, but as it turns out, this hit led to RGIII suffering an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. He described the injury as a sprained shoulder and said after the game “The guy kind of surprised me there on the sideline, trying to get out of bounds. It’s just an unfortunate play. … It hurt pretty bad but I felt like I could get back out there. … I’m in pain. But I’ll be okay.” Griffin deserves some credit because he put his body on the line in an attempt to help his team win. But RGIII, buddy, you should know by now that you’re not exactly made of titanium. Chill with this stuff, dude.
