On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Thursday (but taped Wednesday), the U.S. Senator from Vermont and 2016 presidential contender Bernie Sanders danced — kind of — to “Disco Inferno,” for the refrain “Burn Baby Burn” has become associated with his campaign “Bern Baby Bern”. Judging by the clip above, he looked like he was more comfortable dancing backstage than in front of the studio audience. But, needless to say, he still has a long way to go before he can top Michelle Obama’s dance moves on the program earlier this year.
In addition to answering serious questions about the disappearing middle class posed by host Ellen DeGeneres, he answered less serious questions, like who his favorite One Direction member is (Harry Styles) and whether he prefers boxers or briefs (briefs).
DeGeneres commented that a lot of people like Sanders. She pointed to his interjection during the Democratic debate Tuesday in which he shouted to Hillary Clinton, The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.

Tonight is the night. Dodgers vs. Mets. Zack Greinke vs. Jacob deGrom. Winner moves on to the NLCS to take on the Chicago Cubs. If you aren’t going to the game, it starts at 5 p.m. Pacific on TBS. And if you watch it, just ignore Ron Darling. He loves the Mets and might actually cry if they lose.
The stakes are high. If they defeat the New York Mets, they will advance to the NL Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs. If they lose, their season will be over. For starting pitcher Zack Greinke, the game is significant for another reason: It could be his last with the Dodgers.
The other tough choice is catcher. Grandal is injured and hasn’t hit well in the last six weeks. Plus, I just like Ellis better defensively behind the plate. I think he is better at working with the pitchers and making sure they remain calm and in the game. But if I was managing the Dodgers, here’s what I would do: I would pull Greinke aside today and privately ask him which catcher he wants behind the plate. Whoever he picks is the one I would start.
Greinke has declined to speak about his impending decision. While he didn’t reveal any of his plans during a Wednesday conference call, he did reflect on his three seasons in Los Angeles. When he spoke last year about his contract situation, Greinke said what he would do would be based in part on the contracts Max Scherzer and Jon Lester landed.

Minnesota Lynx or Indiana Fever will win the 2015 WNBA Championship. Predicted that Fever would not make it out of the first round of the playoffs, let alone beat the New York Liberty – the overall number one seed – in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Minnesota Lynx will seek their third WNBA title in five seasons on Wednesday night against the Indiana Fever in Minneapolis. Wednesday’s decisive Game 5 will mark the first time since 2009 that the championship series has gone the five-game distance. The league expanded its Finals format from a best-of-three to a best-of-five series in 2005.
Indiana took Games 1 and 4, while Minnesota won Games 2 and 3, with the latter thanks to a buzzer-beater by Maya Moore, who is averaging 22.5 points and 8.8 rebounds through four Finals games against the Fever. Indiana is 5–0 in elimination games in this year’s playoffs, and 9–2 since it captured its lone WNBA title in 2012 against Minnesota.

Lee Selby makes his American debut on Wednesday, as the Welshman defends his IBF featherweight title against Fernando Montiel in Glendale, Arizona. The Barry Boy Assassin (21-1, 8 KOs), who claimed the belt with an impressive win over Evgeny Gradovich in May, faces the experienced Montiel (54-4-2, 39 KOs) at the Gila River Arena.
The Welshman is unbeaten since 2009 and victory over the vastly-experienced Montiel (54-4-2, KO39) could mean a meeting with exciting Mexican Leo Santa Cruz, a fight that would almost certainly see Selby topping the bill outright.
In Round Nine, Selby now taking control, and there are distress signs from Montiel. The Mexican is breathing with his mouth wide open and now, when under pressure, is retreating backwards and just holding up his hands. The willingness to trade may well be seeping out of his 36-year-old body. There’s a nasty clash of heads in the round, which both men felt. Selby up six rounds to three.

The Duke of Cambridge, who was present for the birth of the 8lbs 3oz (3.7kg) baby girl, brought his 21-month-old son Prince George to visit his sister at St Mary’s Hospital, west London. Little Prince George’s adorable wave to the crowd as his dad picked him up has enchanted the world.
But it it’s not the first time the 18-month-old future monarch has addressed his adoring subjects. On the day he was born George moved his hand as his mum the Duchess of Cambridge presented him to the world – and the media dubbed it his first ‘Royal wave’.
A short time ago, to the screams of the adoring public, Prince William carried his gorgeous son up the steps, who delighted the crowd with his cute and touchingly innocent gesture.
The proud father kissed his son on gently on the cheek before taking him to see his little sister, the Princess. Earlier, the Prince left the Duchess of Cambridge to go and pick up his son from Kensington Palace, a short distance from St Mary’s Hospital in West London.
