Why The Water Cooler?
I chose The Water Cooler because it’s the perfect combination of entertainment news and sports! We analyze trending sports headlines and athletes’ moves while also throwing in fun segments like Hot Takes or putting The Water Cooler members through the NFL Combine! At the Cooler, we’re always down for a good laugh.
