  • My Super Bowl Party that ended up uniting the Conservatives/Republicans attending (vanity)

    02/08/2016 12:13:09 AM PST · by MacMattico · 24 replies
    Each year for the past 20 we host a Super Bowl party and we invite the usual group of friends and family and allow our friends and family to bring others as long as they tell me in advance so I have enough food and drink available. This year we had an interesting mix. Before kickoff one guy said he wished they could find a way Obama could run again, and that Obama was one of the best Presidents we've ever had. My husband quickly stuffed a crab puff in my mouth, in an attempt to keep the peace. But...

    Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch has made $49.7 million in nine NFL seasons — and has saved all of it. In a recent segment for "The Ian & Puck Show" on 950 AM KJR in Seattle, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network was discussing recent rumblings that Lynch might retire and dropped an interesting tidbit about Lynch's thriftiness. "Marshawn Lynch has a lot of money," Rapoport said. "He hasn't spent a dime of his actual playing money ... ever."

    I grew up in the kind of neighborhood where I could walk with my football to the field near my house, kick the ball around a few times, and - within minutes - my friends would be pouring out of their homes ready to play for hours on end. Those were some of the greatest times of my life. On that field, a skinny, nerdy kid who was more comfortable with graph paper and 12- and 20-sided dice could learn how to take a hit and - just as important - how to deliver one. I gained confidence, I was...

    As a pediatric neurosurgeon at the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Sam Browd brought a swift end to the early athletic careers of innumerable youths across a myriad of sports due to concussions. Browd’s experience prematurely “retiring” children from athletics—most notably football—and the countless emotional conversations with parents made him question what could be done to address head injuries suffered by children while playing sports. In 2013, Browd, an associate professor of neurological surgery at the University of Washington, connected with Dave Marver and Per Reinhall—both of whom also had ties to the Seattle-based university and backgrounds in medical technology and mechanical...

In the stands, tens of thousands of Roman citizens waited with half-bored curiosity to see what would happen next and whether it would be interesting enough to...

    In a way, that sounds like a strange question, because football has never had a lack of fans. Last year's Super Bowl, for example, was a ratings bonanza for NBC, with some 114.5 million viewers -- climbing to 120.8 million during the final minutes -- making it the most viewed television program in U.S. history. Next year, network television looks set to grow the NFL juggernaut further, with NBC and CBS brokering a deal earlier this week rumored to be in the $450 million range to split the Thursday night prime-time games package. So the problem, right now at least,...

Even more impressive is that Curry accomplished this feat relatively quickly — he played just 36 minutes and dumped in 25 points in the first quarter alone. The climax of his game-opening explosion came on a broken play off an inbounds that Curry turned into another dazzling highlight. After a Draymond Green layup, the Wizards inbounded the ball quickly to try to push the pace. As they got the ball...

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Denver may be closer to San Francisco than Charlotte, but there is no home field advantage in the Super Bowl. It's a good thing that the Levi's Stadium grounds crew has two weeks to prepare for the Feb. 7 contest, because it goofed on its end zone paint jobs over the weekend. Multiple reporters and media outlets snapped pictures of the snafu, which featured the Denver Broncos logo and team name painted in both end zones. One of those end zones belongs to the Carolina Panthers. Luckily, the grounds crew eventually caught the...

The report says that Johnson told his family and close friends that the 2015 season would be his final one in the NFL, reiterating the message to Lions head coach Jim Caldwell the day after the regular season was over.

    I think that a lot of Democrats don't understand what it is that Hillary has done wrong. Most Democrats don't have experience handling secret material. Most Democrats are not experts about computers or networks. They do know what Anne-mail is, but they see it in the context of what they know. They get e-mails. Hillary got e-mails. So what? Remember, they have no experience in dealing with communications security. Let's say LeBron James gets mad at an opposing player and hits him in the mouth in a game. That would be an intentional flagrant foul. LeBron would be penalized. He...

    We may have a future Olympian on our hands – at least that’s what her parents are hoping for. Sloan Henderson, a 14-month-old from North Salt Lake, Utah, is learning to shred some slopes. Her father, Zach Henderson, recorded Sloan’s first snowboarding attempt at Park City Mountain Resort on Thursday and shared the video on YouTube. She was a natural. “Yes, Sloan. You’re cruising, babe,” Henderson said in the video. “You’re a boarder.” Henderson and his wife, Katie, both snowboarders, agreed that, as soon as Sloan could walk, they would see how their daughter fared on the snow. The couple...
