  • Hassan Whiteside discovers what happens when you leave a $50K assault rifle in an unlocked car

    Here’s a Friday hypothetical for you: Let’s say you purchase something that costs $50,000. Not a car or a boat or anything sizable like that, but rather something that’s portable. A nice piece of jewelry, perhaps. What’s the first thing you do with it when you’re not using it? You lock it up, right? Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside did not lock it up, and it wasn’t a $50,000 piece of jewelry. Rather, he had a just-purchased Colt M16 assault rifle stolen from his unlocked Rolls-Royce in July. Andy Slater of 640 AM in Miami has the scoop after reviewing...

    Division 3 College basketball, Massachusetts, Fitchburg State vs. Nichols College: Fitchburg State - Kewan Platt, perp Nichols College - Nate Tenaglia, victim Defender Kewan Platt trotting up to Nichols College Nate Tenaglia, then attempting a 3-pointer: Defender does quick head check to the ref, the better to make sure his action goes unseen. Defender throws a quick, sharp elbow to the face, man collapses to the floor. My understanding is the defender has been indefinately suspended and barred from campus. The brief twitter vid of the incident is pretty impressive, I've only seen one hockey cheap shot meaner than this...
  • NFL Moves Mexico City Game to Los Angeles, Northern Mexico

    RUSH: Speaking of Mexico City and all that, have you seen the NFL move? There was a big Monday night game in Mexico City. The Chiefs and the Rams. And, folks, this is the strangest thing. The NFL has known for a year — well, no. The schedule came out in the spring, but before the schedule comes out, they scheduled this game. I mean, it has to be almost a year, certainly nine months the National Football League has known that they were going to play a game at Estadio Azteca, Aztec stadium, Mexico City. They’ve known this for...

    NFL cancels Mexico City trip, moves Chiefs-Rams game to Los Angeles The NFL has decided to move Monday's game between the Chiefs and Rams from Mexico City to Los Angeles because of poor field conditions at Estadio Azteca, it was announced Tuesday. Players had strongly considered not playing if the NFL had opted to keep the game in Mexico City, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter earlier Tuesday. The issue is that soccer games and concerts have left the field inside Estadio Azteca a mess. "It's not fair to risk our health," a prominent player told Schefter on Tuesday. . ....
  • Ohio University considers minorities-only gym: report

    Editor’s note: After this article was published and was linked on the Drudge Report, Ohio University spokesman Jim Sabin contacted The College Fix and denied the school is considering a gym room for students of color. Asked about Ohio University’s own student news report on the matter (screenshot above), school officials contacted The New Political and also asked its student reporters to amend their 6-day-old report on the matter. The student news outlet now reports the workout room for minorities would also be open to all students. This article has been amended accordingly. Also, the school is public, not private.

    The Redskins are having one of the best seasons in recent history.Despite their performance this season, however, there is one thing that will never change: The controversy over the Redskins’ logo and name.The logo of the Redskins has weathered many seasons of controversy. But there have been renewed calls for the logo to get the politically correct tomahawk in recent years. Some of the biggest names in politics have come out against the symbol of a proud, stoic-looking Native American and his feathers.In 2015, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid proclaimed in a speech from the Senate floor, “The Redskins name...

    For decades, Paul Zimmerman was Sports Illustrated’s “Dr. Z,” the analytical and opinionated football guru who penned erudite and insightful columns, picked games, wrote mock drafts, knew everybody and was known by everybody. But before Zimmerman worked his word magic for SI, he did so for The Post from 1966-1979 — covering the Jets, writing general sports columns with an emphasis on the NFL and becoming an early pioneer of in-depth analysis using the then-new technology of videotape. He even wrote a wine column.

    On immigrationWith an army of people marching toward the U.S. from Central America, let’s remember there was a huge controversy in America because the Trump administration was separating children from their parents and holding them after they illegally entered the country. A court order stated that children can be held for no more than 20 days after crossing the border. This came from a 1997 case -- Flores v. Reno (as in Attorney General Janet Reno). Some of us were called heartless and worse because we sought to put at least some of the blame on parents who traversed a...

    Curt Schilling is a central player in the story of the 2004 Boston Red Sox. His bloody sock game in Game 6 of the American League Championship series that saw the Red Sox rally from a 3-0 deficit against the New York Yankees en route to their first World Series title in 86 years is the stuff of baseball lore. Schilling is also a pariah in large circles. The former Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Red Sox great has chosen to spend his retirement years espousing radical, sometimes racist political opinions.

With the Eagles preparing to take on the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars, Jenkins said that he thinks Kaepernick deserves to have a quarterback job in the NFL, and that the play of the Jaguars is proof of that.

    What a difference a week can make for the Kansas City Chiefs and what a difference it can make for Sunday Night Football too. Last week, the then unbeaten Chiefs came up short against their likely AFC title rivals the New England Patriots, with the Tom Brady-led crew scratching out a 43-40 win and rising ratings. Last night, the Chiefs took on and took down the Cincinnati Bengals 45-10. Snaring the Chiefs’ sixth win of the season so far, a jaw-dropping part of last night’s came from running back Kareem Hunt who was literally up, up and away with multiple...

    Don’t look for Amy Schumer in any Super Bowl LIII commercials this time around. She’s sitting this one out as she stands with Colin Kaepernick and his take-a-knee protest against racism and police brutality. The comedian and “I Feel Pretty” actress explained her stance at length Friday on Instagram, challenging white NFL players to kneel as well. Addressing them directly, she wrote: “Otherwise how are you not complicit?”

    A white woman called the cops on a black father at his child’s soccer game — claiming he yelled at the referee, when he was actually just cheering on his son, according to local reports. Two other women who were at the teen match in Ponte Vedro, Fla., over the weekend took videos and posted about the incident on Facebook — uploading images of the field marshal who called the police, showing her sitting in a blue golfcart with a phone to her ear and nicknaming her “Golfcart Gail.” “A parent at my son’s soccer game had the police called...
