    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?”

  • There Is Nothing Liberalism Won’t Ruin

    In a perverse way, it’s a skill, really. Just not a skill anyone would want. A reverse Midas touch; a jinx, if you will. Whatever you want to call it, liberals have an incredible ability ruin everything, and they’re on the job 24/7. Remember when you could watch a TV show or go to the movies and not have to be bombarded with left-wing political messages, either blatant or subtle? When you were entertained by entertainment and you went to church if you wanted to be preached to. That’s not the case anymore. The “progressive” church is politics, political correctness...
  • New Orleans only city vying for Super Bowl 2024 at NFL owners meetings on Wednesday

    New Orleans could once again become the home for the Super Bowl on Wednesday afternoon (May 23). That's when the city's contingent, led by the New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, will present a proposal to the NFL team owners to host the 2024 Super Bowl (58), according to the Saints and the GNOSF. New Orleans will be the only suitor for the 2024 Super Bowl at the league owners meetings, making its chances of landing the NFL's crowning event highly probable. The vote by the 31 other teams is expected to occur shortly after the...

    On January 15, 1967, Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception as the Packers rolled over the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in the first AFL-NFL World Championship game (which would later become known as Super Bowl I). For his efforts, Starr was named the game's MVP and was awarded a shiny new 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible. That Corvette is now going up for auction. The car is documented with a tank sticker that says "Courtesy Delivery - B. Starr." It presents with its original and...

    If recent trends continue, it’ll only get worse. ... NBC* paid $963 million for the rights to air the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, a 24 percent jump over the $775 million it paid for the last Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. ... Viewership declines aren’t really surprising, as similar trends have unfolded across the TV landscape and viewers opt for on-demand and online entertainment alternatives. Even football and the Super Bowl — considered the last holdouts where advertisers could guarantee huge live audiences would be watching — are not immune.

    On Sunday, I attended the Super Bowl, along with my father, my business partner and the president of our company. It was an amazing event. That wasn't just because the game was terrific -- although it was. It was because for all the competitive fire, for all the passion and excitement, one feeling permeated the stadium in the freezing wilds of Minnesota: love. Yes, love. The people in the stadium may have hated the other team, but they didn't hate one another. Patriots fans sat next to Eagles fans, and everybody got along; we all shouted ourselves hoarse when the...
  • NFL runs 'equal pay' Super Bowl ad while rejecting vets ad to stand for anthem

    Last month, the NFL rejected an ad from AMVETS asking everyone to stand for the national anthem. They called the ad too "political" to run. But the league approved another ad that was blatantly political. T-Mobile's ad made a plea for "fair and equal pay" - a fraught political issue that means many things to many people. Why they ran the T-Mobile ad and not the AMVETS ad is a question many are asking. Washington Times: The T-Mobile spot features narrator Kerry Washington telling a group of babies, “Some people may see your differences and be threatened by them, but...

    Boy found wandering outside Bunnell sports barRobert and Kristal Valenti spent several hours inside a Bunnell sports bar Sunday night drinking and watching the Super Bowl while their 6-year-old son wandered around outside unattended and unsupervised, police reports state. Flagler County sheriff’s deputies arrested Robert, 42, and Kristal Valenti, 38, and charged both of them with child neglect. They remained jailed Monday afternoon on $2,500 bail apiece. According to a Sheriff’s Office report, some patrons at Beer House, 616 N. State Street, grew concerned for the couple’s elementary-aged boy when they noticed him running around near the front entrance outside...

  • Did God Help the Eagles Win the Super Bowl?

    02/06/2018 8:59:20 AM PST · by Kaslin · 51 replies ^ | February 6, 2018 | Michael Brown
    I was once heard the story of a father and son who were watching a boxing match. When the fight started, one of the boxers crossed himself, prompting the son to ask, “Dad, will that help him win the fight?” The father responded, “Only if he can punch.” And that begs the question: Does God really get involved in sports events? Does He care who wins a boxing match – or football game? On the one hand, you could argue that God is sovereign, and if He knows the number of hairs on our head, and not one bird falls...

    Less than 24 hours after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy into the air in Minneapolis, the total number of Philadelphia Eagles players who said they won’t visit the White House if the team is invited for the ceremonial championship visit rose to three. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins— a prominent voice the past two seasons in NFL player protests of police brutality and social injustice— told CNN Monday that he will not attend the White House if President Donald Trump was to extend the invitation.

    So what did you do? If you had a moment of weakness and watched the game, you can also confess here. My family? We ordered Out Back takeout and relaxed at home. Since we have never watched “Ash Versus Evil Dead” we started binge watching Season 1. It’s a hoot and the actor (Bruce Campbell) who plays the lead character bears an uncanny resemblance to Mitt Romney.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Activists protesting police brutality chained themselves along a light-rail line carrying ticketholders to the Super Bowl on Sunday, halting trains in both directions. Metro Transit’s Green Line was shut down a little after 2 p.m., about three hours before kickoff, by a group of about 30 activists at the Stadium Village station. Transit spokesman Howie Padilla said the agency had a contingency plan to get ticketholders to the game on time. Chinyere Tutashinda, a spokeswoman for the activists, said they were also protesting authorities’ decision to dedicate the city’s two light-rail lines to Super Bowl ticketholders on...
