    As if having your team lose to the lowly Buffalo Bills isn't enough, one New York Jets fan's day got even worse on Sunday after he rear-ended a car, failed a sobriety test and had an open bottle of whiskey and suspected marijuana in his car, police said. His reason for his brush with the law was simple. "I drank too much because the Jets suck," Christopher Greyshock, 57, of West Milford, told police during his sobriety test, according to a release from the Wayne Police. Officers there were called to the corner of Alps Road and Route 23 at...
  • 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...

    The air around Davis should be clear right about now, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of bored students with no classes to attend and plenty of loose rubble to throw at the skies. According to a Facebook event posting, a horde large enough to fill the Chem 194 lecture hall several times over was planning to "Throw rocks at the smoke to make it go away". "Alright comrades! Class was cancelled but let's still throw some rocks! Throughout the day, when you get a chance, just pick one up and throw it north and slightly east!" read a Facebook...

    Two divers in New Zealand found themselves face-to-face with a strange 26-foot worm-like sea creature recently. Caters reports that the hollow, wind-sock-like creature was found by friends Steve Hathaway and Andrew Buttle, who were diving off the coast of Whakaari, a stratovolcano on New Zealand’s White Island. In the video, the pulsating and shuddering worm can be seen changing shape as it moves slowly through the water. The strange creature has been identified as a Pyrosome, a bioluminescent mass made up of hundreds of thousands of organisms that feed on plankton. Pyrosomes are actually colonies made up of individual pyrosome...

Harlem resident Robert Bailey, 67, has been”faithfully” playing the same numbers for 25 years, ever since a family member gave them to him, he said. The day of the drawing, Oct. 27, Cailey said he checked his ticket online — and was in shock.

    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. . ....

    Actress Jada Pinkett Smith revealed Monday that white women with blond hair trigger deep-seated prejudices in her that she’s carried since she was a child. The “Girls Trip” star said on the new episode of her Facebook chat show, “Red Table Talk,” that she’s had to keep herself in check when it comes to judging white women, acknowledging that they share the oppression she’s also experienced because of their gender. “White women understand what it feels to be oppressed … because of their sex,” Mrs. Pinkett Smith said. “What it feels to be ostracized or not being treated as an...
