From the story:He got used to concussions. Bam, hit the ground real hard. I m seeing stars; I can t see straight, he says. But I know in a couple minutes I m gonna be fine. Because I ve done that plenty of times before. In 2012 he told reporters he suffered one against the Vikings. The Lions said (and maintain) that he passed their concussion protocol, and Johnson later apologized: I misused the terms nerve damage and concussion. But he says now, I knew I was concussed because I blacked out. I wasn t seeing straight. And they wanted me to change my story. Mostly, he says, he played through concussions because in his NFL that s how you earn Employee of the Month.
As it so happens, I live pretty close to Morris Animal Refuge. It s a Friday in August. Surely I could sell this as content in order to meet the big cat. I got the okay from Barry. I had already set up a meet and greet with the cat before I even told him the idea, but it was nice to get the reassurance.
A new report, first published by the Miami Herald, claims that the golf course Inter Miami plans to build the new stadium on has dangerous levels of arsenic, barium, and lead in the soil. According to the Herald, a consulting environmental agency hired by the franchise to test the site s soil discovered that the underground contamination is pervasive and, in some places, up to twice the regulatory allowed amount for arsenic. The report also found a variety of debris within the soil at the site, which is covered with ash from an incinerator that was shut down years before. Seems pretty bad The city of Miami is calling for another round of testing, also to be paid for by the team, but as it stands now, the golf course is unsafe for Inter Miami s plans. That puts the future of the stadium site in jeopardy; Miami mayor Francis Suarez says cleaning up the site could cost upwards of $50 million before any construction can begin. Prior to Monday s findings, the club expected to spend about $35 million to clean up the site for the proposed $1 billion commercial and stadium complex.
First, the club set the table by announcing the signing of winger Jack Clarke from Leeds United (where he will spend next year on loan). It s probably a decent enough move, but it s not one that moves the needle the way their other new transfer will. The big news came when Tottenham announced the signing of Tanguy Ndombele from Olympique Lyon for a club record 62 million.
For wrestling fans, those two names carry literal decades of weight. Heyman was the mastermind of Extreme Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s, which was the third party in the Monday Night Wars between the then WWF and World Championship Wrestling. Bischoff was the creative force behind WCW during the Attitude Era, and the architect of one of the most successful gimmicks of all time: the New World Order.
Grunewald walked onto the University of Minnesota track team and improved throughout her collegiate career. The day before a race during her senior season, Grunewald got the news that she had adenoid cystic carcinoma, a cancer of the salivary glands that affects roughly 1,000 people per year. Grunewald set a personal record in the 1,500 the next day. She was granted an extra year of eligibility, and despite enduring surgery and radiation treatment, she returned stronger than ever, finishing in second place in the 1,500 meters at the 2010 NCAA national championships.
Unfortunately, aliens are either not real or are big fraidy cats who don t want to step to us, and so no such challenge has been proposed. However, the 2019 Women s World Cup, which will be held in France and kicks off this Friday, will offer the French woman s national soccer team the opportunity to prove without a shadow of doubt France s intraplanetary supremacy.The case for France being the class of both the men s and women s game is already persuasive. From the men s side, the justification is clear. Last summer, the Frenchies won the World Cup in convincing fashion. Two years prior, France finished runners up in the 2016 Euros. On top of those international tournament performances, France has been an unstinting geyser of talent of all sorts and at all positions, the likes of which no other country can match at the moment. (Paris and its surrounding suburbs are particularly rich in talent; an all Paris starting XI could very well contend for the World Cup by itself.) Spain and Germany had their runs as soccer s ascendant powers during the past decade or so, but now is France s time.
Here s video of the strip tease, in which a woman seemingly dressed as Catwoman slinks into the room and proceeds to prance around while slowly disrobing, playing more to the camera than the sheepish players in the audience, most of whom seem more embarrassed than titillated:
How that all works out after Double or Nothing is not something I will pretend to know at this point, but I would like to put you up on a fascinating curiosity of a match somewhere on that event s mid card. That would be the six woman tag match featuring Aja Kong, Yuka Sakazaki, and Emi Sakura facing off against Hikaru Shida, Riho, Ryo Mizunami, all of whom will be fighting in the style of women s wrestling that peaked in Japan almost thirty years ago. It should be fun on its own merits, but it s significant because it will introduce or re introduce, depending on your wrestling literacy joshi puroresu wrestling to a more mainstream American audience.First, some definitions. Puroresu wrestling is Japan s premier wrestling style, characterized by strong style striking essentially, wrestlers pull their punches less in Japan than they do in, say, WWE, which lends the whole endeavor a more realistic fight feel and storylines that tend to be less ridiculously theatrical than American pro wrestling. By extension of that, joshi puroresu (joshi for short) is the women s version of that style, as Japanese promotions do not (usually) feature both men s and women s matches.
Get ready to see the best hidden ball trick of all time. A tip of the cap to the crew at Deadspin for referencing the inspiration for the maneuver.
It has long been known that Donald Trump cheats at golf. Not a little, either, but cheats with exactly the same degree of oafish balls out shamelessness that he does everything else. Stories about this have circulated for a long time, to the point where they have taken on a sort of Mad Libs quality. Who can forget the time that Trump threw kicked coaxed a ball struck by prominent sportscaster longtime Days Of Our Lives cast member thrice divorced Florida chiropractor into a sand trap a water hazard a nearby alligator s open mouth ? Try it yourself and enjoy a moment of outrage at Trump cheating egregiously so as to avoid losing a hole to David Charvet in match play.There are enough of these stories out there that semi retired journalist Rick Reilly was able to round them up into an entire book called Commander In Cheat. In promoting that book, Reilly has avowed that he remains a non political person who was moved to write not by Trump s broader grotesquerie but by the offenses that the president has visited upon the noble game of golf over his decades of relentless cheesy chiseling cheating. To the extent that receipts are necessary to prove something that everyone already knows to be true, Reilly seems to have them.
a. Trial juries being sworn in each case; b. The cases resolving by plea agreement;
Vieira discussed the specifics of the incident in an interview with Brazilian paper Folha de S o Paulo. When she first saw the man, who has since been identified as 27 year old Josinei Ferreira, she didn t register what he was doing. Upon closer inspection, she noticed that his swim trunks were pulled down.
Cactus linked up with the race after Sunday s opening 20 mile stage, sticking around for the next four stages and 120 miles of running. The Marathon des Sables is a famously difficult race, where competitors have to run an average of 23.5 miles per day for five days straight through the sand, sun, and wind of the unforgiving Sahara of southern Morocco. It s not the sort of thing anyone does primarily for fun, excepting of course Cactus, who seemed to enjoy his time with the race.
It is a stretch to say that the book represents any sort of political awakening on Reilly s part; while Reilly seems shocked and dismayed by the authentically shocking and dismaying stuff that Trump has done, noticing that it s disgusting to lock children in cages doesn t necessarily bespeak the birth of a revolutionary political consciousness. Curtis notes that Reilly follows both Krassenstein brothers on Twitter, which is objectively a terrible thing to write about anyone but which also seems more like a sign of where Reilly is in his life comfortably into The Paddleboard Years, and comfortable enough in that stage to enjoy periodically puncturing his bulletproof leisure with reminders that stupid and preventable catastrophes are happening, somewhere far away.But it doesn t feel quite right that Reilly, who seemed deeply and almost heroically unmotivated during the last years before his retirement, would have been moved to write an entire book because he was incensed by the many ways Trump has just barfed on the great game of golf. Even if Reilly did intend the book solely as a compendium of anecdotes about Donald Trump cheating and being childish and howlingly, brutally oafish at golf, it couldn t help but wind up leading into the bigger points that he disclaims. At some point, a book about the President of the United States being a weird asshole who lies constantly about trivial things can t help but be about how the President of the United States is a weird asshole who lies constantly about trivial things.
The alleged incident took place on Feb. 14, 2017, in the parking lot of the school as the teacher was walking to her classroom. As detailed in the restraining order, Bibby allegedly called her over to his car, grabbed her by the hips, pushed her into the driver s seat, and got on top of her, rubbing his own body and genitals on her, telling her, What I could do to you. The teacher wrote in the restraining order that she was in shock, in fear, intimidated by his actions, afraid of him as he smelled of alcohol. The order also states that at least two other staff members witnessed the event.School district spokeswoman Becky Kelbaugh confirmed that there had been an internal investigation into allegations before Phoenix PD informed them of the incident earlier this month:
Even Beal knew his four step no call was a gift:
The incident with the dick pic arose when Hardy or Big Alan as he likes to be known was attempting to expose some hypocrisy on the part of an outspoken internet detractor of his. Hardy posted two screenshots of two different messages from FA Player Intermediary Aron Greaves: one a friendly text message that wished Hardy a Merry Christmas, the other a foul mouthed tweet in which Greaves called Henry everything but a child of God. Unbeknownst to him, Hardy s screenshot of Greaves s tweet included photos from Hardy s camera roll at the bottom; one photo in the roll was Hardy s cock shot.
There s sometimes a smirk or raised eyebrow. And it s often coupled with a sly, dry barb launched at a reporter or aimed at a teammate.Take Week 14, when a reporter asked, innocuously enough, how would the Rams quarterback prepare to play a defense that had intercepted a league high 21 passes?
A Deadspin article titled Conservative Gays Need to Shut the Fuck Up popped up in my Twitter timeline and promptly broke the Internet. The author, Lauren Theisen, sent a message that quickly went viral: The article was meant as an attack on Chad Felix Greene, a writer for The Federalist, who recently penned a piece arguing that his experiences coming out as a conservative were actually more difficult than coming out as gay due to progressive intolerance.
