    In Fair Haven, Vermont voters have elected a goat named “Lincoln” mayor. In an attempt to explain the unusual outcome, Town Manager Joseph Gunter said he was unsure, but offered some possible motivations. “On the one hand, the goat’s name may have played a part in the decision. Lincoln was one of this nation’s greatest leaders. Perhaps the name alone inspired confidence.” “On the other hand, voters have elected and reelected Bernie Sanders to the US Senate,” Gunter observed. “So, odd choices by the electorate are not entirely unknown in our state. At least the goat hasn’t proposed any crazy...

    <p>The photograph, published last week in Pakistani newspapers, was stunning. It showed a magnificent mountain goat, with huge, symmetrically spiral horns, nestled on a rock and surrounded by breathtaking snowy mountains, with a man kneeling and smiling behind it.</p> <p>It took a few seconds to realize that the animal, a wild Astore markhor, was dead. The caption described the man as an American hunter who had paid a record $110,000 to shoot it on a tourist expedition to Pakistan’s northern Himalayan region of Gilgit-Baltistan.</p>

    BOSTON —Six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady spoke about how his wife Gisele Bundchen has used some unusual ways to keep luck on her husband's side.... "I've learned a lot from my wife over the years," Brady said while laying down in a barber's chair. "She's about the power of intention, believing that things are really going to happen." Brady said Bundchen put together a little altar for him that he could bring with pictures of his kids.... I have these little special stones, healing stones, protection stones and she has me wear a necklace, take these drops she makes,...

    The 13-3 win for the New England Patriots over the Los Angeles Rams last night wasn’t the most exciting Super Bowl ever played by any measure, but the 2019 big NFL game was sure one for the history books. First of all, in the Patriots’ third consecutive visit to Super Bowl, the match-up in Atlanta on Sunday was the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever, a dubious honor at best. The record was previously held by Super Bowl VII, which saw the Miami Dolphins best the Washington Redskins 14-7 on January 14, 1973. Secondly, Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is now the...

    FULL HEADER: "Maroon 5 frontman hints Superbowl show will be hip-hop kneeling fest. Fox News offers alternative for halftime." Proud, flag-loving patriots who hate seeing the American flag be disrespected may have no other option but to tune out of the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. The show has been mired in controversy because of a concerted effort by radical far-left activists to stop any artist from performing at the event. To them, any performance would be a slap in the face to unemployed former NFL quarterback and continued race-baiting agitator Colin Kaepernick. Thankfully, some artists resisted the pressure and...

    As the nation’s highest-rated television program, the Super Bowl offers advertisers the opportunity to define (or re-define) themselves for the public in a way that no other venue can provide. A memorable commercial will be discussed among friends at Super Bowl parties today, and at the office water cooler tomorrow. That’s why companies are willing to pay $5 million for half a minute. Many companies take the opportunity to associate themselves with themes and values cherished by current and potential customers. The label “virtue-signaling” is usually used by me in a negative fashion when companies and people embrace the shibboleths...

    ...[He's] given Jim Nantz, who’s been at the network since 1985, a new energy, a new vigor. “I’ve heard a lot of people say that,” Nantz told me this week. “It’s probably true. … I definitely feel like I’m trying to match up with Tony’s enthusiasm.” “I gotta be honest,” said Tracy Wolfson, the crew’s sideline reporter. “I felt reinvigorated going down the stretch of the season.” Romo’s not just an announcer. He’s an energy drink. It’s not just Romo’s thirst for football that has changed the CBS crew. As Wolfson notes, Romo’s hiring allowed a rare reset for a...

    Well, here it is, Super Bowl Sunday. I know a lot of you don’t care. Even so, you might care about CNN’s ace reporter on all forms of racial/gendered bias (Don the Lemon) grilling of Gladys Knight on why she is being a disloyal black b***h by singing the National Anthem at the start of the game. Um, because she’s a singer and that’s what she does? Little Don came to within a hair’s breadth of coming right out and accusing her of being whatever the proper gender-neutral term for “house slave” is. As always, Ms. Knight was classier by half:...

    Their star quarterback, coach, and owner all supported Trump. But that’s not the only thing that makes the Super Bowl LIII-bound Patriots the preferred team of white nationalists.This past weekend, the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots held a rally for their sweatiest fans at Gillette Stadium. Brady gave a speech. It ended… unnervingly. WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed...

    WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES - The unusual creature was born by cesarean section on a farm in the Philippines earlier this month but locals are worried it's a cursed 'mutant devil' A farmer was left shocked after his goat gave birth to a ‘half-pig half-human' creature.

Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went into labour earlier this month on November 2 at the small farm in Sultan Kudarat, the Philippines. The two babies...

    ended on a West Boise neighborhood on Friday morning. Residents of an Idaho suburb woke up Friday morning to a sight that really got their goat. An invading herd of more than 100 goats rampaged through the neighborhood of West Boise, devouring flowerbeds, grass and leaves as they moved from yard to yard on Friday morning, NBC affiliate KTVB reported. Representatives of the company that owns the animals, We Rent Goats, arrived at the scene and managed to herd the goats onto a truck around 9 a.m., less than two hours after the initial calls were fielded by Animal Control...
  • Goat Spends Years Evading Police Around Kentucky Highway

    A goat that has been evading Kentucky police for years has become like a "pet" to area construction workers, one worker said. Police in Hardin County said the goat was dubbed "Houdini" by locals because it always manages to escape before officers can show up to capture it. The goat is most frequently seen around Interstate 65, and witnesses said he's been on the loose for years. "We would call animal control and state police, and every time they'd come to get him, he's gone," construction worker Peggy Gross told WAVE-TV. "Houdini -- the I-65 Goat. He's our pet out...

    The recently released batch of text message exchanges between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal the partisan FBI agents criticized Chelsea Clinton in harsh and personal terms. Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for sending anti-Trump texts, criticized Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Committee convention in late July. “Chelsea was awful. Tried to do Bills up close sharing. Didn’t come across as genuine. Plus, she has a HORRIBLE billv goat speech tic,” Strzok wrote in a text to Page — his mistress and FBI colleague on the investigation at the time. The insulting characterization...

    Tom Brady comes off, well, slightly deranged in the lengthy ESPN feature piece about the Patriots quarterback and his “TB12 Method.” Bill Simmons likely sums up the reaction from Patriots fans after ESPN led the way in Deflategate reporting — including a crucial one that turned out to be false — that ended in Brady’s four-game suspension.
