    When it comes to Super Bowl LIII, air traffic controllers are flying blind. The government shutdown has already resulted in canceled planning meetings for the Feb. 3 game in Atlanta, and if the federal budget impasse continues, airport screeners and flight controllers at the busiest airport in the world will be working on game day for no pay. Dan McCabe, a National Air Traffic Controllers Association representative, told NBC News that his colleagues had been holding meetings over the past year to prepare for the surge in travelers to the area. But now the planning meetings, which included officials from...
  • Tom Brady is an underdog for first time since 2014

    The Patriots were favored in every game this season and postseason. They were favored in every game in 2017, regular season and postseason. They were favored in every game in 2016 except two games during Tom Brady‘s Deflategate suspension. And they were never an underdog in 2015. But they’re not favored now. New England is a 3-point underdog at Kansas City on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game, and that makes this the first time since 2014 that Tom Brady has played a game in which he was the underdog

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett was caught confronting a cameraman as he was walking off the field at the end of the team’s loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Video captured Bennett walking off the field and getting in the face of a CBS Philadelphia cameraman. It wasn’t immediately clear why Bennett was yelling at the cameraman.

    But the gesture — which seemed to entertain the Clemson team — didn’t sit well with Bush, who took to Twitter on the subject around midnight, saying Trump should’ve done more for the team. “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, @ClemsonFB you guys deserve better you are world champs and this is the honor you receive from our nations leader!?” he tweeted. “This is disrespectful on so many levels, just a huge slap in the face after that kind of performance! SMH!”

    Kansas City Chiefs guard Jeff Allen has tracked down a homeless good Samaritan who helped him dig his car out of the snow before Saturday’s playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. Dave Cochran told NBC affiliate 41 Action News that he had no idea Allen was an NFL player when he offered to help, but that it wouldn’t have made a difference anyway. “I just looked at him like a normal person,” Cochran said. “I would hope that he would do the same for me as I did for him.”
  • Tim Tebow's Engagement Draws Insulting Media Responses

    01/12/2019 11:48:04 AM PST · by Kaslin · 87 replies ^ | January 12, 2019 | Jay Maxon
    This week's engagement of Tim Tebow demonstrated how judgmental media continue dismissing male behavior at both ends of the spectrum. Respectable Christian role models like Vice-President Mike Pence and Tim Tebow are often insulted for upholding honorable standards, right along with the disgraced abusers who spawned the #MeToo movement. While some media responded politely, Tebow's recent engagement also sparked another round of personal attacks by biased media who deem him "polarizing." None more so than from Deadspin's Tom Ley. Ley's story on Tebow, who has chosen to remain celibate until marriage, is crassly headlined: "Tim Tebow to have sex soon."...

    Growing up outside Atlanta, Stephen Weatherly says around 95% of his knowledge of African-American history was learned at home, from his mom and grandmother. One lesson about his own race’s history in America that still sticks with the Vikings defensive end came from watching Roots, the television miniseries based on the story of Kunta Kinte, a Gambian man who was sold to an American slave owner. Weatherly was in middle school when he watched with his mom; she was the one who explained to him the meaning behind the famous scene in which Kunta Kinte is tied up to a...

    The Hong Kong Standard ^ | 11 Jan 2019 | Nury Vittachi
    Grumbles about the new national anthem laws filled bars, noodle shops and chatrooms in Hong Kong yesterday. But most comments showed how little people know about it. (sic) Since the international licensing conference is running this week in Hong Kong, I wonder if a visiting expert can tell us how to sell March of the Volunteers to US President Donald Trump? The song's opening lines seem perfect for him: "Rise up, you who refuse to be slaves. Using your flesh and blood, let us build a new great wall."

    Washington Examiner ^ | Janaury 6, 2019 | Byron York |
    Newly sworn-in Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib electrified progressives with her passionate declaration that she and her colleagues will " impeach the mother******" — the "mother*****," of course, being President Trump. Democratic leaders were embarrassed that a high-profile freshman would speak so frankly in public. But hours before Tlaib spoke, on the first day of Democratic control of the House, another Democrat, Rep. Brad Sherman, filed a resolution of impeachment. Sherman's resolution was later co-sponsored by another colleague, Democratic Rep. Al Green. The efforts by Sherman and Green, who filed his own articles in 2017, and another House Democrat, Rep. Steve...

    The Arizona Cardinals are set to hire Kliff Kingsbury as their new head coach, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports. In December, Kingsbury was named offensive coordinator at the University of Southern California after being fired from his head-coaching role at Texas Tech. Following the conclusion of the NFL regular season, the Cardinals and New York Jets had expressed interest in hiring Kingsbury for their head-coaching vacancies. However, the Trojans reportedly did not initially grant Kingsbury permission to interview with either club. He went on to eventually meet with both teams.

    Former NFL player Burgess Owens said socialism and Marxism are pushing an “anti-white” and “anti-American” agenda that’s hurting the black community. Burgess was discussing the NFL’s ratings boost as national anthem protests begin to fade and said America is fighting for its soul. ... “The biggest takeaway from the last two years — we are in the fight for the heart and soul of our nation,” Burgess said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “We are fighting for our American, Judeo-Christian values and we’re fighting against a very evil force of socialism and Marxism that destroy everything they come close to....

    The Cincinnati Bengals are looking for a new head coach for the first time in 16 years. At one of his final news conferences, now-former head coach Marvin Lewis endorsed just one man as his replacement: former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson, who joined the Bengals staff after the Browns fired him in October. Jackson racked up a 3-36-1 record over three seasons, but Lewis had nothing but positive things to say about his old friend Hue. On the heels of Lewis’ glowing endorsement comes this news from’s Ian Rapoport: Hue Jackson may be interviewed by the Bengals...

    Tom Brady bet on himself this season and lost big. As part of a series of team-friendly deals the three-time MVP has taken from the Patriots, Brady had $5 million in performance bonuses built into his contract for 2018, and he will receive exactly none of that money. Brady was in line to receive $1 million for finishing in the top five in the league in each of passer rating, completion percentage, yards per attempt, touchdown passes and passing yards, according to contract data from He failed to accomplish any of those.
