    The Federalist ^ | September 30, 2014 | Ben Domenech
    Last night on Monday Night Football, the ESPN crew couldn’t stop praising the loud, engaged home crowd at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium. They opened the game with a ceremony where running back Christian Okoye, “The Nigerian Nightmare”, pounded on a giant drum as tens of thousands of Chiefs fans cheered on. The crowd, many of whom wore feathers and American Indian-themed garb, chanted and did the Tomahawk Chop. They were so loud that, if you believe these measures, they set the new Guinness World record for loudest crowd roar, surpassing the Seahawks. It was a pretty awesome (in...

    Did the referees cross the line? Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah came up with a big play during Monday night's win over the New England Patriots, as he intercepted a Tom Brady pass and took it to the house for a touchdown. However, once he reached the end zone, Abdullah dropped to his knees and did this ["pray"]: Abdullah is a practicing Muslim and it's common for people of that faith to pray from their knees. However, this drew a flag from the officials for excessive celebration. But should it have? FOX Sports NFL rules expert Mike Pereira pointed...

    After 13 seasons, including six AL Central Division titles in a span of nine seasons, the Twins have parted ways with Gardenhire. The team lost 383 games in the past four season under Gardenhire, an average of more than 95 losses per season. The Twins confirmed that they will replace Gardenhire in 2015. The Twins said in the release that they will "immediately begin their search for a new manager, internally and externally." Gardenhire had one year remaining on his two-year extension signed last offseason. The rest of the coaching staff was retained at that time on one-year deals. The...

    Michigan should fire head coach Brady Hoke tomorrow. Entering the 2014 season, there were multiple columns written by members of the media and opinions voiced by fans that Hoke was on one of the hottest seats in America. After earning an 11-2 record and a Sugar Bowl victory in his debut season in 2011, Hoke's Wolverines had won only 15 games total in 2012 and 2013 and appeared to be regressing after dropping five of their final six contests last season. Their general conclusion was that Hoke would be relieved of his duties at the end of this season if...

    Arjen Robben has warned Bayern Munich to prepare psychologically for when they meet CSKA Moscow behind closed doors on Tuesday. The German champions play their Russian counterparts in the UEFA Champions League Group E clash at the Arena Khimki. However, no supporters will be in attendance as CSKA were sanctioned by UEFA in February after fans displayed "a range of racist and far-right symbols" in a Champions League match with Viktoria Plzen last December. The decision has riled Bayern chairman Karl Heinz-Rummenigge, who voiced his frustration that Bayern fans are unable to attend.

    It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police for treating women equally (how dare they!), but there’s perhaps no better example than a recent BBC writer who asks, “Is sport sexist?” The author, Aimee Lewis, poses the question because there are still sports where the women’s categories don’t precisely correspond to the men’s; for example, she mentions how women gymnasts and...

    The bodies of 31 people have been found near the peak of a Japanese volcano that erupted unexpectedly yesterday while it was packed with hikers out to admire autumn foliage, sending a huge cloud of ash and rock tumbling down its slopes. Police said the 31 people were found in “cardiopulmonary” arrest but declined to confirm their deaths pending a formal examination, as per Japanese custom. An official in the area said rescue efforts had been called off due to rising levels of toxic gas near the peak, as well as approaching nightfall. Hundreds of people, including children, were stranded...

Hakuho, the top wrestler in sumo, is 13-1 going into the last day of the tournament, but Tochinoshin, who began the tournament as juryo (the sumo equivalent of baseball's AAA), is 14-0.

Alabama displayed lots of power but no discipline, Oklahoma couldn’t get going until halftime, and Auburn would have lost if not for a series of unforced K-State miscues.
