In a statement on Thursday night, Thompson’s agent Chris Turnage said, “BJ is still unconscious at this point, but he’s stable, and his vitals are good.” “His family asks for your continued prayers,” added Turnage. Despite canceling all activities on Thursday, the Chiefs are expected to resume practice on Friday.

    The temporary pools came from northern Italy. The two million gallons of water came from a fire hydrant on South Capitol Ave., via 6,000 feet of piping that snakes through an NFL stadium. The swimmers will come from all over the United States, and step onstage near what’s usually the 45-yard line. And from June 15-23 in Indianapolis, they’ll take part in a grand, unprecedented experiment — all while trying to qualify for the Olympics. It’s “crazy,” Bobby Finke, a 2021 gold medalist, said of the plan for this year’s U.S. Olympic swimming trials — crazy in a good way....

    If there was any Chiefs teammate who would refer to kicker Harrison Butker as “Harry,” then you knew it was tight end Travis Kelce, right? Kelce let that tidbit be known in the latest episode of the New Heights podcast. Butker was a topic of conversation for Kelce and his brother Jason, the podcast co-host. “I probably might be the only person that calls him Harry,” Travis Kelce said as his brother laughed. “I’ve known him for eight-plus years and I cherish him as a teammate…He’s treated family that I’ve introduced to him with nothing but respect and kindness. And...

    When Kamala Harris recently dropped the F-bomb, in her sitting capacity as vice president of the United States, her descent to the gutter was noticed by millions. But when low-class rockers call Harrison Butker a “******* *****,” it is par for the course. Butker has been condemned by anti-Catholic bigots for giving a Catholic speech at a Catholic college. The latest to chime in is Eddie Vedder. Who is Eddie Vedder? Never heard of him. But I have heard of Pearl Jam, and he is their lead singer. Not knowing anything about him, I wondered if he was a pro-abortion,...

    Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey on Thursday said he is investigating the office of Democratic Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas after it reportedly “doxxed” Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker in an X (formerly Twitter) post. The alleged leaking of Butker’s personal information came days after he gave the commencement address at Benedictine College in Kansas over the weekend. There, Butker encouraged graduates at the small Catholic college to “be authentically and unapologetically Catholic.” He also spoke positively about marriage and motherhood, but criticized the abortion industry and the LGBTQ movement. Bailey wrote to Lucas in a letter dated...

    The NFL has tolerated many things in the past. Players abusing their wives/girlfriends, driving drunk, saying horrible things about a race or a religion, and even rape ... But it would appear there is finally SOMETHING the NFL will not tolerate, and that's Christianity. We saw a bit of this when Tim Tebow DARED go to one knee in prayer but they didn't outright condemn him, like they have Harrison Butker's speech. Apparently, Butker voicing Christian beliefs that include cherishing his wife and and the mother of their children is a step too far. It's interesting (and by interesting we...

    Hell froze over when Bill Maher defended the likes of Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker on his show Friday. The NFL player recently delivered a controversial commencement address at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, which sent the Left into meltdown mode. On one hand, there were some parts that many could view as anachronistic about the speech. Then again, Butker is a devout Catholic who delivered an address that aligned with those values. You can disagree without going crazy. And if Maher, an outspoken atheist and critic of organized religion, can shrug this off, so can everyone else. The...

    Harrison Butker, a kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, is in a heap of trouble these days. The NFL has issued a statement distancing itself from him, there is a petition at calling for him to be released, and outraged commentators across our fair land have lined up to condemn him and declare him unworthy to be in the company of decent people. What Butker did to get all this abuse is a sad indication of what life is like in this Age of Absurdity.If this were a sane society, you might get the impression that Butker did something...

Some of the wokester Catholic press tut-tutted and got all snide and nasty to him instead of defend him for defending the Catholic faith. But Kansas City Chiefs Kicker and Superbowl champ's fans are rallying, too, in a great wave of counter-moves. On social media, they demanded that his remarks not be taken out of context: They pointed to the NFL's hypocritical double standard: They put their money where their mouths were, and...
