Nov 25, 2014 By Joey White 0

After last night’s announcement that Officer Darren Brown would not be indicted for murder after in the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, protests erupted all over Ferguson, Missouri, and the surrounding St. Louis area.

We saw numerous images of cars and buildings burning as looters and arsonists grabbed the headlines after what had been 108 days of largely peaceful protests.

But what you probably haven’t seen on CNN or in this morning’s edition of USA Today is that around the country, thousands stood in solidarity with Ferguson. While a few vandals seized the opportunity to smash a window here and there, these protests were largely peaceful and with the exception of a few brief moments, were largely ignored by the national media covering last night’s events.

Here are just a few of the cities you probably didn’t read about…

So when this young man in Singapore nervously texted his friend with his revelation, he wasn’t sure what kind of response he would get…

At 29 years old, Jason Brown was at the top of his game. The star center for the St. Louis Rams was called “the cornerstone of our line” by his head coach. Then suddenly, after playing three years of a five-year $37 million contract, the North Carolina native walked away from the game…

…to farm.

Brown had never farmed in his life, so he watched YouTube videos to figure out how to manage his new 1,000-acre property in rural North Carolina.

What’s more incredible than his sudden departure from the game that was making him millions of dollars is what he’s doing with the sweet potatoes and cucumbers he’s growing…

NFL Star Nearly Misses His Daughter’s Birth, Can Barely Contain His Raw Emotion

Nov 24, 2014 By Joey White 2

It was well before dawn when Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was suddenly awakened by pounding on his door. Hilton was in a deep sleep at the team hotel and hadn’t heard the phone calls letting him know his wife Shantrell was in labor with their first child.

Hilton’s best friend finally showed up at the hotel in person to awake the new dad and drive him to the hospital. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano got a call from Hilton on his way to the hospital at 5:30 AM letting him know he may not make their 1:00 game.

Fortunately, Hilton made it just in time for the birth of his new daughter.

At 11:15 — less than two hours before game time — he was cradling his new daughter when he looked at her and asked, “Baby, you want the game ball or touchdown ball?”

Hilton arrived at the stadium just 75 minutes before kickoff and proceeded to lead his team with 122 receiving yards, including a 73-yard touchdown catch that sealed the game.

When the star of the day was interviewed after the game, he couldn’t hold back the tears…

After locker room celebrations were finished, Hilton rushed back to the hospital and delivered the game ball to its rightful owner…
