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…

Nov 22, 2014 By Joey White 1

One of Michelle Obama’s biggest priorities as First Lady has been to improve the health of one of the world’s unhealthiest countries. To that end, she’s been the driver behind a movement to make school lunches more healthy.

But not everyone is on board with the First Lady’s plan.

As high schoolers watch their lunches get cut back and are served meals that are intended to be more healthy, they’ve taken to Twitter over the past year to vent their frustration.

We’ve scoured Twitter and compiled some of our favorite — or least favorite — meals from high schoolers who are hoping for some improvements…

What If Darth Vader Was a Bible-thumper?

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 0

Obviously, Darth Vader is an extremist. One could even make the argument that he is a religious extremist. As such it would be fair to say that he is a kind of fundamentalist, though obviously not of any religion we’re used to seeing fundamentalists from.

But what if his extreme devotion were toward a faith we’re more familiar with…

Could an American Crowd Do What These Canadians Did When the Singer’s Mic Cut Out?

Nov 20, 2014 By Joey White 1

When NHL teams from the US and Canada face off, they sing the national anthems for both countries before the game, regardless of where the game is being played.

For Tuesday night’s Toronto Maple Leafs game against the visiting Nashville Predators, the microphone kept cutting out during the singing of the US national anthem before finally going completely dead.

Without missing a beat, the Canadians jumped right in to finish off their southern neighbors’ anthem…

Do you think this would happen in reverse at a game in the U.S.?
