Yesterday, New York Giant Odell Beckham, Jr. made a catch that will be featured in highlight reels for decades to come.
It’s already unlikely that a pass thrown from midfield will result in a touchdown. Add to that a defender’s interference and the fact that this pass was thrown several feet over Beckham’s head and this seems like an impossible catch.
But he was able to leap and get a couple fingers on it…and that was all he needed.
Immediately, the announcers began hailing it as a catch that will go down in history…
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…
During a recent press conference, New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick went on diatribe against the inaccuracy of meteorologists’ forecasts.
The coach is notorious for hating having to talk to the press, so perhaps he was simply buying some time to bring the reporters’ hounding questions to an end…or maybe he was actually upset that a snowstorm had occurred on game day when some meteorologists had predicted two days earlier that playing conditions would be dry.
Regardless, his remarks about meteorologists were…unflattering. As it turns out, however, the facts were on the side of the meteorologists. And The Weather Channel made sure to perfectly point this out…
All 19-year-old Lauren Hill ever wanted to do was play basketball. And when she was recruited by the women’s basketball team at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, it seemed her dreams would come true…until, she says, “I wasn’t playing normally. I was dizzy and disoriented and wobbling around and not catching balls.”
But that didn’t stop Lauren from wanting to achieve her goals before the cancer claimed her. Determined not to give up, Lauren and her coach asked the NCAA to bend the rules and they complied. Instead of starting the season mid-November, they requested an exemption and had the first game moved to November 2nd, and played at home, so that Lauren could participate.
Nobody ever knows how much time you have left. I could be gone tomorrow or I could be here for another year. Why stop? Why give up on your life?
Lauren’s bravery and dedication to the game she loves has inspired so many people that Mount St. Joseph had to move the game to accommodate the thousands of people who wanted to attend in her support.
After she scored the first points of the game, there was not a dry eye in the arena…
