After Donald Trump's controversial comments on Friday that called for NFL owners to cut any player who protested during the national anthem, most teams responded on Sunday by having a show of unity while the anthem was played. However, that's not what the Steelers did. Instead, before the team's game in Chicago, coach Mike Tomlin decided that the Steelers would remain in their locker room while the national anthem was sang. "You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as a football team it's about us remaining solid," Tomlin said before the game. "We're not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. ... We're not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals

If you think Fox & Friends is crazy, it’s quite possible you’ve never seen Fox & Friends Weekend. On Sunday, Donald Trump’s favorite show’s B team offered up a vigorous defense of the president’s recent attacks on NFL players and denounced the #TakeTheKnee protests that have already ramped up in a major way this morning. After reading Trump’s latest Twitter threats on the issue, host Pete Hegseth said the president was “effectively calling for a fan boycott of NFL,” because those who attend games or watch on TV “enable this kind of activity.” “Of course, this is all premised on the fact that everyone says Donald Trump is a racist,” Hegseth added. “So if you have a white supremacist in the White
New evidence proves that the ancient Egyptians constructed the Great Pyramid at Giza by transporting 170,000 tons of limestone in boats. It has long been known that the rock was extracted eight miles away in Tura and that granite used in the monumental structure was quarried 533 miles away in Aswan. However, archaeologists have disagreed over how the material was transported to Giza, now part of modern-day Cairo, for construction of Pharaoh Khufu’s tomb in 2600 BC. Now that mystery could be a step further to being solved after the discovery of an ancient scroll of papyrus, a ceremonial boat and a network of waterways, reported the Mail on Sunday. The new evidence shows that thousands of laborers
President Donald Trump claimed widespread protests during NFL games - including many instances of teams locking arms in unity against Trump’s attacks on NFL players - showed “great solidarity” in a tweet on Sunday afternoon. “Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!” Trump wrote. More than 100 players kneeled or sat during national anthem performances around the league on Sunday in protest of police brutality and injustice. Dozens of others locked arms in defiance of Trump, who slammed NFL players during a Friday rally. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our
When Professor Reb Beatty of Maryland’s Anne Arundel Community College arrived at his accounting class to administer a test last week, he hardly could have imagined that he’d be the one getting outsmarted. In a Sept. 20 Facebook post that’s since gone viral, Beatty explained that he’d told his students that they were allowed to bring in a “3x5” cheat sheet to use during the test. Beatty, however, failed to specify the unit of measurement he was referring to.
Jerry Lewis' six sons were purposely excluded from the late comic's will. The legendary comedian, who died in August at 91, explicitly asked that they receive no benefits from his estate. In documents obtained by the Blast and People, the Emmy-winning star's last will and testament declares the exclusion of his children with ex-wife Patti Palmer, whom he was married to from 1944 to 1980. "I have intentionally excluded Gary Lewis, Ronald Lewis, Anthony Joseph Lewis, Christopher Joseph Lewis, Scott Anthony Lewis, and Joseph Christopher Lewis and their descendants as beneficiaries of my estate, it being my intention that they shall receive no benefits hereunder," the excerpt said.

Jack is a small white dog who lives in Mexico City and has been missing since a magnitude 7.1 earthquake startled both humans and their pets when it struck early Tuesday afternoon. “I got lost in the earthquake!!!” a sign with his picture taped to a tree exclaims. Around Mexico’s capital are scattered signs for missing pets, mostly dogs, who their owners believe got scared and escaped in the chaotic moments after the devastating quake. Rescuers have found some skittishly wandering the streets and taken them to shelters. They know they are someone’s pet because they are clean, friendly and appear well nourished. “When a dog has been in the streets for a long time they are dirty and very thin,” said Silvia Garcia, the owner of an animal shelter that has taken in seven dogs since the quake. “These dogs are well taken care of.” No one knows for certain how many pets are missing but many of Mexico City’s hardest-hit areas are filled with dog-friendly restaurants, parks and upscale groomers. A video of rescuers pulling a Golden Retriever from the rubble of a fallen building went viral the day of the quake. Trained search and rescue dogs are helping volunteers search for signs of life. Countless other animals have had to flee with their owners from buildings still in danger of collapse. (AP) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr.
NASCAR playoffs contender Kevin Harvick spun while battling Austin Dillon for position during today’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Harvick lit up his rear tires trying to stay out of the wall, but the cloud of smoke from his big burnout kept other drivers from being able to see what was in front of him and caused a pile-up anyway. The smokiest pile-up of the race happened with just two laps to go in Stage 2, collecting eight drivers in the mess, including unlucky last-season fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. as well as five contenders in NASCAR’s playoffs. Harvick and Kurt Busch had to retire immediately, as their cars were hooked together and had to be pulled apart by the wreckers. Any

Dear Amy: After more than 20 years of marriage, my husband and I divorced. During the marriage, my husband had a brief sexual affair with my sister. I did not find out until several years after the event. My husband confessed to the incident because he was feeling guilty. He confessed to other incidents, and, after much counseling, we divorced. I have given my sister every opportunity to fess up and apologize. I wanted to forgive her and for us to move on. She refused to acknowledge any role in this, and I finally quit speaking to her several years ago. She has a history of deceitful behavior, refuses to accept any responsibility for her misdeeds and has always felt entitled. She is the youngest,
