They haven’t released any names yet, but a player for the Kansas City Chief’s has reportedly shot and killed his girlfriend. He then drove to Arrowhead Stadium where he shot and killed himself at about 8 am this morning.
Via KCTV News:
Police are investigating two deadly shootings Saturday morning that they said are related.
The shootings involve a Chiefs player and his girlfriend.
The first shooting was reported about 8 a.m. at a home near East 54th Terrace and Crysler Avenue. The second shooting was reported a short time later at a Chiefs practice facility located on the Arrowhead facility.
Officials said the Chiefs player shot and killed his girlfriend and then drove to the practice facility where he shot and killed himself.
It’s unknown if people were at Arrowhead or any of its surrounding facilities at the time. The Chiefs confirmed the shooting in a written statement saying, “We can confirm that there was an incident at Arrowhead earlier this morning. We are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”
This is stunning…
UPDATE: Reports indicate the player is 25 years of age. A quick scan of the roster shows these players matching that age description:
UPDATE: The Viking Age is reporting that the player was indeed one of those on the above list – Jovan Belcher.
The scene looked vaguely like a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial.
It’s not unusual for a mid-day downpour to hit Miami, Florida. But something seemed amiss when the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks were playing under clear skies and bright sunshine … and a downpour all-of-a-sudden hit the field anyway.
This rain however, was man-made…
Via Yahoo! Sports:
With 1:53 left in the third quarter of the Miami Dolphins’ game against the Seattle Seahawks at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill ran for a 19-yard gain, taking the ball from the Miami 33-yard line to the Seattle 48.
And then … well, this happened:
The sprinklers went off on the Sun Life field, dousing everybody with water. One side judge ran away like the sprinklers were full of hot lava, while some players seemed to enjoy cooling off in the Miami heat. Someone found the off switch a few seconds later, and play resumed.

It what may stand as the longest, rambling basketball analogy ever made by a politician, President Obama accused the Romney campaign of playing dirty yesterday.
You know, like that time they accused the President of allowing a man’s wife to get cancer and die? Or the time they accused Democrats of wanting dirtier air and water? Or how about that time they ran an ad showing the President throwing grandma and her wheelchair off the cliff? Oh wait, what?
“I can’t resist a basketball analogy,” Obama told the crowd, according to a White House pool report. “We are in the fourth quarter. We’re up by a few points but the other side is coming on strong and they play a little dirty.”
“We’ve got a few folks on our team in foul trouble. We’ve got a couple of injuries, and I believe that they’ve got one last run in them.”
“I’d say there’s about seven minutes to go in the game. And [Michael Jordan’s] competitiveness is legendary, and nobody knows better than Michael that if you’ve got a little bit of a lead and there’s about seven minutes to go — that’s when you put them away.”
GOP chairman Ed Cox had a basketball analogy of his own for the President.
“While President Obama spends his day shooting hoops with Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, and Carmelo Anthony, his administration continues to throw bricks when it comes to job creation and economic growth.“
And in other heartbreaking sports-related news, despite the fact that the President’s sole success story during his reign is the fact that he has a laser-like focus on all things sports – i.e. 100+ rounds of golf, pickup basketball games and fundraiser, filling out college brackets – team owners in the four major sports have made a majority of their contributions to Republicans this cycle.
Overall, team owners for the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL have given $1,992,050 to 2012 national election efforts. Of the total, Republicans were the victors with nearly $1.25 million. Democrats received a little more than $750,000, the station said.
And that includes the NBA team from New York; Knicks owner James Dolan is a Romney donor.
Here’s another basketball analogy. Let’s hope that when November comes, the President has been ejected from the game for a flagrant technical foul on the economy and the American dream.
What is this comment based on? It’s one thing to have delusional driveling liberals that are passed off as journalists on MSNBC, but it’s another thing when the sports guy comes up with an analysis that is this far off base, and this moronic. It can only be explained by some sort of personal hatred for the man.
MSNBC can’t even keep liberal politics out of sports. Nation sports editor Dave Zirin appeared on the cable network, Wednesday, to hyperventilate over the announcement that Tim Tebow has been traded to the New York Jets. Zirin berated, “…There are a lot of LGBT people that live in New York City who are also football fans and they might want to know why the new, possibly, starting quarterback for the New York Jets wants them to move backwards 30 or 40 years.”
Why does Tebow want to set gays back 40 years? Because he once did a very mild pro-life commercial for Focus on the Family? Completely going off on a tangent, Zirin whined, “Now, I don’t want to shock you, Tamron, but there are a lot of women in New York who use birth control.”
I know this sounds like an Onion article, but it’s not.
And remember, Tim Tebow is the controversial one…
Denver prosecutors say Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has been charged with drunken driving and careless driving after getting pulled over in south Denver.
Denver district attorney’s spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said Tuesday that Moreno is also charged with failure to have proof of insurance and is due back in court March 2 after police issued a summons.
Denver police Lt. Matthew Murray says Moreno was pulled over on Feb. 1 after allegedly driving 70 mph in an interstate construction zone where the speed limit was 45 mph.
According to FOX31 in Denver, Moreno was driving a Bentley convertible with personalized license plates that read “SAUCED.”
|When did it become a horrible thing to believe in God?|
Baltimore Ravens linebacker, Terrell Suggs, took an unprovoked shot at Denver Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow, earlier today. During an appearance on ESPN’s show, First Take, Suggs had this to say (via Yahoo! Sports):
“With all due respect we don’t need God on our sidelines,” Suggs said. “Once again God had to save Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. He couldn’t even give them two drives? Seven to three?”[Referring to the score Denver lost by on Sunday.]
The trash-talking was seemingly unnecessary, as Suggs and the Ravens have a bye this week, and likely will not face the Broncos in the playoffs.
Suggs personal rant against Tebow didn’t stop there. He went on to claim he could put up better numbers than Tebow at quarterback.
From the Bleacher Report:
Suggs was interviewed by notorious instigator Skip Bayless on ESPN’s and told the television personality that he could put up similar numbers to his “man crush” Tim Tebow if he were playing quarterback in Denver.
From their, the religion mocking continued:
Not only did Suggs attack Tebow’s production and call the 8-8 Broncos “mediocre,” but he said he and the Ravens don’t need to pray on the sideline to win football games be bailed out by a kicker.
“He’s alright. He’s alright. Let’s be honest, Skip, I can put up the numbers he was [putting up],” he said. “It’s all about numbers, baby. Give me a shot. Let’s see what we can do, create my own offense and hopefully my kicker can nail a 62-yarder to bail me out a few times, Jesus shows up. … That boy be praying on the sidelines, boy. I don’t feel comfortable [if] I’ve got to pray every fourth quarter like, ‘Oh my God, please come save me again.’”
