On the same day that it was revealed that Aaron Hernandez had a severe case of CTE at the time he committed suicide in his prison cell, Hernandez’s fiance’ Shayanna Jenkins announced that she was hitting the NFL and the New England Patriots with a $20 million lawsuit. The suit claims that the NFL and the Patriots both knew of Hernandez’s condition prior to him committing the crime he was eventually convicted of and sentence to life in prison for, and covering up Hernandez’s condition. The lawsuit alleges that the NFL and Patriots both knowingly “concealed and misrepresented the risks of repeated traumatic head impacts to NFL players.” And also “needlessly delayed adoption of rules and league policies related to player health and safety with regard to concussions and subconcussive head trauma.” Jenkins’ attorney, and former Hernandez criminal trial attorney Jose Baez, said that Boston University’s CTE Center revealed that Hernandez suffered from “the most severe case of CTE they had ever seen for someone Aaron’s age(27)” Shayanna Jenkins is going to win this case.(In my opinion) I doubt if the NFL even allows this lawsuit to make it into a courtroom. They will gladly settle out of court before they will allow more spotlight to be placed on them about current NFL players and former NFL players suffering from CTE. That is only one of the problem the billion dollar a year machine named the NFL is having at the moment. $20 million is just a drop in the bucket to the NFL. Shayanna should’ve sued for more.
That’s exactly what the new delivery service that Walmart is working on wants to do. Trying to keep up and compete with Amazon is enough to drive anybody to the edge of insanity. That’s what it looks like is happening here. Walmart has teamed up with smart home accessory company, August to give the service a test run. Here’s how the service will work:
- The delivery man, using a one time code provided by August, will enter the customers home (provided they possess the necessary home upgrades provided by August of course)
- The delivery man will then place all perishables into the fridge for you. The remaining items will be left in a box next to your front door.
- Customers will get a notification of the delivery, at which time they can watch the whole process via remote camera with the August home app.
The test is being run in Silicon Valley and only customers of August home accessories can use the service as of now. Will you be using this service when it becomes available in your area?
According to TMZ she is. Kylie is allegedly knocked up by her current beau Travis Scott. Kylie is reportedly due in February. The big news drops just as a new season of Keeping Up With The Kardishians is on the horizon. What a coincidence huh?
If you picked almost any player from last night’s game on your fantasy football team this week you’re probably looking pretty good this morning. The San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams scored a combined 80 points last night. The Rams ended up winning the game 41-39. The game was actually as good as the score. I don’t think anyone saw this coming from these two teams. The Rams came into this game 1-1 and the 49ers came into the game 0-2 and the only team in the NFL who had not scored an offensive touchdown yet this season. Of course that was before last nights game. The Rams had not been looking much better than the 49ers this year. The game was tight until the Rams pulled ahead by 15 points late in the 4th quarter, thanks to a missed extra point earlier in the game by the 49ers. Down 15 points late in the 4th quarter, the 49ers drove the length of the field to score a touchdow. Brian Hoyer found Trent Taylor with a nice pass in the end zone. Down 41-33, the 49ers kicked off to the Rams who fumbled deep in their own territory. The 49ers eventually scored on Caslos Hyde’s 1 yard TD run. Down 39-41 with 2:00 left on the clock, the 49ers decided to go for two. Hoyer’s pass was intercepted in the end zone by the Rams. With less than 2:00 on the game clock, the 49ers decided to go with an onside kick……which they recovered. At this point I think everybody was expecting one last drive by the 49ers and a game winning field goal as time expired on the game clock. That didn’t happen. The ending was kind of a let down compared to the build up. The 49ers went backward after recovering the onside kick. Two terrible holding penalties and one false start, set the Niners up with a 4th and 20. A sack by the Rams Eric Donald finally stuck a fork in the fighting 49ers. A bit of a letdown, but still a hell of a game. Possibly the best game I’ve seen so far this season, and definitely the best Thursday night game I’ve ever seen, which are usually hot garbage.
