[VIDEO] ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Trailer: Watch Super Bowl Teaser

Hang up your Christmas lights, fill up your isolation tanks, and hold on to your Eggo waffles, the “Stranger Things” Season 2 teaser trailer just dropped.

While many watch the Super Bowl because there’s a football game going on or because their favorite artist is performing at halftime, others tune in for the trailers, and perhaps none caused more excitement this year than the teaser trailer for Season 2 of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

The spot featured Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) in full Ghostbusters costumes, presumably for Halloween, and teased even more trouble for the ’80s kids. Read the rest of this entry »

BREAKING: Aaron Hernandez Found Guilty in Murder of Odin Lloyd: First Degree Murder

Aaron-Guilty

FALL RIVER, Mass. — A Massachusetts jury of seven women and five men found Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end, guilty of murder in the first degree to conclude a nine-week trial in Bristol County Superior Court.

He will serve a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Hernandez, 25, was on trial for murdering Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old landscaper from Boston. He was also found guilty of unlawful firearm possession and unlawful ammunition possession after prosecutors presented a case based on circumstantial evidence due to a lack of eyewitnesses or a murder weapon.

Hernandez’s mother, Terri Hernandez, and his fiancee openly wept while the verdict was read. Hernandez was emotionless.

In closing arguments last Tuesday, Hernandez’s attorney, James Sultan, acknowledged for the first time that Hernandez was at the murder scene, but only as a witness, insinuating that one of Hernandez’s alleged accomplices – Ernest Wallace or Carlos Ortiz – shot Lloyd while high on phencyclidine, better known as PCP. Ortiz and Wallace both face murder charges, and are expected to be tried later this year…(read more)

Marvel Superheroes Chris Evans, Chris Pratt Settle Super Bowl Bet, Visit Seattle Children’s Hospital

marvel-seattle

Captain America” actor Chris Evans met some “true superheroes” on Saturday at Seattle Children’s Hospital in a visit with “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt.

It was their second hospital visit as part of a Super Bowl bet that ended in a win for everyone.

“Meeting Captain America and Star-Lord is an experience our patients will always remember. The kids were beyond excited to meet Captain America and Star-Lord.”

The bet: If Pratt’s team — the Seattle Seahawks — won the Super Bowl, Evans would visit Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America. If Evans’ team — the New England Patriots — won, Pratt would visit Christopher’s Haven in Boston dressed as “Guardians of the Galaxy” character Star-Lord, wearing Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s jersey.

“Meeting them was a nice reprieve for us. So many of our visitors are doctors, and the conversations are medical. I can’t wait to watch the Captain America movie with Oskar. It will be like he knows him personally now.”

— Oskar’s mom Kelli Beechum

Even though the Patriots won, the two Chrises visited both hospitals. Read the rest of this entry »

The Shrink on the Seattle Seahawks’ Sideline

The Super Bowl Champions Swear by a Sports Psychologist

Matthew Futterman writes: For most of the last two seasons, the Seattle Seahawks have been the most physically prepared team in the NFL, a collection of perfectly honed athletes that can outrun and outmuscle opponents at will.

“We want to invite the lion into the room and learn how to pet him. Our mind is easily distracted by thoughts and sounds and smells, and when our mind is distracted, we decrease our ability to perform.”

The Seahawks’ secret weapon, though, just might be the team’s willingness to give a sports psychologist the freedom to roam the training facility, locker room and even the sidelines every game, to make sure their heads are as sound as their bodies.

“We need to get better at being present, and you can be present by understanding and deepening the insight about who we are and how our mind works.”

For nearly three seasons, Michael Gervais has spent three days a week with the team, instilling what he and coach Pete Carroll refer to as “relationship-based coaching.” In the simplest terms, this means making sure coaches and players all understand each other on the deepest possible level, so that everyone feels valued and can communicate effectively.

“It’s the most fascinating culture I have ever been able to witness. There is a relentless approach to the idea that relationships matter.”

“We are an incredibly mindful team,” said Tom Cable, the Seahawks’ offensive line and assistant head coach, using an adjective that rarely comes across the lips of an NFL coach. “If I can understand someone like (guard) James Carpenter at a higher and deeper level, then I reach him further in terms of getting him to be the best he can be.”

“There is the overt objective and need to have the organization achieve. Some organizations sell widgets and some, like the Seahawks, sell outcomes, and the foundation of a great outcome is a relationship.”

— Sports Psychologist Michael Gervais

This sort of pursuit isn’t new to the sports world. Sports figures have long aspired to what is commonly referred to as “mindfulness”—an ability to perform without worrying about what has just happened or what might happen next. The Seahawks also are hardly the first team to give players access to a shrink. Read the rest of this entry »


Liberal Magazine: If You Want The Patriots To Win The Super Bowl, You’re Racist

NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Minicamp

The Nation Wants Seattle Seahawks To Win Super Bowl

Christian DatocDatoc reports: Even as the final days before the Super Bowl draw to a close, the liberal media refuses to quit its slanderous campaign against the 2015 AFC Champion New England Patriots.

The most recent salvo of Pats-hate comes from noted liberal-weekly, The Nation, which decided to abandon any and all shreds of journalistic bias in favor of declaring the Seattle Seahawks as America’s chosen team. The Deflate-Gate scandal has been revealed as a smoke and mirrors effort to undermine the house that Belichick built, and at this point in the game, these last futile proclamations from the self-proclaimed “flagship of the left” are not only easy to see through, but just flat-out repetitive.

patriots-seahwks

For starters, the article’s main argument is basically as follows: “The NFL is part of a changing, more socially-conscious America, and if you aren’t pulling for the Seahawks, it’s probably because you’re a racist.”

Seriously. It’s all in there.

When I started writing about the intersection of sports and politics in 2003, a countless number of sentences started with two words: “if only”. “If only” star athletes used their hyper-exalted-brought-to-you-by Nike platform to actually say something about the world instead of just trying to sell us more crap. If only they stood up to tired sports media that for decades had treated outspoken athletes with a sneering and, in the case of black players, transparently racist contempt… 

This is a team that has had players speak out for the Black Lives Matter movement and a team that has felt no compunction against calling out a commissioner in Roger Goodell who cares more about public relations than the players and the families of players that the league employs…

To have Marshawn Lynch consciously try to control his own labor and by doing so, dredge up the worst impulses in the sports media aristocracy was, intentionally or not, a national service. Thanks to Lynch, we have seen a layer of sports writers regurgitate all of their suppressed bile against young black athletes—tweeting things like their desire for an “English to Marshawn dictionary”—and exposing the long-standing resentments older and mostly whiter sportswriters have towards the people they cover…(read more)

How many times are these guys going to use the same, tired argument? I guess it’s worked in the last two elections, so hell, might as well try it in the Super Bowl. Read the rest of this entry »
