‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed’s Cuckoo Bananas Dad Shares 9/11 ‘Truther’ Posts on Facebook

clock-boy-dad

Inside Job? The post appeared as recently as Thursday morning but has since been taken down.

Merrill Hope reports: Last month, on September 12, Mohamed Elhassen Mohamed, father of Texas ‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed, posted on Facebook a photo of the World Trade Center Twin Towers shrouded in raging smoke in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The photo appeared on his Sudanese National Reform party page on the day after the 9/11 anniversary.

The post appeared as recently as Thursday morning but has since been taken down. It sourced to the Sudanese Military Establishment and asserts a truther philosophy that 9/11 was an inside job, calling these “so-called” events a “rumor.”

cuckoo-clock

Through the social media site’s Arabic translation, the post also describes 9/11 as “just an American industry media” that “some tried leveled terrorism ‘Islamist.” Conversely, it also alleges America deserved the Al Qaeda perpetrated attack, calling it the “egg that lays golden eggs for America has terrorism” that “came to her on a plate to invade Muslim countries.”

Presently, Mohamed tours the Middle East with his clock-making son, but he is also a Sudanese Reform Party activist and the repeatedly failed Sudanese National Reform party candidate for president of that country, although he and his family reside in Irving, a Dallas suburb.

Two days after the 9/11 truther post, on Sept. 14, son Ahmed Mohamed was arrested for bringing in the unassigned homemade clock-in-a-box that appeared to be a suitcase timepiece hoax bomb to school district officials and local law enforcement, although charges were dropped.

Again, on Sept. 28, Mohamed’s National Reform Party Facebook page posted a 15 minute English language video chockful of 9/11 conspiracy theories insinuating the collapse of the Trade Center’s twin towers was because “explosives were placed in these buildings before the attacks.” Read the rest of this entry »


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.”

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

The Shrink on the Seattle Seahawks’ Sideline

hawk-shrink

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 »


Soccer Star Hope Solo Suspended for 30 Days

Hope-Solo-sex_&_violence

U.S. women’s national soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo was suspended for 30 days and will not participate in matches during the team’s Europe trip next month.

The suspension comes after the arrest of her husband, Jeremy Stevens, earlier this week on suspicion of driving under the influence. U.S. Soccer did not specify the reason for the suspension.

[Also see – The National Women’s Soccer League’s Domestic Violence Problem: Hope Solo Arrested, Jailed, in Family Abuse Scandal]

Solo was in the car when the former Seattle Seahawks tight end was pulled over in Manhattan Beach, California early Monday morning for driving without headlights on. Solo was not arrested or detained.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper was in Southern California for training camp with the U.S. national team, which is preparing to play in the World Cup starting in June.

“During our current national team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates,” coach Jill Ellis said in a statement. “We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team.”

Solo, who has won two Olympic gold medals with the U.S. team, was released from camp. Read the rest of this entry »

TV Ratings: Super Bowl XLVIII Is Most Watched in History With 111.5 Million Viewers

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll at Super Bowl XLVIII

UPDATED: Contrary to early returns, the game ends up topping the 2012 outing by 200,000 viewers to become the biggest show ever to air on U.S. TV.

Looks like I was wrong again, it’s good thing I didn’t go on record with my predictions. Contrary to my expectation, the Superbowl had record-breaking viewership. Based on the lopsided score by half time, I assumed many viewers would tune out (as often happens in blowout games) so, the advertisers should be happy.

Michael O’Connell reports:  Final ratings are in for the 2014 Super Bowl — and, contrary to early returns, which saw the game ranking fifth all-time, the NFL season finale ended up being the biggest to date. An average 111.5 million viewers tuned in to see the Seattle Seahawks blow the Denver Broncos out of the water, making it the most watched Super Bowl and the most watched program in U.S. television history.

That’s up 3 million from last year’s Super Bowl, which averaged 108.4 million viewers. That game, between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, though close, suffered an audience drop when a power outage halted the game for 30 minutes.

From Andy Nesbit, Fox Sports: During her free time, Alicia Quaco, 25, is a member of the “Sea Gals,” the cheerleading squad for the Seattle Seahawks.

What’s her full-time gig? First lieutenant in the US Air Force.

The New York Post has the details:

Rookie “Sea Gal” Alicia Quaco, 25, works long days as a contract manager for the Air Force before rushing to evening cheerleading practice… taking on the demanding double life, she first had to convince her military higher-ups in a formal presentation to let her moonlight as a Sea Gal after trying out for the squad last year, she said.

Fans of the Seattle Seahawks, and team running back Marshawn Lynch in particular, may very well set out a bowl of Skittles for their Super Bowl parties this Sunday. Lynch’s love of Skittles has gotten extra attention in recent weeks as his team advanced through the playoffs, and after giving the brand millions in free publicity, Skittles officially partnered with Lynch in an endorsement deal featuring a limited-edition “Seattle Mix” strain of the candies with only the team colors, blue and green.

SPORTSBOT: Computer Simulation Predicts Seahawks Over Broncos

(credit: Jeff Gross/Getty Images)

PHILADELPHIA (CBS)  – The Seahawks and the Broncos will only play once for the title of Super Bowl champion. The game won’t be played on a computer, but on the field. But that doesn’t stop people from trying to guess what will happen on the field, with what happens in a computer simulation.

Prediction Machine’s Predictalator ran a simulation of Sunday’s Super Bowl 50,000 times, and found that the most likely score has the Seahawks beating the Broncos, 24-21.

Of the 50,000 simulations, the Seahawks won 54.8% of the time, and the Broncos 45.2% of the time.

The Broncos are currently a 2.5 point favorite at most sports books.

Richard Sherman: Okay, lemme ‘splain…

Allapundit has some good comments:

He’s an egomaniac — for good reason — but no, of course he’s not always in game mode and no, he’s not above giving credit where it’s due. Follow the link above to his SI piece and you’ll find him with nothing but praise for the Broncos. I think his issue here really is with Crabtree specifically. I didn’t see Crabtree shove him in the face after the play, but yep, he did; no doubt there’s more to that than Sherman’s letting on (if you really think all he said was “good game,” watch the clip below of RS discussing on-field trash talk from early last year) but the bad sportsmanship runs two ways. Sherman’s just the one who ended up with a mic in front of him five minutes later. If anything, his big sin here was singling out a player for derision whom not enough fans hate. If instead he had called Tom Brady a punk who throws like a girl (which he’s kinda sorta done before), 90 percent of the country would have been high-fiving on their couches…

SEATTLE (AP) The Seattle Seahawks are bringing their game-changing defense — and the 12th Man — to the Big Apple for the Super Bowl.

Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced three fourth-quarter turnovers, and Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down for the winning points in a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC title Sunday.

Seattle will meet Denver (15-3) for the NFL title in two weeks in the New Jersey Meadowlands. It’s the first trip to the big game for the Seahawks (15-3) since they lost to Pittsburgh after the 2005 season.

The conference champs had the best records in the league this year, the first time the top seeds have gotten to the Super Bowl since the 2010 game.

Moments after Richard Sherman tipped Colin Kaepernick‘s pass to teammate Malcolm Smith for the clinching interception, the All-Pro cornerback jumped into the stands behind the end zone, saluting the Seahawks’ raucous fans. With 12th Man flags waving everywhere, and “New York, New York” blaring over the loudspeakers, CenturyLink Field rocked like never before.

“That’s as sweet as it gets,” Sherman said.

America hates the Seahawks: It’s Geography

257721-seahawks-uniforms

Reid Wilson writes:  No professional sports teams have to travel farther than the Seattle Mariners and the Seattle Seahawks to get to their nearest rivals. The shortest trips they can take for an away game is about 800 miles south along Interstate 5 to the Bay Area, to play the Oakland Athletics or the San Francisco 49ers.

That means Seattle teams don’t really have natural rivalries. Those closest rivals are, to be frank, more storied franchises. On rivalry weekends during Major League Baseball season, the A’s are matched against the San Francisco Giants. The Mariners are artificially paired with the San Diego Padres or some other orphan team. The so-called rivalry between the Seahawks and the 49ers, which the booth announcers will advertise endlessly when the two teams meet in the NFC championship this weekend, is a much more recent development. The 49ers are more traditionally rivals of the Dallas Cowboys and other, older NFL teams.

The Seattle Supersonics could claim a rivalry with the Portland Trailblazers, but then they left for Oklahoma City (Editorializing alert: The author, a Seattle native, remains unhappy with Oklahoma City and plans to hold that grudge for quite a while). The feud between fans of the Portland Timbers and the Seattle Sounders, in the MLS, is real enough, but the rivalry cupboard is bare in baseball and football.

[VIDEO] Inside the Earthquake: Seattle Seahawks Fans Rock Stadium Again

There are a lot of sports and news stories about the noise levels at CenturyLink Field when the Hawks are playing a home game, but there’s nothing like a subjective first-person report with a shaky video camera, in Personal Reaction to Beast Quake 2011. It only captures a fraction of what it must be like (it’s the first few seconds that count, really, the rest of the video is post-climactic) but that first few seconds are a good capture of what it’s like to be there.

YouTube: Vanessa Kesseler

(AP)  Seismologists say Seahawks fans shook the ground under Seattle’s CenturyLink Field during Saturday’s defeat of the New Orleans Saints, causing another fan-generated earthquake.

The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynch’s famous “beast quake” touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game.

Roar, Rumble, and Rain: Seattle to Challenge Another NFL Outdoor Stadium Noise Record

NFL-Noise-Drudge

The SeahawksSaints playoff game: I’m watching this live. The deafening noise, and abnormally stormy conditions in Seattle should make for a high-volume, high-turnover contest. The seismometer reading should be interesting.

Tim Newcomb writes:

The last time the New Orleans Saints visited Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, the 12th Man made enough commotion to register a 1-to-2-magnitude earthquake. That number could intensify for the playoffs Saturday, and the Seahawks will have the equipment in place to record it. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network is placing two seismometers inside the downtown stadium.

Now we’ll see just how unhinged the 12th Man can get.

 The reputation of CenturyLink’s noise took off in 2011 when fan reaction to a Marshawn Lynch 67-yard playoff touchdown run registered on the University of Washington’s seismic network. That run, dubbed the “Beast Quake” in Seattle, set a standard for fans, matched only this year when Seahawks faithful set the Guinness World Record for noise at an outdoor stadium twice — first in September and again in December after the Kansas City Chiefs crowd stole it from them.

Washington state lawmaker calls Arizona ‘racist wasteland’

Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, intolerant, race-baiting hatemonger? Football fan? Guy who should be voted out of office for being an ignorant, arrogant moron? Or just another tax-supported Democrat with a Twitter account.

Talk about unsportsmanlike conduct.

A Washington state lawmaker took to Twitter on Sunday following a 17-10 loss by his beloved Seattle Seahawks to the Arizona Cardinals, ending Seattle’s 14-game home winning streak.

“Losing a football game sucks,” Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon wrote in a now-deleted message. “Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot.”

Fitzgibbon, who represents West Seattle, Burien, Vashon Island and White Center, removed the message a short time later and said he “shouldn’t have conflated” the two topics.
