Blichfeld approaches from behind and clips the head of the Colorado star, starting an immediate scrum between the two teams. Since he’s having a hearing, Blichfeld should expect a suspension for the hit, meaning he’ll miss at least one game for the Sharks. The 22-year-old winger...
    The Archdiocese of Washington is preserving silence on $2 million given to retired Cardinal Donald Wuerl for “ministry activities.” The 80-year-old cardinal resigned from his position in October 2018 after evidence of complicity in sexual abuse cover-ups in Pennsylvania. The Daily Caller News Foundation repeatedly asked the Archdiocese of Washington to comment on why Wuerl was allocated this increased sum, and what the retired cardinal has used the money for. The Archdiocese of Washington has not returned the DCNF’s requests for comment.

    A retired Connecticut cop was killed during a single-punch attack while vacationing in Las Vegas, police said. Thomas Driscoll, a 22-year veteran of the Connecticut State Police, died early Sunday from head and neck injuries after being attacked by a stranger who police say followed the ex-cop and a woman on a pedestrian bridge on the Las Vegas Strip, police said. An arrest report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal indicates Driscoll, 57, was on a walkway near Bally’s with a woman when they passed a group of men.

    By Elaine Shannon The FBI-Homeland Security intelligence bulletin circulated at midnight Tuesday is ominous, but entirely predictable, given widely published reports of far-right chatter over the past several weeks: It alerts local law enforcement officials that extremists may try to breach the U.S. Capitol on Thursday and attack Democratic lawmakers. The warning is based on a malevolent fantasy spread by followers of QAnon, the cultish pro-Trump movement, that Donald Trump will reemerge to take power as the rightful president on March 4, which was Inauguration Day until 1933. Preposterous, but the FBI has learned not to dismiss any threat, no matter how irrational. “It does not take an armed takeover” by an organized group to do a lot of damage, says Tom O’Connor, an FBI agent who investigated suspected domestic terrorists for 23 years. “It takes one person who believes they need to act. How possible is that, I ask...
    The best covers of Bob Dylan songs 30 Careless Ways Retirees Waste Money The Rangers now have both of their 2020 first-round picks under contract as CapFriendly reports (Twitter link) that they’ve inked defenseman Braden Schneider to a three-year, entry-level contract.  The deal carries a base salary of $925K (including a 10% signing bonus), a minor league salary of $80K, and $400K in performance bonuses in each season. © Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports The timing of this deal is notable.  Since they weren’t able to get him signed by the end of 2020, Schneider wasn’t eligible to have his contract slide a year.  As a result, by waiting until now to do the deal, they were able to sign him to a future contract that begins in 2021-22 although they won’t benefit from the slightly lower AAV that a 2020-21 contract that slid would have provided. Schneider was the 19th...

National Guard waited 3 hours for Pentagon approval It’s a little weird that J.J. Watt will end up wearing No. 99 with the Arizona Cardinals, despite the fact that it was retired by the franchise to honor Marshall Goldberg. © Provided by For The Win Beyond that? No big deal. And that’s really the thing about retired numbers. It’s one of those sports traditions that’s a little strange and a nice symbolic gesture at the same time. There’s treating digits with respect, as Watt did, and then there’s treating them with downright reverence, which feels unnecessary. In Watt’s case, 99 was a number he’d worn in Wisconsin and with the Houston Texans, and look at how he handled it: he asked Goldberg’s family for permission to un-retire it...
    A retired Connecticut State Police bomb squad member was killed on Sunday after a random attacker threw a punch that knocked him backward, causing the back of his head to hit the pavement on the Las Vegas Strip. Prior to Sunday's incident, Brandon Leath, the 33-year-old who has been charged with homicide in the death of Thomas Driscoll, 57, was reported to authorities several times by two people who say he was a ‘ticking time bomb,’ according to local media. Driscoll, 57, drove to Las Vegas as part of a months-long hiking trip that he planned to take in the Western part of the United States. Just before 4:30am, Driscoll was walking with a woman, Nava Fuehrer, across the pedestrian bridge between The Cromwell and Bally’s casino in Las Vegas when they passed by a group of men, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

    That’s a Wrap! ‘RHONY’ Season 13: Everything We Know All About Optimism: Cramers Mad Money Recap (Tuesday 3/2/21) As trade talks heat up, one player that certainly seems more likely than not to be finishing the season on a different team is veteran defenseman Alex Goligoski. TSN’s Frank Seravalli reports that the Arizona Coyotes are listening to offers for Goligoski and are expected to move him before the trade deadline in six weeks.

    When JJ Watt took to Twitter on Monday and announced that he would be signing with the Cardinals, the news brought plenty of excitement, as Arizona was not considered a favorite to land the former Texans defensive lineman based on previous reporting. It also created a small problem. Watt wore the No. 99 jersey while playing college football at Wisconsin and kept that number over 10 seasons in Houston. Unfortunately for the three-time Defensive Player of the Year, the Cardinals retired No. 99 to honor Marshall Goldberg, a Pro Bowler who played for the then-Chicago Cardinals from 1939 to 1948. Goldberg was also inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor shortly after his death in 2006. MORE: Why did Watt sign with the Cardinals? It was widely assumed that Watt would be forced to select a different number, but he may still be able to keep his first choice. Goldberg’s daughter, Ellen Goldberg Tullos, told TMZ Sports that she...

    J.J. Watt has worn No. 99 since he was making waves as a collegiate defensive end for Wisconsin and then through his 10-year tenure with the Houston Texans. Since he agreed to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, it was unclear whether he would be able to wear No. 99 since the organization retired it after Marshall Goldberg’s stellar career with the team. Goldberg played for the team known then as the Chicago Cardinals. He was a fullback and a halfback for the team and rushed for 1,644 yards and 11 touchdowns between 1939 and 1948.

    A Massachusetts man who was a retired Connecticut State Police Trooper was recently killed by a single-punch he absorbed while taking in the Las Vegas strip. On Monday, March 1, police said that sometime early on Sunday, Feb. 28, Thomas W. Driscoll, 57, of Chicopee died from head and neck injuries sustained in a homicide, according to U.S. News and World Report. It is not clear why Driscoll was attacked on the strip near Caesar’s Palace, the Bellagio, and Bally’s. According to police, the alleged assailant Brandon Marcus Leath, 33, of Nevada, yelled something at Driscoll and a woman on a pedestrian bridge. He followed them, met them at the bottom of an escalator, and attacked Driscol, who collapsed to the ground after being punched, US News reported. The incident was caught on camera, police said. Leath has since been arrested and charged with murder, according to EyeWitnessNews3.

Watt signed with the Arizona Cardinals, which means we’re going to see the former Houston Texans legend in a different uniform. © Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Judging by the contract, Watt was clearly valued around the league. So Houston losing the greatest player in the history of the franchise and getting nothing in return stings even more. On top of that, Watt is now playing for the franchise that fleeced the Texans in the Deandre Hopkins trade, meaning the Cardinals have now pilfered two of the greatest players in the history of Houston football over the last calendar year, and all they have to show for it is a second-round pick and a washed-up running back. It’s not even like the Cardinals have this reputation for having a shrewd front office. How do you...

    ROME – A retired Italian teacher has bequeathed more than 25 million euros ($30 million) to hospitals and charities, stunning residents of the northern city of Genoa where she lived who had no inkling of her wealth. Marisa Cavanna died in December aged 96. She was described as a reserved woman who never got married and did not attend social events.

    DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A musician who played the bells at Duke University’s iconic chapel at the end of each academic day, marking the end of class for countless students over five decades, died Thursday at age 73, the university said. J. Samuel Hammond died in Durham, according to a university news release. Hammond, who graduated from Duke in 1968, began playing the 50-bell carillon his freshman year. Hammond, who also worked for four decades as a music librarian at the university, retired as university carillonneur in 2018. The bells at the Gothic chapel are played by striking wooden keys by hand and pressing foot pedals, similar to a piano, according to a university news article. The keys and pedals control cables that cause hammers to strike the bells, which range in size from 10 pounds (4.5 kg) to more than 5 tons (4.5 metric tons). “The carillon...

    It has seemed inevitable since the Saints’ season ended, but will Drew Brees actually retire? If we want to read tea leaves, there have been plenty regarding the looming retirement of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. A contract with NBC. Two straight years with significant injuries and signs of decline. A contract restructuring that lowered his 2021 cap hit, if only as a favor to the cap-strapped (or an even stronger word than strapped) Saints. During Super Bowl week, Saints head coach Sean Payton told PFT Live that Brees’ retirement decision was coming within two weeks. Wednesday marks three weeks since Payton said that, as Mike Florio noted. The mechanics of processing Brees’ retirement allows the Saints to wait until June 2 to put him on the reserve/retired list, and split the cap hit between 2021 and ’22. But this bit from Florio stands out. “Per the NFL, the Saints...

The veteran was coming off a disappointing season and a second straight year of decline in his third season with Vegas, which at 36 years old was cause for alarm. Not only that, but his $7M cap hit was also causing problems for a team right up against the salary cap who had just re-signed Robin Lehner to a $25M extension with the intent that he was to be the starter. It was easy to understand why the Knights might have considered moving Fleury this off-season, but it seems a deal was always unlikely to occur.

    WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island Superior Court judge has restored full health care benefits to over 50 Woonsocket Police retirees after finding that the city and its budget commission violated the Rhode Island Constitution by indefinitely requiring them to pay deductibles.

Edward Roy Jr., who represented the retirees, said that his clients are gratified that the court accepted their arguments. Roy said that places a dollar figure on what retirees are owed and said that it is being evaluated.

A lawsuit filed in Carver County and a parallel action in the Minnesota Supreme Court seeks to prevent the current maps from being used in 2022 and potentially have the courts take over the job, Minnesota Public Radio reported. The case was filed by former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice James Gilbert on behalf of retired legislative redistricting expert Peter Wattson, retired Ramsey County Elections Manager Joe Mansky and others on Friday. It says the courts should redraw the political maps if nothing clears the Legislature by this time next year.

Damon, an Orlando native, is being held at the Orange County Corrections Department.

Police learned a group of boys was connected with the prank. One of the...

    Retired Army General Russel Honoré is leading a review of the security failures that led to the Capitol riot. Honoré has said on Twitter and in television appearances that he believes police officials were complicit in the riot. Honoré has spread other popular left-wing conspiracy theories about former President Donald Trump and Russia. The man Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi selected to investigate security failures at the Capitol riot Jan. 6 has a history of peddling left-wing conspiracy theories, especially about the riot in question. Pelosi announced Jan. 15 that Ret. Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré would lead the security review and assess any weaknesses. Honoré, who retired from the Army in 2008, has often used his Twitter account and media appearances to spread conspiracy theories about former President Donald Trump.

    Sorry, Lara Jean and Peter: Lana Condor and Anthony De La Torres Romance Has Our Hearts 25 Things You Should Always Do Before Buying a Used Car Two years ago, Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington surprised many by taking over the starting job in St. Louis, eventually leading them to a Stanley Cup title.  However, with no real track record of success before that point, the two sides eventually agreed on a two-year, $8.8M contract, a deal that gave the Blues some financial wiggle room but also allowed the netminder to reach unrestricted free agency in his prime.  That comes this summer, and not surprisingly, GM Doug Armstrong told Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic that their intent is to work out an extension with their top goalie: © Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports It appears Jordan Binnington is in line to secure a much-deserved extension.

    A retired military dog and her former handler are together again after a year apart thanks to help from the country’s largest humane organization. Bogi and U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Angela Cardone met in 2017 at the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan, where the five-year-old Belgian Malinois trained with Cardone in narcotics detection, safety sweeps, and vehicle searches, according to People. However, the two were forced to part when Cardone was reassigned to Hawaii and for months she worried she would never see her beloved canine again. “It kind of felt like a piece of me was missing,” Cardone said. When Cardone learned in June that Bogi would be medically retired due to a neck injury, she knew she wanted to adopt her, so she called on American Humane for assistance. “To ensure that all our heroes come home, American Humane is working to bring back retired military...

An eighth-round pick by the Twins back in 2009, Dozier was never considered a premium prospect even within his own organization, topping out as Baseball America’s No. 10 Twins prospect heading into the 2012 season. That didn’t stop the University of Southern Mississippi product from not only making it to the big leagues, but cementing himself as one of the club’s better players of the past decade.

    The retired Army general House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chose to head up a Capitol security review previously blamed GOP lawmakers over the Jan. 6 attack, causing Republicans to question his impartiality. After the Capitol siege, aimed at disrupting the electoral vote-counting that made President Joe Biden's election official, Pelosi appointed retired General Lt. Russell Honoré to review security measures. Security was found wanting after the mob riot by pro-Trump supporters, as congressional lawmakers debated contesting presidential electoral votes to Arizona and Pennsylvania. “I have asked Lt. General Russel Honoré (Ret.), a respected leader with experience dealing with crises, to lead an immediate review of the Capitol's security infrastructure, interagency processes and procedures, and command and control," Pelosi said in a statement about Honoré on Jan. 15. However, Honoré appeared to have his own conclusions about who was responsible for the Capitol attack, prior his appointment by the house speaker....
    Erling Haaland, the diamond that came from cold Norway. His scoring ability, his speed and his youth make him, with permission from Kylian Mbappé, in one of the great wishes for any soccer team with potential. Behind a curious career that took him from the humble Bryne to the present Borussia Dortmund there is a different footballer, away from the great luxuries and clichés. Somewhat introverted, without much fondness for social networks or spending time partying, with his feet very on the ground, there are five details from his biography that explain why we are facing a different player also off the pitch. Roy Keane’s revenge on his father Although he proudly wears his Norwegian nationality, Haaland may have been perfectly English. He was born in Leeds, where his father, Alf-Inge, played. Hard central (and sometimes defensive midfielder), Alf-Inge Haaland was a middle-class player on several Premier teams (Nottingham forest,...

    Jason Varitek’s number isn’t retired, and the Red Sox just gave it away. Varitek will always get a free beer in Boston, as he led to the Red Sox on their memorable 2004 World Series run, which included a 3-0 comeback against the rival New York Yankees we’ll surely never hear the end of. And that’s to be expected. The ’04 Red Sox will live in baseball lore, they deserve the be commemorated (and already have been) in Cooperstown via Curt Schilling’s Game 6 bloody sock and plenty more. Evidently that’s not enough. The three-time All-Star Varitek retired in 2011. That’s a decade ago. Yet, when the Sox tried to change Martin Perez’s number to Varitek’s No. 33, Jason’s wife wasn’t having any of it.

    Last month’s debate over whether to grant retired Army Gen. Lloyd Austin a waiver to serve as defense secretary may result in Congress considering whether the seven-year waiting period ought to be shortened, according to the top GOP member of the House Armed Services Committee. “Seven years is kind of arbitrary to me. I don't see the difference between seven and six or five or whatever,” said Alabama Rep. Mike Rogers, the committee’s ranking Republican, in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “There is some possibility we might take that up and this year in NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] and see if there's a more appropriate time frame.” In order to ensure civilian control of the military, under the National Security Act of 1947, Congress prohibited anyone from serving as defense secretary within 10 years of active duty service as a commissioned officer in the armed forces. That was...
