NFL Shows Off New Line Of Uniforms By Nike

When the new NFL season begins, teams will all have new uniforms as Nike has taken over production.  As you will read, the Seattle Seahawks used this opportunity change the overall look to their uniforms.  However, for most teams the changes not very noticeable.  The Vikings and Packers will look much as they did last year, although the fit and feel to the players is said to be improved.  I'm sure the teams are looking forward to fans wanting to own the new jerseys however.

Ticks Season Is Coming: They’ll Bug You This Spring

The weather hasn't been great lately, but it was enjoyable to have a record setting March across the Northland.  The good news was the warmth and sunshine.  The bad news was an early allergy season and now, an early tick season.

We are well trained in the area to be aware of ticks and the health risks they can cause if not found in a timely manner.  My mother suffered from Lyme Disease and

Katy Perry Shows Up For ‘Kids Event In Slimy Sports Bra Outfit

I remember when I was a kid in junior high and I thought Madonna was so hot (her and Susanna Hoffs from 'The Bangles').  She was provocative dressing in black fishnet outfits with lots of wristbands and big sunglasses.  Looking back and comparing her with what stars wear today, she looks Amish.

There has been only two successful gubernatorial recalls in United States history.  This is how a democracy is supposed to work, right?  Putting things ultimately into the hands of the people.  Or is there more at play in this situation?  I would love to hear your thoughts on whether you support this recall action!

 
Embattled first-term Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will face a recall this spring after an election was ordered Friday following the collection of more than

Coroner Says Whitney Houston Died From Drowning, But Cocaine And Heart Disease Contributed

Whitney always said she was her own worst enemy.  Sad that it could've been prevented had she been able to take control of her vices.  You'd hope it would send a message to young stars who are on this path, but history has proven otherwise.

 
Whitney Houston died from drowning in a hotel bathtub, but coroner's officials said Thursday that heart disease and chronic cocaine use were contributing factors to the singer's death.

Sean Payton Of New Orleans Saints Banned One Year For Bounties

Sean Payton's ban was only the beginning of the punishment.  I expected severe penalties for The New Orleans Saints for paying bounties to hurt players, but this is even more severe than I imagined.  That said, I think they fully deserve it all, especially since they first tried to cover it up before admitting what was going on.  What do you think of the punishment?

 
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended without pay for the 2012 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was banned indefinitely on Wednesday because the team's players were paid bounties for big hits on opponents from 2009-11.

The U.S. Postal Service wants small businesses to send more direct mail, a.k.a. junk mail, to help the beleaguered agency expand its revenue stream by hundreds of millions of dollars.

Warm Weather Means An Early Start To Allergy Season

If you suffer from allergies, this news is hardly a shock.  I never had any allergies until I got older, but last week my symptoms began.  Hopefully that means they will be over earlier this year too, right?

 
A mild winter that ended with a flourish of warm weather was a welcome surprise for many Americans. But for the 25 to 35 percent of people who suffer from hay fever, the early arrival of warm weather meant an unusually early start to allergy season.

Law Firm Fires 14 Employees For Wearing Orange Shirts

Stories like this drive me crazy.  Getting fired for wearing certain colored shirt?  Even if it was a protest, which it doesn't appear to be, who cares?  It's a shirt.  Usually, when a company flexes their muscle in such a way it reveals a major interpersonal weakness on their behalf.

 
They weren't wearing sagging pants or revealing clothing. But dressing in an orange shirt is apparently enough to get fired at one Florida law firm, where 14 workers were unceremoniously let go last Friday.

Former Packer Backup Matt Flynn Agrees To Deal With Seattle
