The NFL has rightfully been taking a lot of heat due to a couple of somewhat recent domestic violence cases. The league has done a very poor job handling some disgusting situations involving some players.
The league initially suspended Ray Rice for 2 games for punching/ knocking out his wife (then his fiance) in Atlantic City back in February. Only after TMZ released a video of the incident did his team the Baltimore Ravens release him and the NFL suspend him indefinitely. Continue reading Radisson Suspends Vikings Sponsorship→
I’ve heard stories of those fortunate enough to sit upfront on flights, trading their seats with members of the military but this story seems to be messed up in so many ways…

With the Super Bowl being held in the New York City area at MetLife Stadium, (home to the New York Giants & Jets) there are lots of free special events going on around the city.
Super Bowl Boulevard will take over Broadway from 34th to 47th Street from January 29 – February 1 from noon to 10 PM. There will be various free events going on, from kicking field goals to getting autographs during the event.
Check out a list of other Super Bowl related events in the NYC area HERE.

I’ve written about the American Airlines #AirTimeChallenge, a contest where you could win 25,000 AAdvantage Miles a couple of times in the past. There are only two dates left to enter and today happens to be one of them!
To enter the #AirTime Challenge you need to- “Guess the total amount of #AirTime- time the ball is in the air for completed Dallas passes” during Cowboys home games throughout the season.
(Total ball air time means the total time the football is in the air for completed offensive passes only, between two Dallas Cowboys players.)
While I haven’t had any luck with winning a prize, it’s still worth taking a guess and entering since all it takes is sending a tweet through Twitter.
