If you believe in karma, you along with the Vikings won on Sunday during the Minnesota's 29-24 miraculous comeback victory over the Saints in the NFC Divisional playoff. Saints coach Sean Payton turned around and taunted Vikings fans with a Skol clap at U.S. Bank Stadium after New Orleans took a 24-23 lead with 25 seconds left. It was first pointed out by former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber, who now works as an analyst for KFAN and Fox Sports, and corroborated by photo evidence on Twitter. Payton, addressing the media on Tuesday, did not deny his actions. "There was just a group of fans. It was good playoff fun," Payton told reporters. This was not long after Payton was also caught giving the universal "choke" gesture to the Falcons, referencing the 28-3 blown lead in the Super Bowl. The Saints also lost that game.

This season’s second-to-last Sunday of NFL competition comes this weekend and Tom Brady will be playing. That’s not exactly stunning. Brady has pretty much ended all debate about which quarterback is the greatest in pro football history. He and the New England Patriots will be playing in their seventh straight AFC championship game this weekend. But the quarterbacking company that Brady will keep this weekend is not exactly what anyone would have expected. It is, by the NFL’s customary late-January standards, pretty sketchy, actually. There’s not a Manning to be found. Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan were bounced from the playoffs this past weekend. Cam Newton exited a week earlier. Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson didn’t even make it. If you said going into the season that Blake Bortles, Case Keenum and Nick Foles would be starting the conference title games, you had it pegged.

I wasn’t looking for a serious relationship after I graduated high school, so I guess you could say that what we had was nothing more than a summer fling. At the end of the summer I would find myself on a hill, surrounded by farms in upstate New York. Inasmuch as I had learned about myself in those few months, I realized the true potential of Los Angeles when it comes to dating. It started when we decided to hike in Eaton Canyon after catching up at a party one night. “I’ll go hiking if you remember to text me tomorrow,” I told her, thinking she wouldn’t remember. The next morning, I woke up to a text: “Lol I remembered.” Great. Are you a veteran of L.A.'s current dating scene? We want to publish your story I picked her up and we drove through Altadena. The Spanish-revival homes conjured up early 20th century Los Angeles. An image appeared in my mind: Myself, an owner of a home with a red-tiled roof in Altadena, a wife, kids. The American … [Read more...] about Before I left for school back East, she sent me a text: She just wanted to be friends
