Tom Brady’s $50 snack packages sell out in just one day
METAIRIE, La. — Sean Payton said he doesn’t follow fantasy football, but that didn’t stop him from giving the ultimate fantasy endorsement to rookie New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Carroll lauded friend and Washington-bred rapper Ben Haggerty, aka Macklemore, for showcasing his Monarchs on his Snapchat account and, more importantly, for picking them over Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry’s polarizing “Chef Curry” shoes.
Carroll expressed his affection for Curry’s sneakers — which, like the Air Monarchs, are dubbed as “dad shoes” on social media — a few months ago, yet he remains loyal to the old-school, all-white lowtops he calls “Air Paternos.”
The stadium has hosted three events already, as a Chelsea-AC Milan friendly and concerts from Luke Bryan and Metallica have functioned as soft openings of sorts before the Vikings move in. As such, we’ve put together this user’s guide for the stadium, based on tours we’ve taken of the facility, some suggestions from the Vikings and the reviews all of you submitted this week on Twitter and Facebook.
Two general themes emerged from what many of you said about the stadium: Aesthetically, it’s as impressive as the Vikings and architect HKS hoped it would be, with natural light streaming through the clear roof, ideal sight lines and striking views of downtown Minneapolis through the glass doors on the west side of the stadium. And logistically, it’s a work in progress.
Donald Brown was released by the Patriots on Tuesday, a source told ESPN. Brown signed a one-year, $965,000 contract with the Patriots
Brown entered the NFL as a first-round draft choice of the Indianapolis Colts, playing five years with them before spending the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the San Diego Chargers.
By releasing him, the Patriots thin their ranks at a position that was already short on depth. Blount is the top power option, while third-year man James White projects to step in for Lewis as the top “passing back” until his return. The team also has Brandon Bolden (5th year), Tyler Gaffney (3rd year), Joey Iosefa (2nd year) and undrafted rookie D.J. Foster at running back.
In addition to releasing Brown, the Patriots also informed defensive tackle Frank Kearse and cornerback E.J. Biggers of their releases. Both were long shots to make the roster.
