Lets all #fighthunger!
With the holiday and cold weather quickly approaching it is important that we take the time to think of others who are less fortunate. Fight Hunger is a national campaign aimed to aide in providing food for those who are in dire need. It is an excellent and creative campaign! The idea is to film one big fight sequence from Austin to Philadelphia. What a cool way to promote such an important cause! By the way, one of those stops is Baltimore! Check out their go fund me page here, and donate! They are also accepting canned goods! So raid your cupboards or hit the grocery store and then drop it all off at the WLOY station by November 24th! We are looking forward to seeing a huge pile! They also accept clothing!

It is such a simple question, but the answer is a lot more complex then yes or no.
Paying college athletes is an extremely complicated scenario because there are so many sports, schools, and conferences that distributing the money equally would be a nightmare.
However, I think that the resolution to this matter is fairly simple.
College athletics is a business and it comes down to which sports make the most amount of money for the NCAA.

For the first time since 1970, 5 NFL teams will be undefeated entering week 7. The Bengals, Broncos, Packers, Panthers, and Patriots are the lone remaining teams without a loss and all 5 of them have a legitimate chance of raising the Lombardi Trophy come February.
We know what Andy Dalton and company can do during the regular season, but the real question for the Bengals is, can they get the job done during the post-season? Dalton has made the playoffs in each of his first 4 years in the league however, he is 0-4 in the post-season. This is a different Bengals team. They are incredibly balanced on offense with a thunder and lightning rushing attack with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard, as well as a prolific passing attack featuring A.J Green. With the exception of the Ravens game, Green has been relatively quiet so far this season. It is the emergence of guys like Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones that have really added another dimension to this offense. Eifert specifically has been extremely effective in the red zone hauling in 6 touchdowns leading all tight ends. This Bengals team certainly has the weapons to keep up with the elite teams in the AFC. (more…)

The All- American Rejects album “Move Along” was an album that gave the group honorable popularity. Their pop album topped the charts leading with their singles “Dirty Little Secret”, “Move Along”, and “It Ends Tonight”. Their album touched on the topics of cheating on your significant other and also how when you are faced with tough situations in your life you have to face them and “Move along”.
The album started off with the lead singer finding out that his girlfriend has a “Dirty Little Secret”. He soon finds out that his girlfriends’ secret is that she is cheating on him but he is so in love with her that he offers to look past her cheating because he wants them to stay together. The album has a nice flow to it, with the lead singer finding out his girlfriend is cheating leading to the singer move on with his life. But at the end of the album the singer goes back to his girlfriend begging for her to come back. (more…)
