MUST SEE: Little Jack Hoffman Is A Football Hero

Boy with cancer scores touchdown for Nebraska.

Jack is on a 2-week break from a 60-week chemotherapy regimen.

Seven year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman runs for a 69-yard touchdown in Nebraska's spring game yesterday in Lincoln.  The Nebraska football program just went up several notches in my book.  Hard not to get goosebumps watching this story.



ESPN covers the story:

Nebraska's Newest Football Star

Notice how he kicks into an extra gear at the 45 when he smells the end zone.

Jack was diagnosed with cancer in April 2011 and has had two surgeries.  Andy said Jack is "doing great" and that an MRI at Children's Hospital in Boston showed that the tumor has shrunk substantially in the past year.  "We're very optimistic for Jack."

Kick me in the nuts DB. Yea they passed that one and the gun bill and now my local board of commissioners have decided to extend our local airport to the tune of 50-75 mill. And for what, to attract new business? We just had a major parts manufacture close down the facility here because it was not cost effective. Small planes come out of here the CAP operates out of here and the occaisional knucklehead who flies close enough to Camp David gets escorted right over my house by at least two fighter jets which rattle the windows whereupon they are greeted at the runway by the local constabulary, summarily arrested and have their aviation liscense cut up right before their eyes. When asked by local citizenry about airports across the country that are our size that recieve fed dollars to expand after which tax payers are left to foot the bill for albatross effin airports, we were told what happens elsewhere is of no consequence. I would love to see the bank accounts of these toads to see how many zeros were added to their accounts. As to the driveway tax, most of my neighbors know nothing about this and are about to be surprised when they recieve the next tax bill. I have already gotten estimates to rip my driveway out and will have to wait til my wife goes on vacation with the kids to start that process. I may just punch holes in my roof to rid myself of these taxes. Shame too, as I just put a new roof on the house. Maybe I'll just go with a thatch roof instead as did my ancestors. Damn it . Either that or move. But we all know that ain't gonna happen. Hopefully this pic will post. This is the guy who changed his vote to allow for the expansion of the airport. Toadally awesome, if you get my drift. http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/opinion/other_voices/haven-shoemaker-frugal-not-foolish-government/article_4e00badb-2293-502b-9ab6-ccd5cd70e00a.html

NFL Commish Makes $29.5 Mil a Year– 15 Times More Than Tax Free Org Gives to Charity, More than CEOs of Ford, Heinz, FedEx


As the Super Bowl approaches New York much like a blizzard, here are some things to think about: in 2012, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was paid $29.5 million to run the organization. And that’s not all. The NFL, if you didn’t realize it, exists as a 501 c 6 organization. It’s not for profit!

In order to have that status, the NFL must be run as a charitable foundation. In 2012, they gave away a meager $2.3 million. Almost all of it–$2.1 million– went to the NFL Hall of Fame.

Goodell made 15 times what the group donated to other charities.

More crazy: Goodell’s salary is 1/10th of what the NFL claimed in total assets for 2012– $255 million.

Or even crazier: the NFL only made charitable donations equaling one-one hundredth of their annual income.

Here are the stats: The NFL’s most recent Form 990 filed with the IRS ended on March 31, 2012. They claimed revenue of $255 million, up from $240 million in 2011. So, if you were concerned, things are good. The NFL has assets of over $822 million.

Not to mention entire stadiums built that provide seasonal part time work.
