To be added
With all the problems in this country the, U.S. "Kangaroo" Court of Appeals upholds "deflate-gate" suspension, the Federal Judges are now concerned about “air in a football“???
Some NFL coaches are terrible, some okay, some good, NE Patriots seems to have the smartest of the bunch, no doubt one the best coaches ever.
So the Supreme Court found "Gay Marriage" in the U.S. Constitution but it can't find a "baby's right to life" - how strange is that!!!
