Chicago is the Windy City, we all know, but apparently some of that wind is coming out of the mouths of still furious Bears fans who are still sending death threats to Bears place kicker Cody Parkeyfor missing that one kick that could have won the game and sent the team to the next round of the playoffs.
Parkey and his family have been fielding death threats since his disastrous, game-losing, bungled field goal during last Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
As the game clock wound down, the Bears were down by only a single point, and kicker Parkey had that one shot to win the game with a last-second field goal attempt. But as Parkey, his teammates and fans were crushed when the ball bounced uselessly off the uprights and failed to earn the points needed. It was his seventh such failed kick for the season, but the most consequential. Later analysis noted that an Eagles player had managed to get a tip on the ball, just enough to cause it to miss.

The Eagles won 16-15 and the big W sent them to the next round of the playoffs.
Now the Bears will go into winter quarters, instead of the Super Bowl.
The 26-year-old Parkey did not try to shift the blame. After the game, he took full responsibility for the missed goal. “I feel terrible,” he told the media.

It was definitely a heartbreaker for Chicago. But while the Bears went into Winter vacation, some fans went into overdrive with threats against Parkey for the loss, according to FanBuzz.
Parkey’s kick was both the game-loser and the season-ender for the Bears, and, apparently, some fans are furious enough to let the player just how mad they are.
Now, be prepared. Many of these Tweets are very violent and filled with hate. Language warning:

Someone needs to kill Cody parkey

But, in the end, after all the attacks the player withstood, it turns out that the play was re-classified as a block as game video shows that a member of the Eagles was able to get a hand on the ball causing it to veer off course and miss the goal.

Petty New Paperback Aims to Expose Trump as Cheater…in Golf
Given the current state of our nation, the President’s golf habits seems like an entirely silly thing to write a book about.
As 2019 grinds forward, preparing to make way for yet another tumultuous election season, it seems that anything is fair game in the realm of mudslinging against our President. This shouldn’t be seen as a wholly new phenomenon, however, as Donald Trump has been in the crosshairs of a number of schemes and scams aimed at detracting from his presidency, or calling the legitimacy of it into question. RussiaGate was merely the most obtuse and most widely reported bit of “resistance” schtick out there, but a whole myriad of other attempts to delegitimize and embarrass the President have been ongoing for some time. The latest, and maybe the pettiest of these attacks is now upon us in the form of an entire book about the ways in which the President cheats at golf. From pulling a fast one on Tiger Woods to exaggerating his handicap, Donald Trump’s alleged misdeeds on and around the golf course are the subject of a new book by former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.” Reilly documents dozens of examples of underhanded golf behavior by the president, transgressions talked about by pro golfers and duffers alike. “In golf, he’s definitely not exonerated,” Reilly told The Associated Press. “There’s been dozens and dozens of people that can declare him guilty of cheating.” What can someone expect from such a misguided missive? One infamous instance came in a 2017 round with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, who is the current No. 1 player in the world. The president’s playing partner, Fox Sports golf analyst Brad Faxon, reported that Trump’s offenses included putting down a score that didn’t account for two balls he hit into the water on one hole. “You’ve heard so much about it, it’s almost like you want to witness…
LeBron James Discovers that Michael Jordan is STILL the GOAT in the Public’s Eyes
…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.
LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close. James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon. But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT. As Business Insider noted: Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best. Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements. But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle. The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status. Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry. Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.
