The Packers and the Bears first met in 1921, when the Bears were the Staleys, the N.F.L. was the A.P.F.A., and F. Scott Fitzgerald was 25 years old. A trainload of 300 Packers fans, joined by a brass band in woodsman costumes (the Cheeseheads came later), traveled to Chicago to watch the 20-0 loss. Pete Stinchcomb opened the scoring with a 45-yard touchdown, then Pard Pearce set up a second score with that pinnacle of 1920s innovation, a forward pass, to Dutch Sternaman.
“After several wallops at the line Pard Pierce finally bucked through for a touchdown on a quarterback plunge,” read a newspaper account of the game. Oddly enough, the Bears used the same series of plays against the Seahawks last Sunday.
When a patient learns of a mesothelioma diagnosis, the questions that often follow may concern typical survival rates for mesothelioma patients. Can I become a survivor? In general, approximately 10 percent of mesothelioma patients will live for at least five years after they are diagnosed with the cancer. According to medical research, the average survival for a mesothelioma patient is approximately four to 18 months after diagnosis.
Understanding the average mesothelioma survival rate can be complicated because various factors influence the data. Survival rate may be influenced by the level of the cancer’s development (stage), the size of the tumor, whether or not surgery may be preformed and the age and general health of the patient, among other contributing conditions.
Roger Goodell just announced suspensions…wait a minute this isn’t that league! This is the Lingerie Football League and when the the Tampa Breeze and the Miami Caliente of the LFL play things always get heated. It’s a bitter rivalry and their most recent game didn’t disappoint. Tempers flared and the game ended with a brawl.
However, in all seriousness, there are some wild haymakers in this video and from the looks of it, a coach even got involved.
I must say, given some of the sorry fistacuffs we often see from their male counterparts in the NFL, NBA, and MLB, it’s good to know the ladies are willing to thrown down on command. No word on whether suspensions will be handed out, although I’ll take a wild guess and say the LFL commish is more than happy for the publicity, even if it’s somewhat negative.
The Big Ten Conference today made several announcements that complete a series of decisions prompted by the upcoming addition of the University of Nebraska – Lincoln as the conference’s 12th member school. The conference revealed a new logo to be used for all sports beginning with the 2011-12 academic year and also unveiled names for its two football divisions and a list of names for 18 trophies to honor coaches, teams and student-athletes starting with the 2011 football season.
“When we announced football division alignments in September, other associated decisions had not yet been made. We wanted to take some time to listen, carefully consider, and make choices that would best honor our history and traditions, reflect our core values and characteristics, and tell our story,” said Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany. “We involved many thoughtful, dedicated professionals and we listened to many ideas from our member schools, alumni and fans.”

Doctors Nat and Kat are your “Amazing Race” Season 17 winners.
At the start of the last leg, the pairs left within roughly 30 minutes of each other, so it really was anybody’s game going into the final stretch. They flew to Los Angeles, more specifically the pier at Long Beach.
There they had to ride a bungee swing in order to get the next clue. It was awesome, like bungee jumping but not quite as scary. During the bungee swing, Nat said, “I didn’t even pee my pants.” We’re sad that wasn’t the episode title.
PORT BARRE, La. (AP) — A tractor-trailer slammed into a school bus that had its lights flashing and stop signs extended, critically injuring three children and hurting the other 18 and both drivers, Louisiana State Police said Friday.
The bus driver — who also is a town mayor — and the trucker both had minor injuries, said Trooper Stephen Hammons. Most of the children, ranging in age from 5 to 17, had minor to moderate injuries, while two of those critically injured were ages 5 and 15, Hammons said.
The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on a straight, clear stretch of U.S. 190 between Port Barre and Opelousas, about 50 miles west of Baton Rouge.
