LA Rams Become 1st NFL Team To Hire Male Cheerleaders

August 7, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

For the first time ever, an NFL team will have male cheerleaders dancing alongside the women next year. 

The L.A. Rams announced that it has hired two men, named Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies, to perform on its cheerleading squad. The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens have male stuntmen, but Peron and Jinnies are the first male dancers for a professional NFL team. They will round out the Rams’ regular team of 40 cheerleaders, playing both home and away games.

“I thought, ‘Why not me? Why can’t I do this?’ And called my friend and I asked her when auditions were for the Rams and she told me Sunday [March 11] and I showed up,” Peron told Good Morning America.

LA Rams cheerleader captain Emily Leibert said both men, who are a part of the 40-person cheer squad, “fit the bill to be a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader.”

“They are intelligent, they are eloquent, they are more than qualified to be ambassadors out in the community,” she said. “They bring so much energy and there’s something so magnetic about their performance, you really can’t take your eyes off them.”

July 30, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Story |

Her talent for sniffing out drugs has led to the capture of at least 245 people and the seizure of 9 tons of cocaine from the powerful Urabeños gang in Colombia.

But now Sombra, a 6-year-old German shepherd who is incredibly popular among children and adults alike, is in danger.

The Urabeños mafia has put a bounty of 200 million pesos ($70,000) on her head, according to Colombian police, so the dog had to be moved to Bogota’s El Dorado airport over fears for her safety.

“The fact they want to hurt Sombra and offer such a high reward for her capture or death shows the impact she’s had on their profits,” a police spokesperson told the Telegraph.

man calls cops after hard foul at basketball

A random pickup game at an LA Fitness in Sterling, Virginia ended with a police officer at the scene after a man allegedly called the cops because of a “hard foul.”

A spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Patch that a deputy was called to the gym Monday night. A manager at the LA Fitness in Dulles Town Center confirmed the incident happened on their courts.

Twitter user TrapMoneyBenny posted a photo of the ordeal around 8:40 p.m. Monday and said the man in the black shirt standing beside the officer had called authorities over getting “fouled hard.”

“Today for the first time in my life…I experienced someone call the police because they got fouled hard in basketball,” the tweet said.

“Dude falls down from what appears to be a ‘hard screen,’ TrapMoneyBenny tweeted. “Gets up tells everyone he calling the police.”

The harsh reaction left everyone confused, he added. The next thing everyone knows, the aggrieved player — who has not been identified — goes to the front desk and calls authorities.

“We thought he was joking til we saw buddy at the front desk on the phone really calling the police,” TrapMoneyBenny said.

A pride of hungry lions in a South African reserve just saved the day, at least for a herd of rhinos. The poachers, who had illegally entered that reserve with a gun and axe to kill those rhinos, were not so lucky.

The big cats mauled and killed at least two — possibly three — poachers, leaving behind just their bloodied and partly-eaten body parts, according to news reports.

Nick Fox, owner of the Sibuya Game Reserve said in a statement from the park:

“Sometime during the night of Sunday 1st and early hours of Monday 2nd July 2018, a group of at least three poachers entered Sibuya Game Reserve.

They were armed with, amongst other things, a high powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and had food supplies for a number of days – all the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns.”

“They were obviously poachers. The axe that was found on the scene is what is used to by these poachers to hack off the horn after they kill the animal,” Fox said.
