Thanks to his trademark pink-dyed dreadlocks, it’s almost impossible to forget about DeAngelo Williams’ battle. The Steelers running back also does plenty in the community to remind the world about his crusade against breast cancer.
This weekend will be another example, with the former Carolina Panthers star returning to Charlotte and offering up free mammograms to women.
From the Charlotte Observer:
Williams, through his foundation and the Charlotte Knights, will host an event Saturday providing mammography screenings for low-income, under-insured or uninsured women in the area.
But if it ever comes to that, the NFL won’t make history. Another national football organization already beat them to it. On Thursday, Pop Warner became the first national football organization to ban kickoffs.
The largest youth football organization in the country announced the change on Thursday. In its announcement, Pop Warner wrote that the rule is “aimed at significantly reducing the amount of full-speed, head-on impact in games.”
“We are constantly working to make the game safer and better for our young athletes, and we think this move is an important step in that direction,” said Jon Butler, Pop Warner’s executive director, via the organization’s website. “Eliminating kickoffs at this level adds another layer of safety without changing the nature of this great game. We are excited to look at the results at the end of the year as we explore additional measures.”
No. 2, let’s remember that Cromartie had a vasectomy in 2013. And now he’s the new father of twins.
That’s not how a vasectomy is supposed to work. There’s apparently a less than one-percent chance of getting pregnant after the operation.
“I didn’t even tell Antonio right away because I didn’t think it was possible,” Terricka told US Weekly in January. “I was going back and forth in my head how it could even happen. In my head we were good to go, we were having free sex. I just really thought that his procedure was the best protection you could have at this point.”
Montana then explained that Kaepernick’s biggest problem could come with his offensive line.
“With your offensive line, when there’s problems, you have to be able to talk to those guys and figure it out while you’re out on the field and when you have a guy who doesn’t really want to be there, you don’t know whether to put yourself behind him or not,” Montana said. “And you want to believe in him, but if he doesn’t want to be there then — I’m sure they did everything they could to try and get him to some place he’d be happy because it would be best for both teams.”
