Greetings good citizens!
Last night, the Kansas City Chiefs hosted the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. It would be an understatement to say that the NFL has been having a bad couple of months.
To add excitement to the game, there was a controversial call by referees involving muslim player Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah. Abdullah was penalized after kneeling down in Muslim prayer after scoring a touchdown. His team was given a fifteen yard penalty for "going to ground" during what the NFL officials considered an "excessive celebration". So a slide and a prayer gets the team a penalty.
Other players often drop to their knees to pray on the field. I don't know if anyone remembers, but a couple of years ago Tim Tebow was doing almost the exact same gesture. What's the big deal?
Did you watched the game last night?
On a different note, as predicted a few weeks ago, we have the first case of ebola in the United States. A man being treated at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas has tested positive for the deadly virus after arriving from Liberia on Sept. 20.
Didn't African countries were supposed to be screening everyone at the airports?
Now Health officials are desperately trying to locate others who may have come in physical contact with him while focusing in on the patient's family and a couple of specific individuals in his community.
Heaven help us all.
