one. I come to you with something that is very rare these days: a feel-good story.
John Cena is already known for granting more Make-A-Wish requests than anyone else. Now, the WWE Superstar is literally helping save lives.
In 2019, Cena appeared on Nickelodeon’s hidden camera prank show, The substitute, where he was undercover as a CPR instructor named Mr. Barnes and taught children how to prevent someone from choking.
Cut to last week, when eight-year-old Jaxon Dempsey spotted her one-year-old sister Layla choking on a chicken nugget while riding in the back of her dad’s car.
According to Jaxon’s father, Layla’s face “was bright purple and red and” she wasn’t really breathing. “So Jaxon jumped into action.” I told my dad to stop and then I started patting him on the back and he escaped”. the young man said.
He claimed that he knew what to do watching Cena.
“I thought I was going to die, but then the scene came to my mind. I told my dad to stop and then I started patting him on the back. “
After the incident, Jaxon texted Cena: “Thank you for being on that show. It taught me a lot about how to save someone’s life. “
two. Never forget that when Kansas coach Roy Williams raged at CBS’s Bonnie Bernstein in 2003 after the Jayhawks lost to Syracuse in the NCAA men’s tournament because she asked him about going to North Carolina, and then in 2003 Williams He went from Kansas to North Carolina.
3. There was much talk today about the Chiefs’ proposal for a rule change that would allow running backs, wide receivers, linebackers and defensive backs to use single-digit numbers.
However, there is another proposed rule change that would have a much greater impact on the game. It says: “To amend Rule 6, Section 1, Article 1, to allow a team to maintain possession of the ball after a touchdown, substituting an offensive play (4th and 15 from the kicking team’s 25-yard line) for an attempted kickoff. “
I love this proposal. Inside kicks have proven useless. It would generate a lot more excitement from a team running a play from fourth and 15, and it could lead to many more wild comebacks, which is nothing but good for the game.
4. This could be the worst April Fool prank I’ve ever seen.
5. The Elite Eight was a ratings disaster for the NCAA men’s tournament.
