The Rams-Steelers game today in St. Louis was delayed today after pregame pyrotechnics set the artificial turf on fire. The fire extinguisher left skin irritants all over the field and the start was pushed back to vaccuum it all up. Good way to slow down Le’Veon Bell!
Whether this deal had already been planned, or is meant to distract from Amazon’s interesting weekend, I don’t know. What I do know is that $69 is the cheapest price they’ve ever offered on a Fire HD tablet, and a hell of a deal for anyone who could use an extra screen in their arsenal.…
Like most players during far-flung preseason tours, Manchester City’s players don’t want to be where they are right now. Unfortunately for Vietnamese fans hoping to enjoy their heroes’ visit, the players aren’t too good at hiding their disinterest, either. This apathy pissed off one fan enough to even set his tickets…
NASCAR’s Alex Bowman burst into flames on the track today:
Amazon's Fire tablets have been surprisingly well-received given their bargain basement prices, and several of the most popular models are getting their first discounts since the holiday shopping season today.
If you've been procrastinating on your holiday shopping, and need to pick up a new e-reader, tablet, or streaming box, today's almost certainly going to be your last chance to save on an array of Amazon gadgets before Christmas.

Yesterday, a giant, still under-construction apartment complex in Houston caught on fire. The flames spread quickly, and one unlucky construction worker found himself trapped on a balcony off the building's top floor. A worker at a neighboring office captured his daring escape—he was forced to leap from one floor's…
The Bellevue fire department tweeted out this picture earlier today and according to local news outlets, the home belongs to Felix Hernandez.
The woman who seems totally unconcerned with the flames licking her feet is named Beverly Bernardi Post. She is a legend of sorts in Topeka, Kansas baton-twirling circles and according to reader Jim, she was the "featured baton twirler" for Kansas in the 70s. Now she is lighting high school football fields on fire.
No one was injured, and the fire never spread beyond the light tower up in right field, so go ahead and laugh!
Upon reaching the finish line in something called the NHRA "Winternationals" today, Antron Brown was going around 300 mph when his 8,000 horsepower engine exploded, causing his two back tires to also explode. He then lost control of the car as it burst into flames and careened into the wall. It then bounced off the…
Tony Pedregon, NHRA Funny Car champion in 2007, ran into some slight difficulty in his race against Todd Lesenko on Friday in Pomona when his car blew up. (Lesenko knows how it is.) Funny cars are sort of designed to explode without incident—it's not hard to find stories about engines going up in flames the way…

In the past few weeks, four people have called 911 to report a fire.
