Kobe Bryant's wife, Vanessa, is excited — and this time it isn't because of a $4 million diamond "apology" ring.
On the heels of Kobe Bryant's shocking NBA retirement announcement on Sunday, which rocked the Internet, Vanessa Bryant expressed her excitement for what is to come.
The basketball wife and mother of two took to Instagram Sunday to share a heartfelt message to her husband. "You mean so much to us all," she wrote. "I'm so excited to see what God has in store for us as a family now that one chapter is closing and new ones are opening." more >>
There are many reasons why Canada and the United States are allies and friends. Similar culture, similar history, and a great love of bacon.
As though there were not enough reasons for the love, another was shown last year at a hockey game in the Great White North.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West wasn't in the team's lineup Sunday in their 30-22 win against the Buffalo Bills. The team announced earlier that West won't be playing because of a hamstring injury that bothered him all week long, though he was initially listed as "questionable" in the final injury report.
Meanwhile, another Kansas City player, tight end Travis Kelce, was able to play in the same game after being listed as questionable after nursing ankle and groin injuries.
In place of West in the starting lineup was Spencer Ware, who is coming from a stint in the team's practice squad after Jamaal Charles went out for the season due to another injury. The same player substituted West last Sunday against San Diego, eventually leading his team by producing 96 rushing yards, as well as two touchdowns. more >>
Last week's bunch of NFL games saw one that could have placed the St. Louis Rams in a lot of trouble, when quarterback Case Keenum appeared to have been seriously hurt after sustaining a head injury. In most instances when a player gets hit on the head or appears to be injured in the head due to a play, his team would usually take him off the field. But that didn't happen in the Rams' game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The league has a strict concussion protocol designed to protect players from serious and even life-threatening injuries to the head, and the Rams almost crossed the line. Adam Schefter reported through ESPN that the team escaped the penalty for mishandling the incident.
There was no official word or statement as to why the Rams won't get penalized or punished after failing to get Keenum out of the field. It was seen that a trainer went to the field to do a check on the quarterback but he obviously did not remove him in order to be subjected to an official concussion evaluation, something the NFL has been quite strict since the protocol was created and implemented. more >>
St. Louis Rams receiver Stedman Bailey is battling for his life after being shot twice in the head during a drive-by shooting in Miami last Tuesday, and early reports came in saying that the third-year NFL player was in critical condition. The good news is that Rams head coach Jeff Fisher revealed on Friday that Bailey is "expected to survive" from the wounds he got from the shooting.
This certainly is good news for Rams fans who are still shocked with what happened. Bailey immediately underwent surgery after the incident and will miss the remaining games of the season. Fisher revealed that the receiver is doing great after surgery in his interview with "Sirius XM Radio." However, the coach also said that Bailey will be spending several days in intensive care because of the seriousness of his condition and that the 25-year-old almost died as a result of his wounds.
