A college student who recently accused Houston Texans running back Arian Foster of pressuring her to have an abortion now seems to be backtracking on her statements, saying in a taped conversation with Foster that the NFL player "never harassed [her]."
Brittany Norwood, a senior at the University of Houston, made national headlines last week when she filed a lawsuit against Foster, claiming the professional football player impregnated her in 2013 and then "constantly harassed [her] to get an abortion for the child." Norwood also claimed to have been unaware that Foster is already married with children when she and the football player first became intimate. Norwood's lawsuit was filed earlier in January, and now a Houston Judge ordered both Norwood and Foster to respect mutual restraining orders against each other while the case plays out in court.

Heading into Sunday's NFL playoff game against the New England Patriots, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning explains the meaning of his audible "Omaha" to a group of reporters.
Although the explanation left some people still in the dark, it was reported that Broncos fans that happen to be legal pot smokers totally understood what Peyton was getting at and plan to serve as game analysts at a Hunter Thompson game-viewing party held somewhere in the Rocky Mountains... high.more >>
Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers may have a 14-25 record, but the All-Star veteran guard is pushing his body to return from injury to help his team despite people like Magic Johnson cautioning him not to do so.
Bryant, the 35-year-old Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard, returned to the basketball court in early December 2013 for the first time since having Achilles tendon surgically repaired last April. After injuring his knee which has left him off the court in recent weeks, Bryant has denied that he returned to his professional sport from injury too early.
Magic Johnson, the popular Hall Of Fame Lakers point guard who is fond of Bryant, has insisted that the injured star should stay off the court for the rest of the season and not risk more injury during a losing season. more >>
Jesus Christ is better than anything, including the Super Bowl, said an assistant coach for the Seattle Seahawks during a recent videotaped interview with Mars Hill Church Pastor Mark Driscoll, as four of the team's players, including quarterback sensation Russell Wilson, appeared to nod in agreement.
"Literally, Jesus is the greatest treasure in the universe," said Rocky Seto, who is on the Seahawks coaching staff. "It just makes sense. It's not like you give up your life and then you get something worse. He gave us everything. We had nothing, He gave us everything, so literally it's just one plus one equals two, it's that simple. Jesus is better than anything… even better than the Super Bowl, better than an NFL career, any of that."
In a video (see below) released Friday on the Resurgence website, a resource network for Christian leaders, Driscoll said that the Seahawks, who will be playing the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday for a chance to be in the Super Bowl, are the "greatest team on earth." more >>
Human trafficking for labor and sex, considered a worldwide epidemic, is of such heightened concern for this year's Super Bowl that one Catholic social activism group has trained more than 400 volunteers to canvas the New York and New Jersey region during the week-long extravaganza to raise awareness. Other groups, including churches, are taking aim at the problem as well.
In another instance of action against the form of modern-day slavery, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale in Florida, is using the month of January, tagged Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and coupled with their own Super Bowl efforts to encourage Christians to join a team planning to meet in Brazil for the World Cup.
"You've read the devastating statistics (An estimated 27 million are enslaved in the world today; Approximately 80 percent of human trafficking victims are women and are children (boys and girls); human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world-second only to drug trafficking.)," states Calvary Chapel on its website. "But did you know that this epidemic is running rampant at one of the largest sporting events in the world? more >>
