Nebraska sheriff’s deputies issued criminal mischief citations to NINE children last week after they ran and jumped over fences in neighborhoods. It’s a trend that was apparently inspired by the Kool-Aid Man. It is a tendency for children to imitate the Kool-Aid Man by throwing themselves through structures onto people’s properties. There’s even Ring camera footage of a few teenagers running through a fence.
At least eight properties were affected, with damage estimated at several thousand dollars per home.
We don’t know if it was a stupid idea by THIS group of teenagers. . . or if it’s part of a larger social media trend.
Denver Broncos are currently on sale, and there are indications that the franchise could hit a record $5 billion. But that’s nothing compared to what Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks he could get for Team USA. The 79-year-old businessman told NBC Sports this week that he could sell the Cowboys for “over $10 billion”. Jones, however, added that he would not accept such an offer, insisting that he “will never sell the Cowboys” as long as he remains the owner.

Perhaps the biggest shock of the playoffs
Mavericks crush Suns at Pheonix 123-90 and will now face Warriors in Western Conference Finals
Match 1 Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. on TNT
It is now the fifth time Suns star Chris Paul has lost a series after leading 2-0, which includes collapsing in last year’s Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks. He is the only player with this dubious distinction in NBA history. Paul says he won’t be retiring and expects to be back for his 18th season next year.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson takes the offense in the Bahamas, where they’ll spend time bonding and working.
Going to the Bahamas will give the Browns offense a chance to get to know each other.
There are several new players in attack, so this kind of thing is necessary. Watson is joined by Amari Cooper, David Bell, Jakeem Grant, Jerome Ford and others as new team members. He’s secured ground for the offense to work on and put it all together. Don’t rely on the defense to do something similar. If that happens, someone like Myles Garrett or Denzel Ward would probably lead the charge.
NFL officials are due to meet Deshaun Watson this week to find out whether or not he violated the Code of Conduct policy
