Boston College will be honoring Welles Crowther (Class of ’99) who died saving at least twelve people in the attacks on 9/11 by wearing red bandanna accented uniforms during their game against the USC Trojans this weekend.

Today of all days it’s especially important to remember the heroes who died and gave their lives on September 11, and (like many other stories) this tale and tribute coming from out of Boston College is a real tear jerker.

Welles was an off-duty volunteer firefighter working as an equities trader in the south tower when it was hit. In addition to his bravery and courage, Welles’ trademark was a red bandanna which he carried with him wherever he went. This is his story that I ask you watch:

There are many stories like Welles’–where heroes instinctively put the lives of others before their own–but for some reason this one hits me particularly hard this year.

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Final Season Premiere Breaks Ratings Record

mrusc96:

Looking forward to seeing this whole episode!

Originally posted on Variety:

FX drama “Sons of Anarchy” delivered monster — and series-high — ratings as it returned Tuesday night to kick off its seventh and final season, including the highest young-adult rating of any   entertainment series telecast since the spring.

While it’s FX’s policy to hold off releasing ratings highlights to the press until after at least three days’ worth of DVR playback can be included, the “live plus same-day” numbers are still released by Nielsen. And according to those estimates, “Sons” averaged a 3.2 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers overall — especially impressive considering that its long 110-minute run time meant it didn’t end until 11:50 p.m.

In both categories, Tuesday’s “Sons” return breaks the Kurt Sutter-created show’s previous record set with its sixth-season premiere a year ago (3.1 demo rating, 5.87 million), an episode that became the network’s No. 1-rated single telecast in history in “live…

Report: NFL Received Ray Rice Video in April

mrusc96:

Oops…commissioner Goodell, would you like to revise your statement?

Originally posted on Variety:

An NFL official received a copy of the Ray Rice assault video in April, a source has told the Associated Press, contradicting the testimony of league commissioner Roger Goodell.

The AP cites a “law enforcement official” who said he delivered the tape five months ago. The evidence is a 12-second voicemail from NFL headquarters confirming receipt of the video, in which an unnamed league executive characterizes the content as “terrible.”

The NFL reaffirmed to AP that no one in the organization had seen the video. The source did not specify whether any league exec had actually seen the video, only that it was in the possession of the league.

Following the release of the story, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello issued a statement. “We have no knowledge of this. We are not aware of anyone in our office who possessed or saw the video before it was made public on…
