    A REDDIT user claimed they received $1,800 in stimulus checks that they weren't entitled to after submitting their tax return wrong. The unnamed taxpayer, 20, says they made an error when submitting their W2 form in February 2020 - a month before Covid was declared a pandemic and the first round of stimulus checks were introduced. 1A taxpayer claimed they received $1,800 in stimulus checks after making an error on their W-2 formCredit: Getty Employers are required to send out the W-2 form, known as the Wage and Tax Statement, by January 31, which gives workers around two months to complete before tax returns are due. The Reddit user said: "When I filed taxes, I mistakenly clicked that I was not a dependent." They claimed they received $1800 in stimulus payments in total by December. The user added: “I suppose the government just saw my initial tax filing and put me on the list for stimulus checks. “I was afraid they were going to ask for the $1200 back but I just received the second $600 today.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade set to welcome back crowds this year, expect to see a heightened police presence. Thousands of officers will be on hand Thursday to make sure the holiday tradition stays safe, CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas reported Wednesday. READ MORE: Preview Of The Macy's Thanksgiving Day ParadeIt will be the type of security you’d expect to see, but the NYPD says there will be so much more going on behind the scenes to keep people safe. The return of the beloved Macy’s balloon inflation celebration was a welcome sign for residents and visitors alike. “It feels great. We’re very happy that things are starting to open up again,” said Nathan Carleton of Sacramento, California. “It feels good to get things sort of back to normal and all, so I’m happy with it,” added Brian Bubenik of upstate Warwick. Masks and vaccine cards were new requirements this year. Street closures started at 7 a.m. Wednesday, as barriers kept traffic away from the large crowds.

    SMILING for the camera, Amanda Knox couldn't stop showing off her baby bump throughout her pregnancy - even releasing a podcast about her emotional journey. But since giving birth to her baby daughter, Eureka, earlier this year, the 34-year-old says the joys of motherhood have been overshadowed by vicious trolling over the death of her former friend, Meredith Kercher. 5Amanda Knox has complained how during motherhood she has been vilified by trollsCredit: Instagram @amamaknox 5Amanda married poet husband Christopher Robinson last year In 2009, Amanda was caged for four years after Meredith, a 21-year-old Leeds University student, was found with multiple stab wounds in Perugia, Italy. The American had lived with Kercher in a student flat and was found guilty of her murder alongside Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, 37, and later drifter Rudy Guede, 34. Both Amanda and Raffaele were acquitted in 2011 - while it was revealed today that Guede has completed his sentence early. Since 2011, Amanda has built a new life in Seattle alongside her husband, poet Christopher Robinson, whom she quietly married in 2018 before controversially...
     John Oliver ended his season of Last Week Tonight on Sunday, marking the occasion by brutally mocking Capitol rioter Jenna Ryan, who once claimed she’d never go to jail because of her “blonde hair” and “white skin.” Marking an ending, Oliver began by reminding his viewers that this year started with the January 6 attack on the Capitol, cracking, “That’s right, this year started with that and against all better judgment, kept going.” The host then offered developments on those who stormed the Capitol, specifically mentioning Texas real estate agent Jenna Ryan, whom he also mocked for sounding like a member of the Real Housewives. “Definitely not going to jail. Sorry I have blonde hair white skin a great job a great future and I’m not going to jail. Sorry to rain on your hater parade. I did nothing wrong,” Ryan posted in March, replying to a Twitter user who guessed she would be sentenced in connection to the insurrection. Definitely not going to jail.

    New York (CNN Business)Confused about inflation? You're not alone.Inflation is, paradoxically, both incredibly simple to understand and absurdly complicated. Let's start with the simplest version: Inflation happens when prices broadly go up. That "broadly" is important: At any given time, the price of goods will fluctuate based on shifting tastes. Someone makes a viral TikTok about brussels sprouts and suddenly everyone's gotta have them; sprouts prices go up. Meanwhile sellers of cauliflower, last season's trendy veg, are practically giving their goods away. Those fluctuations are constant. Americas prices are surging more than they have in 30 yearsInflation is when the average price of virtually everything consumers buy goes up. Food, houses, cars, clothes, toys, etc. To afford those necessities, wages have to rise too. Read MoreIt's not a bad thing. In the United States, for the past 40 years or so (and particularly this century), we've been living in an ideal low-and-slow level of inflation that comes with a well-oiled consumer-driven economy, with prices going up around 2% a year, if that. Sure, prices on some things, like housing...

    Sunday, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) pledged to fight for what she described as “essential” infrastructure as Democrats continue to hammer out the details of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. “This is the time,” Pressley declared on MSNBC’s “Velshi.” “And if we’re really serious about building back better, I mean, if we’re really serious about this reckoning on racial injustice, this is a gender justice issue. This is a racial justice issue.” Pressley said she would “stay at the table and keep fighting until the ink is dry.” She advised that passing this  wide-ranging legislation is “personal” for her in addition to “millions of families.” “We can take care of everyone. There is not a deficit of resources. There is only a deficit of empathy,” she explained. “I’m going to stay at the table and keep fighting until the ink is dry,” Pressley added. “This is the moment.” Pressley went on to say she was still working on getting provisions in the bill because “care is infrastructure.” “It is really demoralizing that we have to fight this hard,” she added....
    Peter Chang has a comfortable life — a good income from real estate investments in Oakland and San Francisco, and a home for his family in a tony Lafayette neighborhood. But when it comes to his approaching retirement, 50-year-old Chang views his prospects in the overpriced Bay Area as bleak. He wants to give up the life he built here and retire in Taiwan, where he’s originally from. “I don’t think in retirement I can afford this,” he said. “I’m going to have to move away – and I’m actually wealthy. It’s hard to keep up with the rising costs here.” Despite the gorgeous weather, stunning views and top-notch food and entertainment offerings, half of Bay Area residents say the region is a poor place to retire, according to a recent poll by the Bay Area News Group and Joint Venture Silicon Valley. During the COVID-19 pandemic, not having enough money to retire, as well as a general lack of savings, were residents’ top two financial worries — overshadowing concerns about debt, paying for rent or a mortgage, and affording...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Coach Pat Narduzzi isn’t comfortable. Not even with No. 17 Pittsburgh off to its best start since Narduzzi’s first year on the job in 2015. Maybe he’s forgotten what happened during the end of that first season. Or maybe he’s blocked it out because he doesn’t have the bandwidth. The Panthers (6-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are riding a four-game winning streak into Saturday’s visit by injury-ravaged Miami (3-4, 1-2) and have stamped themselves as the clear Coastal Division favorite after beating Clemson last Saturday. Though Narduzzi institutes a “24-hour rule” after each game that gives his players and staff a window to either celebrate a win or grapple with a loss, his window is much narrower. Even after a decisive victory over ACC royalty. “I will go home (after games and) my kids are, ‘Dad, why are you not happy?’” Narduzzi said. “Because I know what’s on the horizon, what’s coming into Heinz Field Saturday at noon.” Namely, a team that may have started to figure things out in a thrilling upset over North...
    Q: I absolutely agree with retired CHP officer Gary Lofgren, who is critical of the “move over” law requiring drivers to move over or slow down if they see vehicles on the side of the highway with their emergency lights on. Gary hit the nail on the head when he stated the obvious. Anything other than continuing straight ahead might go wrong, adding to the risk. If you do nothing but go straight ahead, doing the expected, there is much less chance of a surprise. The law might make sense on a lightly traveled rural road, but not on busy freeways. Bob Lipp, Los Gatos A: Many others agree, but not all, like Ray-the-Tow-Truck-Guy. Q: I like the law, but few obey or know or care about it. When I travel in other states, I notice most drivers obey the law. I move away from any hazard as best I can and always display my lights when stopped in hazardous areas. They say that the lights attract drunks, but I’m more worried about the guy who’s watching a movie while smoking...
    Dave lauded Bongino's tough stance, saying, "Dan Bongino is a good man. I'm proud, I'm happy to call him a friend. Somebody is standing up. He's not saying don't get the vaccine. He's saying you've got to do what's right for you, just as he did for himself. And he is saying he will put his butt on the line." He added, "We need more people who will not participate in the lie, the lie that our freedoms have to be eroded, that they have to keep taking more from us and keep making us bow so that we will be safe. That is not how this thing was supposed to work, and if you if you think it's working now, I think you're sorely mistaken. It's not working.

    Shannen Doherty is facing cancer head-on. The "Charmed" actress, 50, addressed her battle with stage 4 cancer during a Monday appearance on "Good Morning America" and said she’s busy "living life" as if she isn’t fighting for her life. "I never want to operate [like I’m dying]," said Doherty. "I just want to operate as I don’t have things to check off because I’m going to keep fighting to stay alive." The "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum pressed that she never lives like she has a "bucket list" to check off simply because she feels she can prove she’ll beat her cancer diagnosis and doesn’t want the sympathy that comes with such an announcement. SHANNEN DOHERTY OPENS UP ABOUT LIVING WITH CANCER: 'I NEVER REALLY COMPLAIN' "A lot of people who get diagnosed with Stage 4, they sort of get written off. It’s assumed that they cannot work or they can’t work at their full capacity, and that is not true," Doherty said, adding that she finds work "more fulfilling" now than ever. "That is something that I would really like...

    Brian Laundrie search: FBI again visits home of Gabby Petitos fiancé amid ongoing search UN official says Myanmars people are in a severe crisis © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Running back Saquon Barkley had 22 touches in last Sunday’s loss to the Falcons and that marked the second week in a row where his workload grew from where it was in the season opener. While Barkley is touching the ball more often, the results still aren’t where Barkley was during the first couple of years of his career. He’s averaging 3.4 yards per carry and 6.2 yards per reception, but Barkley said on Thursday that he isn’t getting discouraged by the level of production. Barkley said he can see “how much better of a player I am already” from were he was in Week One and that he believes that will continue to be the case the more that he is on the field this season. “People probably do expect me to come out here and jump over people...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Kudlow,” Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) stated that the testimony of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Commander of United States Central Command Gen. Frank McKenzie that they advised keeping troops on the ground in Afghanistan matches earlier testimony in a classified briefing by the former commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan Gen. Scott Miller, and there are now three high-ranking generals contradicting President Joe Biden’s claim that he wasn’t advised to keep troops Cramer said Milley and McKenzie’s statements are “consistent with what Gen. Scotty Miller told the committee in a classified briefing a couple of weeks ago. So, you’ve got now three four-star generals basically saying, no, it was not unanimous.” Cramer then discussed why he thinks Biden isn’t telling the truth about the advice he was given, stating, “There [are] a couple of things: One of the possibilities is that Joe Biden doesn’t really know what’s going on. I think that’s a very high possibility, that he sort of sees the world the way he wishes...
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley got into a heated exchange with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) over the advice he gave President Biden on troop levels in Afghanistan – with Milley rejecting the idea he should resign over policy differences. Milley, who holds degrees from Princeton, Columbia, and the Navy War College, and who commanded international forces in Afghanistan, bristled at the idea – even as he essentially confirmed he advised Biden against a withdrawal of all US troops from the country. 'I understand that you're the principle military advisor. That you advise. You don't decide, the president decides. But if this is all true, Gen. Milley, why haven't you resigned?' asked Cotton, who was deployed as an Army officer in Afghanistan during his military career. 'My dad didn't get a choice to resign at Iwo Jima, and those kids there at Abbey Gate, they don't get a choice to resign,' Milley told him, referring to the troops guarding the Kabul airport during the evacuation last month even after a terror attack killed 13 US troops....
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican senators blocked a bill to keep the government operating and allow federal borrowing, but Democrats aiming to avert a shutdown pledged to try again — at the same time pressing ahead on President Joe Biden’s big plans to reshape government. The efforts are not necessarily linked, but the fiscal yearend deadline to fund the government past Thursday is bumping up against the Democrats’ desire to make progress on Biden’s expansive $3.5 trillion federal overhaul. It’s all making for a tumultuous moment for Biden and his party, with consequences certain to shape his presidency and the lawmakers’ own political futures. Success would mean a landmark accomplishment, if Democrats can helm Biden’s big bill to passage. Failure — or a highly unlikely government shutdown and debt crisis — could derail careers. “You know me, I’m a born optimist,” Biden told reporters Monday, as he rolled up his sleeve for a COVID-19 booster shot. “We’re gonna get it done.” Monday’s 50-48 vote against taking up the bill fell well short of the 60 needed to proceed over a GOP...

    FORMER Blackburn star Morten Gamst Pedersen has extended his career at the age of 40 by starring for third-tier Norwegian side Alta. The midfielder decided to return to his roots in his home county of Finnmark despite offers from bigger clubs - and is still chipping in with spectacular set-pieces. 1Morten Gamst Pedersen was a big hit during his nine years at Ewood ParkCredit: Action Images - Reuters The town of Alta is home to 20,000 hardy souls who live through frozen winters some 400km inside the Arctic Circle.

But Pedersen is loving the chance to carry on playing, over nine years after his final Premier League appearance. He told Norwegian outlet Fotmob: "I love to play football, that’s the thing.

    West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) expressed frustration with his state’s vaccination rate, warning constituents that people are either going to get inoculated against COVID-19, or “we’re going to keep lining the body bags.”  Justice made the comments during a COVID-19 news briefing on Friday, during which he implored West Virginians to get vaccinated. He said that 74 people had died in the state since Wednesday. “Unfortunately, today we have an overwhelming amount of deaths: 74 people died. Seventy-four more people have died since Wednesday,” Justice said. “And they’ll keep dying. That’s all there is to it,” he continued. “We just are going to keep lining the body bags up, and we’re going to line them up and line them up.” The governor’s grim comments comes as the state deals with a surge in coronavirus infections following early success in rolling out vaccinations. The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources reported 2,320 new coronavirus infections on Friday, as well as 57 deaths. There were total 29,744 current active cases of coronavirus in the state as of Friday. According...

    The unofficial Burning Man festival kicked off this weekend in style with neon raves and huge fantastical floats and art cars at Nevada's Black Rock Desert - even after organizers cancelled the official event over COVID-19 fears. Tens of thousands reportedly showed up this weekend complete with techno-hippie garb in the spirit of the event. In-person visitors took to social media to document their experiences from their wacky outfits to music concerts complete with laser beams and other vibrant effects.   The last official ticketed Burning Man, which took place in 2019, drew nearly 80,000 festival-goers, known as 'burners' to the desert.  Some renegades decided to take matters into their own hands after the event got canceled in April by setting up the 'Plan B' event - and Renegade Man was born.  A lit-up 'burning man' radiating red colored lights out onto the crowd  A tall representation of the Burning Man sits against the back drop of the orange sky in The Black Rock Desert  Laser beams and lighting effects amped up in-person festival visitors  Mad Max...

    'I can't resist it. Every time the sex is over, we both agree we must never do it again. Two weeks later, we're back there again.' 'He cheated, didn't pay for a thing and all my friends hated him and I put up with all of it for the sex. I still have sneaky sex with him and don't tell a soul.' J-Lo isn't the only one who never did stop thinking about her ex – almost two-thirds of married people agree their ex is on their mind far too often. Forty-three percent of single women in another study took it further than just thinking: they regularly had sex with ex-partners while looking for a new lover, along with 47 per cent of men. Just about all of us admit to having sex with an ex on at least one occasion. It's extremely common - but why is it so damn appealing? I asked people to tell me the reasons why they went back, even if the break-up was painful. The first is sheer laziness mixed with alcohol… J-Lo...

The central bankers may even look relaxed against the backdrop of the Grand Tetons in the crisp late August air. But they will be under pressure to gently steer toward less policy support, without creating a market tantrum. Federal Reserve officials, in numerous recent speeches and interviews, have already managed to speed up expectations for when they could begin to slowly pare back their $120 billion a month in bond purchases. More of that talk is expected at their annual symposium, which begins Thursday. The Fed chairman's speech is typically the highlight of that annual event, and various Fed chairs have used Jackson Hole to send important messages. The question is whether Jerome Powell will channel that speech Friday morning to provide more details on how the Fed could begin to unwind its bond...

    American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten was ripped after hedging on whether or not U.S. schools would reopen in the fall during a Wednesday interview on MSNBC. While having previously recommended that fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed guidance following the spread of the new Delta variant of the virus, announcing that vaccinated people should return to wearing masks indoors and suggesting universal masking in schools.  Weingarten called the guidance a "curveball," before suggesting that school reopenings this fall are not a done deal.  TEACHER SLAMS ‘DEMORALIZING’ NEW CDC MASK GUIDANCE FOR SCHOOLS: ‘KIDS NEED TO GET BACK TO NORMAL’ "So the bottom line is, we're going to keep kids safe, we're going to keep our members safe, we're going to try to open up schools, and we're going to move through this political battlefield," Weingarten said. Critics picked up on her comment about the reopening of schools because it sounded like backpedaling from when she argued in May that "we can and we must reopen schools...

    “The View” host Meghan McCain called out her own show for painting an intellectually dishonest picture of coronavirus vaccine hesitancy. McCain argued on Tuesday’s broadcast that blaming Fox News for spreading “misinformation” about vaccines would not do anything to address the fact that it was not just Fox News viewers who were showing reluctance to get vaccinated. (RELATED: ‘I Will Die On This Hill’: Meghan McCain Rips Gwen Berry For Making Her Personal Grievance An International Statement) WATCH: Cohost Joy Behar began the segment by suggesting that the vaccine should be mandated — at least in schools and hospitals — placing the blame squarely on social media platforms and Fox News. “The reason that you have many people unvaccinated besides their fear of the vaccine is this misinformation that’s coming out of Facebook and Fox News,” she said. “I don’t care what anybody says, yes, Democrats are probably problematic also, if you talk about people in New York, but Republicans are the ones who are spewing the lies. They are the ones spewing the misinformation.” McCain said that...

    Matthew McConaughey, who is mulling a run for Texas governor, delivered a typically surreal July 4 message on Sunday, declaring that America is still “going through puberty” while also urging Americans “to keep maturing.” The. Hollywood star delivered his address against the backdrop of an American flag while wearing sunglasses and sporting slick-backed hair. “Happy Birthday America. Yes indeed, as we celebrate our independence today, as we celebrate our birth as a nation today that kick started our revolution to gain our sovereignty, let’s admit that this last year’s trip around the sun was also another head scratcher,” Matthew McConaughey said. “But let’s also remember that we are babies, you know, as a country. We are basically going through puberty in comparison to other countries’ timeline, and we’re going to go through growing pains, we are going through growing pains. This is not an excuse to say this is just a reality.” He added: “And this is good because we’ve gotta keep learning, we gotta keep maturing, we gotta keep striving, we gotta keep climbing, we gotta keep building.” Watch below:...
    Joe Biden isn't being tough enough on Russian President Vladimir Putin, critics claim after a new cyber attack by Kremlin-linked hackers hit up to 1 million companies and demanded $70 million in cryptocurrency to fix it. The president told his Russian counterpart last month that he would take action against hacking groups that target the U.S., and on Saturday told reporters that he will retaliate against the ransomware attack. 'This marks a serious escalation just weeks after Putin-Biden summit on ransomware,' New York Times cybersecurity reporter Nicole Perlroth tweeted Saturday. 'Not only is this a supply chain attack on MSPs,' she continued, 'they broke in via a zero day, a significant advance for REVil which has traditionally compromised victims through usual means of phishing, etc.' Biden has instructed the FBI to launch an investigation into the hack, but insists that he and the intelligence community are still 'not sure who' is behind the cyberattack.  In mid-June, Biden held a bilateral meeting in Geneva where he gave Putin a list of 16 critical infrastructure entities that are 'off limits.' Those entities...
    Matthew McConaughey wished America a happy 245th birthday in a very McConaughey-esque way, encouraging his fellow Americans to “celebrate our independence” but while America was still a young country, “basically going through puberty,” he was optimistic because we still had the ability to “keep learning” and “maintain hope.” “Let’s admit that this last year, this trip around the sun, was another head scratcher,” said McConaughey, wearing sunglasses and an American flag in the background. But it was important to remember, he continued, that America was a young country. “We are babies…as a country, we’re basically going through puberty,” compared to other countries around the world, and we would have some “growing pains.” That wasn’t an “excuse,” he continued, “but the reality,” and it was good, “because we gotta keep learning, we gotta keep maturing, we gotta keep striving, we gotta keep climbing, we gotta keep building, and we gotta make sure we maintain hope as we continue to evolve.” “Why? Because the alternative sucks,” he said with a chuckle. “I believe that America and you and I — I believe that...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Sick since birth, 14-year-old Mark Trapp has beaten the odds. Mark Trapp, 14, is one of less than 20 children in the U.S. to have received a heart and liver transplant at the same time. (Family photo) The Perris native is one of fewer than 20 children in the U.S. who have received both a heart and liver transplant at the same time.

Mark was born with hypoplastic right heart syndrome, a rare congenital heart disease that left the right chamber of his heart underdeveloped and unable to pump blood. In his short life, he has undergone three open-heart surgeries.

    Call ’em Texpats. Kevin and Susan Bryant, 55 and 48, spent most of their lives in Texas, recently in the retiree hot spot Austin. But “when Austin became a mini–Silicon Valley, we were priced out,” Kevin, a now-retired history teacher and principal, tells MarketWatch. The history buff says he’d always wanted to live in Europe — “in a castle, specifically, but I let that part go,” he jokes — and began hunting for where the couple might retire on his educator’s pension. They considered more than a dozen countries, finally settling on Spain for a variety of reasons, including its relative affordability, its good health care and that his teacher’s pension could qualify as income to help him get residency there. “ Want to share your retirement story? Email MarketWatch at HelpMeRetire@marketwatch.com. ” To find the right spot, they toured Spain, rejecting Barcelona because it was too big; Tarragona because it was too far north (they wanted somewhere a little warmer); and Peñíscola, because, though they liked it, Susan jokes, “I could never tell my mother...

But in our still fraught world of COVID-19 and its intersection with sports, it cannot be too surprising that NC State found itself in such a horrible position Saturday, having been tested and contact traced to the point where the NCAA was forced to remove them from the tournament.  This situation is particularly ominous right now, at a time when a large number of college and professional athletes are still refusing to be vaccinated, risking not just their own and other people’s health but putting teammates in position to suffer the kind of consequences that cost the Wolfpack a chance...

After dropping out of the recent 2021 LEC Spring Split playoffs to Fnatic, the team has made some significant roster changes to prepare for the upcoming season—but not in the way that many fans might have expected. There aren’t any new names in the lineup, but there are some old faces in new roles. The League of Legends team decided to move TynX out of the starting jungler position and instead have support Treatz role swap in his place for next season. Treatz’s replacement, on the other hand, will be the team’s former head coach Jesiz, who will be playing in the LEC for the first time since 2018. Before the season starts, however, SK’s top laner Jenax talked to Dot Esports about why the team went all-in with these roster changes...

    Jai’Ree Tannan stepped onto the stage erected in the shadow of the police union’s headquarters in Los Angeles’ Westlake neighborhood. The 20-year-old stood away from the microphone, listening intently as a fellow student activist gave voice to the crowd. “We got cops off campus,” the female speaker declared. “We did that!” Tannan nodded proudly. “Woooo!” cheered the crowd that had gathered on a recent afternoon for the rally organized by Black Lives Matter Los Angeles. Following a prolonged campaign led by students, including Tannan, the L.A. Board of Education in February approved a plan to drastically shrink its police force on LAUSD campuses, ban the use of pepper spray on students and use the diverted funds to improve the education of Black students. A core group of L.A. student activists has been pushing to defund school police for years. But the movement gained much broader traction after George Floyd’s death one year ago. That trajectory held true for Tannan’s own activism. Although he’d been involved in social justice causes for a few years, Tannan, who...

    Trion Football had a noteworthy spring. The team, coaches and players, were upbeat, excited, and happy to be playing football. “I love you, and Jesus loves you,” was a common phrase yelled out by Sean Patrick in his raspy year-round coach voice, followed by,  “But you are going to grab some grass, hit him harder, catch the ball, make the throw…” depending on the situation. Bulldog Head Coach Sean Patrick said spring practice went really well, “it was exciting to be back on the grass together. We still have a lot of work to do, but I am excited about the possibilities this season. Spring practice offers an opportunity to evaluate players, and we were able to do that. Had a lot of new faces to look at, and old faces in new positions.” There are striking differences in Trion’s football program, one being there is no cursing, not by the coaches or the players. Coach Patrick only says one bad word, “piss” and you hear it often at practice....
