Associated Press Published 9:52 PM EST Nov 4, 2018 Cleveland — With almost every flick of his right wrist, the legend of Patrick Mahomes grows. And he’s just beginning. Only 10 games into his NFL career, Kansas City’s young quarterback is doing things that have never been done before. Mahomes passed for 375 yards, threw three touchdown passes — two to Cleveland native Travis Kelce — and continued the best start by a QB in 68 years as Kansas City’s impossible-to-handle offense kept rolling with a 37-21 win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns, who played their first game since coach Hue Jackson’s firing.

The Cancer Coalition held a successful fundraiser in the interim, but now at last the #StolenColon has been found: All in all, a happy ending. [image via Twitter] Have a tip we should know?

Drake Lewis, 21, filmed the video of this admittedly intoxicated woman hurling racial slurs and him and a friend named Sam on Wednesday. The woman has not been identified, so for the purpose of this article and in line with the trend of alliterative nicknames in situations like this, she will be referred to as “Downtown Darlene.” [Credit goes to my colleague Ronn Blitzer for coining this one.] Indeed, there has been a string of incidents of late involving white women who are filmed accosting African-Americans as they attempt to live life. “Key Fob Kelly,” “Gas Station Gail,” “BBQ Becky” and “Permit Patty” are now household names at the internet’s perpetual meme party. “Downtown Darlene” could be heard in all of her … [Read more...] about ‘You a Caramel N****r’: ‘Downtown Darlene’ Unleashes Wild Racist Rant on Kansas City Bar Scene (VIDEO)
