Is That Baker Mayfield’s Wife in Commercials for Progressive?

Baker is so good at improvising that he doesn’t even need a script during filming. “We set the scene up, and we just go,” Jeff told CNBC. “It’s like one-take bake. He’s pretty natural and pretty relatable.”

The ads also impressed Scott Rosner, a sports management program professor at Columbia. “He’s fun, and he’s not afraid to do silly things; to be the punchline of the scenario,” Scott observed to CNBC. “And he doesn’t take himself too seriously.”

The couple filmed a second season of the ad campaign for the 2020 football season. And unlike the first season, they filmed the new spots on location at First Energy Stadium, discussing the need for seat warmers in the stadium and for covers for their “lawn furniture,” i.e. the stands.

Someone Has Actually Used TikTok to Solve a Cold Murder Case

When you think of TikTok, you probably think of a bunch of mirthless dancing teenagers rocking looks lifted straight out of a YouTube makeup tutorial video who are moments away from saying something offensive that’ll upend their e-fame and toss them back right back into the pit of obscurity.

But the video sharing platform has another side, where folks share helpful knowledge that have changed people’s lives for the better. And for Sarah Turney, it helped solve her sister’s cold murder case.

TikTok solved a murder case, thanks to Sarah Turney’s persistence.

In 2001, 17-year-old Alissa Turney vanished from her high school in Phoenix, Ariz. Police at the time had assumed that the teen had run away from home. Her younger sister Sarah, who was 12-years-old at the time, knew better.

When it became apparent that Alissa was not only not coming back home, but that there was no trace of her, her closest friends, family members, and authorities feared the worst.

As years progressed, Sarah began using social media in the hopes of gleaning any information she could that could help locate Sarah’s killer. She launched a Facebook group, an Instagram account, and a blog called “Justice for Alissa.” She published true crime podcasts (“Voices for Justice”), and would record her own videos that shared all of the details surrounding the case as well as context on an individual she came to believe was the prime suspect in Alissa’s murder.

Sarah Turney’s efforts began taking off once she started posting videos to TikTok.

That suspect was her stepfather, Michael Turney, and she even attended CrimeCon to help glean more information that could help her investigate his possible part in Alissa’s murder even further. It wasn’t until she began publishing videos on TikTok until she finally started to get potential leads to capture the culprit.

In her videos, Sarah focused purely “on the facts” of the case. She and Alissa lived with their stepdad, Michael, after their mother, Barbara Strahm, had died of cancer.

Sarah recalled the day that Alissa had disappeared: Her usually put-together room was ransacked, and all that was left was her Nokia cell phone and a note that said she had gone to California to try and make a life for herself alone. Police classified the teen as a runaway.

But then, seven years later, officers discovered two silencers, explosive devices, and pipe bombs in Michael’s home. In a 2009 interview, Alissa’s stepfather stated he planned to kill himself as a means of drawing attention to her disappearance.

He denied having anything to do with her murder in a 2009 ABC interview.

“They have no proof whatsoever of anything other than rumors and innuendos and lies. There’s only two people that can confirm whether I did it, and one is me, and the other is Alissa. Alissa’s not here and I’m sitting here and all I can say until hell freezes over, I didn’t do a damned thing to my daughter,” he said.

He was sentenced to prison for seven years for possession of the weapons and was released. Since then, Sarah has been uploading videos about her sister’s disappearance, including VHS footage where Alissa says, “Dad’s a pervert,” four years prior to her disappearance as the three of them played outside, indicating that Michael had been abusing Alissa for some time.

She also had a conversation with Michael in 2017 at a Starbucks and recorded their dialogue in the hopes of extrapolating some further information about Alissa’s disappearance. Her videos had amassed hundreds of thousands of views among her million-plus followers. She’s been carefully compiling facts, leads, and evidence pertaining to Michael and the alleged part he played in Alissa’s death.

All of the hard work that Sarah put into the case was compiled and submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, which, in late 2019, indicted Michael Turney.

At a press conference announcing the developments in the cold case, Attorney Allister Adel said, “Sarah Turney, your perseverance and commitment to finding justice for your sister Alissa is a testament to the love of a sister, because of that love, Alissa’s light has never gone out and she lives on in the stories and photos you’ve shared with the community.”

She continued, “This passion you have demonstrated to her during your journey is something that will keep Alissa’s memory alive forever.”

Sarah has stated she “won’t ever stop” posting videos until her sister’s murderer is brought to justice.

Is Drew Brees Retiring After This Year? Details on Saints QB’s Future

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees turned 42 on Friday, Jan. 15, and that milestone “helps us focus on his future a little bit,” as NFL Network commentator Ian Rapoport said on NFL GameDay Morning a day later. Specifically, there’s one question on every Saints fan’s mind: Is Drew Brees retiring after this year?

Drew hasn’t said it’s his last year on the gridiron, but don’t forget the 13-time Pro Bowl player signed a contract to join NBC Sports after his football career, potentially as a replacement for Cris Collinsworth, according to an April 2020 New York Post report.

“Like all NFL fans, we look forward to watching Drew continue his Hall of Fame career this fall, and we are confident his post-playing career will be just as successful,” NBC Sports spokesman Greg Hughes told the newspaper at the time.

“Everyone” believes Drew is retiring this year, Ian said.

“I’ve talked to several people close to him, I’ve talked to several people involved in this. Everybody believes that he will retire at the end of the season,” Ian said on the show on Saturday, Jan. 16, as the Saints prepared to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional playoffs the following day.

“He has not made his future clear, he has not come out and said it, but he does have a nice contract from NBC waiting,” Ian added. “He is hoping for one last run through the playoffs, hoping to end his career on the podium, holding a big trophy. That is what to look for in this next month or so for Drew Brees.”

Ian’s comments echo what he said on NFL GameDay Morning a week prior: “I have yet to talk to one person who believes that Drew Brees will play in 2021,” Ian said at the time, per NFL.com. “He has not made clear his decision, he has not announced definitively that he is retiring after the playoffs, but certainly that seems to be the way this is headed. … He may have done it last year [but] decided to come back this year and give one final ride.”

Jameis Winston could replace Drew as the Saints’ star quarterback.

Ian says Jameis Winston is Drew’s heir apparent. Jameis, 27, joined the Saints in April 2020 and filled in for an injured Drew earlier this season. “My understanding is, despite [him] not playing hardly at all this year, [the Saints] do want to bring back Jameis Winston,” Ian said on Jan. 16.

He went on: “They love what they’ve seen in practice, the Saints have. They’ve seen the arm talent, they’ve seen all the skills that made him a No. 1 pick, they love the work ethic. They just haven’t seen him show that he’s learned mentally to cut down the interceptions because he hasn’t played. Perhaps next year, we’ll get to see a little bit of that.”

The other quarterback on the Saints’ roster is Taysom Hill, who’s currently sidelined with a knee injury.

Meek Mill Questions The Special Treatment Of A Failed MAGA Coup Rioter After Their Arrest

Wednesday will mark two weeks since a failed MAGA coup saw people storm Capitol Hill in an attempt to undo Donald Trump&#8217;s election loss to Joe Biden and, according to some reports, cause harm to government leaders. According to <em>Forbes</em>, the FBI says it has identified more than 200 suspects and arrested over 100 suspects since the January 6 riot. 

This includes Arkansas native Richard Barnett who was charged with unlawfully entering the US Capitol, disorderly conduct, and theft of public property. Initially, Barnett won permission from Arkansas-based U.S. magistrate judge Erin Weidemann to return home and await trial for his charges on house arrest with “very, very restrictive conditions,” but U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell would later block the release. However, before Judge Howell could overturn the ruling, Meek Mill took to Instagram to share his disappointment with the initial decision.

The rapper shared a screenshot of a tweet from Politico that announced Judge Weidemann’s initial decision to Instagram with a lengthy caption. “My whole race in jail for tryna protect themselves or some petty drugs! We living in the middle of a silent war! You can run in the state capitol and get house arrest?” Meek questioned. “Just pay attention to that part …ain’t no protest that can fix that! We have no protection in the system as black folks and it’s not no telling what’s next!!!! Didn’t people die in that sh*t ….we would of had conspiracy to terrorism or something they made up.”

You can read his post above.

Meek Mill is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.

QAnon Congresswoman Deletes Tweet Calling On Public To ‘Mobilize’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the QAnon supporter and newly-elected congresswoman, deleted a tweet on Saturday that asked Americans to “mobilize” against “attacks on our liberties.”
"I encourage all Americans, not just the 75 million people who voted for President Trump, to mobilize and make your voices heard in opposition to these attacks on our liberties," Greene wrote on Saturday.

The tweet was part of a larger thread in which Greene accused everyone from "Socialist Democrats" to President-elect Joe Biden of preparing to surveil and censor wide-swathes of the country. "The Socialist Democrats, the incoming administration, the DC Swamp, and the Silicon Valley Cartel are looking for any reason to implement Communist Chinese-style spying and censorship on the American people," Greene said.

Greene's remarks come just days after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying the election, leading to the death of five people. Countless rioters also openly expressed their intention to assassinate numerous politicians, including Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. While it remains unclear why Greene deleted the tweet, such calls to action are alarming given the potential for the congresswoman's far-right base to respond. Since the violence at the Capitol, much of which was carried out by fellow supporters of QAnon, Greene has deleted a significant number of tweets. Some of the deleted tweets included praise for attorney Lin Wood, the conspiracy theorist who unsuccessfully attempted to overturn the election on behalf of the president, as well as a promise to stop the alleged "violent political targeting" of conservatives.

Despite numerous Twitter users questioning Greene over why she deleted the tweet, the congresswoman has declined to respond.
