‘HE’S FIGHTING’: Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin critical after suffering chilling cardiac arrest on field

You don’t have to be a football fan or even know anything about the sport to be aware that there was a devastating turn of events during Monday night’s NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals that saw Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin collapse on the field following a tackle.

By Tuesday morning, Hamlin was still in critical condition and it was determined he suffered a cardiac arrest. Part of the nearly 20-minute medical treatment he received on the field was his heartbeat being restored by staff.

A lot of good has happened since the incident that has somehow brought together a nation and others around the world. As of the last update, Hamlin is breathing on his own, able to talk, and even joined a team meeting via videoconference, where he told them “love you boys.”

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Emily Ratajkowski throws shade at ’emasculated’ men after Pete Davidson split

It doesn’t take a detective to know that Emily Ratajkowski is a confident, strong-willed, independent woman. The actress and model has been seen out and about, sometimes heavily making out, with different dudes since splitting from her allegedly cheating husband and all the power to her. Men, on the other hand, need to figure their stuff out.

Em Rata took to her podcast to declare that men “don’t know how to handle” what being with a strong woman is like because they “get emasculated” and end up resenting and tearing down said strong woman. Now, was she referring to Pete Davidson, one of the aforementioned dudes with whom she was in a brief fling? Or someone else?
