CeeDee Lamb’s ridiculous 4-yard TD catch was a thing of absolute beauty

If you just looked at the box score of Sunday’s Cowboys-Vikings game you would see that CeeDee Lamb scored on a four-yard TD catch with just under five minutes left to go in the second quarter.

That doesn’t seem like much in a box score but in real life that four-yard touchdown catch was a thing of absolute beauty that we should bow down to because, wow, it was ridiculous.

The rookie wide receiver out of Oklahoma made this look way too easy in real time. Check it out as he extends his body and reaches out to pull it in all while being covered really darn closely:

Here’s an even cooler angle:

Holiday Shopping Destination: Catch the wave in Port Jefferson

The water is omnipresent in this seaside community: from the boats and ferries docked at the harbor to the eateries specializing in all manner of seafood.

Port Jefferson is the only deep water harbor on the North Shore, bringing a steady influx of tourists and visitors from the north, said Mary Joy Pipe, president of Port Jefferson’s Chamber of Commerce and owner of The East End Shirt Co.

“We are a tourist community, but not only that. We definitely entertain and welcome our neighbors near and far,” Pipe said, adding, “You drive an hour and you feel like you’re away for the weekend, even just for a day or an afternoon off, to come to our village.”

The sea happens to be the main theme of Sea Creations (134 Main St., 631-473-8388, seacreations.com), where you’ll find seashell ornaments, earrings and necklaces made of abalone and beach glass, decorative sand dollars and starfish, and genuine shark teeth.

On Small Business Saturday, spend $125 on items from the Ocean by ShanOre nautical jewelry collection and get a free pair of Swarovski crystal earrings.

“We have gifts for men, women and children,” said owner Sue Hoeffner, who is celebrating her 44th year in business in Port Jefferson. “We try to be inclusive: I try to cater to all age groups.”

Other seaworthy souvenirs are glass beach bubbles (ornaments made of glass), Dune Jewelry’s handmade charm bracelets with sand from local beaches, Spicy Shark hot sauces and sea-themed jigsaw puzzles.

There are plenty of tchotchkes for landlubbers, too: Kit-Cat Klocks (clocks with cat faces), Woodstock chimes, fanciful mugs and drinking glasses, dream catchers, and even Trump bottle openers.

Sea Creations offers curbside pickup, though Hoeffner noted, she rarely gets requests.

Pride of place is hard to miss at The East End Shirt Co. (3 Mill Creek Rd., 631-473-2093, eastendco.com), where you’ll find sweatshirts and sweatpants, T-shirts, caps and jackets sporting “Long Island,” “Port Jefferson,” “Beaches of Long Island” and similar themes. For home snuggling, there are oversize, sweatshirt-soft blankets in colorful designs.

The blanket is “the size of a twin bed and 80% cotton, 20% polyester,” said Pipe, adding, “We just celebrated 41 years this summer.”

In addition to the variety of clothing on display, the store offers custom screen printing and embroidery, primarily for a minimum order of 12 pieces, and one-offs with applied lettering, noted Pipe.

On a recent Saturday last month, Lisa Pinkard ventured to East End Shirt to order a custom name and design on a few garments.

“We drove 35 to 40 minutes to get here,” said Pinkard, 43, of Islip Terrace. “When we got here, we were surprised by the uniqueness and variety of this shop. This store tells a story.”

Sound the Alarm: Pants Do Catch Fire; CPSC Urges Seniors to Stay Vigilant About Clothing Fire Safety

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ —

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1973 and charged with protecting the American public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call the CPSC hotline at 1-800-638-2772, or visit https://www.saferproducts.gov. Further recall information is available at https://www.cpsc.gov. (PRNewsfoto/U.S. Consumer Product Safety Co)

Did you know that older Americans (over 65) are one of the groups at greatest risk of dying in a fire?  Seniors are 16% of the population, but they account for 77% of the deaths from clothing fires.  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) wants to sound the alarm on this sobering statistic, by reminding our senior community to stay vigilant about fire safety.

“All clothing can burn,” says CPSC Acting Chairman Robert Adler.  “And the loose clothing often favored by seniors can catch fire especially easily,” he added.

Whether it’s a dangling sleeve over the stove top, or food left unattended – cooking accidents are the leading cause of fires in the home.  But you may be surprised to know that burning trash, grass and debris outdoors is also a leading cause of clothing fire injuries to seniors.  Using space heaters improperly also tops the list.  So, what is catching fire?  The leading clothing item ignited and causing these injuries is pants, followed by shirts, night gowns and robes.  Here’s how the numbers break down.

CPSC estimates there were about 1,100 emergency room visits per year associated with senior clothing fire injuries from 2015 to 2019.  This includes both fires in the home and outdoor fires.

  • An estimated 22% of these injuries are from cooking fires;
  • 21% are from burning trash/grass/debris; and
  • 12% are from space heater fires.

According to the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS), there are an estimated annual average of 60 clothing fire deaths to seniors per year.  Of these clothing fire deaths to senior citizens:

  • 24% are from “Range, Oven” fires; 
  • 23% are from smoking material-ignited fires; and
  • 11% are from heater fires. 

CPSC is releasing a new Public Service Announcement (PSA) to warn older consumers about this hazard, and to show how these types of fires can be prevented.

The vast majority of these fires are highly preventable.  Here’s how you can be fire safe:

  • All Clothing Burns: Keep all clothing away from flames and ignition sources.  Loose clothing can catch fire easily.
  • Cook with Care: Keep sleeves and dangling clothing components away from the cooktop.
  • Outdoor Fire Safety: When burning trash and yard debris, keep a safe distance from any outdoor fire, and keep lighter fluid off clothing.  Follow CDC guidelines regarding outdoor burning during the COVID 19 pandemic.
  • Space Heater Safety: Loose pants and robes in close proximity to a space heater can catch fire.  Space heaters need space.
  • If You Smoke: Smoking materials can ignite clothing.  Don’t smoke while drowsy; safely extinguish smoking material.
  • Extra Precaution: Have a fire extinguisher nearby, and place working smoke alarms on every floor outside sleeping areas and inside bedrooms.

If clothing does catch fire, according to the CDC and the National Fire Prevention Association, stop (don’t run), drop and roll.  Cover your face.  Roll until the fire is out.  If you’re not able to drop,

The hidden beauty in Malik Taylor’s first NFL touchdown catch

From where he was standing in the visiting locker room at NRG Stadium, Rodgers could tell what that catch meant to his 24-year-old receiver.

“I was walking around the far side of the locker room and I just looked over and saw Malik,” Rodgers recalled Wednesday.

“You guys have seen the picture of me in Detroit in 2016 when we won six in a row and it’s in the locker room – it’s one of my favorite pictures … because I think it totally encapsulates the emotion of that moment, there’s just such a contentment about it and joy that you kinda see in my face.

“That’s what I felt looking at Malik in the locker room, that’s the emotions he was going through. There was just, like a, relief, joy, happiness, contentment, pride.”

There’s been a lot of those seminal moments this year for the Packers, where a player – heralded or unheralded – steps into the spotlight and creates memory that transcends a play.

Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, Kingsley Keke already have turned in career-best performances in the first half of the 2020 season.

While Taylor’s big day may have paled in comparison to outsiders (two catches for six yards and the TD), it’s also everything that’s made the Packers’ 5-1 start so special.
