NFL Draft prospect Jordan Morgan claims team forced him into staring contest | NFL | Sporting News


The NFL Combine can be a weird place. While some teams keep it professional, others ask off-the-wall questions of the potential NFL players and can make things uncomfortable. That happened to Jordan Morgan, an offensive lineman from Division II Kutztown University.

But Morgan wasn’t asked a strange question, instead he was required to perform an odd task: stare.

“The strangest thing I had asked of me at the Combine was how long I could have my eyes open in a staring contest. I thought it was weird, but it’s one of those things you don’t question on the spot,” he told Penn Live. “I didn’t blink at all. He told me I could stare at anything. I just focused on a water bottle. I don’t know how long it was, but it was pretty long. My eyes were fogging up. I couldn’t see after. He was just like, ‘I got what I need. You can stop now.'”

Weather News – Round two of heavy rain, risk for accumulating snow


Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 4:45 PM – Yet another moisture laden low is set to push into southern Ontario and southeastern Qu├ębec starting Wednesday night and impact the region through Friday with significant rainfall and some accumulating snow.

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for most of southern Ontario, with 30 to 50 mm expected into Thursday. With this comes the risk of localized flooding as “the ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall,” according to Environment Canada.

Meanwhile, snowfall warnings have been issued for Algonquin and Burk’s Falls, with 15 to 25 cm possible.

Here’s a breakdown of the system based on timing:

En route northeastward from Texas and Oklahoma, the low will push into the Great Lakes Basin through Wednesday afternoon. As it does, a cold front associated with the low will trigger a line of strong to severe thunderstorms across parts of the Midwest all the way through to the southeastern U.S

Caterpillar to rally 30% on construction equipment turnaround


Investors should buy Caterpillar because the company will report earnings this year significantly above Wall Street expectations, according to Goldman Sachs, which reiterated its buy rating on the equipment manufacturer and added the company to its Americas conviction buy list.

“Construction machinery demand is in the early stages of recovery, with significant scope for inventory restock,” analyst Jerry Revich wrote in a note to clients Tuesday. “A modest construction recovery in key regions, compounded by normalization in machinery share of capex should drive strong demand growth off of historically low levels.”

Back-to-backs on road are Cavs’ Kryptonite – NBA News


The past six months have told us the Cleveland Cavaliers are likely to struggle Wednesday night against the Boston Celtics.

It’s an important game — the teams have matching 50-27 records and the winner would hold a one-game lead for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference with four games remaining for each team. Cleveland would hold the tiebreaker based on conference winning percentage should Boston win tonight and the two teams finish with identical overall records. But the Cavs are in what they’ve repeatedly shown is a bad spot for them.
