In a show of solidarity with man's best friend, football star Tyrann Mathieu climbed into a car to find out what it's like for dogs when someone leaves them in locked inside for an extended period of time. What he found out is nothing short of stroke inducing.

Bronnie Ware is a hospice nurse who has spent countless hours at the sides of people in their final days. During that time, she realized they all shared some common regrets. The most common one she heard from men was they wished they worked less.

Today’s professional football world has never seen a player like Shaquem Griffin.
In 2016, he won the American Athletic Conference defensive player of the year award, with 92 total tackles, 11.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and an interception. (For you non-football folks, that’s really good.)
In March 2018, he clocked the fastest 40-yard dash time for a linebacker in the NFL Scouting Combine since 2003.
