It seemed like a move that needed to happen, as Indy’s on-field performance over the last few years has declined while rumblings of a rift between Grigson and Chuck Pagano have been out there for a while. McAfee has been in Indianapolis since 2009, so he’s seen the inner workings of this organization before and during the Grigson years.

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

    • This Might Be the Most Powerful Red Dress Michelle Obama's Ever Worn

      Though we hadn't any doubts about Michelle Obama's Inauguration Day look, we were excited, as always, to recognize the meaning behind it. Michelle joined Barack in welcoming Donald and Melania Trump to the White House wearing none other than Jason Wu — a designer she's turned to time and time again. The style was a red fit-and-flare with a soft brushstroke print and Michelle styled it with a thin black belt. She swept up her hair to reveal diamond stud earrings by Harry Kotlar and slipped into suede pumps. Michelle's outfit, which came complete with a matching coat, was nothing if not sophisticated, but it was when she stood by Melania, the new first lady in blue, that we recognized the former

Texas received the most statewide robocalls in the U.S. for the seventh consecutive month, with 283.1 million calls received in December, according to the index. The 817 area code ranked 9th in the nation in robocall volume with 22.6 million calls. Dallas and Houston made the Top 10 among cities.

    • Trump uses photo from Obama inauguration as his new Twitter banner image

      Donald Trump gained a new Twitter account but uploaded an old banner image. Upon taking the oath of office Friday morning, Trump swapped Twitter accounts with Barack Obama and a new background photo was quickly uploaded to the new @POTUS page. Well, new to Trump. The photo, which has since been changed again, was actually from Obama's own 2009 inauguration ceremony, as a Getty search shows.  The WayBack Machine, an internet archive that collects web page screenshots, reveals the photo was uploaded by Trump's camp, since early Friday morning Obama had a different banner photo.  It's not clear why Trump would use an image from Obama's swearing in, but a good guess might be that the crowd was markedly

Now 32, Lincecum is no longer a star. As Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday, Lincecum’s agent, Rick Thurman, says his client “is throwing and getting ready for the season.” That means the fact that no one is calling hasn’t stopped Lincecum from pushing to make what seems impossible now a reality later.

      President Trump signed his first executive order in his redecorated Oval Office late Friday, targeting Obamacare, as his administration ordered an immediate freeze on new regulations just hours after his inauguration. Seated behind the iconic Resolute Desk, made from the timbers of a British exploration ship in the late 19th century, Trump also signed the commissions for his first two Cabinet nominees to win Senate confirmation: Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Trump was surrounded by senior aides and advisers, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Hope Hicks, National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, Stephen Miller and Marc Short.

    • President Trump’s Inauguration Crowd Doesn’t Look Like Barack Obama’s Did in 2009

      A side-by-side comparison of the crowds at former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump‘s respective inaugurations reveals that Trump’s crowd isn’t as large as he boasted it would be. Two aerial photographs of the National Mall from the two historic days reveal large patches of white ground exposed during Trump’s ceremony, spaces crowds had filled during Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Federal and local agencies estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would be in Washington, D.C. for Trump’s inauguration on Friday, roughly half the number of people who attended Obama’s first presidential inauguration.
