The sports world was all aglow for the big game, but there was news out of Los Angeles that put a pit in all of our stomachs

The whole world it seemed, waited patiently through two weeks without football (wasn't the Pro Bowl last week?) - as I said, the whole world waited two weeks for today's match-up, The Los Angeles Rams against The Cincinnati Bengals. What could possibly put a damper to that? The news ironically out of the city that everyone was focused on, Los Angeles, Ex-Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson arrested and booked for felony domestic violence.
