On a day when the U.S.A. gives thanks, it is important to remember our military. As two Marines deployed in Afghanistan get some sleep with their bomb-detecting dog, all Americans should give thanks to the men and women of the military that protect the freedoms of the nation.
From the Unknown Soldier Blog:
According to Cpl. Lodder's caption, the dog in the photo, Blue, detects improvised explosive devices. Blue is protecting his handler, Marine Lance Cpl. Jarrett Hatley, 21, of Millingport, North Carolina, as he takes a quick nap (covered by a Washington Redskins blanket) after helping Afghan National Army soldiers clear compounds in the central Helmand River Valley, a volatile area rife with threats from insurgents and terrorists.
The other Marine resting in the photo is Lance Cpl. Matthew Scofield, 19, of Syracuse, New York. Both Marines are assigned to 3rd Platoon, Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment.
Sports may just be a game, but for those overseas they can serve as a reminder of home.

Back in February, fans named the Redskins the third-most attractive team in the NFL. On top of that, Will Compton was tabbed the league's fifth-best looking player overall (in fact, he beat out Tom Brady, and everyone knows beating out Tom Brady in anything is always notable).
A side effect of being revered for your good looks, though, is that other people will sometimes get jealous of them. Take Compton's teammate, Su'a Cravens, for example.
According to some tweets from Cravens, the two Washington defenders were casually eating dinner on Wednesday night, but kept getting interrupted. The reason for the interruptions?
Apparently, they were happening because Compton is just really, really, really, ridiculously good looking.

Hopefully Compton picked up the tab, at least.
When most 30-year-olds earn a promotion, they'll receive a decent bump in compensation. Then, they'll use some of that bonus on that new set of golf clubs they've been eyeing, or perhaps on a fresh couch for the living room.
Sean McVay isn't one of those 30-year-olds.
The Rams head coach and former Redskins offensive coordinator bypassed those smaller purchases and has instead opted to recently buy a giant house in California. How much did McVay drop on the property? Oh, just $2.71 million. That's all.
The home, located in Encino, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and checks in at more than 4,600 square feet. And yes, of course, it has a pool.

Here are some photos of McVay's new digs:
The Internet these days is full of hot takes. Here's a cooler, more reasonable one: McVay's house is pretty nice.
