May your dreams bring you peace in the darkness
May you always rise over the rain
May the light from above always lead you to love
May you stay in the arms of the angels
– Maggie Siff from Sons of Anarchy
Welcome to the Sunday news. It’s still snowing in Chicago. If it’s any consolation to those of you there, it’s been in the 60s and cloudy here in LA while I’ve been here so certainly not paradise and pretty much equal to what you are going through there. We all have our struggles. Before the day gets any harder for all of us, let’s get to the news from around the web for 12-11-16.
- John Glenn passed away this week. He was the last of the original Mercury Seven astronauts. He was a childhood hero of mine and he and the other astronauts launched a love of space and the space program that I still have today. Here are some facts about John Glenn that you might not have known. Good Lord light all the way. God Speed John Glenn. (USAToday)

- It’s rare to see a brand new trick play in football. Most of the trick plays are known and are rarely successful. This one from yesterday is pretty cool and at full speed, it’s confusing as hell. (BroBible)

Today’s music video comes to us from Sons of Anarchy. The music used on that show was some of the best on TV. This song is performed by one of the stars of the show, Maggie Siff. It was played in her final episode on the show and it’s one of my favorite songs from the series. This is Maggie Siff from Sons of Anarchy season 7 with Lullaby for a Soldier.
