Yesterday I listened to KNBR radio host Damon Bruce report on the "Sodomy" accusations surrounding Penn State's former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Trust me when I say, the topic of discussion was gutwrenchingly brutal to listen to.

A special military family reunion was held at halftime, a father returned from 10 months of military service in Afghanistan. The reunion was disguised as a field goal kicking challenge and the soldier was in a Raiders uniform complete with a helmet with a dark shield to hide his identity. The reunion will be featured on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s Coming Home.
