https://nypost.com/2024/03/31/sports/racers-in-crash-suspected-to-involve-rashee-rice-spotted-fleeing-scene/

Photos of the car accident that is suspected to involve Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice show occupants of the two vehicles that caused the crash fleeing the scary scene.

The photos, obtained by TMZ Sports, show a group of men who emerged from a Lamborghini and a Corvette that were racing before the crash walk away along the side of the North Central Expressway Saturday evening in Dallas, as first responders tend to the victims whose cars were banged up, witnesses told the website.

While it’s unclear if Rice, 23, is among the group of men in the photos, the Dallas Morning News reported that police suspect Rice was the driver of the Corvette; police are searching for Rice.

After spending five seasons with the Chiefs, guard Nick Allegretti found a new home, signing a deal with the Commanders.

The Kansas City Chiefs are aiming to bring back one of their free agent defenders ahead of the 2024 NFL draft.

A source confirms to A to Z Sports that the Chiefs are attempting to re-sign DE Mike Danna, who remains a free agent after first becoming one in mid-March at the start of the new league year. I’m told that a deal could be agreed upon as early as the first week of April. 610 Sports’ Bob Fescoe first reported on March 29 that the team was working to bring back Danna.

He was having a shitload of fun tho. And I don’t blame him. The problem is you’re a world class athlete not a world class driver. Also you’re putting others at risk. Shit rent a race track for an hr if u wanna crash your vette

Its been quite a year for me – first the Chiefs win the super bowl, now the Boilers make it to the final 4. And here on April fools day, I have to wonder if its real!

Seems like everyone and their brother are trying to keep you from the fish. Looks like its going to be partly cloudy here for that day. not that I really care that much. we have schools here closing for that day because they are worried about the liability of kids hurting their eyes on school grounds.

I ended up punting (to keep some football in this site) on Arkansas to see it. Several places were calling for 80%+ cloud cover where I was thinking about. Too far and too expensive for that chance. Going instead to Lenny the Cool’s hometown, Alliance, Oh. Going to go to Canton while I’m in the area and see the HoF, finally. Going to ask to see the Otis Taylor exhibit. I’ll wear my Dawson jersey around town. Hoping his spirit will keep the skies at least partly cloudy.

It sounds like its supposed to pass through our area here as well, Through Indy. I’ve heard they are doing someone at the 500 track there for people to watch it. It would be decent in my area, around Ft Wayne, but just north of the ideal track

If you are close to totality, and you have never seen a TOTAL eclipse, please go see it. It is simply the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced (outside of the Super Bowl wins, of course). It’s 4 min of something you can’t describe. 99% ain’t enough. Gotta be 100%. 99% is like Ordering a very nice meal and the food is really good. 100% is like ordering a nice meal, everything is perfect, and someone else pays for it.

He’s right. The penumbra is amazing but total eclipse is breathtaking
