Truth or Consequences, New Mexico ­– The Real Story Behind the Name

With a name like Truth or Consequences and an isolated location in the American West, you could be forgiven for thinking that this New Mexican town got its name from some bloody gunfight or a hard-nosed sheriff who wanted to urge potential visiting troublemakers to go elsewhere. The real story, though, is a bit stranger.

The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

By now, even non-football fans have heard about the officiating debacle in last night's showdown between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks (just check your Facebook feed).
