SEASON PREMIERE

The Walking Dead premiered its seventh season last night with a gory, brutal episode, picking up at last season's cliffhanger, with the newest warlord, Negan, threatening to bash someone's head in with a barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat. He kept his word, and we all got to see the hamburger-y result. More than one critic (and fan) likened it to "torture porn." Nevertheless, the show's cycle continues: After beginning to feel safe, our favorite characters have been reminded that there's always someone worse out there, someone who actually enjoys the new world.  

NO ONE LOSES
The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals battled it out Sunday night in the desert. It was about defense, pass rushers, punters and kickers. The game would go into overtime, where each team added a field goal, bringing the score to 6-6. That's where it'd end, in a tie. There were no touchdowns, but hey, no one lost.
