How Superbowl hero Malcolm Butler wasn’t even on his high school team

Patriots rookie Malcolm Butler came out of nowhere to make the catch that won the Super Bowl. 

Now the Daily Mail Online can reveal the remarkable rags to riches story that is every bit as incredible as the last-gasp interception that stunned the world. 

Butler’s family and teachers have revealed how he once preferred basketball, barely played football for much of his time at high school and was even suspended from his studies. 

But they praised the hometown hero who went from serving fried chicken in Popeyes to playing alongside NFL superstar Tom Brady – in the space of two years.

Brady was so impressed by his New England teammate’s ‘perfect play’ he promised this week to give Butler the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck he earned as Super Bowl MVP.

Breaking Bad is the most critically acclaimed TV series of all time, according to the Guinness World Records. The black comedy drama — about a middle-aged chemistry-teacher-turned-drug-dealer — kept us gripped for five series.

It’s also self-contained, so you don’t need to have watched Breaking Bad to understand what’s going on, although this guide will get you off to a flying start.

Who’s the main man?

Breaking Bad told how chemistry teacher Walter White, desperate to leave enough money for his family after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, turned to producing and selling crystal meth in suburban New Mexico.

Seal Cove museum’s future at stake in legal dispute in Maine

Support for the Seal Cove Auto Museum could be at stake in a suit filed by the Maine Attorney General’s office that alleges that two trustees of a charitable trust inflated the value of the trust’s assets to pay themselves higher management fees, according to an extensive report in the Portland (Maine) Press Herald.

Although museum board members have no legal standing in the case, they “are watching closely because the fate of their quirky museum could be a stake,” the newspaper reported. 

The museum is supported in part by monthly payments from a charitable trust established by Brass Era car collector and museum founder Richard Payine Jr. 

Would trustees sell museum’s most valuable car, this 1913 Peugeot Type 150 boat-tailed ‘skiff’ by Labourdett, against museum board’s desires to keep such a showcase vehicle?

The newspaper reports that while the value of the

9. Jeep Grand Cherokee

Born in 1993, the Grand Cherokee was designed to give an off-road vehicle some luxury comfort. Though drivers in the ’90s turned them into the hulking grocery getters that took the “U” out of SUVs and gave the whole class a bad name, the ’90s Grand Cherokee has been redeemed by off roaders. The 1999 model received 4.2 out of five stars from CarGurus readers for both its ground clearance and how it handles snow. It only took about 16 years and a switch to a crossover platform for people to love the original Grand Cherokees for their intended purpose.
