The fan seen throwing beer on Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill moments after he scored his third touchdown against the Patriots during Sunday night’s overtime game has been banned from Gillette Stadium, team officials said.

It was clear through television replays that fans at Gillette Stadium were not saying nice things and were making obscene gestures to Hill, but it was also immediately clear one of them crossed the line by throwing beer directly into his face after his 75-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.

Hill made seven catches for 142 yards Sunday night, and the 75-yard catch tied the game at 40 with slightly more than three minutes remaining in regulation.

In a statement issued Monday afternoon, the Patriots organization said it had turned over the fan's identify to local law enforcement and issued "a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium."

The beer toss, along with several rude gestures made to Hill, were widely derided on social media Monday morning, but Hill later reportedly began exploring legal options against the fan. 

The Patriots (4-2) won 43-40 in overtime against the Chiefs (5-1).

The Miami music producer and his wife, Nicole Tuck, rented Marlins Park on Saturday for his son Asahd’s second birthday, and turned the 36,000-seat baseball stadium into a carnival. Instead of bases and a pitching mound, the stadium floor included a chair swing ride, a Ferris wheel, games and even a petting zoo, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

“Although his actual bday is OCT 23rd we started early,’’Khaled wrote on Twitter, including videos of the event at Marlins Park. “ASAHD had the whole stadium!!”

About 150 inner city kids and members of local Boys and Girls Clubs and Connecting Families joined the family at the party, EOnline reported. 

The party also served as the official launch for Asahd’s charity program, called Asahd’s Initiative -- which is part of Khaled’s We The Best Foundation.

Guests included Marlins owner Derek Jeter and Yo Gotti. Jeter presented a $100,000 check from the Marlins to Khaled’s We The Best Foundation.

It was a festive day for the Asahd and his family, and perked up the normally staid Marlins ballpark. The Marlins had the lowest average attendance in the major leagues in 2018, drawing 811,104 fans for an average of 10,013 per game, ESPN reported.

Justin Gallegos, a 20-year-old junior, thought he was being filmed for completing a cross country race for the university’s running club last Saturday. Instead, cameras captured the moment as John Douglas, Nike’s Insights director, handed Gallegos a contract.

In a video that has since gone viral, Gallegos sinks to his knees in joy as his teammates applaud.

“You don’t realize how realistic and emotional your dreams are until they play out before your very eyes!” Gallegos wrote on Instagram.

Gallegos began running as a ninth-grader. One of his coaches had gone to the University of Oregon, so Gallegos decided to attend the school and join the running club, Running magazine reported.

Gallegos used a walker as a child and endured plenty of physical therapy to improve his walk, the magazine reported.

He was noticed by Nike when he attended high school in California, and he has helped the athletic retail giant develop a shoe for runners with disabilities, called the FlyEase, Running reported.

Gallego said he was stunned by the contract offer from Nike.

“I’m still at a loss for words,” Gallego wrote on Instagram. “Beyond blessed to officially represent the swoosh!”

The video was released Oct. 6 to coincide with World Cerebral Palsy Day, Sports Illustrated reported.

11-year-old suffering from rare genetic disorder scores TD for Massachusetts college

Touchdowns are always a good thing for any football team, but a recent score on a Massachusetts’ college gridiron had a little extra meaning.

A local Nichols College fan, an 11-year-old girl named Alana Inslee, who suffers from acrodysotosis and hydrocephalus, was honored on her birthday with a special moment on her favorite team's field.

Acrodysostosis causes growth delays and small hands and feet with fingers and toes that are shorter than usual.

Meanwhile, hydrocephalus increases the size of ventricles deep within the brain, putting pressure on the brain and leading to a larger head than usual.

While the Nichols College football team battles various opponents throughout the season, Alana battles her disorders, and sticks around as a fan of the team.

In honor of her dedication, the team honored her by letting her score a touchdown at practice, and had everyone sign a jersey as a gift before taking pictures and videos with her.

The team tweeted out the special moment, saying, "We've had some great touchdowns scored this season on the field, but we think this is the best one!"

Colin Kaepernick's company files for trademark to former QB's image

Colin Kaepernick’s company, Inked Flash, filed for the trademark to a black-and-white image of the former NFL quarterback’s face and hair, ESPN reported Wednesday.

>> Read more trending news 

Inked Flash filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Friday, but it appeared for the first time on the patent office’s website Wednesday. The company’s intent is to use Kaepernick’s image on items such as shampoo, hairspray, jewelry and even lampshades.

Other items include mugs, plates, bowls, drinking glasses. water bottles, tins, afro picks, brushes and combs, coasters, pillowcases, blankets, towels and handkerchiefs, according to the patent office website.

The filing also says the image could be used in association with "providing classes, workshops, seminars and camps in the field of self-empowerment and awareness to properly interact with law enforcement"

Kaepernick became the face of Nike's “Just Do It” 30th anniversary campaign last month. He also has been marketing his own merchandise, including jerseys with the slogan #ImwithKap on them.

The decision to use Kaepernick as the face of its brand was a polarizing move for Nike. Some fans said they would shun the product, while others said they were more likely to buy Nike items as a result.

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since the 2016 season.

Antonio Brown reported $80K stolen day before he allegedly threw furniture, police say

Someone stole $80,000 and a handgun from Antonio Brown’s Florida apartment, a discovery the Steelers wide receiver made a day before he allegedly threw furniture from the 14th-floor balcony and nearly hit a toddler, a police report said.

A Sunny Isles Beach Police Department report on the theft, which was obtained by WPXI in Pittsburgh, said Brown called police on April 23 to report that the money, which had been in a backpack in his closet, was missing, as was a 9 mm pistol.

>> On WPXI.com: PHOTOS: Take a look inside Antonio Brown's $35,000-a-month apartment

Brown had just returned from an 11-day trip out of town when he found the money and gun missing, according to the report. He had been living in the apartment alone since separating from his girlfriend two weeks earlier, he told police.

The money was put in the bag on April 11, he said, a day before he went out of town. When he returned, he found the apartment had been cleaned and laundry had been washed and put away in the closet, the report said.

Security footage showed three women entering and leaving the apartment on April 13, the report said.

The women were housekeepers who were allowed in by security officers after they called Brown, and someone other than Brown answered his phone and gave the women permission to enter the apartment.

The next day, April 24, police said they responded to a call from Brown, who was "agitated" and saying he believed security officials at the complex "set him up." He allegedly threw furniture over the balcony in anger, which prompted a lawsuit from a family saying he nearly hit a young child in the process, the lawsuit said.

The owner of the building also has filed suit against Brown to recoup the cost of the damages to the apartment and furniture.

The day after that, April 25, police responded to another call from Brown to say his black Rolls Royce had been stolen. When police arrived at his apartment to take the report, Brown opened the door, said, "I found the car," and closed the door, according to a police report obtained by WPXI.

Further attempts to speak to Brown were not successful, police said.

The Steelers have declined to comment on the lawsuits against Brown.

Astros fan buys $500 worth of beer for fans after Springer's home run

A Houston Astros fan was so sure that slugger George Springer would hit a homer during Friday’s American League Division Series, he promised to buy beers for fellow spectators sitting in his section. And when Springer connected to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning, Eddie Flores made good on his promise, buying “about $500” worth of beer, the Houston Chronicle reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Springer homered on a full count to give the Astros a 3-0 lead against the Cleveland Indians and Flores paid off, treating fans in Section 104 at Minute Maid Park to some brews.

"I just love my team, man," Flores, 42, told the Chronicle. "I knew Springer was going to hit one, and I wanted everyone to know it. I called it."

Everyone did not order a beer in Rows 2 through 9, but Flores offered the free suds for anyone who wanted the drink. 

He was not going to back down from his promise.

"No way, I loved it," Flores said. "I was celebrating. It went out, we all went crazy and I went looking for the beer man."

When Jose Altuve followed Springer’s homer with a blast of his own, Flores opened his wallet again.

"We bought beer for seven rows straight," Flores told KTRK. "Then, it was back-to-back, so I bought another seven rows worth of beer."

Houston attorney Charles Adams received one of those free beers.

"I mean, I was more excited about the home run, but the beer added a little," Adams told KTRK. "I mean, our section went bananas."

The Astros won 7-2 on Friday. Flores said he'll be back for Game 2 on Saturday afternoon, presumably with his wallet refilled with cash.

Mississippi high school band criticized for halftime show

Fans watching a halftime performance by a Mississippi high school marching band Friday night were outraged at a show that depicted students holding toy guns and an apparent shooting, The Daily Leader of Brookhaven reported.

>> Read more trending news 

According to WLBT, photos taken during the halftime show of a football game showed the visiting Forest Hill High School band dressed as doctors and nurses holding SWAT team members at gunpoint.

The make-believe gunplay at Brookhaven High School comes less than a week after the shooting deaths of Brookhaven policemen Zach Moak and James White, who were killed last Saturday, the Daily Leader reported.

“At no point in time is this acceptable,” Susan Mathes May wrote on Facebook. “At any school, at any performance, in any town.”

Gov. Phil Bryant called the performance unacceptable. 

The halftime performance by the Forest Hills High School band was supposed to depict a hostage scene from the move “John Q,” Jackson Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Errick L. Greene said, WLBT reported.

“The band’s performance does not depict the values and people in our community, and was incredibly insensitive to the students, families, law enforcement officials and the entire Brookhaven community,” Greene said in a release Saturday, WLBT reported.
