Donald Trump 'serious' about buying NFL team ... supposedly

Donald Trump is back in the headlines. That itself isn't really news. But this is.

"There's been a lot of speculation as to who will buy the Buffalo Bills. And one of those people is Donald Trump, and it is confirmed the billionaire celebrity is truly interested in buying the team." (Via WKBW

"It's unclear at this point whether he'd pursue the purchase by himself or with a group, but his lawyer tells us he has more than enough money to do it all himself." (Via WGRZ

Yes, the real estate, TV, casino and everything-else mogul is reportedly in talks to buy the Bills. Rumors about him being interested started a few weeks ago.

But they weren't taken too seriously. Trump is known to be a man who loves publicity stunts. Still, Trump says he's serious about his interest in becoming an NFL owner. 

He told The Buffalo News: "I'm going to give it a heavy shot. I would love to do it, and if I can do it, I'm keeping it in Buffalo."

The Buffalo News reports Trump has met with Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon twice — but didn't mention just how serious those talks were. 

When talks about Trump possibly being interested surfaced weeks ago, Deadspin posted this article, with the writer saying: "​We know this game, of course. Trump always says 'maybe' before he says 'no.' We stopped believing him years ago when he said he was considering running for this or that political office." 

And even if he does go through with it, he might have some hurdles to jump, as ESPN's Adam Caplan points out. 

"Remember this — he's got to get rid of his casino holdings. You cannot be involved in gambling and own an NFL team."

And there's also an article by the Toronto Sun that suggests even rocker Bon Jovi could be interested in purchasing the team and moving them north of border. That could make for quite the interesting bidding war, you know, if any of this is for real.

Cognitive function: Is it all downhill from age 24?

To most, the term "over the hill" means a person is at least past the age of 50. But a group of researchers out of Canada say it might actually start at age 24. Before you freak out, though, let's take a look at the study. 

Researchers from Simon Fraser University studied a group of people between the ages 16-44 and found that cognitive motor performance begins deteriorating around age 24. (Via YouTube / Jordan Couch)

To determine this, they compared the people's performance against one another when playing the real-time strategy video game "StarCraft II."

In a press release, a university rep says collecting the data this way was invaluable because "performance records, which can be readily replayed, constitute big data. ... They present 870 hours worth of real-time cognitive moves performed at varied skill levels." 

According to The Washington Post, players who were 24 years old were the youngest ones showing slower cognitive function. 

But "over the hill" might be a bit drastic. When we say slower, we mean like milliseconds. The Vancouver Sun says the difference in the response time between a 24-year-old and that of a 39-year-old was 150 milliseconds, or .15 seconds.

Don't write the older players off just yet. The Huffington Post reports the lead doctoral student, Joe Thompson, said, "Older players, though slower, seem to compensate by employing simpler strategies and using the game's interface more efficiently than younger players, enabling them to retain their skill, despite cognitive motor-speed loss."

Thompson says the study, which was published in PLOS One, proves that although people slow down with age, they make up for it by learning to adapt quickly to the constantly changing world around them. For example, in the video game, the older players used cheats and shortcuts to stay ahead. 

See, there is a silver lining.

Driver of car backs up over man, killing him

Family members are trying to wrap their heads around a tragic accident in Lancaster after a neighbor killed a man when she backed over him and drug him several feet, according to police.

But they couldn't, and he died in front of them.
Police were called to Rutledge Street shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday. They said a neighbor lost control of her car and dragged Peay several feet.The car ended up in a ditch with Peay pinned underneath.

Lloyd Peay, Jeremy's uncle, was in his house when he heard someone screaming.

He said he ran to the front of the car and noticed Jeremy Peay was stuck underneath it, lying on his back.

He said Jeremy begged him to get the car off of him.  

Lloyd Peay said he ran to get help and at the same time police arrived. He said when he ran back to the car, his nephew was dead.   

No one has been charged and police are still investigating the incident.
