Spending money - 05/15/14

The Tennessee Titans signed two of their draft picks today.  Marqueston Huff and DaQuan Jones are in the fold on the eve of rookie orientation.

It must feel great for these two players.  They just left college where money can be tight, and now they have all the spending money they'll need for a while.

Players in college talk about not having enough to eat and going hungry.  I'm not sure Huff or Jones ever felt this way.  But safe to say, they won't anymore now that they have put their "John Hancock's" on their first NFL contracts.

Congrats guys!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week.

She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
