On Sunday, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva was the lone Pittsburgh Steeler to come out of the stadium tunnel for the national anthem. Fans seemed to approve of the former Army Ranger’s show of patriotism, buying enough jerseys to make Villanueva’s #78 the best-selling garment in the entire league Monday. But during a press conference Monday, Villanueva apologized for his actions, saying, “Unfortunately, I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally. Every single time I see that picture of me, standing by myself, I feel embarrassed. When everyone sees an image of me standing by myself, everybody thinks the team and the Steelers are not behind me, and that is absolutely wrong.

Workers at a McDonald’s in Missouri said a pay-it-forward chain started by one generous patron went on for an hour, totaling 125 customers. Manager Heidi Waters said a woman who is a regular at the eatery picked up the tab about 7:15 a.m. on Thursday for the vehicle in line behind her. Waters said such generosity is not uncommon, and often the recipients will keep up the trend, but it usually only lasts for 5 to 10 cars. However, that day the pay-it-forward chain went on for about an hour, totaling 125 customers who picked up others’ tabs. “It makes us feel that we’re appreciated, even in a McDonald’s. You know that the community appreciates the hard work that we do,” Waters said. “It leaks out into the community, and it leaks out into our crew.” (Read more from WLOX)
