U.S. Customs officials detained two-time British Olympic gold medal track star Mo Farah for questioning on suspicion of being a terrorist. “I couldn’t believe it,” Farah told The Sun. “Because of my Somali origin I get detained every time I come through U.S. Customs.” U.S. Customs officials questioned Farah as he headed to Portland, Ore., to spend Christmas with his family. He moved there from Great Britain in 2011 to work with legendary trainer Alberto Salazar at Nike’s headquarters.

St. Louis Rams make monetary donation to police charity

The St. Louis Rams organization donated an unspecified amount of money to The Backstoppers, an organization which helps families of police officers, paramedics and firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty.

Rondo channels Brady, accepts blame for Celtics’ struggles
