Why These Preemie Parents Are Sharing Their NICU Photos
Huffington Post - about 1 month
On Sep. 23, 2015, Jourdan and Matt Moore welcomed their twin son and daughter, Jaxson and Cadence. The babies were born four months early and went on to spend over three months in the NICU. The experience was difficult for the Moores to say the least, but now the twins are healthy and thriving at home. Jourdan and Matt are sharing photos from the NICU, along with images of their progress, to offer a message of hope to other parents in that difficult situation. On this day... One year ago October 16th Jaxson fit inside his daddy's hand. He was 23 days old and weighed 1lb 8oz. Exactly one week prior he had a breathing spell unlike any others. I was there with him when he stopped breathing and his heart dropped so low it almost stopped. I watched an amazing team of NICU staff jump into action. His tiny body was still and gray as one nurse gave chest compressions with her thumbs, another breathed for him with a bag, and a doctor re-intubated him placing the tube down hi ...

Dolphins keep Tannehill out, to start Moore at Pittsburgh
Yahoo News - about 2 months
Injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill will remain sidelined for the Miami Dolphins for Sunday's NFL playoff game at Pittsburgh with veteran reserve Matt Moore making the start for Miami. Tannehill threw for 2,995 yards and 19 touchdowns with 12 interceptions for the Dolphins until suffering sprained left knee ligaments December 11 against Arizona. Moore, a 10-year veteran who had thrown only 30 passes over the prior four seasons as a Dolphins backup, was called upon as a replacement and sparked Miami to triumphs at the New York Jets and Buffalo to clinch a playoff berth before a season-ending home loss to New England.

Dolphins stay in playoff hunt with 34-13 rout of Jets
Yahoo News - 2 months
(The Sports Xchange) - Matt Moore, making his first start in almost five years, threw a career-high four touchdown passes Saturday night as the Miami Dolphins ensured they would keep pace in the AFC wild-card race with a 34-13 rout of the New York Jets in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Dolphins (9-5) won for the eighth time in nine games to clinch their first winning season since 2008 and at least momentarily move into the final wild-card spot in the AFC, a half-game ahead of the Denver Broncos. The Broncos, who play the New England Patriots on Sunday, hold the strength of victory tiebreaker over Miami.

RNC Gears Up For A Contested Convention
Huffington Post - about 1 year
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The Republican National Committee has started preparing for a contested national convention, which would follow the primary season should no GOP candidate for president win enough delegates to secure the party's nomination. While calling the need for such plans ultimately unlikely, several GOP leaders at the party's winter meeting in South Carolina told The Associated Press on Wednesday that such preliminary planning is nonetheless actively underway. They stressed it had little to do with concerns about the candidacy of billionaire businessman Donald Trump, describing the early work instead as a necessary contingency given the deeply divided Republican field. With less than three weeks to go before the Feb. 1 leadoff Iowa caucuses, there are still a dozen major Republican candidates in the race. "Certainly, management of the committee has been working on the eventuality, because we'd be wrong not to," said Bruce Ash, chairman of the RNC's rules commit ...

The Cavs Pulled A Controversial Video Skit Of A Man Throwing His Girlfriend, And The Outrage Is Justified
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
When we heard the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled a controversial video they had made of a man tossing his girlfriend, we tried to have an open mind. Perhaps it was just a typically alarmist, knee-jerk Internet overreaction to something that wasn’t that big of a deal. But then we watched. And it wasn't. The video, which was reportedly shown during last night’s game in Cleveland, was pulled from the Internet either Wednesday night or Thursday morning, but not before it was ripped by writer Steve McPherson and uploaded to YouTube. The video features a male Cavaliers fan and his girlfriend dancing in the kitchen. Then, she reveals she’s wearing a Chicago Bulls T-shirt under her apron. Upon realizing which way his girlfriend's fandom leans, the boyfriend actively throws his girlfriend across the room instead of catching her à la Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in "Dirty Dancing" -- “(I've Had) The Time of My Life” plays in the background -- or even passively letting her fall. Yes. The ...

Tim Tebow Doesn't Suffer From An Anti-Christian Bias
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
The Philadelphia Eagles signed Tim Tebow to a one-year contract. Predictably the sports world picked up the story and ran with it, eliciting responses from supporters and those who doubt Tebow will succeed. Some conservatives who wear their faith on their sleeve think any criticism of Tebow reflects an anti-Christian bias. They think it is anti-religious bigotry, fomented by atheist haters. It fits with the new narrative of religious persecution that some are willing to peddle. If that's the case, then the NFL wouldn't be very popular, because there are so many players who are deeply religious and let everyone know about it. The Seattle Seahawks aren't cutting Russell Wilson, the quarterback who cited divine intervention as the reason why his team slipped past the Green Bay Packers and into the Super Bowl. Instead, they're poised to throw a lot more money at him. Over and over again, players "thank the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior" before answering a single interview ...

American League Playoff Game Capsules
Fox News - over 3 years
Boston, MA ( - The Boston Red Sox used 7 2/3 terrific innings from Jon Lester and an offensive barrage to gain the early upper hand in the American League Division Series, cruising to a 12-2 Game 1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at a jam-packed Fenway Park. Lester (1-0) gave up solo homers to Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist that staked Tampa Bay to an initial 2-0 edge, but yielded just one other hit and three walks before exiting to a rousing ovation with two outs in the eighth. The left-hander received ample support from his teammates, with the AL East champs shelling Rays starter Matt Moore (0-1) for eight runs -- seven earned -- and eight hits in the 17- game winner's 4 1/3 innings of work. Every Boston regular collected at least one hit, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI, Shane Victorino driving in two runs on a 3-for-4 day and Jonny Gomes producing a two-run doubl ...

WATCH: The First NFL Highlight Of The New Season!
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Football is back! The game may have opened with a fumble, the preseason score may have been meaningless and Tony Romo may have been a spectator but the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins played each other on Sunday in the annual Hall Of Fame Game. In the second quarter, Cowboys linebacker DeVonte Holloman produced the first highlight of the 2013 NFL preseason. The rookie came up with an interception after a pass thrown by Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore was tipped. Holloman returned that errant toss 75 yards for a touchdown. That score staked the Boys to a 17-0 lead. They would hold on to win 24-20. "Man, that was exciting," Holloman said after the game, via The Associated Press. WATCH VIDEO ABOVE A sixth-round draft pick out of South Carolina, Holloman signed to a four-year contract with the Cowboys before the team's first rookie mini-camp practice, according to ESPN Dallas.

Gay Marriage Bans, Repeals And Lawsuits Intensify In States
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Across the country, this week's landmark Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage have energized activists and politicians on both sides of the debate. Efforts to impose bans – and to repeal them – have taken on new intensity, as have lawsuits by gays demanding the right to marry. The high court, in two 5-4 decisions Wednesday, opened the way for California to become the 13th state to legalize gay marriage, and it directed the federal government to recognize legally married same-sex couples. A federal appeals court on Friday lifted its freeze on same-sex marriages in California, saying the state is required to issue licenses to gay couples starting immediately. But the rulings, while hailed by gay-rights activists, did not declare a nationwide right for gays to marry. Instead, they set the stage for state-by-state battles over one of America's most contentious social issues. Already, some of those battles are heating up. In Pennsylvania, the only Northeast st ...

    Age 27
    During the offseason, Moore was battling for the starting QB role against newly drafted Ryan Tannehill and newly signed David Garrard. Moore became the second quarterback.

  • 2011
    Age 26
    On October 2, 2011 Moore entered the game against the Chargers in the 1st quarter after Henne went down with a shoulder injury.
    More Details Hide Details He completed 17 of 26 passes for 167 yards and an interception, compiling a 67.3 quarterback rating. On November 6 he became the first Miami quarterback since Chad Pennington in 2008 to throw three touchdown passes in a game, in their 31–3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He repeated that feat in week 11, blowing out the Bills 35–8, and had the highest QB rating of the week.
    Moore was signed by the Dolphins on July 28, 2011 to back up Chad Henne.
    More Details Hide Details He switched numbers, from 3 to 8.
  • 2010
    Age 25
    After sitting out for 3 straight games, Moore was again declared the Panthers starting quarterback on October 18, 2010, following poor play by Clausen.
    More Details Hide Details In his first game back as a starter against the San Francisco 49ers, Moore completed 28 passes on 41 attempts for 308 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, setting career highs in yards and completions. In a week 9 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Moore injured his shoulder after a hit from Sedrick Ellis. He was placed on injured reserve by the Panthers, ending his season.
    On September 20, 2010, Moore was removed as the Panthers starting quarterback in favor of rookie Jimmy Clausen, after throwing 4 interceptions in the first two games.
    More Details Hide Details
    Moore was declared the starter for the 2010 season after Delhomme's release.
    More Details Hide Details Despite this, the Carolina Panthers drafted rookie Jimmy Clausen with their second pick (48th overall) of the 2010 NFL draft. Though Moore had clearly established himself as the Panther's number one quarterback, he faced pressure for the starting job from Clausen, possibly resulting in his poor play throughout the rest of the season. Moore suffered a concussion during the season opener at the New York Giants, and he was benched the following week in a loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following poor play.
    The strong finish by Moore and the Panthers, combined with earlier poor play by Jake Delhomme, led to speculation that Moore would challenge, if not replace, Jake Delhomme's role as the starting quarterback for the 2010 season despite Delhomme's large contract.
    More Details Hide Details This turned out be the case as Delhomme was cut from the Panthers on March 4, 2010.
  • 2009
    Age 24
    In his five games as a starter for the 2009 season, Moore threw eight touchdown passes with one interception.
    More Details Hide Details
    After starter Jake Delhomme broke his finger in a week 12 loss to the New York Jets, Moore started against Tampa Bay on December 6, 2009, the following week.
    More Details Hide Details He completed 14 of 20 passes for 161 yards and an interception, en route to a 16–6 Panthers victory. The following week he completed 15 of 30 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown in a 20–10 loss to the New England Patriots. On December 20 (in his 6th start) Moore had the best game of his career when he led the Panthers to a 26–7 upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings. In the victory he completed 21 of 33 passes for 299 yards, 3 touchdowns, and interceptions, and improved to a career 4–2 as a starter. He drew praise from head coach John Fox and top receiver Steve Smith, who caught 9 passes from Moore for 157 yards and a score. On December 27 Moore completed 15 passes on 20 attempts for 171 yards, and for the second week in a row, three touchdowns and no interceptions, as Carolina beat the New York Giants 41–9. Moore had a career-high 139.8 passer rating. The victory came during the final game to be played in Giants Stadium and essentially eliminated the Giants from the playoffs. The Giants' home loss was their worst since 1998. Moore again drew praise from analysts, including Tony Dungy who said that Moore "looked liked a pro-bowler".
    Moore saw his first action of the 2009 Season when backup quarterback Josh McCown was injured during the Panthers Week 1 loss to the Eagles.
    More Details Hide Details Moore finished with 6 of 11 passes for 63 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Moore also played briefly against the Arizona Cardinals, attempting one pass which was incomplete.

  • 2007
    Age 22
    After a string of ineffective performances from Carr and Vinny Testaverde, Moore started his first NFL game on December 16, 2007 against the Seattle Seahawks.
    More Details Hide Details He led the Panthers to victory against the Seahawks while completing 19 of 27 passes for 208 yards without a turnover. After a tough loss against Dallas the following week, where he completed 15 of 28 passes for 182 yards, a touchdown and an interception, he went 15 of 24 for 174 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a road win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Moore was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for December after these performances.
    Moore saw his first regular season action October 7, 2007 against the New Orleans Saints in the 5th game of the season.
    More Details Hide Details Quarterback David Carr (who was playing in place of injured starter Jake Delhomme) left the game with a back injury after being sacked near the end of the first quarter. His first NFL completion was a 43-yard pass to Keary Colbert, but his playing time was brief as Carr returned to the field near the end of the first half.
    Moore was not selected in the 2007 NFL Draft, but was later signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys.
    More Details Hide Details Despite completing 21 of 29 passes for 182 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions, while posting passer ratings topping 100 in two of his three preseason games, Moore was waived on September 1, with the Cowboys intending to sign him to their practice squad had he passed through waivers. He was claimed off waivers by the Carolina Panthers the following day.
  • 2005
    Age 20
    Although he also strongly considered Colorado State, Moore enrolled at Oregon State in January 2005 and participated in spring training with the team.
    More Details Hide Details Head coach Mike Riley announced him as the leader on the depth chart entering the 2005 season. He finished the season with 2,711 yards passing, the ninth-highest total for a single season at OSU. His .594 completion percentage was third among the 20-best single season yardage performances in school history. Moore injured his right knee in the second quarter of the 10th game of the season against Stanford and missed the remainder of the year. His 271.1 yards passing per game was second in the Pac-10, trailing only USC's Matt Leinart (293.5). Making yet another record-breaking debut, he threw for 367 yards in the season opener against Portland State, the most ever by a Beaver quarterback in his first start. Moore threw for a career-high 436 yards against Arizona, had 317 yards at Louisville, and 311 against Arizona State. He hit Mike Hass on a 63-yard touchdown strike against Washington State that gave OSU the lead 37–33 after the team trailed 30–13 late in the second quarter. He also had two 58-yard passes—one to Anthony Wheat-Brown in the team’s upset of No. 18 California in Berkeley and the other one week later (again to Hass) in his return to the Rose Bowl.
