She hadn’t done splits and high kicks since her cheerleading days in high school, but 40-year-old dance instructor Kriste Lewis set a lofty goal: to try out for the New Orleans Saints cheerleading squad, known as the Saintsations.Faced with competition from women who mostly ranged in age from 18 to 28, Lewis never thought she’d make the team. And then, she did.“I wanted to set a goal for myself, and the audition was a specific date that required specific training, so my goal was just to make it to the audition,” said Lewis, who lives with her husband and two sons in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, about 100 miles northeast of New Orleans. “Honestly, I really did not think I was going to make it.” (Photo: Bill Haber/The Associated Press)

Teardrops for murders. Spider webs for prison time. Penal code numbers for crimes committed.

Criminals have long used tattoos as indelible ink on their own bodily rap sheet. And for just as long, police have used tattoos as a way to identify suspects, a distinguishing characteristic to jog a memory or catch the public’s eye.

But only rarely does body art play a pivotal role as evidence posited as proof of wrongdoing.

Prosecutors trying to convict former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez in a pair of homicide cases could try to use the one-time football star’s tattoos against him: They are seeking the artists who worked on Hernandez, saying they could be witnesses.

Johnny Manziel’s fall in draft only adds to his legendJohnny Manziel, the frat boy college football star whose dating resume includes a Maxim model and an underwear model, who has pending trademark requests for two of his nicknames, and who is mentioned in a Drake song, could use some humility in his life.And he got that in spades on Thursday night.Not only is he going to a city that LeBron left, where disappointment is destiny, and where first-round quarterbacks (Tim Crouch and Brady Quinn) are hatched with the overall patience of baby chicks in a furnace. But instead of going to the Cleveland Browns with the No. 4 or even the No. 8 picks, he slipped all the way down to 22nd.In the process, Manziel got to live a bit like one of us, except in real time with a camera focused on his face.

The Quarterback Conundrum: For months, the Browns have analyzed college quarterbacks as if they were looking to buy a new house. They’ve inspected each thoroughly, measured them, timed them, interviewed them, checked and double-checked their backgrounds to find out if one can lift them from NFL irrelevance.The Browns are expected to use one of their two first-round picks Thursday night on a quarterback. Will it be Johnny Manziel, the dynamic mystery man in this year’s draft, at No. 4? Or will they wait until No. 26 and grab one of the quarterbacks likely to slide. Or should they wait even longer and select a second-tier QB like Aaron Murray or A.J. McCarron? Will they trade up, move down, punt?Based on a review of more than 60 mock drafts by the National Post, a quarterback could be taken in any of the first eight spots, although the likely scenarios have Cleveland at No. 4 and Minnesota at No. 8 being the ones to pull the trigger.But almost anything can happen, especially if teams decide to start moving up or down from their initial starting spots.The National Post takes a look at the conundrum created by the three high-profile quarterbacks in this year’s draft.
