Girl, 13, saves pets from burning home

Her house was on fire and she was home alone, but 13-year-old Max Foster knew just what to do.
“I was the only one and I was freaking out,” said Max. “I just took it step by step.”

I'm glad my rabbit never started a fire like that.

The Many Faces of Philip Rivers

I know I'm missing some, but I figured if someone wants to mock Philip Rivers after throwing an interception or fumbling away a win I could have them all in one easy to use place.  I plan to update this post as I find more.

If you're going to shoot yourself, do it right

Man Who Shot Himself Faces Endangerment Charges

Why make up a headline when the criminal does it for you?  "A man who shot himself in the leg with two young children present faces new charges of reckless endangerment on Friday."  Yep, did it himself.

Oh, but wait, it gets better: Police say the .357-caliber revolver apparently fired while Brown was spinning its cylinder while holding a finger near its trigger.

“You’re seeing a three dimensional graphic image of what it looks like,” said Cantrell. “It’s not just a picture in a magazine.”

Keith Cantrell was so impressed by the Body Worlds exhibit at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, he volunteered to have his body put on display after he dies.

Yeah, really.  Link.

Why is Norv Turner still coaching?

Why is Norv Turner still coaching?

Rivers.  Norv needs some help, and the word around the league is he's getting it if he likes it or not, but he just can't run a whole team.  He can't even notice Ryan Matthews is missing in a crucial overtime situation.  He can't manage a clock.  He needs help.

But, Rivers likes Norv.  And he's willing to tell the owners that.  And people who like the Chargers like Rivers, so it's our own damn fault we have Norv.  It's easy to hate Norv, but at the same time the Chargers had an awesome turnaround once they scraped up Jared Gaither from KC.  They stopped getting Rivers hit every play, and stopped losing.

Maybe Norv is better than he seems.  After all, people were calling for Tom Coughlin's head after the season, and he got his second ring.  Against Tommy and Billy, so he has that going for him.  Which is nice.

But Norv needs to get better with his own teams.  The Redskins, well, that's not the coach that made the mistakes in free agency and the draft.  The Raiders?  You want to blame Norv for Al Davis?  Unfortunately he's now painted himself into the succeed with AJ Smith category.  That's like surviving with five dingos and five cats for a year in some caves.  I'll bet on the Newts.

Norv has some rings from somewhere in Texas, but maybe he can help a team that matters get one.  Weirder things have happened, like Eli beating up Billy twice.  Or Jizzel marrying Tommy.

The Fox Effect

This pretty well sums up why we're stuck where we're at with politics. Everyone seems to hate corporate money, but everyone seems to be swayed by financial interests. The Lieberals obviously need this money, so they can buy off Satan until they can make sure rMoney has secured the nomination. End corporate money!

Oh, but if you have time, please click my ads while commenting furiously about how wrong I am.
