As I was perusing Crimefeed, my new favorite website (I guess it's not my favorite, but it's interesting)... there was a story that will make you smile. A great-grandmother in Florida fought off a 300 pound would-be robber with a baseball bat. Got him good, too! She heard a noise outside, grabbed the bat, and yelled at the man. He charged her, and she hit him with the bat. He got up, ran away, and hid, but the police found him easily as he had shed his clothes along with way. Wacky, huh?
And speaking of bats, the Astros are doing well. Right now they are 17 and 11 which is .607%.
And continuing with sports, the Rockets have had a good season, but the round 2 first playoff game did not go as well as it should have. I usually dislike when fans blame the refs, but, interestingly enough, this time, it was true! In the last two minutes of the game, the NBA acknowledged there were at least 3 missed calls, one of them being on the potential game-tying shot. Here is one of them:
These 3 calls completely changed the outcome of the game. Warrior win 104 to 100. If you're interested, you can read about it here. We'll get 'em next time!
And now some funnies.
|One of my pet peeves!|
|I hate this one, too! There's such a thing as a strawberry or blueberry, but there is no such thing as a liberry!|
|Oh, how I wish this were true!|
