Good bye Linsanity; it's Tebow time!

New York loves its sports heroes so what better place for Tim Tebow but the Big Apple. Alright the Christian thing doesn't quite fit in with New York but they love their larger than life figures.

The city is already reacting. The first Tebow billboard officially is in place, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. As of 12:00 p.m. Saturday, Jockey placed a billboard outside Lincoln Tunnel. Bearing a picture of Tebow’s face, the billboard says, “We support Tebow & New York.”


The famous Carnegie Deli in Manhattan will introduce the Jetbow sandwich on Monday, in honor of new Jets backup quarterback, Tim Tebow. The meal will be about 3.5 pounds and contain corned beef, pastrami, roast beef, American cheese, lettuce and tomato on white bread, and will be introduced Monday to coincide with Tebow's press conference.

This is New York so there is no such thing as over hyping someone.

Teacher fired after claims 3rd-graders had oral sex

A Tallulah Elementary School teacher was dismissed after she was in the classroom while two third-graders were reportedly having oral sex under a table.

The incident at Tallulah Elementary was investigated by the school's principal. "These kids were allegedly having oral sex under a table, they were third-graders."

Superintendent Lisa Wilmore concurred with the principal's recommendation that the third-grade teacher be dismissed and the children counseled after a sexual incident reportedly occurred in class last week.

"The principal felt that she was not monitoring the classroom adequately," Wilmore said. "The principal made a decision, and I supported the principal. We have to make sure we have people in these classrooms who are monitoring our students."

"We are working on creating a culture where children can feel safe, loved and protected, and that's quite a challenge," she said.

The district is ranked 59 out of 62 districts in Louisiana for its district performance score, which is based on student achievement, drop outs and attendance data.

Third-graders giving head! I'm stunned.


Student to fight charge he stole cup of ice from cafeteria

A Brookdale Community College student charged with stealing a cup of ice from the school cafeteria will fight this disorderly person’s offense in municipal court Monday.

Cedric Calero, 18, of Manalapan and his family are dumbfounded as to why the manager of the school cafeteria would call the police after his taking a cup of ice without permission on Jan. 31.

“I don't know why they would want to brand him a criminal when all he did was take a cup of ice,” Sharon Jardine, of Keyport, said about her son.

According to the police report, Calero reached over the food service counter when the cashier was not present and took an empty soda cup. He “then filled the cup at the self-service station with ice and possibly a beverage and left the area without paying for the product.” The beverage would have cost $1.80.

Calero, a first-year student at Brookdale, told the Asbury Park Press that he had paid for an order of french fries but the cashier had walked away before he could ask her for a cup. So he took the cup, filled it with ice and sat down with his friends. A few minutes later, the manager approached Calero’s table and asked Calero to follow him. Calero said he offered to pay for the cup after the manager accused him of stealing but the manager said he already called the police.

Why are police charging a kid for taking a cup of ice? Where is the common sense in that move? So now a court is going to waste its time as well on this issue. Isn't there more serious crimes being commited in New Jersey?

Woman fell off pier while texting

Bonnie Miller of Benton Harbor, Michigan decided to tell her story of falling off the south pier in St. Joseph after being distracted by texting while walking.

Police, firefighters, Michigan State Police and the Coast Guard were called to the pier around 9:30 p.m. on Monday after getting a 911 call that three people were in the river channel leading to Lake Michigan.

Earlier in the evening Miller, her husband Greg and her 15-year-old son Quinn had been walking along the pier enjoying the weather. They had just passed the end of the railings that extend only about half the length of the pier when Miller realized she had to send a text.

Miller explained she didn’t realize how close she was to the edge of the pier, she then stumbled after tripping over something and tumbled over into the water. She and her family estimate she fell at least six-feet into the water.

Miller was having trouble staying afloat, her husband Greg jumped into action and dove into the water after her.

“It was very chaotic for a bit,” Greg Miller described. “I just went for it and gave her a big push towards the side of the channel there.”

A bystander, 19-year-old Rebecca Van Zant of Mishawaka, jumped in as well to help the Millers. Quinn Miller, their 15-year-old son, reached down from the pier as Greg Miller pulled and pushed his wife up out of the water onto a ladder attached to the pier.

Firefighters, police and the Coast Guard showed up quickly. A St. Joseph Police Officer threw a floatation device with a rope down to them and assisted them in climbing up the ladder back onto the pier.

Texting and walking is more hazardous then being a NFL lineman. Think it's time to cue up that PSA.

Woman hid urine-filled bottle in vagina to beat drug test; still fails

An X-ray scan of a woman being processed into jail turned up a bottle hidden in an unusual place.

20-year-old Mishelle Salzgeber of Dade City was arrested for violating probation, and as she was booked into jail on Monday, a body scan revealed what appeared to be a pill bottle inside her vagina.

According to the incident report, Salzgeber said it was actually a small vodka bottle, which she removed during a strip search.

The bottle was empty, but Salzgeber allegedly told police it had been filled with someone else's urine, which she tried to use in order to pass a drug test at the probation office.

Unfortunately for Salzgeber, the urine that was in the vodka bottle had also failed the test, which led to her arrest.


Two firemen dressed in drag put out burning car

The firefighters in Sedan, MN hold a “beauty pagent” every year to have a little fun and raise money for equipment. The entirely male firefighting team dresses in ball gowns and struts their stuff for an audience to raise funds.

On St. Patrick’s Day, the crew was headed out of town with their truck to appear in a nearby St. Patrick’s Day parade. Two of the firemen were in their pageant regalia as part of their parade schtick. On their way, they passed a truck that had caught on fire. The fire was beginning to spread to another vehicle, and since the next available fire department was at least 15 miles away, the Sedan crew pulled over and went to work.

Welcome to the 21st century

Panda poop used for some very pricey tea

The world's most expensive cup of tea is set to go on sale in China at $200 a cup - fertilized with panda dung. An Yanshi, a 41-year-old former teacher and journalist, is using the bamboo-eaters' manure to help fertilise the organic green tea, which he believes will make the perfect brew.

Tons of panda excrement, obtained from the nearby breeding centres in mountainous Ya'an in Sichuan province, will be used in growing the tea. Each lot of 50 grams will then go for 22,000 yuan, which according to Mr An makes for the world's dearest cup of tea. Most people use about three grams per cup, meaning each one brewed would set one back over $200. Justifying the rather steep price, Mr An said the profits from the exotic tea would be channelled into an environmental fund. Future batches would also have a lower price tag.

Jessica Simpson: pregnant, horny and bursting with amniotic fluid


Jessica Simpson has been doing the talk show circuit to talk about her pregnancy and as far as I'm concerned she is providing way too much details. We aren't talking about late night cravings for maple walnut ice cream.

Here are some of the best:
  • "I feel like I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo ha...Apparently I have a lot of amniotic fluid, so whenever my water breaks it will be like a fire hydrant! [Jimmy Kimmel]
  • "I just started calling myself 'Swamp Ass. Like, I have swamp ass right now. I had major swamp ass because I was wearing these Spanx to hold in my gut… It's like the bayou up in that [area]." [Jay Leno]
  • "There is only one [baby], there is only one girl… But I did get knocked up by a baller ... A big football player." [Ellen DeGeneres]
  • "I am definitely ‘feeling intimate- and how! I'm kind of unstoppable right now. The Big O is, like, the biggest O ever!" [Ryan Seacrest]

New Israeli law bans underweight models in ads

A new Israeli law prohibits the employment of underweight models. The legislation passed Monday aims to put a stop to the extremes, and by extension ease the pressure on youngsters to emulate the skin-and-bones models, often resulting in dangerous eating disorders.

The new law poses a groundbreaking challenge to a fashion industry widely castigated for promoting anorexia and bulimia. Its sponsors say it could become an example for other countries grappling with the spread of the life-threatening disorders.

It's especially important in Israel, which, like other countries, is obsessed by models, whose every utterance and dalliance is fodder for large pictures and racy stories in the nation's newspapers. Supermodel Bar Refaeli is considered a national hero by many. She is not unnaturally thin.

The new law requires models to produce a medical report no older than three months at every shoot for the Israeli market, stating that they are not malnourished by World Health Organization standards.

The U.N. agency relies on the body mass index, calculated by factors of weight and height. WHO says a body mass index below 18.5 indicates malnutrition. According to that standard, a woman 1.72 meters tall (5-feet-8) should weigh no less than 119 pounds (54 kilograms).

Also, any advertisement published for the Israeli market must have a clearly written notice disclosing if its models were made to look thinner by digital manipulation. The law does not apply to foreign publications sold in Israel.


Man accidently photographs himself while installing a hidden camera

New York police say a college employee inadvertently photographed himself planting a motion-activated camera in a women's locker room at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

They tell local media that 56-year-old Thomas McMartin, of Hoosick Falls, was arrested Friday and pleaded not guilty to felony charges of unlawful surveillance and burglary. McMartin declined to comment.

The college says he was fired from his job as a heating and cooling supervisor and barred from the upstate New York campus soon after the camera was found.

Troy police Capt. John Cooney says the camera was installed March 8. It captured still images of several women changing before one of them noticed something wrong with the ceiling.

He says there's no evidence of any earlier spying or other cameras, but the investigation is continuing.

Oops. Well Tom at least you know that the set up worked. Next time don't be standing in front of the camera.


Maria Sharapova loses a point to Rory Mcilroy

A day after becoming the No. 1 golfer in the world Rory McIlroy took some time out of his busy schedule to watch Caroline Wozniacki's exhibition match against Maria Sharapova at Madison Square Garden. He and Wozniacki are dating.

McIlroy soon found himself out on the court with a racket in his hand as much to the crowd's amusement, Wozniacki had invited him to play a point against Sharapova, just for fun.

The weird part? McIlroy won the point.

Giving a guy oral sex without consent is rape?

A woman has been ordered to stand trial accused of breaking into a man's home and raping him.

Rebecca Helen Elder, 39, of Parkside, appeared in the District Court this morning.

She pleaded not guilty to one count of aggravated serious criminal trespass in a place of residence, and one count of rape.

Prosecution documents, filed with the court, allege both offences took place at a suburban location between September 20 and September 23 last year.

At trial, prosecutors will allege Elder broke into a house while its male occupant - who cannot be named - was lawfully on the premises.

They will further allege she broke in with the intention of committing a further offence of rape.

Finally, prosecutors will allege Elder raped the man by performing an act of oral sex without his consent.

How can this charge ever stick? In the history of mankind has there ever been a heterosexual guy who turned down oral? Well maybe when his wife was walking in the door. Then the only reaction to save your skin is to scream "rape!" I'm still trying to sort this out in my mind. This woman breaks into the guy's home and pulls down his pants and he is yelling stop, don't put than in your mouth. Or was he yelling don't stop?

Maple Leafs preparing for their annual spring ritual

Tonight's one-sided, inept effort against the Boston Bruin hopefully ended the silly talk about the Leafs still having a chance to make the playoffs. The six-game series against the Bruins would convince most people that the Leafs roster needs to be blown up. It was embarrassing.

Only 13 shots on net. Tim Thomas must have had difficulty in staying awake. Meanwhile the Bruins fans happily chanted "Thank you Kessel" and who can blame them. No Bruins player has 35 goals but no one in Boston misses him. When the game gets tough, Kessel looks real small out there.

It seems each season the Leafs aren't good enough to make the playoffs but insist on making a futile push to anyway. The only thing they accomplish is to move the team out a lottery pick and the possibility of picking first overall.

Same-sex marriages are fine but not between Leafs and Sens fans

During a break in play during last Saturday's hockey game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators, Alicia was brought out on the ice where her girlfriend Christina surprised her with a proposal. Even though Christina is a Senators fan and Alicia was rooting for the Maple Leafs, Alicia said yes—as the mascot helpfully informed everyone with his sign—and the crowd went wild.

Burt really a Sens fan marrying a Leafs fan? It will never survive.

Company sends out "time bombs" as part of ad campaign

Staff at a German computer company were left red-faced when a stunt to promote their company caused a string of bomb scares in offices across the country. Convar Deutschland thought they had come up with an exciting way to attract new clients, when they began gluing hard drives to alarm clocks and sending them to companies with a note reading, “Your time is running out.”

They sent out a total of 40 “time bombs” to businesses, shops, a handful of embassies and even the offices of a newspaper group. But instead of drumming up custom, the stunt caused mayhem as terrified recipients called the police and prompted building evacuations. In what was perhaps an overestimation on Convar’s behalf about how well known they were, the Rhineland-Palatinate company thought that the idea would be perfect for promoting their speciality - data recovery.

They hadn’t reckoned with panic that ensued, which saw police units being called to suspected letter bombs in cities across the country including Bonn, Berlin and Frankfurt on Thursday afternoon. The offices of regional paper Express were evacuated in Bonn, leaving 230 employees standing around on the street while bomb disposal experts examined the parcel.

“To raise awareness of the dangers of losing data, we sent a comic-book style alarm clock to symbolise the fact that time is running out on data safety,” the company said in a statement. “At absolutely no point did we mean to threaten, or injure, anyone.” And although no one was hurt, Convar may end up incurring damages, as police are currently deciding whether the company should reimburse them for wasting their time.

I remember real Canadian winters

What ever happened to winter? You know, the old, Canadian styled winter.

I hate to sound like on old cliche but when I was younger we had real winters. Temperatures would stay at -20C for several weeks. We played hockey on outdoor rinks. During March break we would go skiing.

I'm not complaining. But it's so strange to essentially go without snow and not using the snowblower even once this winter. My bulbs are bursting to the surface. I bought a bag of ice melter but haven't opened the bag yet.

Food -related injuries

Family charged with stripping at school

Some students at Upper Darby High School evidently got an impromptu anatomy lesson Friday afternoon when a Germantown mother and her three children stripped to their skins in the school parking lot.

After police arrived about 1 p.m. and found them nude inside a van -- their arms locked and chanting religious slogans -- the four were charged with defiant trespass, disorderly conduct, and open lewdness, said Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Chitwood said the woman, identified as Sarah Butler, 44, of the 100 block of West Manheim Street, showed up at the Delaware County school about 10 a.m. with her children, Joanne Butler, 23; Bessie Butler, 22, and 14-year-old son.

Sarah Butler demanded to see a student who is her biological child, Chitwood said.

After her request was denied, the four lay on the ground in a parking space and began chanting. Eventually they shed their clothing and then climbed into a nearby van.

School security officers notified Upper Darby police, who placed the four under arrest. The 14-year-old has been released to the custody of his father.


Homeless man poses as woman for medical care

A homeless man in California is accused of stealing a woman's identity for 13 years and racking up more than $100,000 in medical care expenses.

Police in San Clemente say they found Perla Serrano -- who appeared to be a woman -- sleeping Sunday in a public area. But a deputy noted a hospital wristband with a different name than the one the person gave. Soon, the 51-year-old suspect's gender became in doubt, according to

“The deputy called San Clemente Hospital and was informed by San Clemente personnel that the person was actually a man, not a woman,” Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino told ABC.

The victim, who is only being named as "Perla K," has apparently suffered a long ordeal because of the alleged identity theft.
