A reminder to check back this afternoon for the announcement of The Moron of the Week! Lots of great nominees this week.


-Boston Celtics General Manager, Danny Ainge, suffered a minor heart attack on Thursday. The former BYU basketball player, and Toronto Blue Jays baseball player is said to be resting comfortably at Massachusetts General Hospital. Best wishes to Danny for a quick recovery.

-The Yankees opened their new stadium yesterday, but they did not get the result they were looking for. The Bronx Bombers fell 10-2 to the Cleveland Indians. Jorge Posada was the first Yankee to go deep in the new ballpark, but it was a grand slam by Grady Sizemore that proved to be the difference in the ballgame.


-Ashton Kutcher has won his battle against CNN. No this isn't a lawsuit we are talking about here, Kutcher was the first to reach 1 million followers on Twitter. He proposed a challenge to his fans to make him reach the milestone before CNN's Breaking News feed hit the seven figure mark. I will now stab myself in the eye for providing this story to you.

-Susan Boyle, the Scottish woman who displayed her talents on the television show, Britan's Got Talent, says she is 'gobsmacked' by her overnight stardom. After appearing on numerous morning talk shows yesterday, the 47 year old woman says she would love to sing for the queen, but is really just enjoying the moment. Good luck to you Susan.


-Since when is posting a $966 million loss a good thing? Welcome to today's economy! Citigroup posted their smallest quarterly loss since 2007. The loss resulted in about 18 cents per share, which is nearly half of the original 34 cents per share that was projected. I guess in today's economic climate we will take what we can get, right?

-President Barack Obama is heading to the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad today just a day after the President lifted limits on visits by Americans to Cuba. Even though Cuba is not invited to the summit, it seems like the focus of Obama will be on Cuba.

  1. I too dislike Ashton, and apparently Dane Cook does too. He wrote this on his Twitter after Ashton's victory:

    "Congrats ashy i remember hitting 1 million myspace friends 2 years ago then 2.4 million this year. yawn .... enjoy it cool hat." (about 8 hours ago)
