Apparently there was a need to publish a story verifying that Florence is NOT full of sharks. (Have we really gotten THAT stupid in America?)

This seems like a no-brainer: the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday passed a bill making it illegal to eat cats and dogs in the United States (it’s still legal in 44 states!)

The slow march to the post season continues with another loss to the Brewers and a slide back to just one game ahead of the Brew Crew in the NL Central. Today’s desperately needed day off will be spent in DC facing off against the Nats in a game rescheduled from Sunday.  The suspense is almost unbearable.

On the bright side, there’s football this weekend. 🙂

Is Henry Cavill out as Superman? Is he fighting back to keep the role? Get the popcorn! This is gonna get good.

South Park has launched a campaign to cancel South Park. The 22nd season of the series kicks off September 26.

Mark your calendars: The Emmys are this Sunday! We’ll be manning the Twitterz!
