Donald Driver Surprises Old Lady Who Is His Biggest Fan

Being snobby East Coast elites, we've never understood the people of Wisconsin and their Packers. I guess the public owns the team, so that's something. Even so: These folks love the Packers even more than the team's shared ownership would dictate. The people consider every last Packer a beautiful soul, an angel… » 2/07/13 1:15pm 2/07/13 1:15pm

Tree-Poisoner Harvey Updyke Is "Meaner Than Anyone In The World," Writes Little Girl

The trees at Auburn's Toomer's Corner: not doing so hot. "Aesthetically dead if not actually dead," the university said last week. (Still, they might be doing better than Harvey Updyke, who is living in his car in the woods as he awaits trial.) The oaks received a massive pruning earlier this month, in yet another… » 8/22/12 12:10pm 8/22/12 12:10pm

With 17-month-old Liam Snook accidentally locked inside a hot car, vomiting and starting to pass out, it fell on two Missouri Western State D-backs who were just passing by to rescue the kid.

If This Doesn't Warm Your Heart, You're Awful

We've learned a lot about fan psychology when it comes to foul balls. We've seen adults snatch them away from children; we've seen kids sulk until they're rewarded; we've seen grown men devote their sad lives to catching baseballs. There's something about that little sphere made of cork, yarn and leather that makes… » 7/21/11 11:55am 7/21/11 11:55am

These Newborns Have Been Bruins Fans For About As Long As Most Adult Bostonians

We kid, we kid. Obviously there are no parallels to be drawn between the litter at this area hospital, brainwashed from their first days to support the local hockey club, and grown Bruins fans, who made the informed choice themselves, all coincidentally around the spring of 2008. » 6/14/11 6:15pm 6/14/11 6:15pm
