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

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

Six-Year-Old Sends Brandon Jacobs $3.36 To Stay With The Giants

Brandon Jacobs is not what you would call a great running back. But that doesn't matter when you're six years old, and you attach yourself to a player for the least rational of reasons.

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.

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
