Actor Paul Rudd is a big fan of the Kansas City Royals. He spent the latter part of his childhood in Kansas, even studying at the University of Kansas.
So the other night, when the Royals won the American League Championship Series and earned their way into the World Series - on the strength of eigh consecutive playoff wins, no less! - Paul was there.
A local reporter caught up with him afterwards, and for whatever reason, the reporter let Paul ramble on about his activities as a fan this season.
And then, Paul invited the world to party at his mom's house.
Why not? I mean, he's a movie star, he can afford a few kegs, right?
Imagine what he's going to have to do if the Royals win the World Series...
Rumors are flying that Lady Gaga and her Chicago Fire boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, are prepared to tie the knot.
Of course, neither of them is confirming that, so the tabloidetectives are piecing things together.
It started a couple of weeks ago when actress Sophia Bush guested on Chicago Fire and posted a picture to Instagram that shows Taylor wearing a ring – that she says is not a prop for the show.
Then The Daily Star reported that the two of them had a small family ceremony where they pledged their devotion to one another.
And the famous “unnamed sources” say that Gaga and her boy plan to get married next year.
Et voila! Lady Gaga’s engaged!
I'm REALLY excited to be on @nbcchicagofire tonight! Just about as excited as I was to see my buddy #TaylorKinney at our press day yesterday. Bear hugs are the best hugs. #ChicagoFire #ChicagoPD #ThatsHisPersonalRing #NotForTheShow #EveryoneCalmDown #LindsayAndSeverideArentMarried
The video is a little long, but you can skip ahead to about the 3 or 4 minute mark to see the good stuff. This guy is an Alaskan blogger and watch what happens when he discovers what it sounds like to skip a rock across a rozen lake. I'll admit, I didn't know it made this sound, pretty cool stuff.
Halloween is still two weeks ago, and already, the Christmas chant has begun.
Not for a particular toy, not for a visit with Santa.
But for calling December "the Christmas season" instead of "the holiday season."
The residents of Marshield, Massachusetts - just south of Boston, near Plymouth - took up a petition demanding that their school committee reverse a ruling that turned Christmas vacation into a holiday break.
Those who voted for the change said that old name celebrated only one tradition. The new name, they say, promotes inclusion, diversity and tolerance.
At a meeting this week, the head of the school committee said they would listen to residents' concers, but would not engage in any dialogue on the matter.
Because, you know, that might be too democratic, and insulting to other forms of government.
