In one of baseball’s most bizarre calls, the umpire ejected the guy playing the organ music.
Derek Dye, an intern with the minor-league Daytona, Fla., Cubs, who was in charge of selecting the recordings, disagreed with a call.
So Dye thought he’d have some fun — and played “Three Blind Mice.’’
“And then . . . the home-plate umpire looks up and yells as loud as he can, ‘You’re gone!’ ’’ Dye said. “I couldn’t believe he was talking to me. Not the manager, the guy arguing the call. The guy pressing the button on the music.’’
He almost was right.
College student Chance Booth was texting as he drove along a road in Huntsville, Ala., when he sent this message: “I need to quit texting because I could die in a car accident.’’
Seconds later, his truck plunged off a bridge, but he survived his injuries.
If the United States is hit by a missile, the blame might fall on horny Pentagon workers.
The executive director of the Missile Defense Agency sent a memo stating: “There have been instances of employees and contractors accessing Web sites, or transmitting messages, containing pornographic or sexually explicit messages,’’ Bloomberg News reported.
It’s not news when tourists from cold climates vacation in Hawaii, but this one made history.
He’s a northern fur seal, the first ever known to visit Aloha-land. He was spotted hanging out on an Oahu beach.
O say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave — over the moon?
For years scientists wondered what happened to the six flags planted there on the Apollo missions.
New cameras orbiting the moon show five are still flying. The sixth is believed to have been blown over by the rocket blast when the astronauts took off for home.
