    HOCKEY FANS, WITH AN NHL TEAM, WILL HAVE THEIR OWN HOCKEY SUPERHERO!

    The National Hockey League is teaming up with Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Men and other iconic comic book heroes, to create a new series of superheroes representing each of the 30 league cities and incorporating hockey elements as a way to market the sport.

    They will create 30 "Guardian" superheroes. Starting in January, the new heroes will be used on the Internet, mobile phones, novels and comic books, gaming, in arenas, broadcast, merchandise, and promotional and sponsorship materials.

    Each "Guardian" comes complete with special powers representative of each team and city-- but the heroes are not set in the world of hockey. They will be introduced during the 2011 NHL All-Star Game on January 30 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    The idea is to appeal to boys ages nine to 14.

  • SHES Queen kicker!

    SHE'S HOMECOMING QUEEN AND STAR KICKER, ON THE SAME NIGHT

    An Ohio high school senior had a one of a kind homecoming when she kicked 3 extra points during the school's football game and then was named homecoming queen the same night.

    A few weeks ago she tried out for the football team and beat out the current kicker they had in place.

    She says she isn't content to settle for only kicking extra points. In fact she's connected on practice field goals from as far as 43 yards, and she's made it clear she eventually wants a shot at kicking off, too.

    Moss and Pats QB Coach Got into fight During Last Game

    Randy Moss and New England Patriots quarterback coach Bill O'Brien got into a heated argument during halftime of the Pats win against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. 

    The two got into it in the locker room after the Pats were down 7-6 at the half and Moss only had one pass thrown at him. 

    Moss wasn’t thrown to in the second half and finished the game without a catch.  He was traded to Minnesota two day later.

  • Is that a P$#@s on your nose?

    IF YOU EVER PLAN ON RUNNING FOR CONGRESS, YOU MAY WANT TO KEEP YOUR SUGGESTIVE PHOTOS OFF THE WEB

    Somebody leaked suggestive photos of a Virginia woman running for congress posing suggestively with sex toys.

    Krystal Ball is a 29 year-old first time candidate. She has the Democratic nomination in a race against Republican Rob Wittman.

    The photos show her dressed in suggestive costume, leading a man, she says is her ex-husband around the party on a leash. Her ex-husband has a sex toy strapped to his nose.

    She admits it is her in those photos, taken just after she finished college.

    (She says, "I think we all have been to parties in our life. I think we've all had photos taken that we wouldn't want to be in the public eye.")

    She called the party a "gag" not a revelation into who she really is.

    And she is "angry at the way women in this country are unfairly treated in this regard when they step up and run for office."

    Woman like Sarah Palin and Delaware's Christine O'Donnell. People she doesn't agree with, but she still feels were unfairly targeted.

    Madison fines 3 University of Wisconsin students $86,000 for party

    Students could also face university discipline

    Published : Wednesday, 06 Oct 2010, 7:23 AM CDT

    MADISON (AP) - The city of Madison is fining three University of Wisconsin-Madison students more than $86,000 for a house party.

    Twenty-one-year-old Travis Ludy, 20-year-old Mitchell Klatt and 20-year-old Kevin Tracy face 130 citations for things like dispensing alcohol without a permit, procuring alcohol for an underage person and adult encouraging underage alcohol consumption. The students also could face university discipline.

    Madison police say the men could have faced a smaller fine if they hadn't locked doors and turned off the music and lights when officers arrived Sept. 11.

    Ludy says they hope to get the fines reduced, because none of them can afford it.

  • Blind man 300 game?

    Posted by David Burns

    (WOW!)...BLIND MAN BOWLED A PERFECT GAME!

    A man (Ron Gooch) from  Morris, Illinois recently bowled a perfect game-- and the 52 year old is legally blind!

    He has been blind since childhood. He spent decades fine-tuning his skills as a competitive bowler. A few weeks ago, he rolled 12 strikes in a row.

    Only 10 other legally blind bowlers have been known to have rolled a perfect game in the US.

    (The man was born with nystagmus, which means his eyes move involuntarily. That left him with such blurred vision that he is legally blind.)

    He's not completely blind. What a person with standard vision can see from 200 feet away, he can see from about 20 feet away.

    He said that trying to see down a 60-foot bowling lane "is like trying to look into a flashlight."

    LOOK, MA!....A 300-MILE HARLEY RIDE.... WITH NO HANDS


    A man plans to ride his Harley-Davidson about 300 miles from Michigan to the Ohio border without using his hands to steer.

    He plans to raise money for Parkinson's disease research.

    The ride is in memory of his father, who died in 2008. He wants to raise $3,000 with the ride for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

    The 61-year-old has been riding motor bikes and motorcycles almost 50 years, and said he'll steer with his legs and by leaning. An extra gas tank has been added to the back of his motorcycle so he can go nonstop.
