Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.
Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.
Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.
Statistically, that’s dead even.
Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.
A lot of fans of Friends have been pining for a reunion show.
This week, Jimmy Kimmel made that wish come true – well, halfway anyway.
A huge fan of the show, Jimmy wrote some fan fiction, casting himself as Ross, and somehow convincing Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to perform it with him on an exact replica of the kitchen set.
It’s fun to see the ladies together – too bad the skit wasn’t a bit funnier…
Social media is exploding this morning with the Brangelina story.
Just about everyone is reporting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were secretly married in France over the weekend. This is not to be confused with the secret wedding they supposedly had last Christmas.
This weekend's news came from a spokesman for the couple, according to most sources.
So, maybe they're married.
Maybe they're not.
And maybe, just maybe, we really don't care anymore...
Have you heard about the Lingerie Football League? Women put on shoulder pads, helmets and not much more and play football.
Yeah, it’s like that.
When the final whistle blew in the LFL’s Eastern Conference Championship game between the Atlanta Steam and the Jacksonville Breeze, Atlanta came out on top, 20-12, and headed for the league finals.
But as the teams lined up for the obligatory post-game handshakes, things got a little out of hand.
A Breeze player called a Steam player a punk-butt female dog – well, her actual words were a little more harsh than that, but it’s certainly something you could hear on network TV after 10PM.
But, that was enough for both benches to clear and for everyone to start hurling insults and punches and more. There’s video of the altercation attached to this story in The New York Daily News – click on it, but be warned, it’s not at all safe for work.
For the finals, the league owners are thinking about filling the stadium with Jello or mud and just let the girls fight one another instead of playing football. That ought to help attendance.
