Two baseball players from Western High School in Fort Worth Texas were dismissed from the team for sacrificing chickens in an attempt to improve their play. From what I understand, neither player is related to Pedro Cerrano from Major League.
Fort Worth Independent School District spokesman Clint Bond said the incident happened during Spring Break. Bond did not know how many chickens allegedly were killed. He declined to say how the two students were punished.
Baseball coach Bobby McIntire said he has not had a chance to talk to the students about why they did it.
Well it was only a matter of time... 26-ish years... when someone re-made... or re-imagined... Teen Wolf... not much imagination if you're re-making something that's been done before but I digress... Looks to me MTV is taking the "Twilight" meets "Cursed" route on this one - not the lighthearted romp one would expect with Michael J. Fox or his cousin Jason Bateman (Teen Wolf 2) as source material - but who am I to judge? It's from the same outlet that produces "Jersey Shore" so I guess we should thank our full moons that Teen Wolf isn't an over-tan, too-drunk and extremely-stupid moron living in a beach house with others of his pack.

A team of seven IT coworkers won the New York State Mega Millions jackpot totally $319 million. Awesome for them. But the depressing part? There were usually eight coworkers who pooled money together for lottery tickets. And one opted to sit this one out.
According to a New York Post interview with the owner of the Albany deli who sold the winning lottery ticket, when the coworkers went around the office went around asking who wanted into the pool, the unlucky eighth man (whose identity is unknown) told them he was going to pass this time around since he “wasn’t feeling lucky.”

Concessionaire Aramark signed a deal to bring a pair of “Bottoms Up” beer dispensers to Boston by Opening Day. The aptly named system fills a special cup from the bottom up in just a few seconds, vastly outpouring typical tap setups and keeping those aggravating alcohol lines moving.
“It’s another reason for fans to get excited,” said Aramark spokesman David Freireich. “We think people will be lining up and stopping by even if they aren’t planning on buying a beer, just to see how it works.”
Bottoms Up works its magic thanks to a thin magnetic disk in the cup bottom that flips up when the cup is placed on the system and beer flows in, and then flips back down and seals when the pour is finished. A four-cup Bottoms Up station can pour as many as 44 beers per minute.

Odd that the Tony's wouldn't have had a rehearsal for the segment (pssssttttt.... they did and Bret was a part of it) ...
Odd that the rest of the band hit their mark thus not having a piece of scenery drop on their faces.... Odd (or not so much) Bret stroked his ego by giving one last "play to the crowd" and missed his mark because of it... Odd that the stupid cowboy hat you wear to hide your baldness occluded your vision so you couldn't see the set piece dropping down (on time).
