Keep Your Eye on the... Wait... What?

This video is going viral.

The Milford Mighty Mites (that's Milford, Masachusetts) are a Pee Wee Football team.

Over the weekend, they took the field at halftime during a varsity football game for a scrimmage.

Good chance for the little guys to be seen on a bigger stage, right?

But the field's PA system kept playing music while the kids played, and some of there were overtaken by it when "Whip Nae Nae" started playing.

It's hilarious. Half of the kids look like they're in a dance-off, while the other half are there for some football.

I think dance football has some potential...

Glass Walkway 3500 Feet Up Shatters - But It's Okay!

Not even a month ago, a glass-bottomed walkway opened to the public at Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Henan Province, China.

It's 3540 feet up, and wraps around an outcropping of rock in a U shape.

On Monday, a tourist dropped a stainless-steel coffee mug on the walkway, and the glass shattered, "causing the tourists on it to understandably freak out," according to one source.

You think?

There are three panels of glass, and only one cracked, so the engineers claim no one was in danger.

Uh huh. Know what? Just watching the video makes me squeamish.

Being on it and hearing it crack - safe or not - I'm getting off and never getting back on...

"No Matter Where I Go, Dad Will Always Be With Me"

Bindi Irwin is really lighting things up on Dancing with the Stars.

This week, she dedicated her routine to her late dad, Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter.

And it's an amazing dance. Very touching, very moving. 

And right now, she's the odds-on favorite to win the entire season...

Leno Moves in on The Tonight Show Again!

The other night on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon pulled a hamstring during the opening monologue.

It was so bad, he couldn't continue.

Luckily, former Tonight Show host Jay Leno was waiting in the wings, and stepped in to take over.

He looked right at home, and his jokes were pretty darn good.

If You're Reading This, He Was Wrong... Again

A preacher in Pennsylvania predicted in July that yesterday, October 7, 2015, would be the end of the world.

Pretty definitive and bold statement. Especially when you consider he used the world "annihilate."

If you're just reading about this for the first time, oops.

Looks like the preacher had it wrong.


A few years ago, he predicted the end of the Earth on May 21, 2011.

That didn't happen either. Ask anyone.

Even the video he posted back in July doesn't believe what he believes. At the end, it's telling people to like his Facebook page - and nowhere does it say "temporarily."

The End is Near

The official trailer for Mockingjay 2, the final episode in the Hunger Games saga, has been released.

The movie comes out just before Thanksgiving.

If you saw Mockingjay 1, maybe you were as disappointed as me.

Just when it got to the part where it was getting really interesting, it stopped.

The only thing missing was the "... to be continued" graphic over the final scene.

Which may have been there, I don't really remember any more.
Mockingjay Part 2 Official Trailer – “Welcome To The 76th Hunger Games”

Nothing can prepare you for the end. Watch the NEW FINAL trailer for The Hunger Games: #MockingjayPart2, in theaters November 20. Get your #MockingjayTickets now at http://hungrgam.es/mockingjaytix

"Did Anybody Catch That Play?"

Every once in a while, a commercial comes along that captures a moment in time.

This new State Farm commercial - showing some football referees who didn't see a play but have to make a call anyway - hits home, especially given the controversy over the non-call that happened in Monday night's game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit Lions.

To set it up: The Lions were running the ball in for a touchdown that would have put them ahead of the Seahawks. The ball carrier had the ball stripped just shy of the end zone. It bounced into the end zone, and Seahawks player batted it out of the field of play.

That's a penalty, and it should have given the Lions the ball back at the one-yard line. Just about every one agrees, from the NFL vice-president in charge of officiating to the Seahawks' coach, Pete Carroll. So the Lions had one snatched away from them by some referees.

Now watch the commercial, which you can bet aired during Monday night's game.
