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...

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.

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.

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...

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."

"This Time, It's Really, Really Personal"

In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly traveled to the future.

And while he was there, he passed a cinema that was advertising Jaws 19.

Funny idea, and an homage to Steven Spielberg, I guess.

Now that Back to the Future II is marking its 30th anniversary - which hardly seems possible - someone put together a promo for Jaws 19.

And it's hilarious.

Check it out...

How's This For a Guard Dog?

Check out this terrific surveillance video from a house in Monrovia, California.

A 20-pound French bulldog managed to chase two decent-sized bears off his owner's property.

Either bear probably could have had the dog for dinner, but the dog had other plans.

You know what they say: it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

CNN and Anderson Cooper have a special running about the impact of social media on today's teenagers called #BeingThirteen.

As part of the build-up around the show, celebrities were asked to post picture of themselves at the age of 13, and to describe how it felt.

And some of the pictures... Well, check out a few for yourself.

Or visit Twitter and use #Being13 to see the whole collection.

Former Miss USA, Olivia Culpo:

Oh my gosh. So here it is #Being13-- chubby cheeks, brow game STRONG, awkward smile, are my eyes open?whats with the headband string??? -- ah #being13. Not really sure who you are or what the world is all about. I really feel for the younger generation and the tremendous amount of pressure young girls feel today to appear "perfect," basically holding an unrealistic expectation of face, body, social life etc. Everyone, no matter who you are, will never measure up to "perfect" because it doesn't exist. And however close you come to this "perfect" mold should not define how you feel about yourself or what you think others perceive you as. Photoshop, Instagram "highlight reels," and that 1/1000 perfect selfie have altered reality and created an unreachable standard. I think at the end of the day, no matter who you are, everyone struggles with insecurities and we're all in this together as women battling a time that is very much influenced by social media and these socially glorified images that set a standard of perfection. I'm not saying it's bad to post a picture that you think you look good in or take a selfie. I just wish young girls didn't feel sick over comparison and inevitably failing to measure up. So if you're 13 years old and awkward, be 13 and awkward! Same with 14 and 15 and every age. As cliche as it sounds- love the skin you're in. And love one another because we're all going through the same thing.

And even Anderson Cooper:

And This Guy Wants to Be President?

Sitting down for an interview recently with SHOWstudio - I have no idea what that is - Kanye West had a lot to say about Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

He referred to the reality TV show as "an art form."

And he believes the show should be winning all sorts of awards. "... my wife and my family should've had plenty of Emmys by now."

Here's a little award-winning art for you to savor while you munch on Kanye's thoughts.

"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.
