Unimportant news

So first there was the great unifier who has a wack-job  as a spiritual director and now there is Mrs. gonna-save-all-our-homes-from-foreclosure who has a campaign manager that serves on the board of a corrupt lender

Only in Oregon can a 'husband' be pregnant. Alright, not ONLY in Oregon, but it isn't surprising that it is happening here! My favorite line from the story is "Despite the fact that my belly is growing with a new life inside me, I am stable and confident being the man that I am." Um, sorry but just because you had your boobs lopped off and you took testosterone, you didn't become a don't get pregnant...oh yeah and they don't have a vagina. (WARNING, the link takes you to the story which is in a gay magazine.)

Jeff Gordon has the pole for tomorrow. Hopefully the DuPont Chevrolet team can get their heads out of their butts and get a win. I wonder if he will finally have Tyvek on the bumper?! (Hah, just saw this while editing—NO, this 'pole for tomorrow' link does NOT link back to the gay magazine).

Ohio State is in the NIT tournament, and if they win their next game and Florida wins theirs, there will be a rematch of last year's NCAA Championship game (for this year's NIT champ). 

In case you aren't keeping up with the NCAA tourney, there are no more Big 10 teams (both Wisconsin and Michigan State lost last night, Purdue and Indiana lost earlier) and there are no more catholics (Xavier lost today and earlier losers include Notre Dame, Villanova, Gonzaga, Georgetown, Mount St. Mary's, Marquette, the University of San Diego, St. Mary's College (Gaels), Siena College, and St. Joseph's—little 'c' intentional...I think Saint Christopher has been busy). 
Aside from March Madness, I hate college basketball...I REALLY hate the NBA. 

Keeping with the basketball/Catholic theme, I saw this earlier today on ESPN. I love the uniforms, and the nun bucket brigade...

Is any of this news interesting? Can any of it actually be called news?

4 people are laughing with me:

I loved that video!

The pregnant man story made me chuckle a little. Very goofy.
One, kind of ironic line was..."My body regulated itself after about four months"
I thought "he" was a could the female hormones reasserting themselves be considered "regulated", hmmm?
