I want to open this story with a quote from the man himself, 47-year-old John Morillo of Windsor, Ontario, "If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything. I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say ‘ha, ha, you didn’t make it.’ Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it."

An Indian news anchor for The News Express made the unfortunate decision to broadcast his coverage of the major flooding in India from the shoulders of a flood victim. One would think that the reporter would realize his mistake and apologize for it. Oh, no. Not Narayan Pargiaen!
On June 17th the Tigers will receive their 11th Sports Illustrated cover. Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera will grace the cover of the legendary sporting magazine. The duo are featured as the "Bash Bros - The swing-from-the-heels power and awesomeness of Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder - Baseball's 21st-century version of Mantle and Maris." Those are some pretty big words guys... Better not let us down this season!
Michigan's gas prices are among the highest in the nation peaking at $4.70 in Clinton Township.

Almost everyone who has played in little league baseball or has had a kid who has played can relate to this... The angry little league parents. These parents can either be yelling at their own kid or yelling at his or her opponents. They take the game way to seriously. Sure it's a competitive game and everyone should be trying their hardest to win, but do you really need to yell "You can strike out this kid, Jim! He sucks! He hasn't hit a ball all day!"
Eating a chicken wing seems simple enough, right? Grab the chicken wing, bite the chicken wing, tear the flesh and meat from the bone, chew it, swallow, repeat... Wrong! Sure, maybe that's how you eat a drumstick, but if you eat the wing like that... You, sir, are a savage! Or just hungry. Whatever's clever.
