    Posted by Average Joe

    Nike has yanked T-shirts that said "Boston Massacre" in the aftermath of last week's bombings.

    The shirts, which featured blood-splattered lettering, were designed for New York Yankees fans.

    The "Boston Massacre" phrase has been used to describe a late-season sweep of the Red Sox back in 1978. The Yankees ended up winning the World Series that year.

    Nike says its "confident the product has been removed from distribution."

  • Women Want You To Spend THIS Much On A Ring!

    Posted by Average Joe

    Research has found that a third of modern brides-to-be are pitching in and helping their partner pay for the cost of her ring in order to get the one that they want.

    One in five say they have downsized the wedding itself in order to up the price on their ring.

    While women polled thought an average $2,600 was what men should pay for their ring - men actually guessed a bit higher at $3,000.

    Women also said the more money a man earns the more she expects him to spend on the ring.

    (TMZ) Reese Witherspoon pulled her celebrity card out while her husband was getting arrested for DUI, telling the officer who ended up busted her, "You're about to find out who I am."

    The arrests went down in Atlanta early Friday morning. Cops say they spotted Reese and her husband Jim Toth's car -- a silver Ford Fusion -- weaving in and out of lanes, so they pulled them over. 

    As officers dealt with Jim, Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, "Do you know my name?" The officer answered by saying, "No, I don't need to know your name."

    Witherspoon then came back with, "You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news."

    During Jim's arrest, Reese allegedly became ornery, demonstrating visual and verbal frustration over how long it was taking to arrest her husband. At one point, she got out of her car and the officer ordered her back inside. When she got out a second time, he arrested her for disorderly conduct, a municipal ordinance.

    They were both taken to jail, booked, and released a short time later. 

    As for Toth's part of the arrest ... the officer in the report described him by saying his "eye lids were droopy" and his eyes were "blood shot and watery." The officer said he smelled a "strong odor" of alcohol coming from Toth.

    The officer stated that Toth told him he only had one drink ... but when given a Breathalyzer test, Toth's blood alcohol level was .139.

    In Reese's defense maybe she played the celeb card because she had as much to drink as her hubby. Just sayin' ...

  • Some Married People Wouldn't Even Do This...

    Posted by Average Joe

    An increasing number of couples are going so far as to join their Facebook and Twitter accounts together.

    Rather than being a sign that these couples are too co-dependent, some suggest it's the modern-day version of opening a shared a bank account.

    According to one psychotherapist, couples who join social media accounts have a strong identity around who they belong to and who belongs to them.

    He explained, "Obviously Facebook has tapped into a massive amount of interest in people wanting to present themselves as individuals."

    He added, "But some people may wish to portray an image of themselves as the couple - they may feel more comfortable with their joint identity."

    He also noted that, "Some individuals may use it more separately because they feel more comfortable having their identity in their separate self rather than their couple self."

  • Are You Ready For The "Breastaurant"?

    Posted by Average Joe

    A Texas-based sports bar has trademarked the name "breastaurant".

    Hooters didn't buy the name, so Bikinis Sports Bar and Grill in Houston is America's only "breastaurant".

    That could be bad news for Hooters, Tilted Kilt, and other places that feature scantily clad waitresses.

    Hooters is in danger of losing its top spot, but they don't seem too concerned that they can't legally call themselves a "breastaurant". They claim it's a "moniker that's too shallow to define Hooters."

    Posted by Average Joe

    A 79-year-old woman spent five years in a vegetative state. She miraculously came out of her coma and the first thing she said was that she wanted to see a Bob Seger concert. Her wish is finally coming true.

    The woman's first words after waking from the coma were: "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert."

    She had been in the five-year semi coma after falling and hitting her head on the floor. For two years, she waited for a Bob Seger concert. That time has finally come and she is ready with her concert tickets and an invitation for an after party at the Palace in Auburn Hills, Michigan tomorrow night.

    The dinner after the concert will include the band members, crew, management and their families. No word on if Seger himself will attend.
