Pastor Caught Burglarizing Home on Christmas Eve

No this isn’t the most absurd story we’ve heard but the pastor’s excuse/reasoning is priceless.

Never has Serita Agnew’s faith been so shaken. Police told her that the person who stole fur coats and laptop computers from her home was not a random criminal… but her trusted pastor.

The alleged crime took place on Christmas Eve.

“I’m still having a hard time,” Agnew said. “I don’t know what it was about.”

She said her pastor, Sandy McGriff, called her on Christmas Eve, shortly before the break-in. A short time later, police said a neighbor spotted the 52-year-old preacher breaking a window and climbing in. (C+D)

Justin Bieber, Dr. Dre Together at Last

This is awesome…this lil boy is making all the right moves to be one of the most successful people of all time at his age.

Just one short year ago, we’d never heard of inexplicably popular, puberty-dodging, Lego-haired pop homunculus Justin Bieber. A year down the line, the creamy-complexioned irritant still doesn’t have any body hair, but he does have Justbeats Solo: his own signature Monster Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.

The Justbeats Solo headphones are over-ear cans available in white and purple, which is little Jussy’s favorite color. The tortuously named iBeats by Dr. Dre Justbeats Edition are an in-ear version. The headphones come with a voice-activated remote control for hands-free chatting to BFFs when plugged into your iPhone.


Mark Zuckerberg Named Time’s Person of the Year

This shouldn’t be that surprising Mr. Zuckerberg has gotten a lot of press over the past year good and bad (The Social Network) which has helped increase his public profile…

Time magazine has chosen Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old founder of Facebook, as its annual Person of the Year, an annual profile and title given to an individual who has “for better or for worse…done the most to influence the events of the year.”

In a year fraught with political turmoil and sweeping actions on behalf of controversial individuals, Zuckerberg was an unexpected choice. A popular vote among Time readers revealed that their pick was Julian Assange, the controversial founder of WikiLeaks. National politicians, international threats, and the leaders of controversial political movements were also up for consideration.

But it’s Zuckerberg who received 2010′s recognition, in a testament to the rising power of a new generation of Silicon Valley innovation and how much the ways in which we communicate have been dramatically changed by the Web and digital media.

Favre Won’t Play Again…

…unless the feeling in his hand comes back? Seriously? Can anyone say time to retire? I knew after watching him as a Jet that his days were numbered…but when does owning every QB record of all time get old?

After 297 consecutive starts over 19 seasons, one of the greatest individual streaks in all of sports, Brett Favre ran into an injury he couldn't beat and sat down.

The 41-year-old Vikings quarterback, who fought through broken bones, aches, pains and personal grief to play week after week, couldn't make it for the Minnesota Vikings in their 21-3 loss to the New York Giants on Monday night. Favre was sidelined by a throwing shoulder too damaged for even him to overcome.

"Seems like I been hurt a lot worse," Favre said after the game. "I can't believe something like this hasn't happened before."

Let's clear one thing up right now: The real number is 321. Not 297. If you're talking about a starting streak, where every game matters equally in the making of such a record, you count every game. Regular season and playoffs.
