Feel like shedding a few tears?

Read this story. It's moving.

91-year-old who inspired thousands by skipping chemotherapy to go on end of life road trip dies

'Over these past 12 months, all of us have learned so much about living, caring, loving and embracing the present moment'

An American woman who decided to take a road trip across the United States instead of undergoing cancer treatment has died at the age of 91.

Norma Jean Bauerschmidt’s travels have been followed by more than 400,000 people on the Facebook page "Driving Miss Norma", which posted pictures and accounts of her journey.

Ms Bauerschmidt's daughter-in-law Ramie, who set up the Facebook page, wrote that Ms Bauerschmidt had decided to take the trip last year after being diagnosed with uterine cancer and told by her doctor that surgery, radiation and chemotherapy were unlikely to treat the illness

"We found ourselves sitting in an OB/GYN office talking about treatment options," a post read. "You know the drill: surgery, then radiation and chemo in some order. When the doctor was finished he asked her how she would like to proceed. "A tiny woman at 101 pounds and under five-feet tall, an exhausted Norma looked the young doctor dead in the eye and with the strongest voice she could muster, said, 'I’m 90-years-old, I’m hitting the road.'"


U.S. puttin' a whuppin' on Puerto Rico

Stroman with a no-no into the 7th. It's 7-0. Never would have expected it to be this easy for Team USA. I figured Puerto Rico had a really good shot to win.

How many inches are you expecting? (Graphic image)

I realize that thread title has gotten a lot of mileage. But this isn't snow related.

This pertains to the 11 inches that this matador took up his butt, from a bull's horn. It really is a terrible sport. Hopefully this fellow's story persuades his counterparts to give up the pursuit.

Shocking footage has emerged showing a matador being gored by a bull — and ending up with its horn up his backside.

Antonio Romero was horrifically gored during a bout with the furious beast in Mexico City on Monday.

The matador ended up with the bull’s horn some 11 inches up his rectum, causing “severe” injuries.

The stomach-churning clip shows Romero seemingly in control as he goads the animal with a red cloth, called a muleta. But something goes wrong as he tries to get the bull to pivot around him. The angry beast rears up, catching him on the arm and knocking him off balance...


A joke that has to be shared

Spotted on a friend's Facebook page:

A lonely 70-year-old widow decided that it was time to marry again. She put an ad in the local newspaper that read: "Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants please apply in person."

The following day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a gray-haired gentleman sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs.

"You're not really asking me to consider you, are you?" the widow asked: "Just look at you -- you have no legs!"

The old gent smiled: "Therefore, I cannot run around on you!"

"You don't have any arms either!" she snorted.

Again, the old man smiled: "Therefore, I can never beat you!"

She raised an eyebrow and asked intently: "Are you still good in bed?"

The old man leaned back, beamed a big smile and said: "I rang the doorbell, didn't I?"

Oddball buddies

This is a great little vid. It's actually a commercial, which you don't find out unless you read the title underneath (or get to the end). Even though it's technically marketing, it's touching.

Tim Tebow assigned by Mets to Class A ball

Makes sense. He might have a degree of success at that level and he will be a draw based on his name recognition.

Tim Tebow will begin his professional baseball journey in 2017 with the New York Mets' Class A team in Columbia, South Carolina.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner was told Monday that he will be assigned to the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets' affiliate in the South Atlantic League.

"Sending him to a full-season club is what we hoped to be able to do," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told Newsday. "And based on what he's done in spring training, and his whole body of work since last fall, we feel comfortable with him going to Columbia."

Tebow is hitting .235 (4-for-17) in six games for the Mets in spring training, entering Monday's Grapefruit League play. The Mets have been playing him in the outfield.


Congratulations, Randy!

I prefer The Onion, but the Canadian satirical site The Beaverton does come up with some amusing stuff at times. Like this:

LOL! Daily Show's commercial for McDonalds/Trump is spectacular
