No Matter What Your Tickets Cost, This Was Worth Every Penny

Fans of U2 got a major treat on Friday night when the band appeared at Madison Square Garden.

Bruce Springsteen, the king of New Jersey, was at the concert, and joined U2 on stage for a song or two.

It turned into a singalong for the entire venue as everyone joined in on "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and then "Stand By Me."

What a night. These fans will have a story to share for a long time.

This Safe Slide is Sick

When I say the slide you're about to see is sick, that means it's good.

Yeah, I don't understand that either, but that's got nothing to do with it.

Over the weekend, Kendrys Morales of the Kansas City Royals made the most brilliant move at home plate and/or was the luckiest guy in Missouri - your pick.

Morales is the DH for KC - not known for his speed. He's on second base when his teammate hits a single, and he's off to the races.

The throw from the outfield was dead-on, and Morales should have been out.

The catcher grabbed the ball - perfect throw, perfect catch - and went for a sweep tag of Morales foot. But Morales pulled up short, the tag missed, the momentum took the catcher's glove out of the base path, and Morales just stepped around him to score.

Incredible. Especially when you consider that Morales once broke his ankle jumping on home plate to celebrate a grand slam.

Watch the Vine...

Cecil Speaks From Beyond

There's been a major uproar over the so-called sport killing of Zimbabwe's beloved Cecil the Lion by a dentist from Minnesota.

There are calls for the dentist to be brought back to Africa to face charges. The dentist has been forced to shut down his dental practice. And a huge debate about hunting has sprung up worldwide.

And now, this.

An animal psychic claims that Cecil responded to her when she reached out to him. His words, she said, moved her to tears.

The words of a large cat who apparently learned to speak - and quite eloquently - in his transition to the afterlife...

Hey, it happened in Lion King, right? So why not here?

If She Could Have Another Job, the First Lady Would Be...

First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for a series of interview questions over the weekend with a rapper named Wale.

I'm sorry, I don't know him, so here's his Wikipedia page...

Anyway, he sat with the president's wife and asked some questions written on index cards.

FLOTUS was very personable, and dare I say, radiant?

The best answer came to this question: "If you had the opportunity to have another occupation, what would it be?"

I won't spoil it for you. Watch it for yourself...
 
 

You asked. The First Lady and @Wale answered. #ReachHigher

"It's All Over... Just... Like... That!"

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey could well be the toughest person on the planet.

Saturday night in Rio De Janeiro, she took on hometown favorite Bethe Correia in a championship fight

There'd been a lot of trash-talking prior to the event, mostly on the part of the challenger.

I guess when you're fighting on home turf, a bit of swagger is expected, right?

That didn't sit well with Ronda, so she made fast work of her opponent.

The highlight reel is about 18 seconds.

That's all you get when the fight lasts just 35 seconds.

Jon Stewart's Secret Meetings with Barack Obama

Can it be true?

Jon Stewart, who departs this week as host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, was taken to task last week by a variety of news outlets who reported two secret meetings between the talk show icon and the President of the United States.

Why? Because the president needed Jon's support in promoting his social and political agenda.

Right. Yeah, that happened.

Jon had a lot of fun tearing the story to pieces.

Fun Fun Fun with the Beach Boys

Jimmy Fallon and the gang at The Tonight Show are big fans of music history.

So it's no surprise that they'd be able to get their hands on some vintage recordings of the first draft of The Beach Boys' big hit, "Fun Fun Fun."

Okay, so in truth, it was Jimmy and Kevin Bacon having a little fun with the way the song might have come together.

Let's just say, things got stuck at the hamburger stand...

Check it out - it's very funny, and very well done too.

First Drafts of Rock: "Fun, Fun, Fun" by The Beach Boys (w/Kev...

Watermelon Salad

So much watermelon, so little time...here's a fresh idea for you!

8 cups cubed seedless watermelon (about 1 medium watermelon)
1 small red onion, cut into thin rings
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts or slivered almonds, toasted*
1 cup fresh arugula and/or baby spinach
1/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette
3 tbsp canola oil
1 cup (4 oz) crumbled blue cheese

In a large bowl, combine watermelon and onion; cover and refrigerate until cold (about 30 minutes).  Just before serving add nuts and arugula/baby spinach to the mixture.  In a small bowl, whisk vinaigrette and oil; drizzle over salad and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with blue cheese.
*to toast nuts, spread on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

Keep Your Enemies Close

There's a lot of buzz about Johnny Depp's upcoming film, Black Mass, and there's a new trailer out for it.

He's playing Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters of our time, a kingpin in the Boston crime scene before becoming a fugitive for years.

Johnny's performance looks pretty intense, and he's surrounded by a pretty amazing supporting cast, not the least of whom are Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon.

Check it out.

This Time, Kate Winslet's the Queen of the World

Kate Winslet, the actress who rocketed to fame as Rose in Titanic, taped an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls recently.

She did some flying, and some climbing, and at one point, recreated a famous scene from the movie.

No, not the charcoal drawing one.

The one where she's at the bow of the boat, telling Jack that she's flying.

She does the same thing in this clip, only this time, she's leaning over a rope or a cable on the side of a mountain...

Prepare for an adventure made for the movies.
