News Story of the Day

This from News of the Weird...

H. Beatty Chadwick, 65, has served more than 6 1/2 years in jail in suburban Philadelphia for contempt of court for not being able to produce $2.5 million that he was supposed to split with his divorced wife. He was scheduled to be released in February, but a federal appeals court blocked that order. (The U.S. record for contempt is believed to be held by a Chicago man who was released in 1997 after staying in jail for 10 years in order not to reveal the whereabouts of his daughter.) Chadwick said he lost the money in a bad investment, but his ex-wife believes that the money was not lost and that Chadwick is willingly sitting in jail in order to protect its now-multiplied value.

Question of the Day

What annually televised sporting event is an absolute must see for you?

I know some of you are just dying to have me say the World Figure Skating Championships but I'm not. I love Wimbledon. There's something so cool about the traditional playing of tennis on grass in all white (or mostly white) outfits. After that, I would have to say the World Series....

Picture of the Day

You know how I loves me rugby players...
