Fans at a minor league baseball game in Florida saw the rarest of ejections Wednesday: the home team’s DJ got tossed for playing “Three Blind Mice”!
In Daytona’s contest against Fort Myers on August 1, the home plate umpire whipped around and abruptly angrily ejected the “music guy” on the spot.
The ejection was captured on video, too. Watch it below:
The DJ, Derek Dye, was guilty of playing a non-lyrical rendition of “Three Blind Mice.” The umpire demanded no music or PA announcements from then on.
As the announcers reveled in theMore >

Original post: THG Caption Contest: London Olympics Style!
A London native on vacation in France and apparently overcome with Olympic mania had to be rescued after attempting to swim to the U.S.
The unnamed 34-year-old told friends on the beach at Biarritz that he was off to New York to “carry the Olympic spirit across the Atlantic.”
That’s almost 3,600 miles. He probably made it at least 1-2.
His friends thought he was joking, but knowing that he was a strong swimmer, decided to let him go, figuring he’d turn around or be rescued if needed.
The man swam beyond buoys 300 yards out to sea, past the legal limits for bathing, then continued swimmingMore >
NFL star Tim Tebow can be seen running shirtless, in the rain, and in slow motion no less, in this new video taken at the end of a recent team practice.
You are welcome, ladies. You are so very welcome.
The New York Jets backup removed his jersey during a heavy downpour, leading to razzing from his teammates and leaving plenty of tongues wagging.
Watch. Enjoy. Then watch again if you like. It’s okay.
“You have to give him a hard time,” linebacker Bryan Thomas joked to ESPN. “Man, that’s not Christian-like,” Bart Scott added. “Maybe it was holy water?”

Defense lawyers in Jerry Sandusky‘s child sex abuse trial, set to begin this week, asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for a delay in the proceedings.
A lower court rejected the request late last week.
Jury selection is scheduled for Tuesday in the trial of Sandusky, 68, who was arrested in November and faces 52 criminal counts for the alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years.
He denies all of the allegations, which tarnished Penn State University and brought down the legendary Joe Paterno, who passed away last winter.
The defense team had said it wanted more time to review material fromMore >
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back and the Guidice-Gorga feud continues. Let’s rehash it all with our +/- review of all things Housewives!
Another Housewife wants to be a singer. It’s a shock, I know. Minus 7 for these shows rehashing the same plots over and over again.
At least Melissa Gorga seems to have a voice but she needs some professional training. And as much as I dislike Joe Gorga, his support of Melissa’s dream was sort of sweet. Although I’m sure having a rockin’ pop star for a wife would certainly stroke his ego. Still, I’ll give him a Plus 2 but it hurts me to doMore >
