Folks in Durham, North Carolina have reason to celebrate today.
Jabari Parker, considered by many to be the best high school senior in the nation, announced this afternoon that he will attend Duke University in 2013, instantly boosting the Blue Devils’ title chances a year from now.

We need not. But we will anyway.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a joke about his birth certificate – and took a subtle shot at his opponent in doing so – at a rally Friday.
Speaking about his roots in Michigan, where has father was governor, he told a Commerce, Mich., crowd, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.”
“They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
It was awkward, if nothing else, for Romney to joke about “birther” conspiracies that dogged President Barack Obama since his 2008 White House run.

In an ironic twist, Basketball Wives star Kenya Bell is being hit up for money by her former NBA player husband, as she now makes more money than him.
Former Michigan State star Charlie Bell feels he supported Kenya for years with his wages, but says it’s his estranged spouse’s turn to get his back now.
Charlie filed for divorce from Kenya months ago. She’s raking it in on the VH1 show, and while he’s still playing internationally, the money’s not the same.
Despite having over $1 million in the bank, Charlie says Kenya’s the one with the income – from Basketball WivesMore >
If you’re running for national office, lovable Seinfeld loser George Costanza may not be a figure you should readily and enthusiastically equate yourself to.
But Mitt Romney did, and now Jason Alexander is commenting on it.
In his opening remarks at the Arizona Republican debate Wednesday, Romney said, “I want to restore America’s promise, and I’m going to do that.”
Before he could continue, the crowd began applauding, so the candidate quipped, “As George Costanza would say, ‘when they’re applauding, stop.’”
Jason Alexander, who played Costanza on the long-running series, used it as anMore >
As has become our post-debate tradition, here’s a highlight reel of last night’s Republican CNN gathering in Arizona … featuring Ron Paul and only Ron Paul.
He may be marginalized by the mainstream media, but he’s shown no signs of quitting the GOP race, and was dishing it out left and right Wednesday.
Like a boss.
In particular, Paul took it to Rick Santorum so hard over his federal spending record, some are speculating that he made an alliance with Mitt Romney.
It’s probably just that – speculation – but make no mistake, the Texas Congressman was on his game at last night’s RepublicanMore >
Hey, at least he’s practicing safe sex!
At this week’s Hollywood premiere of The Lorax – a children’s film, ironically – Zac Efron reached into his pocket to hand an item to his assistant. But something else accidentally fell out and fell to the ground, in front of countless onlookers: A condom.
Set to appropriate music, watch the hilarious clip now:
The only real question, of course: Who was this condom intended for? Zac’s Valentine’s Day date?
A tiny Michigan puppy was recently rescued from an underground pipe and became a viral video star … just in time to warm hearts this Valentine’s Day!
What’s not to love about a tale of human rescuers and a trapped puppy, bonded by love? Not a lot, people. The story begins in subterranean Detroit.
Five days ago, a four-week-old Puggle / Dauschund mix got trapped in an underground pipe, and was stuck overnight. Workers could hear, but not see it.
The Michigan Humane Society called plumbers who brought cameras to look inside the pipe and a Bobcat excavator was brought in to dig around theMore >

The announcement was made by … the leaked cover below, first posted on TMZ.
A few of the issues arrived early to a gas station in Michigan (why that state got first dibs, who the heck knows) and the pics are already making the online rounds, as these things frequently seem to do. Check out Kate Upton’s SI swimsuit issue cover below:
Sports Illustrated originally planned to announce the 2012 swimsuit edition cover girl and the cover shot at an event tonight … and they still might. But here she is.

A tell-all new book about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims that she had a one-night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice back in 1987.
Is that true? Does it matter? The answer to both is highly debatable. Is this the greatest rumor of all time? To that, we might have to answer yes.
At the time, she was single and working at a TV station as a sports reporter; Rice was a college basketball star visiting Alaska for a tournament.
Glen Rice scored 18,336 points in his career and won a title with the 2000 L.A. Lakers. If he scored with Sarah Palin, however, he wins the title of MostMore >

The “Boy Is Mine” singer met Brown, a former Michigan State standout, last summer when he played her loveMore >
