Remember the basketball Dream Team from the 1992 Olympics? Michael Jordan, Pippen, Stockton and Malone, Magic, Bird, Ewing...this was a team for the ages. And the names just rolled off the tongue; unlike Nnamdi Asomugha which I still don't know how to pronounce. Vick is a little easier to say, but man he was hard to watch yesterday. Although he threw for 300 yards and became the all-time leading rusher for a Quarterback in the NFL, he threw for four interceptions, wasted a lot of time at the end of the first half, and took his team down. The Dream Team. I think Reid looks like he can still ball. So far the Eagles buying a championship hasn't worked out... Read More
Have you seen this man? Because if you have, you know one of the smartest criminals ever. ( I wish they made a font called "Sarcastic") Dude apparently broke into someone's car and stole their cell phone. For some reason he wanted to take that awesome picture of himself, and because of her settings it updated directly to her Facebook. Amazing! So if you're a Bro Council reader in Atlanta, keep an eye out for this crafty thief. Hide your phone, or at the very least set your GPS and photos to automatically upload and watch the fun happen.

So you say your bridge is missing...say what? Someone stole a bridge??? In Lawrence County Pennsylvania someone took apart a 50 foot long bridge worth around $100,000 with a blow torch. A blow torch?? This must be the greatest criminal mastermind after DB Cooper. The bridge went all Keyser Söze, except instead of convincing the world he did exist...it really doesn't.

There is gang warfare in Amish country? Apparently. Ohio police are investigating a series of attacks on different factions of the Amish there - apparently they're shaving off each others beards and hair. Beards are a huge part of the Amish's beliefs, and different "factions" of the Amish have been forming large groups who then go into other factions houses and take the Amish residents out to the streets where they are attacked with scissors. The Sheriff, Fred Abdalla, said at least one of the attacks was planned by Sam Mullet (yes, Mullet) who is a bishop of the Bergholz congregation. He also believes that hair from the victims was brought back to Mullet to prove... Read More

See that picture there? It was taken right before the collision at home plate from a long throw from the outfield. It was Game 4 of the American League Division Series, and one of the most exciting plays in baseball was about to happen. Mike Napoli of the Rangers gets the ball, goes for the tag, Sean Rodriguez of the Rays hits him at the plate, and Napoli swallows his chewing tobacco. Sick. I'm surprised he didn't hurl on Rodriguez. After the hit, Napoli said "Geez, I had a wad of chew, where is it?" After his coach told him he swallowed it, Napoli responded with "I'm all right skip, let's go." Apparently Rodriguez hit him in the the throat on... Read More
