    Sharon sent me a message this afternoon about the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter today: “No God.” From the Examiner:

    A war has been waged on Twitter, and it’s about God. According to Twitter’s trending topic note, user RevRunWisdon tweeted, “Know God… Know Peace. No God.. No... read on

  • Maccabi Tel Aviv coach refuses to leave after getting second technical

    This game between Maccabi Tel Aviv and the New York Knicks was a benefit for Migdal Ohr, the largest orphanage in the world. But it looks like Maccabi Coach Pini Gershon was the one who needed some charity. He got tossed in the third quarter for getting his second technical but refused to leave. The refs needed to get the rabbi who spoke at halftime to push Gershon off the court and the tunnel.

    I think Maccabi is playing the Clippers at Staples Center tonight. I hope it’s as entertaining.

    It can be done. It’s happened before. As implausible as it may seem that the Dodgers might climb out of this 3-1 National League Championship Series... read on

  • Yankees cut ties with singer for anti-Semitic joke

    The Yankees have cut ties with singer Ronan Tynan, who for years has sung “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch of post season Yankee games, for making an anti-Semitic remark. He says it was a joke, but apologized nonetheless. The Yankees don’t seem to care.

    Fear not. I’m not going to malign the hallowed name of Jerry Seinfeld, even though his comedic touch has slipped in old age. I was just looking for a good excuse to use the above clip from “The Puffy Shirt.”

    The hook? An Oct. 12 gaffe from Los Angeles’ legal newspaper, the Daily... read on
