Fans attending Saturday’s Miami Hurricanes home opener against Appalachian State saw something pretty unique, and it had absolutely nothing to do with football. Somehow, a cat not only got loose in the stadium, but it was hanging by a wire that was dangling off the upper deck. As some fans took out their cell phones and began recording, people a hundred feet below began to mobilize and some who brought flags into the stadium started spreading them out in anticipation of catching the kitty if and when it fell. The frightened feline finally lost its grip on the wire and began falling the audible gasp that came from the crowd as the feline plummeted toward the 100 level was quickly replaced by cheers when it was shown to have survived the ordeal. It did not appear that the cat was harmed after the fall, and the fans who caught it quickly held it up to show everyone else that the kitty was okay.
An alligator handler got wrangled in by the creature she was hired to control but before things turned deadly some on-the-spot heroics by zoo guests saved the day.
An unidentified employee of Scales and Tails Utah who was in charge of showing off one of the facility’s gators to paying customers got ensnared in the animal’s teeth as it clamped down on her hand, and barrel-rolled her.
Luckily, a zoo guest literally threw himself into the mix jumping on the gator’s back freeing the handler, while escaping himself unscathed.

It is truly an epic event. The first Bay2Brooklyn event was in 2011 for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
A huge “Thank you” to the 10 riders, Tony, and the entire staff of Bay 2 Brooklyn 2021.

Albuquerque Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III is campaigning to be Mayor and was interrupted at an event on Tuesday by a large dildo attached to a drone.
Baby Huey here, and recently my 23-year-old cousin Jack was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer.
Jack Delmore graduated from the University of California, Berkeley last May. Jack played on CAL’s baseball team during his junior year and was supposed to play his senior year, but the pandemic caused their entire season to be canceled. That alone is such a bummer because he thought he would not have a chance to use up his last year of eligibility to play College Sports. Luckily, he was able to transfer to Holy Names University in Oakland and was recruited to play for their team.
Unfortunately, with his diagnosis, he’s not able to play this season, and instead he has begun treatment. Despite all these setbacks I’m so proud to find out that with the help of his team, they are partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to raise money to help make a wish come true for another child in need. I respect how despite being sick he’s trying to pay it forward and help someone else get their wish fulfilled.
If you would like to make a donation to Jack Delmore’s Make-A-Wish Fundraiser aka the Delly Drive, please click here.
Thank you for the support, Boneheads.

More Info About the Delly Drive:
The Delly Drive campaign is inspired by Jack Delmore, a member of Holy Names’ baseball team and Hawk family, who was recently diagnosed with lymphoma cancer before the start of the season. Jack grew up in Alameda and attended Saint Joseph Notre Dame High school as well as Chabot JC. As a graduate transfer from UC Berkeley, the Hawks were expecting Jack to be an integral part of their team. Although the news came as a shock, Jack has taken this challenge head on with his family, friends, teammates, and Hawk Nation by his side.
Jack is a true inspiration not only on the baseball field, but as a young man. In true Jack form, Jack has decided to help others and partner with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make some young child’s dream come true.
A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter.
The HNU Baseball team is taking on the Make-A-Wish pledge today with Jack leading the way. We hope you will join us in the Delly Drive to help reach our goal to make a wish for a child and their family today.
Stronger Than Cancer
Together for Delly
Yesterday afternoon multiple lanes of traffic on Highway 101 near Highway 92 in San Mateo were shut down after Police surrounded a dump truck on the freeway with a man who had gotten out and climbed on top of a pile of what looked like gravel or asphalt in the back.
At first it looked like he was going to give up and surrender but then he appeared to throw whatever was in the back of the truck at officers, which led the Police Officers to move in and arrested him.
The man was taken away on a stretcher.
Lamont & Tonelli interviewed Paul “Anthem” Stanley from KISS about his upcoming new album with Soul Station titled Now And Then, available for preorder ahead of the March 19th release at paulstanley.com.
KISS co-founder & frontman, best-selling author and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer PAUL STANLEY’s Soul Station released their brand-new track “I, Oh I”. Written, arranged, and orchestrated by Paul Stanley, “I, Oh I” is the first original song to be released from the band’s forthcoming album Now and Then, out on March 19 via UMe, available for pre-order. A collection of nine classic soul covers and five original tracks, Now and Then will also feature the band’s acclaimed version of Five Stairsteps’ “O-O-H Child” as well as their take on The Spinners, “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love.”
Set for release on March 19, Now and Then is the first-ever full-length album from Soul Station: A band gathering some of today’s leading musicians to pay tribute to the greatest artists and songs from the R&B and soul catalog to keep this vital music current. While a surprise to many, Stanley’s early pivotal roots in this music has quietly turned this passion into a celebrated touring and recording band. Stanley’s 15-piece ensemble group has toured the U.S. and Japan, but it wasn’t until recently that they were able to get in the studio together and record Now and Then.
