UAB Might Drop Football

Lost in the hoopla associated with the Iron Bowl (which Auburn lost, 44-55), there's another football story under the radar on most sports news services.

The University of Alabama - Birmingham (UAB) might be dropping its football program!  That's right, no more UAB Blazer football!  Anyway, this story needs to be confirmed. 

Apparently, Alabama is not all football crazy!

Untied Bikini Top

An unfortunate accident resulted from a prank.  While Brittany Lahm was driving, a backseat passenger untied her bikini top.  Ms. Lahm was distracted and took her hands off the wheel briefly;

An appeals court has cleared her of culpability for the fatal crash in agreeing she faced an "unforeseen emergency" when a back-seat passenger untied her bikini top.

The July 2008 crash occurred on the New York Thruway.

Lahm and a group of friends were returning to Rockland County after a day at the shore. Brandon Berman, who allegedly pulled the bikini strings, was killed.

The Brooklyn Appellate Division upheld the conclusion of a Rockland jury, which found Lahm's bikini top problem constituted "a sudden and unforeseen emergency not of her own making."

An Ass for the Republicans to Ride

Last week asses made the news in a big way.

First of all, there was the much-replicated gluteus maximi of Kim Kardashian displayed on Paper magazine in its full glory.  She was definitely a cheeky lady, to be sure.

Then there was Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economics professor who was a White House consultant for the Affordable Care Act.  He declared that a lack of transparency around the Affordable Care Act was politically advantageous.

"Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the 'stupidity of the American voter' or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass." Gruber had  said.

In other words, a little bit of the shell game.  The Republicans are likely to say a lot about this, whatever the merits or demerits of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Speaking about asses. here's a more pleasing one:
