  • High Speed Chase Video. Awesome!

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Those of you with a need for speed need to watch this. A motorcycle cop in Alabama was recently led on a high-speed chase through the city of Florence, and luckily for us, the intense chase was caught on the officer's helmet camera. It's pretty awesome.

  • LINDSAY LOHAN: Letterman Grills Her

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Lindsay Lohan may not show up for depositions, but she was front and center at The Late Show Tuesday.

    David Letterman took the opportunity to hit the troubled actress with some hard questions. Dave started the interview by asking, "Aren't you supposed to be in rehab now?"  Lindsay responded, "Don't you watch anything that goes on? What are you a tabloid now?"

    Linds later told Dave that she'll be entering rehab on May 2nd and believes it's "a blessing and not a curse."

    But Dave kept pressing, asking if Lohan believes she truly has an addiction problem. That's when Lindsay said Dave was acting more like Dr. Phil.

  • Blake Shelton to Marry Kelly Clarkson!.......... And Ashley Monroe from the Pistol Annies!

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Looks like Kelly Clarkson has nailed something borrowed for her upcoming nuptials later this year! She says Blake Shelton will officiate her wedding.

    Kelly says, “He’s actually marrying Ashley Monroe from the Pistol Annies, as well… You’re technically already married when the ceremony happens, so it’s not like it’s going to be null and void or anything because it’s Blake.”

    So, is she nervous about having a potential drunk at the ceremony? She says, “He plays that persona up, but he’s very serious… He’s so into it. He can be very sentimental.”

    We don’t have Blake’s confirmation yet, but odds are the plans are true. And though Kelly has picked a month to throw the wedding, she hasn’t set a date yet. Kelly adds, “Our date keeps getting switched because of all the schedules with everybody.”

    Kelly's fiance, Brandon Blackstock, is Blake's manager.

  • Hockey: Moose Leg Hits the Ice

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Every major sport brings with it some fan traditions that are unique to that particular sport. For instance, you'll probably only find rabid fans dressed in ridiculous costumes at football games, or an entire stadium of people singing together at a soccer game.

    Hockey, too, has an odd tradition – fans throwing items on the ice. There is, of course, the tradition of throwing hats on the ice when a home team player scores three goals. But some other unusual items are sometimes tossed. For instance, during the playoffs, it's common for a fan in Detroit to throw an octopus on the ice – a good luck tradition that started in the '50s. And Florida Panthers fans throw rubber rats on the ice. One thing that both have in common is that each tradition was started by one person who just decided to throw the object on the ice.

    Earlier this week at a Junior hockey league game in Manitoba, Canada, fans may have seen a new tradition born. The home team, The Blizzard, defeated the visiting Kings to send their playoff series to a deciding seventh game. One fan was so excited, he threw a moose leg onto the ice. An actual severed moose leg. Somewhere Bullwinkle is walking around with a limp. (Yahoo Sports)

    Carrie Underwood People cover

    Carrie Underwood has a simple motivation to keep in shape -- her husband Mike Fisher's killer body.

    She tells People, "Even when he's like, 'I'm so out of shape,' he still has a six-pack. Having Mike there –- I want to be a hot wife!"

    Carrie takes her vows seriously and says if her career were to get in the way of her marriage, she'd give it up. "If Mike ever told me he needed me to quit, I'd quit. When you make that promise to somebody, and you stand before God and your family and friends, you've got to do everything that you possibly can to make that work."

    Carrie is on the cover of this week's People magazine.

    Apparently, Jay Leno has given his blessing to NBC so that Jimmy Fallon will be the next host of The Tonight Show. Just one month ago the rumors started, and last night, The Hollywood Reporter cited a source who claimed Fallon has just closed a new deal with the network that basically guarantees he’s Leno’s replacement.

    When exactly Fallon takes over is still in flux. Also, NBC intends to delay any official announcement until Fallon’s replacement has been signed, but an insider indicated (quote) “It will be Seth Meyers unless something goes awry in the deal-making.”

  • The World Acording to Blake

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    If Blake Shelton ruled the world, he'd banish two things from his kingdom -- flip-flops and skinny jeans for men.

    He tells People Country, "If you have flip-flops in a fire, you're not going to save somebody. We'll have to carry you out." And skinny jeans? "I just want to see a man ready to get some work done. That's just the grumpy old Oklahoma guy in me."

    Blake is the cover boy in the April issue of People Country.
