Earlier this month, three men from the United Arab Emirates were visiting Saudi Arabia and were DEPORTED by the Islamic police for being TOO GOOD LOOKING. The police were worried women, quote, "could fall for them." Well, photos of one of the guys surfaced. He's a photographer-slash-actor-slash-poet and, yes, he's pretty handsome.
Remember when our money used to just be green? These days our $5 bills are covered in purple, our 10s are covered in red, our 20s are in blue, and no one really has 50s anymore so I don't remember what color they use.
And now, our $100 bills are about to be covered in GOLD.
The Federal Reserve just released the first images of the brand new $100 bills, which will go into circulation this October.
They've still got BEN FRANKLIN on the front. But now there's a light gold quill and a shiny gold inkwell next to him. The bottom-right "100" on the front is also embossed in gold.
And on the back, the bill looks TOTALLY different. A gold-colored "100" runs along the entire right side. The bill also has a blue, 3-D security strip across the front.
The changes aren't JUST to make the bills look more ostentatious . . . they're also supposed to help cut down on counterfeiting. The $100 bill is one of the most counterfeited bills in the world.
This is only the fourth design for the $100 bill . . . but three of those redesigns have happened in the past 20 years as counterfeiters have gotten more technologically advanced.
In the wake of tragedy even one of the bitterest rivalries in professional sports can seem trivial. It was with that spirit that the New York Yankees paid tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings on Tuesday night by playing the Fenway Park theme song, Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," at Yankee Stadium. The song has been a staple at Fenway since 2002. Diamond took note, posting on Twitter, "Thank you NY Yankees for playing 'Sweet Caroline' for the people of Boston. You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil #OneBoston." The Yankees also gave a shout-out to Boston on the scoreboard with a special image that displayed the Yankees and Red Sox logos with the words, "New York stands with Boston…Pray for Boston."

Twins celebrating the weather!
What a dreary, cold spring so far! We braved the cold and had a blast at the Twins' game Friday night at Target Field. Even though the Twins got destroyed by the NY Mets.
The tour is in Seger's hometown of Detroit tonight (Thursday) and Saturday. Walsh has a one-off show Monday in Huntington, New York, followed by what may be his and Seger's first-ever show in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday.
