      After several failed attempts to stem the oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, BP has begun pumping mud and cement into the breach, a process known in the industry as "top kill." Not to be confused with that unidentified thing on Donald Trump's head. (Bob Mills)

      Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a former Marine Corps Reservists, now claims it was just a matter of misplaced words when he said he served in Vietnam he didn’t really mean he was “in” Vietnam.

(RJ Currie)

      A game between the Chicago Cubs and L.A. Dodgers was delayed for 18 minutes in top of the fourth when a nearby fire caused the Wrigley Field lights to go out. I'm surprised cubs fans noticed; usually by the 4th inning they have their eyes closed. (RJ Currie)

      Drew Storen, less than a year removed from pitching for Stanford, got not only his first major league win this week, but a hit in his first at bat.

He then balanced the bomb on his nose, threw it back at the trainer. (Jay Leno)

      Las Vegas magician David Copperfield is no longer facing a sexual assault lawsuit after his female accuser dropped her claims Wednesday. He's free of all charges. An hour after his name was cleared, Ben Roethlisberger called and offered him a million dollars for the trick. (Argus Hamilton)
