The bizarre news story of the year emerged this weekend when a naked man was caught by Miami cops chewing on the face of another person. When the cops arrived on the scene, they ordered him to stop and shot him when he kept on chewing on pieces of the man's flesh.

The man jumped up and growled after being shot once. When the cops realized this was not just your ordinary perp, they unloaded several shots and exterminated him like a rabid beast.

Police surmise the attacker went into a cocaine-induced pyschosis. Even bath salts may be to blame. The attacker is identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene.

This story became associated with a so-called "zombie apocalypse" and became a trending topic over the past few days. There are some people who even fear a zombie apocalypse could become reality in the future, with humans being infected by a rabies-like disease.

The story out of Miami is certainly not the case of a zombie, but rather just a homeless man hopped up on PCP or cocaine...or perhaps both.

The victim is in critical condition and missing his eyes and his nose. That's the sad reality of this otherwise bizarre story.

What To Expect When You’re Expecting is the book every mother, mother to be, or future mom to be considers their pregnancy handbook. For any woman who does not want children, it’s the most feared book in the world. It is also the inspiration for the new hilarious movie also called What To Expect When You’re Expecting.What To Expect When You’re Expecting: Book vs. Movie photo- blogs.indiewire.com
          
I happen to be one of those women who fears this book like it’s the black plague. However, the movie had me rolling in my seat and intrigued enough to open the book.  While the book itself is a terrifying reference book of everything that can and will happen to you while you’re pregnant, the movie covered every scary topic with humor and grace. Right down to miscarriages, emergency-sections, and adoptions.
          
The star studded cast, which includes Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Anna Kendrick, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock and many more even had the gentleman next to me laughing until he cried. The movie follows five couples as their worlds are turned upside down with the challenges impending parenthood always presents.  What I honestly adored more than anything else was the role the fathers played in the movies. I have to say the movie is also one of the few romantic comedies that’s actually geared towards the male population. From a mock fight club that entails walking their children around the park to discussions of dropping, almost drowning, and losing their children, every dad, dad to be, and every other man on the planet will find humor in this film.

If you don’t have to read the book, skip it. It will only scare you, especially if you aren’t expecting or don’t want to be expecting. However the movie is one of the best comedies I have seen in a very long time. You will get an upfront seat at the inability to control your bladder, the mood swings, and the beauty of birth, filled with unexpected humor and even a few tears. There’s not a person on the planet that can’t relate to or find humor in this movie, as pregnancy has touched each of our lives.

Just when you thought Van Halen could get through a tour, it was announced that all summer tour dates after their June 26th show in New Orleans have been postponed, including the July 11th Philadelphia show at Wells Fargo Center. As usual, no statement from Van Halen’s camp has been released in regards to the matter.

I know what you’re thinking.

Let me rephrase that: I know what we’re ALL thinking. Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth are at it again. It’s not that big of a stretch to assume this. A source told RollingStone.com that Van Halen's members "hate each other. The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting," said the source. But before we all jump to conclusions here (and believe me, it’s easy to do with van Halen), let’s consider the following possibilities as to why these dates have been postponed.

1. Like the statement says, the shows have been “postponed.” That doesn’t mean cancelled. You would think if the guys are hating each other that much, the dates would just be wiped out. Keep in mind the band is playing through the end of June. Who knows? I find it odd that some of these dates were added just a few weeks ago and now this announcement is made. The same thing happened when the Monkees toured last summer, but that was an issue with management, as they mistakenly double booked Monkees tour dates with solo dates of the band members. That didn’t happen here, but maybe there is a contract issue of some sort.

2. Hopefully, there aren’t more health issues within the band. Eddie Van Halen’s struggles with substance abuse are well documented, but he seemed to be doing so well. Van Halen did admit in a recent interview however, that he was treated again for cancer twice last year.

3. According to TMZ- Van Halen is pretty burned out right now, which I can totally see and hope is the case. These guys are a power band and bring it every night, but it’s not 1984 anymore. Three of the four members of this band are pushing 60 years of age. Unlike the Rolling Stones, they don’t too many ballads. Even Alex Van Halen has cut his drum solo short this tour, and we mentioned Eddie’s troubles earlier with his cancer scares.

So that’s all we know for now. Believe me, I immediately expected the worst and kind of still do, but let’s not assume anything drastic just yet.

It has been nine years since the Philadelphia 76ers have won a playoff series.  It was so long ago, that LeBron James was still a high schooler, Larry Brown was still coaching the Sixers (resigning after their loss to the Pistons), and the Eagles were coming off their 2nd straight NFC Championship loss.

Lou WilliamsSince then we have seen Larry Brown coach three different teams, the Eagles rise and fall, the Flyers lose to Chicago in the Stanley Cup Finals, and the Phillies win one World Series.

Friday night the 76ers finally won a series with their dramatic 78-77 victory over the Bulls, which could have gone either way in the last few seconds. Andre Iguodala has been maligned for much of his career for not being a clutch player, but he came up huge in the waning moments for the 76ers.

While the Sixers have benefited from the Bulls' losses of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, you have to admire their passion. Their talent level is mediocre, but their heart and passion are incredible. With the Flyers' debacle against the Devils and the Phillies looking like a team on the downswing, the Sixers have our attention once again.

Doug Collins had gone 23 years without a playoff series victory to his credit. Now he has finally gotten that monkey off his back.

Back to reality though; the 76ers are going to face a brutal defensive matchup in round two against the Celtics. Sure, they caught a break by not having to face Miami, but they will be lucky to score 75-80 a game against a stout Celtics defense which ranked 2nd in the NBA in points allowed. Chicago was #1 and the 76ers were #3 overall.

Until then, the 76ers need to enjoy this victory. They have Philadelphia's full attention now.

Ten years ago today, one of the most legendary press conferences of all-time happened right here in Philadelphia.
 
The Philadelphia 76ers were fresh off a trip to the NBA Finals in 2001, but had just been beaten by the Boston Celtics in a five-game series in the first round of the 2002 NBA Playoffs.

When head coach Larry Brown insinuated that his star player Allen Iverson’s lack of practice may have been one of the reasons the Sixers failed to repeat their success that season.

What ensued was the following. You’ve all seen it. Just enjoy it one more time.

When the news broke Wednesday afternoon that “America’s Oldest Teenager” Dick Clark died at age 82 following a heart attack, I think a little part of everybody’s youth was lost as well.Dick Clark photo: aberdeennews.com

After all, do you remember a New Year’s Eve (with the exception of 2004) without Dick Clark? Better yet, do you parents remember life without Dick Clark?! Hard to imagine, isn’t it?

Believe it or not, a fact that’s not discussed all that much is that Clark’s career was practically launched right here in Philadelphia.

After spending time on local television and radio in his native New York, Clark moved to Drexel Hill in 1952 and took a job at WIFL (the old call letters of WPVI, which was also a television station) as a disc jockey. Around the same time, Bob Horn’s Bandstand premiered on WIFL. Originally just a fill-in host for Horn, Clark became the full time host after Horn was fired after a DUI arrest. The show was renamed American Bandstand, it went national the next year, and rest is history. Bandstand moved to California in 1964, and Clark stayed on as the show's host for 25 years just prior to the show’s cancellation in 1989.

Clark’s Philadelphia roots were also evident in American Dreams, a show which he produced involving a Philadelphia family which ran on NBC from 2002 to 2005.

Of course, in between Clark’s time in Philadelphia and his run on Bandstand, he developed countless game shows, hosted numerous radio countdowns, opened a chain of restaurants with the ‘American Bandstand’ theme (one formerly in King of Prussia), and produced and hosted Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. With the exception of 2004 (the year Clark suffered), Clark hosted the show every year in some capacity, as he counted down the New Year as the ball dropped from Times Square in New York.

There might never be another career in the entertainment industry that was so diverse as well as successful as Dick Clark’s. And if he didn’t move here to Philadelphia, chances are none of that would have been possible.

For now, so long Dick Clark.

Johnny's Rainbow Foundation Golf Outing benefits local families in Delaware County

Johnny's Rainbow Foundation was created in 2006 when Lisa and Jack Bellopede lost their son Johnny at the age of 9. Johnny had Smith-Magenis Syndrome and Autism.

It is the foundation's mission to help families with special needs children by providing them with financial support called a Rainbow Grant.
 
This grant is intended to make a significant difference in the life of the special needs child by funding equipment, experiences, parent education, family counseling, therapy, or any other of the child's needs. In order to raise funds for JRF, we hold an annual golf outing and social fundraiser. All proceeds from our event will benefit local families in Delaware County. Your support is greatly appreciated.

The Philadelphia Flyers are outclassing the Pittsburgh Penguins in every facet of their game during the NHL Playoffs.
 
And now they have the real Hulk Hogan in their corner, as opposed to that wanna-be look alike they have in Pittsburgh.

Yep, the Hulkster himself appeared in a video at Wells Fargo Center during Game 3 Sunday to deliver a special message to Flyers fans!  Now apparently, Hogan did the same thing for the Penguins recently, taking away some of the pizzaz of this. Nonetheless, it's still cool that he did it, and the fact that the Flyers are rolling all over the Penguins helps too. Man, what some people will do for a buck these days.

WHATCHA’ GONNA DO DOWN 0-3 PENGUINS?!!!!!!!!
