Will Smith 'Dead' Rumor...Just another Celebrity Death Hoax

Will Smith, is reportedly the favorite to land the lead role in Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Django Unchained." But, that's not the major reason why his name was blowing up on the internet and Twitter. This morning there was a nasty rumor put out there about Will Smith's tragic death in New Zealand this weekend. A website, which I won't name put it out there that Will Smith fell off a cliff while filming in New Zealand. And, the rumor blew up on Twitter as people ran for it. Will Smith is in fact alive and well.

Just goes to show you that some websites will stoop to any low for traffic.

Phillies Take Game One Against Nationals on Memorial Day

The Phillies were down 3-0 early on in their first game of a 3-game series against the Nationals, but fought back hard to take game one 5-4. Jayson Werth, has recently stated his displeasure over the Nationals' losing ways. Face it, the Nationals are a bad baseball team. Even when the Phillies surrendered a 3-run lead was there any doubt they would lose with Roy Halladay on the hill?

The Phillies have now scored 5 or more runs in 6 of their past 7 games. With the Phillies' offensive resurgence since Chase Utley's return there is plenty of reason for optimism.

Sarah Palin's Bus Tour Takes Her To Gettysburg

Sarah Palin is creating a lot of buzz with her mystery bus tour, which takes her to historical locations throughout the United States. Yesterday she was in the D.C. area and toured George Washington's home in Mount Vernon and Ft. McHenry in Baltimore. Many feel that this is just a prelude to her announcing her run for President in 2012. Sarah Palin's mystery bus tour continued today and she stopped in Gettysburg. The rumor is that she'll head to Philadelphia next and appear at The Liberty Bell. She is keeping her locations close to the vest and told reporters that this isn't part of a prelude to her potential 2012 Presidential run.
