Dildos Delay Hockey Match

A hockey game in Sweden was delayed when fans of the AIK ice hockey team from Stockholm caused a "dildo downpour" and inflated a giant penis in the stands.

Apparently plans for the prank had been posted online, and was targeted against a former AIK player who had previously been involved in a sex scandal, and who was now playing for the opposing team.
"We'd also heard mention of it, but we decided that it would only be worse if we went out and told the fans they were absolutely not allowed to throw dildos on the ice," said AIK club head Mats Hedenstrom to the newspaper.

R.I.P. Lloyd Thaxton

Lloyd Thaxton, one of my childhood icons, has died. He brought joy to my life, as much for his enthusiasm as for anything else. Whereas Dick Clark was polished and boring, Thaxton was a force, creating something out of little more than his love of music and kids. He will be long remembered.
