Tuesday Halolinks: What's the Buzz? Facebook, Cats, and Idiots!

The week between Christmas and New Years is notorious for being the slowest baseball news period of the year. It's almost like being a Pittsburgh Pirates fan during the rest of the year...yeah, that boring. So while billionaire owners vacation in exotic locations and millionaire players are trimming their trees with hundred dollar bills, we riff-raff will have to pass the time with this:

  • Speaking of Pittsburgh Pirates' fans: Man jailed after Facebooking a store burglary - "An 18-year-old Pittsburgh man is accused of burglarizing a market with three teens, then posting pictures on his Facebook page showing the suspects mugging with some of the loot." Then the brilliant detective added, "Well, I guess they're just stupid kids," Detective Valerie Milie said Monday. Obvious quote is obvious.
  • The only question I have is...why did it take 6 hours? Man crashes Lamborghini 6 hours after winning it - San Francisco Chronicle. "A Utah man who won a $380,000 Lamborghini in a convenience store chain's contest says he crashed the sports car six hours after he got it."
  • Ahhh, that's soooo nice! Anonymous donors pay strangers' layaway accounts. "Before she left the store Tuesday evening, the Indianapolis woman in her mid-40s had paid the layaway orders for as many as 50 people. On the way out, she handed out $50 bills and paid for two carts of toys for a woman in line at the cash register." Mrs.Pujols spending her ashtray money.
