    In 1959 Harvey Haddix pitched perhaps the best game ever — and lost BOB DVORCHAK In his later years with the Pirates, after he was the pitching coach for the 1979 champions and before the baseball bureaucracy no longer recognized his game, Harvey Haddix reflected on the most extraordinary game ever pitched.

    First lady Melania Trump's wax doppelganger was unveiled Thursday at Spain's Museo de Cera de Madrid. The wax museum recreated Trump's look from last year's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where she took to the stage and spoke to party delegates in a rousing speech. The wax figure's debut was timed to the one-year anniversary of the convention. Trump's wax figure -- which stands next to an existing wax figure of her husband, President Donald Trump -- wears the same Roksanda dress with puffed sleeves she wore at the RNC. The wax figure also dons a pair of nude heels,...

    On Independence Day, I spent a lot of time thinking of our Founding Fathers. Not as historical leaders but as regular, everyday men. I thought about what it must have been like for them to live under such tyranny and oppression, their hopes and dreams of something so much better, and their willingness to fight and die to achieve it, all so they could ensure that future generations would never have to experience the things they had. I, also, couldn’t help but notice that the country we live in today bears no resemblance to the one they fought so hard...

    The ’80s classic Back to the Future Part II isn’t just one of the greatest sequels of all time. It was also a visual feast for the eyes that gave us an (exciting) peek at what 2015 MIGHT look like. But the movie also left us wanting a few things that we hoped would be available by 2015, like Marty’s bad-ass Nike self-lacing sneakers… …the iconic AF hoverboard… …and of course, the oh-so-cool looking Pepsi Perfect bottle. Well, Pepsi finally delivered and created Pepsi Perfect!!! According to USA Today, the limited-edition Pepsi Perfect (which is Pepsi made with REAL sugar)...

    Writing for LifeSiteNews, Hillary White reported last Friday that Bishop Michael Campbell, "...has pressured one of his deacons to cease blogging in a move described by critics as an effort to silence the deacon’s lively defense of orthodox Catholic doctrine and the papacy." White continues: "Deacon Nick Donnelly’s well-travelled blog, 'Protect the Pope,' now carries the note, 'From its inception to the beginning of March 2014, Rev. Nick Donnelly, was the main author and editor of this blog. At this time he is in a period of reflection and prayer.' Deacon Nick Donnelly The diocese of Lancaster issued a statement...

    This Sunday, throughout the LDS Church, 1 Nephi 1-7 from the Book of Mormon will be studied in the adult Sunday School, or Gospel Doctrines class. Probably the most quoted passage from this section of the Book of Mormon is this part of 1 Nephi 3:7: “I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” Mormons have quoted it in many different settings and situations to urge people that they could do what was commanded of them. After...

    Grey squirrels are ubiquitous in North America - scurrying across our lawns and up our trees, burying nuts and taunting our tantalised dogs.Bright-eyed and bushy tailed, squirrels are cute, furry and, apparently, very edible. The notion of stewed squirrel may not tempt everybody's taste buds, but in an age of tightening belts and financial severity, the humble abundance of the squirrel is causing some to reconsider its epicurean virtue. American hunter William Hovey Smith, a self-described outdoor enthusiast, loves a spot of squirrel stew, made of course from critters he hunts himself. "It is certainly a very American dish. We've...

    Islamofascism: O'Reilly, Whoopi and Joy are all wrong. The 9/11 terrorists weren't "Muslim extremists" or just plain "Muslims." A liberal newspaper reporter says they were model Muslims. More precisely, they were "perfect soldiers" for Allah, says Los Angeles Times national correspondent Terry McDermott. He would know. After traveling to the hometowns of the Muslim hijackers and investigating their family backgrounds, McDermott discovered they were not heretics or even "extremists," but in fact good, pious Muslims. And their families and communities encouraged them to join the never-ending Islamic holy war, or jihad, against us.

    Strategy Page ^ | 5th September, 2010
    The U.S. Army is converting thousands of its older AGM-114K Hellfire missiles to the new AGM-114R standard. The AGM-114R completed its final testing late last year. Hellfires are the most frequently used American missiles these days. Recently, Hellfire added the ability to go after targets directly below, or behind, the aircraft firing it. This solves a particular problem with UAVs, because the vidcam on board can spot targets directly below, or even behind, the aircraft, while the Hellfire was designed to only go after targets in front of it. The new Hellfire mod accomplished all this with a multifunction guidance...

    Fifty years ago Harvey Haddix threw 12 perfect innings—more than any pitcher before or since—and then lost. How the unassuming lefty's brilliant effort turned bittersweet. _______ HARVEY HADDIX stepped onto the rain-softened mound and exhaled. It was May 26, 1959, nearing 10 o'clock on a muggy night in half-empty Milwaukee County Municipal Stadium. Dark clouds loomed overhead in the windswept sky, lightning flickered in the distance. There were two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates lefthander tugged at the bill of his black cap, glared at his catcher from underneath and nodded. Not one...

The 18-year-old senior at Monsignor Pace High School is closing in on a prestigeous record of perfection that has even the President of the United States taking notice. Torres is just a week away from capping her public school career with 13 years of perfect attendance. "Sometimes I'd be like, 'Please miss one day, one day please,'" Torres said. Her parents always said "No." Torres has already received letters from former President George W. Bush regarding the modern-day miracle feat among youth today. She...

    Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Mark Buehrle became the first pitcher in the majors to throw a perfect game since Randy Johnson performed the feat on May 18, 2004, as the White Sox blanked the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-0, in the finale of a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. It was just the 18th perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball. The last White Sox hurler to toss a perfect game was Charles Robertson on August 30, 1922 against the Detroit Tigers. Ironically, Buehrle was the last White Sox pitcher to throw a no-hitter. Buehrle completed the...

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - With one mighty heave, Tom Brady and Randy Moss took care of the record books. Now it's down to business for the unbeaten New England Patriots: stamping themselves as the greatest team in NFL history. The Patriots completed a perfect if somewhat joyless journey through the regular season Saturday night, finishing with a remarkable 16-0 record following a thrilling 38-35 comeback victory over the New York Giants. New England became the first NFL team since the 1972 Dolphins to win every game on the schedule, and that one was only 14-0. This victory required a...

    When it comes to defining greatness, at least in comparing teams from different eras, there are only two absolutes: 1. It can’t be done. 2. Of course it can be done, stupid. Just ask any former player. “Well, you know what I’m going to say,” said Mike Singletary, the former linebacker for the 1985 Chicago Bears. “Of course I’m biased. But I think we would’ve done pretty well against New England.” The Patriots are 15-0. Barring a sudden show of sympathy from Bill Belichick or a career day from Eli Manning, they figure to complete an undefeated regular season today...
