Baseball is here

New York Yankees Vs. Toronto Blue Jays held at Rogers Stadium, with Blue Jays beating the Yankees 3-0Toronto, Canada - 18.09.11When: 18 Sep 2011Credit: WENNIt is that time again everybody. Spring has arrived and it is Opening Day. In my opinion it is one of the greatest days of the year, with all the hope and anticipation of great things to come. Of course because I am a Cubs fan that feeling goes away pretty quick and probably will again this year. So with the season not officially starting for a few hours let me give you my Baseball predictions. That way when I am wrong you can throw these guesses back into my face. First up the American League. In the East it will be the Yankees year. There is something about Derek Jeter that lets things just work out for him and I think going out a playoff team makes sense for him. The Orioles will surprise everyone and finish second. In the AL central it will be all Tigers. This Detroit team is poised to win this division going away, In the West I think this is finally the year that The Angels live up to potential and win it with the Rangers also making the playoffs.

In the National league, The Nationals will bounce back and win the division, as the Braves finish second. In the Central the Cards will win a tight race over the Pirates who will once again get a wild card birth and in the West look for the Dodgers to win.
Cards will top the Dodgers in the NL and the Angels will beat the Yankees in the AL. It will take 7 but the Cards will beat the Angels to become your 2014 world Champs.
That’s my predictions whats yours?

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
