*1/2 (out of four) It's a miracle! Not one of those happy miracles, though. More like, “Sorry, Bella, there's now a vampire growing inside you.” That's because 18-year-old Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her new, much-older-than-that vampire husband Edward (Robert Pattinson) didn't think she could get pregnant.

Most of us have high school acquaintances-turned-Facebook friends who pop up on our feeds with updates that make us feel sorry for our 16-year-old selves. THOSE were the people we chose to befriend?!

I think I've got this sabermetrics thing figured out. I'm on to Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer. After analyzing charts of data, tendencies, numerous situations, probabilities, outcomes, statistics, the Cubs have figured out they need to go after Prince Fielder and/or Albert Pujols. Well, duh. I could have told you that. Geniuses, I'll tell ya. If they're so smart, how come David DeJesus is a Cub? Guy hit less than .250 last year. I want to see his metrics. You know, watching these guys go after the big boys, I suddenly remembered something about...
