That took long enough. I've been throwing stuff for years. Hats off to Kerry Wood who did something rash, disgusting, inexplicable and inexcusable. He had an honest expression of emotion and (gasp!) threw his cap and glove into the crowd the other night. Bravo. I hate watching the Cubs. Sad, but true. They are a constant reminder that all the money in the world can't solve deep-rooted problems in culture and philosophy. Heck, St. Louis lost Albert Pujols, Tony LaRussa and Dave Duncan and they're humming along.

Ever since LeBron James chose Miami over the Bulls in summer 2010, he's been known as a crybaby in Chicago. He wants calls from the refs. He doesn't like physical play. He can't stand airline food. All right, guessing about that last one. But we're certain that the Bulls get under his skin, and even when he's celebrating, he's more Lovie Smith-stoic than Carlos Boozer-excitable. Here's how Game 2 unfolded, according to James' mood. FIRST QUARTER Whiny: Dwyane Wade misses a dunk after going around Marco Belinelli.

It was only natural after Vin left "Jersey Shore" that Pauly D. head out to a club to meet the rest of the gang and tell them the news. Everyone is surprised Vinny took all his stuff, and Deena sobs into her moustache, saying, "I love him. " That's when Mama JWoww lays the smack down and helps the drunk troll compose herself in the bathroom. G-Yanni asks Snooki if she loves Vinny, and Sam and Ron are quiet, just as they're instructed to be by the show's producers. The next morning, everyone's still talking about...

Her parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, wrapped up their divorce settlement in seemingly record time earlier this month, but it's Suri Cruise who's grabbing most of the headlines. Eonline.com is a particular harbinger of Suri stories, drumming up such fantastic headlines as "Suri Cruise Is Determined to Jump This Puddle -- Does She Make It?" (OK, that story ran way back in March. Seriously, that's a real headline, look it up.) We took a totally fictional peek inside the mind of the probably-super-cranky 6-year-old to see what her life might be like.

Between texting, Yelping, tweeting, Instagraming and coming up with a good line for a Facebook check-in (don't judge), distracted dining has become the new norm and, let me tell you, I am all for it. But it looks like one restaurant owner is trying to change our dining etiquette. According to a recent CNN story, a restaurant in L.A. is offering customers a 5 percent discount to check their phones at the door to be more in the moment with their meal, and with each other. Huh. Back to the basics?
