A 92-Year Cubs Fan And A Lifetime Of Baseball Memories
Huffington Post - 4 months
My dad was the quintessential Cubs fan. He had a 92-year love affair with his Cubs. Years ago, when he was 80, as the Cubs made the playoffs, he reminisced. Now with the Cubs in the World Series, or as we Chicago fans say "Hell frozen over," it feels appropriate to share his story. The year was 1927 and Calvin Coolidge was President. Charles Lindberg flies his first solo flight from New York to Paris. The Model A car debuted and the mechanical cotton picker was invented. That was also the year my father's love affair with the Chicago Cubs began. "I was four years old," said Sheldon Sternberg, 80, and former Wilmette resident. "I sat on my father's lap for my first Cub's game and Hack Wilson autographed a baseball for me." When asked if he kept the autographed ball, Sternberg said, "I probably used it." Hack Wilson held the National League home run record of 56 home runs, a record that would not be broken for 68 years. O ...

Sarah Ferguson Says This Royal Family Member Still Makes Her Nervous
Huffington Post - 4 months
Twenty years have passed since Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew divorced. But after all these years, there’s still one member of the royal family Fergie finds intimidating: Her former mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II. (Hey, who wouldn’t be a little nervous in the queen’s presence? The woman is fierce.)  “I always get really nervous before meeting the boss,” Fergie said during an interview on KIIS FM in Sydney, Australia. The 57-year-old Duchess of York was quick to clarify that her former MIL always puts her at ease.  “Oh, of course, she’s brilliant,” she said. “She makes you feel comfortable within the first five seconds.”  Though Fergie’s 1996 divorce from Prince Andrew was a messy one (the tabloids accused Fergie of cheating, with lurid pictures as proof), the exes have maintained a close bond since the split. As recently as 2015, they lived together at Prince Andrew’s home at the Royal Lodge and both remain a strong presence in the lives of ...

The world changed Saturday night at Wrigley
ABC News - 4 months
CHICAGO -- Ron Santo never saw this. Fergie Jenkins never did this. Ernie Banks never lived to see this moment -- to watch the universe change before his eyes. But finally, on Saturday at 9:45 p.m. Wrigley Daylight Time, when the world turned upside-down, it finally happened. That moment. There were two outs left until Cubs Armageddon. Yasiel Puig tapped a one-out ground ball toward shortstop, where Addison Russell realized immediately what had a chance to happen here. The baseball -- THAT baseball -- was hopping directly at him. And his first thought was: "I could not believe it. ... He hit it to me. He hit it to ME." But this ball was traveling so slowly, he wasn't sure it was a double-play ball. So all he told himself was to make sure he got one out -- "and if we get two, that's even sweeter." Except Russell was feeding that baseball to a second baseman who believes everything and anything is possible. Of course ...

The world champions are runaway Rugby Championship leaders and a fourth straight bonus-point win on Saturday -– provided Australia beat Argentina in Perth -- would be enough to regain the southern hemisphere title.

"I think you couple the artistry with celebrity to create a commodity and currency that has tremendous value to raising awareness and advancing the agenda of whatever cause we are backing at that time," said actor William Baldwin, the former president of the Creative Coalition, an entertainment industry advocacy group that focuses on social issues as well as those affecting its members.

Fergie Thinks The Kimye And Taylor Swift Drama Might Just Be 'A Big Master Plan'
Huffington Post - 7 months
Pop culture conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this.  Fergie went on Australia’s “Kyle & Jackie O Show” and talked about her friend Kim Kardashian’s recent saga with Taylor Swift over footage of the singer’s phone call with Kanye West. Swift can be heard approving his “Famous” rap during the call, something she previously denied and cited for her Grammys speech. While the story spawned hashtags like #KimExposedTaylorParty and #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty, that might not be the end of it.  “Kim’s so cool, you’ve gotta respect her sticking up for her husband ... Knowing them, it’s probably a big master plan,” Fergie said. “They’ll probably all come together at the MTV Awards or something.” "Knowing them it's probably a big master plan, they'll probably all come together at the @MTV awards or something." @Fergie #KJshow — Kyle and Jackie O (@kyleandjackieo) July 21, 2016 Of course, the “M.I.L.F. $” singer is probably just joking, but those who hav ...

Kim Kardashian has no time for your criticism.  After dousing herself in milk for Fergie's new "M.I.L.F. $" music video, the reality star hit out at haters who were saying her waist was photoshopped. The 35-year-old responded with a Klassic Kimmy Snapchat, writing "F*ckYoPhotoShop #CorsetLife."  While Kardashian says she didn't use any editing software, she implied her waist does look different because of her corset.  FuckYoPhotoShop #CorsetLife M.I.L.F.$ A video posted by KimKanyeKimYe (@kimkanyekimyeofficial) on Jul 4, 2016 at 3:06am PDT Below are more photos and videos of Kardashian in the music vid:  Milf $ A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Jul 1, 2016 at 4:36pm PDT #MILFMONEY A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Jul 1, 2016 at 5:27pm PDT @kimkardashian #kimkardashian #milfmoney A video posted by M.I.L.F. $ (@m ...

Kim Kardashian Douses Herself In Milk For Fergie's 'M.I.L.F. $' Video
Huffington Post - 8 months
Take note, Kanye West. There is a way to release a music video featuring fully consenting adults that still makes a comment on fame. Who knew? (Everybody.) Fergie premiered the star-studded video for her new single "M.I.L.F. $" on Friday night, featuring famous moms like Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Ciara. And it's T to the A to the S-T-E-Y. Yeah, we kept the E.  Taking inspiration from the '50s housewife aesthetic, the video finds its setting in "Milfville," an idyllic neighborhood where moms are supermodels, the milkman belongs in a J.Crew catalogue and everybody seems dairy very intent on pouring milk all over their bodies. You know, typical mom stuff.  But before the hate tweets about the problematic use of the term “M.I.L.F.,” start rolling in, the 41-year-old singer made a point to tweak the last letter to stand for “follow.” “Changing the acronym to Moms I’d Like To Follow is about empowering women who do it all,” Fergie said ...
