The football team at Marine City High School in Michigan won the Division 4 state championship at Detroit's Ford Field on Friday. But the reason people are talking about it is because they did it with a FEMALE kicker, a 5-foot-2 junior named Olivia Viney. She's a star on their girls' soccer team, but she also played the entire season as the football team's starting kicker. She kicked seven extra points in Friday's game, and Marine City won 49 to 35. She also became the first female ever to score points in a high school football championship in Michigan. She was asked recently about how the other players on the team have treated her, and said, quote, "Never in my two years of doing this have I ever heard anything bad, it's like having a huge team of big brothers out there." Olivia also set a new school record this season by successfully kicking 61 extra points with only four misses. And since she's a junior, she'll be back next season trying to TOP that record.

Back in the day, there was always a chance a company Christmas party could devolve into PURE DEBAUCHERY, coworkers getting-it-on in supply closets, vomiting on the boss, Xeroxing their genitalia, all that good stuff. And now it's ruined. Thanks a lot, FACEBOOK. According to a new survey, 80% of people say they've toned down any potential wildness or drunkenness at company holiday parties, because they're afraid the photos will wind up on Facebook. That being said, 40% of people say FREE BOOZE is the key to a good office Christmas party.

26-year-old Jeana Marie Smart got into a fender bender outside Fargo, North Dakota on Sunday. And police arrested her when they realized she had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on drug charges. But after they took her to jail, a cop noticed blood in the back of his squad car. Jeana told him it was her time of the month. But not long after that, they noticed MORE blood on her leg so she fessed up to the REAL reason. It turns out Jeana had hidden a CRACK PIPE in her nether region and it SHATTERED. She was taken to a hospital where doctors removed several pieces of broken glass. And she was also hiding a capped SYRINGE up there. She was charged for paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, and she's due in court January 3rd.

There's a Japanese tire commercial that's getting some love online because of how SCARY it is. I won't ruin it for you, but there's really just ONE scary part. They even put a HEALTH WARNING at the beginning.
On Tuesday night, 20-year-old Dustin Felton of Wilmington, North Carolina was arrested two times. And while both arrests were stupid, the second one was TRULY stupid. Around 9:00 P.M., Dustin was trespassing near a public housing complex, and some cops told him to leave. When he got in his car, he peeled out and sped off. So the cops pulled him over and arrested him for trespassing and reckless driving. He got out of jail around midnight on a $2,500 bond. Then, around 2:00 A.M., the police got a call about a man smashing up an SUV. When they got there, the SUV owner told them Dustin was the one who did it and he knew because when Dustin ran away from the scene, he'd dropped his RELEASE PAPERS from jail earlier that night. So Dustin was arrested again. This time his bond was set at $22,000, so he's still in jail. The police believe he also might be linked to ANOTHER crime from that night, smashing two windows on a woman's house and her car windshield. They found his footprint at the scene.

It's not clear exactly where this happened, but it's blowing up online. A little kid in the first grade lost his wallet at a Walmart recently. But he got it back in the mail, along with a letter from SANTA. The package even had a return address for the NORTH POLE. In the letter, "Santa" talked about how his elves have been working extra hard on the kid's gift this year. Then at the bottom, it said, quote, "While I was making sure you and other girls and boys were being good at Walmart, I found your wallet and thought you would like it back. Love, Santa." And the person who posted the letter also wanted people to know that, quote, "Santa is real and all around us." And they challenged OTHER people to carry out a random act of kindness this year.

The end of the year marks a lot of end of the year traditions, but one of my favorites is the annual mashup of the year's biggest songs by DJ Earworm. He just released the one for this year, enjoy!
Rest easy, good people. A VERY DANGEROUS CRIMINAL has been taken off the streets. 46-year-old Juvencio "Vince" Adame of San Diego, California was just arrested and charged with a FELONY for pruning his shrubs. Turns out that some of the shrubs he trimmed are on CITY PROPERTY next to his house. He says he trimmed them because homeless people were using them as a way to hide out and leave their litter. He's facing a charge of defacement, damage, and destruction in excess of $400. He could be looking at one year in prison or a fine of up to $10,000 and, possibly worst of all, a felony conviction on his record. One of his neighbors said it's a huge waste of taxpayer money to prosecute Vince for doing something the city should've been doing. Quote, "It's not his job, it's the city's job. Then they do this ridiculous thing. It's mind boggling."
