Thursday 5-29-14 Recap!
It was a busy day today!
We got a call from THE CAPTAIN, Jason Varitek, to talk about all the shenanigans that happened at last night's 10-year celebration of the '04 World Series victory.
Guy Fieri popped in because he is in town to shoot "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."
Lenny Clarke stopped by with Kenny Casey of the Dropkick Murphys, comedian Tony V, actor Kevin "Chappy" Chapman, and Dan Magoon, Executive Director at Mass Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund. There is a great event coming up on June 6th: Fenway For The Fallen Celebrity Softball Tournament.

There's a reason bacon smells so yummy when it cooks. SCIENCE!
We also covered these stories:
On May 18th, a guy wearing a mask robbed a Dunkin' Donuts at knifepoint in Louisville, Kentucky. And because of the mask, the employees weren't able to give much of a description to police. But then on Saturday, the place got held up again by the same guy. And for some reason he skipped the whole disguise thing this time. And it was even dumber than it sounds, because it turns out he's a 36-year-old named Luke Payne. And every one of the employees was able to I.D. him . . . because he worked there, and was robbing his own Dunkin' Donuts store. Police arrested him on Sunday. He's charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, and also had an outstanding warrant.
Justin Bieber may have hooked up with Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima at the Cannes Film Festival last Tuesday. A source says he hit her up pretty hard at a club, where they ended up dancing, flirting . . . and leaving together at 5:00 A.M. He even posted a picture of them together on Instagram. Adriana and former NBA star Marko Jaric announced their separation earlier this month. She's 32, which means she's 12 years older than Justin, who's 20. For the record, another source claims Justin TRIED to hit on Adriana and jump in with her crew when she left the club, but she DENIED him. Meanwhile, Justin was hanging out with 16-year-old Kylie Jenner on Tuesday night, and they both posted pictures on social media to prove it. We don't know if they're doing anything, but if they are, that punk had better watch his step. The age of consent in California is 18. But Justin may have trouble remembering that, since the age of consent is only 16 in Canada. They're probably just friends, though, because Kylie's been rumored to be dating Justin's buddy JADEN SMITH for quite some time. It's never really been officially confirmed, but Kylie did bring Jaden to KIM KARDASHIAN'S wedding, and they were supposedly caught MAKING OUT there . . . although Kylie denied it on Twitter.
And we ran out of time for this one, but it rates a mention:
We can all only dream of being THIS badass when we're pushing 90. This little old lady is tougher than any of us NOW. 89-year-old Miyo Koba owns a convenience store in Moses Lake, Washington . . . and has owned it for 60 years. She and her husband used to run it together . . . but since he died, she's run it by herself. She was working there on Sunday when a guy came in and demanded that she open up the register and give him the cash. She refused to do it . . . and he pushed her down. Then he pulled out a sword. She says it was a, quote, "little sword" . . . the cops say it was three feet long. So Miyo picked up a golf club . . . and got into a sword-versus-golf club joust with this guy. She managed to hit him in the legs . . . that spooked him, so he grabbed the cash register and ran off. He wound up dropping the register as he tried to get away, though . . . and it still had all the cash in it. The cops are searching for him. As for Miyo, even though she's 89 years old and maybe 125 pounds, she says, quote, "I didn't feel threatened. It just probably made me a little more brave."
