Tough loss, Bruins fans. It's a good thing our Mayor didn't bet something foolish, like making a bet over flying a flag... oh, wait...

You’ve likely seen this a million times since yesterday, but here’s another reason cats rule. I freaking LOVE this video. Four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was playing on his bike in his front yard in Bakersfield, California on Tuesday. And out of nowhere, the neighbor's dog attacked him, latched onto his leg, and pulled him off the bike. But before it could get a lot worse, Jeremy was rescued . . . by Tara, the family cat. She came running over, gave the dog a full-body check, chased it off, then came back to check on Jeremy. By then Jeremy's mom was there too. Jeremy needed a bunch of stitches, but he's okay. The dog has a history of attacks, so it'll have to be put down.
If you need to know where to buy pot, don't call the cops. No, really. Don't A guy in Oregon just called the police a few weeks ago to find out where he could score some marijuana. Police were dispatched to his home, but he was not arrested. Check out the 911 call at this link.
Terry McGlade of Zanesville, Ohio is a Marine who served two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Several years ago, he was injured by a roadside bomb and had to end his service. And since then, he's suffered from PTSD and seizures. So two years ago, he got a service dog named Major, who's trained to sense when Terry's in trouble. But he wasn't trained to do this. Recently, Terry started having a pretty serious seizure, and wasn't able to call for help. But the dog realized what was happening, and while Terry was on the ground, it started pawing at the pocket Terry had his cell phone in. Eventually it managed to get the phone out. And luckily Terry had it set up to call 911 with a push of a button. Because Major started chewing and stepping on it, and made several calls to 911. Then he ran outside, sat on the curb, and waited for the ambulance. And when it got there, he led them straight to Terry. Terry says he had to get a new phone afterward, because the other one was covered in bite marks. But he's not sure what would have happened if Major hadn't called for help. And now he's entered him in something called the "Hero Dog Awards". You can vote at HeroDogAwards.org.
It seems like people in the news never attack each other over fine craft beers. It's always the cheapest beer that gets people going. 38-year-old Daniel Trent of Ocala, Florida was drinking with his 56-year-old neighbor Mark Durham on Monday . . . and drinking hard. They bought a 24-pack of Natural Ice, and when they finished it, they bought an 18-pack. After they put down the first 41 cans of Natty Ice, they got into an argument over who was going to get the last can. An argument that turned really ugly. Mark . . . the older neighbor guy, allegedly pulled a knife. But Daniel says he wrestled it away . . . and stabbed Mark with his own knife. Only Mark ended up DYING from the wound. Daniel was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He's claiming self-defense.
