Tim Tebow Inspires On "The Tonight Show"
Tim Tebow visited Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" to promote his recent book "Shaken." In typical Tebow fashion, the interview brought tears and inspiration to many who didn't know they needed it. He has been the center of scrutiny for many sports enthusiasts, myself included, who question his ability to succeed in MLB baseball. The problem with our criticism is that Tebow doesn't keep score the way the rest of us do.
Where many of us see anything less than ultimate success as failure, Tebow just wants to have fun and pursue his dreams. He joked about his meager salary as a minor league baseball player and told stories about sleeping on the floor during a twelve-hour bus ride. His sports lifestyle is not glamorous, but he loves it.
Tebow also addressed the danger of living by what other people define as success. You can't please everyone in the comment section. You can't trust the comment section either. Tebow lives according to the advice and encouragement of the people who he knows and loves and encouraged Fallon's audience to do the same.
The interview ended with an impromptu prom dance. Tebow, apparently, never went to prom. He was always too busy with sports. So, Tebow created Night to Shine, a worldwide prom for people with special needs. One attendee invited Tim to be her prom date. He couldn't make the event, so he invited her to The Tonight Show, bought her a corsage, and asked her for a dance.

Garth Brooks might be the most generous superstar on the planet. He also loves being a dad as much as loves being the highest-selling individual musical artist of all-time. And if you ever doubted that fact, just check out what he did during a recent show.
Brooks helped a happy couple with their gender reveal on stage, but before doing so he offered up a lot of sweet advice, "The only thing better than one is 50 — as many as you can afford. It's awesome. You'll see. Once they give you that baby, you'll go 'I'll take 100 more of these, man.'"
I love the South-- its lakes, its river, its natural beauty, and even its abandoned buildings, churches, and forgotten plantations. There's something fascinating about seeing these man-made places that nature has reclaimed. The glory days of these places are long since gone, leaving only overgrown ruins, but it's that hint of glory that only adds to the mystery and makes you want to see these places for yourself.

I've never understood children's toys that simulate the banality of adult life. I've seen toy vacuums, toy lawn mowers, and little kitchenettes. Why are we so interested in pretend chores as kids?
Mattel has taken things a step further with their newest Barbie playset. This Barbie comes with a cute little dog that winds up and walks on release. And better yet, every few steps it's drops out little brown tic tac shaped turds. How fun! They've really distilled the most joyous moments of dog-ownership, haven't they? The dog doesn't bark, or wag its little tail, or I don't know, lick Barbie's face when she gets home. It poops. Then Barbie uses her pooper-scooper to clean it up.
