Pink has never cared what you think. Since she first rose to fame more than a decade ago, she's been one of the more progressive popstars, a sort of feminist punk rock option for anyone coming of age circa Britney Spears. She might have grown up, got married, and had a kid, but she certainly hasn't lost her edge. Over the weekend, after attending a cancer benefit to support a friend, she noticed some social media users criticizing her weight. And, in typically positive Pink fashion, she responded to her body shamers:

Though you wouldn't detect it if you saw me play -- I love golf. One of the most prestigious and beloved tournaments is The Masters, played in Augusta, GA every April. Known as one of four "Major" tournaments, The Master got under way this morning with a field of 97 - hoping to make the cut to play on through the weekend where the winner will be suited with the coveted "green jacket" on Sunday.

Tiger Woods is back in the field. How well will he do? I'll be watching. And you can too with this link: CLICK HERE

Times are tough. The New Orleans Saints team is currently suffering - since the Seahawks acquired their prized tight end Jimmy Graham and they are coming off of another losing season.
Now, one of the former players, presumably a part of the Superbowl Champion Saints team a few years back - is trying to cash in on some very personal memorabilia. A SUPERBOWL RING and an autographed helmet.

Ron Hunter is the coach for the Georgia State basketball team, and he tore his Achilles tendon last Sunday celebrating their conference championship win.  So he had to sit in a rolling chair for their game against Baylor yesterday.  And when his son R.J. won the game with a three-pointer, he started celebrating again . . . and fell OUT of his chair.  Luckily he didn't hurt himself this time.

Want to impress people when you're out drinking for St. Patrick's Day? How about showing them you're the MacGyver of DRUNKS?

There's a YouTube video floating around that shows how to get the cap off a beer bottle using nothing but a sheet of paper. It's an old trick, but if you've never heard about it, here's what you do . . .

1. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom. Then fold it in half long-wise three times, until it's long and thick.  
2. Now fold THAT in the middle, to turn it into a "V" shape.
3. Hold the bottle steady, put the "V" part under the cap, and pop it off.

You might want to practice once before you try to impress the ladies . . . you'll be way cooler if you do it on your first try.

Check out the video. Happy St. Patty's Day -- and remember, drink responsibly and DON'T DRINK & DRIVE! Plan ahead.

Leonard Nimoy, the actor, author and director best known for his portrayal of the ultra-logical character Spock in the TV series Star Trek, has died at the age of 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed to the New York Times that her husband died Friday morning at their Los Angeles home of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy said last year that he had been diagnosed with lung disease and was "doing OK."

Nimoy's poignant last tweet, sent on Feb. 22, reads, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."

"I loved him like a brother," co-star William Shatner said Friday. "We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love."

Co-star George Takei shared his condolences on Facebook Friday afternoon.

"Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard ... I shall miss you in so many, many ways," he wrote.

"Leonard Nimoy truly did live long and prosper. To celebrate his life and work, let us share in some of his best moments as the character we all took into our hearts, Mr. Spock."
