DOG IN STOLEN TRUCK FOUND, RETURNED TO OWNER

Here’s your feel-good story of the day: a dog that was in a stolen truck near Winston-Salem was found by an unemployed woman, who returned the pup to its owner.

My take: I over-simplified the story — so go check it out. But it does my heart good to know there ARE still good folks out there. Pay it forward, indeed.

BLACKBERRY SERVICES DOWN, BUT SLOWLY RETURNING

Blackberry owners the world over have been frustrated as their POS have been suffering through service interruptions for up to four days.

My take: This might very well be the death blow for the outdated Blackberries — but never fear, the iPhone 4S is on sale!

RED SOX SELF-DESTRUCTION

In news that brings a smile to Heelatious’ face, the Boston Red Sox have literally self-destructed over the past couple of months. Here’s a well-written and informative column by ESPN’s Howard Bryant on the sorry state of Red Sox baseball.

My take: It amazes me how a franchise can’t stay successful because of ridiculous egos. Need more examples? The Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s and the L.A. Lakers of the early 2000s immediately come to mind.

I guess winning that ring just ain’t enough, eh?
