A video is going viral of a squirrel running around Citizens Bank Park and entering the Phillies dugout, causing players to scramble. Well, makes sense. The squirrel was more frightening than anyone in the Philadelphia lineup.
A German man has posted a video after a breakup showing him sawing all their communal property in half with a power saw, including a teddy bear and a pickup truck. Wonder how many calls he’s gotten to option his story for a country song?
