This Quarterback Fulfilled a Very Special Childhood Promise to Take His Friend to the Prom

Jun 30, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

When Ben Moser was in the 4th grade, he made a very serious promise to his mom after attending his cousin’s prom walk: When he grew up, he was going to ask his friend Mary Lapkowicz to prom.

Ben and Mary, who has Down syndrome, shared a really special bond in those days, their fourth grade teacher told The Patriot-News —

He watched over her constantly. If she was looking like she wasn’t having fun, he would go over and talk to her. He would pull her in to what ever activity they were doing. He just always watched out for her.

In 6th grade, Mary moved to another district and attended Central Dauphin high school where her father, Tom, teaches math, and Ben remained at Susquehanna.

Jun 30, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Debbie and Shaun Riddle eat at West Side Cafe in Fort Worth, Texas pretty regularly.

They hadn’t stopped by in over a month, however, so they were a little surprised when their server, Kayla Lane, remembered them when they stopped in for a bite to eat recently.

They made small talk, and Kayla asked about their infant daughter Glory, who she recalled seeing during their last visit…

But she didn’t realize that, sadly, Glory had passed away in her sleep from an unknown cause only a few short weeks ago.

And when the grieving parents told her what had happened, she felt terrible, she told CBS:

I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, I made them remember!’ even though it’s going through their minds all day, every day.

Determined to do something for the family to make up for her faux-pas, Kayla did the only thing she could think of: she picked up their check.

36 Kids and Animals Silently Plotting Revenge

Jun 29, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

Oh, sure. Everyone thinks that little kids and adorable furry pets are innocent and couldn’t possibly be thinking about anything other than how they can be good and make you happy.

And by “everyone,” I mean people who have never met a kid or a pet.

Yes, they’re cute. Yes, they’re great most of the time. But don’t be fooled. They are also silently plotting their revenge for early bedtimes, trips to the vet, and being forced to wear ridiculous clothes half of the time.

Do I look amused?

Jun 25, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Like any sane person, Mark Mravic, Assistant Managing Editor of Sports Illustrated thinks that women’s soccer is awesome. But he’d heard that his colleague, Andy Benoit, who covers the NFL for Sports Illustrated disagrees…

Then Andy decided to clarify: it’s not just women’s soccer that isn’t worth his precious time — it’s all women’s sports. Because that’s so much better!

Screen Shot 2015-06-25 at 4.05.04 PM

Well, Andy, Seth Myers and Amy Poehler have a question for you…

Benoit’s tweets have, predictably, since been deleted. But that doesn’t mean the internet has forgotten them…

Jun 25, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

Congrats! You’re engaged to be married and embark on a life together filled with love, companionship, and arguing about who was supposed to take out the trash.

The first thing you should do is have a few professional pictures of you guys taken to start an album about life and love…right?

Apparently a few people had the initial idea right — get some pictures taken — but the route they took might make you wonder why they ever proposed such an awkward arrangement.

Horsing around already.
