Vince Neil Hits The Ice

Vince Neil Hits The Ice - Vince Neil is probably the most recognizable name in the cast of Skating With the Stars. To be honest, I was actually kind of shocked to see him on the show, but then I was even a little more shocked to find out that as a kid Vince took figure skating lessons. Can you imagine if Mötley Crüe didn’t make it and we had Vince Neil pro figure skater?
What more can I say about Vince Neil that hasn’t already been said? He is a legend in the music industry and is the front man for one of the biggest, most successful bands in the world. He had lived a wild, crazy life that has run the gambit from seeing him play in front of 100,000 fans to facing years in jail for vehicular manslaughter. In that case Neil along with Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas Dingley and other were both drunk, got into Neil’s Pantera and drove to liquor store for more booze. On the way there Neil lost control of the car and hit an oncoming car. The passengers in the other two cars were hurt and one had brain damage. Dingley was killed. Neil had a blood alcohol level of 0.17, well over the legal limit. After the trial and verdict Neil was sentenced to 90 days in jail, $2.6 million in restitution to the victims in the crash and 200 hours of community service.

Vince Neil has seen the good times and the bad. If there is one thing that could be said about Neil it is that he is known to have a temper. His fights with the other members of the band are things of legend. He supposedly attacked a prostitute in Nevada. He was arrested for attacking a music producer and he was arrested and accused of knocking out an employee at the nightclub Gilley’s Dallas after an argument over sound levels during concert. He is a hot head, but is also known to be a very cool guy. I wonder which we will get on the show.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
