Kate William Holiday Apart

Kate William Holiday Apart - According to NBC's Today Show, the "it" couple of the moment, Prince William and Catherine Middleton, spent Christmas apart this year. As YA Pop Culture let you know before the holiday, the newly engaged couple, who will have the world's attention upon them when they marry in a public ceremony this spring, had different plans for their last Christmas as unmarried young adults.

According to Robert Jobson of News of the World, reporting on NBC's Today Show, the couple spent Christmas Eve together at Prince Charles's country home, Highgrove.

Then Prince William volunteered to work on Christmas Day in his job as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF. The RAF, Mr. Jobson said, likes to give holiday time off to men and women with families and encourages single adults to work in their stead.

Catherine Middleton went to her parents' home when she spent Christmas Day with her family "for the final time," according to Mr. Jobson, in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Single people have families and friends to visit on the holidays too. I'm single, and I wouldn't volunteer to work the holiday, and would be offended if the reason for the request was that I wasn't married and haven't bred.

Instead of targeting people based on maritial status, how about asking people of other religions to volunteer? The Christians in turn could work on holidays celebrated by Jews, Muslims, etc.

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.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, 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.

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.
