1 Bachelor Canada reveal. The Canadian version of The Bachelor franchise debuts this fall, and next Tuesday, May 1, the first ever Canuck bachelor will be revealed.
They are dropping daily hints at BachelorCanada.ca about who the lucky guy will be. Here’s your main hint: It’s not me. I am taken. I know — you’re all devastated.
2 The Windsor Hum. A mysterious, low-frequency rumble dubbed the Windsor Hum has been annoying the heck out of people in Windsor, Ont., for the past couple of years. Apparently, it originates from an industrial site in Michigan, and even our feds are now investigating. There’s a @TheWindsorHum account on Twitter. Minus that hum noise.
3 Triple play. The Toronto Blue Jays turned a triple play in a 4-3 win over Kansas City, their first since 1979. Though it was really their first since 1992, if you count the terrible missed call in Game 3 of the World Series when Kelly Gruber clearly tagged an Atlanta Braves base runner before he reached base. Same thing happened to me in a T-ball game in 1978.
4 Will and Kate’s first anniversary. The world’s most famous couple is celebrating their first anniversary this Sunday. Can you believe nearly 365 days have passed since two billion people watched the royal wedding!? Before you know it, WillKat will be celebrating 10 years of marriage with their three kids, two pets and 1.5 cars. In their palace.
5 They grow up fast. A father from the Netherlands filmed his daughter every week from birth up until age 12, and posted a time-lapse video of her growth, called Portrait of Lotte, on Vimeo. It has gone viral, and said dad has totally raised the daddy bar. Message to soon-to-be dads: Get your video cameras ready. You have a lot of filming to do.
6 Ron Artest. He changed his name to Metta World Peace but the L.A. Laker should consider changing it back to Ron Artest or Metta World Chaos after the absolutely vicious elbow he threw at Oklahoma City’s James Harden in a game on Sunday. The reputation he worked so hard to restore after that incident in 2004 where he climbed into the stands and started a brawl with fans at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Mich. ? Gone.
7 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. If you were to put two of the most self-indulgent, conceited, narcissistic people together in the ultimate exercise in matchmaking egocentrism, you would get this couple. And it has happened. They are an item. But this might not work. See, they are both in love with someone else. Themselves.
8 Ford’s weigh-in cancelled. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who began his Cut the Waist challenge in January, hoping to lose 50 pounds by June, keeps cancelling his weekly weigh-ins. For the third time in a month, he didn’t show up. Either he “chickened out” or was too busy trimming budgets rather than himself.
9 Red Hot Chili Peppers. Next week, they’ll release We Salute You, an EP of classic covers to celebrate their recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, including covers of previous inductees like the Ramones and Neil Young. Doubt Axl Rose would ever do such a thing. He refused to be inducted with his band, Guns N’ Roses. (Un)sweet child.
