Drunkenly Singing Bohemian Rhapsody, Top Reasons You Don't Care About the BCS, & Frozen Al Roker

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you had a better New Year’s Day than Jacob Cox-Brown.
I know I SHOULDN'T be shocked by this . . . teenagers put EVERYTHING on Facebook and seem to have NO wisdom on what they shouldn't share with the world. But Facebook posts like this STILL catch me off guard.
Around 1:00 A.M. on New Year's Day, 18-year-old Jacob Cox-Brown of Astoria, Oregon was driving DRUNK. He sideswiped two parked cars, fled the scene, and went home. At which point, of course, he decided to post about it on Facebook. He wrote, quote, "Drivin' drunk . . . classic. [Winking face]. But to whoever's vehicle I hit I am sorry."
One of his Facebook friends saw that and forwarded it to the cops. They arrested him later that day on two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver. He wasn't charged with drunk driving because the Facebook post isn't enough evidence to prove he was legally drunk at the time. (???)
This reminds me of the AMAZING video in which a drunken guy sings ALL of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody while being driven to the big house. When the guy went to court recently, he decided to act as his own lawyer . . . and wore a Viking helmet. He ended up being fined $1,400 for impaired driving, and lost his license for a year.
I wonder if he will be watching the BCS Championship game tonight with a couple of brewskis?
Yes, the highly-anticipated matchup between #1 ranked Notre Dame and #2 ranked Alabama goes down tonight in Miami. See why you couldn't care less with the Top Reasons You Won't Be Watching the BCS Championship Game.
