For example, Vaughn Champion was a two-time all-conference pick and two-time team MVP at Absegami High in Galloway. But when visitors stop by the house, the first home video his dad pulls out is the one featuring Mike Trout. "We've shown it to quite a few people," Champion says. In it, Champion, then a freshman second baseman, fields Trout's one-hop smash to start a double play - the only ground-ball double play Trout hit into in four seasons at Millville High.

An artist in Kansas is claiming censorship over his unflattering depiction of Gov. Sam Brownback. David Loewenstein wrote on his personal blog that his print showing the politician as a demonic figure featuring the words "Reject Brownback" was taken down from a Topeka cafe. Brownback, a Republican, has also served as a U.S. representative and senator from Kansas. He was elected governor in 2010. Brownback received national attention last year when he eliminated the Kansas Arts Commission, making Kansas the first state to completely do away with arts funding. After intense pressure from arts advocates, Brownback somewhat reversed his decision by restoring some arts funding.

In conference hotels, parties and at the conference itself, random people could be spotted wearing the ultimate must-have-but-incredibly-scarce gadget. On Wednesday, Google's Sergey Brin took to the stage at TED 2013 wearing his pair to discuss his, ahem, vision for Google Glass. His appearance came on the day when applications were d ue in a contest to win the right to buy one of the $1,500 devices.
