Kings Island, an Ohio amusement park, doesn't get the headlines and attention of Disneyland and Disney World, but for a shining moment in 1973 it was the center of the pop culture universe. Why? Because those lovable Brady kids from "The Brady Bunch" traveled to Ohio in an episode of the show for a romp through the park, attempting to find misplaced plans for a park addition. This weekend, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the episode, three of the Brady kids, actors Christopher Knight, Susan Olsen and Barry Williams, reunited at the park, located in Mason, Ohio.

Tom Brady may seem to have it all -- Super Bowl rings, a supermodel wife, a house with a moat -- but he's really just a regular guy, like you and me. You know, the kind of who appreciates the little things in life ... like winning a reported $25,000 at the Kentucky Derby. OK, so 25 grand may not qualify as a "little thing" to most of us regular guys -- heck, we don't even have the spare $4,700 Brady is said to have bet on Orb to win the big race. But it's chump change for someone who has a $60-million contract to play quarterback for the New England Patriots.

Animal Planet needs to get its cameras trained on the Burrill brothers, Casey and Brady , at Valencia West Ranch High. They are quickly becoming adept at capturing and eradicating rattlesnakes. Call them "Rattlesnakebusters. " Since August, 11 rattlesnakes have been found on or near the West Ranch baseball diamond and sent to rattlesnake heaven. The diamond is located near a hill that's probably a nice home to lots of rattlesnakes. Coach Casey Burrill and his brother, Brady, the top assistant, have been the primary trackers of rattlesnake intruders.

In its landmark 1963 decision in Brady vs. Maryland, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors are required to provide defendants with any information that may help prove their innocence or favorably change the outcome of their trials. That decision recognized that an individual's right to a fair trial is undermined if prosecutors withhold exculpatory evidence. But half a century later, some prosecutors still don't get it. In some cases, overzealous district attorneys willfully fail to comply with their Brady obligations, resulting in egregious miscarriages of justice.

I wish I was Tom Brady. Not because he has movie-star looks, a supermodel wife and three Super Bowl rings. He has a moat. That's right, a moat. How cool is that? Oh, and it just happens to surround the new $20-million, 22,000-square-foot mansion Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen have built in Brentwood, which we peasants can actually view in the video below from the Detroit Free Press. I'm not sure if the moat has alligators or piranhas swimming in it. Probably. The lavish property also includes a gigantic pool, so there's no need to splash around in the moat (as tempting as that might be)

"I told him -- you know, we talked," Reed told radio station WJZ in Baltimore. "We talked actually not too long ago; we talked on the phone.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The Super Bowl will host two teams of destiny, but only one of them ended Sunday by wearing that destiny on its head like a lampshade and blowing through it like a party horn. The Baltimore Ravens' 28-13 victory over the New England Patriots was almost as entertaining as their postgame march to the locker room, the giant men bouncing through a crowded Gillette Stadium tunnel loudly laughing and cursing and praying, sometimes all in the same hoarse breath.
