So Yankees Manager Joe Girardi was just minding his own business, giving a news conference Wednesday night after his team lost to the Chicago, completing a sweep by the White Sox. He's answering a reporter's question when in the distance he hears "Yankees swept? Yes!" But he ignores it, and continues answering, when he starts to hear it again.

Rick Perry took another shot at Mitt Romney's offer of a $10,000 bet, but the Texas governor found himself under fire himself Sunday, heckled at a campaign stop over anti-gay bias, including by a man identifying himself as a Marine veteran from the Iraq war. The heckling followed Perry's brief remarks to Iowa voters at a coffee shop in downtown Ames. "Why are you demonizing gay and lesbian people?" shouted one heckler. "Why can't gays compete in the military?" chimed in Jason Arment, 24, an English major at nearby Iowa State University.
