Remember when you were a kid, and would throw things at your siblings or friends, and your  mom would say, "Stop throwing things at people before you lose the right to play in a bowl game?" Well, Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown must not have been listening. Brown was suspended from playing in the Alamo Bowl for his role in a snowball fight that turned ugly, the school announced Monday. Oregon plays Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown was among a group of nearly 100 students hitting cars and drivers with snowballs on campus Friday.

Mom: "OK, let's go. Time to try something different - we're going snowshoeing this afternoon. " Teenager 1: "Huh? Why?" Teenager 2: "I'm not walking on waffle feet, no. " Mom: "Great, here we go. " Surprise! Snowshoeing is actually fun. Good, inexpensive, diversionary fun. If you have kids, you've been there too. Despite excellent early-season snow (it was mid-November) and some great mornings boarding and skiing on the half-dozen open lifts at Mammoth (followed by substantial portions of home-cooked meals shoveled into waiting jaws)

We were rewarded with beautiful weather and excellent fishing. We caught and released lots of trout (fly and bubble), had snowball fights and dined on not-so-haute cuisine (just add boiling water). Mike Banks Yorba Linda

Grinning mischievously and clutching a snowball, Nicholas Lazenby, 6, went stalking through a winter wonderland. As his kindergarten classmates climbed atop a three-foot-high mound of snow that had been dumped on the Excelsior Elementary School lawn, Nicholas chose his intended victim, a classmate with his back turned. Moments later, he unleashed the wet, white clump of powder, hitting the other boy squarely on the seat of his blue jeans. "Yeah!"

Hart Coach Rick Scott was hoping last week's win over Quartz Hill would enable his team to take advantage of "the snowball effect" Friday night in the Indians' Foothill League opener with Burbank. The snowball was turned into an avalanche by Hart quarterback Jim Bonds, who ran for two touchdowns and passed for another in Hart's 34-9 victory at Memorial Field in Burbank. "It's starting to roll," said Scott, whose team has scored 67 points in the last two games.

Jurors began deliberating Monday in the Casey Anthony murder trial after hearing prosecutors argue the woman killed her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, because the toddler interrupted her carefree partying and love life. Prosecutors in their rebuttal closing argument earlier Monday said the defense's assertion that Caylee's death was an "accident that snowballed out of control" made no sense. Anthony's attorneys say the girl drowned in the family's pool. They have said Anthony panicked and that her father, a former police officer, decided to make the death look like a homicide by placing duct tape over the child's mouth and dumping the body in some nearby woods.

A young couple, seemingly committed and secure, become anxious that their relationship is falling into a rut. So they decide to give each other one night to have sex with someone else with no complications, bad feelings or questions asked. As explored with sly humor and at times painfully direct candor in "The Freebie," opening Friday in Los Angeles, the idea is simple in conception and extremely complicated in execution. "I just wanted it to feel honest," said director and star Katie Aselton.

The call went out on a website and over Twitter, and hundreds of 20- and 30-somethings, tired of being cooped up, gathered in Washington's northwest quadrant Saturday for a little restless indulgence. Snowball fight! People squealed as they hurled balls of snow across the largely deserted road. Then, a snowball or two slammed into a Hummer. The driver, a plainclothes police detective whom Washington police refused to identify, got out, drew his gun and exchanged angry words with revelers, according to video footage and witnesses.

reporting from new orleans I drive alongside the grassy slope of the Mississippi River levee and turn east at Magazine Street, traveling past Audubon Zoo toward downtown. It's a narrow, bumpy street shaded by giant oaks, their roots upending great chunks of sidewalk. But nobody seems to mind. This is New Orleans. I'm on a quest to find the best snowball in a city filled with stands. Don't mistake a snowball for a snow cone. The former is soft like powder snow, the latter crunchy like hard pack.

Blue Microphones got its start building high-end studio microphones for the recording industry, making a name for itself as a niche player. But niche no more. With a nudge from Apple Inc., the Westlake Village company built a low-cost microphone for use with music recording software. That mic, called the Snowball, has become a hit with aspiring pro musicians and dedicated hobbyists who make demo recordings on their laptops instead of shelling out $50 an hour or more for studio time.

The slumping market for commercial real estate -- viewed by many as the next big shoe to drop on the economy -- now threatens to drag down regional banks as they struggle to collect on loans made against shopping centers and office buildings. Seriously overdue loans against commercial developments have shot up dramatically in recent months, as delinquencies snowball on construction loans and mortgages for office buildings, malls and apartments. That's bad for giants like Bank of America Corp.

A snowball fight between dozens of black party goers and Hasidic students in Brooklyn mushroomed into a bottle-tossing, rock-throwing melee on Martin Luther King Day and Jewish leaders claimed it was a racially motivated attack. There were no reports of serious injuries. Police said they questioned four black youths but made no arrests.

Reece Mastrapa sat at a table in the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday, watching a circus play out around him. There were Santas and Snoopys, Snow White, snakes and soldiers, pirates and rock walls, cotton candy and popcorn -- even a soap-making station, a helicopter and an arcade. The 6-year-old sat in the middle of it all, fiddling with a box of sunglasses, his baseball cap cocked to one side.

It is difficult to imagine better timing for the publication of a Warren Buffett biography, and not just any biography but a nearly 900-page authorized tome. For more than five years, Alice Schroeder, a former securities analyst, spent countless hours with the Sage of Omaha, his family, friends and business associates, all of whom spoke freely, with Buffett's permission.
