    Sun-Times: Famed movie critic Roger Ebert dies

    Roger Ebert changed the way we watched movies, and with the slight movement of this thumb, he could make or break multi-million dollar films.

    Only 2 days of announcing to the worlds that he was once again battling cancer, he passed away in Chicago. He died Thursday at the age of 70.

    Ebert was an American icon and a brilliant award-winning writer and was arguably better known and more celebrated than most of the actors in the movies he reviewed.

    In 1975, he became the first movie reviewer to get the Pulitzer Prize for criticism.

    Ebert was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2002 and later had surgery for cancer of the salivary gland. He lost his chin and his ability to speak, but he never stopped doing the thing he loved. Not until the very end.

    Some Rutgers faculty call for school president's ouster

    More faculty members at Rutgers University in New Jersey are calling for additional firings as a result of the video that surfaced of the men's basketball coach shoving and berating players with gay slurs.

    After coach Mike Rice was fired Wednesday, more than 50 faculty members have signed a letter calling for the dismissal of Athletic Director Tim Pernetti. They also want Rutger's President Robert Barchi to explain why he didn't fire Rice immediately after learning of the video in December.

    Meanwhile, the number of professors signing a separate letter demanding Barchi step down has more than doubled to at least 28.

    Blue Jays fan's wild reaction after catching a bat that flies into the crowd

    As soon as the weather catches up, we will be a lot happier that baseball season has started. We found this funny video that a lot of people are talking about.

    It happened during a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians. A bat went flying into the stands, but no one was hurt. Instead a fan grabbed the bat and started taunting the Indians.

    The fan eventually gave up the bat to officials in exchange for 30 seconds of fame.

    Watch two 90-year-old men run the 100-meter dash

    It might not have even been close to being the fastest 100 meter dash ever, but the race is still pretty impressive.

    Two men born in 1918 were at an event in Spain that was held for veterans. They decided to show they still had some pep in their step by racing each other.

    One of the men got off to a great start, but the other closed on him with some impressive speed

    The video has been viewed 2.5 million times.
