    Alex Habay was in his Ford Taurus, stopped at a traffic light in downtown Meadville, Crawford County, yesterday morning, thinking about nothing, idly listening to a radio commercial while on his way to his summer job at the YMCA.

    That's when a 1,500-pound wrecking ball smashed into the rear of his car.

    Just look at the bright side, the kid is no longer driving a Ford.

    I've had a couple vehicles I wished that would have happened to.

    My favorite parts of the story...

    Police said crane operator Robby L. Boring, 28, of Meadville, was injured when he tried to stop the wrecking ball by throwing bricks in front of it.

    He hadn't thought much about it before, but he'd been carrying eight soccer balls in the back seat of his car for a while. He said a police officer told him the balls likely lessened the impact of the wrecking ball, saving him from more severe injuries.

    Are we trying to merge the Antoine Walker thread with this one somehow?

    FORD -- Fix or repair daily.

    I can only imagine what's next for that car.

    Soccer balls helped prevent more serious injury, huh? What will a couple hundred scuffed Titleists in the trunk of my Taurus do for me?
  12. who does that song, "You had a bad day?"

    catastrophically wretched song

    played, naturally, constantly at my gym, along with vomit-inducing pieces of bat guano by Hoobastank, John Mayer, Avril Lavigne and Maroon 5
