A cop in New Jersey delivered a baby on the side of the road in a snowstorm last week.  And firefighters in Wisconsin delivered a baby in a McDonald’s parking lot, also in a snowstorm.  Both babies are doing great.  The McDonald’s kid’s name is Micah, but his parents are calling him “McFlurry”……. More than 200 people in Florida had a “birthday parade” for a woman who just turned 101.  Her name is Valeria Ryan, and she’s a veteran.  She joined the Navy in World War Two, and taught soldiers how to land bombs.  She told a reporter the secret to her longevity is, quote, “Drink all the booze you can drink.”…..And finally……………. 

Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass got a lot of hate after that missed field goal on Sunday.  He even got DEATH THREATS.  But Bills fans are making up for it by donating thousands in his name to a no-kill animal shelter. The Ten Lives Club has a huge photo of Tyler and one of their kittens hanging in the shelter lobby, and they’ve asked fans to donate $22 in recognition of Bass’s No. 2 jersey. The campaign has already raised more than $180,000. In an Instagram post, the shelter said “Tyler doesn’t deserve any of the hate he’s receiving. He’s an excellent football player and an even better person who took the time to help our organization and rescue cats last year. Leave our friend alone.” (Please people, it’s just a game. Act right.)
