Yes, it's Friday!

Good morning!

It must have been one of those weeks for everyone.   #TGIF, Today is Friday, Finally Friday and #HappyFriday are all trending this morning on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the top trending topic on Yahoo! is the Bikini Basketball League.   Yes, there is such a thing.   The league launched its website, declaring the league begins in 36 days.

The teams include the New York Knockouts, Chicago Desire, Atlanta Fleet Angels, Orlando LadyCats, Miami Spice, Los Angeles Ice and Hollywood Hotties.   The league even has a Twitter account @BikiniBall.

Yes, it is Friday.

It really was one of those weeks for Erin Moran, former child star who played Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days.   Moran, now 51, is homeless, bouncing from motel to motel, after getting booted from her trailer park home in Indiana, according to RadarOnline.com.  The website reports that her mother-in-law kicked her and her husband out of the trailer home because of their "hard-partying ways."   Back in June, reports surfaced that Moran and her husband lost their California home to foreclosure.

The actor Herbert Lom has died at the age of 95.   He will be best remembered as the frustrated boss of Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies.   The Czech-born actor played in various movies over the years.   He had fled Czechoslovakia for London just before the Nazis invaded in 1939.   His parents survived the invasion, but his girlfriend at the time was killed in a concentration camp.   Lom found success on stage in London, and eventually moved to Hollywood where he found more success in movies such as The Seventh Veil with James Mason in 1945 and Night and the City in 1950.    He was also an author, writing two historical novels: "Enter a Spy: The Double Life of Christopher Marlowe" and "Dr. Guillotine: The Eccentric Exploits of an Early Scientist."

Also lots of buzz this morning about an actor in the series Sons of Anarchy.  Johnny Lewis allegedly killed his landlady, dismembered her cat and jumped off a roof to his death in Los Angeles.   He was only 28.   Lewis was once romantically involved with singer Katy Perry, but his life had been in a downward spiral according to multiple reports.   Police were investigating whether his rampage may have been fueled by a new synthetic drug called Smiles.

Singer Ke$ha has announced that she has been romantically involved with a ghost.   She told Ryan Seacrest that her song "Supernatural" is about her "experiences with the supernatural, but in a sexy way.  I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural…  I don't know his name.  He was a ghost!  I'm very open to it."  Right.  Her new album Warrior is due out on December 4.

Then we have a compilation of the world's smallest dunker.  Porter Maberry from Grand Rapis, Michigan may only stand 5'5" but boy can he jump!

 

Speaking of amazing, check out this long shot soccer goal.
