MINNEAPOLIS - An annual Major League Baseball undertaking to provide exposure and money to cancer-awareness charities became embroiled in a bit of a controversy Friday, with an Oriole being one of the players inadvertently involved. On Sunday, as part of its Mother's Day celebration, participating players will wear and use pink equipment - to bring more awareness to breast cancer issues - as they have since 2006. The items will then be auctioned off with proceeds going to charities including Susan G. Komen For The Cure, which has championed breast cancer research for decades.

After weeks of cringe-worthy dates and melodramatic professions of love, "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman is down to her final two. Season 10 of the hit ABC show has found its protagonist, love-hungry assistant district attorney Andi, circumnavigate a sea of mostly white, 30-year old men with chiseled bodies to finally find herself in the scenic Dominican Republic with her final two, Josh and Nick. In last night's episode, Andi painfully let go of Chris, the farmer, just as he saw the light at the end of the tunnel that is the “Fantasy Suite," the show's PG-rated way of telling its audience that months of uncomfortable sexual tension will be put to rest.

"The Jerry Springer Show": Jerry reunites "baseball's favorite sluggers" and "the fans who refused to give their home run balls back." A melee breaks out on stage when Philip Ozersky tells Mark McGwire that if he had just said "the magic word," he never would have sold the ball. The show's security staff, aided by the entire Illinois National Guard, finally pry McGwire off Ozersky, whose neck looks remarkably like the handle of a Louisville Slugger.
