Check out this video of Vernon, a sophomore at Tulare Union High School in California, who shattered a backboard at a recent high school basketball game (in the backboard's defense, it looked a decade or so past its prime). It's become an Internet sensation. I found it on The Big Lead , so allow me to give a hit tip to them.

Two beloved animated figures from the 1960s and 1970s - a good-natured but clueless boy and his drawling dog - are returning to national television. Davey and Goliath's Snowboard Christmas will air on the Hallmark Channel at noon Sunday and Dec. 26. The original stop-action Sunday-morning series, developed and owned by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, was designed to teach values to children in 15-minute segments. In the first new cartoon in 30 years, Davey and Goliath takes an ecumenical turn, with the introduction of a Jewish boy and a Muslim girl to the cast.

Coca-Cola's share increased 0.6 percentage points to 44.3 percent of the $62.9 billion soft-drink market, according to a joint study by Beverage Digest and analyst John Maxwell, who also is a contributing editor for the newsletter. PepsiCo Inc., the world's second-biggest soda maker, slipped 0.2 points.
