In case you missed "selfie-gate" ... here is what happened. While at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt decided she wanted a "selfie" with British Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama. A photographer caught the action and it went viral. The rest is history.
PENN STATE 68:59 DUQUESNE
It took less than 10 seconds after the opening tip for Penn State guard Tim Frazier to splash a 3-pointer and effectively drain Duquesne’s hometown edge from Consol Energy Center on Wednesday night.
The rest of the way, Frazier deferred. He finished with 11 points and a career-high 13 assists as Penn State (8-3) powered past Duquesne, 68-59, before a crowd of 5,246.
"Here's the great thing about Timmy: he just wants to win,” Penn State coach Pat Chambers said. “That's an unselfish leader who has a great understanding of what he wants out of this year. The kid truly wants to leave a legacy."

Four fish were taken, including a lunker caught with an 11 1/2-foot noodle rod and released by Jim Saccamango of White Oak, during the Post-Gazette's Fish On steelheading trip to Elk Creek Nov. 16.
The educational program included a Lenzner motor coach ride, a tour of the Fairview steelhead hatchery, conversation with Fish and Boat Commission biologist Chuck Murray and a stop at Trout Run nursery waters.
Trout Run Bait & Tackle offered discounts and free egg sacks, and hand-tied steelhead flies were donated by Penn's Woods West Trout Unlimited members. Anglers received handouts from Fish and Boat and the Post-Gazette, and steelhead guides John Nagy and George Douglas contributed books and other educational products.
With coaching from veteran TU steelhead anglers Christian Shane, John G. Hayes, Bob Heil Jr., Ron Milavec and Peter TenEyck, and outdoors editor John Hayes, participating anglers spread out from near the mouth to about a mile above Elk Creek Access Area at Erie Bluffs State Park.

This should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following this awards season, but Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year by league coaches Wednesday (he won the media award last week). Donald took home the Bronko Nagurski Trophy last night, is up for the Lombardi Award tonight and will attend ESPN's College Football Awards show for the Outland Trophy and Bednarik Award tomorrow night (for everyone who has asked, it's my understanding that Donald wrapped up his final exams last week).
Pitt freshman receiver Tyler Boyd was named to the third team, and fellow receiver Devin Street garnered honorable mention (it probably didn't help that Street missed pretty much all of Pitt's final two games with a couple of injuries).
Here are the full teams...
ACC Player of the Year – Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
ACC Offensive Player of the Year – Jameis Winston, QB Florida State

A possibility, according to the always right, never wrong, Internets machine:
This all stems from a Texas-based site called OrangeBloods that said that the Longhorns' top 3 coaching choices are Nick Saban, Urban Meyer and Mike Tomlin.
As it happens, my top three wife choices are Kate Upton, Joan from Mad Men and Padma Lakshmi, so let's see who gets lucky first.
