Do your part to keep David Price a Toronto Blue Jay.
A fan site called Any Price For David has sprung up in hopes of convincing free agent pitcher David Price to re-sign with the Blue Jays. The idea is that you add a ‘clause’ to his future contract by offering up something in return; for example, giving David the recipe to your grandmother’s chocolate chip cookies.
Check out the website and add your clause to the contract here.

Spelling Error Gets Woman Busted for Poisoning
Jacqueline Patrick, a 55-year-old British woman, tried to fatally poison her husband not once, but twice, back in 2013 by putting anti-freeze in his wine.
After the second attempt, she handed the ambulance drivers a note that, she claimed, he had written. In it, her 70-year-old husband supposedly asked not to be resuscitated because he wanted to die with “dignerty.” Police, noticing the misspelling, asked Patrick to spell the word “dignity,” and she misspelled it as “dignerty” once again, providing the clue that she forged the note.
Patrick ended up being arrested and, on Monday, sent to jail for 15 years after she pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder.
