YANKEES-TEBOW BOOED

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York's a tough town. Just ask new Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. The backup Q-B was booed at Yankee Stadium last night, during the game with the Los Angeles Angles. He was shown on the giant video screen wearing a Yankess cap. But the former Denver Broncos sensation got his share of Bronx cheers in the Bronx.

CAVALIERS-MASCOT

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Moondog the mascot took one for the team. The Cleveland Cavaliers Moondog was decked during the game with the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night. He was taken to a hospital to be checked out for an eye injury. But Moondog was back on the court last night for Cleveland's game against Orlando. It was Indiana's David West who accidentally hit Moondog. West apologized and sent the mascot a jersey and a pair of basketball shoes to make amends.

PROVOCATIVE PROM DANCING

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Keep it clean. That's the order to some Wisconsin students heading to the prom. The students are being required to sign a code of conduct that bans dirty dancing. Students from three high schools in the Wausau area must sign the document before they can buy prom tickets. Associate Principal Joe Svitak says the move is prompted by the popularity of "grinding" during dances at his school, East Wausau High. One student tells a local paper (Wausau Daily Herald) the code is a good idea. But another doubts it will be effective.

MARRIED 83 YEARS

PARIS, Texas (AP) -- Their secret is out -- after more than 83 years. Eunice and Lloyd Ford eloped one night in April of 1929. Now, 102- and 100-years-old, the Fords recently celebrated their 83rd anniversary. So, what's the secret to their long and happy marriage? They say they never fight. The Fords tell a Texas paper (Paris News) they also eat fresh produce from their garden and get plenty of rest.

WORLD WAR II GUN

LEWES, Del. (AP) -- They're calling in the big guns -- or make that one really big gun. A cannon 66-feet-long is making its way to a Delaware state park on the Atlantic coast. It's the type of weapon that used to be on battleships and also at shore gun emplacements. The giant cannon will be placed at what was Fort Miles, which protected the mid-Atlantic area during World War II. The cannon began its journey at a Norfolk, Virginia, naval yard. It's being transported up the coast by barge and rail. The unveiling at the Delaware park is set for April 28th.
