Stories that caught my eye

To see Bill Clinton get heckled (sort of) and his response (and explanation of DADT and DOMA) visit Bham Gay community Examiner.

Pitino story gets weirder every day Why can't guys keep their pants zipped up? Really. Anyone?

Rickwood plan for museum honoring Birmingham's baseball heritage This is my favorite story of the day. I love Rickwood field, used to go there as a kid. Haven't been back in decades, but this is big.

Some Negro league baseball players were in the front row at a symbolic groundbreaking that was held outside of historic Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Ala., Thurs., Aug. 13, 2009 for a baseball museum dedicated to the city's baseball heritage. The museum will feature the history of the former Negro League as well as that of the Southern League. Both the Birmingham Barons and the Black Barons played at Rickwood. The City Council in May approved spending $7.5 million to restore the century-old ballpark and build the museum. The Birmingham News/Bernard Troncale).
