HAVING A BALL

Fried, barbecued, stuffed, or just ground up and sautéed.

Those were the choices off today's Cutting Room Floor at the 16th annual mountain oyster fry in Virginia City, Nevada outside Reno.

Servers at five booths dispensed about 130 pounds of "fried oysters," or sheep testicles.

Visitors gave mixed reviews to the tiny morsels.

Among other things, the versatile meat has been used in tacos and sloppy Joes.

One fan said, "We try to get families from all over to try them. It's just another tender meat."

DEAD AIR

A first-class passenger on a flight from Delhi to London awoke to find the corpse of a woman who had died in the economy cabin being placed in a seat next to him.

The economy section on the British Airways flight was full, and the cabin crew needed to move the woman and her grieving family out of coach to give them some privacy.

The first class passenger said, "I didn't have a clue what was going on. The stewards just plunked the body down without saying a thing."

British Airways said in a statement that about 10 passengers die each year in flight.

GRAND PARENTS

When most people hit their 70's, they hope to enjoy retirement by traveling and just enjoying the feeling of not being tied down.

Well one couple in their 70's in Montana had a different idea.

They adopted the woman's five great-grandchildren, four girls and a boy... ages 3 to 8.

71 year old Virginia Crawford said, "At my age, I'm on my knees to God every day asking, 'Please give me the energy for another day."

Child-welfare officials told her the children were neglected and they would be placed in a foster home. She offered to take them instead.

TRIPLE PLAY

And you don't see this everyday... let alone in spring training... a triple play.

The Angels pulled it off against the Rockies.

It started with the strike out... then Todd Walker gets tagged out in a rundown between first and second.

Then Brian Giles gets thrown out trying to go to third.

Not your usual triple play... but not too unusual for the Angels... this is their second one of the spring.
