* Only three more games left in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. That means we only have to see that commercial where the guys are riding around in the convertible with ski masks on another 927 times.
* Breaking news: North Korea tried to take the Easter Bunny hostage. Fortunately, the Easter Bunny was able to overpower the North Korean military.
* Twitter played an April Fools' Day joke on its users. Ha, I knew there was an explanation for that tweet that didn't libel anyone and was grammatically correct.
* In his Easter message to America, President Obama called for slowing down and spending some quiet moments in reflection. In a sign of the times, as Obama was delivering the message, Republicans pelted him with dyed eggs.
* On Easter, Michelle Obama wore the same floral-print dress she wore in June when George and Laura Bush visited the White House. Forget government furloughs, closing national parks and shutting air-traffic control towers. When Mrs. Obama is forced to recycle a dress, the tragic impact of the sequester cuts really hits home.
* On Saturday, President Obama played golf for the first time since sequester cuts kicked in March 1. Obama felt he had a good round even though he barely hit his ball through the windmill.
* Obama also attended the Syracuse-Marquette NCAA tournament game. He came away impressed with Syracuse – he's never seen anyone with a tougher defense than the U.S. military.
* According to a CNN poll, if the 2016 presidential election were held tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would win. Then CNN immediately filed papers to hold the 2016 election tomorrow.
* A kid made a video asking supermodel Kate Upton to his prom. This is not to be confused with the video from Brent Musburger asking Katherine Webb to Polka Night at the Elks Lodge.
* There was a new Easter treat this year – a chocolate egg with a toy inside. We have a winner in the “Worst Idea Ever” contest.
* Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus missed a game after suffering sensitivity to his bicep after getting a new tattoo. These professional athletes have to decide what's more important, preseason games or their tat ... no, on second thought, that's not a good idea.
* Tom Brady's new mansion reportedly includes a moat. It's the only way to keep Bill Belichick from dropping by at 3 in the morning to discuss that new crossing route.
* A county prosecutor in Ohio indicted Punxsutawney Phil for erroneously predicting an early spring. Everyone had a good laugh except for attorneys who are unable to get their cases on the docket because it's too busy.
* If we're going to begin indicting people for inaccurate weathercasts, Omaha TV meteorologists could be in a heap of trouble.
