Erin DiMeglio

The 17-year-old high school senior from South Plantation High School in Florida became what may be the first girl to play quarterback for a boy's high school football team. In a sport that is about as testosterone-loaded as it gets, DiMeglio proved her mettle Aug. 31 when she was put into a game late in the final quarter after her team had run up a commanding lead. She completed two handoffs.

 

Old school communications

Guinness World Records has recognized the oldest recorded message in a bottle after a Scottish skipper plucked a 98-year-old note from the sea off the coast of Scotland. It was released June 1914 as one of 1,890 bottles released to help map the currents of the seas around Scotland. Only 315 were ever found. The find surpassed the previous record for oldest message in a bottle by more than five years.

 

Prince Harry

He was back in the royal good books last week after an appearance for a children's charity. At the WellChild Awards, Harry wagged his finger playfully at Alex Logan, 6, who had told journalists he planned to scold Harry about his naked exploits in Las Vegas. The boy said he was going to tell Harry he was "glad he got his clothes on," but Harry charmed the little boy, telling him "I heard you were on ITV earlier; you said something cheeky. Let's not talk about that here."
