the famous YouTube sensation kid who was given a “web redemption” on Tosh.0 this past season. Here’s the remix of the turtles kid.

Who says there’s no new Chicago Bulls and NBA news. We have media sensations like the heart-warming tale of Bulls two-guard Kyle Korver and his saving of a snapping turtle’s life

via A turtle, a DJ, an ex-76er, and a second chance – Philly.com.

It was Kyle Korver, an ex-76er who plays for the Chicago Bulls. Korver, a friend of Robert’s who still spends time in the area, coincidentally was driving by.

“There was blood everywhere,” Korver said in an interview. “I didn’t think [the turtle] was going to make it.”

Korver fetched a shopping bag from his SUV. Robert picked up the snapping turtle – a dangerous maneuver, Schubert later told him – and put it in the bag.

Robert placed the turtle on the backseat of his car, next to Lucy, his golden retriever.

“I’m talking to the turtle saying, ‘Don’t give up, turtle. It’s not too late,’ ” Robert said.

This happened in Pennsylvania this past spring. The turtle in question had a cracked shell and seemed to be close to living out it’s final minutes. It was given a shell replacement and was released back into the wild.

Awwwwwwwwwww. I do love reptiles, and I had a couple pet turtles as a kid. So this is what passes for news when you have an unprecedented NFL and NBA lockout at the same time and no free agency to speak of. Then it combines with the summer sports lull/time of year when everyone is outside instead of behind their desk at a computer, and you get stories like these leading off the morning.
