This is Brad's afternoon edition. Click here to read his morning jokes.
* A man who lives near Standing Bear Lake returned home to find that a roofer who had the wrong address had mistakenly removed his roof while he was at work. Optimists say it could have been worse. How? They took the basement, too?
* Think of the irony. The city of Omaha works for months to put its best face forward before the College World Series, and a few hours before it begins, the big story on Omaha.com is a local guy whose roof was pilfered.
* The roofers went to the wrong address, took the roof off, left and didn't tell anyone. Other than that, the roofers did a fine job.
* I had no idea the College World Series was about to begin. You'd think someone in the Omaha media would have mentioned it.
* Edward Snowden has been banned from flights to the U.K. because he would be "detrimental to the public good." It's the same reason the British are trying to keep out "Grown Ups II."
* A Chicago Blackhawks fan vowed not to mow his grass until the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup. Imagine if a Chicago Cubs fan made the same vow? His yard would look like the Amazon Rainforest.
* There is a new social media app that's been described as "a Facebook for dogs." It's just like the regular Facebook, only more intellectual.
* In 2014, the Big Ten baseball tournament will be played at TD Ameritrade Park. If attendance is anything like it was at the Big Ten tournament this year, the event will pump almost $14 into the city.
* TBS is developing a reality show about Green Bay Packers' fans. A group of shirtless people with foam blocks of cheese on their heads -- it's sort of a more cerebral "Real Housewives" series.
* It's official. Former Nebraska coach Bill Callahan will call offensive plays for the Dallas Cowboys next season. Good news for Tony Romo - now, he has an excuse.
* Bill Callahan will call plays. This is what happens when the new employer fails to check an employee's resume.
* Michigan football coach Brady Hoke said Notre Dame's "chickening out" for not renewing its series with Michigan. Notre Dame fans are expected to forget this insult in less than 85 years.
