During a baseball game featuring the Daytona Cubs (the single-A club of the Chicago Cubs), the park deejay was ejected by an umpire. It seems after an questionable call, Dye played the classic children's tune, "Three Blind Mice." According to milb.com: "Umpire Mario Seneca '… pointed to Dye in the press box and shouted, 'You're done!' Ditto for the Cubs' public-address announcer. 'Turn the sound off for the rest of the night,' Seneca could be heard yelling during the Cubs' broadcast."

People Who Live in Glass Houses…

In Sydney, Australia 26-year-old Sam Wheaton spent 17 days in a shop front window watching the Olympic Games. His stunt was sponsored and followed by Fitzy and Wippa on radio station Nova 969. (96.9 FM). Mr. Wheaton had nine screens to watch the games and was only permitted to leave the window to go to the bathroom. His prize? The station sent him to Brazil on a two-week vacation. You can see some video of the stunt on YouTube.
