Dennis Rodman wants to score meeting with new pope

Posted: March 14, 2013

DENNIS RODMAN doesn't like to sit still.

The U.S. ambassador to the world - who visited with North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un last month - is off to Rome, where he hopes to get an audience with the new pope.

Of course, the cardinals haven't actually elected a new pontiff, but why let details get in the way of a good story.

Rodman told TMZ on Tuesday that his "people" are trying to arrange a get-together with whoever succeeds Pope Benedict XVI.

"I want to be anywhere in the world that I'm needed," Rodman told TMZ. " . . . I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world."

By the way, Rodman told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he's planning a return trip to North Korea in August to vacation with Kim.

Someone might want to tell the former NBA star that Kim has no interest in peace and love.

On Tuesday, the North Korean leader threatened to "wipe out" a South Korean island in response to human-rights sanctions from the U.S. and the United Nations. And just last month he presided over an underground nuclear test.

One in hole

Mark Mihal walked over to his ball, which rested in in a depression on the 14th fairway at the Annbriar Golf Club in Illinois.

Suddenly, the ground gave way and Mihal was swallowed into a huge sinkhole.

Mihal's friends had to use a rope to hoist him out of the 18-feet deep cavity.

All in all, the suburban St. Louis man got off easy considering the recent tragedy in Florida, where a man's body has yet to be recovered from a huge sinkhole that swallowed him and his bedroom.

"I feel lucky just to come out of it with a shoulder injury, falling that far and not knowing what I was going to hit," Mihal told the Associated Press. "It was absolutely crazy."
