Betting on Kate Middleton baby names has become a British craze this spring, which is pretty hilarious, but also not entirely surprising.

People will bet on anything, after all, and this is a particularly fun topic to speculate about. So which name is currently most popular among bettors?

Royal Family

Based on the number of bets placed, Britain's bookmakers say Alexandra is the clear favorite, with the odds already down to a surprising 2-1 as of Thursday.

Elizabeth, Diana and Victoria are close behind, following widespread speculation that the royal couple is expecting a girl - which is not even confirmed.

All things considered, and assuming Kate Middleton is pregnant with the royal heiress, the bookies - and the gamblers - are likely on the right track.

President Barack Obama has plenty of taxes in his budget proposal, with his plan to achieve $1.8 trillion in revenue featuring some truly weird ideas.

Not necessarily good, or bad. Just weird in the sense that you'd never expect or hear about them, unlike the public sequestration or fiscal cliff debates.

President Obama wants to establish a "Buffett Rule" of a 30 percent minimum tax rate for people making over $1 million in a year. That he's made clear.

Far less clear? Some of the other means of increasing revenue included in his 246-page budget. Here's a look at the five weirdest Obama taxes ...

Tiger Woods is the talk of this year's Masters, and not just because he's dating Lindsey Vonn, who's there to cheer him on, or because he's possibly the best golfer ever.

Guy's dropping f-bombs after shots that aren't even that bad!

On the 11th hole Thursday, Tiger hit the green in regulation, but left himself a long birdie putt ... which apparently warranted some (mostly light-hearted) profanity.

This isn't Woods' f-bomb, of course, and it won't be the last.

But when it takes place after halfway decent shots? The rest of the field had better watch out. Tiger is currently four behind the lead heading into round two.

There's little doubt who the MLB Fan of the Game was in this case.

Last night during the Mariners-Astros game in Seattle, a spectator snagged a foul ball IN HIS BEER, and then proceeded to chug what was left of his beverage.

Most of which ended up on his shirt ... but what can you do:

Other recent, great foul ball moments:

In tragic news, a 16-year-old boy died at a California high school after being hit in the chest by a softball during gym class, according to news reports.

Ramona High School Principal Tony Newman said that "after being hit, Taylor complained of his chest hurting then he collapsed," but briefly recovered.

Fellow students told KFMB-TV San Diego that Dorman continued playing the game and seemed fine for about 20 minutes, then collapsed a second time.

Lindsey Vonn made her Masters debut this morning.

The Olympic ski racing champion was spotted at the Augusta National Golf Club veranda next to a putting practice green watching Tiger Woods warm up.

With her not-inconspicuous sighting on golf's biggest stage, the couple - which recently confirmed they're dating - is clearly comfortable taking things public!

  • Tiger at the Masters
  • Lindsey Vonn at the Masters

Dressed in a long beige dress that hid a large brace on her surgically reconstructed right knee, Lindsey Vonn plans to watch the first hole in person.

After that, she'll have to watch from the clubhouse.

Oscar Pistorius is apparently feeling sorry for himself while awaiting trial for shooting his girlfriend, and wishing other people would share that sentiment.

The embattled South African track star's family issued a statement essentially complaining about celebrity gossip tabloids and his many social media critics.

Pistorius family says they are pained by the "disregard that is being shown by some ... for the profound pain that Reeva’s family and friends are going through."

That would be his slain GF Reeva Steenkamp. But their sympathy doesn't end with her. Oscar's family says that despite being free on bail, life is tough:

Just 12 days after surgery on his knee, Metta World Peace returned to action for the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday, playing 15 minutes in a critical victory over the New Orleans Hornets.

How did he pull off such a feat?

"I’m just too sexy for my cat," the man formerly known as Ron Artest explained in response to that question. "I’m too sexy for my cat.... If I wasn’t as sexy for my cat, I probably wouldn’t have came back. I’m so sexy, I came back."

Makes perfect sense to us.

Last night, meanwhile, Kobe Bryant was too sexy for all the cats in the world.

He dropped 47 points on Portland in a Los Angeles win, as the Lakers are now in sole possession of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
