FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A flop on Broadway, Tim Tebow is getting an audition in Beantown. Whether he'll perform well enough to make it to training camp with the New England Patriots next month is uncertain. At least he has a chance to prolong an NFL career that seemed at a dead end after he was released by the New York Jets in April. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that the quarterback would join the Patriots for the start of their three-day minicamp on Tuesday and sign with the team, pending a medical exam.

WILMETTE, Ill. - Like a lot of kids, the two brothers from northern Illinois spent hours marveling at the weird and the wonderful in the Guinness Book of World Records _ and wondering what they could do to get in it. Their friends tried endless pogo stick jumps. One practiced in the shower for an attempt at the loudest burp. Then, Luke and Ryan Novosel, 11-year-old twins from Wilmette, Ill., began counting up all the other twins in their school directory and came to a startling discovery.
