    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. "Everything was all right — then 'boom!' in New York," Limnioti said.

    When Brian Burke traded two first-round picks and a second-rounder to the Boston Bruins in September 2009 for Phil Kessel, he believed the Toronto Maple Leafs would make the playoffs in 2010 and 2011. When they didn't, the Bruins got the Leafs' No. 2 pick that became Tyler Seguin and the No. 9 pick the next year that became Dougie Hamilton. Fans at TD Garden in Boston would often chant, "Thank you, Kessel," for the deal that looked like it could be incredibly lopsided.

    Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr returned home to Massachusetts this week after spending some time "car camping" near the coast of New Brunswick with his wife. Burr's friends and family on Facebook were equally confused by a photo he posted of a green-and-white River Valley Scenic Drive signpost. "The signs of New Brunswick's highways and byways aren't exactly done wrong, but they seem to require a cognitive leap of which our American sensibilities, enfeebled by reality TV shows and Katy Perry songs, are incapable," he explained.
