Looks like they had good parents after all.

After a video went viral yesterday of MLB announcers mocking sorority girls ignoring a baseball game to take selfies, the Arizona Diamondbacks wanted to make things good with the women of Alpha Chi Omega.

They offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game in hopes of making everything square, showing there were no hard feelings.

In a classy response, the sorority publicly thanked the organization, but said the tickets would be better used for a charity. They also brought attention to the fact that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and invited people to donate toward protecting families.

Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks and Fox Sports for reaching out...

Just a perfect response.

SpiderMable battles crime in Edmonton as she also battles leukemia.

Just like Batkid before her, a girl stricken with cancer is getting her wish to help a city in need.

With the Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference deemed missing, Edmonton police can only turn to SpiderMable, a six-year-old with a wish to be a super hero as she nears the end of her leukemia treatment.

A whole bunch of people, officials, the media and even Ference's family has come together to let #SpiderMable join up as Spider-Man's side kick and tackle the criminal underbelly that is terrorizing Edmonton.

Local news network CTV News gives more details:

Six-year-old Mable Tooke is battling crime across Edmonton Monday, under the guise of a Spider-Mable alter-ego she adopted in her two-year fight with leukemia.

As Mable nears the end of her cancer treatment, the Children's Wish Foundation is staging a day-long superhero adventure across Edmonton, with the ultimate goal of rescuing Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference, who has been kidnapped by an evil villain.

Organizers say the idea was inspired by cancer survivor Miles Scott, also known as "Batkid," who gained international attention after thousands of volunteers helped transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day in 2013.

Of course, the hashtag #SpiderMable has blown up.

A volunteer has dressed like SpiderMable's hero Spider-Man and is leading her through an adventure in the city.

There's even a freakin' theme song.

People are so wonderful sometimes.

Kanye West told Vanity Fair that he's seriously thinking of a 2020 presidential run.

In an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, Kanye West turned the 'Kanye for President in 2020' light hearted joke that was going around a few weeks ago into something shockingly close to earnestness.

It's a really long-winded diatribe in which he circles around the questions of a possible presidential run, switching topics and lines of thought like a cake-addled pedagogue.

Still, the interview makes it super clear that it's a possibility for Yeezy.

Question: "Are you still thinking of running in 2020?"

Answer: "Oh, definitely."

Here's some of what Kanye had to say:

When I run for president, I'd prefer not to run against someone. I would be like "I want to work with you." As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy. And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.

He talked about when he first mentioned the prospect at last month's Video Music Awards:

And then as soon as I said that, it was like, "Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he's extremely thoughtful. Every time he's ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He's probably the most honest celebrity that we have." I didn't approach that because I thought it would be fun. It wasn't like, Oh, let's go rent some jet skis in Hawaii. No, the exact opposite. I sit in clubs and I'm like, Wow, I've got five years before I go and run for office and I've got a lot of research to do, I've got a lot of growing up to do. My dad has two masters degrees. My mom has a PhD, she used to work at Operation PUSH. Somehow the more and more creative I get, the closer and closer I get to who I was as a child. When I was a child, I was holding my mom's hand at Operation PUSH. I think it's time.

He discussed whether he would have to give up his design and his music if the American people voted him in office:

think about that. Because it's so therapeutic for me to sit and work for seven days. We work on the collection year-round, every day to the office, we have an amazing team, but then you have that seven days before the show where you just really, really don't sleep. . . . I have to stay creative. The whole point is to have someone [in office] that's creative, that's around amazing creatives. This is my theory: I think the world can be helped through design, so it's very important that I stay around creative, forward thinkers. It's very important that I continue to design, to be in practice of trying to make the best decisions possible. I hate politics. I'm not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that's all I can say, and I think we can. . . .

Good luck, Ye.

Stephen Colbert invites you to join him in his one of a kind type of life to give him some money.

In the wake of celebrity lifestyle brands like Reese Witherspoon's Draper James, Ellen DeGeneres' ED and Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, Colbert felt left out.

In the past he has invited you to step in his shoes, but this time he seems more concerned with just taking your money.

So he launched Covetton House, a place where you can buy a tie rack, a coaster or a bed bug-ridden curb couch.

And real, bison-made leather goods.

"Mmm... parmesan absinthe."
