Looks like Mickey Rourke is down with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because Seth Meyers did not skimp on the ice, the water, or the "bucket" on last night's 'Late Night.' Rourke appeared on the show to chat about next week's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' but things soon turned to more pressing concerns, like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that's been circulating lately...
Derek Jeter announced through his Facebook page on Wednesday that 2014 would be his final season in Major League Baseball.

The Yankees drafted Jeter out of high school in 1992 and he eventually made his debut wearing pinstripes in 1995...
I grew up in the Kalamazoo area and played ball until my sophomore year of high school.
I, ahem, blew out my knee and couldn't run anymore. That's it. Just as I was graduating, I heard about this kid playing American Legion ball named Jeter. Was gonna be a big leaguer some day. While I Heard that a lot, I didn't think anything of it.
Look, I'm a White Sox fan. Jim Thome plays for the Twins. Enough said. Thome DID play for the White Sox for almost 4 seasons, and he's generally regarded as a heck of a guy, player and teammate. And he just hit his 600th career home run. Only 7 other players in 135 years of Major League Baseball have hit that many.
Nice going Jeter. He becomes the 28th member of the 3,000-hit club and the first player to reach 3,000 hits since Craig Biggio during the 2007 season.
Now that history has been made, who do you think will get there next?
