Tony Hawk’s funny story about his encounter at a coffee house on Friday went viral.
Hawk was in the Boone, N.C. area for the graduation of a friend’s daughter from Appalachian State University. He went to a coffee shop on Friday in Lincolnton, N.C. called Grounded Coffeehouse.
The woman who was working told the skateboarding legend that he resembled Tony Hawk. As Hawk was exiting, a girl by the door agreed that he did look like Tony Hawk.
At coffee shop this morning: Girl behind counter: (not joking) “has anyone told you that you look like Tony Hawk?” Me: yes, so much that I sometimes write about it. Her: haha, here’s your coffee Other girl by exit: (leans toward me as I walk out): “you really do look like him”
There is a viral trend going around social media in which people attempt the “Milk Crate Challenge.” The challenge involves trying to successfully climb over a pyramid of crates without falling. More people fail at it than not, risking serious injury. But the Indianapolis Colts’ mascot has it locked down.
The Colts’ mascot, Blue, shared a video on Twitter promoting its success with the challenge. Take a look:
Lamar Odom had to cancel a recently-scheduled guest appearance due to health reasons.
Odom was set to appear on “Addiction Talk” with Joy Sutton last week on Facebook Live. However, he canceled due to health reasons, saying that he was dealing with dehydration and exhaustion.
“Just moments ago we received information from his team, the agency that works with him, that let us know that he wont be able to join us tonight due to some health concerns,” Sutton said, via Page Six. “We’ve been told that he’s dealing with dehydration and exhaustion, and I can tell you that he did want to be here tonight.”
Odom’s dehydration and exhaustion issues stemmed from working out and basketball camps, according to his representatives.

Joey Chestnut defied the odds on Sunday by breaking his own world record at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest, and very few gamblers had faith in him leading up to the event.
Chestnut ate a total of 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, breaking the record of 75 he set a year ago. Most Sportsbooks set the over/under at somewhere between 73.5 and 75.5 According to Darren Rovell, almost none of the money at DraftKings Sportsbook was on Chestnut tying or breaking his previous record. Just 1 percent of the total handle was wagered on the over.
Doubters Lose: Only 1 PERCENT of the handle at @DKSportsbook was on Joey Chestnut to eat more than 74.5 hot dogs and buns.
Apparently, the vast majority of people believed Chestnut peaked in 2020. They were wrong.
Chestnut’s performance was nothing shy of incredible, but unfortunately TV viewers missed a lot of it. ESPN had some serious technical difficulties during the 10-minute event. You can probably guess how Twitter reacted to that.
Joey Chestnut once again broke his own record at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday, but unfortunately viewers were unable to watch a significant portion of his incredible performance.
Chestnut ate 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, breaking his world record of 75 from last year. ESPN’s coverage of the event cut out several times, however, including in the final seconds as Chesnut set the new record. Here’s what the technical difficulties looked like:
Cricket fans can be extremely enthusiastic about their teams, but one particularly cheeky fan showed us during a match this weekend that he is passionate about something else as well.
A fan at a recent Middlesex cricket match was caught by TV cameras getting extremely, let’s call it cozy, with the woman he was sitting with. The woman leaned over to say something to the people sitting in the row behind her and got a nice “hi, how ya doin?” from the gentleman sitting next to her.
