THOSE SUPER BOWL BEERS ARE EXPENSIVE
You know they jack up the prices around any event, but an Indiana couple didn't expect to pay nearly 3000 bucks for two beers.
The two were attending the NFL Experience at the Indiana Convention Center and used their credit card to buy two beers at the concession stand. It should have cost them 14 dollars, but they found out later that their credit card had been charged $2,995.
The concession manager said they are working to correct the problem and that overcharges like that are rare.
NJ CAMEL PICKS THE GIANTS
Look out, Patriots - a camel has picked the Giants to win the Super Bowl.
Princess, who resides at New Jersey's Popcorn Park Zoo, has correctly picked the winner of five of the last six Super Bowls.
Need more proof of her picking prowess? She went 14-6 predicting regular season and playoff games this year, and has a lifetime record of 88-51. Apparently her best season was 2008, when she got 17 out of 22 games right, including correctly picking the Pittsburgh Steelers to win the Super Bowl.
How does she pick the winner, you ask? The zoo's general manager writes the name of the competing teams on his hands, then holds out a graham cracker in each hand. Whichever hand Princess nibbles from is her pick. Apparently, Princess showed no hesitation when she picked the hand with the Giants written on it.
HE WAS IN A HURRY
A 65-year-old Tennessee man wasn't about to sit idly while another vehicle blocked his car - even if that vehicle was an ambulance with a patient being loaded onto it.
Warren Melamed was upset that the ambulance was blocking his car - so he decided it to get in and move it - despite the fact that paramedics were putting a patient inside.
The paramedics heard the engine start and were able to stop Melamed before he could move the ambulance.
Melamed was arrested on one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle.
He allegedly told officers he was mad because the ambulance was blocking his car.
