You never know who’ll stop by your BBQ
Where’s the BBQ’s at Salt Lake??? Might just pull up 👀👀👀👀 HAPPY 4th 🙏🏾🇺🇸— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) July 4, 2018
There’s nothing worse than being stuck by yourself on a big holiday while everyone else is throwing parties. It can even happen to famous basketball players, like Jazz star Donovan Mitchell. When Mitchell was left without Fourth of July plans, he put out a call on Twitter.

Sure enough, Mitchell came through—and played some pool basketball, of course.
Every Patriots fan just felt their heart in their throat
We’ve all seen Tom Brady run, so we know there’s no way in hell he’s getting away from a bear if it decides to chase him. Fortunately, the beast kept its distance again and Brady won’t see the Bears again until Week 7.
I honestly can’t believe how many hot dogs this guy ate
Joey Chestnut set yet another world record for eating hot dogs—74 in just 10 minutes—but I want to talk about Rich “The Locust” LeFevre. When I saw LeFevre, 117 pounds of skin and bones and age 74, take the stage before the contest I thought there was no way he’d eat more than 10 or 12 hot dogs. I was very wrong. LeFevre finished in 11th place after scarfing down 28 hot dogs and buns.
