Ron Hunter is the coach for the Georgia State basketball team, and he tore his Achilles tendon last Sunday celebrating their conference championship win. So he had to sit in a rolling chair for their game against Baylor yesterday. And when his son R.J. won the game with a three-pointer, he started celebrating again . . . and fell OUT of his chair. Luckily he didn't hurt himself this time.

Want to impress people when you're out drinking for St. Patrick's Day? How about showing them you're the MacGyver of DRUNKS?

There's a YouTube video floating around that shows how to get the cap off a beer bottle using nothing but a sheet of paper. It's an old trick, but if you've never heard about it, here's what you do . . .

1. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom. Then fold it in half long-wise three times, until it's long and thick.
2. Now fold THAT in the middle, to turn it into a "V" shape.
3. Hold the bottle steady, put the "V" part under the cap, and pop it off.

You might want to practice once before you try to impress the ladies . . . you'll be way cooler if you do it on your first try.

Check out the video. Happy St. Patty's Day -- and remember, drink responsibly and DON'T DRINK & DRIVE! Plan ahead.

Leonard Nimoy, the actor, author and director best known for his portrayal of the ultra-logical character Spock in the TV series Star Trek, has died at the age of 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed to the New York Times that her husband died Friday morning at their Los Angeles home of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy said last year that he had been diagnosed with lung disease and was "doing OK."

Nimoy's poignant last tweet, sent on Feb. 22, reads, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."

"I loved him like a brother," co-star William Shatner said Friday. "We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love."

Co-star George Takei shared his condolences on Facebook Friday afternoon.

"Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard ... I shall miss you in so many, many ways," he wrote.

"Leonard Nimoy truly did live long and prosper. To celebrate his life and work, let us share in some of his best moments as the character we all took into our hearts, Mr. Spock."

A Woman Got Famous on YouTube, and Now Her Twin Daughters Are Too

 

A woman named Mindy McKnight runs a YouTube channel called "Cute Girl Hairstyles" that gives step-by-step instructions for crazy hairdos.

 

She's racked up more than three million subscribers over the past six years.  And now her 14-year-old twin DAUGHTERS are YouTube celebrities too.

 

They've been in a lot of their mom's videos.  But they also have a channel of their own called Brooklyn and Bailey, which recently passed the one-million-subscriber mark. 
 

They post one video a week, and mostly do pointless things for kids to watch.  Like their latest video, where they blindfold each other . . . taste stuff . . . and try to guess what it is.
