Flash In The Pan

leave a comment »

Behold, Lyndon B. Johnson, your Great Society in all its splendor.

Seriously, this store owner needs to close up shop and move to a more appreciative business district. Let this ghetto trash flash mob the local welfare office.

And LOL at the 0:50 mark with someone knocking an item onto the floor and another person picking it up and putting it back on the shelf.

Montgomery County police are investigating a robbery of a 7-Eleven in Germantown by more than two dozen people.

Police say the so-called “flash mob robbery” happened around 1:45 a.m. Saturday.

The group of about 24 people entered the store, stole snacks, drinks and other items and left after about one minute.

Police have identified several of the suspects through surveillance video.

A police spokeswoman says she doesn’t know how the robbery was organized.

He Shoots, He Scores?

Nate wasn’t the person who got called to take the shot. He should absolutely not get the cash prize. The only thing that would make me change my mind is if there is a clause in the contest rules that state someone my shoot in the place of the person who was originally called due to unavailability.

Between periods of a charity hockey game Thursday at Shattuck St. Mary’s, fans could buy a ten dollar raffle ticket for the chance to win $50,000.

The catch? Make an improbable shot. Shoot a puck from center ice into a 3 and a half inch hole in the goal. An 89 foot shot!

“A hockey puck is three inches wide and an inch high,” says Vinar, the organizer of the charity game. “The odds are like making a hole-in-one.” 11-year old Nick Smith from Owatonna was the lucky name drawn and the shot was made. One fan described the crowd as “louder than a Stanley Cup game.”

The amazing shot isn’t the entire story.

“I was outside when my name was called,” says Nick Smith. “So Nate took the shot in my place.”

No one suspected anything. Nate and Nick are twin brothers.

“I walked back in and my friend told me my brother made the shot,” says Nick. “I was shocked.”

Both brothers have played hockey since they were 3 years old, but both admit the shot was pretty lucky.

“I just lined up and yeah…made it,” says Nate. “I was pretty stunned.”

Nate and Nick’s dad came forward Friday and told event organizers that it was the other brother that made the shot. He told KARE-11 simply, “that’s the right thing to do.”

That Nate-for-Nick swap may mean they forfeit the cash prize, but either way the amazing sports memory has been made.

“If we get the money, we’ll save it for college,” laughs Nate. “It was pretty cool.”
