Comedian Kevin Hart may be short in stature, but it doesn't seem to be holding him back. During a press tour of the United Kingdom to promote his film Ride Along, the funnyman stopped by Manchester City FC on Wednesday to visit the team and see his "cousin," goalkeeper Joe Hart (no relation despite the crowd's audible approval of the comment.)
After securing all sorts of laughs from the players and press on hand, the 5-foot-4 movie star lined up a regulation penalty kick with the 6-foot-5, one-time Barclays Golden Glove winner waiting in the net. Now, as you can imagine, the professional goalkeeper didn't go 100 percent in this situation. He actually went closer to zero percent as "cousin Kevin" zipped one by him into the net. But the goal — which the shorter Hart claimed to "bend it like Beckham" — was actually pretty adept, tucking itself just inside the post. Would arguably the best goalie in soccer definitely have saved that shot if he were treating it like a Premier League attempt?
Who is Ryan Gosling?
Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury has a lot going for him. He had a prolific college career, dabbled in the NFL and, most recently, became the youngest head coach of any team in an Automatic Qualifying conference when he took the reins of his alma mater. But when Kingsbury and his picture were used as an answer on Jeopardy recently, the question Alex Trebek was looking for had nothing to do with Kingsbury's accomplishments. The full answer read by Trebek was, "Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury seen here looks a lot like this star of Half Nelson and Drive."
Shaq's suits are now for everyone
When Shaquille O'Neal stopped by the Tonight Show on Tuesday, he made sure to plug his upcoming line of menswear at Macy's. He reassured host Jimmy Fallon that, "it's not a big and tall line. It fits you, it fits me, it fits everyone." Fallon stared back in disbelief as the audience laughed. To really put things in perspective, the 5-foot-10 Fallon suggested he try on Shaq's suit jacket. Not surprisingly, the Tonight Show host looked like he was swimming in the big man's coat.
