Lindsey Vonn is perhaps the most-recognizable American skier ever. The 2010 Olympic gold medalist in downhill has won four World Cup overall titles. But as talented as the 29-year-old is on the slopes, she might be nearly as accomplished as a performer. Vonn made a cameo appearance in the final series episode of "Law & Order" four years ago and was a correspondent for NBC News during the 2014 Winter Olympics while recovering from injury. Evidently, the on-camera bug has bitten Vonn once again. She recently starred in a video for Vail Resorts promoting the Epic Pass — in Clark Kent-esque fashion — that shows her selling ski tickets to unsuspecting customers, none of whom seem to realize who she is — with one creepy exception. Cue to the 4:05 mark to see what we're talking about.
Man of his word
Meanwhile at Augusta National Golf Club (where Vonn's boyfriend isn't this week), three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson paid off a $1 wager with a patron with the assistance of Jason Dufner's caddie.

Tennis balls and dogs
Finally, six-time Grand Slam singles champ Novak Djokovic brought his dog, Tesla to practice — and it was predictably adorable.
