Watch: Boy's epic staredown at NCAA College World Series game

An NCAA College World Series game Saturday night between the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Texas Christian University Frogs was a normal game.

The players worked for a win, fans cheered and booed at appropriate times and the cameramen panned their equipment around, capturing footage to be broadcast on television.

But then one ESPN camera landed on a very interesting subject -- a boy who immediately engaged in a staring contest, looking directly into the camera lens.

The boy's staring contest arguably became more intense and competitive than the baseball game he was attending.

ICYMI: There was an EPIC stare down last night at the CWS!Posted by NCAA Baseball on Sunday, June 26, 2016

He locked eyes with the camera and continued staring at it for nearly 30 seconds. At one point, the boy turned to look at his mother -- who was completely unaware of what was going on -- but then resumed his dedicated staredown with the camera. 

He even wiggled his eyebrows and shoulders to assert his confidence.

Coastal Carolina went on to win the championship. But the real winner is this kid.

Woman stalked by wolf for 12 hours, saved by bear

A woman wasn’t sure if she would make it out of the woods after a wolf stalked her for 12 hours. Luckily, a mother bear was nearby and the woman used that to her advantage.

Joanna Barnaby was with her friend, Tammy Caudron, and her dog, Joey, near Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories of Canada last week when the two women became separated while picking mushrooms, CBC reported. As she returned to her truck, she heard a growl and turned around to see a wolf standing near her.

"I heard this growl behind me. There was a long, tall, very, very skinny wolf. A black wolf. And his legs were spread and his hair was standing, and he was growling and baring his teeth,” she told CBC.

Barnaby said the dog, Joey, attempted to charge the animal, but it didn’t work. She told CBC that the wolf began to attempt to separate the two and work on just one of them. "I think he was weak. He didn't look healthy. He looked old to me. I don't think he wanted to take us both on,” she said.

The two would be stalked by the wolf for 12 hours until finally around 4:30 a.m. Barnaby said she heard a loud noise and recognized that it was a mother bear and her cub.

"I heard this big crashing behind me and realized that the mama bear had attacked the wolf, or maybe the other way around, I don't know, but they were fighting and I could hear the wolf yelping and I could hear the mama bear growling, and I could hear all this crashing and I just took off," she said.

Barnaby and her friend's dog were able to escape and make it back to the highway, where they were picked up by the authorities.

Here's what the 2016 Rio Olympic medals look like

Less than two months ahead of opening day for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the gold, silver and bronze medals have been unveiled.

>> Read more trending stories   

"To the victors go these spoils," the official Twitter account for the games captioned images of the front and back of each of the three medals.

The medals for the Olympic and Paralympic Games were revealed Tuesday at an event in Barra Olympic Park.

The new medals were unveiled after days of promoting the new designs on social media. 

"Today marks the start of the final countdown to the first Olympic Games to be staged in South America," International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said Tuesday.

The reveal, 52 days before the Opening Ceremony, is the closest date to the ceremony that Olympic medals have been unveiled since the Sydney 2000 Olympics, when the medals were revealed one month before the games began.  

According to Rio 2016, the medals "have been made with sustainability at their heart."

The gold medals are free of mercury, and recycled materials comprise 30 percent of the silver and bronze medals. The ribbons for the medals were made from recycled plastic bottles and other materials. The cases that hold the medals were made from wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

In total, 812 gold, 812 silver and 864 bronze medals were crafted.

The front of each medal features the Rio 2016 logo with surrounding laurel leaves. The leaves represent the connection between nature and Olympians. The back of the medals features an image of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, with the Panathinaiko Stadium and the Acropolis in the background.

Each winning athlete's event is etched on the edge of the medal.

For Paralympians, visually impaired winners can shake their medals to sound off a noise-maker inside the medal. Gold medals make the loudest noise, while silver and bronze make quieter noises. "Rio 2016" is also etched in braille.

All Olympians and Paralympians who perform well enough to make it to the podium will be awarded with other prizes.

Rio officials also unveiled the design of the podiums to be used at the Olympics and Paralympics Tuesday. The podiums were made from wood and other organic materials to celebrate the tropical nature of Brazil. They can be reused as furniture after the Games.

The slogan for the Rio Olympics is centered on the idea of "a new world," in which all people celebrate difference cultures and come together in unity.

Lauryn Hill apologizes to fans after 2-hour delay at Atlanta concert

Fans, musicians and media all weighed in on Lauryn Hill’s tardiness to her recent concert in Atlanta, causing the singer’s name to trend on Twitter for much of the day Saturday.

But the one person who remained silent was the singer herself.

>> Read more trending stories  

On Sunday, in a message posted to Facebook, Hill said she is "figuring out a plan" to make it up to fans who waited more than two hours to see her perform at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday. Due to her late arrival and the venue’s 11 p.m. curfew, the singer only performed for less than 40 minutes before her sound was cut off.

“I have nothing but love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show,” the Facebook message reads.

Hill, who's show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET, took the stage around 10:20 p.m. She was forced to stop singing during her set because of a strict curfew that the venue, which is located in a residential area, enforces.

The crowd booed the singer when she first started the show and when she was forced to stop singing.

While a fan video seems to show Hill blaming her driver for her tardiness, her Facebook message makes no mention of the driver. 

Hill said she will announce details about how she plans to make it up to fans as soon as she has them.

Daddy Days: A letter for Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share a letter the 1-year-old wrote to my wife.

A couple weeks ago he pulled me aside and said he had jotted down some thoughts for a Mother’s Day card. He knew I had some writing experience, so he asked if I could look it over. This sounded reasonable, so I obliged.

I had to polish it up a bit (man, kids can babble on), but here’s the finished product:

Dear Mom,

We’ve been close since the beginning. For whatever reason, we just seemed to click. I’m hungry, you have food. I want to sleep, you put me in bed. I need a clean diaper, and you detect this through some magical power — I’m convinced is hidden inside your nose — and give me a fresh diaper.

From vicious vacuums trying to eat me to loud noises coming from the radio, you’ve saved me so many times. I love that.

I also love that you understand how challenging walking can be. And how any shirt I’m wearing might as well be a straight jacket when it comes to me trying to remove it.

I love that you appreciate my prowess at climbing the two steps to the top of the 24-inch slide in the backyard. And also how you celebrate my slide down every time as if I just scored a perfect 10 in the high dive event at the Olympics.

I’m sorry about the whole splashing in the toilet thing and that “code brown” situation in the bathtub. I should know better. But I’m thankful you were there to handle it, because that Dad guy doesn’t know what he’s doing when it comes to bathroom situations.

(Just between us, he totally asked me if I could just “hold it until Mom gets home” the first time he was watching me while you were gone.)

I have to admit I was confused by people patting your tummy and saying, “the baby will be here soon.” I thought I was the baby. I did some research into the subject and it appears I’m going to be an older brother. I’m assuming this isn’t going to impact your ability to protect me from the vacuum.

But this isn’t about me. It’s about how wonderful you’ve been. No one has made sure I was more completely taken care of than you, and I know my baby brother is going to be just as well taken care of.

In the 15 months I’ve been in this world (and the two years we’ve been together), no one has more thoroughly shown me what love is than you. I love that.

I hope you have a great Mother’s Day. You’re certainly a great mother.

Five facts about Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is here. Many will be celebrating the holiday with margaritas and Mexican food. Here are five facts about the Mexican holiday that you can use to impress your friends.

1)      Despite a common misconception, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. The holiday celebrates the Battle of Puebla, where, against all odds, the Mexicans made a stand against an invading French army in 1862.

2)      Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the United States than it is in Mexico, with the exception of the city of Puebla. Mexico holds more of a celebration on its Independence Day, September 16, than it does on Cinco de Mayo.

3)      The holiday means big business for the avocado industry. The California Avocado Commission says that Americans consume around 81 million avocados during Cinco de Mayo.

4)      Chandler, Ariz., has a unique way of celebrating Cinco de Mayo. It hosts a Chihuahua race every year. The event has been cancelled for 2016.

>>Quiz: How much do you know about Cinco de Mayo?

5)      The 2010 U.S. Census estimates that about 31.8 million U.S. residents are of Mexican origin. The largest concentration of Mexican-Americans is in Los Angeles, the city that holds the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the U.S.
