Isabelle Kaplan was born with a full head of hair also known as "anchorman hair." After her mother Mackenzie Kaplan posted a photo of her and her daughter it went viral receiving 3 million views. She's received look alike names like Mario Lopez and Ron Burgundy from Anchorman. She sure is adorable!

Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks received a hug from a young boy during the game after the boy managed to sneak by court-side security. Running directly to Anthony giving him a big squeeze, Anthony responded with a polite pat on the head.

A professional eater decided to set a new world record by eating 200 peeps in a little over than 14 minutes. He swallowed about 5,600 calories and 1,360 grams of sugar. His past beats have included eating things like a 5 pound burrito, 182 slices of bacon and seven Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's. You can watch the entire video here.
