It wasn't until today that I learned what the term "Sugar Bomb" means. (Thank you Urban Dictionary) This came up after Maroon 5's Adam Levine was Sugar Bombed outside the Jimmy Kimmel show. Someone tossed sugar on him also striking a security guard and Adam's assistant with the granulated monosaccharides, glucose, fructose and galactose.
No one was hurt. Tossing sugar on someone may seem harmless enough unless you're the one being doused. From the looks of the picture there was nothing sweet about it. The guy who did it was arrested and is being held in lieu $100,000 bond on battery charges. Jerk.
Lost on me is what dark political or social statement was being made here. (tongue in cheek) Especially when you consider Sugar bomb is more often a noun than a verb and actually means a thing or event that has lots of hype at the outset but fades quickly. Example: the Mayweather Pacquiao fight.
Rachel Platten is a Columbia recording artist and singer of a very inspirational song called "Fight Song." She's out on tour with Andy Grammer and earlier today stopped by Mix 100.3 and was chatting with Mark Andrew and Emily Makinzie about her song and some of the pranks she and Andy have been playing on each other.
Her name is Roxanne Chalifoux. She became an internet senstation over the weekend after CBS cameras got this shot of her crying while attempting to play her team's fight song in the closing seconds of Villanova's upset loss to N.C. State. We learned today, however, that she was crying at more than just crushing loss. At the moment those shots were taken Roxanne was realizing that, as a senior, this would be her last time playing with Villanova's pep band. Awww! She is a good sport about the pictures that have gone viral and told a Philadelphia radio station today that she thinks it's all very funny. Roxanne is a biology major and after she graduates this spring plans to attend optometry school. There's something worth smiling about!
Sure it seems amazing. But I have a great reason you'll never want to do this. About 15 years ago I got very close to a lion at a circus where I was a guest ringmaster. There was a group of lions in cages about 15 feet from me. What I learned that day is that lions can pee or perhaps spray, up to about 10 or 12 feet with pinpoint accuracy. They missed me. But the smell was overwhelming. I will not be giving any lion a second chance mark his territory on me.
