Packers fan give Simone Biles amazing gift on the sidelines

Simone Biles may be a world class, record breaking gymnast with multiple gymnastic moves named after her. She's also married to Jonathan Owens, a safety for the Green Bay Packers and since tying the knot, Biles has made her fair share of appearances at the games. The gold medalist is typically decked out in Green Bay gear cheering from the sidelines.

It's a treat for fans of Biles who also happen to be Packers fans to see her at the game. But at a recent game, one fan dressed in a frozen cheese costume complete with icicles made a gift for Biles. A goat hat. Not just any goat hat, one that looks to be carved from foam wearing a purple shirt with the Olympic rings on the arm.

"You're the greatest of all time (GOAT). I had to make you something, okay? You are the GOAT. This is for you," the fan says.


Biles thanks the frozen cheese fan several times before putting the hat on her head but the man wasn't done. He had another hat for her husband, presumably one of the players the fans came to see.

"We can't let your husband out of the picture," the guy tells Biles before pulling out a hat made to look like Owens. It had everything, the helmet, the jersey, even his name on the back. Biles was equally thrilled to see the second hat, proudly taking pictures with both the hats and the frozen cheese man that gifted them to her. Fans were amazed when the sweet video was posted to social media by CBS Sports HQ.

"That's So Cool! His Costume Has Got to Be one of The Best I have Ever Seen For Football," one person writes.

"That's awesome. This is the first time I'm jealous of the Packers. She's such an inspiration and I wish she was on our sidelines!! You go girl," another says.

"Omg those are so cute she is so sweet," someone else gushes.

Those hats are amazing and with as excited as she was it wouldn't be surprising if she showed up wearing them to a game one day. That would probably make the fan's day. See the entire interaction below:

This could be the guest house.


Inequality has gotten worse than you think.

An investigation by former "Daily Show" correspondent Hasan Minhaj is still perfectly apt and shows that the problem isn't just your classic case of "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer."

Toronto-based animator and video wizard Kevin Parry has gone mega-viral for his mind-boggling collection of videos where he turns himself into random objects.

In a series of quick clips he changes into everything from a pumpkin to a bright yellow banana and in most of the videos, he appears to suffer a ridiculous death. The videos combine studio trickery with a magician's flair.

A map of the United States post land-ice melt.


Land ice: We got a lot of it.

Considering the two largest ice sheets on earth — the one on Antarctica and the one on Greenland — extend more than 6 million square miles combined ... yeah, we're talkin' a lot of ice.

But what if it was all just ... gone? Not like gone gone, but melted?

Chloé was born at 32 weeks.


Every single day, babies across the world are born prematurely, which means that they're born before 37 weeks of gestation.

In Canada, about 29,000 infants are born prematurely each year, roughly 1 in every 13. But in the United States, around 400,000 to 500,000 are born early. That's about 1 in every 8 to 10 babies born in the U.S.!

Red Méthot, a Canadian photographer and student, decided to capture the resilience of many of these kids for a school photography project.

Teacher tries to simulate a dictatorship in her classroom, but the students crushed her

"I’ve done this experiment numerous times, and each year I have similar results. This year, however, was different."

Each year that I teach the book "1984" I turn my classroom into a totalitarian regime under the guise of the "common good."

I run a simulation in which I become a dictator. I tell my students that in order to battle "Senioritis," the teachers and admin have adapted an evidence-based strategy, a strategy that has "been implemented in many schools throughout the country and has had immense success." I hang posters with motivational quotes and falsified statistics, and provide a false narrative for the problem that is "Senioritis."
