Female powerlifter throws up on judges during weightlifting competition (VIDEO)

A female weightlifter competing at the Raw Unity Powerlifting Championships put maybe a little too much oomph into her lift when she projectile-vomited towards a row of judges sitting in front row of the Florida event.

The powerlifter, who is known on social media as BlondeBeautyBri, has since become a viral sensation for her unfortunate experience at the Port Saint Lucie competition, also known as the "Rum9."

In the video clip, the woman happily approaches the weights and after performing a little dance, lifts the weights then, out of nowhere, spews in the direction of the judges sitting in front.

The judges on the front row can be seen moving their chairs back quickly in order to avoid the spray — but not before the woman completes the lift and successfully manages to lock the weights at waist height.

BlondeBeautyBri showed that she had a sense of humor and later posted the barfing video to her own Instagram page.

Hopefully, hurling won't become an Olympics weightlifting category, but I would at least give her a 10 for distance.

Man dies trying to complete Krispy Kreme Challenge

A man has died after starting a charity race in which contestants are also supposed to eat a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts midway through the 5-mile run.

What started as a tasty and fun way to raise money for a good cause took a turn for the worse when 58-year-old Jeff Woods dropped out of the race during the first mile Saturday morning complaining of chest pains. He was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Woods left the race before reaching the Krispy Kreme location halfway through the 5-mile course — where competitors eat a dozen of the glazed and sprinkled treats before completing the final 2½ miles to the finish line.

The annual race is organized by students at North Carolina State University and benefits the North Carolina Children’s Hospital. It’s in its 12th year.


Eli Manning lookalike arrested for throwing live alligator into Wendy's drive-thru (PHOTO)

A 23-year-old Florida man — with an uncanny resemblance to Eli Manning — landed himself in jail after the dimwitted prankster threw a live alligator into a Wendy's drive-thru window.

Joshua James is accused of assault with a deadly weapon and illegally capturing an alligator after throwing the scaly creature into a Royal Palm Beach Wendy’s fast food joint.

And damn, if he doesn't look like a young Eli.
The alligator wrangler allegedly picked up the gator off the side of the road before shoving the three and a half foot reptile from the back of his car through the cashier’s window and saying see ya later.

His mother told WPTV that her son is not violent and that the alligator was part of a joke aimed at his friend who works at the Wendy’s.

“He’s a prankster. He does stuff like this because he thinks it’s funny,” she said.

As for Eli, we all know how the former Ole Miss star must feel about Gators, but lucky for Peyton's brother, everyone knew where the stone-faced Giants quarterback was this weekend. And I mean everyone.

The alligator was not injured and released into a nearby canal.

As for Eli, he was only charged with looking dumbfounded ... again.

Colorado school district bans students from wearing Peyton Manning jerseys

While Peyton Manning gets ready to play possibly his last game in the NFL, one Colorado school district has banned students from wearing the future Hall of Famer’s No. 18 jersey — and it's not because they are Cam Newton fans.

That's because Manning’s iconic jersey number could be used to show loyalty to the local “18th Street Gang, according to officials at Greeley-Evans School District 6.

Manning's No. 18 makes it one of six numbers identified by the district — which operates 25 schools — as having potential gang associations.

So all you Owen Daniels fans are out of luck too.

The five other numbers identified as gang-related by the district and can’t be worn by students in the public district, about an hour from the Bronco’s Mile High Stadium, are 13, 14, 31, 41 and Daniels' 81. Meaning you won't see any Trevor Siemian, Cody Latimer or Omar Bolden jerseys cruising the halls either.

“Gangs use those items of clothing for a few reasons,” school district spokeswoman Theresa Meyers told The Tribune, of Greeley. “They use them to recruit and they use them to intimidate.”

But the No. 1 sported by Newton, quarterback of Denver’s Super Bowl opponent the Carolina Panthers, will be allowed.

Manning has worn No. 18 since his collegiate days at University of Tennessee, and his jersey has been a big seller in Colorado since he became a Bronco in 2012.

But even with the Broncos in Sunday’s NFL championship, and schools around the state holding “Broncos Days,” Greeley-Evans hasn’t had to field any real complaints about its dress code.

“I think as time has gone on, it’s just an expectation,” Meyers said. “Now, people are just like, ‘That’s the rule.’”

Sabres fans take being '7th Player' to another level (VIDEO)

They might not actually know the pain of an NHL cross-check, but a couple of of Buffalo Sabres fans looked like they were part of the team when turned their seats along the Bell Centre glass into their own extension of the hockey bench.

The two Sabres "players" sat there in full team regalia — home white jerseys with white helmets complete with all the appropriate decals —  and even had their own towels and water bottles as props.

And if you didn't know the creative pair was sitting on the wrong side of the glass, the imposters' mannerisms and anxious looks at the coach and scoreboard — not to mention the scraggy facial hair — would have you think they were really part of the team.

But maybe those funny looks and head shakes from the real players is what gave them away.

Jay Bromley rape accuser might have once tried to extort actor Taye Diggs: Report

Jay Bromley denied Sunday that he attempted to rape a woman at a Manhattan hotel Saturday morning after meeting her on Instagram. The woman claims the New York Giants defensive end hit her with his car after a hotel room encounter went bad and he tried to flee the scene.

Bromley's manager, Keko Payne, told the New York Daily News that the allegations were "absolutely not" true and that the woman tried to shake the 23-year-old Bromley down for money after their hookup turned bad at the Hyatt Herald Hotel in midtown.

Now, NYPD cops probing the alleged rape are investigating whether the same woman had previously tried to extort money from actor Taye Diggs over a sex tape last year.

The New York Post is reporting that Diggs — the talented star of Broadway, film and TV — was threatened with releasing a videotape of him, her and another woman having sex and doing drugs via Instagram last June.

The NYPD said they are aware of a third alleged shakedown scheme by the woman that targeted an unidentified “man of some note,” sources said.

Law-enforcement officials and neighbors identified Bromley’s accuser as a 26-year-old woman who lives in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The Post is withholding her name.

But last year, a woman — who went by the Instagram name Chankeong3 — uploaded a brief video clip showing her and Diggs in what appears to be an upscale hotel room.

Diggs — who shot to stardom in the 1998 movie “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,’’ is starring in TV’s “Murder in the First’’ and was in the original Broadway cast of “Rent’’ — is seen lying fully clothed on a large bed while the woman shakily pans the camera around the room before pointing it at herself and licking her lips.

In an accompanying, PROFANITY-LACED rant addressed to Diggs, she threatened to release “all 7 parts of this video, bitch.”

“I will air out this entire video piece by piece of u licking both me and my bitch p—y and ur f–k­ing number if u don’t get ya s–t right,” she wrote.

“Act dumb if u want to. I have footage of u on all kinda drugs, and sucking on my c–t hoe.”
Less than a week after the Diggs video surfaced, Diary of a Hollywood Street King reported that the actor had paid Bromley’s accuser “a large undisclosed sum of money” to cover up the scandal.

The accuser acknowledged to The Post that she posted the video featuring Diggs, saying: “Yes, I had an altercation with an actor in the past. I went to social media. A lot of girls go to social media and blast off when they are upset.”

But she insisted, “I never extorted that man,” and, “That man never gave me a dime.”

Bromley’s accuser introduced herself to the football player on Instagram, sources have said.

She has told cops that he raped her at the Hyatt Herald Square hotel, then hit her with his car outside.

She said that Bromley — who has not been charged — attacked her after she got sick while performing a sex act on him.

“I’ll be honest with you, I threw up. I agreed to s–k him off, and I threw up. I was drunk, and that’s when he blew up,” she told The Post.

But she refused to discuss the alleged rape in any detail, saying, “I’m not getting into all that.’’

As for allegedly being hit by Bromley’s car, she said, “My knee and back are injured,” and added that she was “really traumatized” by the incident.

A Giants spokesperson told The New York Post that they are "aware of the situation."

"We have notified the league office per the league’s protocol. We will have no further comment as we understand this is an ongoing investigation," the spokesperson said. 

Bromley refused to comment outside his home in Secaucus, NJ, on Sunday. Diggs could not be reached by the Post.

'A lifelong fan of the Bears (except Jay Cutler)' disses quarterback from beyond the grave

A lifelong Chicago Bears fan didn't let a little thing like death keep her from throwing some serious shade at the team's current quarterback Jay Cutler.

From her grave, the late Elizabeth Porter Bowman made it known that she was not a huge fan of 32-year-old Cutler, and even mentioned him in her obituary.

According to the 78 year-old woman's obituary published in the Chicago Tribune, Bowman was surrounded by her children when died in Northbrook, Illinois on January 9. 

"Betsy was an elementary school teacher and later a tutor, but her passion and focus was being a dedicated and involved mother and grandmother," read her obituary. 

"She was a woman of loyalty, integrity, opinion, curiosity and intelligence.

"A lifelong fan of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears (except Jay Cutler)."

The oft-maligned Cutler — who has been playing for the Bears since 2009 and lives in Chicago with his wife, Kristin Cavallari, and their three children — has heard the boos before.

But, as far as we know, not from the great beyond.

Cutler was the only athlete mentioned in the obit, but it's not clear why Bowman held such a grudge against the quarterback. 

The Bears or Cutler have not commented about Bowman's final words.
