Cubs Shortstop Addison Russell Delivers Nachos To A Cardinals Fan

”You don’t want to get in front of a man and his nachos.”

The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs have been bitter rivals since the hotly-contested 1885 championship series that ended in a contested tie. On Monday, there was a break in the ice between the two teams at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. In the second inning, Cubs shortstop Addison Russell dove headfirst into the stands after a foul ball, knocking a plate of nachos all over Cardinals fan Andrew Gudermuth.

After the inning, Cubs manager Joe Maddon suggested Russell head over to the home team clubhouse and grab a new plate of nachos for Gudermuth. When Russell returned to the field in the bottom of the third inning, he presented the plate of cheesy goodness to Gudermuth, who happily accepted the peace offering and took a picture.

“You don’t want to get in front of a man and his nachos,” Russell told reporters after the game.

The Cubs won the game 10-2, but Gudermuth won the internet with this fantastic selfie.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
