Welcome to Naked News, I'm Carli Bei! We're kicking things off with your weekend recap in sports, which includes all your NFL highlights. But first, Veronica's here to talk baseball!
Super Bowl tickets are notoriously expensive, Carli, but this year's World Series might have it beat!
And I have a feeling the Chicago Cubs might have something to do with that.
Bingo. It's the first time they've BEEN to the World Series since 1945, and as we all know, it's been even longer since they won it! WELCOME inside my Naked Sports report! There aren't many people who can say they were there the last time the Cubs were in the World Series. And if you're a Chicago fan who wants to see it happen THIS time, I hope you've been saving up. The AVERAGE asking price for a seat at Wrigley Field during games 3, 4, and 5 is 72-hundred dollars! It's by far the most expensive World Series ever. Cubs fans have been waiting a lifetime to see their team win it all, and they'll have to empty their life savings to do it!
Now to the NFL and one of the strangest, games EVER on Sunday Night! The Cardinals and Seahawks grinded their way to a 6-6 tie. That's because kickers from BOTH teams missed gimme field goals in overtime! In other OT action, San Diego managed to rally all the way back from a 27-10 deficit in the second quarter to force extra time against Atlanta! Chargers running back Melvin Gordon had 3 touchdowns, and Josh Lambo made a 42-yarder to give San Diego a HUGE 33-30 win on the road.
The hottest player in the NFL right now is... Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi? It's true! He ran for 214 yards against the Bills on Sunday - the second week in a row he's topped the two-hundred yard mark on the ground. He's only the fourth player to ever top 200 in back-to-back weeks. The other three guys? OJ Simpson, Earl Campbell, and Ricky Williams. Pretty good company!
Let's head to the NASCAR track now! The boys were at Talladega for the final race in the Round of 12 of the playoffs. When race leader Brad Keselowski went out with a blown engine, teammate Joey Logano was happy to take his place! Logano jumped to the front of the pack on lap 148 and never looked back. Despite having the fastest car, Keselowski didn't finish the race and is now out of the running for the Sprint Cup. NASCAR's Round of 8 starts up next Sunday at Martinsville Speedway!
And in Formula One, if Lewis Hamilton ever needed a win, it was this weekend in Texas! The British driver kept his slim title hopes alive with a dominant victory in Austin at the US Grand Prix. It was the 50th win of his storied career. That was the good news. The bad news for Lewis was that his teammate and RIVAL Nico Rosberg finished in second place! With just three races left, Rosberg holds a commanding 26 point lead in the driver standings. They'll cross the border and go at it again this weekend in Mexico City, where the world title will be on the line. That's all for THIS edition of Naked Sports, til we meet again, I'm Veronica!
In the news today, people planning to stay in an Airbnb when visiting New York better make new plans! Governor Andrew Cuomo has enacted a law making it illegal to list apartments on the site for periods less than 30 days! The argument is that people are using their places as hotels, hurting the rental and hotel market and avoiding paying taxes. Airbnb quickly challenged the new law in a lawsuit. They have data showing that over 95 percent of their hosts have only one listing up and that most places are available infrequently.
Seems baggage isn't the only thing being weighed by Hawaiian Airlines! The carrier has been weighing the passengers on flights between Honolulu and American Samoa to determine seating! It seems flights between the two locations were burning more fuel than expected, and Hawaiian Airlines' six-month survey found each traveler and their luggage weighed on average 30 pounds more than their estimates! As a result, the airline stopped offering pre-assigned seating so they could make sure no row exceeded its maximum weight capacity!
And on Sunday, the incredibly little iPod celebrated its fifteenth birthday! Steve Jobs introduced the iPod to the world on October 23rd, 2001. The original sold for 399 dollars, had a 5 gigabyte hard drive, and a physically rotating scroll wheel! Of course, Apple isn't paying much attention to the iPod these days, as most people are happy to have their music on their phones, but the love is still out there. Vintage iPods are being offered on eBay for as much as 20 THOUSAND dollars! Stay tuned for more Naked News.
Oh, the iPod. Good times! We'll be hearing from Roxanne again a little later in the show, but right now, let's say hello to Madison Banes! She's going Naked at the Movies with the latest release from Pixar.
But this isn't the sort of Pixar film everyone's used to! It's CLEARLY targeted to adults and is pretty dark and sad.
No problem, I can deal with a little sad from Pixar. I mean, the opening of 'Up' still makes me weep every time I see it!
No, of course their kids' movies have had some serious moments, but this new short is clearly in a different league. Let me explain. To most people, animation is something just for kids. And even when it's for adults, it's at least silly, like with The Simpsons or South Park. But that's not always the case anymore, and nothing makes that more clear than the latest short film from Pixar! They've pulled on our heartstrings before with 'Up', 'Wall-E' and 'Inside Out', but we still weren't fully prepared for 'Borrowed Time.' You may not actually forget you're watching animation, but this story is all too human! The approximately six-minute-long short is available for free online, and I highly recommend you watch it in its entirety! Just make sure you have some tissues handy.
The kind-of classic Space Jam is coming back to theaters for two days only! To celebrate the movie's 20th anniversary, it will be screening in 450 select theaters on Sunday, November 13th and Wednesday, November 16th! The movie sees Michael Jordan join up with the Looney Tunes animated characters to take on a group of aliens at basketball! And when it comes to acting, let's just say Michael Jordan is no Michael B. Jordan! Of course, compared to Patrick Ewing, he's Laurence Freaking Olivier! Be sure to check it out for yourself!
Johnny Depp may be done with him, and Gene Wilder is sadly gone, but it looks like we'll be seeing more of Willy Wonka! Warner Brothers has reportedly reached an agreement with the Roald Dahl estate for the rights to the character and intends to make a movie based around him. Reports suggest the story will focus on an early adventure of Wonka's! Harry Potter producer David Heyman is on board, and the script will be written by former Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich! So be sure to keep your eyes open for those golden tickets!
In the meantime, Warner Brothers has some other big plans... literally! The studio has extended and added to their agreement with IMAX, which means many of their upcoming blockbusters will be appearing on the REALLY big screen! Titles in the deal include Justice League, Wonder Woman, Kong: Skull Island, The Lego Batman Movie, Blade Runner 2049, and Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One! Of particular interest will be Christopher Nolan's war epic Dunkirk, which is recording certain key sequences using IMAX cameras! Expect to be blown away!
And speaking of things that should blow us away, we finally got our first real look at Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2! Director James Gunn went to Twitter after this video's release to make it clear that this is a sneak peek, and not a teaser for the trailer, but whatever you call it, it's for sure got us excited! I know this is an action-comedy, so we're not supposed to acknowledge things like this, but I just have to say Little Groot is so cute! Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2, the sequel to the 2014 SMASH HIT, is in theaters May 5th 2017. I'm Madison Banes, and I'll see you next time Naked at the Movies!
Isabella Rossini slams food snobs in Talk Is Cheap.
The penny isn't good for much more than luck these days, but there are a hundred fake pennies out there that are VERY lucky indeed! The financial company Ally is encouraging people to respect the penny, and to do so, they've left a hundred coins in ten American cities that LOOK like pennies but are actually worth a THOUSAND dollars each! Or, as they put it, one hundred thousand cents! All the coins are in plain sight in public places, so happy hunting!
MetLife has pulled the football away from Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang, including the beloved Snoopy! The insurance company has ended their over THREE-DECADE long branding relationship with the cartoon characters. The decision comes as MetLife moves to more of a global corporate brand, with plans to spin off most of their U.S. life insurance business shortly. Of course, the contract with Peanuts, worth an estimated 12 million a year, doesn't expire until 2019, so in that sense, it's 'good grief'?
There's always a lot of talk about 'dream jobs', but this one's pretty hard to beat! Pizza Hut is looking for someone to eat pizza, travel and watch basketball! Pretty sweet huh. You'll be paid 50 thousand dollars and be known as their "Pizza Hut All-American." Your job will be to travel to as many Division 1 NCAA championships as possible! The only requirement is to share your experiences online. The position is centered around promoting that Pizza Hut is the new official pizza of the NCAA. Applications are being accepted until November 6th, so put down that stuffed crust and get on it! For Naked News, I'm Roxanne.
Thanks Roxy, and here I thought working at Naked News was pretty sweet. That sounds like my dream job. Anyway, let's move on to this week's Naked Foodie. Kat's got details on a BRILLIANT new public fountain in Italy, and a sweet addition to the M&M's candy line. But FIRST, she's taking a peek at TripAdvisor's list of the BEST-rated fine-dining restaurants in the world!
For the second year in a row, Spain's Martin Berasategui restaurant, named after its chef, took top honors. Runner-up was France's Maison Lameloise, with another French spot, L'Auberge de L'ill in third. The highest-rated restaurant in the US is Chicago's Alinea in sixth. And if you think the United Kingdom is all curries and fish and chips, take note! Three of the top ten spots are in the UK.
Italy has given us ballet, opera, and Leonardo da Vinci. NOW, it's given us a free public WINE fountain! It's at the Dora Sarchese Vineyard in the country's Abruzzo region. The fountain is housed in a little building resembling a giant wine barrel, and dispenses "vino rosso" 24 hours a day. How civilized is THAT?!
Meahwhile in JAPAN, Frito-Lay is gearing up for Halloween with new BLACK Doritos. The chips are garlic pepper flavored, and colored coal black. I'll admit, black chips sound more appealing than some OTHER foods that we've seen blackened for Halloween - I'm talking to you, Burger King and your gross black Whopper! Japanese Doritos fans can find the presumably vampire-repelling chips in stores all month.
After 75 years, M&Ms are finally creating a CARAMEL-filled version of the famous candies! The new melt-in-your-mouth-not-in-your-hand treat will still have a chocolate layer and outer candy coating, and will be a little bigger than the current milk chocolate bites. Look for the gooey new M&Ms in stores next year.
And finally, if you'd LIKE to be eating nice healthy vegetables, but much prefer the TASTE of fatty, sugary treats, help could soon be on the way! A group of University of London scientists are working to develop utensils that will let you change the way food tastes. Called the "Taste Buddy", it'll use a low-level electrical current to fool your taste buds into tasting the flavors you prefer. So yes, that broccoli could taste like a chocolate bar. Forget Mars missions - THIS is what people want from science! That's the final course on this week's Naked Foodie. I'm Katherine Curtis. Bon appetit!
We're just about out of time today, but before we go, I've got the winner of our most recent LIKE and SHARE to WIN contest! Congratulations to Justin Harvey, who wins one of our exclusive Naked News ballcaps and t-shirts! Send us a private message, Justin, and we'll arrange to send you your prize! We'll have another contest up soon, so keep your eye on our official Facebook page.
Coming up this week, we've got another brand-new audition that we're going to want your feedback on, plus a fresh VERSUS with Elise Laurenne and Kat at Fan Expo. We're also hard at work on our HALLOWEEN program! It's going to be equal parts sexy and spooky, so I hope you're looking forward to it as much as we are.
Thanks, everyone, for watching! We'll see you back here again tomorrow for another great edition of the Program With Nothing to Hide. Take care!
