REAL-LIFE HERO

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is being credited with helping rescue a man who had been swept away by a riptide in the Hamptons. The New York Post reports that the New Day anchor was on his fishing boat near Shelter Island’s Sunset Beach on Sunday when he spotted the man struggling in the Peconic River. Cuomo threw the man a life preserver, jumped into the water, swam to him and pulled him to shore.

POTTY PARTY

Parrotheads are apparently too busy wasting away in Margaritaville to wait in line for the bathroom. Mansfield, Massachusetts, police tell The Sun Chronicle that despite warnings against the practice, many fans at the Jimmy Buffett concert Saturday at the Xfinity Center brought homemade, portable toilets for the party in the parking lot. Apparently, the most common model is a five-gallon bucket with its rim lined with a foam pool noodle for a seat, stashed inside a tent. It was estimated that 75 to 100 people were instructed to take down makeshift outhouses, but officers found seven to 10 latrines left behind.

KISS OFF HIS LIST

PLAY BALL!

Amateur video of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio playfully tossing a football while visiting Iowa Monday is going viral, not for its Kennedy-esque quality, unfortunately. In the short clip, posted on Twitter by Bloomberg Politics, you can see the Republican presidential candidate lay out a wobbly pass to a boy, while visiting a family in a Des Moines suburb. The boy’s arms extend too far, as he runs for the ball which squarely bounces off the skyward facing receiver’s face. Rubio is seen moving toward the child and offering a concerned, “Oh.” What is unclear is whether the boy ran the wrong pattern, or if Rubio's pass was off the mark.
