5 Things About Kenny Chesney That Might Surprise You

As our Kenny Chesney contest continues on Facebook – sign up for a chance to win a flight to Green Bay to meet Chesney and see him play on June 11 at Lambeau Field – we're running down some of the highlights of Chesney's prolific career. In his nearly two-decade run at the top of the country charts, Chesney's produced over 30 top 10 hits (not to mention his four Entertainer of the Year nods from the CMA), and his recent achievements are nothing to sneeze at, either – among them his current 'Goin' Coastal Tour' and the release of 'Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D.'

Kids Say (And Do) The Darnedest Things

As a mom, you love your kids unconditionally, but they sure can embarrass you sometimes! Just the other day, standing in line at the checkout at HEB, my Bowen, who is 2, pointed to a bearded man standing behind us and YELLED, “That man looks like a billy goat! That billy goat STINKS!”

Talk about wanting to run away! I was so embarrassed and couldn’t even turn and walk in the other direction because I had all my groceries laid out on the belt and was ready to check out. To add salt to the mortified wound, Bowen then asked to have a chocolate bunny at the checkout. I told him no and that too much candy would put holes in his teeth. He pointed to the checker and said, rather loudly, “She has holes in her teeth!” I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! To the man with the beard and the checker, I am so sorry that my 2 year old has not learned better manners!

375-Pound Shark Jumps Into Fisherman’s Boat [VIDEO]

Some may say that Texas fisherman Jason Kresse caught a shark, but when the 375-lb. sea creature jumped into his boat early last Monday, it kind of caught him instead.

The 29-year-old Freeport resident was out fishing for a red snapper with two coworkers about 50 miles off the Gulf of Mexico coast when they felt something hit the side of the boat. A few seconds later, the mammoth Mako was thrashing around inside the boat, much to Kresse and his posse's surprise.

I felt bad for laughing because he was a little injured but he was a good sport and got back up and tried one more time. When he did finally did ride into the lake it was pretty funny. Here watch it for yourself.
