LeBron James wears Cubs uniform to pay off World Series bet

LeBron James didn’t like it, but a bet’s a bet. And when you lose a bet, you pay the winner.

>> Read more trending stories

The Cleveland Cavaliers star made a bet with former Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade before the World Series. If the Cubs won, then James would have to wear a full Cubs uniform the next time the Cavaliers played in Chicago. 

The Cubs did indeed win the Series, earning their first championship in 108 years when they overcame a 3-1 deficit to rally past the Cleveland Indians.

So the payoff came Friday night, as James and the Cavaliers came to town to play the Chicago Bulls. James donned a Cubs jersey, pants and cap. No cleats, though.

“I’m not wearing cleats,” he had told reporters on Thursday. “No glove. Just the uniform.” 

As James walked through the arena before Friday night’s game, he was met by a gleeful Wade, who videotaped his rival. 

“My Indians gave everything they had,” James said in an earlier video posted on the Bleacher Report website. “But the Cubs came back, and, you know, they showed what true champions was all about. 

“Meanwhile, I’m pinstriped-up, walking into a nationally televised game in Chicago because of a bet I lost.” 

"It's a bet," James continued. "You have to fulfill your bet. Nothing more to it."

Cleveland’s luck against Chicago continued to sour, as the Cavaliers lost 111-105 despite James’ 27-point night. Wade helped Chicago to victory by scoring 24 points.

"All season long, Bud Light has celebrated the most passionate and dedicated fans that the NFL has to offer, and as the playoffs approach, we want to see fandom turned up another notch," Anna Rogers, director of NFL partnerships and strategy at Anheuser-Busch, said in a statement. "Most NFL fans likely won't see one Super Bowl in their lifetime, so we figured what better way to reward one of the NFL's biggest fans than by giving him or her tickets to the big game for the rest of their life?"

Bud Light will place 37,000 gold cans in select 18-, 24- and 30-packs of 12-ounce Bud Light through Jan. 13. The packages will be sold across the country in all states except California.

Those who find a gold can can enter the contest by uploading a photo of it and using the hashtags #SBTix4Life and #Sweeps.

Six weekly winners will be selected to win a pair of season tickets to their favorite NFL team.

One grand prize winner will receive a pair of Super Bowl tickets for life, up to 51 years.

The grand prize winner will be selected the week of Jan. 16.

Thanksgiving 2016: Here are some recipes for those Thanksgiving leftovers

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and you’re stuff with stuffing, full of cranberries and up to there with turkey.

So, what’s for lunch?

When you’ve made a meal that could feed a football team, you’re bound to have a few leftovers. What can you do with all that food – repurpose, that’s what.

Here are a few recipes to help you with those turkey, dressing and mashed potatoes leftovers.

Thanksgiving dinner sandwich

Ingredients

4 slices bread, toasted

4 ounces (about 4 small slices) warmed leftover turkey

1 cup warmed leftover mashed potatoes

½ cup warmed leftover turkey gravy 

1 cup warmed leftover green beans

1 cup warmed leftover stuffing

¼ cup whole berry cranberry sauce

 Directions

Layer 2 bread slices with the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and stuffing.  Top with the cranberry sauce and the remaining bread slices.

Thanksgiving leftovers casserole

Ingredients

Stuffing – enough  to cover bottom of 9x13 pan

4 cups chopped leftover roasted turkey

2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans, peas), thawed

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3 cups leftover mashed potatoes

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/8 tsp. paprika

Directions

Heat oven to 375ºF.

Prepare stuffing as directed on package; spread onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Combine turkey, mixed vegetables and mayo; spoon over stuffing.

Mix potatoes and cheese; spread over turkey mixture. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake 30 to 40 min. or until heated through. 

Cajun-style red beans and rice with turkey

Ingredients

1 cup long grain rice, uncooked

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 cup chopped onion

½ cup chopped celery

½ cup chopped green bell pepper

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 cans (15 ounces each) mild red beans in chili sauce, undrained

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon hot pepper sauce

2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Cook rice according to package directions.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic; cook 7 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in beans, cumin, salt and hot pepper sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover. Simmer 10 minutes. Stir in turkey; cook, uncovered, 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Add parsley to rice; mix lightly. Spoon onto serving platter; top with the bean mixture.

Bacon wrapped stuffing bites

Ingredients

1 (6.5 ounce) packet cornbread stuffing mix

1 large egg

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped white onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1/2 apple chopped

1 cup chopped pecans

2 Italian sausage links, casings removed and torn into chunks

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon lemon zest

15 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the stuffing mix, egg and milk. Mix with a wooden spoon.

Add the onion, garlic, parsley, apple and pecans. Mix to combine.  

Add the torn sausage, curry powder and lemon zest. Mix to combine.

Arrange the bacon strips on a baking sheet. Take a small mound of stuffing and form a little log, or finger. Place the mound in the center of each bacon strip. Wrap the bacon around the stuffing.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and stuffing is browned and cooked through.

Cheesy leftover mashed potato pancakes

Ingredients

3 cups chilled leftover mashed potatoes

2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tablespoons chopped scallions, green and white parts

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil, for pan-frying

Sour cream, for serving

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, cheese, scallions, egg and 3 tablespoons flour until combined. (See Kelly's Notes.) Using your hands, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a compact ball then flatten it into a pancake about a 1/2-inch-thick.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow dish and carefully dredge each pancake in the flour.

Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. (Add enough oil to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan.)

Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches. (Do not overcrowd the pan and do not flip the pancakes too soon or they won't develop a crisp crust.) Transfer the pancakes to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt.

Serve the potato pancakes topped with sour cream and garnished with additional chopped scallions.

More information about Old Dominion: 

Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion lend old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion have emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut.” Old Dominion released their PLATINUM two-week No.1“Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified GOLD hit “Snapback” prior to their third single “Song For Another Time,” which is Top 10 and climbing. They spent their summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and are now headlining their Meat and Candy Fall Tour, with 15 of the dates tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival. Spring 2017, Old Dominion will join Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabond Tour. The ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year are also nominated for two CMA Awards: Best New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year and Favorite Duo or Group – Country for the 2016 American Music Awards. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

Supermoon yields spectacular views

The skies early Monday were dominated by a spectacular supermoon, the closest the satellite has been to Earth since January 1948 and a sight that won’t occur again until 2034.

>> Read more trending stories

The moon appears to be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than the average full moon.

The distance between Earth and its moon changes because the moon’s orbit is elliptical. While the average full moon is about 236,790 miles from Earth, Monday’s moon will be 221,525 miles away – a difference of 15,265 miles. 

In South Florida the skies were clear for the view, while other parts of the state were cloudy and obstructed the view somewhat. Around the world, photographers captured the unique event and posted their work on social media sites.
