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.

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

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

Preheat oven to 350°F.

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

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.

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.

Daily events beg for instant, accurate emotions, and Apple is providing new emojis that cover a wide range of them — a shrug, crossed fingers, and the facepalm. 

On Tuesday, Apple released its first beta version of its iOS 10.2 software update for its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch products. The developer preview will include 72 new emojis. Other additions include job descriptions like teacher, astronaut, scientist, firefighter and pilot. 

Apple has not announced an official release date for the iOS 10.2 software, but the new symbols, approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in June, are expected to be available later this month. 

So when you hear something ridiculous that makes you want to roll on the floor laughing, well, Apple will have the emoji available for you to express your feelings.

Buzzfeed compiled a complete list of the new emoji, covering the bases from clown faces to avocados.
