College Football Player Defends Name On Twitter

A college football player takes to Twitter to defend his name and CNN's John Berman gives him the "Anthony Weiner" Award of the Day.

Here's the story:

Jake Butt is a freshman football player at the University of Michigan. He plays as a tight end and apparently was getting some flack for the coincidence between his name and his position. Butt took to social media to silence his critics saying:

"Yes, I'm a tight end. Yes, my last name is Butt. hhahaha"

So Berman gives him the award named after another man with a last name similar to what he's known for.

Man Celebrates Triathlon Win A Few Steps Short

French athlete Jeremy Jurkiewicz celebrates a little too early at a Brazilian triathlon, CNN's John Berman reports.

Just feet from crossing the finish line, the Frenchman decides to enjoy his victory while another runner Igor Amorelli comes up from behind.

The man sees the chance for victory and sprints toward the finish line but Jurkiewicz realizes just in time and almost seems to try to pull the other guy back, before crossing the line himself.

He wins the triathlon and Berman's award for Thursday:

"Don't Count Your Poulets Before They Hatch."
