German soccer star Mesut Özil donates his $400K World Cup bonus 

Mesut Özil, the midfielder for Germany’s World Cup-winning team, just set an example that all stars need to see.
After Germany won the final, each player received a bonus of more than $400,000. (Spain, for instance, had proposed a $980,000 winning bonus, to great outcry.) Instead of keeping his portion, however, Özil donated it all to support the surgeries of sick Brazilian children.

Props to the German team for being actual amazing human beings too (which nobody seems to talk about on German TV)

Haystacks Calhounian New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, despite his bridge woes, has been relatively savvy when it comes to social media during his time in office.  That is, if you consider having a taxpayer-funded videographer pop up his Rock-like verbal smackdowns on Garden State residents at town hall meetings “savvy.”
News broke last night that the King Kong Bundy-sized chief executive of the state released a video where he looked to squash pension reform critics like they were Special Delivery Jones at Wrestlemania, using former Nation of Domination militant Dwayne Johnson.
Per NJ.com:

The governor’s office spliced some shots of the one of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s movies in the video that featured Hollywood-movie explosions and clips of Christie talking about pension reform.

Accoring to WNYC’s Matt Katz, the Rock asked not to be in the video. Beyond that, the governor’s office has been silent on the quick removal.
Prior to the removal, MyFoxPhilly noted:

The movie-trailer-style video posted to Christie’s YouTube channel says it’s from “Statehouse Studios” – complete with a screen indicating it’s “Rated R For Reform.” It uses dramatic music, movie footage and language as well as some guest appearance from actor and wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to portray the battle in epic terms.

Unnamed sources claimed Christie smelled what he Rock was cooking, and unsurprisingly couldn’t help himself.
