It all went down at the West Edmonton Mall, where Sydney Bourbeau, was performing as part of a celebration concert for Play for Pets, she was in the middle of singing Sheeran’s hit “Thinking Out Loud” when a surprise guest popped up on stage. “I had just finished taking my microphone out of the stand, so I thought someone was just coming up to grab the stand or fix something”, Bourbeau laughs. “I realized it was him after he came up the stairs on the stage, and I freaked! He came over and hugged me and I wanted to just cry and talk to him, but I realized he wanted to come sing his song with me!” Ed’s manager contacted Sydney and gave her and some friends front row center tickets.

The Rock Sideswiped a Parked Truck, and the Guy Didn’t Make Him Pay, Because He’s The Rock
It’s good to be The Rock. Dwayne Johnson was driving to a movie set in the Boston area recently, when he sideswiped a parked pickup truck, knocking its side-view mirror off. So he turned around and went back, and the owner of the truck came out to see what happened. In an Instagram post that included a picture of himself with his arm around the guy, The Rock says he apologized and offered to exchange information. Then the man recognized him and said, quote, “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!” He adds, quote, “I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies.” The Rock checked back with the man a few days later, and he refused to take any money. He told The Rock he fixed the damage himself. Get more here.
Here’s a fun story to start your week off… I’m driving to set in my pick up truck – music blasting – I’m singing away like I’m having a one man party in my truck – then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, “Aw shit.. someone’s not gonna be happy..”. I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said “Sir, is this your truck?”. He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and “Yes it is. Why?”. I said “Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything”. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said..”Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?”. I said “Yup”. He broke out into a huge smile and said “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!”. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into… and sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.
