The Daily Heat Index: American Pharoah Takes on the Travers Stakes

Michael Myers proposes to his girlfriend, we watch crocs go crazy, and a serviceman requests quality time with Ronda Rousey.

Here’s your daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:

Giddy Up

After receiving the title of Triple Crown, American Pharoah is back at it once again. The champion horse heads to Saratoga this Saturday to continue in the Breeders Cup Challenge Series in hopes of keeping up on his winning streak. We know we’ll be watching. 

Crocs Gone Wild

Well, this is terrifying. In an Australian zoo, the crocodile exhibit started to look a little more like the Thunder Dome. Apparently, one of them just couldn’t wait for feeding time, so he snapped down on a fellow croc’s leg. When he tried to roll free, the limb tore clear off, effectively freaking out zoo-goers. No thank you.

Horrifying Haddonfield Proposal

Ornate proposal videos have been all the rage for years, but one enterprising young man thought, hey, why not inject a little macabre horror into the mix? While his soon-to-be-fiancee was on a tour of Halloween locations, this fella donned a Michael Myers mask and laid in wait. No. Just…no.

Ronda Rousey, Will You Be Mine?

A Marine has done what you coulda-woulda-shoulda: asked

Ronda Rousey

out on a date. With the fighter’s next match set for January 2, Jarrod Haschert invited Rousey to attend the Marine Corps Ball with him December 11. With over 3.5 million views already, there’s a good chance that she’ll at least see it. Now, if she’ll say yes is a different story.

Hey guys, I’m trying to take Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball this year and I need your help to reach out to her and her fans. Please share this post and video. Thank you!!
