Aaron Rodgers hits fan jumping off a boat in Tahoe in stride with perfect throw

Green Bay Packers quarterback (and former Cal Golden Bear) Aaron Rodgers is known for his downfield accuracy. 

Rodgers has three successful Hail Marys to his name. The first, on Dec. 3, 2015 against the Detroit Lions, kept his team's playoff hopes alive. Another, on Jan. 16, 2016 against the Arizona Cardinals, sent the Divisional game to overtime, and a third came en route to a Wild Card game win against the New York Giants on Jan. 8, 2007. 

At the American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe on Friday, Rodgers added another notch to his belt.

His latest effort won't be confused with the other three, but it's not like any of those receivers landed in a body of water, either. 

The real question? Whether or not that's a catch under the NFL's new rules.

How to watch UFC Fight Night Sacramento: Live stream, start time, TV info

A pair of hometown heroes headline UFC Fight Night Sacramento on Saturday at Golden 1 Center. 

Urijah Faber (34-10-0) will fight for the first time since Dec. 17, 2016, coming out of retirement to fight Ricky Simon (15-1-0) about 15 miles from Faber's collegiate alma mater of University of California, Davis. Faber isn't lacking motivation coming out of retirement, and can give the crowd in Sacramento something to cheer about.

So, too, can Folsom native Aspen Ladd (8-0-0). She is undefeated in her pro career, but will face a more difficult opponent in Germaine de Randaime than at any point so far in her career.

Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest results: Joey Chestnut wins 12th title

He has done it again, folks.

Joey Chestnut took home the belt by eating 71 hot dogs -- or sandwiches -- in 10 minutes Thursday at the 2019 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. The Bay Area native, who lives in San Jose, now has a whopping 12 titles at the event. 

He's been crowned the champion in four straight years now. Thursday's count of 71 hot dogs was three off his record of 74. 

Here are some, uhh, stats from Chestnut's feat.
