What's Trending 06/28/2013

Posted: Updated:

    Wednesday was a big day at the US Supreme Court but something else has gone viral from that day. Buzzfeed.com called it "The Running of the Interns" after numerous videos surfaced of SCOTUS interns racing with the decision to reporters. Intern Dan Stein is shown here running to NBC's Pete Williams. CBS news captured the exchange live on air. These videos have gone viral with thousands of views. Female interns even put away their heels in exchange for running shoes because they knew what was coming. This is also known as one of Washington's favorite traditions. Dan Stein appeared on the Today Show yesterday and they challenged him to race Meteorologist Al Roker's scripts out to him. Take a look.

     Hundreds of softball players will be doing running of their own this weekend. Except instead of being at the U.S. Supreme Court, they'll be at diamonds around Bismarck/Mandan. Trending locally is the annual Sam McQuade Senior slow pitch Softball tournament happening this weekend. It is the world's largest charity softball tournament and it's going on it's 38th year. The annual tournament brings together teams and fans from all over the country. This year they have 13 different leagues on the schedule and as always it's sponsored by Budweiser. It's known by many as the most exciting weekend of the Summer here in Bismarck. But it's not just about playing softball and sharing good times. I talked to one player who says she enjoys it because of all the goodwill that stems from it. "I really like how they do a lot of charity work with McQuades. I now a lot of the umpires donate whatever they make at their games back to the McQuade's foundation so it all goes to one charity. " says Kori Link, a frequent participant in the tournament. The tournament runs Friday through Sunday. Check out their Facebook page for more information or follow them on Twitter.
