96 Second News: There's A Shortage Of The Popular White Claw

The very popular White Claw hard seltzer is sold out everywhere!

September 9, 2019

**White Claw Hard Seltzer has been all the rage this summer, and now the company says there is a nationwide shortage of the popular alcoholic beverage.

The company suggests it became a victim of its own success, with demand taking off faster than expected.

White Claw sales spiked at almost 300% in July compared to the same month last year.

According to Nielsen data, the company clinched more than half of the country's total hard seltzer sales during the Fourth of July week.

The company says it's working to increase supply, but no word yet on when store shelves will be fully restocked.

**Two Sugar Land boys are saving up money to cheer on their favorite team.

An ABC13 viewer took photos of the boys' lemonade stand Sunday evening. In an interview, Haden and Holden said they're trying to raise money to go to their first Texans game, and they named their business "Watt-a-sized" lemonade after their favorite player.

When asked what they would say to J.J. Watt if he was watching, the boys said, "I would love to see you play a game. You're so good. If you're seeing this, you're the best football player in the world."

 

**FELICITY HUFFMAN is explaining why she paid a college admissions consultant $15,000 to rig her daughter's SAT score, and it doesn't make any sense.

She said, quote, "In my desperation to be a good mother, I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot.  I see the irony in that statement now because what I have done is the opposite of fair."

She said she'd panicked, and was worried her daughter's low math scores on the SAT would hamstring her dreams of becoming an actress.  (???)

Felicity is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday . . . and prosecutors are recommending that she receive a one-month prison sentence.  Felicity's lawyers want probation, a $20,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service.

Felicity will be the first one in this scandal to be sentenced.  LORI LOUGHLIN's situation is still up in the air . . . although she still hasn't owned up to doing anything wrong.

**In the market for a new house? This one may be right up your alley, if you like to be scared...

There's a real estate listing for a mansion in South Australia that's going viral right now . . . and not because of how nice the house is.

It's because the listing features pictures of some rooms in the house full of FREAKY, TERRIFYING things like scarecrows, evil dolls, fake spiders, and more decorations that give off a real "you'll get murdered in your sleep" vibe.

It's not clear WHY the woman who owns the house has all that stuff, like if they're Halloween decorations or she's just got strange taste in collecting.  It's also not clear if you get to keep all the stuff if you buy the place.

**Deadspin.com posed this question on social media:  For ONE MILLION DOLLARS, you've got to do one of the following:  Score in an NBA game, get a hit in a Major League game, or run for a first down in an NFL game.

All of them are ginormous long shots for an everyday person, but if you had to choose one, which is LESS IMPOSSIBLE?

More than 28,000 people weighed in on Twitter, and the NBA was the runaway favorite, with 82% of the vote.  Running in the NFL was second with 10%, followed by only 8% who thought they could get a hit in the Majors.
