welcome to mykonos ski resort. >> they had jokes on the greek islands following a rare snowfall. the unexpected weather hit on sunday. a holiday was declared tuesday for parts of the country affected by the snow. and they are more than used to snow in alberta, canada, which is one reason why the owner of that buffalo agreed to use it to pull a guy on a snowboard. 4-year-old indy had no problem pulling the rider. what did the buffalo say to its kid, mona, before sending him off to college? >> here's your wings? >> bi-son. okay, the producers are on it. now to baseball where
sportswriters have opened the doors to the hall of fame to a three-time world series champion. >> david ortiz is the lone player to reach cooperstown this year, but this year's vote may be more about three superstars left on the outside looking in again. some of the biggest stars to ever play baseball have been denied one of the game's highest honors. barry bonds, roger clemens and sammy sosa, all falling short of the votes needed to enter the hall of fame in their final year of eligibility. all three with ties to what's known as baseball's steroids era. >> not great personalities, the fact that they were tied to performance-enhancing drugs like they were, ultimately wrote them a ticket off of the ballot. >> on paper, the three looked like shoo-ins. sosa is one of the few men in the game's history to hit more than 600 home runs. clemons ranks in the top ten of all-time for pitcher. and clemens won seven cy young awards. barry bonds is the record holder for home runs with 762. but despite their record achievements, they've all been accused of using
performance-enhancing drugs, something they all deny. clemens even told congress he never used drugs. >> i have never taken steroids or hgh. >> clemens reacting, writing, i didn't play baseball to get in the hall of fame. only one was selected last night, david ortiz, known as big papi. elected in his first year of eligibility. his charisma and batting prowess were on full display as he led the red sox to a world series victory in 2015 just months after the boston marathon bombing. the boston fan favorite tested positive for performance enhancers in 2003, but in 2016, league commissioner rob manfred questioned the validity of those results. >> david ortiz got in because he was a great player and big personality. and that is a winning combination in hall of fame voting.
>> bonds, sosa and clemens could theoretically still be elected by a committee that selects overlooked veterans. i don't know if it's going to happen, though. they say if it didn't happen this year it's never going to happen. all right, coming up, what they never teach you in driving school. a driver who performed a 26-point turn on a narrow cliff. >> i could not look away, but the anxiety was through the roof. but first, how couples sharing a bed are bridging their own political divides. that's next. you're watching "world news now." bridging do you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? now you can sell your policy - even a term policy - for an immediate cash payment. we thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. but we quickly realized we needed a way to supplement our income. if you have $100,000 or more of life insurance, you may qualify to sell your policy. don't cancel or let your policy lapse without finding out what it's worth. visit coventrydirect.com to find out if your policy qualifies. or call the number on your screen. coventry direct, redefining insurance.
scene 103, take one. here we go. my name is wesley, and i'm with my knucklehead brother. my friend nafi. my boyfriend doug. i thought we'd be on the same page about this and we're not. how do i know the way i'm going to respond to it? there's not that long term research out there yet. i don't want to be on the front line. but you're human. you're going to make a mistake. i'm just saying everyone has a right to make their own decision. but why would you want to take that risk?
can you imagine being the person that goes to somebody's house and gives them the virus that kills them? what if you end up in a hospital? yeah. that's what i'm scared of. if you were to die, man... that would literally kill me, man. if it makes you feel that way bro... i will probably do it. can i hug you? yeah. i love you, man. i love you too. ♪ it ain't fiction ♪ ♪ just a matter of fact ♪ ♪ we come to together ♪ ♪ because opposites attract ♪
♪ who'd have thought ♪ a lot of '90s music in this show. it's often said opposites attract, most famously by paula abdul. >> but on this national spouses day, many are finding that being on the opposite side of the political aisle is far from the usual she likes chocolate but i like vanilla. here with more on that is will ganss. >> i like chocolate and vanilla for the record. according to a u.s. census bureau, the number one reason for divorce in 2021, incompatibility. but is it possible to reconcile political differences? we asked the expert about what she thinks about high-profile couples on the opposite end of the political spectrum. what happens if after you walk down the aisle you find yourself on the opposite side of political issues? >> there's such a divide when it
comes to politics and values in some ways. >> those on full display for robert f. kennedy jr. and cheryl hines following his controversial remarks at an anti-vax mandate rally. >> even in hitler germany, you could cross the alps to switzerland. you could hide in an attic like anne frank did. >> on tuesday, rfk jr.'s wife tweeted, my husband's reference to anne frank at a mandate rally in d.c. was reprehensible and insensitive. his opinions are not a reflection of my own. >> what couples need to decide first of all, is this a deal breaker? to some people it may not be. >> if the difference in politics and values is not a deal breaker -- >> i'm here, you're here. what can we agree on. coming up with an agreement, how can we protect our relationship. >> shailene woodley and aaron rodgers, also on opposite sides, got engaged a year ago. a source telling "people", early on they decided to agree to disagree about things. and not debate them.
the experts say this can work. >> we're going to protect each other's beliefs, but respect that we believe different things. but i never recommend not talking about something in a relationship. if this is such a difference that they can't sit with, they will avoid it until it eventually explodes. >> as for rfk jr., he said i apologize for my reference to anne frank. especially for families that suffered the holocaust horrors. cheryl hines liking it but saying while we love each other we differ on many issues. look at your own life values. what can you compromise on, what can't you, and if you need help, there's always couples therapy which is especially popular in this social and political climate. >> you should go before you need to go. i mean, it also -- politics sometimes isn't important to a lot of people. and so if it's something that is very low on the scale for you, then maybe you can overlook a lot of things, but even when

time now for "this happened", starting with a viral video that's giving us chills. >> even after we climbed a skyscraper, the driver of this car makes what ends up being a 26-point turn on the edge of a cliff. >> if you look closely he rolled those back wheels just over the edge and completed the turn around in under two minutes. >> it does beg the obvious question, why didn't he go in reverse the whole way down or go back up the top of the hill and turn around up there. >> more questions than answers. >> i remember watching this, and i was just like, ah, i can't look away, but i also, like, ah, it was too much.
next to the workout that's out of this world, literally. this happened in space. >> a german astronaut is sharing video of his rather unusual daily workout at the international space station. the treadmill's normal, but of course there's no weight, weightlessness in space. so that harness and bungee are holding him down there. is this giving him any workout? >> i don't know because if you step on a scale, it would be like zero. astronauts spend two hours a day, six days a week exercising to prevent bone and muscle loss. okay, it is necessary. and you could lose a few pounds. >> i think i would be more of a pro-crastronaut. and speaking of out of this world, mona got to go on vacation. >> i finally got to go to africa.
