Want to get back at someone who parks like an a**hole?

How frustrating is it when you are trying to find parking and you see another car taking up two spaces? What about when you can’t open your car door because someone else has parked too close to you? We rarely get the chance to call out these drivers, but a new website is changing the rules.

Andy, a teacher, created youparklikeana**, a website designed to finally put an end to bad parking. The website allows you print infractions and leave these bad drivers a notice, alerting them that they’ve parked “like an a**hole.”

Andy explains to American Morning's Kiran Chetry how his site has become incredibly popular in recent weeks, and why it strikes a chord with the public.

Middle school quarterback on trick play: 'I didn't think it was going to work'

(CNN) – During Driscoll Middle School's football game over the weekend in Corpus Christi, Texas, the quarterback pulled off an incredible trick play that’s destined for the all-time highlight reel. In the middle of the game, the center handed the quarterback the ball. While holding the ball, he slowly walked forward like he was counting off yards, pacing out a penalty. But after walking behind the defensive line, he sprinted towards the end zone and scored a touchdown. Because the center had handed off the ball at the beginning of the play, the defensive line did not even know the play had started.

The video of the “penalty play” has quickly gone viral. The referees say it’s legal, but there has been mixed reaction about the play. American Morning’s John Roberts and Kiran Chetry talk to the masterminds behind the trick play, Driscoll Middle School’s eighth-grade quarterback, Jason Garza, and Assistant Coach and Offensive Coordinator, John De Los Santos.
