Five things you need to know

1. Passenger carries gun through TSA screening onto Delta flight

2. NFL playoff picture is down to 4 teams

The NFL playoffs continued over the weekend and there’s now just four teams remaining.

The winners will battle it out in the Super Bowl in Atlanta on Feb. 2.

3. Shopper banned from Walmart after drinking wine from Pringles can

A Texas woman has been banned from Walmart after a fairly ridiculous Saturday morning. She was seen at 6:30 a.m. riding around the Walmart parking lot in an electric cart and drinking wine out of a Pringles can. Although Walmart was less than impressed with her actions, hence the ban, the internet has made her out to be quite the hero.

4. ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ takes place is a number of cities

A number of major cities around the world held their annual ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ on Sunday. The popular event saw people in cities like New York, Chicago, Berlin and Toronto strip down to their undies and ride the subway. Even temperatures around freezing in certain places couldn’t stop people from taking part.

5. Chris Pratt announces his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger

Less than a year after splitting up with Anna Faris, Chris Pratt is engaged to another woman and he’s about to get himself a pretty cool father-in-law. Pratt announced his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger over social media on Sunday. While some said it was too soon after his divorce, others were quick to point out that Faris began dating another man shortly after her and Pratt split.
