Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Portuguese soccer legend Luis Figo and a team of international players put their skills to the test in zero gravity to break a Guinness World Record for a high altitude game of soccer.
The Guinness World Record attempt, organized by Mastercard, saw Figo and a team of players from around the world boarded a plane specially outfitted with an on-board soccer field and the flight took a parabolic path to simulate zero gravity for the game at 20,230 feet.
The game officially broke the Guinness World Record for highest altitude game of football (soccer) on a parabolic flight.
"Football transcends boundaries and unites people around the world. I have played in stadiums where the electric atmosphere sparks emotions that cuts across cultures and nationalities; this was the exact same experience I had playing this beautiful game at 20,000 feet above ground with a group of fearless football fanatics taking their passion for the sport to unprecedented heights," Figo said in the news release.

That's a long way to paddle
A California man became the second person to ever kayak from California to Hawaii -- a journey that took him 91 days. Cyril Derreumaux, 46, of Marin, set off from Monterey in June in his modified kayak, which included pedals and a small sleeping cabin but no motor or sail. Derreumaux's journey ended 91 days later, when he arrived in Hilo last week. The adventurer attempted the same feat last year, but ended up being rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter due to weather and equipment issues. Derreumaux said he spent about 10 hours a day paddling. "I went easy, and you need to have the right calories," he said. "I was eating 4,000 calories a day, I was making sure that I would rest sufficiently at night." Ed Gillet became the first person to successfully kayak from California to Hawaii in 1987.

World's largest bobblehead unveiled
A Pennsylvania-based store chain celebrated its 40th anniversary by breaking a Guinness World Record with a bobblehead figure measuring 16 feet, 6.73 inches high. Ollie's Bargain Outlet unveiled the giant bobblehead, made in the image of store mascot Ollie, at the chain's flagship location in Harrisburg. "For 40 years, we've been committed to offering huge deals on brand name merchandise, so we wanted to create something big to help honor our anniversary, and what better than a 16-foot bobblehead?" said Ollie's CEO and President John Swygert said in a news release. The team behind the giant bobblehead used 3D modeling, hand sculpting, carving and painting to create the fully-functional bobblehead over the course of four months.
