Water Cooler: Pop culture fun, June 30


Here are a few things in pop culture that caught our eye last week.

■ Pittsburgh Steelers great Terry Bradshaw headlines at The Mirage. As long as he doesn’t enlist Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson as backup dancers.

■ Aerialist Nik Wallenda walks across a gorge near the Grand Canyon on a 2-inch cable. Is “sympathetic vertigo” a valid medical thing?

■ The Electric Daisy Carnival wraps up another run in Las Vegas. And the makers of fuzzy boots again thank their lucky stars for whoever it was that decided fuzzy boots-and-bikinis constitute a fashion statement.

■ The family of Lorne Greene puts up for auction memorabilia from the TV series “Bonanza.” The unopened bottles of “Little Joe Cartwright’s Nevada Frontier Shampoo and Conditioner” should be a steal.
