Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Harrison Ford were trying to ‘out prank’ each other on the set of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. One of the more memorable pranks involved using the masks that the stunt-doubles would wear during filming. Phoebe would wear the mask of Harrison Ford and hide in his trailer so she could scare him. It worked and apparently he said, ‘GET THE HELL OUT OF MY TRAILER.’ While blinking three times. Then, 20 minutes later, Harrison Ford snuck up on Phoebe Waller-Bridge wearing a mask of HER face – LINK

The Blues selected Slovakian forward Dalibor Dvorsky with the No. 10 pick, a 6-1, 205-pound player that lives in the interior at the net-front, and a prospect that was thought of as unlikely to reach St. Louis after the first nine picks of the evening. The selection was the Blues’ highest since they took Alex Pietrangelo at No. 4 overall in 2008. It was the first forward that the Blues took in the top 10 since 1988, when St. Louis drafted Rod Brind’Amour with the ninth pick. Otto Stenberg, taken with pick number No. 25 by St. Louis, and Theo Lindstein, taken at No. 29 by the Blues, played together in Sweden and have been friends for a half-dozen years. They roomed together at the under-18 World Championship, and suddenly they were drafted to the same team. Stenberg was talking to reporters when he heard about his buddy getting picked and said this..“Is Lindstein picked by St. Louis?” Stenberg asked. “Oh, that’s fantastic. We are really good friends and same with Dalibor. We played together in some tournaments when we were younger. I know him really, really well.” – LINK
