Instead of using a trophy case, Simone Biles can now store her medals on Channing Tatum

1. "My theory is that she’s so tiny that she has a harder time holding onto the ground than actually ... just going up. Because she just, I don’t know, she’s just always flying away. I think she’s got really strong toes, and [they help] her hold onto the ground." This is a thing Channing Tatum said about Simone Biles at least once on Earth, which is now widely available to the public thanks to his appearance on Ellen. Of course he was joking, but that’s still a weird thing to say — maybe it was the delivery of the joke. At least they both go to meet each other. Speaking of which ...

2. On a relatively less weird note, Ellen DeGeneres surprised Biles with a gift: In honor of her winning multiple medals in Rio, she got Biles a new storage method, which is just Channing Tatum holding her medals while standing on a podium. Between this, dominating Rio and freaking out over Zac Efron, this has been an awesome summer for Simone Biles.
