Good Things: Elvis Presley's birthday, Eddie 'The Eagle'

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Did you know today would have been Elvis Presley's 75-th birthday? Well the king is being honored in the nation's capital as only royalty would. The National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC has just opened a new exhibit featuring pictures, paintings, a bronze bust and even a lunch box of the Rock-n-Roll icon.

And the Olympic torch continued its trek across Canada carried by an Olympic legend most people have forgotten, Eddie "The Eagle". Back at 1988 Calgary Olympics, Eddie Edwards competed in ski jumping and came in dead last place. However he did break the British ski jumping record, that's because no Brit before him ever competed in the event. Eddie said that he was happy to be doing something safer for the Olympics.
