Ric Flair, now 63, has been a pro wrestling legend for the past 40 years. After all this time in the business, he may have finally found an opponent that he could not pin or trap in a figure-four submission hold.
Monday, Flair called 911 to ask police to intervene in a beating he was getting from his wife. The "Nature Boy" stands 6-1 and weighs 240 pounds, but apparently is no match for his 43-year-old wife, Jacqueline Beems.
Police arrived at the couple's luxury condo in Charlotte, North Carolina and broke up the fracas.
Back in February 2010, Beems was jailed after repeatedly punching Flair in the face, while also kicking and biting him. Flair was found by the police bloody and bruised after that incident.
Jiang Xiaoshan was said to be a huge fan of England and France during the European championships. Sadly, Xiaoshan died of exhaustion after watching every game of the tournament, which began on June 8.
Because of the time difference, the games began at midnight and/or 2:30 AM in China. Jiang, 26, went 11 nights without sleep, watching games with friends and then going to work the following morning, after watching soccer all night.
After the Italy-Ireland match, Jiang went home at 5 AM, took a shower, went to sleep and never woke up. Doctors reported that alcohol and smoking, as well as sleep deprivation weakened his immune system.
Xiaoshan’s friends said he was in relatively good shape and played soccer at his university.
Interleague baseball has come to an end for the 2012 season, with the American League holding a 142-110 advantage. In 16 years of competition between the two major leagues, the AL has won the series 12 times.
There is a real power outage in California, as the three lowest power-hitting teams in baseball (through Tuesday) are the Giants (47), Dodgers (45) and Padres (38). Ironically, all of these franchises happen to play in the NL West.
Votuporanguense and Fernandopolis recently played a soccer match in the Sao Paulo (Brazil) second division state championships.
During the second half, Fernandopolis’ goalkeeper took down the striker for Votu and then all heck broke loose.
Punches and flying kicks followed (most didn't connect), but there were some injuries. Things finally calmed down, as the ref issued 11 more red cards (expulsions), including one that looked like it was meant for a riot policeman.
Kyle Ernst is the assistant golf coach at Hermantown High School, or at least he is for now.
The Hermits boy’s team recently finished second in the Minnesota state tournament, missing the top spot by only one stroke.
To console both the boy’s and girl’s teams, Ernst bought two cases of beer, one 12-pack of hard cider and a 40-ouncer at a nearby convenience store. He then brought the purchases back to where the teams were staying, organizing a beer and wine party for his teenagers.
Everyone of the drinkers present at the hotel were underage, except for the 26-year-old coach.
Later, some team members were caught drunkenly trying to buy lottery tickets at 3 AM, at a nearby Cub Foods grocery store.
