Something very concerning happened after the U.S. beat Mexico 3-2 in the Concacaf Nations League Final on Sunday night in Denver.
CBS Sports was running its postgame show live on set from Empower Field at Mile High, Denver, Colo. In the middle of the show, there was a bizarre incident. A fan ran behind the TV hosts and leaped over a railing.
Swiss motorcycle rider Jason Dupasquier died on Saturday in a crash at a qualifying event. He was 19.
Dupasquier was racing in the Moto3 qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix in Florence, Italy, when he was involved in a crash with fellow riders Ayumu Sasaki and Jeremy Alcoba. Dupasquier appeared to fall and was then hit by his own motorcycle and Sasaki’s motorcycle, according to The Associated Press.
Dupasquier was treated for his injuries on the track for about 30 minutes before being airlifted to a hospital in Florence, where he was pronounced dead.
“Despite the best efforts of circuit medical staff and all those subsequently attending to the Swiss rider, the hospital has announced that Dupasquier has sadly succumbed to his injuries,” MotoGP said in a statement.
Dupasquier was in his second season in the Moto3 World Championship.
Former Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney is recovering from surgery.
Maroney posted on her Instagram profile this week that she was recovering from a surgery. She shared a photo from what appeared to be a hospital bed and said, “I think my surgery was a success. On to recovery.”
McKayla Maroney is recovering after a bout with kidney stones.
The former gold medal-winning Olympian revealed on her Instagram Story during the week that she went to the emergency room because of severe back and stomach pain. She said she was vomiting as well. A CT scan revealed the stones.
The 25-year-old shared an update on her Instagram Story Friday to say that she was home from the hospital.
“Unfortunately nothing has changed, just on pain management,” she said of her status.
Maroney gained fame for her role on the “Fierce Five” at the 2012 London Games. She helped the U.S. win gold in the team event and she won silver on the vault. The gymnast retired in 2016 and has recently gotten into singing. She also enjoys teasing her fans on social media with videos.
The 49-year-old rose to fame in the 1990s when she became the No. 1-ranked female pool player in the world. At the time, ESPN would often air pool events, and she became one of the faces of the game.
Lee revealed in an interview that she got her nickname because friends said she would lure people to the table and then eat them alive.
Lee was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was 12 and has had numerous surgeries. She has also lived in constant pain since her first surgery. Lee’s agent says the former pool star likely didn’t notice the ovarian cancer because she is so used to living in pain.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeanette Lee’s family at this time while she fights her cancer diagnosis. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the well being of her young daughters at https://t.co/Kr3e8wbsxn. #wpbaladies#blackwidowpool
Jose Canseco is trying to turn the tables after being accused by Dave Portnoy of taking a dive in a recent fight.
Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, put on a “Rough N’ Rowdy” pay-per-view fight show on Friday night. The headline event on the card was a bout between Canseco and one of the characters on popular podcast “Pardon My Take,” Billy Football.
Canseco’s fight with Billy Football didn’t last more than 10 seconds. Canseco went down quickly and the ref stepped in.
Portnoy immediately called out Canseco for taking a dive.
Jose 100% took a dive. We paid half up front and he got double if he won. We thought that would ensure he’d fight. We were wrong.
Portnoy explained the pay structure for the fight.
So here is how @JoseCanseco got paid last night. 50k guarantee. He got 50k more if he won. He also had a rev share if we broke our record for PPV buys.We shattered it.Get ready to puke. Jose made over 1 million dollars for 5 seconds last night. I don’t feel bad for him anymore. *
Trump is both beloved and despised by millions, so the hat is a symbol of great polarization. Needless to say, it produced some extreme reactions, especially when you consider Simpson is an alleged double-murderer.
Is it sad that THAT is what made me lose respect for OJ?
“I did an anti-bullying talk at a school and it was right after Logan Paul filmed a guy committing suicide in this forest,” Spiranac said on her iHeartRadio show. “It was a huge controversy and I was asked what I thought about it.
“I said, ‘If you have a large following of a younger viewing audience, you have to be careful with the content that you put out there.’ And I think he should have been punished more by YouTube or his sponsors or there needed to be some form of consequence bigger than what he got.
“And I ended up receiving death threats by all of these kids in that high school, that they were defending Logan Paul, and so ever since then I have hated him.”
Spiranac also said she couldn’t believe people want to see Paul and Mayweather in the exhibition. Paul and Mayweather are aiming to shatter pay-per-view records, but we have lots of doubts about them being able to generate so many buys.
Spiranac is right. It’s hard to believe people would want to watch Paul and Mayweather in a fight that doesn’t count, especially when we know it’s just for money. But some people will.
