The actor who played Goldberg in “The Mighty Ducks” was arrested recently, and based on his mug shot, he really could use some help.
According to TMZ Sports, actor Shaun Weiss was arrested early Sunday morning on public intoxication charges in Oroville, Calif. They say he was released and not cited after being held in the drunk tank for a few hours.
In his mug shot, Weiss looks aged, sleepy, and malnourished.

Weiss has been going through a rough stretch. Last year he was sentenced to 150 days in jail for his second petty theft arrest. He only spent 12 days in jail due to overcrowding. He was then arrested less than a week after his release from jail due to possession of meth.
In addition to his role as Goldberg in “The Mighty Ducks,” Weiss starred in “Heavy Weights” in the 1990s. He also appeared in TV shows such as “Freaks and Geeks,” “Boy Meets World,” “The Tony Danza Show,” “Mr. Rhodes,” “Here and Now,” and “The King of Queens.” His most recent acting credits came in 2016, according to his IMDB page.

The Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers were visited by a feathered friend during their game in Detroit on Wednesday.
During the top of the sixth inning, a goose (yes a goose) made its way into Comerica Park. It landed on the infield near second base momentarily before returning to flight. It landed in the outfield and took off again, all while being chased by a stadium employee. The goose took flight again and appeared to be in “cruise control” before colliding with a video scoreboard before falling down into a row of seats.

Hopefully the goose was okay after the collision. At least it didn’t interfere with any players unlike the rogue eagle in Minnesota.

The three finalists for the “Jeopardy!” College Championship coordinated some basketball-themed motions during their introductions on Thursday’s show.
Take a look as the three contestants all pretend to play basketball during their intros:

Brown University freshman Dhruv Gaur seemed to be the one who coordinated the effort.

As awesome as those intros were, it’s even better with the NBA on NBC theme song in the background.

We’re just pleased to see some sports effort on Jeopardy!, especially after a previous NFL disaster on the show.
The Denver Post is getting hit with some friendly fire over a recent error that they made in a feature about Coors Field, the home of the Colorado Rockies.
The feature, which was printed in the Friday edition of the paper, went viral after readers noticed that an image of Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies, was incorrectly used instead of the actual Coors Field.

On Saturday, the University of Denver’s men’s lacrosse team jumped at their opportunity to tweet a funny reference to the error. The team was actually in Pennsylvania for a match against Villanova over the weekend (which they won 22-6) and passed by Citizens Bank Park on the way back to the airport. You can probably guess where they went with the reference.

Granted, this wasn’t the most savage shot that the paper took over the error. But the fact that it came from a fellow Denver enterprise probably stings a bit.
A stunt by a UCF student led to the evacuation of a building on the university’s campus on Wednesday, and of course, there is a tie-in to LeBron James.
During a class held in the UCF Business Administration building on Wednesday, a man stood up and tossed powder into the air. The man was replicating LeBron James’ pregame chalk powder toss, and also yelled one of James’ infamous lines. “I’m taking my talents elsewhere. I’m going to Miami,” the man said, according to witnesses.
Not knowing the nature of the substance, UCF Police Chief Richard Beary said the matter was treated as a hazardous materials situation.
“We had an individual throw powder in one of the classrooms. We think it was going to be some type of stunt, like a LeBron James stunt, but unfortunately with the current threat situation the way it is our fire partners said we needed to treat it as a hazmat situation,” UCF Police Chief Richard Beary told News 6.
The UCF Police Department said the suspect was wearing a white LeBron James No. 6 Miami Heat jersey. UCF Police put out this tweet about the suspect:
Witnesses say the suspect is wearing this jersey. He is described as a 6'2, white male with blonde hair.
Please call 911 if spotted. pic.twitter.com/G5UCa4bXKt

Thankfully, the substance was later determined to be baby formula and not something dangerous. However, exercising caution was the right decision, which included evacuating the building.
Though the chalk toss was a famous part of LeBron’s pregame routine, he stopped doing it in late 2014. Apparently the tradition is still alive for some.
