VIA: Less than a month ago, the sports world celebrated Craig Sager’s return to the hardwood to resume his sideline reporting duties for the NBA after a battle with leukemia. This weekend, though, Sager’s son revealed some pretty awful news – his father’s cancer has returned.
It’s always awful news to learn that someone is battling cancer, but Sager’s re-diagnosis is especially heartbreaking considering Craig’s long journey through his recovery and how quickly the leukemia came back. Hopefuly Sager victoriously emerge once again and keep a clean bill of health for years to come.
Best wishes, Craig…we’re rooting for you. Get well soon.
A’s Pitcher Was Told To Fill Out A Rental Application Resume For His Dog, Leads To Best Dog Resume Ever
VIA: As a resident of the Bay Area, I can tell you that rent applications tend to get a little crazy around here. Combine that with the area’s love of dogs and stories like this are not unusual.
Still, when you’re a pitcher for the Oakland A’s, I’d assume that you’d get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to your application process.
Sean Doolittle found out the hard way that there are no shortcuts when it comes to renting in the Bay. One landlord asked Sean and his girlfriend, Eireann Dolan, to fill out a resume for their dog Stella.
So, Dolan put together a fantastic resume for Stella Dolan Doolittle – a very good girl.
Check it out below:
Highlights include “Education: DePaws University: Grades K-9″ (because who wouldn’t want to attend DePaws University? No one, that’s who) and Stella’s skills which are “lying about myself on resumes” and “standing on top of another dog while we both wear a trenchcoat and try to obtain a bank loan.”
Don’t know about you, but Stella seems fairly qualified to rent an apartment in the Bay Area.
VIA: Triple H suffered a nasty leg injury during his WrestleMania 31 match with Sting. His upper left leg gained visible purple and red bruising as the match went on, with the depth of bruising getting more and more aggravated.
Early speculation was leaning towards some sort of muscle tear, with Hunter soldiering on through the pain. He’s had a history of these injuries and the leg had appeared fine at the start of the match. By the end, it was obvious that something was badly wrong.
However, later in the show, Triple H emerged for a segment against The Rock and Ronda Rousey. He was now wearing a suit and appered to be moving around fine. He even bumped for Rousey.
As such, the bruising is probably attributable to a less serious injury. If he had suffered a major injury, he would have struggled to take that Rousey bump.
Perhaps it was just a case of bad bruising and Hunter’s body not being used to the ring work. It could also be the fact that he was carrying too much muscle, having gone to great extremes in the gym to get in ring shape. At 45 years old, Hunter may want to consider the way he is pushing his body.
In what Sting told the Associated Press is likely his last match, he put Triple H over, in what was a shock result. The WCW legend waited all this time to join the WWE and then came in just to lose to Triple H.
The WWE veteran is now strongly placed to head into a main event match with The Rock at WrestleMania 32.
