In baseball, the Houston Astros have just been hammered for getting caught stealing signs. Field manager and general manager both suspended for the year, and subsequently sacked immediately

Wow

The Red Sox followed as their now manager, Alex Cora, was the bench coach for the Astros and it looks like basically he set it all up. Now hes with the red Sox and they've fired him now too

Interesting times ahead, the Sox in particular could toil now

This is a massive massive story this side of the Atlantic. He's an iconic sportsman. Just last night LeBron passed him as 3rd highest scorer in NBA history.




I remember when Payne Stewart died it was a big shock but this seems an even bigger one.

One of my favourite players, and a great entertainer. Sad.

Helicopters, they're generally very safe however the more you use them the more the odds shorten. Was one of the reasons I changed careers, as after 1500hrs, in a very remote dangerous environment I just din't fancy it anymore. Spectacular way to see the great outdoors mind.

I’m genuinely gutted about this, one of my heroes growing up. Got a Lakers tap with his name on it from a holiday in the US when I was 12 - it was basically the one thing on my shopping list while I was out there Sad
