Ty Cobb “sliding” into home
Transgender wrestler Mack Beggs identifies as a male. He just won the Texas state girls title (article)
“I just witnessed my sport change,” a longtime Texas wrestling coach said moments after Beggs, a 17-year-old junior at Trinity High in Euless whose transition from girl to boy began two years ago and now includes testosterone injections, won a championship. The victory was seen as equal parts unavoidable — quick and noticeably strong, he entered the tournament unbeaten in 52 matches against girls — and contentious. The University Interscholastic League, which oversees sports in Texas public schools, ordered Beggs to continue competing in the girls’ division despite heavy uproar and a lawsuit earlier this month in a Travis County district court.

Larry Johnson: 5 Children, with 4 different women.
The Grandmama has always been known to go hard in the paint against the likes of Alonzo Mourning and Shawn Kemp, but no one would have expected his baby moms. In an attempt to get out of inevitable child support payments, L.J. “strongly encouraged” pregnant model, Laura Tate, to have an abortion back in ’97. Needless to say it didn’t work and she went public with his threats.
Charles Rodgers: 5 Children, with 4 different women.
Collarbone injuries and substance abuse issues sidelined Charles Rogers for much of his brief and unspectacular career with the Detroit Lions, but nothing was keeping this man from putting up numbers in the bedroom. Though he only lasted three years in the NFL, Rogers has fathered seven kids with multiple women. On top of that, he was charged with paying back $6.1M of his signing bonus money back to the Lions in 2010. You don’t have to be a genius to see that those numbers don’t add up to anything good.

What it’s like to box Juan Manuel Marquez
Keep in mind that Marquez is using at least 16oz gloves, packed in by extra gauze and tape. Additionally, he is known to use a set of 2 Winning NG2 knuckle guards on each hand. Those weigh about 2oz each.
So combining all the extra tape, gauze, and 2 sets of NG2s with 16oz gloves; that is at least 20oz.
Now imagine him on fight night in top shape wearing 8oz pro fight gloves with limited tape and gauze as regulations allow.
Kurt Angle vs Daniel Pruder
On the Nov. 4, 2004 episode of SmackDown, Kurt Angle had challenged contestants from WWE reality show Tough Enough to best him in the ring. The probable narrative was big, bad Olympian destroys a handful of green upstarts. Angle steamrolled through his first foe, Chris Nawrocki, breaking his ribs in the process. Daniel Puder refused to be the next victim, to accept that storyline. He proceeded to write his own. After tussling with Angle for a few moments, Puder gripped Angle’s right arm, forced it into an awkward angle and by his own admission, tried to break it. Puder said, “I caught him in a key lock, pulled him into a kimura and tried to snap his arm off.” The referee watched as Angle’s arm went further and further the wrong way. He knew he had to do something. Disaster neared. He delivered a hurried three-count despite Puder’s shoulders not being fully down on the mat. Angle hopped up and shouted at his opponent. He berated Puder who stood face to face with him, unmoving. WWE had made Angle look dominant, a master mat-wrestler. What would it have done to his credibility to have some guy the majority of fans didn’t know beat him decisively or even worse, shatter his arm? Puder did his best to turn those few seconds into a name-making opportunity.
