The one about Griese and his dog shouldn't even make this list. Anyone who owns a dog has had this happen to them at some point, so it's not that unusual. But I did notice that on that short list there were two former Cubs in Sosa and Hill, and a third mentioned in the thread in Mulholland. Is there a trend here???
I'm pretty sure it was clint barmes, the rookie for the rockies who was having an unbelievable year, who broke his collar bone carrying groceries up to his apartment, ruining his season, sidlining him for a few months. I'm not positive it was barmes, so if I'm wrong, someone please correct me.
A man struck in the head by a shot put during practice for the U.S. track and field championships on Wednesday has died.
USA Track and Field, the sport's governing body, released a brief statement Thursday saying it "is profoundly saddened by the tragic shot put accident that took the life of Paul Suzuki on Wednesday."
The accident occurred about 4:15 p.m. at the Home Depot Center, where the national championships are scheduled Thursday through Sunday.
A doctor on site rushed to the Suzuki's aid, as did athletic trainers. Emergency medical technicians from the fire department arrived a few minutes later and rushed the victim to a hospital, where he died a short time later.
The Los Angeles Times said Suzuki, 77, of Los Angeles, was a former landscape maintenance worker who had officiated at local track meets for decades.
"He did this for fun," his daughter Sheila Suzuki Hubbard told the newspaper. "He retired a long time ago."
