's non-existent/back-from-the-dead girlfriend Lennay Kekua was at Saturday's Coyotes-Stars game in Dallas.
Baseball lost two legends over the weekend with the deaths of longtime Orioles manager Earl Weaver
and Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial
. Here is vintage Weaver unloading venom and expletives while arguing with an umpire.
It's hard to get more unbelievable than this: A light fixture fell on a high school wrestler over the weekend, who somehow escaped with only stitches.
