Well, that could mess with your fantasy football draft this year.
State and local police spent hours at the home of NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez of the New England Patriots on Tuesday night as another group of officers searched an industrial park about a mile away where a body was discovered the day before. Police at the scene and prosecutors would not comment on the actions while Sports Illustrated, citing an unidentified source, reported that Hernandez was not believed to be a suspect in what was being treated as a possible homicide. Police had spoken with Hernandez, the magazine said. Sports Illustrated reported that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, Mass., said the SUV was registered to “Enterprise” and investigators wanted to analyze it for fingerprints. The Associated Press could not independently confirm the reports. No cause of death had been released for the body found about 5:30 p.m. Monday.
Kenneth Lind, Winner of the WSOP Senior Event – 2013
Well, the first question always is: is poker a sport?
If they cover it live on ESPN, then it’s a sport in my book. And there are also a lot of great characters in poker, like any great sport. You also have to have some great underdog stories like that of 68-year-old Kenneth Lind, a retired Army officer and great grandfather. Since he retired, Lind has had some extra time to play poker in his Layton, Utah home. Apparently A LOT of extra time. So his poker buddies egged him on telling him he should enter the World Series of Poker Seniors Event. (Likely secretly hoping he’d get his ass kicked and come home a humbler, but wiser, poker player.)
So Lind went to Las Vegas this week, paid his money to enter the WSOP poker tournament and made it through the first round. Then into the second round, then the final table–as the oldest participant -and finally ended up winning the whole thing, collecting a record $634,809 in prize money. To top things off (and probably rub it in to the guys at home) Lind had his name being added to the famous Golden Eagletrophy.
Probably not what his Army buddies had hoped for when the told Lind to get into the tournament this year. Now they’re really going to hear it from him.
