Sean Haire, known as Sean O'Haire in WCW and WWE, reportedly died Monday at age 43. Haire debuted in WCW in 2000, and he was immediately pushed as a future star. He was paired with the Natural Born Thrillers, a group of young, physically gifted wrestlers, and in the year before WCW folded, he won the tag team titles three times. Haire quickly gained attention from fans for both his strength and athleticism. For a wrestler who was billed at 6 feet 6 and 270 pounds, he could move like a cruiserweight, and hit what might be the best-looking Swanton Bomb in the history of the business.

Ever since the day after WrestleMania, when "Fandangoing" became a thing, we knew that when WWE returned to the United Kingdom just weeks later, that it would all resume. Sure, the Fandango theme singing craze took a dip in between, but it's genesis was truly fans in the United Kingdom who made the trip to WrestleMania. So it comes as no surprise that the singing and dancing was out in full force on WWE Raw. I think WWE did a great job with the trend and weaving it into the show -- from using the theme song as a distraction for Chris Jericho in his match against Dolph Ziggler to having Fandango match up against William Regal (perhaps one of the only guys on the roster who could shift the crowd's attention)

With Old School RAW coming to Baltimore on Monday, I got a chance to talk to a WWE Superstar that is constantly referred to as “old school," Antonio Cesaro.

Q: How would you characterize your 2013 in the WWE? A: Well, I started the year as the United States champion, and now I am not the United States champion.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- After two of his teammates were involved in a shooting early Friday, Miami quarterback Kyle Wright knew the topic would be inevitable as reporters gathered around him yesterday at the ACC Football Kickoff at the Sawgrass Marriott. Junior safety Willie Cooper was shot in the buttocks outside of the off-campus house he shares with teammates Brandon Meriweather and Ryan Moore. Police said Meriweather returned fire with a legally obtained semiautomatic pistol. "At least he had something to protect himself," Wright said of Meriweather's gun. "He didn't bring a knife to a gunfight."

A recent development in WWE's storytelling seems more like lyrics from a early 1990s hip hop song than anything we've seen in recent years: tag teams, back again. WWE fans have been clamoring for the revitalization of a tag team division for months, if not years, and their wish finally seems to be coming true. While Kofi Kingston and R-Truth did a good job alongside Primo and Epico and the Prime Time Players to rebuild a solid foundation, it has been since Kane and Daniel Bryan won the titles that the focus has become clear.

Terrell Stoglin poured in 25 points Sunday during Maryland's critical 87-80 victory over N.C. State , stealing a little bit of the spotlight from Grievis Vasquez, who was on hand at Comcast Center to see his jersey go into the rafters. Of course Stoglin didn't take down the Wolfpack all by himself. Jordan Williams scored 26 points and pulled down eight rebounds, but we have come to expect strong performances like that from the sublime sophomore big man. Those two, along with a little help from Dino Gregory, helped keep the Terps' at-large hopes from flat-lining with another ACC loss.

Tag-team wrestling has become a lost art in the WWE. There was a period where tag-team wrestling dominated the landscape, and duos like the Hardy brothers, the Dudleys and Edge and Christian would steal any show they were on. Those days are long gone. Now, fans just ask for there to be some semblance of attention and focus given to the tag-team division. And in recent weeks, there has been some sense of promise on the horizon, as WWE has been reminding fans there are more than two tag teams on the roster.

Mark McLemore and Brad Pennington are a most unlikely pair, what with Pennington moving and talking a mile a minute, while the unflappable McLemore remains way too cool.But they teamed up long enough last night to give the Orioles a 6-2 win and a three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers.Pennington earned his fourth save of the year the hard way, shutting down the Tigers for three innings. He didn't allow a hit, walked two and struck out four. In the seventh inning he escaped from a bases-loaded, one-out jam."

Joe Morgan says that he and Bob Costas have yet to do their best work as a baseball announcing team. If they manage that feat during this week's American League Championship Series telecasts, sports television may not get much better than what we're going to hear.The ALCS will effectively serve as Costas' and Morgan's first extended work together as a duo because Bob Uecker, suffering back ailments, decided earlier this year not to work NBC telecasts.With only two men occupying the booth, rather than three, the movement of the telecast should be more to each of their liking, which, in turn, should make for a better broadcast.

Before entering Hammond High School in August, Jamani Nelson was a "C" student who hated math. Now math is the 14-year-old freshman's favorite subject, and he looks forward to the challenge of high school assessment tests. He attributes the transformation to an initiative called co-teaching, which has drawn attention from educators around the state and nationally. "At first, it was a rocky start," Nelson said. "Now I'm getting B's and A's." The class pairs a general-education and a special-education teacher to instruct a mixture of general- and special-education students.

After the Ravens officially designated Pro Bowl cornerback Chris McAlister as their franchise player yesterday, the sides reached their first agreement: Let's wait to see how the market unfolds. With no premier cornerback signing a long-term deal over the past five years, the sticking point in negotiations between the Ravens and McAlister has been defining the market value for a young shutdown cover man. But the standstill talks with McAlister could be accelerated if new contracts are completed with cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson, both of whom also were given the franchise tag by their teams.
