Remember the colorful Mr Charles Ramsay who helped saved Amanda Berry and the two other women from the evil Ariel Castro? Yeah, him. Well, it seems he’s been offered free burgers for the rest of his life by over a dozen Ohio restaurants. Ironically, McDonalds aint one of the restaurants, despite the enormous publicity Ramsay gave them after he had to abandoned his Big Mac to kick down the door. Friggin Ohio, the home of Bearman.
Psst An occcassional free haircut might be nice too.
While London police took
their own sweet time 20 minutes to arrive at the scene of a horrific machette and knife attack on a soldier outside the Woolwich Barracks today, a badass Cub Scout leader and mother of two confronted the attackers. Yep, this modern day hero jumped from a bus to try and shield the soldier and persuade the knife weilding attackers to put down their weapons. Mrs Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall said to the first terrorist “right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?” and he said “I would like to stay and fight.” She then went over to the second guy and said ‘well, what about you?’ Meanwhile the crowd that gathered watched in stunned silence , many capturing everything on their cellphone while tick tock, tick tock, everyone waited for police to arrive.
And the winner goes to Mark Wahlberg, this is what he said about 9/11 …
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”
Psst Wahlberg was actually was booked on one of the doomed flights but cancelled a week before.
A boxer, a singer, a legend. Lionel Rose a true Aussie hero has passed away at the age of 62. At a time when some States still weren’t allowing aborigines to vote, Rose flew to Japan to fight Japanese boxer Fighting Harada for the World Bantamweight title. He won, becoming the first Aboriginal to win a world title. On his return over 100,000 people lined the streets of Melbourne to greet their newest Australian sporting hero. Rose was made Australian of The Year. Rose was also was one of the first sporting identities to make a stand against apartheid. Offered big bucks to fight in South Africa he turned it down because he would have to go there as an honorary “white”. Rose wasn’t too bad on vocals either, recording two hit songs I Thank You and Please Remember Me in the 70′s. In 1996, Rose presented young burns-attack victim Tjandamurra O’Shane (who had been horrifically attacked) with his world-title belt, hoping to speed the youngster’s recovery. Sadly, his health deteriorated following a stroke in 2007 . RIP Lionel Rose.
