Brad Halsey, a former major league pitcher, has died at the young age of 33.

He apparently died in a "recreational climbing accident" near New Braunfels, Texas — his home.

The local sheriff's office is investigating his death and working with a medical examiner. We assume that's to confirm the accidental nature of this tragedy.

Everybody. The answer is everybody knows how dangerous making snake soup is. Even if you don’t know what snake soup is, c’mon. It’s called snake soup.

Unfortunately, a chef in Southern China took the risk and paid the price while cooking a cobra in his restaurant last week.

Boxer Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter Has Passed Away At Age 76

rubin hurricane carter dead prostate cancer

The world has lost a true fighter!

Boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter passed away at his home in Toronto on Sunday at 76 years old, after battling prostate cancer.

Carter spent nearly 20 years in jail after he was wrongfully convicted of murder in the 1960s, making him a prominent figure in the fight for racial inequalities. He was convicted twice for a triple homicide, despite the fact that no eyewitnesses identified him. In 1995, the case was overturned and he was free!

The boxer’s life was also made into a movie, The Hurricane, which gave Denzel Washington an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Carter.

Our thoughts are with everyone who had the opportunity to know him!

Rubin's inspiration lives on!
