Todd Marinovich, an ex-NFL quarterback, just had major surgery on his throwing hand.
That hand also just happens to be his painting hand now that he's retired!
Drug addiction ruined his football career and he almost lost everything, but he got clean and became a pretty successful artist!
Though things almost crashed down when he woke up with no feeling in his left hand one morning.

As we previously mentioned, Jerry "The King" Lawler, a WWE announcer and semi-retired wrestler, had a heart attack live on air!
He was immediately taken to the hospital where he was treated and his life was saved.
Well the WWE just released a statement that said:
"Jerry 'The King' Lawler has been released from a Montreal medical facility and will be heading home in the next several days. We continue to wish Jerry all the best, and we look forward to him returning to WWE in the future."
We absolutely wish him the best too!
He seems to have made such a fast recovery, it's amazing that he's out of the hospital already.
We think maybe it's time to go from "semi-retired" to fully retired wrestler.

Unlike the Maryland winners

If he wouldn't have been fired, it looks like health reasons would have forced Joe Paterno to retire this year.
The sick former Penn State football coach has been admitted into the hospital again. His family hopes the stay is brief, but Paterno was hospitalized for minor complications from his ongoing lung cancer treatments just a month after fracturing his pelvis.
Things aren't all bad for the all-time winningest football coach in NCAA Division I history. PSU officials revealed on Thursday that Paterno is still getting paid despite being relieved of his coaching duties last fall after the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal broke.
A statement from Chairman Steve Garban and Vice Chairman John Surma read:
"Coach Paterno remains employed by the university as a tenured faculty member. The details of his retirement are being worked out and will be made public when they are finalized. Generally speaking, the university intends to honor the terms of his employment contract and is treating him financially as if he had retired at the end of the 2011 football season."
We hope this guy's health starts to turn around soon and he's able to beat this cancer! Feel better soon, Joe!
