NCAA March Madness is here. For anyone that doesn't know, it's the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

Biggest upset ever:
University of Maryland-Baltimore County defeated the nation's top ranked Virginia Cavaliers. For the first time in tournament history and after 136 meetings of #1 vs #16 seed teams, the #16 won against #1.
This is a rollerblading edit, but a it's quite a sad one. Or, you could say that it is a celebration of life. This is the final edit of Keaton Newsom, who tragically passed away during the filming of this section in a non rollerblading accident. He was only 30 years old. Keaton was a sponsored rider for both Razors skates and Ground Control frames.
Taking the footage they did have for the part and some childhood videos, this final tribute was made to him. R.I.P. Keaton.
There's also a gofundme campaign to repair/build a skatepark in Keaton's name.
So yesterday IĀ found this video. I thought it was interesting.
Former WWE superstar Kane, aka Glenn Jacobs, is now mayor of Knox County in Tennessee.
Heavyweight boxer Curtis Harper was disqualified for exiting the ring after the opening bell.

As bizarre as that is, Oliver McCall was disqualified for refusing to fight and was crying in a World Heavyweight title fight in his second match against Lennox Lewis (he knocked out Lewis in their first match, winning a World Heavyweight title).
Brittain's largest boxing star Anthony Joshua retained his heavyweight boxing titles against dangerous Russian Alexander Povetkin by way of knockout.

Now I'm waiting on Deontay Wilder to defend his heavyweight title against Tyson Fury.
Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury for the WBC World Heavy height boxing title ended in a draw!

And Fury called Anthony Joshua out, said he and Wilder are the two greatest fighters in the world, Wilder agreed, and there's supposed to be a rematch.

Imo, Fury has to be the toughest man on te planet to be able to get up from from two knockdowns by Wilder.

Former major league players Luis Valbuena and Jose Castillo were killed in a car crash caused by highway bandits who then robbed them, officials said Friday.
