After the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, one of the largest American flags damaged during the attacks continued to fly above the resulting wreckage during the clean-up efforts.
Seven years later, that flag, dubbed the National 9/11 Flag, was sewn back together by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, and has also been stitched by World War II veterans, survivors of the Ft. Hood, Texas rampage, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s family.
During the eighth inning of Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday was taken out of the lineup when he got the most unusual of sports injuries? What happened? Well, a moth flew into his right ear and wouldn’t come out.
“He had a moth fly into his ear, deep in his ear,” manager Tony La Russa said.
American skier Robert ‘Sandy’ Vietze was booted from the US Ski Team on Friday when it was discovered he did something pretty unspeakable on a JetBlue flight on Tuesday night.
After a weeklong training camp in Oregon with the US Ski Team, the 18-year-old Vietze apparently downed eight alcoholic beverages before boarding a redeye to New York’s JFK airport. During the flight, he got up from his seat, stumbled a few rows down the aisle, and commenced to urinate on an 11-year-old girl.
Here’s a look at some notable birthdays being celebrated today:

During the second inning of a Friday-night game between the Washington Nationals and the Colorado Rockies, Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond hit a hard line drive toward the mound. Rockies rookie pitcher, Juan Nicasio, had only enough time to turn his head before the ball bounced off it, dropping him to the ground and breaking his neck.
He underwent surgery at the Denver Health Medical Center for a fracture of the C-1 vertebrae and remains in serious but stable condition.
When Pittsburgh Steelers secondary coach Ray Horton left for a new job as defensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals, he had quite a surprise for Maurice “Mo” Matthews, who works in the Steelers’ cafeteria.
