Another Guy Worthy of Nomination for the Darwin Award

Those wacky Euros. I wonder if this idiot ever heard of Timothy Treadwell, the Grizzly Man?

BELGRADE, Serbia (Reuters) -- A 23-year old Serb was found dead and half-eaten in the bear cage of Belgrade Zoo at the weekend during the annual beer festival.

The man was found naked, with his clothes lying intact inside the cage. Two adult bears, Masha and Misha, had dragged the body to their feeding corner and reacted angrily when keepers tried to recover it.

"There's a good chance he was drunk or drugged. Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage," (side note: NO SHIT) zoo director Vuk Bojovic told Reuters.

Local media reported that police found several mobile phones inside the cage, as well as bricks, stones and beer cans.

Motorcyclist dies in crash
25-year-old man traveling in excess of 100 mph, witnesses say

By Mary Kincy Benefield, Reporter

A Russellville man died Sunday after an early-morning collision with another vehicle at the intersection of East Parkway Drive and North Greenwich Avenue. Witnesses estimate motorcyclist Matthew Taylor, 25, was traveling southbound on North Greenwich Avenue at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour shortly before 1 a.m. when he skidded through an intersection and struck the side of a 2005 Buick sedan.

According to witness statements taken from four men attending a party on East E Street near the scene, Taylor, who had been at the party drinking, witnesses stated, was showing his motorcycle to a group in attendance at the party when he started the bike, revved the engine, and told the group to “watch this.” He then drove the motorcycle approximately three blocks south on Greenwich Avenue before turning around and accelerating back past the house, witnesses said, after which he attempted to stop but “slid through the stop sign and struck the passenger side of the vehicle.”

Taylor was transported to Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1:29 a.m. The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.

Congratulations, Michael

Anyone doubting that Michael Irvin deserves to be in the Hall of Fame is clueless. I think it's ridiculous how people start yapping about his off-the-field issues, but I never heard anyone say Lawrence Taylor, the greatest LB to ever play the game, should have been kept out. Lawrence Taylor's off-the-field behavior makes Irvin look like Billy Graham.

The following clip is an example of the types of plays Irvin made for 10 years. A two hour movie could be made from his career highlight reel. I also like this clip because it illustrates the type of player Troy Aikman was. Several idiots also had arguments for why they thought Aikman should not have been inducted last year.

I plan to make the trip to Canton three years from now when Emmitt Smith gets inducted.
