A US man died after winning a cockroach and worm eating contest at a Florida reptile house last week, police said.
Edward Archbold, 32, had eaten several dozen roaches and worms on Friday as part of the contest to win an exotic python.
He later began vomiting and was picked up by an ambulance in front of the shop, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.
Mr Archbold was later pronounced dead at a hospital and the medical examiner's office will be performing an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
The contest was held by Ben Siegel Reptiles, which offered different prize pythons for whoever could eat the most of different categories of bugs.

"How many giant roaches would you eat for a female ivory-ball python?" the reptile store said on a Facebook page advertising the contest.


now thats a sport.

I'd like to see a fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and the winner of the Danny García vs Zab Judah.

That and a rematch of Juan Manuel Marquez vs Manny Pacquiao.

good to see my ashes predictions a few years back are spot on but sad to see the slow death of test cricket.

Very nice, although I think they are wrong about the quiver. On the other hand, the quiver was probably a good tool for battles where you have stationary archers occupying a position and raining down arrows upon advancing enemy infantry. To put it differently, using the quiver depends more upon what the archer was supposed to do.

“ On bench behaviour –
under no circumstances should there be contact with the players, in any way,”
“Putting hands on shoulders, slapping butts, tapping them on the helmet,
NOTHING,
this can make some of the girls uncomfortable and you won’t know which ones,
so no contact,
period.”



Although not explicitly stated in the email, fist bumping or high fives are allowed, Ms. Smith said. ‘‘What we recommend, what Hockey Canada recommends, is you do a fist bump, like a high five, end of story. Not tapping kids on the head, because you tap a kid on the head, even when they’re wearing a helmet, you could conceivably give a kid a concussion,” she said.

I'm guessing it's:

White - Knight from E6 to F4
Black - probably King to G4 or G5
White - Knight from G3 to F5
Black King is trapped.

Iran beats US to win 2015 Wrestling World Cup


Iranian wrestlers overpowered the US squad competing on home soil to win the tourney.

Iran’s wrestling team managed to beat the Americans 5-3 on Sunday at the Forum in Los Angeles to win the prestigious international title for a fourth time in a row.

Behnam Ehsanpour and Meysam Mostafa Jowkar played a major part in Iran’s victory against the hosts while the American Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs once again remained an untouchable target for Iranian wrestlers at 74 kilogram.
