Macho Man RIP

Earlier today the Macho Man, Randy Savage, had a heart attack while driving his Jeep in Florida, he crossed the median and hit a tree. Randy died due to his injuries but his wife, who was a passenger, survived with only minor injuries.

 Many of us are old enough to remember his wrestling career, mainly with WWF and WCW, but how many people knew he began his professional career playing baseball? He was a catcher for the St Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds minor league affiliates between 1971-1974 before quitting baseball and following in his father's footsteps in to professional wrestling.

 He also had a little acting career on the side, you may be familiar with his portrayal of Bone Saw McGraw in Spiderman, the wrestler who will take on all comers for 3 minutes.

Ooh Yeah Randy Savage... You will be missed!
