Which is worth more: The painting on the left, or the entire payroll of the 2013 Miami Marlins? That is the question South Florida now knows the answer to and it’s not because they are art lovers. Earlier this week, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria sold the painting (Albert Gaicometti‘s 1954 portrait of his brother Diego) for $32.6 million; he spent about $39 million paying his team last season. No wonder he’s so popular among baseball fans!

A fan at last night’s Blackhawks-Jets game actually snatched the helmet off a player during a stoppage in play. Winnipeg defenseman Adam Pardy found himself nearly in the stands after a pane of glass fell along the boards during the third period. A scrum ensued and a fan reached out, snagging the helmet and putting it on, and pumped his fist to the crowd.

Muhammad Ali fought this fight Cassius Clay. The photo is the END of ROUND 2, technically a knock down that was truncated by the end of the round. The fight was STOPPED by the referee at 1:51 in round 3, officially scored as a TKO -- Cleveland Williams had been knocked down 4 times and was completely dominated in the fight.
