    Breaking News! "Macho Man Randy Savage killed in a car accident!

    I just found out that Macho man Randy Savage suffered a heart attack at the wheel of his car and died down in florida the other day. His wife Lynn was with him and she was injured but not severely. I remember watching him back in the 80's and he was quite an excellent "sports entertainer".

    my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
    R.I.P. Randy.

    did any of you know that he once was a catcher for the braves orginization before he became a professional wrestler?

    right you are Jim. plus, he was actually married to the beautiful Miss Elizebeth. he was great on the mic and his high flying skills were legendary. he took his share of bumps in his day.

    professional wrestling doesn't come up much on a sports board, so it gives me the opportunity to mention that pro wrestlers all belong to the STUNT MANS' UNION. kind of signifies how really fake it is.

    Vince McMahon will shed a fake tear I'm sure.  He uses them them up and tosses them aside.

    Behind the celebrity is human flesh and blood. Very sad moment for his family. I enjoyed his wrestling theartre work, he was entertaining. Too young to go like that, not that any age is too old.

    nah hammah, you're off base with this one detective.  Babe may be a provocateur of the worst sort, but he's actually smart.  i don't get that vibe at all from yazzer.

    Famed wrestler Macho Man Randy Savage died in a car accident Friday May 20, 2011 in Tampa, Fla. He's seen here in Cambridge for the Harvard Lampoon Real Man of the Year ceremonies in 1998. (John Blanding / Globe file)

    In case you missed it, TMZ is reporting that wrestler Macho Man Randy Savage died in a car accident today.

    Back in 2005, I was assigned to cover the NLCS between the Astros and Cardinals. Two memories from that series stick out to this day:

    1. Albert Pujols hit a home run in Game 5 that sent the series back to St. Louis. I've never seen a ball hit so hard. It sucked all the life out of Minute Maid Park in an instant.

    2. The next day I met the Macho Man.

    I was walking from my hotel in St. Louis to old Busch Stadium on Oct. 18. The teams had a workout that day before Game 6. About two blocks from the park, there was the Macho Man on the sidewalk coming my way.

    He had on a red cowboy hat, big sunglasses and a Cardinals jacket. He played in the minors for the Cards and was still a big fan as it turned out.

    In my job, you learn not to get too excited when encountering famous people. It's not cool to be a journalist and get all silly when Willie Mays walks by. I got on an elevator once with Muhammad Ali at the 1996 Olympics and managed not to act stupid.

    But the Macho Man? I had to talk to him. I wasted thousands of hours as a kid watching wrestling and nobody was more entertaining than the Macho Man. OK, maybe George "The Animal" Steele. But Macho Man was a close second.

    Thankfully, he was cool. You don't dress like that unless you want people to notice, I suppose. We talked some baseball, I asked about the lovely Elizabeth and we parted ways.

    "Do your thing, brother," he said. "Ooooooh, yeah."

    Stupid, right? But it was something I'll never forget.

    well space, I don't consider myself a detective, however, I do have my moles, if you catch my drift. I'll just leave it at that.

    and true to form Hogan lays this load of cr@p on us...... Hulk Hogan had these comments regarding Macho Man on his official twitter page"I'm completely devastated, after over 10 years of not talking with Randy, we've finally started to talk and communicate.""He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just pray that he's happy and in a better place and we miss him."

    "We miss him a lot. I feel horrible about the ten years of having no communication. This was a tough one."
