With some soccer hooligans all over the world often showing what animals they can be on occasion, it could be a recipe for disaster in England on May 24 when Leicester City of the Premier League plans on handing out free beer to the fans. It’s surprising that the local police will allow it, but thankfully each fan will just be given one free beer. Those who aren’t yet drinking age will receive a free bottle of water.
Leicester City is celebrating during their season finale match at home since they staved off relegation a week earlier with a 0-0 draw in Sunderland. The club, which was promoted from the English Championship League last season, is guaranteed at least one more year in the top tier of English football. They achieved this by winning six and drawing one of their last eight matches for 19 out of a possible 24 points.
Cuban-born infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena of the Los Angeles Dodgers has obviously been rubbing somebody the wrong way in the Major League Baseball team’s organization since they announced on May 22 that he’s been suspended for the remainder of the 2015 season. That’s quite a ban since the campaign is only about seven weeks old. According to the Dodgers, Arruebarrena has been more or less kicked off the club for “failing to comply with his contract.”
This statement doesn’t really tell fans anything as there are numerous ways to break the terms of a player contract. The Dodgers wouldn’t expand on the reason for the ban though, so it’s up for conjecture. The club did add that the player has repeatedly failed to comply with the terms of his deal, so it seems like he’s been warned about his conduct before.
Most Major League Baseball suspensions these days concern cheating by taking performance-enhancing substances, however, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Will Smith was just handed an eight-game for having a foreign substance on his arm. Smith was thrown out of his team’s game on May 21 and was handed the suspension by MLB leas than 24 hours later. According to the Brewers and Smith, he’s panning on appealing the ruling. The Brewers ended up losing the game 10-1.
MLB released an official statement regarding the incident which said, “Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Will Smith has received an eight-game suspension for having a foreign substance on his arm during the bottom of the seventh inning of his Club’s Thursday, May 21st game against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field.”

The Toronto Maple Leafs have just made Mike Babcock the highest-paid coach in NHL history by signing him to an eight-year deal worth $50 million. Babcock had spent the past 10 years with the Detroit Red Wings and his contract was due to expire at the end of June. However, the Red Wings gave several teams permission to talk to him, including the Leafs and the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres thought they had a done deal with Babcock, but he spurned them at the last minute to sign with the Leafs.
Toronto was looking for a new bench boss after general manager Dave Nonis and interim head coach Peter Horachek were fired at the end of the regular season along with numerous other front-office personnel and scouts.
