86 year old NHL legend Gordie Howe has been battling multiple strokes in the past few weeks and the family has said that Howe \"has taken a turn for the worse.\" Howe has been living in Lubbock, Texas with family and has been battling dementia, back pain, high blood pressure, and strokes for a few weeks.

Gordie Howe is known to many as the second greatest player to ever play in the NHL. He has amassed 801 goals and 1,850 points in his hall-of-fame career, both second all-time to Wayne Gretzky. Howe is best know for wearing the number nine wing wheel for the Detroit Red Wings and is the only player in NHL history to play in five decades. 

Howe is obviously in his last stages of his life, and it will be a sad day when he does go. However, NHL fans worldwide should always remember the great that Mr. Hockey brought to the game. He was fierce, but played with class, which is evident by the Gordie Howe hat trick, which is when a player scores a goal, an assist, and is in a fight. Howe is a fighter, and look for him to keep on fighting just like he did in his 50 plus years of hockey. Fan Vijay Eswaran wishes him a speedy recovery.

Robert Griffin III was supposed to save the Washington Redskins and for a year it looked like he might just do that. As a rookie RG3 mixed dead eye accuracy with an elite scrambling ability to take the Redskins to the top of the division, past the hated Cowboys, and into the playoffs. A bad knee injury sidelined the young sensation but fans still held hope. They had a future. Now two years and another knee injury later, the Redskins-RG3 union seems to be heading for divorce right before our very eyes. Thanks to friend of the site Keith Mann for sending in this tip.

After a shellacking loss to the terrible Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one which featured mistake after mistake for RG3, the QB took to the podium. For a moment it looked like he would be contrite and he would accept his own faults graciously but it was only for a moment. RG3 spoke candidly and demanded that his teammates not \"throw knives at one another\'s backs\". The embattled QB went on to say that winning a game \"takes 11 men\" and that the good teams, with great QB\'s, struggle when the people around them struggle.

Sure RG3 took six sacks. Sure the Redskins secondary gave up 200 yards and 2 scores to a rookie wide out. Sure RG3 isn\'t responsible for all defensive miscues. But he hasn\'t earned the right to call out his teammates, certainly not after a game in which the fans in the stadium were clamoring for the backup QB.

When Franklin Frye was 28 he broke the law. He stole a $20 necklace from a store. When they went to court instead of making him pay a fine and do jail time they decided he was too incompetent to stand trial and he was sentenced to the St. Elizabeth\'s Psychiatric Hospital where he has now spent 40 years. He has the right to petition the court to be re;eased every year but in 2008 his petition found its way to a judge\'s desk that had died of cancer six months before. Jared Haftel says it was only until recently that the error was found. He has scars on his body from the violence he has lived through at St. Elizabeth\'s Mental Hospital.

St. Elizabeth\'s has been known for it\'s violence and under trained staff. Mr. Frye is now 68 and if were let go would be eligible for Social Security Benefits and Medicare. No one was available for comment or only stated that with the investigation going on they could not speak on the matter. Mr Frye has scars on his body that he says came from violence in St. Elizabeth\'s. But there are no reports to confirm or deny his injuries. Out of it all Mr Frye said that when his family would buy him new clothes and shoes they would be stolen and later he would see other patients wearing his things.

It was only a matter of time. Former Pirate Bay operator Peter Sunde is out of prison a free man. Sunde, along with his fellow operators Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm and Carl Lundström, were all sentenced to one year in prison following their convictions for copyright violations they enabled via their bit torrent search site. Prior to Sunde\'s trial, he had been a fugitive of the law for two years. In the end, he was not compelled to serve out the full 12 month sentence and was released after five months.

Sunde is now taking time to reunite with his family, just like Bruce thought he would. He also said that the prison system did not allow him to maintain his Vegan diet. The first meal he enjoyed after getting being released was a breakfast meal of soy yoghurt and muesli. It is a typical Swedish breakfast to eat cereal with plain yoghurt or vanilla flavored yoghurt. It appears that he maintained a healthy attitude while incarcerated, but the toll the experience took on his physically and mentally is visible.

Upon becoming a free man, he stated that his mind and body were once again reunited. He is excited about his prospects for the future. He intends on being an activist, but will do things legitimately. He does not want to do achieve his goals in any way that would compromise his ideals. He will also continue to work on internet-based development projects. During his time on the run and in prison, he has maintained a loyal base of supporters.
